      So, RT Ireland has definitely gone leaps and bounds since the first meet up on Paddy's Day last year. After the first one, there's been two more organised, which includes the one later today. Oh, and they got Burnie to be in this one. I know, pretty big deal. So, I know I'm going to be going to it this time, and I'm planning on bringing a video camera of mine so I can get some footage. I might make a video of it, unless anyone objects. If anyone here happens to read this and is going to it as well, let me know, would be good to meet up again. Just to help you pick me out, I'll be the medium sized guy with a green jumper thing and a mostly empty school bag on my back. Also, I sound 12. See you there!


      P.S. It's 5:30am the day of the event and I'm not asleep. This is going to end so well for me.

      How many people are actually looking at this? I know I'm not the most frequent user of this site, but I do want to reach out to people that are interested in looking at my stuff. If there's people looking at this, than maybe I'll post some more. Also, I'm always up for suggestions on what I can talk about or do or anything like that.

    • If only I have more to say.......

      I know, I've been keeping this thing pretty quiet for the last little while, it's probably because not really much has been going on with me that is of any use. Apart from streaming and sleeping, there's not really much else going on. Oh, and eating, can't forget about eating. However, I still do pop in here from time to time to see what has been going on in here, so it's not like I've abandoned this place or anything.

      The only real bit of news with me that's even slightly RT-related would be Grifball. Went on to captain my own team for the last EUGBL season over at GrifballHub, and it didn't go well. It was a winless season. Oh well, hopefully another team will be willing to pick me up next season. Here's hoping......

      Anyway, can't really think of anything else to add. If anyone is interested in seeing anything else from me, don't be afraid to say something, post a comment here, tweet me something, anything, I will get back. I have a lot of free time now, so yeah. Anyway, thanks for reading.

      I would like to present to you some stuff that I've been doing on the side.

      For one thing, I do a stream, playing games every now and then here:
      www.twitch.tv/davidmcc1989

      Also, I play and edit games for a Grifball team called Amicitia Est Potentia that play over at GrifballHub. The game videos can be found here:

    • Alright, let's try this again

      5 years ago

      DavidMcC1989

      So, here's another attempt at me trying to kick start my Rooster Teeth account. I used to be pretty active, but then life and other stuff started to keep me down. Also, all of the people that were watching this have pretty much gone away, which doesn't help. Never the less, I'm willing to try again.

      Just a quick introduction for those that don't know, my name's David (obviously), I've now been a member of the site for six years. I would like to say that I'm an achievement hunter, but given that my gamerscore is only 120,000, I'm not particularly a good one, but I'm working on that. I'm also working on maybe trying to get a start on YouTube videos, I currently have a couple achievement videos up for another gaming related site. I've also gotten myself back into another RT creation: Grifball, but I'm also not doing too good in that either.

      So, that's basically it. If you have any questions, feel free to leave a message, or send me a tweet @DavidMcC1989. (Please excuse the design, another friend of mine said I should have it like that, and I'm not really complaining)

      I know I haven't been checking this site that much lately (actually, I think I stopped for a while), but I thought I'd come back and see what's changed since I was last here. Also, wanted to check if there's still anyone even checking this page. Anyway, I'm back, hopefully I won't disappear as long as I did the last time.

    • Here we go again......

      DavidMcC1989

      A couple of months ago, I posted a list of games that I wanted to complete coinciding with an achievement challenge, well with another challenge starting this Friday, I thought I would do it again, with a revised game list. I'll also post this on my TrueAchievements page for those who want to help me with sessions and whatnot there (also, I was thinking of posting my journal posts there too). If you do want to help, leave me a message here or on TA, if you just want to show encouragement, that's fine too, just leave a message, if you want to send me cash, I would really like that, but it's not necessary. Here is the list of games that I want to complete. Also, if anyone has any suggestions on the DLC I haven't gotten yet (whether I should buy them or not), that would be nice too.

    • Looking to the future....

      8 years ago

      DavidMcC1989

      As of this writing, my achievement hunting has ben halted for around three weeks due to hardware issues and real-life issues getting in the way (real life ahead of gaming life). However during the time since then, I've been thinking about a few ideas that I've been considering for some time, but haven't done for several reasons.

      01: Reviews - I've been considering doing game reviews for some time now, but I haven't really had the confidence to actually do any, mainly for reasons that include me not being the best person to describe stuff (I could just ramble on about nothing related to the game for half a page), and also there are loads of other places you can get those, including a few people on RT. Another reason is that, as of right now, I don't have enough money to get that many new releases, so if I were to do reviews on games I own, they wouldn't be on new games, or at least recent releases. However, I'm still thinking about the idea of doing reviews for old releases, if there's interest for that. If I were to do some reviews, I would make it a standard review, bring up stuff like gameplay and stuff like that, and I'll try to bring up the acheivements in the game too, for those who want to know how bad the multiplayer achievements are.

      02: Achievements - OK, who on this site doesn't like achievements? I know I do. But I've been thinking about what I can do here to help out with others or to keep others informed on how I'm doing (if anyone's interested.) So, I've been thinking about maybe do some achievement walkthroughs once I get the proper equipment to make videos to upload on YouTube and put here, or maybe put them on the AH page. I've also been thinking about doing something like a weekly recap on my achievement hunting, to keep those who are informed on how I'm doing, what achievements I've unlocked, what games I'm completed, stuff like that. I could try that once I get back on the Xbox.

      Well, they're the main things I've been thinking about doing. There might be a few more ideas floating around in my head, but as of right now, that's the main things. If anyone is interested, feel free to say something, even if it's complaining about me always having ideas but never doing them (I know, I've done this before, but tis is more recent, once I have something set and something to do with this journal regularly, there won't be any need for me to do this again.

      Anyway, thanks for reading.

      PS: I've also been looking into a few more games that I could get since my last play, including a few cheap games to add to my collection, but if you have any recommendations, feel free to add them here too.

      Alright, it's not exactly Fails of the Weak, but at least I made some kind of Halo fail montage, right? Seriously, have you tried uploading a clip to Fails of the Weak? I doubt I'd be able to make it past the 70,000 other clips they've got. Oh well, enough of that, enjoy this video.

    • It's that time again....

      8 years ago

      DavidMcC1989

      There's another Achievement Challenge that's about to begin, challenge number 18, being called the 'AH Anniversary Mega Challenge' starts in two hours, as of when this journal's posted, and it has to be the biggest achievement challenge that's been here yet. Not only does this one have actual Rooster Teeth staff members taking part, but it will also have over 200 gamertags taking part. And I'm one of them. Now, seeing as though this challenge will be on for a month, and with 200 names in the list, including a couple of professional Achievement Hunters, I don't like my chances in this challenge, however it won't stop me from trying. So, what I've done is I've made a little list (like the list I made a few journal post ago) of a few games that I'll play during the challenge hopefully to get me some points, those games include:

      Assassin's Creed
      Assassin's Creed II
      Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood
      Battlefield: Bad Company
      Blur
      Burnout Paradise
      Burnout Revenge
      Call of Duty: Black Ops
      FIFA 09
      FIFA 11
      Final Fantasy XIII
      Full Auto
      Gears of War 2
      Juiced 2: Hot Import Nights
      Just Cause
      Lost Odyssey
      Mass Effect (1 and 2)
      Mirror's Edge
      Ninety Nine Nights
      Perfect Dark Zero
      Pro Evolution Soccer 2009
      Project Gotham Racing 4
      Race Driver: Grid
      Rainbow Six Vegas 2
      The Club
      The Bigs 2
      Samurai Shodown Sen
      Too Human

      It does looks like a big list, but keep in mind that some of those games are alredy half way done or on the verge of completion, which I will try to do during the challenge. However, it won't stop me from looking out for more games to add to the list (but my bank balance might stop me there). Anyway, I'm thinking about keeping track of my progress during the challenge here, whether I do well or crash under the pressure or lack-of-preplanning. Anyway, I'd like to say good luck to anyone reading here that's taken part, and see you on the other side (of the month).

      Oh, and to make things easier on me, my starting gamerscore is: 51,265

      1) I would prefer something relatively a newer game so that people can weigh their decisions if it's a good buy or not

      2) I would ask Sean (he's on my friends list' here) and see if he can hook you up with a logo of some sort... he has a forum here if you're looking for some picture to go with it and he probably will hook you up with one, the ones I made were a very basic template.

      Well first off what games are you wanting to write about? I'm currently working on a review of AC: Brotherhood, but if you have something else that would be cool. As for your focus, there are a few key points that you should always hit. Things like gameplay (is it fun and and innovative), design (does it look good, sound good and play smooth), story (is it interesting and motivate the player to continue), and then possibly other things that are specific to the game, like if it's CoD what are some of the big set pieces that stick in your memory. Also, this being Achievement Hunter, I usually include something about the achievements in the game. Are they easy, fun, innovative, challenging, stupid, etc. I like to split my reviews into three parts: Single Player (story, design, set pieces, etc.), Multiplayer (gameplay, fun factor, technical stuff, etc.) and Achievements (easy, fun, innovative, different, etc.). I then usually give a score of some kind of but a lot of people don't like that. I'm been toying with the idea of posting my own score and then the metacritic score as well. It's a lot to take in, but you should be prepared to work hard if you really want people to take your review seriously. Here is a link to one of my most recent reviews, as well as a link to an increasing list of community written reviews from Achievement Hunter. Let me know if you have any more questions. smiley13.gif

      Well here's a double dosage of good sport-worthy news. If you've been intrigued about American Football, apparently two colleges are playing in (you guessed it). The matchup is the Notre Dame Fighting Irish (a catholic school) against Navy (a military school). IDK when next year it would be played but I'd guess September of next year would be a good bet.

      Well, I'm very intrigued about the sport it's unique, but one of my first matches I saw was the guy I have as my Image which is welterweight UFC fighter Dustin Hazelett. Very good in submission, needs some more work on standing technique (punches and kicks) but he is a very dangerous fighter. I think he was on a reality TV show called 'The Ultimate Fighter' where no-namers and up and comers fight to get a place in the UFC. (He was on Season 7, I believe) But what's really funny is that one of my former co-workers (still keep in touch with him though) looks almost similar to him.

      Our team's signature launch is the shotgun, as me and mikey did earlier. We'll go over that in tonights pre-game practice at 7:00pm, other than that and basic overhead launches, we are a ground tank-heavy team.

      I'll be playing You, me, Mikey (renegade) and either Raven or Scott tonight.

      Ok, cool. I'll contact you about an hour or so before to sort things out.

      But until then, Merry Christmas! smiley0.gif
