Book Review:

Wow George Orwell's 1984 book was great! Very good! I just picked up the film which from the first half I'd say is pretty good and would say watch it when you finish the book.

Also just read a great christian/teen ww2 novel by Dean Hughes called Soldier boys, I thought it was pretty good.

I should get around to reading xxxholic here soon and comments will follow when I do. Also soon will review the lupin mangas. Also next anime to begin along side azumanga is kino's journey.

Azumanga Daioh manga

The azumanga daioh manga was good but I'd say its really really close to the anime I noticed very few differences between the first manga and the first few anime episodes but maybe the manga lasts longer than the 26 ep anime or something but right now I'd say both are equally good and very very similar. Good rating not excellent but good just like the anime, 4 out of 5 rating.

PC game reviews!

Ice Breaker by Reflexive

Is out now it seems a bit like ice climbers by nintendo reminds me of that game anyway. This is a puzzle title, it has a story mode but heh lame simple as that. And a prize mode where you gain items. The game is fine and some may like it but as for me I didn't much care for it. Timing seemed off to I would have released this in winter not late summer. SO-SO rating not bad but not good or excellent. 2 out of 4 score. Don't buy this one try it at most.

Magic Ball also by Reflexive

This one doesn't have great visuals I like them and then I don't it sort of has a blurry retro look to it which works but heh. The mouse setup was a bit to fast but that can be adjusted and the game was fun to play if you like the richochet extreme titles though I prefer them this one adds some cool 3d effects and design to it. Good but not excellent which By the way I'd say the ricochet extreme games are excellent. So consider buying this one if you like the ricochet games, its at least worth playing but not necessarily buying.
