I had sort of stopped caring about gamerscore since I no longer had any friends that were into it either. But then I noticed I was near a milestone that almost no gamers will hit and I actively and carefully planned out the next 250 or so points I needed to hit it. You can see the milestone in the upper left of the pic

Nice.  I managed to hit 12,345 and have a web browser screen shot of it.  That one's a bit tougher.  Am about 30k GS behind.

 

Finished Gato Roboto last night.  Fun little Metroidvania.  Got the 100% completion, so just 3 achievements left - no health upgrades, 1 hour speed run and sequence break.  I started a no health upgrade run, which will also refresh my memory to get through some stretches.  Viva la Game Pass.

 

Also bought a cheap Android tablet because Nintendo, in their infinite wisdom, won't let you claim the recent mythical Pokemon in the Switch version of Pokemon Home, has to be done in the mobile version.  (What did I say the other day about Nintendo gonna Nintendo?)  Unfortunately, doesn't look like there's much double dipping to be done on achievements.  Won't mind going through Sudoku again, though I also won't mind if it imports my Windows 10 stats and auto pops achievements.

Problem is is that MS isn't even in a console war anymore.

I was going to say something similar in regards to Xbox entering the industry when it was already fairly mature. MS has the unenviable task of having to compete with two extremely entrenched competitors. We live in a bubble where the Xbox brand can be said in the same breath as Nintendo and PlayStation, but globally, the Xbox name doesn't carry that far - Nintendo and PlayStation are like Coke and Pepsi in terms of brand recognition worldwide.

When MS got into the console game, I don't think you could say Sony was extremely entrenched, since they were just coming out of their first console generation.  Granted, Sony was clearly the front runner at that point, but MS was arguably at the height of their "embrace, extend, extinguish" philosophy.  With a war chest bolstered by Windows and Office revenues, they figured they could force their way into the console game.  If Sony could swoop in and take the top spot, why couldn't they?  They were well behind Sony their first time out, but reloaded with the 360 and they may have been the overall console sales winner in North America that gen, even beating out the Wii.  Doesn't look like there are many sources for US/NA console sales for this gen, but it seems like XB1 isn't that far behind the PS4.  MS's problem with the Xbox brand is making inroads in Europe and Japan, which was mentioned.

 

Perhaps MS isn't in a "console war" anymore, but taking a page from Nintendo's book.  As long as they're profitable, Nintendo doesn't care what Sony or MS might be doing, and they've been pretty consistent with that.  There have been some blips (Wii U), but, as they say, Nintendo gonna Nintendo.  They have hands down the best stable of franchises in the industry and can use that to keep them going regardless of what others are doing.  If MS is fine with their profit margins and stock price based on being more service oriented than hardware units pushed, then what do they care about what Sony and Nintendo are doing?  Maybe some occasional tweaks on social media, but the competitiveness is mostly people on the Internet talking about which side is "winning" without really understanding the true game being played.

I've been eyeing the adapter for years and have only seen it go up. Never, ever going to buy it at those prices, so I dusted off the 360 and learned how to import custom songs into RB3. It is STUPID easy.

Was curious, so I checked it out.  That's Gamecube component cable level craziness.

I still say the easiest setting on the first Gears of War is hard compared to the other Gears games.

I think Casual on the first Gears was equal to Normal in the later games, where the Casual setting was easier still.  There were a number of tough stretches in that first game, particularly involving groups of Lambent Wretches.  Aside from those stretches, I think I had an easier time beating the first Gears on Insane than Hardcore because I kept a Longshot on me as much as possible.  The pumping station at the end of Act 3 really sticks out in my memory - the Therons were an absolute PITA on Hardcore with a Lancer and Gnasher, but much more manageable picking them off with the sniper.
