Crysis 2 (PC DVD)
Crysis 2 (PC DVD)
Offered by games.empire
Price: £6.95

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but repetative game., 23 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Crysis 2 (PC DVD) (Video Game)
I loved most of Crytek games (Far Cry being the best games series out there) but Crysis left me bored at the end of level guardian which take hours to finish off and feels very unrewarding since you will keep seeing the saved checkpoint everytime you catch too many hits. Nice visual effects but too much on screen flashes to give you any chance to see the actual graphics and AI in action.

I suggest FarCry3 instead.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good smart phone, 23 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is a solid phone which I use every day. The problem is (like most other smart phones) the poor battery life which makes you feel rushed when browsing the internet or making phone calls. As long as you charge it every day you shouldn't have any problems. Remember to turn off WIFI and GPS to help lengthen battery life and enable power saving modes. For software upgrades I normally plug it into the USB and enable WIFI to ensure it doesn't die during updates.


JavaScript: The Good Parts
JavaScript: The Good Parts
by Douglas Crockford
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.62

5.0 out of 5 stars Concise book from the JS expert, 23 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Douglas Crockford always manages to present the JavaScript language in an enjoyable, correct and historically relevant manner. The first surprise from the book is how few pages there are but this is a benefit because it reflects the JS language itself, allowing you to write very short functional code which can be built on to produce complex applications. The rail-road diagrams showing the language is a worthwhile addition to the book.

I suggest for real JavaScript beginners that they also check out the online Yahoo videos of Douglas Crockford's talks to help put the book into perspective and help provide greater detail of how JavaScript is different from other programming languages.


High Performance JavaScript (Build Faster Web Application Interfaces)
High Performance JavaScript (Build Faster Web Application Interfaces)
by Nicholas C. Zakas
Edition: Paperback
Price: £17.46

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book from a JavaScript expert., 23 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the rare books which actually has good advice on JavaScript performance and is written in clear, concise language which JavaScript programmers of all abilities can learn from. I was happy to learn techniques that I hadn't considered before.

Some people may argue that none of the methods used in the book are required now because web browser JS engines have increased in speed, but they are wrong. Understanding basic optimisation techniques and DOM bottleneck can help both mobile and desktop JavaScript performance gains.

Highly recommended.


ASP.NET Site Performance Secrets
ASP.NET Site Performance Secrets
by Matt Perdeck
Edition: Paperback
Price: £36.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Good ASP.NET performance book, 23 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this book a while back and still dip into it for reference. Even if the book itself is old it still has plenty of relevant advice and information concerning ASP.NET website performance. From .NET optimization, through SQL schema and query optimization to front-end page load times this book has an impressive amount of information.

Just wish M. Perdeck updated this book using the newer .NET technologies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good ladies' case for S3, 23 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought two of these for my wife and she was very happy with the looking, design and feel of the leather case. Very easy to open and close with a large magnetic catch on the metal flap. Looks like a purse and has a small amount of space inside for notes/credit cards or even sim cards.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very cheap looking coat., 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this online for my wife but when it arrived the coat looked very cheap and something even ASDA might not stock. The strange material used looks like track-suit bottoms (sweat pants to Americans) and I doubt it would even deflect rain let alone be water proof.

One of the dangers about buying online is no being able to touch and see the clothing before you buy.


Professional ASP.NET MVC 3 (Wrox Programmer to Programmer)
Professional ASP.NET MVC 3 (Wrox Programmer to Programmer)
by Jon Galloway
Edition: Paperback
Price: £29.99

4.0 out of 5 stars Great book for MVC3, 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book was written by some of the most knowledgable MVC professionals and there is enough information to keep you coming back to re-read a chapter. However there are a few chapters which feel like padding to the book itself but are still useful such as the NuGet chapter. The explanations are good and the security chapter about XSS etc are very good additionals to the book itself.


Fallout: New Vegas (PC DVD)
Fallout: New Vegas (PC DVD)
Offered by Niceandquick
Price: £4.95

4.0 out of 5 stars Great game but not as amazing as Fallout 3, 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I loved the fallout 3 game. It had amazing landscapes, dialog and interaction. It took a while to get familiar with the freeze-time target system but you can optionally just shoot in real-time. The characters and story lines in the sequel: Fallout New Vegas are just as good but the whole New Vegas map/levels feel like a different game and its more about interaction than survival (like it is in the wasteland itself). I recommend this game and its predecessor (Fallout 3). Be warned you will spend many, many, many hours playing and enjoying both games.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as you think., 29 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this laptop cooler and expected big things from it. It has moveable fans and they are all open on the mesh. Unfortunately the cooling from this its disappointing. The moveable fans are more of a gimmick. I suggest looking at the closed laptop coolers such as the Zalman which are much smaller but direct and deliver far better cooling.
