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 only consists of me due to everybody else being busy so without further ado let’s get to it.

Last Game Played – Final Fantasy VII
So I’ve been playing a wide variety of games this week but after playing quite a bit of Sword Art Online Re: Hollow Fragment; I decided to try a completely different JRPG and so I decided to actually attempt to finally finish Final Fantasy VII. So far I have nearly finished what would’ve been disc 1 in the PlayStation 1 version and I am loving every second of the story. There have been some fantastic scenes including a Sephiroth flashback, the awesome Bike sequence, An incredible scene featuring Red XIII & an incredible opening. I’m loving the gameplay and it’s just a truly amazing game, play it if you haven’t already.
Last Movie Watched – Moana
So I decided to spend some quality time with my mother since she recently got home and so we decided to watch the most recent animated feature from the house that made the mouse. Moana tells the story of a young Polynesian girl called Moana who sets out on a journey across the sea to find the demigod Maui in order to restore the heart of the island goddess Te Fiti. As the two learn to become friends; Moana will discover more about herself and the journey that she is set to take which will shape her future and the future of her people. Moana is a fantastic Disney movie with great songs, stunning animation and a great voice cast. It’s not as good as Zootopia in my opinion but it’s definitely worth checking out.
Last TV Show Watched – Death Note
Much like video games, I’ve been watching a lot of TV this week however the last show I watched was the fantastic anime known as Death Note. Death Note follows law student; Light Yagami who discovers a mystical notebook called the Death Note which gives him the ability to kill anybody who he writes in the notebook as long as he pictures their face as he writes the name. Knowing this, Light decides to become a vigilante (of sorts) killing criminals under the alias of Kira however when an exceptional detective known only as “L” decides to try and catch Kira for the murders he is committing, Light is pushed into the radar of L leaving him to try and figure out how to get rid of the suspicions while also going through with his plan to create a new world. This anime is fantastic and while not my favorite (Sword Art Online gets that honor), Death Note is one which almost every person interested in Anime should check out.
Last YouTube Video Watched – Logan Red Band Trailer
So I’ve been watching a few trailers this week on YouTube but the one I’ve been coming back to a lot lately is the red band trailer for Logan. I’m going to the cinemas on Tuesday to watch the first screening of this and since I’m a big fan of the X-Men movies in general, I have been excited about this movie for months now. I’m hoping it can live up to my expectations given that it is the first Wolverine to be R rated in the states (15 over here in England) and it looks like a more in depth and character focused story in the series. In addition it does also look a little bit like The Last of Us and proves why Hugh Jackman should definitely be a contender to play Joel in a movie adaptation.
Last Piece of Music Listened to – Finale by Madeon
So as per usual I listened to loads of music over the past week however the last piece of music is thanks to my renewed interest in the video game PlayStation All-Stars: Battle Royale. The song Finale by Madeon was used during the opening cinematic for the game and was also heavily used to advertise the PlayStation Vita here in the UK. I love this music and it is incredibly catchy.
and that is my weekend playlist for this week guys. Hope you all enjoyed and be sure to let us know your weekend playlists in the comments section below.
