X360 Weekender (4) Day Two

Traditionally, the middle day of every X360 Weekender has been the best of the three for the amount of unlocks and in what is the fourth instalment, the tradition continued due to a new record of 29 achievements unlocked beating the previous record of 27 (27/3/11 and 16/6/13) and brought up the total unlocked in the Weekender's to 117 with a day still to go in this one.

Back on the RoadFirst Time BuyerThe day began with Driver:San Francisco which saw five unlocks in between 1.50-4.50am beginning with First Time Driver (5G) for buying my first garage and Back on the Road (10G) drove in for completing Chapter 1.

Lights, Camera, Action!Eyes on the CityEyes on the City (20G) looked in for completing Chapter 2 and minutes later, Lights, Camera, Action! (5G) shot in for unlocking the first movie challenge.

First VictoryAgainst the OddsAgainst the Odds (20G) ended the racer's stint with the completion of Chapter 3 so five unlocks for 60G.The afternoon session began with Sonic 3 which saw no unlocks and next was Happy Wars which is a new addition to my list but very welcome with eleven unlocks scored beginning with First Victory (10G) for attaining a maiden victory on the game.

BOT HunterNobody Calls Me NoobNobody Calls Me Noob (20G) unlocked for completing all of the tutorials and was swiftly followed by BOT Hunter (30G) for attaining a victory in the training mode.

The Legend BeginsThe Best ItemsThe Best Items (20G) presented itself after receiving a level ten item while The Legend Begins (10G) popped up for being mentioned in the 'Hero' pop-up at the end of a match.

Treasure HunterSpin Spin SpinnerSpin Spin Spinner (10G) spun in for playing on the Happy Spinner game and thankfully I won an item while doing so which saw Treasure Hunter (20G) pop up for receiving a premium item.
All Rounder
MOD 0MOD 0 (10G) unlocked for levelling up an item while All Rounder (10G) swung in for playing as a Warrior/Cleric or Mage twice each during a single match.
Gang Up
Hello WorldGang Up (10G) huddled up for launching a team skill and earning a successful kill as a result and Hello World (10G) ended the stint after using four messages during a match.

The Ol' SwitcherooOn a String A return to disc based play saw Rugby League Live 2 in the tray and saw three unlocks which started with The Ol' Switcheroo (15G) after winning a match while using no assists in player switching and in the same game,  On a String (15G) popped up after scoring a try via a grubber kick.

CherryHot PotatoThe two hour session which focused around the Warriors' Super League push from 2012 ended with Hot Potato (15G) which ironically came after a cool rally of seven passes in a single tackle and meant after four games played, 19 unlocks for the day so far. Back to the arcade next with Pacman and four unlocks here began with Cherry (5G) for eating the cherry that appeared in the inaugural puzzle.

OrangeStrawberryStrawberry (5G) chomped in for eating the strawberry in round two with Orange (10G) completing a fruity five minutes for eating the Orange found in round three.

TokenGhostAll GhostsThe short session ended with All Ghosts (10G) for eating all four ghosts in succession after a single power pellet. The Xbox took a break and I went onto Windows 8 to play i-Stunt 2 which saw four unlocks beginning with Token Ghost (5G) for collecting a token after death while completing the level.

FalconAfterLifeAfterlife (5G) faithfully entered for completing a level after falling off the snowboard with Falcon (5G) swooping in for flying for seven seconds and landing in style.

2 Button Mentor in 2010 FIFA World CupMr PotatoMr Potato (5G) continued the food themed titles with the dismembering of Stuntman which was quite gruesome as he flew into a circular saw which ended him and the Windows 8 session.  2010 FIFA World Cup was selected as the host of what would be the record breaking 28th achievement of the day which came in the form of 2 Button Mentor (10G) for playing and winning a game where one user is on '2 button' controls and the unlocking is shown in the clip below.
 The night had one last unlock though as a quick jump to Windows 8 and the booting of AlphaJax saw the surprising pop of Expeditiousness (5G) for being the first player on the table to use a Triple Word Bonus tile and in doing so brought the day's haul to a new record of 29 achievements resulting in an accumulation of 330G.
The previous joint-record holding days saw more gamerscore accumulated but it was due to the rarity of some of the achievements whereas in today's instance, most of the unlocks were fairly easy but even so they made for a great day which I hope will be closely matched in the third and final day of the weekend.
