3.0 out of 5 stars MGS: HDC - Mediocre Gun Shooter: Historically Difficult Controls, 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I'm new to MGS and really only got this in anticipation for the new MGS for next gen (PS4 and that other heap of dung M$ are set to release), so that I could be brought up to speed in the series. If I'm being completely honest, this port to the Vita has resulted in somewhat clunky controls, more so in one of the games (although I can't remember which). The upgrade to HD is something I can't really comment on, because I have no idea how 'bad' the original looked, but I can compare it to other games I've been playing on this Vita (nowhere near as good graphically as ACIII: Liberation, but probably a good bit better than AC Bloodlines); so you can take it to be at least as graphically capable as most PSP games. As far as taking me into the story goes, I stopped playing one (due to the clunky controls) and haven't got around to completing the other. That's probably more to do with the fact that we're spoilt these days for game quality that even when you do go back to play some games that were awesome in their day, you struggle to find the concentration to keep with them (like Vice City).

Anyway, if you're a long time fan, get these for your collection, you may as well, it's a decent deal (although I wouldn't buy a Vita just for these). If you're looking to get into MGS in time for the new one, maybe just read some plot synopses on Wikipedia lol... or get this, it's up to you. It's alright, I s'pose.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice build, curves and excellent mammaries., 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you've never applied the screen protector bundled with this before then you may waste it and could benefit from another. I trapped a little bit of air under mine which is annoying, but with the Vita screen being so bright and beautiful, you barely notice and would really only feel like getting a new one if you messed it up terribly. The other wee bits included in this are of excellent quality but I still find myself questioning the value. Having said that, I keep reminding myself that if this were a Microsoft Handheld Console then I'd probably be lamenting the loss of something closer to £60-70 for this wee pack, so overall it's worth it. I think it's mainly the fact that you have no use for both the pouch and case at the same time that winds me up, so it feels like you could've got away with one or the other. But, like I say, overall it's still worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Does the job., 13 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't fault the product but to say "I love it" is possibly a little bit excessive. The wee critter's getting fed so it does the job it needs to. Having said that, sometimes my mum just fires in some tinned tuna when we're out of this stuff and Lord Shellington just thrives on it, completely different personality when he eats tuna. It's like crack for turtles.

I also got the Draper 38716 33-Piece Security Bit Set and while there is some overlap between bits, most are unique so it is well worth getting both.

3.0 out of 5 stars Generic. Maybe., 13 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review will attempt to inform you of what you'll receive by ordering this product, and what your alternative options are.

You will receive a little white 'tub' of 10% benzoyl peroxide inside a OXY branded box. The tub is also branded with a sticker but doesn't look just as professional as other OXY products, making me wonder if oxy just stick their brand on fairly generic benzoyl peroxide produced elsewhere, and if so, this product wouldn't have the same OXY touch as their other products. As 10% b. peroxide, it does the job, but 10% BP can be bought elsewhere. One brand that comes to mind is PanOxyl which I not only got for less a while back, but got 10ml extra. PanOxyl comes in a squeezable tube which helps you actually use the entire contents, whereas it can be difficult to get the remainder of this OXY stuff out of the bottom of the tub. If you're in the UK you can get 5% BP with clindamycin (an antibiotic) for free on prescription which tackles acne from two angles. It's also easier on the skin (being only 5% rather than 10%) if you have sensitive skin, but similarly there's nothing really stopping you using both together if the acne is that bit more persistent and if you're skin isn't too sensitive. It will dry you out so you'll probably need to buy a moisturiser.

In summary this just doesn't live up to OXY's usual standards and seems to be fairly generic benzoyl peroxide. You should certainly try this once and compare with another benzoyl peroxide solution to see if it's worth your while paying the little bit extra associated with the OXY brand. N.B. Check out OXY's other products as there are a few great ones and most are fairly unique to OXY unlike this.

Can't fault the seller. Item as desribed. Arrived quickly etc.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bawlz bawlz bawlz!!, 23 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Aramith 2in white cue ball (Misc.)
Cue ball was correct colour and mostly spherical. Appears to roll in a fairly regular way. Pattern of miniscule flecks throughout the ball could have been more eye pleasing, but this did not interfere with the ball's functionality. Over all I was very satisfied, even bringing it to parties to show it off. Would most certainly buy cue balls from this seller again.

Book is informative, and contains great quality images for learning from. I think the included CD of images is both unnecessary and not very helpful.
