Great roll-and-write

Reviewed by on

This is the first game of this type that our group played. and so far we're pretty happy. The theme of being 1950s suburbs planners in the US of A might put some people off, but it's different and provides a change of pace. The components within the box are colorful, theme appropriate and well made, so it's a great one to have.

The roll-and-write mechanics mean it's perfect for a gaming group of any size as everyone moves simultaneously. It functions like an ever evolving puzzle, as each reveal of cards has a different potential resolution. While a competitive game, it's not aggressive or confrontational, so it helps keep a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. We found our play-time was twice as long as suggested on the box, but we were four players who'd never tried this before and needed to make frequent references to the rules.

In summary: something different thematically, works for groups of all sizes, play experience cerebral but relaxed, this game is perfect for those who prefer their games light on confrontation and aggression.

The game, but without the buttons

Reviewed by on

I unfortunately only received my copy of the book after I finished listening to the audio book. Non the less, If you played the game and you are not sure whether you want to read it or not, do. If you did not play the game, still read it, it's a good book.

Yes it covers everything that happened in the game, but there are bits in the book that are not discussed or showed in the game. Like the flashbacks Kratos had of how he ended up in Midgar. There also certain parts in the book that describe events better than the way it happened in the game. If you really want to fork out the extra cash, rather get the audio book as the reader is very entertaining and you will enjoy it (spoiler alert, Mimir reads the story) ;)

The Anniversary Collection is an investment

Reviewed by on

The only sucky thing about the anniversary collection is that you actually need all of the house editions to make it look cool. But apart from that, I personnaly think that The Prisoner of Azkaban has the best looking cover between the three books that have now been released.

If you can't decide on which house edition to get and you want the most beautiful one, go for Ravenclaw. Even though I got Gryffindorr, Ravenclaw looks better.

Just about what you would expect from a R288 Redragon

Reviewed by on

I bought it knowing it will be bad moving from sHox-s01 because I needed a Mic and I don't like the extended Mics, nub Mics are not visible when gaming which is cool. The cub foam om this headset is very dense and spongy in that if you put the headset on, you create a high air pressure pocket between the driver and your year, the foam seals the air in, making 1) the audio sound more hallow and 2) literally feel the pressure on your ear drums. To solve this, instead of "putting on" the headset, you can to "slide it on". The sound on this headset is so heavily bass boosted that it is actually funny, try listening to a car engine on this or a tank engine, you can barely make out any fine detail at all and just sounds like the speakers' cones are just flapping around. Stay away from this headset if you appreciate fine detail (even if just a little) in your audio.

Mess of a port

Reviewed by on

This game is full of bugs and glitches, when it works it's great but the slowdown to 15-20 FPS happens so often it just kills any immersion you may get.


The low framerate is practically the set standard in handheld mode that I don't even bother playing it that way anymore.


Shoddy port. don't hear the other versions play that much better outside the graphic tweaks

Quality game - fun for everyone (and also has solo mode)!

Reviewed by on

What a great game. Good quality components and lots of stuff (thick glossy cards, high gloss player boards, well designed and printed rule books, appendices and automa manual, containers provided for play pieces). I am seriously impressed. The game is easy to learn from the rules (and if not there are plenty of run throughs on line - Watch it played is a good one). My 10 and 12 year old picked up the game quickly and both thoroughly enjoy it - so has added another option for family boardgames. At the same time it has enough depth and complexity in the strategy to entertain the more experienced gamers too. It is with out doubt my favourite 'engine builder' board game ... but also has so much learning opportunity in regard to the details on the bird cards (although worth noting all N American birds) and their habitats. Will be great if future expansion does Southern African birds too!

My only gripe was the box was slightly dented in the delivery process which thankfully has not affected any components or game play at all.

A huge international box office success for South Africa

Reviewed by on

Filmed in and around the tourist resort of Sun City, this was a partly foreign funded sequel of sorts to the earlier Karate Olympia a.k.a. Kill & Kill Again with much the same cast playing essentially the same characters, if one forgets that James Ryan’s character in the first film was called ‘Steve Hunt’ and then called ‘Steve Chase’ in this one. Broad comedy and very well executed stunts and fight arranging are the order of the day and the one with the best lines is the late, pioneering South African actor Ken Gampu as the unfortunately named Gorilla, an ex-wrestler who cannot stand officious bosses, too tight shirts and engaged aircraft toilets. Another international box office success for South Africa which grossed enough money to find itself almost at the top of Variety’s box – office champions for 1981.

Audiophile sound on a budget... in a headphone

Reviewed by on

Don't be fooled by the Cooler Master branding. These are re-purposed Takstar Pro 82s, a much loved "budget" audiophile grade set of headphones, that have been tuned for the gaming market. The sound they deliver far exceeds their price. To the point where "bang for buck" almost feels disingenuous. Coupled with outstanding build quality and comfort, if you're undecided if these are for you, just pull the trigger. You won't be disappointed.

Pros:
- Sound that delivers strong, punchy bass.
- Detailed sound and imaging with a respectable sound stage.
- Light and extremely comfortable.
- Excellent, clear mic (rivaling the BoomPro) that is detachable (plus the headset runs to a four pole 3.5 connection so you can use these on your phone).
- Detachable cable so you can use it as a regular set of headphones with any length of aux.
- Integrated USB sound card that is inline with the cable that provides muting, volume controls and simulated 7.1 sound (that doesn't just sound like a tacked on reverb effect).
- Excellent sound isolation.
- Understated and sleek design. No RGB nonsense. So you can wear these in public without looking like a tool.

Cons:
- The bass can bleed into the mid-range robbing some sound detail.
- There's no side-tone. And because they isolate so well you do struggle to hear your own voice while while wearing these, so be sure you don't shout at your friends on Discord.
- While comfortable, the inner pads do sit against the ears. Some might find this off-putting.

In conclusion, gaming headsets have often been scoffed at by sound enthusiasts but Cooler Master did the right thing re-branding an already respected set of headphones. Eclipsing even my HyperX Clouds these are simply the best headphones out there.
