EMBRACING LOVE 2IN1 GN VOL 01 (A) (C: 1-1-1)
EMBRACING LOVE 2IN1 GN VOL 01 (A) (C: 1-1-1)
by Youka Nitta
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.99

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the wait, 14 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I preordered this November 2012, hoping it would be worth the wait...

To my delight it was. I had forgotten all about ordering the book and when it arrived I suddenly realised it was a double volume edition.

In agreement with one of the .com reviews there are a couple of things missing here and there... but... I find it helps the story run far more fluidly. Part of me does miss the splash pages and free talks here and there but all in all it's a lot smoother.

The translation took me a little by surprise, it's not the same as many of the fantranslations but it makes them feel far more natural. I can't say much else really other than fans of Youka Nitta will be delighted to finally legitimately be able to support the artist and read this the easy way. Sublime have wonderful covers and minimal advertising and I can't be more content with the editions they produce. The paper and printing is of nice quality and the book is a nice flexible size.

It's not a typical fluffy yaoi... it is by far more a Japanese comic about two gay men. Fans of gay comics and boys love should understand what I mean by that, if not maybe some clarification might be in order.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money, 24 May 2012

The following is opinion only!!!!

One not so good movie - Kung Pow, wonderfully crap... something my mother refused to accept was deliberate. Worth watching with friends when in the mood for it!

One average film - Kiss of the Dragon is one of those films you expect to be dubbed or subbed... but is produced in English. Would have more soul if it was a Chinese, Japanese, or Korean film.

One good film- Bulletproof Monk is an easy to overlook film which is actually action packed and often very clever in its own smug little way.

Either way three films for £2 each, some rarer than others depending where you live! (kung pow was hard for me to find at the time and when looking for it this collection showed up I decided to pay a couple of quid more for the two extra films)

4.0 out of 5 stars Says IOMAX but is Bipra, 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Which is more disappointing when the 2.5" case is too big for Bipra's own 2.5" drives. Found I have to put the case in the protective sleeve before putting it in the case to feel the drive is securely packed.

There is space for the cable to be put in the pouch above and it isn't as streamlined or flexible as it could be... but that is a good thing since it's rigid enough to protect what is inside.

Reasonably priced.

3.0 out of 5 stars uhm what did I buy again?, 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Artwork isn't brilliant and is cut and paste sometimes... but I think that is part of its charm... just. Even for a parody it wonders a little off track personally.

Not much else to say about this, I got it cheap and gave it away so it's not a huge loss, nor is it memorable on the strain of pisstakes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pink not red., 24 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The product images must be edited to take the pink sheen off of the device. Part of me does want to return the drive, but it works and there's no sense being petty since there isn't a green option. The cable comes with two USB plugs so there's a little extra leway. Transfer speed is fine and I've only just started to use it so we will have to see how it goes.

Total available capacity is 149GB which is closer to 90% capacity for driver consideration (still a bloody pet peeve of mine, 160GB drives should have 160 available and the rest which is unobtainable should be worked in extra... but I digress)

Nice sleek design (ignoring the colour), but it gets really warm- bordering hot- in a very short amount of time. I would recommend putting a protective sheet (or those silicone things you put on workbenches to protect them from pans) underneath the drive when in use it is something I am going to have to invest in as most surfaces in my home are not heat resistant.

Also the case- which is also Bipra (ignore the IOMAX label) is too big for the drive unless you keep the protective sleeve sometimes supplied for the drive.

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and Sweet, 16 May 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
As a happy owner of all current LEGO ____ games I preordered this one with months to go.
More than happy that it arrived on the day of official release to say the least.

First impressions when I turned it on was that the cutscenes were awfully pixellated. I was using a DSIxl at the time and even when in a smaller DS there's the same problem. - this comes from the game being made for larger platforms and scaling down as a personal thought.
Then when gameplay began the graphics are different from past titles on the DS, this is something that is easy to overcome as the camera follows the player and the levels are huge.

Yes, the levels are large, which makes up *almost* for only four levels per movie. Each level as usual has a story mode and a freeplay mode where players can pick up all the nifty bonuses.

The only thing is with the levels being few there's little point in bothering with most of the bonuses unless you intend for lengthy replays. Which is always a possibility as the game does host the usual LEGO whimsy.

My only complaint is that the duel system gets a little tedious, but this is coming from an older gamer, rather than someone closer to the 7yr old minimum age who would more likely be entertained by the sequences. That said the game doesn't suddenly take on the classic 'nintendo hard' syndrome, which means anyone can play the game with security in knowing that the game gets steadily trickier with knowledge and skills gained on earlier levels.

The whole thing opens up with a tutorial level and there are tips and hints around to remind users of what to press and where (which sometimes gets a little annoying when you know darn well what you are doing).

Overall the game is a good buy, even before you see the last film. In all honesty it helps if you watch the films to know what's going on sometimes, which is why they've probably done it that way. There are spoilers for the last film, but nothing a Pirates fan can't predict and know about from the trailers already.

With 16 levels of Pirates and LEGO humour, many playable characters, and many advantages to replaying the whole thing again this is definitely an addition to any DS game collection.

(i have yet to find the remaining 4 of the advertised 20 - they could mean that with the free play vs the story. But it could be a 100% bonus or something. I will edit when i get there.)

Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the most dynamic, 27 Aug. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Drawing Blood (Paperback)
I already have Lost Souls and was aware this would only be a loose sequel.

But I hadn't expected it to be as less dynamic as it was. I found myself skipping pages at a time almost to get back to the characters.
Credit to Brite for being descriptive about the areas in America, but for UK residents its not all that helpful.

We become reunited with Missing Mile and one or two older characters, and then with a whole new cast thrown in.
To be honest this is an instalment that we could have done without, but I own it merrily enough.
If gore is what you want then Exquisite Corpse is more than enough to fill that urge.

Refer to some of the other reviews when it comes to issues with classic models.

This charger even works with the 5th Generation iPod which in all honesty I wasn't sure if it would xD
I think its safe to say as long as Apple don't change the ports it will work on all Nano models.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent MP3 Player, 29 Sept. 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
1GB MP3 player, red of course
Operates on a drag and drop system for music (i did use Windows Media player, but it will be better to just copy music over) Music plays in the order you put it on the player, and you can put it into folders.
This means you can repeat tracks in a loop or randomise a selection...

Most of the functions are trial and error, which isnt a bad thing as the player is easy to navigate when you get the hang of it and memorise the menu system.
I was dissapointed at first to see the rewind and forward is controlled by a toggle thing, but happy to see you dont need to rely on it too much, like turning the player on and off.

All in all its a decent player for the money you spend on it. And it might be worth using headphones from a previous player or buying some for the ones that come with the player didnt last long, and arent that good really (i have found some cheap ones which are much better)

And as a last resort the player can be used as a flashdrive for those emergencies where you cant find your sticks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different in a good way, 4 Aug. 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Well first off im surprised to see theres a strategy guide ^^ (albeit for the american version of the game... but really i dont think there will be any differences....) Arc the Lad: Twilight of the Spirits Official Strategy Guide

and now onto the review, i have yet to complete the damn game but of course with many RPGs the true potential of the game and the characters isnt revieled till you get creamed by the end boss.

There is a twist to this game as neither side is inherrantly evil.

Humans... using up the energy the planet and beings need, no surprise there. They are in a constant battle with the Deimos.

Deimos... the side evolved from monsters where they think humans need to be erased.

You play as Kharg and Darc, the two pictured characters in the cover [Kharg being the first protagonist and the human is the centrepiece]
There are great twists and ironies within the story and either way you end up liking one side more than the other (which is great cause near the end of the game you can choose ^~)

The gameplay takes some getting used to but in the long run is worth sticking to. It does occasionally get tedious as each move is turn based and more individual than the popular Final Fantasy series. Then again other RPGs often do and when bored it is easy to get back to the story at hand. There isnt much need to spend as much time as possible to level up untill you reach certain points (not specific i know but it means at the beginning dont waste all of your time and patience on getting Lv20 before doing any major story work) and the game has its ways of letting you know when you suck... i mean ... need to train.

Not much else can be said aside from the game being damn addicting, i only stopped playing because i had to give it back to my friend... ive ordered one of amazon and it has arrived.. now i just need the time to play it... really i mean where do the hours go...
