scoore.jpg Several ages ago, we referenced an interview with crazed Xbox 360 gamer ST TheKing, who had just broken 20,000 Gamerscore at that point in time. Well, we can now see his current progress on the awesome blogs, and he's up to 35,428!

But the point of this wasn't the score, actually - it's the awesome blog concept, which you can see by scanning the most popular blogs - here's Major Nelson's one, in which his Xbox 360 talks back in hilarious ways: "You would think I had died and gone to heaven when Major Nelson showed up to play. Gamer score stands at 3437. He played UNO gaining 1 achievement, Marble Blast Ultra, and did it while drooling over my awesome graphics and sound."

A good summary of how it works was recently posted in the UK Guardian, noting that Microsoft outputs all of your play stats, and explaining: "Users are already finding ways to repurpose and even humanise this Xbox 360 XML stream. Two internet professionals from Chicago set up, allowing Xbox owners to enter their gamertag... and then view a daily blog, "written" by their machine. The blog doesn't just list what you played and when; the creators have built in dozens of phrases, so the resulting blogs read like they've been created by sentient humans."

[Mind you, I don't want to start one, actually, because my X360 will come off all needy and I'll start to empathize with it, and then we'll start fighting and have to get a trial separation.]
