Throwback | Assassin's Creed 2007




Seeing as the new Assassin's Creed Origins is soon to be realised, James suggested I do a Throwback Thursday on the first Assassin's Creed, so I thought why the hell not? Except this won't be posted on a Thursday I'm posting it early as I want to get it up before I stay at my parents for a few days to cat sit. I might not have been the biggest fan of the first game it but it's still a really good game, The first Assassins Creed was released 10 years ago now, how fast have those years gone by? Within that time we have seen a lot of AC game releases which I will be talking about at the end of this post, for now, let's talk about the first AC, So what's it all about? AC is a franchise (a very big one at that) action adventure game from the developers at Ubisoft, the game took inspiration from the novel Alamut as well as Prince of Persia, when I first played AC I noticed how similar it actually was to Prince of Persia: The Sands of time, which is a golden oldie and a must play. I later found out that AC was actually meant to be a spin-off to the Prince of Persia game which was a big surprise to me even though I knew how similar they were. It was originally just a concept called Prince of Persia; Assassins, they decided to scrap it in the end and focus on Assassin's Creed as a whole new game, you can see the concept here:


Movie Review | The Last Airbender


The other week I sat down to watch some TV and was going through the TV guide only to see the most dreaded movie title ever "The Last Airbender" (it came out around 7 years ago now) a lot of you won't know this but I love the TV show I spent many days with a friend watching them and that was the start of my love for Aang and his journey to learn all 4 elements of air bending. The show alone is brilliant and the characters had so much life about them, they made the show what it was with the humour and how they progressed within the story. I know a lot of the time adaptions don't always live up to the expectations of the TV show or book and in this case that is what happened, the fact that they tried to fit 3 seasons of the TV show into one movie was a push to say the least, I was under the impression that it would have been made into maybe three movies but that wasn't the case. they squashed all 61 episodes into one movie which made it feel rushed and boring. They had the chance to make this movie into something great and it had all the right elements for that thanks to the TV show and it's great story lines. 

Review | Power Rangers 2017 |


WARNING SPOILERS!

I finally got round to seeing the new power rangers movie, I had pretty high hopes for this film I partly blaming on me feeding into the hype and how good the trailer looked. I feel like I've been living my childhood lately, with the release of crash and power rangers I felt so nostalgic which I'm not complaining about, being a kid in the 90s was fucking awesome! My sister's and I would watch a variety of tv shows from My Little Pony to Batman, I was the Tele addict out of my sister's so I would happily sit and watch tv for hours if I could. Like many children my sister's and I would pretend we were the Power Rangers, my sister Stefi would be the pink power ranger, much to my dismay! I would have to be the yellow rangers but I was younger and use to think the pink ranger was the strongest when they're all as strong as one another. The fact that a new Power Rangers movie would be released took me back to them days, they were some of the best days I had as a child.

My First Thoughts | Destiny 2 Beta


Tuesday morning I was eagerly waiting for 6pm to roll around, the destiny 2 beta servers would open at that time and I could get my game on. I was both excited and nervous as the first Destiny beta was a bit of a disaster, the servers just couldn't handle a number of players trying to play and I would either get kicked or I couldn't connect, it was so frustrating and left me in two minds about getting a PS4 (I played the beta on someone else's PS4 at the time). Then came September 2014, I couldn't help but buy into the hype so I went out and my ps4 bundle which included Destiny, it was one of the best choices I had ever made because it helped me find a lot of new people some of which are still in my life.
