This review is from: Rift PC Game
Pros: Rift is huge. Very much like World of Warcraft for play style and control, however, quite a different story! I will keep it simple and put the thoughts below.
-Huge world to explore
-Average to quick XP gain
-Easy to use interface
-Public groups for large fights or rifts (no more camping bosses!!!)
-Easy to find your way around
-GREAT graphics (no cartoons running around. Very realistic)
-A direct upgrade from World of Warcraft with many added things!
Cons: Pretty much no cons as the ones I would list will most likely be fixed as the game progresses.
-Even a level 10 mob will attack a level 50 and knock him off his mount... annoying but fixable.
-Rifts (much like opening events in WoW. They are world ongoing events) can pop up on top of you if you dont pay attention.
-Addons (made popular by WoW) are almost non existant at the moment. Will VERY likely be implemented as we progress.
Other Thoughts: I am a power gamer. I enjoy a game that is challenging and rift is no puppy dog. I have played: UO, DAoC, SWG, EQ, EQ2, LotRO, WoW, an many many other MMORPGs and "Rift" takes the cake.
I have been searching for a game that would hold my intereste well. Most of my time was spent on 3 of my favorite MMOs... Dark Age of Camelot, Star Wars Galaxies (til they ruined it), and World of Warcraft (because there wasn't much else.) When I started Rift, I was instantly thrilled with the gameplay, graphics, and everything about it! Plays MUCH like WoW does. (think WoW if you have any question and you will likely figure it out) The difference is that RIFT is REAL... not a bunch of cartoons running around on chickens.
If you are looking for a MMO to play that will be VERY popular in the future and enjoy a game much like WoW, this is the game for you... Put away your gnomish toys and come play with the big boys!
This review is from: Sceptre 46" 1080p 120Hz LCD HDTV X460BV-F120
Pros: Very sturdy, Bright and rich screen, easy to use remote (not clunky or cheap), Stand is actually strong unlike most. Recieved mine with 0 dead pixles and no problems. VERY easy to use and has an optical out as well as a USB in and 4 HDMI ports. A monkey could hook thing thing up to blueray, sattelite, and a 7.1 stereo then plug in an xbox 360 along with a few other game systems in 15 minutes or less.
Cons: Con's are difficult to write about on a good item. The one that stands out is the sound. You may want to get a nice speaker system to plug into (making sure it handles optical) Computer speaker systems are sufficient if you don't want theater sound.
Other Thoughts: I have owned this television for almost a year now and have not had one problem with it at all. Needless to say... all you out there spending 2,000$ on a nice big LCD are suckers!... even my neighbors are envious and we have the same size LCD... theirs was just 1200$ more and doesn't even have 4 HDMI ports or optical out.
I have this hooked up to DISH (HD), Xbox 360, blueray, and a media computer. NO problems and MANY fun nights of entertainment. Watch out companies... here comes Sceptre!
This review is from: Cyber Acoustics CVL-1066RB Black 3.5mm Connector Desktop Microphone
Pros: Budjet Mic. 10$ is not a lot to pay for a good mic on a budjet. From the 5$ cheapies to the 150$ studio mics, this is a great mic for ventrilo, online chatting, and anything else not involving quality. It has a mute switch directly on the front for easy muting.
Cons: This mic can be a bit tricky. It is very sturdy, but it takes someone with a bit of audio knowhow to get working properly. It isnt anything like a plug-n-play logitec, but on a budjet with some brains, one can use this just fine.
Other Thoughts: Honestly, I would just go over to the logitec mics. Top rated, great price, and a good brand to back it up.READ FULL REVIEW
