3.0 out of 5 stars A Review from the World of Warcraft., May 11, 2015
Graphically a spectacular achievement as far as advancing the game. I played this game since vanilla, and as a whole the expansions were both good & bad. The Best being Wrath of the Lich King. The worst might be Mists of Pandaria. Opinions vary, but in this reviewers opinion, I'm much more angrier at Blizzard as a company. To play any expansion you must have the source material, the game that started it all, World of Warcraft. On top of that you pay a monthly subscription of 15 dollars a month, or $180 a year. Then if you want to play with 99% of the other players you must buy all the expansions, Starting with Burning Crusade, and ending at the moment with Warlords of Draenor. that's 5 expansions in all. I'm not going to play human calculator, but that's an awful amount of money for a point & click game. This review as a whole of the full game content, as opposed to just this expansion. In Vanilla you worked for everything. No mounts till level 40, Level 60 was the level cap. It's rather hard to break down what i liked and hated about each game / expansion. Each game evolved, and kept evolving until the game mutates into a unstoppable, addicting, quest hunting, and dungeon pugging nightmare. It's nice blizzard finally cashed in on the gold selling nightmare. Then makes everything so damn expensive. Prices shot up the economy in game. The game is no fun if you don't have enough gold. The WoW token is 20 dollars on top of the rest of the money you already paid. No discount for long term subscribers? If you can afford all of this, and more. If you can put up with the constant hounding, and stupidity of the Trade channel, If you don't mind repeating the same quest lines for each toon you make. If you Don't mind paying almost 12000 in game gold so you can fly too, then this is your game. Graphically stunning, rich soundtracks, fair PvP, and a lot of general changes with each patch. Remember with this game if the class is too good, Blizzard ends up nerfing it. It's become too much money for me, but if you want to purchase this game the manufacturer website offers deep discounts around the end of the year for some expansions, and source game. It's all in the eye of the beholder is it worth that much money? It's all in the eyes of each of us, and mine are now bloodshot.

2.0 out of 5 stars Let your dim light shine., March 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These are a joke. I was shocked to see how small they actually were. You need to turn @ least two of them on to get any sort of light. Flickering please!! The only flickering it does was to my wallet when i made this purchase. Easy to turn on, battery dies within 8 hours of use. As far as backup lighting, camping lighting, this serves as maybe the only practical uses. Went to target and paid less for a giant battery candle, that really works, and puts out decent faux candle light.

3.0 out of 5 stars Knicks need love too., March 10, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's time to be honest. It's cheap plastic, with a cut out overlay graphic on top. That said it looks great in my Fan Cave, and shows love to a team that desperately needs it to win a championship. Never put a battery in it.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
You Got to love HD clocks. Like most sports collectible purchases, I never use the Item. It hangs on my wall so gracefully, letting all who enter know where the loyalty lines drawn. I never had to validate whether it worked, or not, with a battery. For team spirit it works. It is solidly constructed from wood, and really stands out as more of a piece of art, rather then a clock.

1.0 out of 5 stars Slimmer, and it shows., December 9, 2014
This version of the PS3 is hands down the worst model ever. If your going to be cheap it's going to bite you in the butt. Here we have a model inferior in every way. 12g Flash Hard drive. This means there really is no Hard Drive for memory issues. It takes almost 8 to 10 gigs just for the software updates & patches, leaving you no memory. I chose this model only because I bought the 500gig Hard dive that I installed into the PS3 Making a more complete system.

It's loud, too loud. Playback with audio on some movies are terrible, even when amplified in stereo. I owned the 320 gig model and felt it was a much more solidly constructed, less jinky system. Jinky as in it sometimes gets too hot, and has mild power surges. The 500 gig hard drive models for this that come in several bundles, are far better overall systems. Still not close to the quality of the older versions. Slide top loading is terrible, almost to the point where it defies practicality.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Legend crumbles...., December 9, 2014
This is a bad remake of a bad game. to start with, Zelda series at it's height in CD-i was way better games. Not all Zelda's are inherently bad titles. The original Legend of Zelda for NES was a real solid game, as were the SNES versions, and N64 versions of the franchise.

The game play along with the story has been dumb ed down so that a child can play with ease. It's classic Nintendo taking what should be a next gen game, and reducing it to this frustrating, poorly animated title. Seriously it looks the same as the original version of this title, no upgraded Animation, story telling, and piss poor handling with the controller.

4.0 out of 5 stars Best Personal Massage of all time., December 8, 2014
Folks I have looked near & far for something that can tame my inner inhibitions. This product does exactly what it's supposed to do. I got this for a class project, but have found all kinds of uses around the house for it. It makes a delightful drink mixer. It's a back massage, It's Anger Management. It turned out to be my new best friend. I don't leave home without it. I named him Tim. I like to go to the park and use Tim to work out the kinks in my back. Seriously though this is a really good product. It changed my life. By two, buy Three, Give them as stocking stuffer s this Christmas Holiday.

1.0 out of 5 stars Tropical Freeze gets cold reception, December 8, 2014
It always boggled the mind why Nintendo don't have a plug n play reboot with NES games, or even a big library of old SNES games on a disc. Nintendo is in love with an era and pays it's respect to it by defecating all over the franchise. First off there is very little game story connection between games.

Even the best is not Rare, and this is what happens when you give the franchise to other developers. It get's muddled down, and twisted until you can barely recognize this as a Donkey Kong game. Bad game pad, makes for bad game experience. This is not taking a franchise to Next Gen status, This is Dumbing down the franchise from next gen to make it feel more like SNES.

Game play is unnecessarily complicated for what they bill as a child's game. Graphically it's all there, and it looks fresh, and vibrant. It's cool you can switch between Kongs. That is not enough to save this game.

3.0 out of 5 stars The Gaming Console that made your console possible., December 8, 2014
Take a Atari 2600 reboot add in 92 games built in, and you have.....
You have a surprisingly functional system that reminded me of the Atari I had in my youth. Plug n Play concept very, very cool. Once you have the wireless controller, and console properly aligned, it's smooth sailing. Also it's a nice added bonus if you have those old Atari accessories you can plug them into this reboot.

Let's talk games. I will not list all 92 of them. You got here a buffet of hits & misses. Centipede, A very nice version of Space Invaders, Yar's Adventure, Bowling. They did show signs of mercy by not including E.T.. They dropped the respect earned by this feat by not including the Coleco Donkey Kong, Pac-Man, Burgertime, Q-bert. Again it's hits & misses

If you were to add up all the hits to the misses you too will realize it's kind of heavy on the Miss side of things. Delights such as Adventure, circus Atari, and Golf. Keep in mind everyone's hit & miss list will vary. That's why I'm leaning heavy towards this said product, and highly recommend it to anyone who loves nostalgia gaming.

I found this at a department store for $40.00, and think it's worth every penny. It also includes a second joystick, and a whole bunch of 2 player games installed. It did what it was supposed to do, It took me back to my youth.

1.0 out of 5 stars Copy, Paste, Repeat. MK8 is DOA, November 27, 2014
Looking for the good times, and thrills that Mario Kart promised. Sadly if your a Wii fan, or a Wii U fan, this title will show you how close it comes to killing a franchise. From the start this title had Issues. No significant Multiplayer mode, No Map. The game play designed to make you scream. Ever been on a roller coaster? this game is kind of like that It takes you up, It takes you down, It makes you vomit. Don't get me wrong if this review was based on aesthetics and looks alone, it would get 5 stars.

Looks don't mean that much when it breaks down to game play. Take N64 Mario Kart 64 for example when the franchise was at it's best. It's the feel, the playability, the freshness aka new game feel for a reboot. With this title You get choppy impossible game play, mixed with equal parts frustration, and disappointment.

Really who cares that you made Rainbow Road epic, then made it just 1 lousy lap around? The karts which are supposed to be fully customizable, seem like your choice of the same crap, unless you pay for what should have been included in DLC form. Do you really call this innovation Nintendo? It seems to me to be a lot more like copy, and paste with really messed up game mechanics. Who cares about your flips, flying, and underwater graphics, if the game play is so off? I'll tell you who

The Millions, and Millions of kids out there, that became fans of the same things we had as children. Kids by far and large will like any franchise rip off game, just because it has there favorite Franchise player in it. This game has a lot of franchise players, so the money Nintendo will make will be substantial. Realistically if it was not for all the franchise players included in this game, I am quite certain this would have been what killed the franchise. After Mario Kart Wii this was the final nail in the coffin.
