Geek WeekTuesday, November 19, 2013
This week I am having a major geek out because of several things. These things include Catching Fire being released, the 50th Anniversary Epsiode of Doctor Who(!!) and -not going to lie- the release of the XboxOne!
With Catching Fire being released on Thursday in the UK, I've decided to a bit of last minute catch up reading with it. I have already read the entire Hunger Games series but that was about a month or so before The Hunger Games originally came out last year. Last week I restarted Catching Fire and I've got to admit I'm soo glad I decided to pick it up and reread it! I had forgotten so many details from the book that I know will probably not be included in the film- especially one part to do with an Avox, I literally gasped by horror when I reread this part. I hope I finish the book in time of the 18:20 showing on Thursday night- but I should be fine! I've got about 100-150 pages left to read.
Next up on my week of geekyness is the 50th Anniversary Epsiode of Doctor Who. As some of you may know, I am a major Doctor Who fan. I started watching the programme by watching odd episodes when David Tennant was the Doctor and I've got to admit I fell in love with it. I started rewatching around David Tennants last season which was very upsetting. But I adore Matt Smith so it's all good! Since Matt Smith started Darren and I normally will watch each new episode together- with some exceptions. For the Anniversary Epsiode to have both Tennant and Smith though is amazing! I am such a fan of both of their Doctors and can't wait to see how they will interact together and what the story will hold.
Last up in my week of geek is the Xbox One release. Now, I realise that the Xbox One is actually released before Doctor Who but I won't be playing one till after Doctor Who. Before I started dating Darren 3 and a half years ago (this Saturday), I was never really a gamer. I had a NintendoDS and played the playstation 2 when it first came out. But in that absence of time I wasn't much of a gamer. However, when I met Darren that changed pretty quickly to be honest. The first game I fell in love with on the Xbox was ilomilo- a cute, little puzzle game where you have to get ilo and milo back together. The next obsession was Assassins Creed- one that hasn't gone away but has definitely been put to the side since I wasn't much of a fan of the multiplayer in Assassins Creed 3. So I'm hoping Black Flag will defintely be better and spark my interest in the game again. During my obsession with AC, Darren and I discovered From Dust- a game where you basically act like God. I adored this game and can't wait for a sequel and for more puzzels! However, now on the road to Xbox One I'm more or less completely obsessed with Halo 4 Multiplayer. I initially only played Flood but I have also played the other standard game modes that come along with it.
That's it for my little geeky post for today! I hope you have enjoyed reading it and I haven't caused you to spaz out about the fact that all these things are happening this week!! Let me know below if you're going to be going to see Catching Fire or Doctor Who or if you will be purchasing the Xbox One.
