Don’t Judge a Game By Its Demo

People say “don’t judge a book by its cover” the same goes for demos, I tried the Drive San Francisco Demo when it first came onto PSN and thought to myself, they have killed a classic. I had in my mind that I would never buy the game, as I just didn’t like the demo. Maybe if the demo was more free ride and less only two missions it would have been more enjoyable, and I have the feeling other people felt the same.

 

I persuaded a friend of mine who’s 360 has just RRoD to get a PS3 as I don’t play on XBL anymore, as I just cant justify the money for playing online a few times a month. Well he got a few games in a bundle as well as a few games I have, in the bundle he got Driver San Francisco and he loves it. Well needless to say day after day of head blagging he decided to bring it to mine so I could have a go. And I was to say the least presently surprised, single player is as fun as Burnout Paradise and even as good as Test Drive Unlimited 1 which is in my eyes one of the best free ride games ever.

 

As he was out and about on Saturday and most of Sunday he left the game with me, I was enjoying the single player more and more. So on Sunday I had to order it, I hope I get it tomorrow as my fellow OAP’s are setting up an Event which should be good.

 So i come to the conclusion that in the future I won’t judge a game by its demo, as I might miss out on a gem like driverSan Francisco.

Little Ted’s DVD’s – Review & Experience

Around two weeks ago i was searching the internet and found inception on Blu-Ray for £6.20, it was on a site called www.littletedsdvds.co.uk . Well the site looked a bit iffy to me so i searched around for any reviews i could find, i found a few and they seemed to be all good.

What Hi-Fi Review

Well i decided to order it and today after 14 days i received it. The first thing i noticed was the colour of the case, This is what the website says in its FAQ:

Q-ARE THE BLU-RAY AND DVDS SHIPPED IN PLASTIC CASES

A-YES, The proper name for these cases are Amaray cases.

Now i have a shit load of Blu-Rays and i can tell you the case mine was in is not an Amaray see the images below.

I also noticed the colour of the cases are extremely different, Amaray’s are a light blue the one i received is a dark blue. You might be able to tell the cover isn’t really the best quality, this is stated on the website that the:

Q-ARE THE MOVIES UK EDITIONS

A-NO,THE MOVIES ARE SUPPLIED AND SOURCED FROM OVERSEAS ,ASIA USA,PLEASE DONT PURCHASE THE MOVIES IF YOU DONT LIKE FACTORY MADE IMPORTS.

Mr & Mrs Smith, Inception

The disk its self although as is stated in the last quote from the site is a FACTORY MADE IMPORT so the images below will show you the difference between them.

Well the above are all the visual aspects which you may find to be a downside of buying a FACTORY MADE IMPORT.

That all said i have tried the movie and it plays on my Playstation 3 in full 1080p/24p which is a good sign and the menu is the same as the UK retail please see this video.

Now i will buy from www.littletedsdvds.co.uk again, maybe i will get the single disc version next time to see if it comes in a retail Amaray case.

I hope this helps anyone who is thinking of buying from www.littletedsdvds.co.uk.
