Only if you like Mahler 2 slow...

Reviewed by on

This BIS recording is a let down in sound quality. It simply fails to exploit the benefits that a SACD has to offer.

From a sound engineer perspective I fail to understand why the left speaker is slightly louder than the right speaker ? Technically it might be correct but it simply does not sound correct in a domestic environment.

Sonically the recording lacks the immediacy of a closer miked recording. The tempo is deathly slow and lacks the explosive dynamics one expects with a resurrection. The much older Mahler 2 Solti recording is much more enjoyable.

Sadly this is the first and last Osmo Vanska recording I will buy.

It's Letter Time!

Reviewed by on

Love Letter is a classic game that can be played fully for around 20 minutes or you and some friends can grab the 16 card deck and have a quick one-shot round. It's portable and has high replay value, even if it may not look that way.

The Adventure time set offers unique art design for each of the characters, non-repeating art on all except the Guard cards. There's also two new rules that can make winning more fun. These rules effect the Hero cards and the Companion cards.

It's important to not this is the box version, there is no carry bag included.

Reviewed by on

This is my introduction to the munchkin series, while it doesn't contain the board or characters that come with the delux edition, this is a great game to play.

Take note that you should carefully go through the rules, it's a double sided A3 page worth. While they aren't too complicated it will take a few games to remember them.

Kick down the door, cast your spells and curses and 10 points to Gryfindor!

Enjoy JRGP? Best Switch Game Ever!

Reviewed by on

After sinking well over 300-hours into Xenoblade Chronicles 2 (also a Switch title) it was a must to play Xenoblade Chronicles 2: Torna the Golden Country. It was marketed as ''DLC" but it is in fact a stand-alone dedicated game that allows you to easily sink the same amount of time into to that of XC2!

Arguably one of my favorite JRPG games from this generation!

Super fun local Co-Op!

Reviewed by on

If you enjoyed the original MUA you are going to absolutely love this! Amazing story elements but don't expect seriously deep game dynamics, it's a hack-and-slash at it's core.

Ordered 2x copies, one for me and the other for my son, and this game plays so well from start to finish in local multiplayer co-op.

There is something like 32x playable heroes to unlock with more coming in DLC. Completed the story over a weekend binge session. Replay-ability is really great as there is a ton of additional cosmetics and features to unlock from after the story. Addition of 'Rifts' was a great idea as it also expands on the non-story components of game-play.

Raru fulfilled this order on-time with a lovely quirky comment on the packaging along the lines of "save the world, twice'' referring to ordering two copies which I suppose is not usual. =^.^=

Reviewed by on

DQB2 is an incredibly rewarding experience feature packed with a great balance of story and sandbox elements.

The only disappointment that I have to share is that I purchased 2x copies, one for my son and the other for myself, with the intention of playing Local Multiplayer Co-Op as advertised by Square Enix. Whilst this feature does indeed exist it requires between 10 to 20 hours of game time investment in order to unlock the 'Multi-Builder Mode' feature. You have to basically complete the whole first Chapter to gain access to this.

Other than this minor gripe there isn't a single other negative element that I can complain about!

Raru were great, per-ordered my copies and it actually arrived a few days before the official Shipment Date!

Now THIS is a GAME!

Reviewed by on

If you ever wanted a boardgame that has it all - Then this is IT!

This game may be quite Pricey, BUT...
If ever you wanted to live out your dreams of going into space, conquering planets, building fleets and/or trading with other alien races: then this game is for YOU!

WARNING! This game takes easily 6-8 hours to play, maybe more with 6 players so take a day off, have food & drinks ready and maybe take a break every 2 hours or so.
If you cannot concentrate for a few hours or don't want to play games that take this long, then this game might not be for you (but you will be missing out on a Great game).

The box is massive and has a ton of good quality components (I suggest sleeving your cards immediately when you receive the game so they can last longer - You definitely DON'T want to buy this game again!) and the tray is compact and well presented with space for each component. If you like you can even paint each (100+) miniature (I'm painting mine!) to make your game look even better!

Learning the rules can be a pain & it took me a whole day to go through the rulebook and 3x youtube videos to see how it's played. The rulebook is well written and will answer most questions and clarify most problems you may encounter during the course of a game. If you don't like learning rules before playing or reading them, then have a bookworm/studious type of friend do it and let him/her teach you as you play. Believe me: THIS GAME IS COMPLICATED! But I can promise you, learning this game's rules is worth it! And once you know the rules, You will have a blast!

In TI4 You pick one of 17 space-faring factions, each with different looks & abilities, some with no technology and some with a starting technology or two.
TI4 is a 3-6 player game in which you build your own map according to the amount of players and your home-planets depend on the race you pick.
You mostly use cards and tokens for your actions in a turn, space ship figurines to move around on the map and roll a dice or more when fighting another player for territory.

There is a planet in the middle of your map/galaxy called Megatol Rex that needs to be conquered that will allow you to rule over the galaxy if you play your cards right. And once it's conquered it will add a new political mechanic that will be implemented from then on, adding even more interesting things that happen each turn during the course of the game. New laws may be implemented that can affect the entire galaxy and change how other players might change their game-play to a new direction (e.g. a peaceful player suddenly starting to conquer new planets from other players)
Each planet you own has its own card, description & flavour text.

In this game there are certain objectives that need to be obtained, public objectives such as conquering 4 planets of the same kind and maximum 3 secret objectives that you only reveal to others when you have completed it. These objectives will give you victory points and the first to obtain 10 or 14 (depending on your choice at the beginning of the game) victory points will win the game.

The way you play is entirely up to you - You can trade with others, upgrade your technology & your ships, conquer as many planets as you like, fight with as many other players as you like or make as many alliances as you like.
This game may however suddenly change at any moment as your favourite ally & trading partner may turn against you without warning, simply so s/he can accomplish a secret objective you don't know about!

Every turn certain strategy cards (of which there are 8) are picked by players and then implemented in a specific order (they determine the play order or initiative of each player depending on what you pick) as an action during a round.
Each of these strategy cards will allow the player who plays them a specific (Primary) action and after that other players may also pay for and act upon the secondary action of that strategy card. Even the timing of when these cards are played is important and can mean victory or defeat as I have discovered in my very 1st game (luckily I won that time)
There are also actions you can take that are not using these strategy cards, such as taking over an adjacent system and its planets. So it is VERY important to know when to do what and that makes the game so enjoyable, to see your plan come to ruin (or glorious fruition) when another player made a move just 1 turn too soon or just 1 turn too late for you to act upon.

So far I have played this game with 3 players and it was incredible. You can't concentrate only on what you're doing, you MUST keep an eye on what other players are doing in their own turns too or you might get into a LOT of trouble or miss a great opportunity. And combat can be excruciatingly tense as you see 1 little heroic defender beat 4 attackers trying to take over a planet.

You can even bargain with other players and make a temporary truce, asking them not to attack this turn if you do this or that for them and vice versa. You can literally do ANYTHING you feel like in this game. And the freedom of choice makes this game different and enjoyable EVERY time (especially when playing with different players too).

Recommended?
Maybe not for people who are new to the boardgame genre (due to it being very complicated and taking a long time to play), rather let them play Forbidden Island, Ticket to Ride or Pandemic - but for people who love boardgames?

Definitely!!!
Absolutely!

Best Media Player

Reviewed by on

Good All

I can recommend this media player, as the best Netflix and Google supported player for the following reasons:
1. Easy to use
2. Great user interface
3. Easy to setup and integrates with Google Assistant and Google Home.
4. So far, I have not experienced any buffering with the streaming experience on Netflix, Google and Youtube. These services are obviously, optimized to run well on the Ematic media player, but the fact that it optimizes the Lenox media player app, for my Expedite.tv streaming, is just brilliant.

Please don't waste your money on other non-supported media players, this just works!
