4.0 out of 5 stars ... game when it was released - but always heard good things about it and I can say it is ..., 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Missed playing this game when it was released - but always heard good things about it and I can say it is one of the best GBA games I have ever played. Excellent game-play and some nice little touches in the graphics here and there, make this game a must purchase for your Gameboy

3.0 out of 5 stars and thought it was a good series at the time, 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I watched this back in the 1990s (think it was on channel 4), and thought it was a good series at the time. But re-watching it didn't really grab me like it did 1st time around. Perhaps it is the rise of cable tv and the new golden age of usa imports that kinda makes this series seem a little off, but if you want a trip down memory lane, it is still worth a watch (if just to refresh your old memories of the series).

5.0 out of 5 stars This is a great tablet (for what I need it for), 18 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a great tablet (for what I need it for). I bought it as a upgrade/replacement and it is excellent in terms of value for money and bangs for your bucks. I use it for reading (both comics and novels) and also watching videos and the picture quality if pin sharp. There is no slowing down or freezing whilst playing videos, the battery lasts for around 10 hours and reading comics is a joy as the screen is very good for zooming in and out on various panels (8" as well, which is just the right size I think). One of the best features of this tablet is that you can plug a data-pen into the back of it and either transfer your files (which is very easy) or just read direct from the pen - no messing around with cable or wifi downloading (the internet is fast and reliable on this machine by the way). If you have to chose a budget range tablet I would / can recommend this one, it has bags of free memory, plenty of good features, and most importantly, a very good touch screen. Okay, so it isn't an ipad, but is a lot cheaper...

Excellent fit and solid build. If you need a replacement lens cap for your camera and lens-kit, this is the one.

This review is from: Sega Arcade Gallery (Video Game)
4 classic games, with one of my all time favourite 'Out-run' in the package (that also has a cheat you can find online to give you unlimited time). All of the games are good, with Out-run being the best, followed by Space Harrier and Hang-on, and Afterburner being the least favourite. Worth a look and will bring back those old late 80s early 90s memories.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Minish Cap - Legend of Zelda (GBA), 30 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I love the Zelda games and for about 10 years didn't play any - as I had a PS2 / PS3, but recently bought a GBA off ebay to paly some early Zelda games and this is one of the better titles. Excellent graphics and gameplay, with a story that is gripping and with a host of characters you will like (and make you smile). The only downside is the game is too short and some of the dungons are very easy to navigate thru... but that said, it is one of the best games you will ever play (if you like the series or these type of action rpg) and it is worth dusting off your old GBA or DS to play it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Robert Rodrigues - Rebel without a crew, 30 Nov 2013

This review is from: Rebel without a Crew (Paperback)
What can I say that hasn't been said before, this guy is probably one of the best film makers to come out of the early 1990's indie boom and this book is a no bar account of his experiences making his 1st film and also has his 10 minute film school thrown in. If you are serious about a making a film (be it a short or feature) this is the book to buy - full of useful tips and insight of the film business, as it is was the 1990s, it is still worth checking out.

Catclaw DSLR Rig Handgrip For 15mm Rod Handle Matte Box Rail Support System 5D2 60D 7D 550D

5.0 out of 5 stars Catclaw DSLR rig handles, 30 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Spotted on Amazon for a reasonable price and recently tested them out on a busy music video shoot - involving a lot of hand-held camera work - and these handles are just the job. Very comfortable, well made and fit perfectly onto my 15mm matte box rail. You can adjust to suit you mood - I was using them with my shoulder mount support and also free hand (pointing up) so I could use my rig for low angle shots. Can highly recommend these handles for your rig.

4.0 out of 5 stars Duke Nukem Forever - PS3, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Duke is back (I know it gets said all the time), but for some reason it lacks the appeal of the my PSone games (a time to kill and original Duke), the graphics are good and the game play is good, but I think the developers need to a rethink about how retro they want this game to feel, as it felt dated the moment the music kicks in. That said, it is still worth a play and has some clever touches here and there. One for fans of Duke, anyone else, perhaps stick to modern shooters

5.0 out of 5 stars Batter pack for Canon 600d, 19 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't fault this battery - it lasts just as long (maybe a bit longer) than the canon one I got with the camera and charges in half the time. So impressed, I have ordered another one.
