Yoshi's New Island - Arzest - Nintendo

Last Game you Played – Yoshi’s New Island

So been playing this recently since I’m reviewing it for Nintendo and I am loving every second of the game. It has brought back a lot of great memories that I have, Mainly considering my Grandmother (May she rest in peace) got me this as my first video game and pretty much resulted in me becoming a gamer. Absolutely fantastic game and I can’t wait to publish the review next week.

Last Movie you Watched – School of Rock

So I got this on Blu-Ray when I was in Florida last October and decided to give it a watch since I haven’t seen it in years. Absolutely adore this film since it has a fantastic soundtrack and Jack Black delivers a comical and yet very inspirational role as the Rocker who assumes his best friends Identity to teach at a prep school. Very funny film and a must watch.

Last TV Show you Watched – Smallville

Decided to take a break from Game of Thrones for a little while and started on Smallville again from Season 1. This show was brilliant and had an excellent cast and an excellent soundtrack. Smallville looks into the teenage years of Superman and shows that Superman had many enemies and friends before he even donned the cape. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes Comic Books, Superman, Superheroes or Generic Action. Seriously go out and buy all 10 seasons now. You won’t regret it.

Last YouTube Video you Watched – Spider-Man Evian Baby Advert

I nearly ended up putting Final Fantasy X HD’s Opening cinematic on here however I watched this last second and loved every part of it. The advert is designed to promote Evian Water and upcoming superhero flick; The Amazing Spider-Man 2. The ad shows Spidey swinging through the city when he sees a baby version of himself and commences in a dance off with his baby form. This is easily one of my favorite adverts now.

Last Book or Article you Read – The Goonies 2 is Happening

I read this earlier this morning and all I can say is I am bursting with joy. The Goonies is easily one of my favorite films from the 1980’s (Even though I’m a 90’s kid) and I am eagerly anticipating this sequel along with the Wreck It Ralph Sequel & Police Academy Remake. Lets just hope they don’t get screwed up.

Last Game you Played – Bravely Default

Finally a reason to play on my 3DS again Bravely Default is a very good JRPG that plays a lot like Final Fantasy V which is a great game i’m looking forward to playing more.

Last Movie you Watched – The Grey

I like most films with Liam Neeson in them but The Grey is a very good thriller and i would recommend it highly.
