Last Games you Played – BioShock Infinite & Fez

OK so the first game I played this weekend was Fez which I got to review from Polytron (Expect Review soon) and so far I’m really enjoying it. I can’t really remember the last time an indie title captivated me like this one and I am loving every single second of it. Definitely recommend this to anyone.

The last game I played this weekend was BioShock Infinite which believe it or not I am finally playing through for the first time since its release last march. Wow what can I say, The combat and storyline are fantastic and cannot be faulted; Same for Troy Baker & Courtnee Draper who give perfect performances. Brilliant game and can’t wait to complete it and do a review.

Last Movies you Watched – Tropic Thunder & Meet the Feebles

The first film I watched this weekend was Meet the Feebles which is basically The Muppets on Acid. This is one of Peter Jackson’s Pre-Lord of the Rings films and it is bloody hilarious. The film has everything from Gangster walruses and Hedgehogs with Speech Impedaments to a Hippo trying to hang themselves from a chandelier and a Fox singing about their love of Sodomy. This is a fantastic film and literally still has me creased with laughter since watching it. Must watch but not a puppet movie for Kids.

The Last film I watched this weekend was Tropic Thunder which is a war comedy starring Ben Stiller (Meet the Parents), Jack Black (School of Rock) & Robert Downey Jr. (Iron Man) as the main stars. The film revolves around a group of arrogant actors trying to do a war movie which goes terribly wrong when they end up in the golden triangle. In which they must survive against Vietnamese Drug Dealers. This is a brilliant film with a star studded cast and a comedy where everything goes wrong. Must watch.

Last TV Shows you Watched – How I Met Your Mother & Arrow

The first of my 2 TV Shows this weekend is the latest episode of Arrow Season 2 where team Arrow have to deal with the consequences set in place by Deathstroke. The cast is as brilliant as ever and I can’t wait to see how Season 2 ends.

The last show I watched this weekend was How I Met Your Mother and this weeks episode was great. Barney thinks his rehearsal dinner will be held at a laser tag arena while Ted tries to be the next Liberachi. Great show and its sad to think this is the last ever season.

Last YouTube Video you Watched – Godzilla 2014 Trailer

The last youtube video I watched to get myself hyped is the Godzilla 2014 trailer. This film looks incredible and I can’t wait for a few more weeks to see Heisenberg fight a giant dinosaur. Forget Breaking Bad more like Breaking Badass. Check it out below. (P.S. Nothing will beat Breaking Bad)

Last Book or Article you Read – N/A

Not Read anything this week sorry

Last Pieces of Music you Listened to – Another Winter by Anamanaguchi & Cold as Ice by Foreigner

So the last 2 piece of Music I listened to this weekend are these; The fantastic track; Another Winter from the Scott Pilgrim video game soundtrack. Seriously can’t be faulted.

& Cold As Ice as sung by Foreigner which has appeared on one of my favorite shows of all time; Supernatural.

Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars - Spike Chunsoft - Atlus

Last Games you Played – Conception II: Children of the Seven Stars & Etrian Odyssey Untold: The Millennium Girl

So I have been playing Etrian Odyssey Untold and so far I think it’s very good i’m looking forward to playing more considering this is the first I’ve played.

I have been waiting for this game for a while and It’s pretty good so far it’s pretty much like a persona inspired RPG that is very interesting.

Last Movies you Watched – South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut & Dragonball Z: Battle of the Gods

I had Completely forgot how funny this movie was and despite my dislike of musicals some of the songs are actually really catchy.

I have finally gotten around to watching this Film, it was in Japanese with ENG subtitles but that didn’t bother me but what did bother me was the film itself I have to say this is by far the worst DBZ film i’ve ever seen, Bills wasn’t that good of a villain and the fight scenes weren’t that good either it just seems that Toriyama is trying to make a joke out of DBZ.

Last TV Shows you Watched – Arrow & Dragonball: Kai

So unfortunately I’ve decided to stop watching Arrow as the show couldn’t keep my interest so I decided to stop. (This is Matt; For the clip to replace the repetitive Season 1 promo; I’ve included a clip with what I class as a sex scene from the show with my favorite song playing. So enjoy and don’t show this to anyone under 15 unless you want to.)

Dragon Ball Kai is a Remastered series of DBZ I have decided to start watching this again with a possible new season on the way If anyone is wondering this series is a lot worse than the original.

Last YouTube Video you Watched – Dragonball Z: Abridged Episode 41

This Episode wasn’t the greatest but this series is definitely one of the best on Youtube.

Last Book or Article you Read – Dragonball Kai Buu Saga

Apparently Funimation Have been recording the script for the Buu saga for DB Kai which has me pretty excited.

Last Piece of Music you Listened to – Cha-La-Head-Cha-La

So this is the Opening for DBZ, Battle of the gods and DBZ Abridged And I was really happy they brought this back for Battle of the gods, It’s a really catchy song.
