Historic legends given makeover

It is only a few weeks before the launch of new TV program called ‘Secret Lives Of’ when each week they focus on a historic figure and the mystery in their lives. To promote the program, earlier this week photos of historic figures were drawn like they lived in the 21st century. (left)

Lego Marvel Super Heroes
No matter what games console you have, the Lego games are brilliant (even if you own a Wii U). I've played the Indiana Jones and Star Wars Lego games on my original Nintendo Wii and I've played Lego Harry Potter on my iPad (although I wouldn't recommend this as it takes up loads of storage space) and both the experiences were great.
We found out earlier this week they will be releasing a Lego Marvel Super Heroes game for every games console from XBOX 360 to PS Vita.
The new game will feature Spider Man, Captain America, the Incredible Hulk, Thor, Wolverine (from the X men) and Iron Man. The game looks amazing.
There is currently a DC Super Heroes game which features Batman and Superman however the Marvel Super Heroes are a lot better - they've even had their own movie (the Avengers)!

On another note:
Writing this report I've realised how well Lego has done. They've realised over the last few years that people no longer want to play with small plastic blocks if they are over the age of 7 and that is why they have been extremely intelligent and they entered the video gaming industry. It has been a massive success for them as they have made games for Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Star Wars and many more huge titles.

People now trust Google more than they trust religion and smartphones have been proven to be as addictive as Cocaine. What a world we live in.
