Top 5 Xbox 360 Games

So far in the top 5 series we have had PS1 games, PS2 games, YouTubers, PS3 games and finally Wii games so today we are on to my Xbox 360 games. I was actually really late to the Xbox party and didn't actually play on the Xbox until I was kindly given Liam's brothers old one about a year or 2 into our relationship with seems like forever ago now. I had always been more of a PlayStation girl but was really surprised with what the 360 had to offer. I managed to pick up a fairly decent sized collection of 360 games and actually still get them to this day as there are so many I have missed, but here are the top 5 Xbox 360 games I have played...

Back when Liam suggested for me to get Minecraft I just laughed and said I had better things to do with my time, but now I have it for every console possible and always end up going back to it. This was one of the first 360 games I picked up and I am so glad I did. I got hours out of this game whether it was just doing random builds in creative or actually playing in survival mode. I even used to take this around to Liam's so I could play on that whilst he was on WOW. It is a game I will always head back to and one that pleasantly surprised me. 

If I remember correctly this is one of the rare times my parents actually bought me a game as a gift and I am so glad they did. I absolutely love fighting games and superheroes so this ticked all the boxes. It was actually one of the first games in ages that I put hours into and actually completed the story. It provided hours of fun and I now really need to pick up Injustice 2 when the backlog has been reduced. My favourite to play as throughout the game was the Joker.

GTAV is actually the first ever GTA game I played, in fact Liam was a bit influence in me getting this game as he was so excited about it and recommended it to me. I am so glad he did as I spent hours on this however, I never actually completed it as I would always get distracted and end up doing something completely opposite to what I needed to do. Regardless of that it was a game I really enjoyed and one I will be trying to complete in the future.

Now this is a game that really surprised. I didn't expect much from this game and in fact I was so unsure I waited quite a while to actually pick this up. But when I did get it I am so glad I did I loved playing through the different worlds, in fact I need to go back and finish a few off. I ended up enjoying this so much I also picked up 2.0 for my PS4. The replay value for this game is brilliant and I am hoping I can get the nephew to enjoy this and play along with me when he is old enough.

Call of Duty Ghosts was in fact one of the first games in the series I owned. I had never really been bothered by the series until Liam actually had me playing it at his and I thought it was a great game just for a time filler. This game is one of the first games I ever played online too as I had never been interested on that side but I used to love just jumping online and playing a few games of team death match. Since then I have gone on to pick up different games from the series and Ghosts is one I will be heading back to in the future to try tackle the campaign.

So there you have it those are my Top 5 Xbox 360 games, what Top 5 do you want to see next?

See you soon,

Last Week #18

Wow it feels like ages ago that I last posted on here, the main reason for that... I just haven't been gaming. Between rubbish internet & consoles needing updates it feels like I have a long wait to play anything that is when I get fed up and do something different. I have also spent a lot more time trying to work on my weight loss and fitness which seems to be going well. However, I do want to get gaming again and get back on track here. So here is what I had...

Been Watching: Football seems to be taking over at the moment and I have watched a lot of it. I have been watching a lot of YouTube too, as well as trying to finish The People vs OJ Simpson.

Been reading : I finally finished my Carli Lloyd book the other week but now I need to get started on my Hope Solo one.

Been Playing: Absolutely nothing, but that is changing this week as I hope to have plenty of time. 

Been listening to : I am absolutely obsessed with Arian Grande's new album it is all I am listening to.

Bought : I got a new football shirt and some trainers for training, but my favourite purchase is the Star Wars candles we picked up.

Plans for this week : I want to get plenty of house work done along with getting in the gym. But I also want to make sure I have plenty of time to get some games played.

Last weeks posts : Unfortunately there were none sorry guys.

So there you have it that was my week. What have you guys been up to?

See you soon,

Games I Still Need To Pick Up

2018 was a pretty good year in terms of games but unfortunately because I was moving and didn't have much money spare I didn't actually pick up many of the new releases that I really wanted. I suppose this benefited me a bit as I didn't need to add to the already huge backlog but I do feel like I need to get caught up.  Now I am doing my backlog challenge I am hoping to get plenty of games completed and I think when I get to 5 done, I will treat myself to one of these games on the list. Or in the case of the Switch it will be once one game is complete I will pick up a new one so that I aren't creating a backlog for this console too. So here are those games I still want to pick up.

Red Dead Redemption is a game Liam had me pick up for the 360, I started it and enjoyed what little I played but then I got my PS4 and stopped playing the 360 so it is one I want to complete in the backlog. I have seen really good things about Red Dead Redemption 2 so fingers crossed once some games are completed I can get this ad enjoy it.  

Spider-man is the main game on this list I want to get in fact it will be the first I buy when those 5 games are completed. I loved the Spider-man game on the PS2 and after seeing friends playing this I have just wanted it more and more. There has been too many times where I have almost bought this but I need to stick to my new rule before I do. Spider-man is actually one of my favourite superheroes so it was really a no brainer that I was going to end up picking this up. 

Kingdom Hearts is another game where the series is currently sitting in my backlog, I need to go back through and complete these games before Picking up 3. I haven't played much of the first one but what I have I am enjoying I think one of my favourite parts is the fact the game incorporates Disney and I absolutely love anything Disney. I can't see this being an immediate pick up but it will definitely be one picked up this year I need that Disney fix.

I don't remember the last time I actually got a Mario game that I just sat and played through. However, now I have the Switch I actually want to get back into playing Mario games and give them a real chance for a change. I need to start taking the Switch to work with me for lunch times and I can see this been a fun game just to sit and play for the 45 minutes, I am sure it will keep me entertained. I just need to finish Pokémon Let's go Pikachu first. 

This is one I think I will be picking up even before Pokémon is completed as this is a game me and Liam can play together. It is pretty rare we will actually sit and game together so this would be a nice addition, plus I love the Smash games. I just know I am going to lose a lot.

So there you have it those are the games I still need to pick up, fingers crossed I can stick to my new rule and power through games to play the new ones I want.

See you soon,

Films I Want To See In 2019

In 2018 I think I went to the cinema and grand total of twice, I ended up missing out on so many new releases and I am still currently waiting to watch most of these. So I wanted to make sure 2019 was the year I actually went to the cinema whether that is with Liam or another family member, because 2019 looks like a very good year for new releases. Here are some of the ones I am really hoping to see in the cinema...

I only originally watched the first Lego Movie because Tegan and Sara sung on everything is awesome, but in the end I really enjoyed the finally and have probably watched it far more than I should have done. So I am actually really looking forward to seeing how The Second Part lives up to it.

Aladdin is one of those films I could watch over and over again and at first I was a little sceptical of how they would live up to it with the live action version. So the main reason I want to go see this is so if it does live up or not. All I know is there is no genie better than Robin Williams, but I am hoping Will Smith can get somewhere close.

I love wrestling and especially the WWE. One of my favourite females is Paige and I was genuinely devastated when she had to retire early. Then I saw Fighting with my family advertised and I knew straight away that I would be dragging Liam along to this with me (he loves Paige too). It will be great to see how she came through the ranks and made a name for herself, and her families response.

I made Liam laugh when I mentioned going to see this and in fact he told me to take our nephew, who will only be 9 months at the time it is released, so no chance there. Frozen was one of those films I got on DVD straight away and admittedly I got far too into it and watched it far too many times. The film had far too many catchy songs so I hope 2 lives up to this and I am looking forward to seeing how the story goes.

Something quite a bit different to Frozen 2 is John Wick 3, Liam actually got me watching the 1st and I was a little on the fence, but then 2 came out and I loved it, especially with Ruby Rose in it. Keanu Reeves isn't too bad either so I am on countdown to the 3rd to see how the storyline progresses.

I have always been a huge Pokémon fan with my favourite character always being Pikachu. I remember whilst growing up having a Pikachu dressing up outfit that I would always wear then growing up and progressing onto a Pikachu skateboard. So as soon as I found out about this film it was put straight onto the list. I am interested to see how this film plays out plus Pikachu looks really cute.

The Lion King is another film that will never get old and one that I will watch forever, so I was really interested when I saw there was going to be a live action version of this too. Disney really are bringing classic films to life and this one is going to be interesting. I think a lot of my family will end up heading to see this and I know for sure that I won't be missing out on it. 

Toy Story 3 had me in tears so I am dreading number 4, this is another film I was always obsessed with growing up, I just absolutely loved Buzz and Woody, I even loved Rex. I loved it so much I am even tempted to get a Toy Story tattoo in the future. When they announced 4 I was a bit curious of where they would take the story line and how they would progress, so roll on this being released, I will be straight to the cinema. I just hope they haven't taken it too far. 

So there you go that is what I am hoping to go see throughout the year and I am sure there may be a few more getting added to the list as the year progresses. Lets hope I can drag Liam along to all these with me.

See you soon,
