Last Game you Played South Park: The Stick of Truth

So I just bought this on Saturday and have been playing it non-stop. So far I’ve found numerous references to previous episodes and other video games and this is probably the only game that has had me in stitches since I started it. I’m a huge fan of South Park & I have to say that this is probably the funniest video game I’ve played in a long time. Some of the notable things I like about the game in particular is opening strangers door to find some pretty weird stuff including a Gimp screwing a Horse. This is one game not to be missed.

Last Movie(s) you Watched – Gravity & 300: Rise of an Empire

So this weekend I watched 2 films and both of them I found to be brilliant. The latest film I watched was the stunning visual masterpiece that is Gravity. This film is extremely tense and actually has a pretty scary concept if you picture yourself in the position of the films leads; Sandra Bullock & George Clooney. The film is definitely a visual treat and should have definitely won the Oscar for Best Picture.

The other film I watched this weekend was 300: Rise of an Empire which is the sequel to Zack Snyder’s 300 & takes place during another battle at the same time Leonidas was leading his Spartan Warriors to take on Xerxes. The film has an excellent cast & Gore galore. The battle sequences in this film are incredible and proves that 3D is still a good choice for films. This a Must see so catch it now while its on at the pictures.

Last TV Show(s) you Watched – Arrow & Skins

So I’ve recently started watching Arrow Season 1 again on my Xbox One to view the brutal origins of Oliver Queen in stunning 1080p Resolution. I am a huge fan of Arrow as Green Arrow is easily one of my favorite comic book characters of all time. Stephen Amell was perfectly cast for this show and I’m extremely happy that it has been renewed for a 3rd season.

The other show I started on this week was the 3rd Series of Skins. I loved the first 2 series of this Teen Drama which follows a group of teens as they go through college while dealing with Drugs, Parties, Sex, Death & Generic Chaos. I’ve been trying to watch Series 3 for a long time now so I’m going to start watching 1 or 2 a day.

As mentioned above, Both of these are Great Shows and Must be seen.

Last YouTube Video you Watched – EE Conga Line Advert

I have liked this advert since it first aired since I’m a big fan of Kevin Bacon. The song is extremely catchy and I personally laugh and dance when I see this advert. One things for sure,EE know how to do advertising right.

Last Book or Article you Read – Nothing

Not been reading anything this week unfortunately

Last Piece of Music you Listened to – Radioactive by Imagine Dragons

Ok I know everyone is probably sick of seeing this under my music section but I really adore this song. Its the only song I can listen to over and over again and never get tired of it. My favorite song of all time and a must listen if you haven’t already heard it.

Last Movie you Watched Halloween Resurrection

I wanted to watch a Halloween movie and this was the only one I had not seen (I think) I can only say it was ok.

Last TV Show you Watched – Lee Evans: Big at the O2

Not a film or movie but hey it was on a DVD and Lee Evans is hilarious he is a great stand up comedian and I recommend Lee Evans to anyone who wants to have a laugh.

Just been doing a bit of research on how well Thief is doing. Watched a few too many though so the IGN review is included below.

Last Game you Played – Persona 4 Golden (Vita)

Persona 4 Golden is one of those games I can come back to an endless amount of times The story, gameplay, soundtrack and characters make it a must own for RPG lovers on the VITA.

Last Movie you Watched – Schindler’s List

Schindler’s list is one of my favorite movies of all time the story is very well told about the story of Oskar Schindler in how he saved over 1000 jewish people, overall its a very long movie but definitely worth a watch.

Last TV Show you Watched – Full Metal Alchemist

Full Metal Alchemist is a Anime about the Elric brothers and their quest to find the philosophers stone, being a big Anime fan I decided to give this a watch after hearing about this from some people.

Last YouTube Video you Watched – Dragonball Z Abridged Episode 39

Dragonball z abridged is a very well done spoof series about the original Dragonball z as the show is one of my top 3 Animes I can just easily get most of the humor and it even got a friend of mine to start watching Dragon ball z.

Last Book or Article you Read – Tales of Zesteria

The ” Tales of ” series isnt one of my favorite series ever but even I am happy about another tales game in development I dont really know a lot about the upcoming tales game but I expect it will be just as good as the rest.

Last Piece of Music you Listened to – Ready Set Go by l’arc en ciel

Ready Steady Go is the theme song for Full Metal Alchemist which I mentioned above I am currently watching most of the song is in japanese but it doesn’t change my opinion that this song just rocks.
