5.0 out of 5 stars Uncharted 4 - A fitting goodbye to an old friend, 11 May 2016
There comes a time in gaming when a new franchise launches to critical acclaim, changing the rules of an entire industry. Uncharted: Drake's Fortune did that back almost 10 years ago on the PS3 when NaughtyDogs unrivaled storytelling and direction changed the way we viewed story driven action games, not just on PlayStation, but across the gaming board. It's since spawned two sequels on the PS3, Uncharted 2 which took everything from the first game and ramped it up to 11. Uncharted 3 followed with a bigger budget, but arguably the worst in the franchise. So, when Naughty Dog unveiled Uncharted 4 for a new console generation, some, myself included, wondered if the company was milking a dead cow. The games, whilst superb on the last generation, storytelling aged well, but game mechanics didn't. New franchises launched in the gaming industry that now did the gameplay action a little better leaving many to wonder should there really be a another Uncharted? (Die Hard 4 anyone?) And here we are....
Uncharted 4, simply put, reminds us why Naughty Dog are unrivaled in storytelling. U4 is actually written by The Last Of Us lead designer and director, Neil Druckman and it shows. Story, acting, direction and gameplay are all top draw. It's a slow starter, explaining to us what Nate has been up to in the last few years since his last outing. He's settled down and paying his taxes. But once the action really begins, it's Uncharted revamped, fully pumped and ready to get the treasure. Graphically it's been said this is the best looking game on the console (I have to say I still think that one goes to The Order 1886, despite the negatives that game produced, visually it's outstanding) Uncharted 4 sure is a stunning looker. The character models are phenomenal, right down to the pumping veins in Nate's neck to the little eye twitch from Sully. They don't need to be there, they are and it's those what would seem like tiny miniscule touches that really magnifies to make your jaw drop at what Naughty Dog have once again accomplished here. Then you have the acting from the phenomenal cast that we grew to love. Our lead actors make natural seem like you're watching a fly on the wall documentary, not someone holding a script. They are THAT good. The game has you trekking prison slums, from tropical jungles to graveyards in Scotland. The story is fantastic, and whilst slow to begin with, it gives us a fitting farewell to a loved bunch of characters. The 12 hours it took to complete were done with excitement, laughter (lots of laughter) and tension. One final walk with a friend. A fitting ended to wonderful franchise.

5.0 out of 5 stars For once, quality might just justify the extra cost! - Bloodborne Collectors edition, 28 Mar. 2015
It goes without saying, with this being the 4th game of its type given to us by the now renound From Software team, most players will have an idea of what you will be getting and experiencing in its 80+ hours. Not to mention the procedurally generated dungeons and New Game plus modes that practically make the game everlasting if you want it to beyond its story. So with the review scores already out, to critical acclaim, I'm not here to give you a review of it except for the truth, the game is truly brilliant. More of a homage (very slightly) to Demons Souls more than Dark Souls, which considering for me is a amazing thing, being that I always preferred Demons Souls over Dark Souls.

The reason I'm actually here is to give a very quick account of this Collectors Edition. It's basically a Steel book, easily the most gorgeous of any I've seen in a long time. And for once, this UK/EU versions art work is much better and striking than that of its US counterpart. The picture shown by Amazon on this page of the Steel book and artbook is actually of the US version, if you want to see the EU version, have a look on YouTube, it's much nicer looking. Inside the Steel Book is the game obviously, an instruction sheet for controls and a download code for the digital soundtrack. Which, whilst you might not be downloading to listen to and play at your next house party, it's a phenomenal piece of work considering it's all purely orchestrated for the game. Then there is a nice little 40 page hardback artbook containing some of the characters and beasts you'll encounter in the game. Beautiful illustrations and descriptions we've come to expect from From Software. All of this is contained in a stylish hard card container, with a matt velvety feel, its quality as always from these developers.

So why should you spend an £20+ on these small extras when all you really want is the game right?Back when Demons/Dark Souls was released, early buyers got all this (excluding the steel book) for the same price of the standard version. So, like you, i was dubious about paying the extra, feeding into what is usually greedy hands coning us gamers for what is essential a bit of extra tat. That would normally be the case for many other games at least. Where there collectors edition are still in stock months after release. For me, Collectors/Special editions used to be and should be a very limited run. A 'Once they're gone they're gone' thing, and fortunately, From Software believes in this too, it has for all its games. So rest assured, as a collector, this is worth the extra, knowing you'll have an item that is highly limited that in a few weeks/months gamers will want but will no longer be able to buy. It's very rare id agree paying the extra, but on this occasion it's a no brainer. Quality all around from possibly one of the greatest games that will be made in this generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Original Beast still roars!, 13 Jun. 2014
There really isn't much to say I guess now about the iPod classic, that you probably don't already know. It's your stripped up music player. No downloadable games. No internet access. No WiFi. It's a pure music experience, and that's why I love it.
I had an iPod Touch for a few years, great gadget but with the abilities of the mobile phone these days you really have to question do you need your iPod to do it too and in turn sacrifice huge amounts of storage space? The easy answer for me was no. I wanted my iPod to listen to music on, and with 160gb to play with I don't think i'll quite be chopping and changing my music like I was on my Touch. The Classic is super smart, not very big at all and no longer has the EU noise restriction ruling that early models had. Meaning you can listen to music as loud as you intended, headphones permitting. Still the best 'Pure Music' player there is and even though it's not had a model revision in 5 years as of going this, it's still as brilliant as it was day one. If you want your own music, you want an iPod Classic!

Simply brilliant. Whilst I initially preferred Love strong as an album, this one grows and when it does, it's addictive. Brilliant work from a wonderful artist

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional value for money!, 3 Feb. 2014
First off, I didn't purchase this from Amazon itself, but it was direct from the seller and there warehouse in Leicester, so it is The same model.

Now, with that aside. I bought this chair for my mother who is in her 70s and spends most of her days sat in front of the TV. I wanted a chair for her that was comfortable enough to not just sit in, but spend most of the day in, and All in all, this chair excels.

I had looked around many furniture shops at similar, and to be honest, chairs of what were less quality at nearly twice the price. Browsing around on the net one day, I came across this chair. The reviews were excellent, but the price made me doubt the quality of the finish and frame. You get what you pay for after all right?

Well in this case, you actually get a bit more than that. Incredibly comfortable, and stylish to boot. If you're thinking of buying a recliner, look no further.

The only thing that is a criticism is that it can be quite hard to push the foot rest back into place at first, so if it's for someone with very weak legs, they may struggle.

It comes in one big square box that is wide enough to fit through a standard double glazed doorway so don't worry about getting it into the house. After that, you just slide the back into the base, and two back arm rests into the back and you're done. It literally took less that 10 minutes to unbox it and have it set up in place.

If you can't afford too much, but still want comfort and style, then this is your recliner!

James Herbert at one of his best. But maybe that's because this was the first JH book I ever read. Non the less, at this price just buy it. A quality book by a superb author!

5.0 out of 5 stars Let's be honest, straight down the line!, 23 May 2013
If you have Never played Silent Hill 2 or 3, and are over the age of 25, you have nothing to lose here and two genuinely true classic survival horrors to discover. The reason I say 25 is just a guide due to the different mechanics used here compared to what I class as 'modern' games. The controls and camera are old school, which adds an abundence of atmosphere but will frustrate the younger crowd. If you played these back in the day, you honestly have nothing to worry about here unless you are a die hard fanatic verging on OCD. The last patch for the PS3 fixed the major issues and the two games play like a dream. If you're not sure, wait for a price drop, if you're tempted, just get on with it and buy the blooming thing!
