This review is from: Final Fantasy XIV: Realm Reborn PC Game
Pros: There're so many things I could list here from the visuals, the music, the jobs, the story... It's really a game you have to experience to understand how great it is. One thing that I think is huge is this - Yoshi P. and Square Enix are really in to this game. They are working very hard to give the players what they want and have been doing a very good job.
I would say this is the best MMO I've ever played. Of course, like any and everything, it's not for some people. But give it a try before judging it. You will most likely not be disappointed.
Cons: Nothing really. As far as I know, all of the bugs and hickups that were present at the launch have long since been fixed. I guess the only strike I can give the game is that levels 1 - 15 are slow paced action wise. Once you get past that point, provided you've stayed on top of your main story quests, it gets a LOT more fun. But even saying that's a "con" is just nitpicking.
Other Thoughts: People giving the game a bad rating because the launch was a total cluster - Every MMO's launch that I've been part of and heard about have been bad. SE gave people more free play time because of how bad the early access and official launch were so stop crying about it. They got it together in a reasonable amount of time and have kept it solid ever since. And yes, I was one of the many people that was locked out durning early access/launch.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN CNPS10X OPTIMA 120mm FSB (Fluid Shield Bearing) Shark's Fin Blade CPU Cooler
Pros: Oh my, where do I start? This is my first aftermarket cooler I've ever installed and it was a lot easier than I was expecting. Very quick and painless.
My temperatures have dropped by about 10 - 12 degrees. Idle, I'm sitting at 33/34, down from 42/43. Gaming (WoW, Deus Ex and others), I've gone from 56 - 58 down to 44/45.
The fan moves good air being a 120mm, plus it's super quiet. Primarily, the noise was my reason behind buying this cooler. My stock cooler was kicking in to high gear during gaming and the noise was bothersome.
I got this on a good deal. It had a $15 mail in rebate which would bring my total cost, after rebate, to $14.99. Worth the full $29.99 in my opinion, I would have been dumb to pass it up with that much of a rebate.
Cons: The only con I can give this is that I wouldn't be able to use all 4 of my memory slots. The one closest to the CPU would be in the way of this cooler. If I needed that slot, I'd have to buy some very low-profile RAM. That's a no issue for me, I'm running with two 4gig sticks.
Other Thoughts: Even for full price, I would highly recommend this cooler. Just keep in mind the size. I have a full tower and it fits fine. A mid tower should also hold it with no problems.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning Xbox 360 Game
Pros: The game looks good graphics wise and the world itself is very colorful. It's a nice world to just sit and admire. The controls are easy to learn and are not overly complicated by any means. The crafting system for gear, potions and gems is also very easy to pick up and understand. I haven't gotten very far in the game yet, only about 12 hours of game play, but I've really been enjoying it. My wife likes it too. :)
Cons: The camera can be a bit annoying at times. It tends to stay in one place during combat and won't really follow your character. It's not too big of a problem, just a bit gets annoying sometimes. Not a con so much, but the music and sound have to be turned down to roughly 50%, they over-shadow the voices of the characters. Also not really a con, just a bit of a let down. The characters hair looks out of place. It's more like a hard-hat than hair. With as nice as the rest of the game is, I think they could have done a bit better with the characters hair
Other Thoughts: So far, the game's been a lot of fun. Simple controls, very pretty world, good story and the side quests are a lot of fun. Worth picking it up for sure.READ FULL REVIEW
