Gamers only need three things to conquer the (virtual) world. A Big Gulp, a comfy recliner, and blazing fast internet like Verizon FiOS, because everyone knows that lag will literally be the death of you. My #LifeonFiOS has enabled me to do these essential 9 things without a hiccup, like the boss I am, seeing as FiOS has been named the fastest ISP since PCMag began testing in 2010!
#1: Blast more zombies in a minute and finally beat that 13 year old named “Predator”
You know which kid I’m talking about. The one who talks more smack than Kobe Bryant. If his mother heard him, she’d send him to bed without supper. What’s worse is that his scores are always ridiculous, you know, because he doesn’t have time sucking commitments like children, a spouse or a job. Forget about finding extra time, all I need is Verizon FiOS speed! Time to blast some zombies and take him down a peg.
#2: Bring Home More Rings
NBA, MLB, NFL, NHL … so many rings, so little time. Madden has nothing on Verizon.
Fun fact: There are 82 games in a season of NBA 2K. Each game is about 20 minutes. That’s 1,640 minutes or 27 hours of game time.
#3: Win a Million Dollars
MLB 2k is known for it’s Million Dollar Challenge. It used to be “easy” with the first person to throw a perfect game winning all the loot. But now I have to hone my skills, it’s not enough to pitch a perfect game. I also have to have a better game than everyone else who achieves it. I’m starting to wear out the “restart”, but luckily never have to worry about glitches or hangups!
#4 Once You Get Dough, You Gotta Spend It
Get money. Spend a few bills – 200 million to be exact, in GTA 5, and unlock the “Spend a Lot of Cheddar. ” Need ideas? Business, cars, boats even an airport can be bought.
#5 Level 70 in Diablo 3
60 Hours, 48 Big Gulps, 63 bags of chips, and one bladder infection later lands you squarely at level 70. Congratulations to me! I’m sure using one of my sick days was worth it and the bonus about this is that you’ll be about half way to unlock the 1,000,000 undead killed achievement. Back in the day, I used to sit with my back towards my boyfriend as we crushed the first Diablo game together in the computer room. At times we would yell in frustration because one of us would get kicked off or would freeze during battle. Those days are long gone, and my meat cleaver is honed and ready to reap some souls.
#6 Team Death Match
Nothing shuts up the prodigy like a little team death match in COD. The cherry on top? Make it a multi-kill and take out his cronies too. Just don’t be the one caught in a lag – and you won’t with FiOS.
#7 Finally Beat the Bunker Level in Little Big Planet
The Bunker is the second stage in The Wilderness and it’s arguably one of the hardest levels in the game. Part of the problem is that three players are required to complete one of the challenges. This makes it even harder because any player can die at any point throughout the level. I’m just saying – if Jimmy doesn’t start pulling his own weight, I’m going to put a tack on his computer chair.
#8 Rack Up 50,000 Points in Disney Infinity
There are 50 achievements with a total of 1000 points in Disney Infinity.
#9 Create The Ultimate MineCraft Island
The craziest ones we have seen so far?
- An island floating in the ocean with 5 fingers.
- An island suspended in the sky with a waterfall flowing down to the ocean.
- One in the shape of a skull.
And don’t even get us started on crazy creations like Zelda, My Little Pony and T-Rex.
Even though I am a Verizon #LifeonFiOS Ambassador and I have received product or services for this post, they have not influenced what I’ve said. All opinions and thoughts are 100% honest and mine, all mine.
