April Cblog Xbox Scavenger Hunt


This wacky office prank backfired because no one knew that Earl was allergic to aluminum. Earl died.


Oh, I loved all those pranks you guys posted on April Fool's Day. Whew.

Now that we have the obligatory April Fool's Day tittering out of the way, I'm bringing good news fellow Destructoiderianziens.

Spring has sprung. All over your face. And with the sprung, brings new challenges for you to tackle, much like all those neglected stains on the carpet you've been meaning to clean.

Again, a reminder, you guys are tussling over the winner's choice of a 4000 MS point card or a free year of Xbox Live.

To carry over from previous months, we're going to have a breakdown of achievements by points, get the points to complete the challenges. Do part of one and be assigned partial credit for your efforts.

How the tally at the end will work is that the entrant with the highest score will win the prize. In the event of a tie, a randomizer will be used to determine a winner from the pool of tied scores.

I'm not posting the scoreboard because I'm still collecting scores for March. I was very busy this month so I was unable to keep up on the tally and I'm behind right now.

Hopefully this month's games will invigorate those of you who've been sitting on your laurels waiting for a game that really speaks to you and your mainstream tastes.

This month's Challenges are...

ROCK BAND - 50 Points

This man could not afford Rock Band, thus he is teh suck

Clear all the "Big in..." Achievements for 2 points apiece. Clear the "Hall of Fame" achievement for 14 points.

Instead of telling you all about Rock Band, I have prepared this month's description as a rock opera.

"April Challenges" by DVDdesign

(guitar) Weeee-awww, ca-chunga-chunga-chunga-chunga. dun-dun-duhhhh, dee-dee-dee-doo-doo.

(bass) thump thump thump thump thump thump thump thump thump thump thump thump thump thump thump thump.

(Vocals) OH YEAH!!!!! WHOOO!

*** - These are all on Band World Tour, so you either need to get some friends fast, or be able to do this VERY soon.

HALO 3 - 40 Points

I'll feel insulted if I have to explain this picture to anyone.

2 points for each skull achievement, 2 points for each campaign meta-game achievement. 12 points for Marathon Man

'Bout damn time I got around to it, eh?

After analyizing charts and graphs and listening to people bitch about having to play Yaris, I figured I'd drag out 'ol stand-by here for a good turn and some easier challenges.
I'm sure a few of you already have some of these, so get 'em locked in early and let me know if you've done them already.

And the bonus challenge...

It's the worst one yet. Oh holy hell. Duck and cover.


UNO - Double your point total for the month

It's like this, but with the potential to see a lot more man ass over XBL, sadly.

You're aiming to unlock the Uno Shark and Devotee achievements. You must get both for it to count.

Uno will be hosted sporadically through April on FNF with Drunken Uno Night. Make enemies and fuck them over while offering slobbery threats through your 6 shots of Jagermeister.

There's a potential 90 points up for grabs this month.

Entries for this month must be completed either by the end of the month, or before the last person to contact me finishes the challenges. If a new entrant joins the contest, they must notify me via email @gmail.com for entry to extend your deadline until the end of the month.

Next Month, Grand Theft Auto will be one of the challenges for May, so keep that in your budget. May's challenges will be posted early, just like this month and March were, so keep an eye out.

About BluDesignone of us since 11:49 AM on 11.10.2006

I own a FamPuter, which is a 100% fake Famicom. And I do own Super Mario Bros. and Rockman 2 for it, which you don't. :P

I'm a 34 year old gamer. I cannot hang out with most of you, and you should not contact me to buy you cheap wine or cigarettes. I do not like jail. Seriously, I own all three consoles and I don't discriminate. Gaming is for fun, not for sissy slapfights. If you consider yourself partial to a particular console, I don't care why you don't own other consoles, I don't want to hear about it. If you're going to bitch about something, you'd better bring some hard evidence of why you're complaining if you want to cry on my shoulder.

Enjoy this wonderful picture of 2 generations coming together at last...
