5.0 out of 5 stars It works, 13 Jun 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Having spent a lot of time deliberating which Kinect TV mount to purchase I'm happy to give this one the thumbs up.

With my LG 42 in LED TV it fits perfectly - once I'd worked out that the bottom of my Kinect popped off to allow it to be attached properly (honestly can't remember if this was from my previous stand or it's just on the kinect anyway!).

It actually all slides into place nicely with very little effort apart from the clip section which you want to be stiff to keep it's position. For such a lower price than the official product you can't go too wrong!

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly an insight, 23 Aug 2011
Bruce Robinson - the mastermind behind Withnail & I - provides an uncompromising and insightful look into the world of a proffesional writer. Relating tales from his experience of work being passed around by producers from writer to writer, the trouble he had convincing anyone that Withnail would work, his dissatisfaction with the "way things are" and some anecdotes too.

Alister Owen presents the work as an almost interview - not interjecting too much but posing the right questions at the right time.

Highly recommended for writers aiming to "make it" in the biz, a good way for preparing yourself for the realities of the world of film.

The most important thing when buying MS points is the price as ultimately they can be spent on whatever your heart desires. Amazon has now reclaimed the title of cheapest MS points online and therefore are the best to buy from. You can't find them cheaper than this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Immersive gaming - highly addictive, 12 Oct 2010
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
OK so I've just finished my first play through of ME2 and am compelled to write this! I have enjoyed quite a few games but none have involved me quite so much in their plot and characters.

The new combat systems may feel a little bit unfamiliar at first for those who played the first Mass Effect - everything's there but just slightly tweaked - but once you overcome this you are reminded of all the good things about the ME series. For new comers to the game franchise worry not - if you have never met these characters before you'll soon find yourself falling in step with the plot with plenty of catch up sessions with old characters and new.

This really felt more like an interactive 50 odd hour movie rather than a game (which just happens to be exactly what I want from a game). There's plenty of action for those into shooters, skills development for RPG fans and quite a bit of emotional involvement for those who like a bit of that. Your decisions and how much you commit to the game really do have an outcome and for achievement hunters it will really pay to get involved with the whole plot-line, follow up all those conversations and see those gamer points roll in when all your hard work pays off in the final scenes. Oh and sci-fi fans will also love the detailed Universe with all it's informative stories and tit-bits.

The DLC that's available can only help add to the experience (not got Shadow Broker yet but really thinking I might as I want to play this game more).

Yes there are still some elevators to go through but these are dealt with in cutaways more than standing around waiting which does help ease the boredom and frankly this aspect has improved since ME1 immensely.

A truly worthwhile investment for gamers of almost any particular taste (except perhaps family gamers - there's a lot of adult stuff in here) which I would highly recommend.

Roll on ME3!
