Last Game you Played – Injustice: Gods Among Us: Ultimate Edition

So I recently decided to have a go on Injustice since I haven’t played it in quite a while mainly so I could keep practicing the different combos with all the characters (Especially with my favorite; Green Arrow). Injustice is a fantastic game and easily one of my favorite fighting games to date. This game is a must buy and I hope the rumors of a sequel are true; Hell I hope we get Marvel vs DC soon. That would kick ass.

Last Movie you Watched – Godzilla (2014)

Went to the cinema this week to finally see the return of The King of Monsters and while the film was really good, It could have been much better. The film follows US Soldier; Ford Brody (Aaron Taylor Johnson; Kick-Ass) who with the help of his father; Joe Brody (Bryan Cranston; Breaking Bad) sets out to discover the truth behind his Mother’s death which is connected to high level sound waves. Shortly after; They soon realize that whatever made the sound was not human. Great film but as I said; It could have been better.

Last TV Show you Watched – 24

Just started on 24 season 1 for the first time and I seriously don’t know how I went this long without watching it. I started on Wednesday and have been gripped since episode 1. The show follows CTU (Counter Terrorist Unit) agent Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland; MGSV: GZ) as he attempts to stop an assassination attempt on a presidential candidate while also trying to protect his wife and daughter who are held hostage. This show is a must watch for anyone and I can’t wait to start Season 2.

Last YouTube Video you Watched – The Walking Dead Honest Trailer

So I was also introduced to Honest Trailers this week and The Walking Dead one is my favorite by far. There is quite a few hilarious moments in this including Zombie Extra Drinking Water, Shane Rubbing his Head & Of course; Who could forget? DALE FACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

*Please Be Warned that this Honest Trailer contains spoilers from The Walking Dead Seasons 1,2 & 3 so you have been warned*

Last Book or Article you Read – Marvel Civil War

As a huge comic book fan; I have decided to revisit all of my graphic novels and have decided to start with the god of Marvel graphic novels; Civil War. In Civil War; A team of inexperienced superheroes get into a battle with highly dangerous villains who end up blowing up Connecticut; Killing many innocent people (including a school full of kids.) This forces the humans to enforce the Superhero registration act in which Superheroes must reveal there true identity. This causes a dispute between heroes as Captain America leads a rebellion (including Daredevil, The Punisher & Hercules) against the Superheroes who signed up to the regime led by Iron Man (along with Mr. Fantastic & Yellowjacket). Soon after a huge war breaks out; One that the Marvel Universe may never be able to come back from.

Last Piece of Music you Listened to – Sleepwalking by The Chain Gang of 1974

I seriously don’t know how this happened since I haven’t played Grand Theft Auto V recently but I have been listening to the fantastic song “Sleepwalking” from The Chain Gang of 1974. This is such a great and catchy song and I can’t stop listening to it.

Last Game you Played – Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Z

Being A big fan of DBZ I was going to play this game sooner or later and so far I think it’s really fun but I have to say it needs to be played online with the single player mode not being good enough at all.

Last Movie you Watched – Mulan

Mulan is definitely one of my top 3 Disney movies I just love the story about A woman who proves she can be as good as any man can be by joining the army in her Fathers stead also it includes my favorite Disney song ” Make A Man Out Of You ”.

This is an Anime about a group of Giant sword wielding women who hunt demon like creatures called Yoma, I’ve nearly finished this show but the fight scenes and gore make it a very fun Anime to watch.

So this episode was released recently and it is decently funny but it also has the creepiest rendition of the Mr Sandman song I’ve ever heard.

Last YouTube Video you Watched – ASUS z97 -ws by Linus Tech Tips

Linus is a computer wizard that does computer hardware reviews and in this specif video he talks about a board that he particularly likes this i an Asus board that takes pretty much all of the unnecessary features out and leaves the board with a back to basic design and lower power usage.

Last Book or Article you Read – N/A

Nothing this week guys, Sorry.

Last Piece of Music you Listened to – Ragga Bomb by Skrillex

Well its a dub step song that Skrillex did with the Ragga twins, the song is good for if you like loud bass drops and the video seems to me ( and this is just my opinion) some kind of reference to star wars, as the actors in the song gather in a warehouse type building and fight with light swords and are dressed in a full cover cloakish type thing.
