Visual Studio Achievements; they're not Xbox live right?

    @mikexkearney: This is the first time I've ever heard the word "cheevos". I've already resolved to physically assault anyone who ever uses that word around me.

    I consider myself a Renaissance man, sometimes I code, sometimes I game, sometimes I breakdance or even surf.  I'm Bboy360 you can check out my videos on youtube (over 140k views).  So sometimes I get paid to code, sometimes I get paid to model, or breakdancing.

    As for minecraft, they do have Xbox live cheevos.  One reason I single Visual Studio out is because it's made by Microsoft.  If this was boreland C++ or something, I wouldn't care as much.  Microsoft has new windows 8 apps which fit very nicely into the Xbox live eco-system.  It's just crazyness if microsoft has another achievement system.

    Ah, I see you've found my kickstarter movie.  I also have a cheevos app

    @Dan276: It's too bad it didn't get funded in time, you only had $129,768 to go. Based on the synopsis it sounds mindblowing, and I for one would've loved to see it.

    Yes, I know it didn't get funded now for various reasons, but I know there is a big demand to see it.  Stallion83 and the Choskie both agreed to be in it if I flew them to LA.  We'll see if it gets done later for less money.  I could care less cus I don't watch my own movies anyway.

    I know people in LA that are not that deranged, but between Dan276 and Beer28... I have little hope for the mental health state of the city.

    I prefer Cheetos with my gaming, but I find my controller gets very orange.

  • Bigfellahull

    I pick up a lot of chicks at clubs showing my gamerscore on my phone.

    So that's what I am doing wrong! I need to show off the massive number of cheevos I have. Thank you Dan276. You are like my Yoda. You know... if Yoda taught Luke the art of romance.

     

    Also, where can I get a t shirt like yours?

    You can order one of my shirts with this link (I don't make any money off it):

    Also, also to add to my cred; Steven Sinofosky re-tweeted one of my tweets showing a video of me  breakdancing on the MS Surface.

    I wouldn't even LOOK at a guy with a gamerscore under 200,000. Wink

    Oh, snap.

    @Laura10:  Yes, I do have rules for females that have high gamerscore, and yes in that case that person couldn't date someone like myself (one night stands are ok though).  The plot of my reality movie/documentary is what happens when I met a chick with higher gamerscore than myself.  I'd probably clam up and not be able to talk, but I'm not sure what will happen.  The female gamer, Choskie has agreed to be in my movie for that role. She has over 150k Cheevos.  The gamer girl leader Totally Krispix has over 430k cheevos and I'm honored that she's on my xbox live friends list.

    Also if you get my windows phone cheevos app, there is a self worth calculator that determines what level you are on. That's only on the WP8 version though.  There are exceptions like being a celebrity.

    Can we mine these cheevos? I'd be interested in starting a little side gig.
