This review is from: MAXPlier PRO 10 Function Precision Machined Multi-Plier w/ LED Flashlight
Pros: Awesome. I lost my old multi-tool on the beach somehow.
It's very large. With the pliers deployed, I can use my entire hand to clamp down on the handles, rather than a section or so.
Very robust. I was able to leave a piece of a U.S. Quarter flattened.
The 'leather punch/awl' or the tool in the center. It's a tiny bit thick to fit through the space in a doorknob lock. It goes through but the tool widens, impeding any progress. However, makes for a great tension wrench, however unorthodox.
Cons: Vague product description. It didn't include the size of the bite or the entire thing really.
The bite size on the pliers is about one and a half U.S. Quarters, which is just about 1.4".
The spring creaks a little bit. At least mine does.
It might be me, or the particular item I got, but it's really hard to unfold the thing. My old tool I just swung it and it opened but this one I have to use not only my fingers, I have to use my hands AND MY ARMS!
The case is kinda ugly but I'm not complaining. Oh wait....
Doesn't quite hit the force-eject button on optical drives.
Other Thoughts: IT'S HUGE. I bought this to replace my old Multi-tool that fit in my tiny pocket that only fits like one finger. This thing fits snugly in my normal pockets. Goodbye concealability.
Flashlight body is chrome/shiny.
I'm weary of the wood. It feels like it's real and it might give out some mean splinters if it's roughed up. Makes it look a lot less hostile, however.
This review is from: Borderlands: Game of the Year Edition
Pros: I've had this game since Launch day and I still play it. I'm rather disappointed on the DLC's (excluding G.Knoxx) but they're excellent for this price.
Game is EXTREMELY addictive if you've got the right tone.
Easy to make friends, hard to make enemies. It's a Cooperative game after all.
Animations of everyone is obviously fake, but engrossing.
DLC's are kind of niche' areas. Zombie isle is very short and linear. Mad Moxxi's is stationary and repetitive. Claptrap's Robolution is open world and spread thin. General Knoxx is vehicular and ridiculously Ludicrous in terms of bonuses.
Weapons. There are more weapons then there are Chinese characters. In this game, Skill cannot trump equipment.
Hopefully my review isn't cut off.
Cons: Infamous "General Protection Fault". Search it.
Modified equipment and characters run rampant, but they keep to themselves (mostly).
Online is hosted on the host's machine and introduces a 1/8th to 1/4th second lag. This affects jumping, shooting, Skills and all combined. Can get VERY bad up to 1 second.
Line speed doesn't matter. a 1mbit speed is the same as a 50mbit if you don't modify your config manually (nobody does. Extensive searching brings about nothing.)
Not really a con but most areas are open. You can escape from the level and run around the developer's messy areas. You can see exactly what they did, why they did and how poorly some things are really done. However, it doubles as intriguing how some areas are well constructed and protected, and how others are unrestricted.
You can easily spot reference models for cutscenes in select areas.
Screenshots on the STEAM store have been modified. Noticable on Brick's Rocket Launcher sticking on the outside of his
Other Thoughts: This game is far too easy once you've got knowledge. I've always said, I like games that are won by Skill and merit, not knowledge and money (Ex: Call of Duty Versus World of Warcraft). However, this is the only game where I make an exception because it's a hybrid of Skill and knowledge that get you anywhere. Even though you can be the fastest most agile player ever, it won't help unless you know what to use, when to use it and where to use it. Same goes Vice Versa. You can read guides upon guides, but in a live-fire situation you might as well let your teammates do the work if you can't hit the broad side of a Crawmerax.
This game WILL reveal any instability in your computer. In fact, it showed me I had a dying by crashing when sorting my list of guns (over 1000).
Even though there are a TON of Con's, this comes from someone who has had this game since Launch day and has checked every crack for Lead and Gold. Also I'm a sucker for Co-op games.
This review is from: Newegg Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits
Pros: This thing is versatile. It acts as the ultimate thermal paste, a home for my rat, a potty for my rat, AND a food source for my rat. Put it all together and you have a nice and warm rat mansion.
After Ratty took a few meals, it created a labyrinth of passageways, one of which lead directly to the center of the universe. There I found a cow, 8 racoons, 13 sponges and a bottomless pit with 3 rotted bodies in free-fall. I wrote a sign above the biscuit saying "Easy-Access".
Cons: I get jealous and take a bite occasionally. Ratty is far too pampered.
Doesn't quite hold down the fort. Although it's regenerative ability is useful when trekking across the Sahara Desert, it doesn't quite fit as a mitten.
Other Thoughts: Mine was delivered with a giant bite shaped chunk missing and found several new kinds of diseases free of charge.
After taking 2 jealous bites out of the biscuit, I had the urge to tear every Escape key off of every keyboard with a 59.2 Mile circumference. Upon completing my mission within 41.11 seconds, I then decided to dropkick Eek the cat. The biscuit then trudged down my intestine, and I dropped a nice souvenir on a nearby pedestrian. They became infected with the B-virus and then became a clone of Ratty. Thus began the Ratty Apocalypse.... Several days later Newegg decided to take the situation into it's own hands. They sold Bacon and Eggs to combat the B-virus at 41.11, but with only enough stock until the end of 4/1/11. All Newegg consumers then joined forced to make the Coalition of Eggstravagent Baconation. With all their force, the fat from all the bacon forced the eggs to hatch, thus unleashing the FEAST.
