5.0 out of 5 stars Authentic and gripping, 21 Feb. 2014
I didn't have much expectations when I started watching the film, but two things struck me almost instantly - quality and realism. Everything is solid. Reviews here touch upon that, but it is worth nothing that this is one of those 'based on a true story' movies that actually tell what happened, without adding or subtracting events, at least to a somewhat more than cursory examination.

What the movie then does is tell a story that happened, without blowing things out of proportion, without massive CGI, and still manages to make you lean forward on the edge of your seat. That makes this a very good movie. That it is also relevant is a good bonus. (Or is that the other way around?)

4.0 out of 5 stars Good collection of updated rules, but a little much fluff, 18 Feb. 2011
An unusually cheap DnD supplement, it is in smaller format than the other books, but keeps with 300-ish pages. It has all the basic rules in an easy - to - find format, with several indexes. Updated with all the errata and additions since launch, it is rather useful. Some space is used on fluff that it is unclear why is in the book; information on the planes and such is not rules, it is just background information that may or may not apply to the running campaign. Mostly recommended, I'll be using it a lot in the local campaign.

4.0 out of 5 stars Works well and surprisingly cheap, 29 Oct. 2009
It is an xbox controller for the PC. It is made by microsoft and games with the Games for Windows Live tag is required to be compatible with it, if they can use controllers at all. As such, most games is made for it, so it is much easier to use and configure for the PC than other 3rd party controllers, and it is also surprisingly cheap.

The xbox 360 controller is also known for being a very good controller, so overall, if you plan to do any gamepad gaming on the PC, this would be the best choice.

Personally I got it to replace my Saitek 380, which was a horror to configure and get to work. It works well with a lot of games, in particular:
Battlestations Midway
Trine
Tomb Raider

... for many games, like Fallout 3, I still prefer the old mouse and keyboard, but if the game detects the controller it assumes you will use that - even if you disable it. That is a bit annoying, but it's not that difficult to fix, just yank out the cable.
