The Elder Scrolls 5: Skyrim
4 New from
You'll begin to play this game, become completely immersed in the surroundings, be in love with it for about 6-8 weeks..
And then the 'epicness' will run low. The dungeons become samey and un-imaginative. Weapons begin to feel like copies of each other with different names, so not completely original. You find yourself becoming bored, even with the randomly generated content.
Buy this game if:-You have a high-end pc that will be able to run it with high graphics (half of the enjoyment is the exploration and the views)-You are an Elder Scrolls Fan (many little things from previous games that will set off your nerd-sense)-If you love to be engulfed (you will feel like your character, begin talking to you companions and even feeling compassion for them when they meet theyre deaths [my first follower got stomped by a dwarf centurion. I weeped])
Do not buy this game if-You get bored easily-Your a fan of constant change/new tasks
People will disagree with this review, as it is my opinion. I think as an avid Elder Scrolls player it is balanced, it hasn't blown Morrowind out of the water and still feels repetative like Oblivion.
ALWAYS FUNNEST ON PC BECAUSE OF COMMAND CONSOLE AND MODS
Numark Mixtrack Pro DJ Software Controller & Audio Interface
Love love LOVE this controller!
Pros:-Excellent jogwheels, just the right size and incredibly responsive. As close as you could get to the real thing. The dual function of them also really makes them diverse, and the ability to turn scratch on and off at the press of a button is really quite refreshing.-The tempo slider is bang on, whats more you get a little LED that tells you when your back on track. Awesome! In addition, you get a super good pitch bend!-Sync, Cue, Start/Pause and Stutter buttons are all self explanitory. Work really well and have a nice click to them.- !THERE ARE DIFFERENCES IN SOME MODELS. THE MODEL FOR TRAKTOR HAS BASS, MID AND TREB KILLS ON THE TOP ROW OF THE EFFECTS AREA. THE VDJ MODEL HAS HOT CUES INSTEAD. WHICHEVER MODEL YOU GET, THE FUNCTION WILL CHANGE DEPENDING ON WHICH SOFTWARE YOU PLUG INTO!-I have the Traktor Model yet I use it with VDJ, works at charm and the hotcues work fine.-The effects row is excellent. The button is nice and the knobs are very precise, giving you huge flexibility over you effects.-Loop row is unbelievable, with the ability to go with manual or auto loops and switch between the two, you cant go wrong.
-The EQ is the best for this price range. Some other models do not completely cut sound when turning down all the knobs but this does fine, with complete accuracy.-The track select knob is so useful, especially with the added bonus of being able to choose which deck you load the mp3 onto. Easy and quick to handle.-Cue gain and cue mix work very well.-The Gains and the crossfader are high quality, the gains giving more resistance with movement in comparison to the easy to move crossfader, allowing for some basic scratching aswell as mixing.-Keylock button is such a great bonus.
-Whole unit is incredibly light but very sturdy, doesnt feel plasticy at all. High quality.
Cons:-The heads on the sliders of the gains and the crossfader could be slightly stronger, feel a little week in comparison to the pitch slider.This is literally the only bad thing I could pull out.
Wether or not your starting out DJ'ing or are a professional looking for something lightweight to move around quick, this controller is the one for you. Excellent quality, excellent price.
Akai LPD8 MIDI Controller

Let me start by saying that for the money this piece of kit is excellent!
-8 Drum Pads and 8 Knobs feels like everything you need to use this as a standalone controller for Ableton Live-Nothing is pre-programmed, meaning you have free reign to do whatever you would like with the controller. I use mine with VDJ for extra controls when mixing, such as crossfader bass and extra hotcues.-Drum pads are really sensative, but in a good way. You really feel control over how loud you make a sample based on how hard you tap it. The LED's are really good quality that not only look awesome but give really good feedback.-The lightness of the unit really makes it portable, and the fact that it needs no excess power other then the USB is a great bonus.
Cons:-Drum pads are sometimes a little sketchy, giving you a double beat when you didn't want it. (Although that could just be me.)-Software is a little old, feels rushed and does not get on with Traktor (works but takes time).
All in all for 40quid you can't really complain. The cons are tiny little things that the average eye wouldn't notice, good piece of kit wether your just starting out or are an experienced producer/dj.
A Game of Thrones

What starts off slowly builds into one of the greatest books ever written; full of twists, turns, magic and fantasy. Martin takes you on an epic trip through vast lands, with a history nearly as deep as Middle Earth's. What's more, Martin really allows the reader to engage with the characters throughout the book, creating a bond and allowing each individual reader to have their own personal view on each character. This, mixed with plot twists that blow the mind, creates a novel which will have you laughing and crying within seconds.
Protip: Buy it, and don't let anyone ruin the twists for you. Do not do any research and discover the story for yourself.
