Pros: Wanted a pair of bluetooth headphones and these were crazy cheap on sale. Vizio is a good brand ... I love their TVs and have good luck with their new lineup of ultrabooks so I gave these a shot. Very cool design and bluetooth connectivity works great. They even kept their connection to my phone between my bedroom and kitchen; that's 3 walls and lots of junk in between. Buttons on the sides actually work with all my devices (have a few pairs of headphones where the volume will only work with certain devices).
Cons: While it is a stylish design, it doesn't fit that well to my head. Have to angle these things to get the ear piece to set properly and even then, sometimes they'll slip off. Definitely knocks an egg off. Would probably knock two off for fit but these are not my main headphones and really, everything else is great.
Other Thoughts: Would definitely not recommend them at their full $149.99 price. However, on sale around $50, for sure. If you're looking for a decent pair of bluetooth headphones and don't plan to wear them all day, go for these.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Lord of the Rings: War in the North Playstation3 Game
Pros: This was better than I thought it would be. Truthfully, I bought it because its LOTR and coop. I blew through the campaign on single player, actually couldn't stop playing. That's not to say it doesn't have cons, but overall this game is worth Neweggs $36 pricetag. I enjoyed the story, even though it isn't technically LOTR lore accurate for sure. The powers are cool, and then replayability is pretty high so far.
Cons: Customization as a whole isn't great for an RPG. Some people don't care, some do. I'd like more options for customizations. I also felt like it was anticlimactic. Last boss seemed easy and the last two levels felt short, including ending instantly after boss fight. Also, the fighting system, while good enough, seems too simple. I enjoy games where you can get a more varied combo system than just, quick strike until you get the heavy strike combo icon.
Other Thoughts: Game has some flaws, but none that ruin the game. I'd really recommend this to anyone, though I'm not sure super hardcore RPG enthusiasts would enjoy it.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Warhammer 40,000: Dawn of War II PC Game
Pros: Having never played any of the warhammer games before I can't compare to older versions. On that note, I think this game is great. The campaign is a lot of fun and skirmishes are a fun way to experience variety. I think the fact that you can co-op the campaign is great for an RTS game. Units are cool and the design is nice. Its definitely not much different than Company of Heroes in its overall design and layout, but that is good for me because I enjoyed CoH.
Cons: I can understand some people wouldn't like having to use both Steam and Windows live for the game, but if you are into gaming, you should really have a Steam account anyway. They have excellent deals and updating through steam is always easy. Windows live can be a pain, but not nearly enough to drop an egg.
Other Thoughts: I would say, if you like RTS games that have a good campaign but also a fun comp stomp skirmish mode, get this game. If you have a problem with windows live or steam, then you probably want to stay away from this game.READ FULL REVIEW
