Dom Joly

January 15th, 2010


If you have ever seen Trigger Happy TV or Made in Britain then you’ll know who Dom Joly is, but what you might not know is that he regularly plays Call of Duty 4 and Modern Warfare 2 on XBox Live. He was even featured on the tv series Batteries Not Included playing Call of Duty 4. Although don’t expect to see him playing much else.

Avatar – The Burning Earth

December 5th, 2009


If you need a few more gamer points on XBox Live then I recommend tracking this down game, Avatar – The Burning Earth. You can get 1000 gamer points in a few minutes by starting the game, going to the side, in the back corner and tapping B constantly. Within a few minutes you will have all the achievements and all the 1000 gamer points. I had a problem tracking down a new copy, or even a preowned copy in stores, so I had to go to eBay to find a copy. You might also be able to find it available on GameFly or Lovefilm.

The game isn’t too bad either, they just made getting the achievements to easy to obtain. The graphic rendering reminds me of the The Simpsons game because it is blended 3D with cartoon styling.

Soulja Boy has the gamertag Souljaboytellem

Rap superstar Soulja Boy is very prominent on XBox Live as “Souljaboytellem”. When you take a look at his gamertag then you can see that he plays a lot of games, but not for too long. The last games he’s played in order are Gears of War 2, XMen Origins Wolverine, UFC 2009 Undisputed, NBA 2K9 and Bionic Command. I thought I had played a lot of games, but he has currently played 138 games but only has a gamerscore of 4777.

He has played everything from “Penny Arcade Adventures” through to “Wheelman” and has even played the cult favourite “Earth Defense Force 2017, but doesn’t seemed to like the Call of Duty games other than COD4. You can see that his currently favourites are “Gears of War 2” and “Madden NFL 09” because his gamerscores are 500 and 275 respectively. He has been open to challenges to play him at Halo 3, although these days he plays Gears of War 2 more.

He doesn’t seem to enjoy games like Guitar Hero 3 and hasn’t even played games like Rockband, but has played games UNO and the {Simpsons~Penny Arcade Adventures}.

Space Invaders Extreme

Space Invaders Extreme

One of my favourite XBox 360 games recently is the awesome Space Invaders Extreme, which took the sheer annoyance of the original Space Invaders getting faster and faster, and added random movement, powerups and extremely large bosses to beat the end of the level. Add into the mix some strange backgrounds and you have what a friend described as Space Invaders on steroids. As it is available through the XBox Live Arcade it is worth the points.
