Rocky Anthology (DVD) 10/12/2007

Rocky Anthology

Rocky Anthology (DVD) Overview This box set is called Rocky Anthology which is one of my favourite film franchises. It is also one of the biggest films of Sylvester Stallon's career. This box set includes Rocky 1-5 however does not contain Rocky 6 which is the final film in the franchise, so if you want the whole collection I suggest you do not get this box set and go for "Rocky - The Complete Saga" box set which contains all Six films.

Nescafe Gold Blend Coffee Decaffeinated 06/12/2007

Nescafe Gold Blend Coffee, Decaffeinated

Nescafe Gold Blend Coffee Decaffeinated Nescafe Gold Blend Decaffeinated is unlike other coffee as it does not contain caffeine. Now is decaffeinated better than caffeine? What is caffeine - This is a substance that can affect the nervous system, can make you alert and fight tiredness away for a short period of time. This can last up to 4 hours before you start feeling tired, but it does not mean you don't have to sleep. It just makes your body think you are not tired for a certain amount of time. Regular use of it can make you feel dependant on it and could cause you to have a sleep disorder. Decaffeinated - From the name you might think contains no caffeine but that is not the case it. It still contains a fifth of the caffeine in a regular cup. Which means drinking 5 regular cups of decaffeinated coffee could be the same as consuming one cup of caffeinated coffee. I think it's safe to say that decaffeinated is the safer choice as both contain caffeine just one more than the other. For me both are great choices as I drink coffee maybe once or twice a day. So I am less likely to be affected by any of the symptoms as I do not crave for coffee. Effects The most common effect of coffee is that you feel more alert and awake. This happens after a 45 minute period at which time it takes for the stomach and intestines to absorb it. The effects however could last up to 4 hours at which you will start feeling tired and lose control and awareness. Finally the effect on heavy users is that when they stop ...

Panasonic TH-42PX60EN 04/12/2007

Panasonic TH-42PX60EN

Panasonic TH-42PX60EN This Plasma HDTV I have had for a year now and it has not let me down yet. Now I would like to analyse the TV so that the rest of you are convinced on purchasing one.. DESIGN Firstly I would like to say about the design now; it looks fantastic I just love the colour and the sleek design. Now you might be wondering where the hell is the speakers? Well its right under the Panasonic label hidden away under the silver colour. I didn't notice it myself until a few weeks when dust got on it and I was able to see the grills (Speaker holes). I think this is pretty good as you don't have to worry about the speaker making the TV look bad like a lot of TV's I've seed with ugly speakers. All I can say it this saved me a lot of as my living room would not have enough space to have a 42" with speakers on the side. Now the screen of the TV is not as shiny/ reflective some of the other TV's in the market. This is very essential as during the summer time when you watch TV and lights hits the screen you are less likely to close the curtain as the light does not reflect as much on this surface, and who would want to close their curtains on a sunny day anyway. When the sun shining on the screen when I watch TV not had to get up and close the curtains like I have many times with CRT TV'S. This TV will definitely reduce reflective glare therefore your eye will not strain or need to work harder to see what's on the display. Now compared to a Sony Bravia KDL-40V2500 42" I would go with ...

Sony PlayStation 3 (PS3) 03/12/2007

Sony Playstation 3 (PS3)

Sony PlayStation 3  (PS3) I am going to be reviewing possibly one of the biggest console in the market currently the PS3. Firstly I have one and it is great, now let's take a look at it in detail: LAUNCH November 11, 2006: This is when it debut in Japan November 17, 2006: It released in North America March 23, 2007: Finally was released in Europe, Australia, the Middle East, Africa and New Zealand. The UK launch was a shock for who went to it, as it was announced that everyone in the queue would receive a 46" Sony Bravia TV worth £2000. The launches did not turn out great for Sony as initial figures were low, here are the figures below: Worldwide: 5.59 Million - Japan 1,341,000 - North America 2,105,500 - Other 1,300,000 The launch was initially supposed to be as follows: November 11th for Japan and November 17th for North America and Europe But it was delayed due to shortages of diodes used in the Blu-ray Disc drive. I myself baught it on the same week of launch but i feel i should have waited as all the games i wanted to purchase like Tekken, GTA, GT HD, PES2008 were a long way off. Games that ive wanted have only started comming out Novermver time so i feel i could have saved a lot of money. But i do not regret buying it as it helped me get familiar with the system and it forced me to try out new games which i loved like Resistance: Fall of man, Fight Night Round 3. Resistance at the time of launch was a game that would come with most the bundle offers thats how i managed ...

Dhoom 2 (DVD) 03/12/2007

Dhoom 2

Dhoom 2 (DVD) If you thought Dhoom was a good film then what will you say about this film. This is better than the origional more action, comedy and songs. This film has a lot of hollywood style special effects high speed chase where hrithik was on rollerblades and abishek was on a chopper with a sniper. This was also the first bollywood film to be shot in brazil this just shows that bollywood will be going places, maybe even compete with hollywood. This movie is now one of the highst grossing films of all-time in bollywood box office. This film is about Jai (Abishek Bachan) who is trying to catch a cunning robber Mr A (Hrithik Roshan). Hrithik Hires Suneheri (Aishwariya Rai) as his apprentice which is where he went wrong as she is working for Jai. But Suneheri later falls for Mr A. Will Suneheri hand Mr A over to Jai or will she try to protect him? Watch it and find out. Other casts: Ali (Uday Chopra) and Shonali Bose / Monali Bose (Bipasha Basu) The film has great soundtracks and the dances for it are great. One other thing, i tink this is the first bollywood film ive seen where none of the cast wear indian clothing, ive only seen western clothing on this. Check out the picture ive uploaded of the cast in their clothes all modern western outfits. This dvd has various language subtitles and tamil dubbing, Default language Hindi. I highly recomend this film ive watched it in cinemas and ive watched it on dvd sereral times and still cant get enough of it. Awards ...

Ford Fusion 1.4 Duratorq TDCi 30/11/2007

Ford Fusion

Ford Fusion 1.4 Duratorq TDCi This is a great car I've been driving it for few months now, took me a while to get used to as it is different from most cars. Firstly as u may notice this car is slightly taller so the seats are higher so it feels different already from driving any other car. But this is useful as it is easier to spot where you have parked it. One of the Main things about this car is the fact that the inside is very spacey. There is a lot of room for me to put my feet when I am driving and even the back seats have a lot of room. Although there are advantages to the car having a lot of room I think this car has a bit too much room. I've noticed that the car is very wide so when I park it feels like I have to go closer to the curb than I do with other cars that I've driven. I've also found that the back window looks smaller than other cars as it is not slanted like the cars I've driven. This makes it more difficult to see. But when you get used to it, it should not be a problem. The switch to pop the bonnet is on the side of the left passenger seat which makes it difficult to reach. I don't know why they have done this. Although this car has a lot of space the boot could do with a bit more space as it is not very large. One of the problems I've noticed was that the gearbox was harder to reach than other cars that I have driven this took a while to get used to but now I can change gears fast and don't notice the stretch I have to do. This can be easily fixed by putting ...

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (PC) 29/11/2007

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare

Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare (PC) This is by far the best pc game out this year. Ive played Call of Duty 2 and there is much improvement since that. Call of Duty 3 i didnt not get to play as it did not come out for PC. This game was stunning from the start there was not a moment when i was disapointed with the game. It starts off with a training mode this will help you decide what difficulty is recomended for you. The first mission was just amazing it was on a tanker and it was raining heavily and you get dropped off by a helicopter. I jus thought the enviroment was so realistic how wen the tanker tilts you tilt too. The graphics are jus stunning and the visual effects are superb its the best pc game ive played in a while. The online play is also amazing there are a lot of ranks, each time you upgrade to another rank you get another upgrade like wall piercing bullets. Once you reach the top rank you will then start from the bottom rank again but will have stats to show that uve completed the ranks. This is quiet a good system as when there are new players starting to play they will not find it difficult to play as every one does not have the higher ranks and upgrades which will make it harder for the new players to get started. The single player mode is pretty short as it only took me 5 Hours to complete the game, but it was 5 enjoyable hours i played none stop untill it was finished. The online play will be long lasting as it has a great gameplay worth every penny. Here are the system ...

Sony MSX-M512S Pro Duo Memory Stick 29/11/2007

Sony MSX-M512S 512mb

Sony MSX-M512S Pro Duo Memory Stick This is a great memory stick it is compatible with many electrionics made my mainly sony. I got this free when i purchased a w800i and i found it very handy as the phone did not have a very large memory only 32mb, this is like space for only 5 songs or 30 picture files depending on the quality. This on the other hand this memory card has 512mb which is like 16x more space as the phone memory. Now that is a lot. Now the fransfer speed details for this priduct is listed below: Transfer: 159 Mbit/s (20 MB/s) Minimum write speed: 15 Mbit/s Maximum write speed: 80 Mbit/s (High Speed PRO Duo) This means that if you have a device that is capable of transfering up to the full speed of this memory stick then you will be able to fill it up within 30 secs as the transfer rate is 20mb/s. This memory card is highly used and fully supported by most: Sony Digital Cameras Mobile phone (some mobiles M2 memory card widely used now) Sony PSP This memory card come equipt with an Adaptor so it is compatible with more products. I highly recomend getting this unless this is not enough space for you. If you are one of those people then currently 8gb version is the latest out so far but there will be possible up to 32gb memory stick. This product can be purchased for as cheaply as £12.95 online. beware price at highstreet shops are fairly high. ...

Sony Official PS3 SIXAXIS Wireless Controller 29/11/2007

Sony Official PS3 SIXAXIS Wireless Controller

Sony Official PS3 SIXAXIS Wireless Controller This is a great controller jus like the classic ps1/ps2 the design stayed the same. This is the perfect controller i can not say anything about the slick design. As you may know this controller is wireless so you may use it from newere in the room so no messy wires hanging around. And the batttery lasts very long i dont have to charge it very often but i dont play hours every day either. Only bad this about this controller is that unlike the ps1/ps2 controllers this does not have dual shock so no rumble :(.This is because sony could not get rights for the technology. Sony what happened? Well good news this controller is being released again next year as Dual Shock 3 is comming out. So if you can wait i strongly urge you wait for it to come out as it is a great feature. The feeling for the game is lost without dual shock. Need For Speed didnt feel the same without it the ride felt so smooth and unrealistic. It also has a great feature called SIXAXIS which was not in previous versions of the playstations controllers. This works similar to the Ninetendo Wii controllers where it is motion sensitive. This currently is not avaliable in all games yet but i do know that it is harder playing like that but with practice it will be just as easy and more enjoyable. This controller is great value for money if you have a ps3 i strongly recomend it. if you dont have a ps3 i stil recomend it as this controller is pc compatible so you can use your favourite controller to ...

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (PC) 28/11/2007

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (PC) This is a great game i baught this the day it came out the reason i have not given the game 5/5 is because it has not got all the licences for kits and club names although the have got player names now unlike prior PES versions. i love the game it is so addictive and the gameplay is excelent, the players move like they do in real life and you can do so many different skills you can do in real life. One of the main reason i baught this game is because of the online play it has instead of havin your friends round all the time you can still play when they are not at your house. you can play them online or any random person online so you can improve. But sadly this is not the case as konami have designed a very bad, online is more or less unplayable. It is so slow and choppy the players and ball dissappears and appears somewere else. IVe been able to play maybe 10% of the time a decent game were it was playable but majority of the time it was impossible for me to play a good game. The offline play is pretty good, single player mode the game does not get slow when there are a lot of players on the screen unlike the nxt gen versions that have lots of slowdowns. the replays can be saved while being view or they can be saved at the end of the match were they show the full highlights. On the old version it was not possible to save replays after the match was over so its quiet handy if you click start by accident and forget to save your super goal. The game is more slower ...

Virtua Tennis 3

Virtua Tennis 3 (PC) This is a great game to play with your friends, it has stunning graphics. This game can be is easy to play for young kids. The career mode is great as it will keep you playing for hours. There are lots of fun mini games also like knocking bowling pins down with a tennis ball, dogging big tennis balls roling down a ramp and there are about 9 different mini games like these. Buy the game and try it for yourself espicially fun to play if u got mates around and r competing as this game is compatible with 4 players. You can play doubles matches, the mini games ive meantioned above or you can compete in tournaments wid your friends and see who is the last one standing. The only disapointment to the game is there is are not a lot of tennis players in the game. This game is not very addictive as you will get bored afta playin for an hour or more. There is no online mode so more likely to get bored playin on your own. This game can be purchased for £24.96 very low price for a game at http://www.amazon.co.uk/Sega-Virtua-Tennis-3-PC/dp/B000NNM552/ref=sr15? ie=UTF8&s=videogames&qid=1196270935&sr=1-5

Pro Evolution Soccer 2008 (Xbox 360) This is a great game i baught this the day it came out the reason i have not given the game 5/5 is because of all the bugs and poor designing the next gen versions of this game has. i love the game it is so addictive and the gameplay is excelent, the players move like they do in real life and you can do so many different skills you can do in real life.

The game is more slower when you play with more controllers, ive noticed that when i play on my own the slowdowns are not as bad as when i play wid friends. Konami recently released a new patch ive used this patch and ive noticed that the pitch looks different and the game looks less sharp now. im assuming konami decided to use the easy method of fixing ...
