    Ye Olde Curbside

    The Curbside!
    No longer just for bums and hobos!

    Introduction

    I'm Curb, but I've gone by many names here on PS3T and PSN over the years. I've been known variously on PSN as curbsideprophet, omgitscurbside, IAmInvictus, TheRime, therimescheme, and finally Thunder_Boomer. On PS3T you've known and loved me as curbsideprophet, Invictus and now Curb.I've been a member of varying levels of activity on PS3T since May of 2009. I've seen changes bad and good come to PS3T over the years, and stuck it out, so I consider myself something of an old-timer here along with a handful of others. I started here and bugged the crap out of people like Bounce, ScoopyD17, Axelrod, TraitorJoe and others, doing a trophy guide here and there and generally being a nuisance. However, in October of 2009 talk started building by a few members that it would be really cool to have a Review Team, as at that time there was a lot of talk of expanding the site into new areas to provide a more comprehensive PS3 gaming site.

    Everyone was talking but I didn't see a lot getting done, so I talked to Breakpoint about actually doing something, and within a few days I found myself at the head of the Review Team. The team has undergone many iterations since then, some with me and some without.

    I've found myself with varying degrees of free time since then, which is why I've left and re-joined the team three or four times now. I've written a few trophy guides for the site as well as several reviews, the links to which I'll include further down. I also enjoy playing Xbox, so in this checklist I'll also include some of my achievements I'm particularly proud of. Also, as a fun note, Ammos and I were the first to create checklists on the site, so you can thank the two of us for all of these other ones .

    But beyond gaming and the site, here's a little more information you may or may not care about. My real name is Steve, and I live in the Lake Tahoe area. It's probably the most beautiful place in these United States, which record snowfall and amazing skiing in the winter, and beautiful summers with awesome swimming, water skiing, biking and hiking. I'm 17 (soon to be 18), and I currently go to a ski school which afford me the opportunity to ski race almost daily. I generally spend three to five hours on the hill in the morning, and then go to school until later in the evening. It means a longer day than most schools, but it's totally worth it.I also read and write a lot. It's debatable whether I game or write more, but I love them both and I don't see myself ever letting go of either.

    But that's enough about me. I'm sure you only care about my (currently meager) checklist, so continue on!

    Trophy/Achievement Checklist

    First, a little about my gaming habits. My enjoy FPS games, RTS/TBS games, and RPG games, with the occasional title from other genres thrown in. For me, it's about fun gameplay and an excellent story, so while graphics and such things are nice they aren't a deal-breaker for me. Probably my favorite game series in order are Mass Effect, God of War, Halo, Dead Space and Assassin's Creed.

    As far as trophy/achievement hunting goes, I'm not an addict to trophies or achievements themselves. I won't whore myself with an easy or high-scoring game just to boost my trophy level or gamerscore; I only play the games I genuinely enjoy. However, playing those games I do ten to be a completionist. I'll go for platinum/100% completion, and/or 1000+ gamerscore in every game I have.

    That said, I'm not unreasonable. If I lost interest while boosting my rank all the way to General in F.E.A.R. 2 I'm not going to keep playing it just to get the completion; it's only if I still enjoy the game. With that out of the way, here's the list so far.

    PSN Info:
    • PSN ID: Thunder_Boomer
    • Trophy Level: 5 - 25%
    • Trophy Count: 2 || 11 || 21 || 55

    God of War

    That's all so far. I'll add games for either system when I start them. We're now closing - you don't have to go home, but you can't stay here.

    God of War II is platinum number two. I'll be spending the immediate future in Warhawk and Halo: Reach, but I'll probably start on either Chains of Olympus or God of War III soon. Just don't know if I want to finish the trilogy or get Origins out of the way first.
