GSL Week 5: Op. Jedi Gets Kidney-Punched

Well, I once again put up over 4k points in a GSL week, but boy did this week set Operation Jedi back. Let's take a look at the horror and devastation that will take me weeks post-GSL to fix.

Shellshock 2: 255 of 1000

There's a reason people call this game Shells***. Some checkpoints were maddeningly frustrating. I got to Chapter 5 on hard and decided I just couldn't be bothered with it anymore in a GSL. Someday, I'm going to have to suffer this game again, and I'm not looking forward to it.

Madagasgar 2: 275 of 1000

Things went smoothly for a while, until I hit "Wooing Gloria" and had no idea how the hell to impress her with a dive. Tried and failed for 40 minutes. Said F*** it and took it back to blockbuster. Any tips? It wasn't that bad a game, except for that sequence, and I was in no mood for frustration after Shells***.

NCAA Football 09: 400 of 1000

I picked up the most low-hanging fruit of the points here, then brought it back. I'm sure I can rerent this one and get it over 750, I just wasn't in the mood to play a significant amount of football. I'm not too worried about this one, but I don't like that it represents yet another hole I must plug post-GSL. As you can see, once this ends and I hit 100k, the rest of 2009 will be invested in mostly clean-up work. The true quest for a 200k will not even be considered before 2010.

Prince of Persia: 230 of 1250

This game is awesome. After putting up 4k points, I was burned out and in need of something fun to play, so I rented this. I got 230 easy, but didn't have time to continue, as I had to return this to Blockbuster and return to Eau Claire. This one is higher on my priority list for clean-up work, because the game is so much fun. I'll have to play it twice, as I haven't even been trying for "Be gentle with her," and I kinda fell a bunch.

There you have it... 4 new holes, and 0 new completions for the board. What a sad, sad week for Operation Jedi.


  1. I called it shell**** lol, thanks for quoting me

  2. It's an extremely apt title if I've ever heard one =P
