5.0 out of 5 stars the PC of the handheld world, 23 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Simply fantastic. Brilliant for PC streaming, emulators and native android games. Half Life 2 and Portal are also an excellent touch. Would love to see more Valve titles reach my nvidia shield portable. Also the battery life is nothing short of excellent. Best handheld ive ever owned.

Does require some knowlege on Android. Think of it as the PC of the handheld world. Requires some tinkering and setup, but the results are more than worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars incredable, 8 Dec. 2014
This review is from: Superman (N64) (Video Game)
Not only did this game was my car, but it also threw it into another car, causing mass devastation, destruction and death. But thanks to the power of reality distortion this game possesses, throwing cars at other cars is considered a heroic act to the world and I was hailed as a hero.

Also, you'll have so much fun solving Luther's mazes. Mazes that complex that they don't even present a choice of direction and they're still hard.

1.0 out of 5 stars Time COD wa stopped now., 20 Feb. 2014
This franchise has stagnated enough. Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare was probably the best COD ever made. Since then the franchise has been milked and dumbed down to high heaven. COD:Ghosts is a pitifully weak attempt, insultingly short single player, samey multiplayer and horribly clichéd and unrealistic plot.

Apocalyptically bad.

1.0 out of 5 stars Totally stupid., 25 Nov. 2013
Was a fan of the modern warfare franchise, but MW3/MW2 sort of slowly lost me with its stupidity. In COD:Ghosts, the stupidity continues. The Ghosts are supposedly a force of secret special operations guys who fight quietly behind enemy lines for a supposedly weakened America. They proceed their secret fights by storming into an enemy base with a burning truck and proceeding to shoot everybody loudly as alarms rang loudly. And not only is the plot stupid, but its somehow easier than the last COD games. It felt challenge-less.

It is fun playing as a dog, the only bit of stealthy backstabby sort of gameplay I expected from the game there is. But it dies and the entire team is cut up about it, but not seemingly when the token black person of the squad pegs it.

The entire thing is unrealistic, easy and very ridiculous. This supposedly weakened America, (fighting south America for some reason) appears to have an unlimited supply of resources and there is nothing really covert or secretive or stealthy about the Ghosts at all. They just march into pretty much every scenario and shoot everybody until there is nobody left to shoot.

2/10. Seriously, this game is garbage. It feels like Call of Duty fan fiction written by an adolescent. Maybe, one day, we'll get another modern military shooter as good as COD4.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs a lot of improvement, 10 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The OS is very basic and could do with a lot of improvements. Web browsing it handles perfectly and the start-up is lightning fast. Regretfully, it lacks apps, decent file exploring and drivers. ChromeOS also has this habit of crashing and resetting itself, although to be fair it is very quick at doing so.

For me, Web Apps don't cut it. Especially when the majority of them are utter garbage. ChromeOS needs a boost.

5.0 out of 5 stars I do not understand all the negativity..., 6 Sept. 2012
This review is from: Relapse (Audio CD)
I think this is an awesome comeback album from Ministry. I'm glad Al has moved onto other topics than President Bush. I find all of the songs catchy, powerful and well produced. I love it.

Damn this is one funny book. It is amazing how you can imagine the real queen with such a flippant attitude to current events. Certainly a must have. To be read with a gin.

1.0 out of 5 stars Claimed it worked with Windows 98, 30 Sept. 2011
Claimed it worked with Windows 98 and it didn't. A total waste of money. Tried everything, the driver CD it came with wasn't Windows 98 compatible.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Respect Issue Part 2, 9 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Speaker Of The Dead (Audio CD)
It's an okay album, but no way near the brilliance of Goodbye to the Gallows and Felony. The album starts off very promising, Children of the Cybertron is a kickass intro, Area 64-66 has some great breakdowns, Dogs Get Put Down has to be the best song on this album, and Demons With Ryu is also pretty good.

However, after that, the album seems to die and slowly becomes the aural equivalent of drowning in tar. It kinda lacks momentum after Demons With Ryu and just sounds generic and boring. Another criticism would be that the lyrics aren't half as good as previous albums, even The Respect Issue.

It has some good tracks though. It's just not the brilliance Emmure promiced.
