Mario Kart 8 (Nintendo Wii U)
Mario Kart 8 (Nintendo Wii U)
Price: £35.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Kart game yet!, 26 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Definitely the kart (racing?) game to beat! Prior to this i had thought Sonic Racing Transformed was as good as it gets but i am glad to say MK8 exceeded my expectations :) that does not take anything away from Sonic Racing, that game is a gem too and by all means you should get it (there is a demo on the eshop for that one if you'd like to try it out first)

Graphics and animation are fantastic, so many small touches that show how much attention was given to making this game!
i did notice some clipping when you have fat characters (i'm looking at you, Wario!) driving the smaller-frame karts, where you see the steering wheel going through their bellies, but that is a glitch i'll gladly accept to get this game as a whole

Audio is great! music and sounds are wonderful and again show the effort that has gone into making MK8. i _do_ wish the game had the ability to load music tracks from USB, driving as Bowser upside down while listening to Led Zepplin would have been a dream, but it does not take anything away from the game :)

Controls are very responsive and the physics are as real as they can be in a game about plumbers and dinosaurs hurling turtle shells at each other while driving on walls.

in short, a must-own for all Wii U owners!
if you do not own Mario Kart 8, what are you waiting for? as soon as you are able go and grab a copy :)

1.0 out of 5 stars counterfeit controller, 1 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have no doubt the original product is of high quality and fun to use, unfortunately the one I got was a fake which refused to sync with my Wii U no matter what I tried.
The fake is almost identical to the original and has the Nintendo logos on both the controller and the packaging.

the easiest ways to tell that it's not original are that:
1. The included USB cable does not have Nintendo branding.
2. The fake has a silver colored screw on the battery cover as opposed to black on the original.
3. Some others have mentioned being able to sync the controllers, but then the analog sticks do not work correctly.
4. the packaging is "glued" together, at least it was in my case, i had to cut it open with scissors, something i have never before experienced with Nintendo peripheral packaging.

if you have any of these symptoms you might have a bootleg controller!

I originally bought it from LgameAcessory here on Amazon, but i have dealt with them many times in the past and thus i believe them when they said it was sold to them as original by their own supplier. in any case, i received a full refund after my complaint to them, which i then used to order a similar one but directly from Amazon.

Avoid resellers offering cheap prices, either pay full price or wait for a sale/price drop.
(as of now it's selling for 33£ which is a good price, i would think.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious!, 26 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Maybe this book is not for everyone, but personally i love it and wish they kept this series!
The book groups together a bunch of B-list Marvel superheros as the titular Nextwave, a superhero team fighting against evil and the very same organization they work(ed) for (H.A.T.E - Highest Anti-Terror Effort, a brilliant pastiche of S.H.I.E.L.D)
the stories are brilliantly absurd, or absurdly brilliant. i still cannot decide!
anyway, this book had me laughing and snorting like a madman in public more than once, and it re-invented/introduced Machine Man for me, i cannot get enough of the rusty bucket of bolts now!
While like i said this might not be to everyone's taste, I would highly recommend it to anyone falling into one of the categories below:

a) Fans (and acolytes) of Warren Ellis
b) comic lovers who are tired of "normal" masked superhero stories
c) people who like absurd humor
d) or people who have the spare cash needed to buy this gem of a book! get it NOW!


Chrono Trigger (Nintendo DS)
Chrono Trigger (Nintendo DS)

Price: £17.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything i hoped for!, 27 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When this game first came out many, many years ago i was misfortunate to miss it as i had a Genesis at the time and we simply could not afford to buy the SNES as well, so there were a lot of gems that i completely skipped over, this included. (along with all the marios, zeldas, and metroids of those years)

when it was reissued on PS1 i also missed it, it simply wasnt available where i was living at the time (Iraq) instead i played Chrono Cross, and kept looking forward to playing the original :)
i managed to play it some time after that via emulator on PC, but somehow its not the same as on a proper console version.

finally, this release has all that i need, the cleaned up graphics of the reissue, along with so many fixes (which i probably will never notice having not played the original through and through!)

Anyway, this game is well worth the money any given day: Playing it on a 3DS, I still find it mesmerizing and enchanting so many years after its original release (18 years now?)

GET IT NOW!

ORB Universal 2-in-1 USB and AC Charger (PlayStation Vita)

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful, cheap, long(er) cable, 20 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is great value for the price, i found it at around half the price of the original Vita charger plus the included cable is somewhat longer than the original Vita cable and can be used for charging as well as data transfer.

the charger itself is sturdy and well-built, and can be used with other devices as well (Android mobe, 3DS, etc)

recommended :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it!, 19 Nov. 2011
Absolutely a landmark game! the collector's edition is magnificient, comes with a poseable PlayArtsKai Adam Jensen figure, which costs around 30-50 euros normally depending on retailer, so this was definitely worth the price of purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good starter kit., 19 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've since gone and bought several colors that are not available in this kit, but this alone should be much more than enough for people just starting their armies. It has all the basic colors needed for colouring Assault on Black Reach (Marines/Orks) for example.

highly recommended for beginners!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome fun!, 19 Nov. 2011
The limited edition is freaking awesome, the t-shirt alone is worth the price of the box! My advice would be to buy two of these, one to wear and one for safekeeping!

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable, and does the job!, 19 Nov. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Very happy with it, keeps me warm during the cold winters in Sweden (and it should also help in dusty weather, although there isn't much chance of that here)
one thing though, the description says Black/Sand, that means Yellow, not Khaki like the picture would suggest. however i was expecting this and ordered this by choice :)

5.0 out of 5 stars An absolute blast!, 6 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Mass Effect 2 (PS3) (Video Game)
A year later, this classic finally comes to PS3, and i might say it was damn worth the wait.
When this was announced I was on the verge of buying an Xbox360 just to play it, and after finally going through it for the first time it's as good as i expected and better!
Do not come in expecting an RPG in the vein of Dragon Age: Origins, this is a 3rd Person shooter with a strong backstory.

Definitely the best game of last year and a dream come true for any fan of Sci-Fi. please do yourself a favor and get it now.
