A guide by John Tre

Products sampled from this guide:
Games and books are what I'm into most. Fable 2 Platinum Hits -Xbox 360 is a good game. The original story, Fable II, was intense but not long enough. The customization was okay in the original edition, better with the later editions. Now with the extras, there are a few more hours of gameplay and better customization. Get the plantinum hits edition if you want more than just the original story.

The graphics are pretty good in Star Trek Online - PC, a lot better than most MMO's out there. It has dynamic gameplay, get to explore unknown species/planets, ground missions, and space missions. The PvP is more like an added bonus to the game, not really a major highlight. It has huge potential, and hopefully gets more content. Right now at release time, I'm mixed about it, but it is fun to play.

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare Game of the Year Edition - PC is superior to Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 - Xbox 360 in every aspect. It is a game you must have in your collection, the sound, visuals, controls, game play are all top notch. The only letdown with this game is that you can finish the campaign in a matter of a few hours (4 - 5 most times), so there was something to be desired there. The online play is the best part, at least it used to be but tapering off now.

In books, my fave of the moment is The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches (Signature Illustrated Edition, Keeper Martin's Tales Book 1). The books follow Vilmos, Adrina and Seth. Vilmos Tabborath finds out magic isn't really evil and there's more to life than his home village, and not only that, but his father and mother aren't who he thinks they are. Adrina Alder finds out life beyond the palace isn't as great as she imagined and the world is dangerous. Seth leaves his life serving queen mother and is betrayed. The changing views make it more exciting and it has more action than most.

The story continues with The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches II (Signature Illustrated Edition, Keeper Martin's Tales Book 2), The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches III (Signature Illustrated Edition, Keeper Martin's Tales Book 3), and The Kingdoms and the Elves of the Reaches IV (Signature Illustrated Edition, Keeper Martin's Tales Book 4).
