Trophy Unlocked: Couch Potato

[Disclaimer: This blog does not represent the views or opinions of Enkido as he exists in a sane state and he cannot be held responsible for the content expressed in this article. He's a cookie monster. Also, cocks.]

So some of you may have heard about that new Sony DVR "torne" that was recently announced for the PS3 in Japan... And NOT in North America. Incidentally did we do something wrong that I should be aware of?


Excuse me for a second readers...

Alright, moving on. It seems that Sony is considering adding Trophies to this new service. Yes trophies... for sitting on your ass and watching T.V. Now my first thought went something like this:

But then I started thinking. I do that sometimes, it is rarely productive, but sometimes entertaining. This could actually be very interesting. There are a ton of Trophies that could be made just for watching T.V. Now, I'm not all that into trophies and I'm far from a Trophy/Achievement whore, but just imagine with me what this could be like. I'm not really in favor of this but I cannot allow the comedic potential of the idea to go to waste.

Some examples I thought of:
Couch Potato
Forgo responsibility and social interaction in favor of T.V.

PSP Potato
Use the PSP to forgo responsibility and social interaction in favor of T.V.

Record a large number of late night programs.

True Fan
Record and keep on season of an entire series.

Avoid the light of day by viewing T.V. for 10 hours strait.

Record 10 full movies.

Threat to the Industry
Record 50 full movies.

Well Informed.
Record a weeks worth of daily news programs.

Record a months worth of daily news programs.

Hand in the Cookie Jar
Record an adult oriented program.

Cookie Monster
Make of it what you will...

I think the idea is ridiculous, but it is fun to come up with trophies like this. What kind of trophies would you guys like to see? How many of these trophies would you be eligible for already?

About Enkidoone of us since 3:32 PM on 12.30.2009

But doctor, I am Pagliachi.

I'm 22 years old and studying Rock Climbing, while occasionally working toward a degree in economics. Probably the best way for me to describe my personality is like this.

(living the dream and letting it be)

I got into video games at around 9 years old when I got my first system, a Gameboy pocket...

Moving on.

Systems that I currently own:
PS3(full backwards compatible, 500Gigs)PSN->Enkido-dono
Gameboy Advance SP
Gameboy Pocket(yes, I still have it and it works)

Things I like (other than video games):
Music, a lot
Learning Guitar
Rock Climbing

My Destructoid interview by LawofThermoDynamics who did a fine job of making my sorry ass presentable. (Psst, he has more in his interview index)

Front Pageness:
irock Review, based off of this by Beyamor(becasue I'm not witty enough to get Frontpage on my own yet)

Awesome Stuff:

The Decoder Ring, gifted to me by Occams Electric Toothbrush, with the blessings of the Shadow Council. Lurkers, behold and despair.

I present Enkirby, lovechild of Beyamor and boredom, though rumors of a scandal with awesomeness abound.

My next gaming system, custom made by Renegade Panda.

Law and I, bringing the heat.

A Space Marinenkido, again by Beyamor, who won't let me forget how much cooler he is than me.
