2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, July 2, 2014
This review is from: Tomodachi Life (Video Game)
Gay marriage isn't a necessity for all types of games, but in a life simulation game, it should be expected. It's disappointing that Nintendo chose to ignore the fact that gay people exist and also play their games.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Bond film of the Daniel Craig series, arguably one of the best Bond films ever., November 28, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
By far the best Bond film in decades, even going back to Casino Royale...you can see how dated it feels in terms of cinematography, action and writing. This Bond film brings a memorable villain that's interesting (unlike Casino Royale) and seems to fit perfectly with the topic of the changing world of espionage in the 21st century.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tiny and inexpensive analog filter/delay synthesizer, November 26, 2012
Don't buy this if you are looking for something similar to the Monotron, Monotribe or Monotron Duo. The keyboard has a four octave range, making it basically useless for playing specific keys but that's not the point. Watch reviews on each individual monotron before you pick one, they all serve different purposes and this is by far my favorite.

This review is from: wipEout 2048 (Video Game)
The sound design in this game is possibly the most impressive aspect. The music, sound effects, and interface sounds completely immerse you in the experience. Visually, it is even beyond WipEout HD's ps3 visuals, the environments are filled with detail and the vehicles look amazing.

The long load times were addressed with the first update. Originally, the loading times ranged from 35-45 seconds, now they consistently last 30 seconds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not flawless, but easily one of my favorite games of the year., July 14, 2011
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars

Alice Madness Returns is a game that should be 12 hours but the developers stretched it out into a 20 hour adventure to make the game appear to be a better value. Because of this, there are monotonous stretches of the games that look and play far worse than the great set piece locations.

One example of this is the underwater level, it doesn't even look like you are underwater. They used a simple post process system to tint the screen blue, then they added fish and other undersea life but because it doesn't have the murkiness or realistic particles you would expect in other underwater levels. Another notable example of poor game design is the interior of the Hatter's Domain, the art direction gets thrown out the window for around 45 minutes and each room uses the same basic textures, models, etc... and in the Hatter's domain there are major collision problems and some key objects have really simplified collisions so it looks like alice is floating.
Despite these flaws, the story, soundtrack, art design, and core gameplay can easily make up for these drawbacks. If the game were shorter and more refined it would be more enjoyable but the mere promise of seeing another beautifully designed environment will carry anyone who appreciates Alice's excellent design through the experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Moby's classic sound returns, May 22, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Moby: Destroyed (Hardcover)
Unlike Wait For Me, Destroyed takes a lot of elements from his earlier releases. It manages to take the best parts of albums like Play, 18, and Everything is Wrong but manages to keep it's own distinct style.

My top 5 Tracks:
Lie Down in Darkness
Victoria Lucas
Rockets
Stella Maris
Sevastopol

5.0 out of 5 stars Royksopps greatest album since Melody A.M., April 16, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Senior (Audio CD)
Keep in mind this is only opinion, but if you liked Melody A.M. and were dissapointed with the poppier feel of their previous two albums, you will love senior. Its more introspective and dark than any of their previous albums. It focuses more on their talent as electronic producers, they were able to create something entirely unique. Its a hauntingly beautiful instrumental masterpiece..

Pros:
Some of their greatest tracks
No poppy vocals
The songs are long, yet remain interesting throughout
I keep coming back to this album, it never ceases to amaze
Cons
The first song (...And the Forest Began to Sing) and the last song (A Long, Long Way) dissapointed me.

Favorite Tracks:
The Alcoholic
The Fear
Tricky Two
Senior Living
Forsaken Cowboy
The Drug
Coming Home

Make sure you pick up their recent B-Side "Keyboard Milk" It is even better than most of the stuff on here

The ngp is going to fail just like the psp did, the 3ds has third party developer support. The initial launch title is a bit weak, but come june, the 3ds will have plenty of great games to entertain any user.,

If you like fighting games, or street fighter, buy this game. The 3d effects are minimal, which is a good thing because overly flashy 3d effects in street fighter would interfere with gameplay.
