This review is from: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze for Nintendo Wii U
Pros: -Graphics are fantastic! Vibrant and colourful.
-Audio sounds great. Atmospheric and immersive.
-Controls are tight, and plentiful. You have a variety of options for what kind of controller you'd like to play with. (WiiU Pro, WiiU Gamepad, Wiimote + Nunchuck)
-Lots of levels that will have you coming back to find items or areas that you previously missed; time trials, etc.
-Unique and hilarious boss fights.
Cons: -Loading times. Not a big deal but noticeable - I found myself a little impatient at times when loading up a level.
Other Thoughts: If you're into old-styled platformers than this game is for you!
This is exactly what you'd come to expect from a Donkey Kong Country game, with some modern day updates. The graphics are beautiful, the soundtrack is great, and the gameplay is exactly as you'd expect.
A great experience for a gamer of any age whether you've played the previous titles or not. Overall a great title to have in your WiiU game collection.
This review is from: Cooler Master NotePal X-Slim - Ultra Slim Laptop Cooling Pad with 160 mm Fan
Pros: -Cheaply priced.
-Provides a nice air gap for your laptop to breathe.
-While not powerful, the fan does work and circulates the air a little bit.
Cons: -Advertised as supporting 17" laptops, but comes nowhere close to this claim.
-While expected for the price, build quality seems low. The plastic feels cheap and brittle.
-The USB plug has a passthrough on it with questionable use, since the fan is already drawing power from that particular port. Because of this passthrough the cord for the USB plug comes out of the side instead of the back and can block additional ports on your laptop.
Other Thoughts: If you're buying this for a 17" laptop - don't. Find a larger pad.
This barely comfortably fits my 15.6" laptop, which still overhangs the pad slightly. My 17" laptop grossly hangs over the edges of this pad, and the pad isn't even large enough to catch the rubber feet on the underside of the laptop making it unusable.
The passthrough on the plug may seem like a neat feature but is ultimately more of a hindrance than a convenience; unless you're using USB devices that use a separate power supply and don't draw power from the port. The cable for the plug comes out of the side of the plug and will block access to the port adjacent to it. A minor irritation, but an irritation nonetheless.
Pros: -Inexpensive part.
-Bluetooth combo card.
Cons: -This adapter frequently drops connection with my router. Driver updates have not resolved the issue. This occurs on both the 5GHz and 2.4GHz bands.
Other Thoughts: I have purchased a different router to see if the problem with disconnects has to do with the current router and adapter not playing nicely together. All other adapters on the network are stable, though, only the Intel adapter is acting up.READ FULL REVIEW
