What have you been up to?
I have been ridiculously busy with gaming. I have only recently just got back into Batman: Arkham Asylum as my old data currupted. I am 52% in on hard and stuck but I shall complete it and start working on a review of Arkham City. I have also been watching a lot of TV and yes I do watch Gossip Girl… It’s a show that I like to look and think… If I had all that money… Would I look that good and be that popular? Probaby not. I would probably spend all the money on a super computer or lots of chicken. I have also started PC gaming again so playing Minecraft, Team Fortress 2, Counterstrike Source, Football Manager 12 and more.

Favourite game/film beginning with the letter A –
My favourite game with the letter A? Hmmm this is a tough one. I am a huge fan of Assassins Creed 2 but also Abes Oddesy… I can’t decide so both of them. And my favourite film begging with A would be… American Psycho!

What have you been up to?

My games are stacking up and I am in serious need to play them so I have been playing a bunch of randoms that I had forgotten about and also since I recently bought another 12 month Xbox live gold membership I have been playing alot of online on various games such as ACB, Crysis 2 and Dead Island etc. I haven’t really watched alot in the past month but I have been keeping up to date with the various popular animes. Season 2 of Bakuman has just begun which is awesome, and if you didn’t know, Bakuman is about two high schoolers who work to become manga artists… it’s great!

Favourite game/film beginning with the letter A
My favourite game starting with A would have to be Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood. My favourite film would be Afro Samurai

Best Pickup of the month

Green Day Rock Band!!!! Finally completing my complete collection of Rock Band/Guitar Hero Titles

What have you been up to?
After putting around 40 hours into Forza 2, I finally put a sticker on it and placed it back on the shelf. Those endurance races would have been a nightmare if not for the ability to hire a driver. Enjoyed Manhunt, though a few difficulty spikes in some places (The Subway). Film watching was all over the place from the documentary ‘The King Of Kong’ about the high score for Donkey Kong, to ‘The Fall’ and ‘Twelve Monkeys’ which were both very unique in their own ways. Started a number of new TV series including ‘Supernatural’, ‘Oz’ and ‘Over There’, all of which were great. Also played through Kameo and watched Apollo 13, though I’m sure I’ve done them before!

Favourite game/film beginning with the letter A
I’m going to have to say Assassin’s Creed as well, though Alan Wake is a close second. In terms of games…I do enjoy Anchorman!
