5.0 out of 5 stars Hostile AIs assault the real world and the virtual worlds., 19 Feb. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: CTRL ALT Revolt! (Kindle Edition)
This was great. A plausible near future where massively multiplayer online games intersect with real life and hostile AIs. I don't want to spoil it, but you should read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality product, 11 Nov. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This thing is great. I've got the 3 arm one, and I've mounted it on top of my desk with 3 24" monitors.

It was easy to adjust and I got my monitors to the correct height and orientation easily. The product itself is obviously very well made.

2.0 out of 5 stars Throw this one back, 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really wanted to like this series. I got through the first box set, and though "Hey, maybe this will get better." I love and have read a lot of zombie fiction.

It doesn't, sadly. There's so many cardboard characters, most of them die and you have no idea who they were and you don't care anyway. The one fleshed out character seems to be the author inserted into the book. He's a super handsome, capable, strong zombie book nerd who gets the hottest girl left alive in the world, who is also super awesome and competent.

Ya, it's like that. I can't recommend anyone buy it. I wasn't able to finish it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not for experienced game devs., 21 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book maybe be suitable for new game programmers. I didn't find it that useful, as it mostly talks about pretty basic graphics programming stuff. I wanted an experts manual to get up to speed on the changes in Direct3D in DX11, and this isn't it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't do what I did., 3 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't buy this.

First, one of the other reviewers is correct when he says that the author knows nothing about science. He obviously doesn't. Sadly, he doesn't seem to know about anything. Here's some highlights from the first 20 pages:

1. He doesn't know anything about scrapyards. (The main character grew up in one. Apparently he thinks cars like a Chevy Bel Air and other rare early American cars would have been there since his characters childhood. It also doesn't seem to sell any of the scrap, but just collect it. Forever. )
2. He doesn't know anything about the Navy. (The main character is a Navy SEAL leader AND the commander of a Naval Warship! And he's super awesome, you guys!)
3. He doesn't know anything about the military. (The main character shoots some really, really bad men from medium range with his sidearm, rather than use the H&K MP5 which is his primary weapon. He gets 5 headshots in a row and saves the day because he's really awesome you guys. His SEAL squad just watches as he doesn't bother to give them any orders to do it, just does it himself.)
4. He doesn't know anything about human psychology. (His super awesome navy SEAL character reacts in a completely blase way to stepping on a bunch of glass while barefoot [see item 1], and meeting an alien.)

Another review compared this to 20s and 30s pulp science fiction. Those old Space Operas had a lot in common with this, but they had some knowledge of the things they wrote about and made some good guesses/extrapolation for their technologies. Your average Perry Rhodan novel is better than this.

It's just really terrible writing and everything else. Don't buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Couldn't finish it., 1 Dec. 2013

I loved the premise, but the book reads like bad juvenilia. The dialog is stilted, the characters are unbelievable, and the hero is pretty flawless. Skip it.
