The Weekend Playlist – Week ending 20th November 2016

Hello everyone and welcome to the weekend playlist where we give you our personal thoughts on what has been occupying our weekends.

This week’s weekend playlist consists of all of our editors however Jonnie’s segment will be updated (FIXED NOW) since a technical glitch has erased his suggestions apart from his game so without further ado.

Last Game(s) Played – Assassin’s Creed II  & The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim – Special Edition

So I’ve played a few games this weekend with the one that I have spent the most time on being Assassin’s Creed II. Now I bought the Ezio Collection earlier on in the week to play at Midnight on launch because I’m a huge fan of the Assassin’s Creed series in particular the games with Ezio Auditore. So I started off with my favorite entry in the series; Assassin’s Creed II which might even be one of my all-time favorite games ever made. So far the graphical improvements are minimal and I’ve only encountered 1 gltich so far but otherwise a pretty good port and not worth the grief it’s getting off people on social media.

The only other game I’ve been playing this week is The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition. I’ve been bashing this game for the past few weeks and now I’m getting closer and closer to the platinum trophy that I can almost taste it so I’m hoping to go for that within the next week.

Last Movie Watched – Ouija: Origin of Evil

So I watched this a few weeks ago with friends at the cinema and it actually made me jump a few times (something horror movies these days rarely do to me). So since my mother has recently got back from a 2 week break; I decided to watch this with her. Origin of Evil is a pretty good movie about a fake psychic who out of curiosity buys a Ouija board. During the night, her youngest daughter starts to play with the board and brings through a malevolent force which not only gives the little girl actual clairvoyant abilities but changes her entire life forever.

Last TV Show Watched – The Flash

So I’ve decided to take a break from watching Friends this week and caught up on The Flash season 3. The episode was really good in my own personal opinion because it tackled multiple threats and brought into the mix more of the actual enemy of the season in Alchemy (Voiced by Tobin Bell from Saw). I also really liked this episode since it showed more of the aftermath of Barry creating the Flashpoint timeline and it was just upsetting to see what could be one of the final episodes from one of my favorite characters in the show.

Last YouTube video(s) Watched – Spider-Man PS4 Trailer

So on YouTube this week I decided to revisit some game trailers and this trailer is one of the few I watch over and over again. When I was watching this trailer when it was announced at E3 this year; I was amazed by just how good it looked and I can probably say that this might actually be my most anticipated game right now. It’s probably the most excited I’ve been for a game in a while now and when you consider that next year is also going to see the release of the Nintendo Switch, South Park &  Crash Bandicoot Remastered (All of which I’ve been really excited for), it’s just incredible to think that Spider-Man has managed to have such an impact. Roll on 2017 which I think will be the year of Spider-Man.

Last Piece of Music listened to – Iron – Woodkid

So like I said under games; I recently bought Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection and so I decided to start revisiting some of the music from Assassin’s Creed (both the games and the trailers) and so I last listened to this awesome piece of music from the trailer for Assassin’s Creed: Revelations.

Last Game(s) Played – Pokemon Soul Silver

I recently purchased this game again (Despite the ridiculous price that it has nowadays), and it is just as good as I remember it, definitely the best Pokemon game of all time, I know it is hard to recommend due to how rare and expensive it is, but I would really recommend it, you will not be disappointed….Now all there is to do is wait for Sun and Moon

Last Movie Watched – 12 Years A Slave

Considering all the praise this film has, I basically had to watch it, overall I believe it deserves the praise it has, some very powerful scenes and fantastic performances from Chiwetel Ejiofor and Michael Fassbender.

Last TV Show Watched – The Walking Dead

I’m not gonna spoil this series, all I’ll say is this season has been the most interesting that Walking Dead has done since Season 1 to be honest, probably due to Negan.

Last Piece of Music listened to – Various Yoko Shimomura Music pieces

I’ve mainly been listening to Kingdom Hearts music and a little bit of Radiant Historia, can’t wait to see what she does with FFXV, she is really the best composer in gaming since Nobuo Uematsu in my opinion.

Tenacious Tea Gaming; YouTuber and Editor at UGNN:


Last Game Played – Dishonored 2

This week I have been playing Dishonored 2 and I have been really enjoying it. The game has loads to do and I think its an amazing game. I recommend this brilliant sequel to anyone who played and enjoyed the first Dishonored game.

Last Movie Watched – Rush

I decided to watch this great movie again directed by Ron Howard. The movie follows the rivalry between James hunt and Niki lauda. The movie stars, Chris Hemsworth (Hunt) and Daniel Bruhl (Lauda) and they both portrayed the characters, really really well. I’m also a Huge F1 fan so this movie means more to me.
