War of the Ring 2nd Edition Board Game

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep, engaging, worthy of the title., 4 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
One of the most engaging and thematic games I have ever played, with deep strategies and tactics, that only improve the more you play this.

5.0 out of 5 stars So simple, so effective, 11 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have just got Sky broadband wireless but it plugs in downstairs, and the signal to my PC upstairs is rubbish, especially for gaming or downloading large files.

I bought this TP Link to try and get a decent wired network again, and boy did it work, and so simple!

I plugged one of them in downstairs next to the router, and plugged the included cable into the socket on the router connecting to the TP Link and pressed the button under it for 4 seconds. Then I went upstairs, plugged in the other box there and connected that to my PC, pressed the button under it for 4 seconds - and I was fully connected to the internet.

Brilliant!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Upgrade, 1 Feb. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I recently purchased this card as an upgrade for my old 9800GT. Although I was told that my power unit and CPU (and motherboard) might all let me down and stop this card from working, instead it performs excellently! I am now playing Skyrim on almost maximum, and its smooth as anything. SWTOR is running like a dream (although I still struggle with shadows on max) and Battlefield 3 looks A-Mah-Zing!

This is an awesome card, was easy to install, easy to update, and performs fantastic. I would recommend highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome movie!, 24 Jan. 2012
This review is from: Red State [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I loved this movie! Its a horror comedy, in the style of the Cohen brothers, if they had written a movie with Tarrantino. I wont give away any of the plot, but if you like Cohen brothers movies, Tarrantino movies, or Eli Roth movies, then I'd recommend you check this out. And the main guy (Micheal Parks) is ah-maze-ing! Scary yet totally captivating. 5 Stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars They dont have a clue, 24 Jan. 2012
The makers of this program have either completely missed the point of the science they refer to, or are willingly conning people. The "evidence" in this only "points to the existance of god" with a whole lot of human tweaking and twisting to fit their own made up beliefs.

1.0 out of 5 stars This is not science, 23 Jan. 2012
This is a largly made up fictional story, using some science facts as a starting post. In much the same way that Star Trek takes some science principles and creates an interesting fictional story around it, so this book does the same thing.

If your looking for a serious science book, please look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars Adorable, 15 Dec. 2011
I simply adore this movie, and everything about it, and rushed out to buy the Bluray on release day. It did not disappoint. Great picture and sound quality as you would expect.

Ignore those who give it low stars, they clearly didnt get it at all.

Forget about this being a "family sci-fi movie" and think of it more as a love story between two familes who have been torn apart by mutal grief. Their growing relationship is both beautiful and moving, and then to see their wonder and excitment as unusual things happen around them is a joy.

Worth the price many times over, and my recommendation for movie of the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blasting Good Fun, 22 Nov. 2011
This is a great, fun game, that works well in short frantic plays. Its good for getting tension out after work! It's also very true to the Games Workshop story and art work. Looking forward to their MMO next!

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull hack and slash on rails, 8 April 2011
This review is from: Dragon Age 2 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Is this supposed to be an RPG? I didn't play the first, but I have played others, and heard the first was very good. However - this is not a role playing game - you have to move down one path, with no exploring, double clicking on anything that moves.

Removes all thought or skill.

Maybe this is what kids these days want? More mature players certainly don't. Pass on this if you like to use even a smidgen of brain power! Turned it off, uninstalled it, and now selling it.

2.0 out of 5 stars We have a Crysis here..., 25 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Crysis 2 (PC DVD) (Video Game)
If you play this on a console, it is amazing.

If you play this on the PC, and have played Crysis 1 and Far Cry.. prepare to be very disappointed.

This is a console port, no mistake. All the PC graphic options are gone, the PC saving is gone, the sandbox open play is gone, the massive multiplayer is gone.

In comes guided console rail gameplay, three graphic options, save points, 6v6 multiplayer maps.

The first warning to the PC user is on the first screen you see after installing, where you are presented with a picture of a soldier, dark grey on black, and slider. Underneath the words "Use the slider until the soldier is almost black ON YOUR TELEVISION". They couldnt even be bothered to change the wording on the PC version.

Where Crysis 1 was 2 steps forward for PC gaming - this is 5 steps backwards. It looks dated, with no DX11 support at all, it plays badly, and its just a huge let down.

The PC forums on MyCrysis is awash with highly disappointed people. A really big shame.
