TP-Link TL-WN821N 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter
TP-Link TL-WN821N 300Mbps Wireless N USB Adapter
Price: £9.87

4.0 out of 5 stars TP-Link TL-WN821N Wireless N USB Adapter, 20 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered two of these, Amazon again very fast with their delivery & arrived safe & sound due to their packing as well,

The Adapters are great, especialy for the for the money, so far i have not had any problems with them, i didnt use the Software bundled with the Adapters, i used the latest Driver off the TP-Link Web site, didnt use the Utility either, iam using the Windows configuration as BT's (British Telecom) Routers dont like any other configuration, worth baring in mind if you have these Routers,

Knocked a Star off as these could do with a Stand for better reception, their is a hole at the end of the Adapter, they could of easily included a small piece of plastic to clip into this hole so it could stand upon its end, dont realy know why the hole is their in the first place if not for some sort of Stand, apart from that (me being picky that is lol) these are a great buy :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Deus Ex: Human Revolution - Augmented Edition (PC DVD), 2 Sep 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
First of all i like to thank Amazon for there prompt delivery & price promise, i pre ordered this a while back, it arrived on the 27/8/11 & i saved a further £9 pound plus as well, cheers guys, will be pre ordering again from you

Now for the review, been a big fan of the Deus Ex games so when i heard they would be doing another instalment i thought id keep an eye on it, been following from the early days of development, reading a watching interviews from Art Director Jonathan Jacques-Belletete,(he looks like the main character Adam Jensen by the way, dam cool dude lol) which i realy enjoyed listening to him, he is very passionate about his vision of the game & it shows, its a stunning & very atmospheric game, also quite apt with whats going on with the World today,

The game is set in a near future where corporations have extended their influence past the reach of global governments, the game follows Adam Jensen, the security chief for one of the game's most powerful corporations, Sarif Industries, he his hired after his girlfriend who works for Sarif Industries recommends him for the position, he previously worked as a SWAT Officer but after things went wrong on a case he was dismissed & looking for work, not long after starting his new position there is a devastating attack on Sarif's headquarters, heavly armed & Augmented Mercanaries/Soldiers siege the building, Adam tries to fight them but is overwhelmed, he is left for dead as he sees his girlfiend taken hostage by them, he wakes up six months later after finding out that he had to undergo radical surgeries that fuse his body with mechanical augmentations, he is more machine than man but his heart, soul & mind remain strong & keep him human, he resents being Augmented as it wasnt by choice but realises that he wouldnt be alive without them & learns to live again & is embroiled in a quest to find who is responsible for all this,

iam realy enjoying this game, i havent completed it yet, been playing solid since the 27th lol only taking a break to write this review, its not without its flaws tho, it is a incredible game, with great art style, gamplay, sound & graphics but the facial animation on the characters could of been better, the best so far for getting this rite are the Mass Effect games,(incredible games as well pick them up if you get a chance) i thought they would of gone down that line for a game like this, crowds are often repeated with the same facials as well from city to city, bit lazy from the developers, on the PC it also suffers from occasional stuttering after entering a new level or loaded level, there has been an update which mine has been but yet still suffers from it, those aside i highly recommend this game, dark, moody & fun to play, get it & become more than Human, enjoy :)

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Big fan of the first Assasins Creed, was let down by the second, was weary of Brotherhood but i took a chance & glad i did, if you have never played the Assasins Creed games you might be a bit lost on the back story but it does re cap slightly from were it left off on the sencond game as the first games story doesnt realy come into play as of yet, i hear it does in the fourth game yet to be made, you are character called Desmond Miles (set in our time) hooked up to a type of Virtual Reality machine called the Animus, it can read DNA from people a visualise their past in the form of memories stored deep within their DNA, Desmond was captured by a secret organisation which is hinted at to be descendents of the Templars, they found out that Desmond was from a long bloodline of Assasins, the Templars are looking for a lost artifact with imense power called the Piece of Eden, it was hidden by the Assasins to stop the Templars getting their hands on such power, after many years of searching they have yet to find it, hence Desmond & the Animus machine, they are hoping by probing Desmonds DNA they can find were the Assasins have hidden it, originaly you were re living the memories of a character called Altair & it was set in Jerusalem,(incredible & stunning game, get it if you dont own it already)

You are now re living a character called Ezio Auditore, a young nobleman from 1476 in Florence who you were in the second game as well, a quick re cap on the second game, at this stage you have been freed from the Templars & have been rescued by a small team of Assasins that have managed to remain unditected throughout history like the Templars untill now (our time) they have got themselves a type of Animus machine as they suspect the Templars are close to getting to the Piece of Eden & need to find it before they do, you realy start to feel for Desmond, the guys so messed up with all thats going on lol, he was just minding his own business as a Bar Tender originaly, every time Desmond re lives his familys memories he is starting to find that its changing his own DNA, he is developing skill he never had, its called the bleeding effect from being in the Animus,

Brotherhood is set around the city of Monteriggioni & Rome, a large open world game traveling from place to place & its absolutely stunning, its a third person game that relies on stealth as well as skilled combat, you & your family are trying to re build Rome to its former glory as you fight thru corruption & set things rite again, places & people you meet are historicaly acurate to a degree, time lines are off, a bit of developer artistic license there, lol, the excuse is that the Templars changed dates/times to cover there traces thruout history, lol, the gameplay is incredible, realy draws you in, i was a bit lost after completing it, i was sad that i had to return my mind to the real world, lol, graphics, sound & voice acting are superb as well, get this game, an absolute must
