1.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly bad drill, 21 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This drill is shockingly bad. I can't understand how people are giving this positive reviews. I decided to buy this drill to replace my old 15 year old drill thinking it was time for something better.

After charging it for 24 hours it still only lasts approx 2 hours before it dies completely. Compare that to my old cheap drill, which lasts 6 days before it needs charging.

This would only suit the very occasional light DIYer. I can't recommend this to anyone undertaking any DIY projects. It simply is bad.

1.0 out of 5 stars utter rubbish, 15 Sept. 2013
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars 
Resident evil began going down hill with RE4 and now is a pathetic shadow of it's former self. Resident evil 4 introduced the annoying button sequence, where you have to press buttons together quickly to get past certain cut scenes, VERY ANNOYING and takes no skill. I could cope with it in Resident evil 4, because the rest of the game was excellent, but in Resident Evil 6 this is beyond pathetic, annoying, boring and frankly makes you hate the game.

This game is basically just one big cut scene with annoying button combos. They have moved away from great story lines, puzzles, problem solving and classic horror gameplay and instead now we have this crap to replace a once brilliant game series.

Doing a lengthy cut scene and adding button combos DOES NOT MAKE AN INTERESTING GAME. What do you think this is guitar hero?

For the love of God, get back to making decent Resident Evil games, with interesting storyline, problem solving, puzzles, zombies, and HORROR.

overall this game just plain sucks the big stinky one.

All good.

Not much to say, these work well for all garden work. I used them for lifting heavy duty paving up and they held up well.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good for the money but awkward to use, 12 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Great for the price, but be aware that it's a bit awkward to use and care must be taken. When i used it the first time the safety guard around the disc became loose and spun around, this meant that my bare hand was exposed next to the blade and to make matters worse the off button is quite difficult to work, so i couldn't turn it off quickly.

It does the job, just make sure you tighten the safety guard properly before use and wear gloves.

1.0 out of 5 stars didn't work well, 12 May 2013

This fell to bits before i could use it. The letters are single to adhere and so easily break apart when trying to stick them on a surface. Almost impossible to place them accurately as well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ok but not great, 12 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are ok but not all that comfortable for walking and you could probably find something a lot better. I only brought these for work and so they're fine for that purpose, but i wouldn't go hiking in them.


A Love Transcending [Trans* Transgender Transsexual Erotica]

3.0 out of 5 stars Transmen are not lesbians, 17 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Considering the lack of erotic fiction available concerning transmen, i greatly appreciate any author who attempts to write a love story or erotic fiction featuring a transsexual male. However i am somewhat disappointed with this for a couple of reasons.

The character of Diana appears to be a lesbian? As she talks about meeting James at the "queer center" and also talks of her previous ex girlfriends. She does not clarify her sexual orientation or mention any sexual attraction to men and so we are left to assume she is a lesbian. For me this undermines the book, because it strongly suggests that transmen are something other than male and that lesbians find us attractive, which is simply untrue. The vast majority of heterosexual transmen are in relationships with either straight women or bisexual women, or at the very least women who are attracted to men in some form.

Another reason the book falls a bit short is due to the lack of description of James body with regard to his sexual parts. It isn't made clear what kind of genitals James has and we aren't enlightened as to his surgical status in that area. At one point i assumed James had not had lower surgery, then i thought James had had a meta because his penis was described as being "pulled out", then later it appears as though James was able to penetrate Diana? But there is also talk of his "entrance" It isn't really made clear and because of this being an erotic book, it made things difficult to visualize in my head, since i had no idea what kind of parts James had.

Positive points include:

It's easy to read, uses correct pronouns (he/his etc), it's enjoyable and nice to read something uplifting and positive with regard to a transsexual character. It is also handled with sensitivity and wouldn't cause offence to anyone.

I don't want to discourage the author and i hope she writes more stories with transsexual men in. However i believe it should be made very clear that transsexual men are just men, not lesbians and i find it weird that the character of Diana was depicted as lesbian. It would have been far more interesting and representative if she was heterosexual.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not worth it for the high cost, 19 Dec. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Laser Cosmos (Office Product)
I don't know why people rated this product highly. Although it produces a decent laser effect, it's very noisy, which makes it annoying.

Mine ended up breaking after one week having only used it three times.

Even if it hadn't broke, it's not worth the money.


Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (GameCube)
Metal Gear Solid: The Twin Snakes (GameCube)

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant remake of a classic game, 30 Jun. 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I'm such a massive fan of the metal gear solid series and I recently completed the original metal gear solid for playstation 1 again to refresh my memory. I love the shadow moses storyline so with the updated graphics and the ability to use MGS2 moves/actions incorporated into this remake the game truly becomes amazing to play.

The graphics are similar to MGS2 but are lacking a few finishing touches, for example Meryl seems to have been hit with the ugly club a few times but none the less the overall graphics and modifications are an extreme improvement from the original.

The moves and actions are more or less the same as MGS2 as you can use first person shooting, you can hang, and even hold soldiers up to collect dog tags like in MGS2, however since Twin Snakes was only released for Nintendo the Nintendo control pad makes controlling snake a little awkward at times, but does not hinder the majority of game play.

A lot of the original cut scene stories have been changed slightly, which is both a good thing as well as bad. some of them didn't need to have been modified and were great the way they were. If you haven't played the original this won't bother you at all.

Twin Snakes is actually my favourite game of all the metal gear solid series including the newest addition. Just for the simple fact that snake is young, I love all the boss battles and the game play combined with a brilliant storyline makes this my favourite metal gear solid game overall. Don't get me wrong I love the newest metal gear solid as well, but I just don't think the game play is as interesting and the new metal gear solid is a little depressing to play for me personally because solid snake is on his last legs.

In conclusion this game is an excellent remake of a timeless classic and I think it's great fun to play and revisit shadow moses for an improved experience.
