3.0 out of 5 stars ok, but not overly good, 10 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i hada pair of eagle boots before, and got these when the others wore out. The sole is very thick and nearly does not flex, the seems start to loose there grip on the leather after a short while and makes gaps that accelerate the wear on the boots. its an ok boot for outdoors use.water does not get in. but the sole material is of very poor quality. also the is a small incline in the boot where the heel goes, its likely so its easier to put on but for me it gives me blisters...i should say I'm use to this kind of boot but this model is giving me more and larger blisters on my heels than ever before. but for the price you cant get every thing it was worth the money but im gonna be looking for another boot next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars good sound, 10 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
good sound even in highs. and good volume. Battery goes flat when turned off pretty fast though. i wonder how many charge cycles it can go through before its useless. but it was shipped fast, the price was good the build is good, so i really cant do anything but give it 5 stars. if it was more expensive i would give it less, but for the price it really is a good pick.

1.0 out of 5 stars if you folow this guide you will lose out heavily! in the game, 11 Feb. 2010
-Romance plots are not covered aside from a 2 line note.
-There is no warning in the guide that perusing a romance in ME2 could aversely effect the events in ME3, should you have imported a character from ME1 that already had a romance going.
-if you imported an me1 save, you will meet lots of people from the earlier game, depending on your actions in me1 there reactions will be quite different. Very! Few of these are covered in the guide.
- no features, no concept art, no behind the scenes or story out look.

:::Spoiler warning:::
.
.
.
.
-The sequence of the missions you undertake will have a huge effect on the end game, the sequence in the guide will get people killed in game, that could otherwise remerge in ME3. if you chose to go exploring after you have the iff, people from your crew will die in the meantime. You can do one or 2 quests, but when joker and EDI tell you the iff is ready, you should go through the omega4 relay ASAP!
-There are actual mistakes in the guide that make it seem like the author has just assumed things are a certain way (which they are not)
Conversations that will net you renegade or paragon points are not covered, and you will have to load save games several times if you want a good result.
-If you chose to select your endgame squad according to the guide, they might very well die, despite the guides insistence that they will not. The Salarian should not be chosen to infiltrate the vents in the collector base.

This guide feels like a n00b has written it. Someone who did a quick play through of ME1 did an import and and a bad job of covering the choices of ME2, this is an RPG and the coises is an integrated part of it, and they are largely ignored. The guide is treated more like a guide for a shooter, "cover here, cause there is an enemy with a rocket launcher here, see map" sort of thing. It feel like the author didn't play it more then once and never realized there were different endings and consequences to choices made. Like the loading screen says what you do in ME2 can have dire consequences in ME3. in other words stay clear of this guide.

The Red Book: Liber Novus (Philemon)
The Red Book: Liber Novus (Philemon)
by CG Jung
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £136.00

5.0 out of 5 stars deeply fascinating and inspiring, 10 Nov. 2009
How can i possibly review this book, was my first thought, and it still is. I decided to do so anyway, because i think it might bring something to the table.
The book is huge, the imagery alone would take a tremendous amount of time to study. These things contribute to a certain "wow" effect that needs to settle before one begins reading the actual text, or, well at least in my case, even think of doing a review of the book.

So here we are: The book itself. The first's part of the book contains a preface by Ulrich Hoerni Followed by Jung's artwork and calligraphy presented as an original re production of Liber Novus. At the back of the book is the translation, which I think is very well done, I should say I do read German, but I'm in no way a professional translator. The book is devided into liber primus and liber secundus and scrutines which contain an entry of black book 5 (bare with me but I'm gonna quote Sonu Shamdasani from a Harpers magazine article instead of explaining the black books myself:
"To begin with, one must clearly differentiate Jung's Black Books, in which he initially wrote his fantasies together with reflections on his mental states, from Liber Novus. The former were records of a self-experiment, while the latter drew in part on these materials to compose a literary and pictorial work."

So is there a "before and after the red book" which has been state before. I cant say, I don't think anyone can for sure. After reading the book I had a lot of AHA! moments contributing to a better understanding of some of Jung's other works. The book has given me a much much clearer image of Jung as a person, but that image is inheritably flawed, simply because I did not know Jung. So weather or not the book, takes away from Jung's image, or adds to it, is in the end, not really that interesting.
The book is more straightforward in its text then many of Jung's academic works and as such is easier to read. The concept though, is far from straightforward and might take a lot longer to absorb then the usual academic material from Jung.

5.0 out of 5 stars fundamental, 30 Oct. 2009
The fundamental work of Archetypes and collective unconscious, by Jung, is on of the corner stones of western psychology. Whether you are interested in psychology a student of the same, or simply questioning why you do what you do, this book holds quite a few revelations. There is no point in adding a further break down of the core contend, it has been done over and over on this site and many others. Suffice it to say; if you are interested in Jung, this is one of the core texts, and an absolute "must read" for anyone interested in psychology.

5.0 out of 5 stars Underscoring the concept of the collective unconscious, 30 Oct. 2009
If you are interested in psychology, but have not read too many of Jung's books, the title alone "Alchemy" might conjure up images of mystics and newage mumbo-jumbo. In truth though, this book deals with the imagery produced by the subconscious or more to the point the collective unconscious. As usual Jung was not deterred by dogma and he has no problem analysing controversial subjects (Aion, the I-ching etc.) This is no exception. Jung analyses the imagery of Alchemy in dreams and draws conclusions concerning spirituality. However Everything is presented with good arguments and with rational thinking.

Rhodan: Myth Of the Illochim (PC DVD)
Offered by PNA247

5.0 out of 5 stars stunning visuals, and deep! story, 29 Aug. 2009
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
the Perry Rhodan universe is actually the bestselling sci-fi storyline ever created. Strangely though many have never heard of it outside Europe. The story material has been going on since 1961, and is still published today. the universe has a lot in common with star trek, particular aliens have particular quirks, and other things specific to there race. The universe Rhodan is happening in, also takes advantage of science breakthroughs from out own universe, the latest theories on quantum mechanics etc. really makes for a deeply reconcilable place.
The game it self has clearly been treated with care its very professionally made, everything from the cut scenes, the storyline, and the menus are all very well done. There are some puzzles that are reminiscent of "good" old pixel hunting, though, but not so much as to bring down playability, the puzzles seem logical too me and I had no difficulty solving them. The game is not as heavy on the humour as games like monkey island, but it will make you smile, im told its even better if you are already familiar with some of the stories that go before the game. All in all this was a very welcome game, and a good one at that, but it was mostly memorable because of the graphics which are just stunning.

5.0 out of 5 stars almost could not watch it to the end, 15 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Grave of the Fireflies [DVD] (DVD)
I had to force my self through the last part of the film, Its that heartfelt and it made me cry. This should be a mandatory film of anyone thinking war is justifiable.

4.0 out of 5 stars feels like a console port, 25 Aug. 2008
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
The controls are simply too horrific to describe. I only have three words "bad console port". This game feels like it was suppose to run on a PS2 and not on a PC, the movement is reminiscent of the first tom raider game, minus the auto target feature. The inventory requires way to many clicks, movements and mouseovers before something happens. point and click would have sufficed here, not: tab scroll one way, select, scroll another way, select again, combine, repeat...(you get the picture). The combat (yes you now do combat in adventure games too) suffers due to the bad controles and I found it difficult to do any of the fights, feels like Tekken but with a mouse and WSAD keys. Other then that the game suffers a great deal of obvious movie rip offs, (Gollums cave and blair witch are most obvious) which is really sad.

If you can see past these failings, the game is quite good. If you played longest journey before, there are numerous references and they weave in with the story very nicely. Story sound graphics, and the world are all really good. So it's 4 stars from me, since it's above average.
