A brilliantly-made modern-day Frankenstein tale in which a young neuroscientist genius (Steve Sandvoss) finds a way of resurrecting his dead girlfriend by sacrificing innocent lives. I really love this movie. TWO THUMBS UP!

Great Value for money enclosure.

Reviewed by on

I'll admit, I was very hesitant to buy this enclosure. All the online reviews I read said it was flimsy and loud. However I found that the fan is pretty quiet on the lowest setting and there isn't much need for the speed to be increased but when you do there is a tangible difference in the cooling on the drives.

Can confirm that despite the maximum storage capacity being listed as 16TB(4X4TB) it does however happily accept 24TB(4x6TB). My only complaint about this enclosure is that it only accepts drives from the top down, so if you only have one drive you have to install it in the top bay which can make it a bit top heavy. As long as you have more than one drive in at a time, you won't even notice this. eSATA and USB3.0 both give you good read/write speeds, although transferring data between the drives isn't as fast as doing it on a PC.

Overall this is a great value for money enclosure and in terms of cost per TB, the cheapest enclosure you can get at the moment. The ease of installation and overall looks are a bonus.

Perfect HD monitor!

Reviewed by on

I bought this monitor mainly to edit video and photos with Photoshop and Premiere Pro. As a HD monitor, its a perfect size for editing.

For browsing or web developing, it's probably better to go for a higher resolution monitor for sharper text.

I don't do gaming, so I can't comment on the lag.
I also like the colour on the monitor and the Matte screen.
No dead pixels and it arrived in perfect condition.

Plenty of new options and ideas for your Pathfinder games

Reviewed by on

Pathfinder Unchained presents a variety of alternative systems for existing rules. It’s probably as close as we’ll get to a new edition of Pathfinder for the foreseeable future, but it goes a long way towards improving or changing things that may have bothered game masters or players.

Read my full review on:
http://triangularroom.com/2015/05/29/review-pathfinder-unchained/

All in all, Pathfinder Unchained is a fantastic book, assuming you are interested in what it has to offer. As a game master, this feels like the book I’ve been waiting for, as it is filled with heaps of ideas for improving or changing my games. The revised action economy and simplified monster creation system are highlights for me. Players may not find as much value, as there isn’t much directly for players beyond the updated monk, barbarian, rogue and summoner classes.

Well made and entertaining.

Reviewed by on

I came close to giving the movie four stars and if this was a rating out of a hundred, I would give it 79.
I knew nothing about the movie when I bought it and I actually expected the 'Affliction" to be something else to what it actually turned out to be. And I was pleasantly surprised.

I was also shocked to hear that they made the movie on a $300K budget. That is impressive. The visual effects are very well made for such a small budget. Especially the parts where you get a first person look of the main character being chased and shot at.

As a regular Amazon shopper I know to be weary of low budget movies getting good reviews, but the two guys who wrote and directed this movie really did a good job. They bring an interesting and entertaining take on a popular genre.

Girl on the Train - one of the best thrillers of 2015 so far!

Reviewed by on

To read my full review, you can visit my blog here: http://bookfairyhaven.blogspot.com/2015/05/mini-book-review-girl-on-train-by-paula.html

The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins is not just a book about secrets in the dark, but it's also a cautionary tale of what happens when lines between reality and illusion are blurred and already volatile situations are misconstrued, misinterpreted and taken apart before justice has even been properly invited to the party.

It’s a book that speaks to us about treading carefully with information, because what you think you see, is often not always what it actually is, and it’s a message (whether intentional or not) that is especially relevant in today’s society, where we’re so quick to judge and assume things about others – especially with the ease that social media networks allow us to.

Go out and get this book – it’s a corker of a read.

The movie is remarkable. Benedict Cumberbatch was truly amazing and deserved his Oscar nomination for his portrayal of unsung hero Alan Turing. Turing was the mathematician who solved the German Enigma code and as result probably saved millions of lives by helping to end the war sooner.

The movie also deals with Turing's personal demons during a period where homosexuality was considered a crime. Benedict gives a credible performance as the suffering hero. Well worth a watch.

Flexibility and G-sync

Reviewed by on

My time with this monitor was brief but rewarding. If you want a non-gsync equivalent the XL2420Z is what your looking for with the flicker free, fast refresh and full HD. Unlike other g-sync monitors this is a hybrid that allows for DVI and HDMI inputs on the classic side with its own settings and the gsync side with DisplayPort.

This is the perfect entry point if you want to experience g-sync at 1920x1080.

But if you are looking for the best gaming monitor at present you are looking at the Acer XB270HU at twice the price.

Zalman ZM-K500 Mechanical Keyboard

Reviewed by on

The Zalman ZM-K 500 is a 10-less-key true mechanical keyboard using Kaihl Red switches. kaihl Red are perfect clones of the Cherry MX Red switches made in Germany although are made in mainland China. However, quality is exceptional and can't be faulted. The key stroke, as with Cherry red is non-tactile, non-clicky, linear and soundless unless it bottoms out. Actuation force is 45g and actuation takes place at about 40% depression. The short version is, if you have only ever used non-mechanical boards (i.e. cheaper / giveaway membrane/rubber dome type boards) then you are in for a luxurious and exciting experience. Typing is way faster, more effortless and accurate - as well as making a delightful sound that only mechanical users are used to. Bear in mind, key switches such as these will last 50m key strokes unlike their membrane cousins which are good for about 1m. Keys are removable for closer cleaning and the board itself is solid feeling and reassuringly heavy. Programming of keys for various functions is possible with directions from the Zalman website. Excellent value and an affordable entry into the world of mechanical precision keyboards without the price-tag of a Das, Unicomp, Ducky, Cooler Master or Rosewill.

Caitlin Yummers Thompson

Reviewed by on

Remember that girl Madison on 90210? The one Naomi tried to get compromising pictures of with a shirtless Backstreet Boy? Spiking her lemonade at the aquarium bachelorette party? She went, “This lemonade is so yummers!”... Researching Caitlin Thompson tonight on IMDb, learned of this movie, and downloaded the trailer immediately from VuClip. So, I haven't seen the movie, it's out of stock here at Raru tonight, 2015/04/10, 8:36:22 PM, but added to my WishList. You obviously cannot go wrong with the exciting premise of uncovering a net of teenage prostitution in what was clearly also inspired by 90210, as Caitlin apoeared during a similar story arc, even if it wasn't related to her character. Feast your eyes on the trailer and the enticing box cover, and you'll sign up along with me for this one from Raru. Further attraction includes Jamie SAVANNAH Luner as the protective concerned mother in this suspenseful drama. Haven't seen SAVANNAH? Poor you. But she was also Lexi Sterling in MELROSE PLACE. Admittedly, that was years ago, but I was glad to see tonight that she took great care of herself and is still a hot chick. So, okay, I've just seen the trailer, but this looks hot, and Caitlin is a very, very pretty young actress, so I'm all excited about this. Purchased planned as soon as it is available, and then I'll post a real review.

Fantastic!

Reviewed by on

Rockstar's latest entry into the Grand Theft Auto series is simply amazing! The features a massive map, an extremely fun, entertaining and fulfilling storyline of about 30 hours and graphics that are literally out of this world. Plus, there's always something to do in Rockstar's HD rendition of Los Santos thanks to the game's side missions such as strangers and finding missing items.
Although there were a few hiccups regarding GTA Online when the title launched, looking at what it has become now, that can easily be excused.

Don't even get me started with Heists. The new online mode is super fun!! Played with 4 friends who are always in contact and have everything planned makes the experience even better.

The Battlefield series has been known for its awesome military themed shooters. Even though the games have never had the best story, they've always had amazing multiplayer!
Visceral Games' attempt at a Battlefield maintains what Battlefield is known for, except the police themed spin-off's story is a bit better with funny scripts and characters who are a bit interesting.

Colossal Order - the name is fitting

Reviewed by on

If you’ve longed for another great city builder, or just want to try one for the first time, I highly recommended Cities Skylines. Colossal Order (the developers) are a better Maxis than Maxis have been for the past 10 years. They really have pulled of a colossal order with this game.

Skylines is a proper 'old school' city builder. It will make you forget that SimCity 2013 ever happened. As is the tradition, you start with an empty piece of land and a set of tools at your disposal. Primarily, the goal is to build a city and grow it as big as you can. You have a single highway connection to start with, which acts as the first (hopefully) of many entrances into your city. Build some roads, and you’ll see that you get groups of tiles extending from the side of them. These tiles can be filled with either residential, commercial, and industrial zones.

Don't even get me started on the mods. The game has been out for a week, and there's already 13000 mods available on the Steam workshop. From gameplay improvements to new models, there's just so much choice, it's overwhelming.

Buy this game, it's fantastic!

A cheap yet effective mobile soundcard for VOIP, Streamers, video chatters etc.

Reviewed by on

Lets get this straight, this usb audio card is not going to make your music etc sound instantly better.
This device is designed for the individual that only has a combined mic/headphone jack on their laptop or other usb capable mobile device, and wishes to split the two signals for various reasons.

The positives of this device:
This device will move audio processing from your on-board solution to the usb device.
What does this mean?
Well if you have ever experienced popping sounds, or white noise (static) that should not otherwise be in your music, movies etc. then this usb audio card should, and in most cases will stop that. Unless your environment is prone to Electromagnetic Interference (EMI).
How?
By removing digital to analog signal processing outside of your PC or laptop EMI waves, highly present inside of computers, due to motherboards and other electronics creating EMI.
This is the main reason why audio professionals make use of usb or optical linked external audio devices to convert digital to analogue signals.

So is this a audio game changer.
No.
Is this external audio card going to solve EMI issues.
Yes.
Is the audio processing better than your on-board solution.
Unless you have an incredible high end gaming or audio focused laptop. However in the case of most laptops, the simple fact that this will stop EMI, in my books already makes it better than your on-board solution.

Find out why this is still rated as one of the best games known to mankind!

Reviewed by on

This game has received universally high review scores and when you play it you'll realize why.
Firstly the game looks absolutely gorgeous! Nintendo squeezed every last bit out of the Wii here. Not only does it look great, it runs consistently smoothly and proves that the Wii is more than capable, despite being the runt of the 7th console generation pack.
As usual, Mario must rescue the kidnapped Princess Peach. But we don't play Mario games for the story, do we?
What makes this game great is that the levels are expertly designed and the controls are tight. (This is something that all game makers can learn from Nintendo!).
Each level is presented as a planet and the variety of styles is amazing.
The game's music is fully orchestral and stands out as one of the best game soundtracks EVER.

Super Mario Galaxy is a reason to own a Wii. Buy it today!!

One of the best games I've ever played!

Reviewed by on

This is the first Legend of Zelda game I ever played and it blew me away!
The game may pale a bit by today's standards, but it is a towering achievement for its time and remains one of the greatest games ever. Most Zelda fans prefer the GameCube version, but I prefer the Wii version because I love the Wiimote.
You start as Link the farm boy, but the story takes you on an epic adventure to save princess Zelda and the land of Hyrule from the dark forces. Speaking of dark forces, this is possibly the darkest Zelda game, with some really dramatic, gloomy sections.

As you progress from the farm, the game gradually teaches you new moves and skills. You'll also unlock great new weapons and you will need those new skills and weapons in each new dungeon.
The dungeons are very well designed, testing your puzzle solving skills as much as your reflexes.

There is so much to do in this game, including riding, fishing, swimming, flying, snowboarding, boating, fighting, shooting, hunting, gambling, exploring, climbing, diving and even more!
The end of each dungeon has a great boss to fight and these boss fights are memorable.

You have a little imp Midna who will not only give you hints, but is also a demon in combat!
The outstanding feature of this Zelda game is that Link gets turned into a wolf from time to time and later you can switch at will. New skills, exploration and combat as a wolf adds an interesting facet to the game.

I highly recommend this game to action adventure fans.
The only reservation is that it's for old-school adventurers, because the game features text instead of voice, which will put off most modern adventurers.
Still, there's a lot of fun to be had here and the graphics are very good.

Fantastic for Robbie Williams fans

Reviewed by on

My wife and I are HUGE RW fans and we love karaoke games, too. So this game checks all the boxes for us.
It's basically a karaoke game for up to 2 players (with a mic each).
The game itself is competent, with only a few modes and one or two extra songs to unlock.
That said, it all works very well, with even Mr. Williams himself providing feedback after a good performance.
What makes the game outstanding is that the music is GREAT and it features the original music videos.

Now Robbie Williams music videos have consistently high production values, though be warned that some are not suitable for children!

Overall, we love this game!!

This game simply nails motion controls!

Reviewed by on

Wii Sports Resort is the game I've played most, having played for over 50 hours to date. So it's a game that you can literally enjoy for years!
Firstly note that MotionPlus (the gyroscopic addition to the Wiimote) is mandatory for this game. In fact, Sports Resort was Nintendo's showcase of MotionPlus.
The game consists of 12 sports, ranging from water sports to combat sports and even aerial sports. Golf and bowling return from Wii Sports and table tennis replaces tennis.
Now not all the sports are winners, but they are all very playable and they demonstrate the ease and accuracy of motion controls enhanced by MotionPlus.
For a real challenge, my favourite sport is canoeing.
The firm family favourite is the swordfighting. Two player makes a great duel!
Speaking of multiplayer, only the canoeing allows for 4 players, with the rest being restricted to 1-2 players. So think twice before investing in 4 MotionPluses (or 4 Wiimote Pluses).
The sport I still play weekly is the table tennis, which allows an amazing amount of control over the ball. In all the sports, the computer opponents get gradually more challenging.
Overall, I highly recommend Wii Sports Resort!
