Great game, worth the price!

Reviewed by on

I have played this game for the past 2 months on a Xbox 360, and I wanted to buy the expansions when they released.
Instead I purchased the PS4 limited edition which included the expansions for a very good price!
I have been playing it on the new console and its amazing! Great buy!

Cartoony fun

An excellent game to add some cartoony variety to a gaming scene where realistic seems to be the ultimate goal.

This game will be great for the kids, but also for any age since the game is fun and funny and the characters are great!

GOTY of 2014 so far

Reviewed by on

Out of seemingly nowhere Middle-Earth: Shadow of Mordor has come out guns or in this case bows & swords blazing, as one of the contenders for Game of the Year for 2014.

If you imagine a mix-up of Batman, GTA, Assassins Creed set in the rich Tolkien Lord of the Rings universe, then you will have a pretty good idea of how the game plays.

Load of side missions, and constantly something new happening, as you battle to defeat Sauron's army. Killing orcs never stops being fun.

Something old, something new, definitely better

Reviewed by on

For those new to the hobby, the latest iteration of Dungeons and Dragons (5th Edition) is an excellent starting point for getting into the wonderful world of tabletop role-playing games. Something of a "greatest hits" of past versions, the rules are simple to learn and incredibly fun to play. D&D 5e is the culmination of years of community play-testing and feedback. The result being, a streamlined and well paced playing experience.
For those experienced payers who drifted away from the RPG feeling that the game had lost touch with its roots, now's the time to rekindle that old love. With a perfect balance of pathos and intelligent design this truly is the finest edition crafted with love and thought.
The Player's Handbook is all you will need to unlock vast worlds of imagination and fantasy. So grab some friends, roll some dice and set off for adventure!

Watch your Back

Reviewed by on

This was one of those books I could not put down. Detective Stevie lost her husband and son in a convenience store shooting. She goes out to bring the guilty to justice. The author mixes romance and suspense into her book. The ending was lame but the rest was very intriguing. A book with a lot of plots and unexpected turns. If you like reading Karen Rose books you will enjoy this one.

Gone Girl

Reviewed by on

It is about a wife that disappears and the husband becomes the suspect. The book captures one's attention from page one. It gives you a thrill of excitement that this is going to be a book you cannot put down. Then the excitement is all gone as it jumps from the Nick to Amy. It becomes boring. You want to read on about what happened to Amy but find yourself in her diary and the next chapter is back to Nick, the husband. I found the book stretched out and it would have been a great read it they stopped jumping from him to her.

Paulo is a genius, and if you want to tap into some of his knowledge, read this book but I reccomend that you read it with The monk who sold his Ferrari (forgot the author), and The pilgramge- Paulo Coelho.

Nigeria - Biafra

Reviewed by on

Chimamada will out live us all in her words on the pages of her books. That will staye behind long after we have dead. I have travelled to Nigeria and back through her words and her writing. In today's society we are experince alot of race and gender prejeduce. In this book you get to discover that within our own race there is more conflict that we need to face, within our own cultures and how diverse black people are. It is about family and love. And how a war and politics brings them together. Don't be tempted to watch the movie, read the book instead first. Take a ride in the boat of her talents and the waters of her gifts, and explore Nigeria on the flag that rises but never fully sets.

Reviewed by on

If you into African literature, this book should be on your top 10 of books to read. No professional reader will take you seriously. It is one of those books that will be remembered long after we die. When you done reading this book you feel as though Tsitsi just kidnapped you and left you for dead, revived you and let you live. Yes that is how her writing will make you feel. This book has no beggining and no end. Yep. Thats why I personally will not read the sequel of Nervous conditions, she wrote such a incredible book, that reading more of where she left of, will just be spoiling this epic feeling she left you with.

Robin Williams best work!

Reviewed by on

My lasting memory of Robin Williams will always be this movie. When I hear his name I hear gooooooooooood morning Vietnam! Good Morning Vietnam is a humorous story of a military DJ showing his middle finger to the establishment while stationed in Saigon during the Vietnam conflict. From what we read about Robin Williams and his love to improvise in his roles you may be forgiven for thinking that the director just pointed his finger at Robin and, yelled "Go!" and filmed his antics until the film ran out. A must see movie!

Noviolet has really potrayed a good picture of Rhodesia and African immagration to different countries and what issues and triumphs arise form them leaving they homeland. She writes some good poetry incorporated in the story, if you a true reader you will pick it up. If you South African, you will also notice that Zimbabwe and us have alot in common, they language and food sre very simalar to our own, its hard not to read this book and not want to take a road trip to Zim.

Amazing value for money

Reviewed by on

Received the product yesterday, and the value for money is remarkable. The included cables double as charging cables as well connecting to the Xbox One to update the controller's firmware, as well as a decently long connection to your PC to use as a wired controller. I have not tested the battery life yet, will update as I use the product more.
