Sid Meier's Civilization V PC Game
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

5 out of 5 eggs Great Game 07/11/2012

This review is from: Sid Meier's Civilization V PC Game

Pros: I don't know what to say. It's just like civilization with better graphics. The non stacking of combat units and longer production times give battles a much more strategic feel, more so than just mass units and attack.
I am not sure why so many people have problems with steam, I can only assume that they do not have proper updates on their computer. I have steam on 3 different Windows 7 machines and have had it on several XP systems since 2004. I have never had a problem other than if you are playing without internet, in which case I think offline mode would only work for up to a week before needing to reconnect.

Cons: Have not run into any problems. I do miss espionage, but this can be obtained in the new expansion.

Other Thoughts: People claiming steam is the worst client out there obviously have never tried to play a game on Origin.

Diablo III PC / Mac Game
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Diabolic Abomination 07/11/2012

This review is from: Diablo III PC / Mac Game

Pros: It's Diablo, story continues from D2 and is well written. You can actually make real money on the AH. Set's seem more desirable than Diablo2 and have increased rarity.

Cons: Gameplay is horrible compared to D2. It feels like I'm playing WoW with nothing but a mouse. Using a seperate movement key makes it easier to avoid mess on the ground without clicking an enemy and attacking while standing in it, but this destroys the feel of Diablo. The lack of distributable stats, truly unique legendary items, lack of good usable end game skills, and low amount of randomization to maps give the game a very linear feel in which almost all endgame builds for each class end up using the same skills. Most legendaries if not all of them are worthless now that the attack speed has been nerfed.
I have seen most of these complaints on every review I've seen of this game. One that I do not see and bothered my terribly about this game is they capped the max level at 60, a break from D1/D2, and made an MMO style endgame. With no constantly released patches or new content this basically means there is no end game. In diablo 2 it took a huge amount of time to reach max level.

Other Thoughts: The only real benefit to this game is I was able to recoup the money I paid for it through the RMAH. If you want a game for about 20 hours of fun buy it the first play through is fairly fun.
If you are expecting a game like Diablo 2 which you will pick back up after a decade and get another 20+ hours of fun out of, don't bother this game is already dead.

5 out of 5 eggs It's a big mouse pad 07/10/2012

This review is from: Cyborg COV4380500A1/06/1 PC G.L.I.D.E.7 Gaming Surface

Pros: Got this is a combo with the RAT 7 Infection. Makes a good large surface for your mouse. Interesting, but not overpowering artwork on it.

Cons: It wasn't free. 10 years ago I would have come home with 30 mouse pads after visiting a trade show, now everyone just give flash drives it seems. They were never this nice though in all fairness. Takes a little while to lay flat too after unrolling it out of the package.

Other Thoughts: After playing on smaller mouse pads and desk surface for years I can't believe I didn't spring for one of these earlier. No PC FPS gamer should be without something like this.
