S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky PC Game
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Meh 10/21/2010

This review is from: S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Clear Sky PC Game

Pros: It is a different kind of game then a normal run'n'gun. You also can do upgrades on your guns and armor.

Cons: Game is hard for a typical FPS player. It was unplayable at first because of software and stuttering. Finally got it working good enough but the game could not keep me involved. I got so bored I ended up playing HL2 (for the x^th time) and found it more enjoyable.

The faction thing is corny, also. Sometimes you can be friendly with a faction but still have a random member of that faction not friendly (glitch?). Also, if you are neutral with factions and pick up more than one factions quests, you have to basically choose one faction's quests to complete. I did not know this until I picked up a bunch of quests from multiple factions only to have them stuck in my quest log after I could not complete them.

Other Thoughts: Good concept, terrible execution. I know it is under $10 but I have had better luck choosing other random games from Steam in the same price range.

Canon PowerShot A3000 IS Silver 10.0 MP 4X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

4 out of 5 eggs Great pocket camera 09/24/2010

This review is from: Canon PowerShot A3000 IS Silver 10.0 MP 4X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

Pros: -Camera does everything for you...makes all decisions on settings and typically produces great results.

-Rechargeable battery and charger a plus.

-Battery outlasted manu's estimate on number of shots.

-Face detection..don't know if it helps or

Cons: -Camera does everything for you..and came sometimes make bad decisions. It likes to NOT use flash a lot and rely on high ISO speeds and vibration reduction. Result is either grainy pics or slightly blurry.

-Smaller camera hard for bigger hands

-No optical viewfinder

Other Thoughts: For just over one Benjamin, this camera takes great pictures. You can avoid the cons listed above with a little experimentation into the "P" mode. In the "green" and "red" easy modes you have very very limited control of the camera.

We bought this camera to replace an OLD Canon P&S. It was 1/4 the cost of that camera but is much better overall.

eDimensional AudioFX Pro 5+1 USB Connector Circumaural Force Feedback Gaming Headset
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: -Decent sound
-Love the force feedback
-Decent durability

Cons: -Decent sound
-Force feedback noise

Other Thoughts: Yes, my pros/cons they are practically the same items in both categories.

-The sound is decent. You have to remember its a USB headset so you do not get any processing from a nicer sound card. Don't know the # of sounds it can process, but it seems I have hit the limit in TF2.
-I have the original eDimen cans so I have become used to having FF on my gaming headsets. I tested it the other day w/o FF for the first time in about 3 yrs. It is alright, but I missed that extra little oomph. The con is the FF can be rattley and eventually the parts become loose and ever more rattley.
-Comfort is decent. I have not found a pair of head or ear phones that are comfortable on my big, eyeglass wearing head. These only slightly bother me after hours of TF2. See next point for why...
-Durability. Part of the comfort maybe the fact that I have snapped the plastic arm on one side so it bends out more than should. Foam pieces are starting to wear a bit, but expected after 2+ years of use
