Fifa 15 Ultimate Team

Anyone else in love with Fifa 15?
Well I definitely got addicted to this game from day 1 and currently have my ultimate team surrounding Liverpool FC and Everton FC as they have some amazing players with great chemistry. I wanted to share with you who I would want in my Barclay's Premier League Ultimate Team if I had enough coins.



Rowley Regis FC

Manager - Brendan Rodgers

Hugo Lloris in goal for me; a shot stopper with great reflexes is always a sure bet to keeping you a clean sheet.

Seamus Coleman at right back; great pace and defending and perfect for overlapping the winger.
Alberto Moreno is my left back for the same reason; very quick for a wing back and great for the counter attack.
Gary Cahill and Vincent Kompany; can't go wrong with the experience and strength of these two centre backs. Quicker than most centre backs also.

Raheem Sterling is a must for all teams with unbelievable pace and skill down the right wing; always beating the full backs.
Eden Hazard on the left wing at a very high rating; pacey, skilful and great finishing for a very well rounded winger.
Jack Wilshere and Yaya Toure in the centre of midfield; Yaya stronger than most to push players off the dribble and with both players having great vision and creativity.

Diego Costa in form striker for Chelsea this season already with an in-form card; amazing strength and finishing for a perfect striker.
Daniel Sturridge is a must have also; lightning quick and great finishing. This guy is a perfect striker for beating the last man.

The above team is using the usual 4 - 4 -2 formation and would cost you plenty of coins.

So what is your Ultimate team? Mine is not to be messed with!

Destiny New DLC

I have now been playing Destiny since the launch of this outstanding series and looking back I have no regrets. This is a fresh new game to come to consoles and you have to try it out (free trial now available). If you had to compare it to anything it would have to be Halo (Xbox exclusive) which was also made by Bungie; it's kind of a mix between the Halo series and Call Of Duty series in the way it plays which adds it up to a must have. A guardian joining the fight to save the last safe city on earth.



Destiny have constantly been adding new content to this game which so far has included the new six player raid "The Vault Of Glass" and all it's new gear and weapons such as Atheon's Epilogue which is an amazing new auto rifle (also has void damage). Destiny also added Halloween features during the holiday season and has also including time events such as the Iron Banner tournament and The Queen's Wrath where new gear became available if you worked hard for it.

So what's next for Destiny?

A new DLC expansion pack is coming out for Destiny on the 9th December 2014 called  "The Dark Below" and can be brought in part of a double expansion pack which will also include another upcoming DLC for 2015. The Dark Below will include some PlayStation exclusive content until Fall 2015. The content involved in the DLC will include gear that can boost your light and character to level 32. Finally we can get past 30!

In this DLC we can expect new story missions, strikes, crucible maps, a sparrow (which you can do tricks on) and what I am most looking forward to is the new raid named Crota's End. All details are yet to be announced I can't wait for all this new DLC to hit the game so we can explore some more. Now is definitely the time to buy the game.

Join the fight now! What part of the new DLC are you looking forward to the most?

Review | L'oreal Men Expert

After going through so many different brands of male beauty/ skin care I have finally found products that are suitable for my skin with amazing results.

I have dry and sensitive skin and have had so many problems over the years trying all sorts of pamper products desperately attempting to look after my skin until I found these products:

L'Oreal Mens Expert



I am still yet to try all of their product's but let's talk about what I have used and let me tell you effective they are.

L'Oreal Men Expert Energizing Shave is perfect for me; I don't grow much facial hair compared to others and results obviously may vary person to person but this is amazing as it's a non foaming gel so rub this on your face and you can still see what your actually shaving and it's energizing on the skin for an effective wake up. Perfect if you want to style your facial hair a certain way. Try an energizing shave.

L'Oreal Mens Expert Hydra Energetic Daily Moisturiser is one of a kind. You never want to leave your skin dry and this wont let you. This will keep your face fresh and give you a bit of a kick. It leaves me with a fresh and energetic ready to take on the day ahead. They do have other moisturisers for sensitive skin but this hydra energetic is the one for me.

L'Oreal Men Expert Hydra Energetic X-Treme Black Charcoal Face Wash & L'Oreal Men Expert Hydra Energetic Wake Up Effect Face Wash are the perfect combination to leave you feeling fresh, clean and clear. The wake up effect is the one I use most as it leaves you feeling so awake and alive. This is honestly the best wash I have tried to date with super results. The charcoal wash is one that definitely leaves you feeling so clean; after using this product your skin has that squeaky clean finish that feels so satisfying. I would recommend switching between the two each day but they are worth a try and you will not be disappointed. 

I am desperate to try more of their products and will post my findings when I do. I highly recommend the above products and they can be found in most beauty stores such as Boots or Superdrug.

Review | Grand Theft Auto 5

So having played Grand Theft Auto 5 on both Xbox 360 and PS3 I wanted to share with you my highlights of the game, why it's been so amazing, discuss any faults and is it worth upgrading to the PS4/ Xbox One version of the title.


My Highlight's so far; how about climbing the highest point in the game and overlook the entire city? It's amazing how great the game can look with so much going on in the world. Nothing in the distance is popping in; it's all there and you can explore all of it. The map is huge and filled with everything you need.
Activities in the game are endless; as well as completing the story and side mission, why not try some of your characters hobbies? go play some tennis, golf, darts and many more.
Customization? The possibilities are endless! From your characters to vehicles; everything is full customizable. Tattoo parlour, barbers, clothes stores, ammunation and the mod shop are just a few places you need to visit to make your game unique.

As for Faults,  there's not too much to complain about; although there is more than enough content and updates released all the tie with add ons to the game, there is always one person complaining about the constant wait for Heists! We have been waiting for this since the launch of GTA Online and it's still yet to make an appearance. Will we see an entrance soon?

I'll be Upgrading my version of the game and be getting the PlayStation 4 title; whether your upgrading from Xbox 360 or PS3 you can upgrade and carry over your character and all it's progress over to whichever next gen platform you decide to get. Not too bad because we don't want to lose all our hard work and time we have put in to the current versions of the game. Unfortunately there is no discount. trading system to exchange your current copy for a new one and you will have to fork out the price for a brand new game but the next gen game looks to be one of the best.
Improved graphic's make this one of the best looking games on the PS4/ Xbox One; facial features in detail, new water effects, less popping and more make this game look so beautiful.
An addition of more wildlife fills the world so keep an eye open. Also a denser traffic and more cars and weapons have been added and expect more updates in the future.
Lastly I'd like to add the all new first person mode; you can play the whole story/ Online again but with a twist; you can now play in first person mode which looks amazing. Nothing is more satisfying than punching and stabbing an enemy in first person and watching the blood fly.

I would have to give this amazing new game a 10/10 and is a must buy!

Why get an Xbox One?

Although I am still yet to own an Xbox One, I can't help but be envious of those who do.



I already own a PlayStation 4 so what draws me to the new Xbox console;
Maybe the Xbox isn't as powerful as the latest addition to the Sony family but there are so many perks to owning the Xbox One (still unsure of where the name came from; Xbox to Xbox 360 to Xbox One?) that makes is so appealing to me.

Firstly the exclusives; same as Sony, Microsoft brings with it's console a host of exclusive games that can only be found of their own products. After owning the Xbox 360 and being such a loyal Microsoft customer for many years I have become very attached to many of their exclusive titles. So which ones? The Gears Of War series is very close to my heart (many of these found on my YouTube Channel) having played this since the beginning; following the Delta squad and trying to help save the human race was like am impossible task. Halo is the other title that pulls me in as the new Halo 5 draws nearer to it's launch. Halo is one that has been around since the start of the Xbox brand and has never failed to impressed. This futuristic shooter is one not to be missed. Other exclusives consist of Dead Rising and more.

So how about Kinect, PS4 also has a camera involved but Kinect is far superior with a new upgraded one brought out with the new Xbox. Of course the Kinect is only worth the money for those gamers who intend to use it (Kinect is not necessary for all games). You can become fully immersed in gaming using the Kinect as you can gesture and talk in your favourite games to help along.

Servers? Touchy subject among all gamers but it seems to be Online gaming always seemed for reliable on Microsoft's consoles; Microsoft's dedicated servers always kept me going whereas on PlayStation I can sometimes have a few problems with Lag/ Connectivity.

Lastly, how about the abilities seamlessly flick between gaming and TV with Instant Switching; it's the all in one console where you can do two things at once. I've always wanted to play Online and watch the football at the same time!

Other features include better matchmaking, advanced reputation system, person dashboard and there's plenty more to come.

who's got one? what's your highlight's been?
Most importantly, should I invest in one?

Happy 1st B'day PS4

One whole year since the arrival of the PlayStation 4;



I travelled to my closest Game Store on the 29th November 2013 for the midnight launch of the PlayStation 4. So many people all in one place waiting with anticipation for the latest console to hit the shelves and the finally we got our hands of the next generation of gaming.
I paid just over £400 for my PlayStation 4 bundle with came with Killzone Shadow Fall and Assassin's Creed Black Flag and I have never looked back at this purchase in regret. Each developer bringing it's games to the new generation and pushing the PS4 to it's limits.

One year later I have added to my PS4 games collection with titles such as The Last Of Us, Call Of Duty, Destiny, AC Unity and many more blockbuster titles as well the free games Sony have given out each month for members signed up to PlayStation Plus. For a small fee you can play online with friends or meet new ones and live your online world. Sony reward us with some fun or scary games such as Outlast (can be found on my YouTube Channel)

If your thinking about getting a new console then look no further than the PS4; there is no better place to be gaming right now.
Amazing peripheral's like the PlayStation camera, docking station's and new headset's have joined the PlayStation family as well as new updates to the console such as shareplay where other players can take over your game without even owning the game!

What's your highlight been so far over the first year?
Greatness Awaits still but here are a few of my achievements:

Destiny - Vault Of Glass
Finally after many attempts I managed to completed with Vault Of Glass raid with my friends.
Not only did we complete it but we finally got the trophy for completing the raid with a full fireteam consisting of only clan members. Game found here

Walking Dead Season 1 - Platinum
Not such a hard trophy to obtain but you get fully immersed in The Walking Dead series and will not want to put down the controller. I completed this and got the Platinum trophy for obtaining all the others trophies in the game. Game found here

Join the party and I'll see you online!

ImmensEtc

Hey Guys,
I decided to do a complete overhaul of my blog; in the coming days you will notice new layout, background, title and most importantly different content in my posts.

I originally started this blog to be completely about my love for gaming; it started with me posting previews, reviews about the latest games and posting updates on the latest gaming news and events.

I have now decided to open up my blog completely so that I now have no restrictions and can write about my life and whatever I want to share with you. So, this blog is having a makeover and will have new daily content about my life, hobbies, activities and everything about me.

Along side this blog I will continue with my YouTube channel and I will still post on this blog about my YouTube video's and playlists and also write about game previews, event's and wishlists.
If you have time then please go take a look at my YouTube channel and if you enjoy then please Subscribe.

So, Welcome to ImmensEtc Blog.


Moving Home

So, Me and my Fiancée have finally moved out and are now living in our home, our perfect home.
We're now ages 23 and 22 and after being together for just over 5 years we have made the jump into living together and it is the best decision we have made;

Our own space, our own home to do what we like when we like.

We have chosen to stay close to our family in the West Midlands area so at least we can visit our families ad they can visit us too! (of course they have been round plenty already to see if we can cope) 
WE ARE MORE THAN CAPABLE! HAHA

When moving home it's a stressful time and with so much to think of such as furniture, transferring all of our belongings to our new home and most annoyingly all the bills.

We are now happily settling in with only a few more things to sort out, mainly our storage; we have so many boxes of random things (leads, electronics, DVD's)

So let's share some photo's of our new home (pinched from my fiancée's blog; link below)









!Home Sweet Home!
