5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommend!, 28 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a find this book was. Insightful, compassionate, inspiring and helpful. Anyone going through a breakup should read this (or any of Magda B Brajer's other books) for advice and support. It was like having a best friend put their arm around me!

5.0 out of 5 stars I didn't think Oblivion could be topped....i was wrong, 28 Dec 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Fallout 3 (PS3) (Video Game)
Fallout 3 is a stunning game, hands down.
Now, i have not played either Fallout 1 or Fallout 2, but i picked up FO3 because of amazing reviews, and really, i'm not dissapointed.
I'm no good at writing reviews for RPGs, so i'll keep this simple:
Fallout 3 is one of the best games i have played this year, and is the ultimate blood-filled aternative to Oblivion once you've done with it

4.0 out of 5 stars Welcome to Oblivion....where glitches roam the land, 27 Nov 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Now, i'm going to start off by saying i LOVE Oblivion, its freedom, its land, its combat, its characters.
And by almost all respects it's a masterpiece beyond what any other dev could even IMAGINE.
So...what keeps it fropm a five star?
One word: GLITCHES!
Within the first hour the game froze up, forcing me to reboot.
Pop-up is constant and frame rate drops are more than comman.
This is the PS3 FOR CHRISSAKE!
But, enough of that.
The gameplay and freedom is stunning, allowing you to be whoever you want in this huge, free world.
I have yet to start playing the main quest, or the Knights of the Nine secvondery main quest, all i have done is roamed around enjoying myselff and messing about.
That's where the joy lies

5.0 out of 5 stars After the boring, out of sync rubbish of Demon Apocolypse, and the uneventfull mess of Death's Shadow Mr.Shan is finaly back, 29 Oct 2008
Now, befoe you read this and start shouting 'IDIOT' i would just like to say this, i AM a HUGE Darren Shan fan, but lets face it, Demon Apocolypse was utter garbage, it strayed from his style with bad writing and the stupidest plot twist of all time.
And Death's Shadow wasn't much better, it was uneventfull and provided next to no story advances (impart from the death of a certain character), suffice to say his last two were horrible weak points.
But now we have Wolf Island, a story running parralel to Death's Shadow (cliche or what?), but hell is it GOOD!
The story advances in leeps and bounds, making up for the past two rubbish books, the characters feel more like what they did in the first four books (thankfully), making the veterans of the series relate and like them again.
The writing style is back to, in Demon Apocolypse and Death's Shadow he seemed to of been suffering from a horrible writers block in which he had to force story out, but it's clearly been kicked out o the way now.
It's smooth, violent and gritty, just how it should be.
In two words: Much better

5.0 out of 5 stars A mature and horrific masterpiece, 19 Aug 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
I got this game on a bit of a fluke, i was in PC world with my mum and step-mum choosing a game, i picked this up and glanced over the back of the box, but having no idea of the gameplay or story i decided to leave be and opted for a sure-fire choice.
But my step-mum had seen it and thought it my thing so bought it for me, and, quite simply, it was the best gaming suprise of my life.
Condemned is THE survival horror.
You see while the Resident Evil and Silent Hill games were fun you more than often felt you were on an unstopple mission to kill zombies and own leather people laired in fog rather than surviving against all odds.
In Condemned it completly rips apart the old survival horror template and replaces it with somthing diffrent, and so immersive you'll find it hard to return to reality.
Condemned does somthing incredibly unique, you are never loading up your gun saying 'come on you sons of b****s' and taking on a hoard of mad men.
You are forced to fight however possible, using anything from draws, lead pipes, and pieces of wood, guns are sparce.
Imagine the scene, your in an old library with your partner, the place has been ransacked by a mad man known as Serial Killer X, up ahead you hear mad screaming and manic laughing, you advance slowly down the corridoor, glancing at Rosa just to remind yourself your not alone, then from beside you a window smashes and your forced to go and finish off your stalker, and after hitting him over the head with a pipe a couple of times you exsit, fear drenched on your face, fearing what else lies ahead, and, just after you think you'll get a breather theres a crash, a scream, and Rosa is gone, the insane drugged up tramps are swarming ahead, all that runs through your mind is fear.
In short Condemned rips apart what is sacred about survival horror and ensures you will never look upon a street bum the same way again.

*random information*: the game has a brilliant compabillity setting, i have a balls computer yet it still runs it brilliantly and smoothly, Sega and Monoloth clearly noted we don't all have insane amounts of money to burn on Graphics and Sound Cards, i'd recconmend XP but 2000 and Vista work well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Damn good!, 18 July 2008
Calling it the 'Ultimate' boxset is slightly pompus, its very very good but not 'Ultimate' (GITS 2nd gig, Mezzo DSA, both better) but either way this will vanquish bordem into hell and continusly stamp on it.
The first three disks contain all of the Project A-Ko series, its looking more dated than earth itself nowadays but its fun, entertraining and zany.
The next is Dominion Tank Police, i haven't got around to watching much of it yet so i can't comment.
The 5th disk holds whats possibly the WORST anime ever created, *note to Manga: NEVER GIVE THE AMERICANS A JAPENESE LISENCE!*, the action is disgusting, but not in the good way, the blood looks like powder, the animation is generic and sterotypical and the voice acting made me want to crack my head open, this monstrosity is the reason i didn't give the set a five star.
And lastly, we have the jewl in the crown: La Blue Girl Returns.
Theres no denying that the first series was a horrible piece of degrading garbage and the second series was only mildly better because it contained a story of sorts, but this is the third series (thankfully keeping it short but sweet with only four 25min episodes), now Returns has clearly been radicly cut by the BBFC (mainly on the second disk, the first is rather unnoticable) but the most part is still in there and it'll keep the average h-fan happy if they don't want to import.
So, all in all, its a great boxset that'll make you laugh, cringe with glee and smile, just make sure you burn M.D Geist as soon as you get it, trust me, you'll be making the world a better place.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much fun so little time...., 18 July 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Ok ok, this game won't immerse you to the point of no return, nor will it stun you with its gameplay.
But, in a world like ours, Rumble Roses XX is the ultimate gift to a teenage boy, and easily the most fun.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stands out in a mansion full of games and zombies...., 6 July 2008
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Resident Evil DS is incredible, thats about all that can be truely justified.
They crammed a PS1 game into a tiny DS cartridge with all new features and even multiplayer.
You all know the story by now (i highly doubt you'd be viewing it if you didn't!) So i'm not going to bother with the small print.
I waited for Resi DS for a whole year, i knew every scrap of news and every shot like the back of my own hand. BUt, it got to the stage where i was so excited that i began to think that, dispite my resi-fanboy-isam, it'd never live up to the hype of being the orginial game and have multiplayer on such a small cartridge.
It was a fifty-fifty thing in the end, the single player remains to this day one of the best 'mature' adventures in videogames and still manages to send shivvers up my spine at the sight of a giant spider spitting toxic.
And the revamped 'Rebirth' mode is just incredible, using the DS primery functions such as the mic to give the kiss of life to a fallen team-mate, to using your styless as a knife, the rebirth mode is awesome.
But, where it falls to fifty fifty, is the multiplayer.
Theres two modes, co-op, where up to four people work together to rid the mansion of zombies and hunters, and a mode i can't remember the name of, where four players battle it out to kill the m,ost monsters, and when all zombies are dead, the winner is the person with the most points.
The co-op is absoloutly brilliant fun and is some of the best multiplyer on DS, but the vs mode is pretty bad.
But what really lets it down is the fact you can't see the other players on yoiur screen, they just apper as arrows!
All i all, the 'deffinitive' version of Resi 1, for people who want to relive the golden days of the PLaystations masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terryfying....., 4 July 2008

Silent Hill has always been a cult faveorite in pretty much every gamers mind, in some way its always been pinned lovingly on a gamers thumb.
But the fourth game in the series is quite a diffrent fare.
The gameplay is superb for a SH game, with gritty, scary graphics, great controls and ugly flesh monsters all knocking the atmosphere up to 11, its scary, violent, and strangly sexy in places.
And while we're on the subject of atmosphere, SH4 has perfected it, in a way, you can see the developers said 'right, SH fan want scary and sick, and by god will we give them scaryand sick', it ranges from all sorts of gros matters that will strain on the stumoch like a tightner and will shred the nerves like a chainsaw.
Although, with everything so perfect theres some flaws.
For instance some of the diolouge can be horibly acted, making you feel like your watching the acting in the orginial RE.
An the camera is pap, for the best part i found myself attacked from corners by monster owl things when i did't know the freaken' thing was even following me.
All i all a near perfect Survival Horror for the sicko in all of us, just make your its with your lights on
