5 out of 5 eggs still fun and engaging years later. 09/22/2016

This review is from: Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty PC Game

Pros: Fun game, very competitive online, after years of playing i keep learning new things and improving my play style. the campaign will seem short if you play it on anything other than brutal. on brutal difficulty it is challenging which is nice because it will prevent you from beating the game in several days. arcade is almost a entire new game in itself. having so many custom games each having their own rules and unique gameplay this is a game which will keep you entertained for a long time.

Cons: not as mature as the original. things became more child friendly and the story got plain. for example.. in brood war jim raynor and kerrigan were nothing more than acquaintances. however in wings of liberty they are now lost romantic lovers.
the audio soundtrack is also gotten lame. in brood war the terran music always had some hick twang to it, but it also remained rock with guitar like sounds. in sc2 it got very country sounding and the protoss music is just too majestic that it sounds like something i expect from a disney movie. the zerg soundtrack is the only good soundtrack of SC2. enough people actually complained about the music that blizzard released a patch so that now there is an option in the menu to use the sc1 soundtrack.

Other Thoughts: there may be a way to get wings of liberty for free. look into what you receive when buying either of the two newer expansions, you can also try it for free with the starter edition.

5 out of 5 eggs love it. 09/22/2016

This review is from: Far Cry Jewel Case PC

Pros: Its an instant classic.
you progress by completing levels which are sections of an island rather than questing like the newer farcry games.
playing it and sneaking through the jungle makes me feel a bit like arnold schwarzenegger in predator movie, stalking through the tropical jungle with an assault weapon looking for the enemy.
eventually you progress far enough to combat mutants which can get very difficult.

Cons: it's a bit old now.

Other Thoughts: farcry is the original game of the series and is arguably the best.. farcry2 was the worst. it had greatly improved graphics but played out like a GTA game. farcry 3 and 4 were better than the 2nd game but still very different than the first so they are not comparable.

5 out of 5 eggs Great Tower 09/15/2016

This review is from: LIAN LI PC-A71F Black Aluminum ATX Full Tower Computer Case

Pros: solid construction.. silent fans.. (i cannot hear them running unless my ear is about a foot away)
plenty of space inside..
everything stays cooler in this than any of my previous gaming towers.
the lights are really cool in this tower.. the power and hdd activity lights will both shine blue. whenever the hard drive is active the hdd light will shine pink/red, so the 2nd light is always on.. and also these led's are not bright enough to shine on the walls when the lights are off. so its not a distraction to leave your computer on at night. yet they are bright enough to be seen in a well lit room.

Cons: if you are forced to swap powersupply locations up to the top like i did.. (my psu cords were not long enough to reach from the bottom)
you cannot reattach the 2nd rear fan & 3 hard drive bays at the bottom of the tower. because it wont fit..
in the pictures you will find a support that has black plastic at the bottom for the power supply to rest on.. this piece is riveted to the case and cannot be removed unless you drill it out. so the parts from the top wont fit there. i plan to get a newer high performing psu soon enough so this is only a temporary problem for me. but you will probably want to be sure your psu wires can reach. (make sure the 4+ pin motherboard connector has about 15 inches of length to get to the upper area on the motherboard if using a psu mounted at the bottom)

it is super easy to scratch off the black paint.
this paint is fragile. i put about 5 nice bad scratches on the case trying to be careful while installing my parts.

Other Thoughts: do a better job than i did and put a nice big fluffy blanket down on a big table before working on your tower.


i had posted a review bashing lian li tech support.
i take that back..
i was unable to ever get in contact with customer support. but i think they read my review here and sent me the missing piece for free...

thanks Lian Li!
