1.0 out of 5 stars The Flappy Birds of the PS3, 18 Mar 2014
This review is from: Demon's Souls (PS3) (Video Game)
Flappy Birds was deliberately bad. Flappy Birds was NOT a difficult game, what made it "difficult" was it's deliberate design flaws. Same with this game. Any game could be made as "difficult" as this by adding deliberate design flaws such as a lack of checkpoints and health.

Anyone who likes this game has been trolled in my opinion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sorry I just don't get it, 13 Mar 2014
This review is from: Far Cry 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
Clearly I am in the minority here, however this game was awful.

1. Poor graphics.
2. There are better open world games
3. There are better FPS games.

For example Skyrim was made before this game, and has better graphics, and is a better open world game. The game is so boring, at one point it has you collecting different coloured plants fffs at this point I deleted it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good game but too easy and too many bugs., 27 Aug 2013
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
Once you hit about level 30 in this game, its a complete breeze. I have the thief's invisibility skill thing so I just go invisible for a couple of seconds during combat, sneak around them, then stab them in the back. It's one hit kill on most enemies.

Also, there are lots of bugs. For example even though I am a leader of the thieves guild, it still says I haven't done this in the objectives screen. Also the game slows down, with slow framerates the more you play the game. It can also freeze completely at times requiring a restart.

Having said the above, playing upto level 30 is a great experience. One of my favourite gaming moments was when I had completed a difficult dungeon, came to the surface and the stunning sunset outside was breathtaking. Sounds sad, but it was really memorable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Flushed with success, 16 Aug 2013
Delivery was prompt. The rim on this model is extremely robust and withstood the mightiest of bottoms on our recent camping trip even after a heavy BBQ and drinking. One camper said heaving his great bulk onto this potty was a breeze. Speaking of breezes, this model has an excellent ventilation system. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Contender for the best online multiplayer game ever created, 12 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: StarHawk (PS3) (Video Game)
I am not exaggerating, this really is an amazing experience. It's a third person shooter, where you can fly mech planes, drive tanks, use mech suits, etc. In this way it is similar to Warhawk. The new addition is "build and battle" where you can create structures (eg that can build vehicles, or ammo dumps etc) on the battlefield. Nothing can beat strategically outmaneuvering the enemy by setting up a spawn point close to enemy territory as a base to launch attacks from.

Sometimes the game can become unbalanced, when one team decides to "base rape" the other by destroying all their structures. This makes it very difficult to recover from and leads to instant spawn killing which sucks. Another downside is the single player is awful and is full of bugs, with the cut scene movies frequently crashing my PS3. Apparently the developer has gone bust so will not be releasing updates to correct this. It doesn't matter though, this game is worth it for the multilayer alone. The multiplayer is so much fun that these downsides do not deserve the removal of a star.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for the middle of the night, 18 May 2013
I do not want to be messing around with a spoon and bottle when I am woken by occasional heartburn in the middle of the night! So these sachets are perfect. I keep them in the bedside drawer and if heartburn wakes me I don't even need to turn the light on. Just tear the top off and you're done, minimal sleep disruption.

3.0 out of 5 stars Common sense info ruined by adverts, 24 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book contains some good common sense information, but it is filled with adverts and plugs for the author's seminars and courses. It is a slim 170 pages long but only about 100 pages contain useful info. There is a 20 page section near the end exclusively devoted to the author's products he is flogging. Obviously he is not as successful in property as he makes out otherwise why bother with the course selling? All of the case studies peppered throughout the book always contain references to how they found XYZ tip, or met XYZ person at one of the author's courses.

Having said this, the book does contain some good common sense information about property investing. This can be summarised as:

1. Buy properties at below market value by looking for distressed sales, repossessions, etc.
2. Wait about a year, and then remortgage at full market value (remortgages are done on a valuation basis not on a price paid basis).
3. Use the resulting cash for a deposit for another property.
4. Repeat.
5. Let out your properties so the tenants are paying the mortgages.

There are no real methods of buying your first property without a deposit in the market today, so I question the subtitle of the book. I was especially sceptical about the chapter on "purchase options" - while they work in theory, I doubt many people have actually used this method in reality to buy a property without a deposit.
