Doesn't live up to the complaints

Reviewed by on

I know this game has received a lot of negative publicity for reusing old resources and having some Pokemon not available, but I find this hardly detracts from the experience at all. Despite some of my usual favourites being unavailable I had a harder time than ever deciding which monsters to keep in my party and which to keep in the box, and thanks to the Box Link feature I was able to conveniently manage a party of thirteen rather than the traditional six. The shared EXP people complain about was also a heavensend in keeping my levels even where otherwise I simply wouldn't have had the time to grind every single monster individually. Dynamax battles are also a huge convenience thanks to the Pokemon you use not gaining experience from the fight as the EXP Candies you earn from them can be given to whichever Pokemon you wish.

TLDR if you know how to look for it the pros of this game vastly outnumber the cons

Cool, but it's actually Enamel Pin Badge not Badges

Reviewed by on

From the five shown pin badges, you only get one and I didn't get to choose which one. It's a two star rating because I actually wanted the Triangle,Square, X, Circle badge but I got the ?controller pin?
.
Pin Badge has a nice size to it, it's not as small as it looks.
It came well packaged, delivery time was okay.
But it's one and not five badges

As his other genuine films show, Tati is a genius. This is his very worst work, a bad Swedish TV show when he is sadly long past his best. Out of kindness and respect to Tati, one should not watch this at all.

Great mouse by Lenovo

Reviewed by on

This wireless mouse is a good option for travelling, exactly what I needed. I've had it for six months, batteries still good, working flawlessly. The scroll wheel does feel a bit loose. Was a bit concerned about size and build quality before getting it, however it's great. Very nice nice finish and feel.

Great card

Reviewed by on

I am very happy with this card.
It performs well and has excellent thermals with minimal fan noise. It is a definite upgrade from my older GTX1070.

I have run a few RTX compatible games with the card on my i7 rig and I can happily say that if you are running games in 1080p with RTX enabled you will be hitting frame-rates near and above 100fps. This will drop the more you push your resolution, but it all depends on your rig.

All-in-all, this is a good card and I found it worth my cash.

Great kit to practice on

Reviewed by on

This is a great kit to start with if you are new to the hobby. There are not too many parts, and assembly is fairly straight forward. The tracks are a bit too short, and does not have the drooping effect which the real vehicle has. My only gripe with the kit is that the interior is not accurate at all. Not even close. However, for the price this kit is selling at, you get good value for money.

I've ordered another one in order to mount the PAK 36 anti-tank gun on it. Have fun with this kit!

As good as the hype

Reviewed by on

I'm from a D&d 2nd Ed background so when I saw the game I thought that's what I was going to get, BUT it is so much more.

The fast game play while working out combos with your friends is lots of fun. The challenge is keeping the right page so you don't run out of cards before the quest is done. This is really a deck building game mixed with role-playing elements. No game master is needed which is great too. Just play. Highly recommended if you have time to spare. The games do take some time, but you don't feel it

Code worked as expected. Includes the base game as well as the two expansions.

Note: If compared to the Campaign Collection available on the Battle.net store, the Battle Chest does NOT include the Nova Covert Ops. However, this is still much cheaper, and once redeemed the Campaign Collection will have a reduced cost so you can still buy those separately without 'buying it twice'.

Nothing is what it seems

Reviewed by on

And neither is this film which was marketed as a spy thriller - recruit versus recruiter, rookie versus mentor - but is actually a human drama involving a bereft son searching for answers about his father who disappeared years prior to the events of the story and who may have been a prominent CIA agent other than just a Shell Oil worker.

Violent in parts, funny in some and all parts add up to a great whole with Colin Farrell, Al Pacino, Bridget Moynahan and Gabriel Macht as the stars giving it their all.

The Bible of pop music

Reviewed by on

This album holds a very special place in the hearts of all Britney fans, as it was released during a very turbulent time in Spears' career. In spite of her personal struggles, Blackout is the album that most pop singers tried to imitate. Without Blackout there would be no Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, and Ariana Grande.

The album is described as a dance-pop album, with house, dubstep, RnB, Euro-Disco, and EDM influences. It's hard to pick out a particular highlight from this album, as ALL songs are incredible.

The album gave us 3 singles (all of which have become iconic): "Gimme More", "Piece of Me", and "Break The Ice". "Radar" was planned to be released as the 4th and final single off of Blackout, but was scrapped when Spears' begun work on her 6th studio album: Circus. However, due to a contract Spears had with the producers of "Radar" (Bloodshy and Avant), Jive records was obligated to release it as a single. It is for this reason that the track "Radar" can be found on both Blackout and Circus, respectively, and the track was then released as the 4th single off the Circus album.

Blackout is the album in which Spears' premiered her icon line: "It's Britney Bitch!". The album has been certified Platinum 8 times (1 in Australia, 1 in Canada, 1 in Ireland, 4x in Russia, and 1in The United States), and has won Britney Spears a "Best Album of the Year" award.

To date, this album remains a staple in any Britney Spears fans collection, and is widely considered Spears' best album of her career.
