Video Game Love
Even though the highly anticipated #Injustice2 won’t hit shelves until May, it seems like every week there’s a new announcement about characters that could join the #action. Which, isn’t a bad thing, we just want to play the #game already! Until the full roster is revealed all we can do is speculate. And, what better way to do that than with a list of characters that we hope could make their way into this game? New Creator Stephen Spencer was nice enough to share his wishlist of characters and honestly, I’m all for it.
Last November fans were given the gift of #Dishonored2, the sequel to the popular #RPG game that’s quickly developed a cult following. Sadly, the games release was met with criticism from the gaming community as it had several bugs that were, well, annoying. If you can look past some of these minor performance issues though, you’ll see that #Dishonored two is a worthy sequel to its predecessor and is full of things to love.
Whatever your interests are, you most likely want to pass them onto your kids. After all, why wouldn’t you?

Advice We Can All Benefit From
Remember when you parents and teachers told you that reading good was for you. Well, I'm here to confirm that for you.

From helping you concentrate to reducing stress levels; #books are nothing short of wonderful!

What do you love most about your best #friends? Is it the fact that they're supportive no matter what, or that they've always got your back?

Yes to girl power, in every aspect of life. We live in a world where, luckily, the success of a woman is no longer dependent of her #career. Women raise their voices for what they believe in, seek independence and strive to be kind, loving individuals. Those aspects are as important as how successful they are at their job. #Cleopatra, Marie Curie, Emmeline Pankhurst - do those names ring a bell? Here's how you can become a strong, free thinking #woman, just like them.
Cinematic & TV Reflections
Video killed the radio star, but is #Netflix now responsible for killing classic film and TV demand? Erin Crisp takes a look at the vast amount of content the platform offers, as well as why big name actors are turning towards the streaming service to showcase their acting chops. Netflix continues to kill the game, especially when it comes to providing us with fresh, unique new shows and #movies. What do you think? Is our love for the service killing the demand for cable #TV?
When you think about the bigger names in animation, the two that most likely come to mind are #Disney and #Pixar - and for good reason! Both companies have earned their success and deserve to be household names in the entertainment industry. However, there’s another player in the game who’s consistently been putting out great feature films, turning huge profits and making audiences of all ages wet their pants with laughter. That company is Illumination, and if that name doesn’t ring a bell then this article is a great introduction to one of the most exciting up and coming entertainment powerhouses.
If you are not familiar with the 'Wholock' fandom then be prepared to have your mind blown.

All-Consuming Fire, a novel written by Andy Lane, was released in 1994 and it includes a Doc/Sherlock team up that will please any Wholock fan. According to Max, it'd make for a fantastic television spectacle, and here's why.
One of the more exciting pieces of news to surface the internet over the past week was the announcement of a #Nightwing standalone film. This is something fans have been petitioning for quite some time, and it seems like their voices have finally been heard! As with any big superhero film announcement speculation is bound to follow. Naturally, the biggest question fans have is “who the hell is going to put on the mask and play the role of #Batman’s most beloved sidekick in blue!?” For any casting directors out there reading this post, please take these suggestions into consideration.
