5 out of 5 eggs Well worth the price! 02/09/2013

This review is from: Borderlands PlayStation 3

Pros: Diablo-style weapon generator, post-apocalyptic setting. Surprisingly good use of the Unreal Engine.

Cons: Kinda glitchy though rarely unplayable. Bad guys are kinda repetitive, though there is surprisingly a good amount of variations of them (like the weapon generator) but you don't really notice much change unless you're paying attention. Rarely use any tactics other than charge and shoot

Other Thoughts: I found this game to be extremely fun, and entertaining. It could have had a few more classes and a little more variations in the guns, but it's their first attempt. As to people saying it's a ripoff of Fallout.. they're just seeing the fact that the story talks about "a Vault" and it's set in a post-apocalyptic-like setting... however the vault is NOT like fallout, and it's a desert planet, not post-apocalypse. It has gameplay a bit like RAGE, which IS similar to Fallout3+, but the controls are much more like Call of Duty.

The actual mechanics of the game are very Diablo like... random generators, a skill tree based on your class with 1 skill every level. Could have used more skills.

The 2-player rules are VERY nice. All players get equal money (not split), and almost equal experience (100%/95%) so you wont find it too hard to stay in the same level despite how you divide your duties.

After you beat it, you can play a second time through (to get to the level max) so if you plan to do it, may I suggest skipping some of the side missions and hurrying through your first pass.

3 out of 5 eggs worth the low price, but wont dazzle you 02/09/2013

This review is from: Coby 1.8" Blue 4GB Video MP3 Player MP620

Pros: plays music, and radio. Hold (keylock) feature. works more or less as implied. Simple interface. regular mini USBb port. And fairly cheap as I got this for about $20

Cons: NO SHUFFLE...seriously? such a small thing, but the cause of removing a single egg all by itself. Headphones blew in the first 3 days; cheap with a short cord. Plastic is fairly weak, i feel like the buttons are gonna break at any time but they seem to be working just fine.

Other Thoughts: Most of this thing feels really cheap and brittle in your hand, however the screen feels surprisingly solid. I didn't even know notice it had a radio function until writing this review. I'm listening to it now and its got fairly good reception. haven't watched any video yet, but seems like it would do ok with video in standard def. maybe cheap anime or cartoons
The lack of a shuffle SEVERELY sucks... but you can have playlists.

Pros: screwless drive bays, lights

Cons: bent side panels, front port USB cord

Other Thoughts: 1st... Who he heck thought t would be smart to have the front USB3 ports be powered by.. a USB PLUG?! So, no, I can't have this thing up to my motherboard.. with has a USB3 header, it runs out my coolant hole and plugs into the back. LAME.
Also the side panels are warped. they don't like to go on unless the computer is laying FLAT. this is why I deducted 1 egg.

Beyond these little things, this is a nice case. lots of room without being a gargantuan machine. The screwless tech used for the 5.25 drive bay was new to me. nice and simple, but you still must take off both side panels to install anything. meh. The HHD bays on the bottom are amazing and i love the way you can completely remove the middle piece. I did that for less interference from my GPU.
