Last Game you Played – Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn

Recently got this to review on PS4 and all I can say is that this game has got me into MMO. The graphics are stunning (to me anyway) and the game plays extremely smooth plus on top of everything else there is a huge open world to explore and plenty of quests to do. A Must buy for any PS4 Owner.

Last Movie you Watched – X-Men: First Class

So I decided to get e”X”cited for X-Men: Days of Future Past about a month early and so I watched First Class. This film is easily the best X-Men film to date with a fantastic storyline aswell as an excellent cast including James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Jennifer Lawrence and the one & only “Kevin Bacon”. Include the addition of loads of obscure Mutants such as Banshee, Azazel & Darwin aswell as popular mutants such as Emma Frost, Beast & Mystique aswell as a special cameo from Wolverine (Hugh Jackman) who passes on a friendly message to McAvoy & Fassbender. Brilliant Film.

Last TV Show you Watched – The Tomorrow People & Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

This weekend I’ve been watching 2 TV Shows both with an element of Science Fiction to them. First Show I watched this weekend was The Tomorrow People about a group of teens who have superpowers called the 3 T’s (Telepathy, Telekinesis & Teleportation) who must protect their own kind from a human organization called Ultra who want to kill them. I actually think the show is nearing the end of its first season and its getting more and more twists by the second.  I am loving this show at the moment and I definitely hope it gets renewed for a 2nd season.

The 2nd show I watched this week was Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. set in the same world as The Avengers and revolves around a special team of S.H.I.E.L.D. Agents led by Deadman; Agent Phil Coulson who trys to recruit new superpowered beings aswell as finding out how he came back from the dead. This show despite what critics say is brilliant and definitely takes its influence from the Avengers films. Like Tomorrow People, This show has got so many twists and turns it could be a crash test dummy race course. Great Show, Great Cast, Hope it gets a season 2.

Last YouTube Video you Watched – Peanuts Trailer

Just found out about the new Peanuts film not long ago and can’t wait to revisit some classic childhood memories with Snoopy & Charlie Brown. Peanuts will be in cinemas thanks to 20th Century Fox next November.

Last Piece of Music you Listened to – The Hell of It by Paul Williams

Been listening to loads of music this week but the last piece I heard was this brilliant song called The Hell of It by Paul Williams from cult classic movie; The Phantom of the Paradise. Very fun song and very very catchy.

Last Game you Played – The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Legendary Edition

I have been playing this game pretty much non-stop for 2 weeks it’s so addicting and The extra DLC included in the Legendary Edition seal the deal for me its a must own for a game to pass the time

Last Movie you Watched – N/A

To be honest there are no movies I have been watching recently It’s been all games and TV shows 

Last TV Show you Watched – Dexter & Arrow

So I have FINALLY finished Dexter after all this time And i’m confident in saying that it’s the best show I’ve seen since Breaking Bad but admittedly the final season is the worst and it’s unfortunate that such a good show ends on a low point.

I have Recently started watching Arrow after being pestered into watching it by a certain Someone who shall not be named……Matt but anyway so far its nothing special but i’m willing to give it a fair chance to see if it gets better.

Last YouTube Video you Watched – Angry Video Game Nerd; Crazy Castle

Like most episodes of AVGN this has lot’s of swearing and a AWESOME fight between AVGN and Bugs Bunny, Its Hilarious.

Last Game you Played – The Last of Us

A game I loved when it came out the opening of the game was devastating but what a beginning to remember. Naughty Dog really out did themselves on this game.

Last Movie you Watched – Captain America: The Winter Soldier

I went to the cinemas not long ago with Matt and we saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier but unfortunately I couldn’t watch all of it as I came down with something while the film was on. I really didn’t like walking out of the film like I did but from what I saw of the film, I really enjoyed it.

Last TV Show you Watched – Person of Interest

A brilliant show about an ex military man being hired by a man who has built a super computer which can see every bit or terrorist activity and its up to the ex military man to go and protect or stop the perp from killing people.
