Frozen Fever

2.0 out of 5 stars Kids will love it, parents will despise it., June 30, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Frozen Fever (Amazon Video)
A distracting affair for kids, but reused assets, minimal effort songwriting and contrived plot make this an absolute non recommendation outside of collectors. Some of the worst script and songwriting from Disney, and an effort to keep pushing Frozen merchandise for the foreseeable future. This movie is a complete waste next to other short disney films such as Toy Story Time Forgot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Radiohead does it again, June 30, 2016
Excellent mellow album by Radiohead and vastly superior to their previous album. Not overly electronic like the previous and not a bit messy in the slightest. Every song sounds produced expertly and every instrument, and sound is absolutely intentional, nothing feels overbearing. The tone of the album is a bit on the darker side of Radiohead's catalog, but absolutely no song on this album is filler, and there's brilliance on every track, and brilliance throughout for some tracks. An absolute recommendation for one of the best alternative rock albums of 2016, so far and likely a grammy contender without exaggeration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally worth it for the price, January 12, 2016

This review is from: Steam Link (Video Game)
Had huge issues at release and even mainstream release, On a wired network to a wireless PC, the connection is now flawless, coupled with a steam controller the interface for big picture mode and a capable PC, this is absolutely the most cost effective streaming option. It admittedly still has faults, but they are very much negligible at this price point.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good game ruined by bad DLC practices, January 12, 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A good game with good mechanics, and a microscopic community. The DLC model for this game drove players away, and the servers are ghost towns, but what I was able to play was enjoyable, and could easily draw a crowd if the price was constantly 10-15 dollars, or even free-to-play.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great controller for people who like tinkering, November 23, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Steam Controller (Video Game)
So this thing arrived a few days ago, and I've only put in a few hours like 6-8 hours, and it runs great. The packaging is acceptabel and the included contents are basically essentials, aside from considering ordering some rechargeable batteries, this package includes exactly what is necessary for use. The gamepad itself has been getting a lot of flack for "feeling cheap", but once batteries are in it, this thing is actually quite hefty, somewhere between the Xbone and PS4 controller. The button placements for the "ABXY" take some getting used to, as do the input options, which are literally the best remapping around. The Touchpads will take some tinkering, I found the light haptic feedback too dull and turned it up to high, which made it feel great.

As far as performance goes, it connected to Steam Big Picture, updated firmware for about a minute and then it was running fine, no random crashes or disconnects. The big picture interface with this controller makes 100% sense, it's already at about 80% with an X360 controller, but it really opens up how much design was considered for big picture with this controller in mind. Performance in most titles was hit or miss depending on whether there was generic drivers or custom made button mapping, but this feature can only be expected to grow as more users experiment with button layouts. Borderlands 2 had a great layout that seemed to compensate for the face buttons being a little hard to get used to by mapping some of the core buttons to the paddle son the back. CSGO was playable, but I wouldn't recommend it, and Portal 2 was great. Dark Souls 2 surprisingly worked fantastic, and Super Meat Boy had some strange inputs I had to re-map, but it was highly responsive and very much worthre-mapping.

The Steam Machine might be a hard sell for newcomers and old fans, but this controller should be taken into serious consideration, it's a 100% re-mappable input device that encourages community feedback and participation and with continued use and tinkering, I could easily see this becoming a staple in most PC builds, but for right now, it's a serious contender for a great controller, and the community and valve are probably gonna make this a worthwhile investment.

3.0 out of 5 stars A competent game that runs incompetently, November 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A perfectly competent game from a gameplay perspective, completely ruined by its performance. With an i7 4790K/GTX980/16GB DDR3 this game should run great at 1080p, but still struggles hard to maintain 60 fps, and even then there's artifacting and strange bugs, people falling out of the sky, into the ground. Black Flag was bad too, but at least playable, this one is borderline playable. It's a shame too since the modern sci-fi segments of the game where your character gets warped into some future dimension are some of the most interesting parts of the game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pay the price and you'll probably have them for life, November 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great sound quality without any level being overpowering, decent quality carry pouch, and extremely durable headphones. The amount of stress I have put on these would have killed the other headphones I've tried in much less time (Sony/Beats/Sol Republic/Skullcandy), and above all of that, these are still working and sound as good as the day I purchased them, I cannot recommend these enough for great sounding music.

4.0 out of 5 stars Story is bad, rest of game is great., November 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Everything the PC version aspired to be, and even though it receives updates much later than the PC version, it is still a great purchase. combat is fluid and fun, finding great loot is not impossible, gameplay is interactive. The story is the only bad part, resorting to being downright b-movie levels of bad, and it's a shame you have to rush your way through it to get to the real fun of the game, Adventure Mode.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great replacement for those of us stuck without the wordpad, November 15, 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Works exactly as advertised, with the backlight on the back being the only issue, it will randomally choose when to turn on or off, but will work regardless of the backlight.
