Batman Arkham City: Armored Edition (Nintendo Wii U)

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of fun, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've really enjoyed playing this game. For me, a lazy casual gamer with a low tolerance for having to repeatedly play the same level, it's pitched just about perfectly. Progress is swift with a decent variety of game play. This game makes good use of the Wii U gamepad, which is a nice bonus.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I was expecting, but not bad, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Reading the reviews for this game before purchasing I was expecting a FPS with some RPG elements but, in fact, it's an RPG with some FPS. It's quite nicely done, but I was looking for a casual shoot-em-up rather than having to spend time talking to various game characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars Works, 18 Feb. 2014

There's not much that can go wrong with this, I guess. It's a good weight and a near perfect fit for the portafilter on my De'Longhi espresso machine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Works OK for charging, but data broken, 18 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought the 1m version of this cable, but I assume the same will be true of the 2m I also ordered but which hasn't arrived yet.

Basically, it doesn't work. At least it doesn't work for connecting any of my android devices to my PC through my USB hub. I tried the cable with my phone and two Nexus 7s and, while the devices charged each time, the data connection was either missing or mangled (flickering data connection LED on the hub). The only combination that did work for data was using the cable plugged into a USB socket on my PC connected to my phone .. but the tablets wouldn't work with the cable plugged into the PC, so it's all a bit hit and miss.

The vendor (digitalsave) was excellent and sent me a replacement cable, but the results were identical. Charging OK, data broken.

Can't recommend these cables unless all you want to do is charge your devices.

UPDATE: The 2m cable arrived today and it has the same problem: it doesn't work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Decent product, 11 Jan. 2014

The best feature of this item is that the sockets are well spaced out so that plugging in a "wall wart" power adapter doesn't obscure adjacent sockets. It looks a lot neater than a 10 gang trailing socket laying on the floor too.

Cannot fault the picture quality with these - Aliens is particularly impressive given the graininess of the film source. Some nice features and a ton of extras - cracking value at 15 pounds!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good fun, 11 Jan. 2014

This is my six-year-old daughter's "first" real video game. It's pitched just about spot on for her - not so easy that it's boring, not so tough that she doesn't want to play, and enough cuteness to keep her interested in what was going to happen next. The timed aspect of the story mode can be a bit frustrating for her, particularly if it took her a little while to figure out what she needed to do, but there's an option to start the level over again rather than fail at a mission. Looks beautiful too.

5.0 out of 5 stars My daughter loves this, 11 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
She's six ;-) Great for the kids and there are a few adult games available too. If you're getting this as a birthday or Xmas present for a child, do yourself a favour and set the software up first - there are a lot of software updates to install and you don't want to be watching a progress bar with a disappointed child.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bought these on a whim, 11 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
"These" because there are two per pack (not obvious from the description unless you scroll down a bit) - which made them about 1.40 each including P&P. I'm not sure if I'll ever use them because I don't take my tripod out and about with me, but they could prove useful on the rare occasions when I go out with my monopod .. or possibly when using live view. More sensitive, and hopefully more accurate, than the artificial horizon built into my D7000. They're now sitting in my camera bag waiting for an opportunity to prove themselves useful.

Great for removing minor scratches from stainless steel - a must have to keep your polished watch cases and straps looking like new.
