4.0 out of 5 stars A good value, May 25 2015

It is fairly priced given the recent slew of wearables although the pedometer could have been smaller, and more like a fitbit, or even the previous iteration of the pedometer Nintendo produced with the Nintendo DS. (Personal Training: Walking)

That said, what comes in the package is a fairly robust suite of tools to track weight. My only gripe is the game disc should have been a download code as it is a hassle to swap out a disc I'm playing for the Wii Fit U disc. Would have been much easier to just boot up the game directly from the Wii U if we were given the option to download the game directly into the hard drive.

Cheesy, corny and a lot of fun.

This is what a robot movie should be about, not the unintelligble mess that is Transformers.

If you were a 9 year old boy (or girl) at some point in your life and liked the great Japanese shows like Macross/Robotech, Voltron or even Power Rangers, Pacific Rim evokes the same kind of emotions you though you've grown out of.

As for kids, well, the are just about the luckiest people to be able to have this movie for them to watch. When I was growing up, I only had RoboJox.

Great addition to the mining of the great material Nintendo produced for the Nintendo Power magazine back in the day.

A must own for Zelda fans, and especially fans of A Link to the Past and those who grew up with the NES and SNES in the early 90s.

Ce commentaire est de: The Peloponnesian War (Paperback)
Riveting prose. There is a lack of casual reading for this period in Greek and world history and it is great to see Don Kagan bring his authoritative study of the war and the diplomacy around the polis of the period into a single narrative book.

Students of modern geopolitical wranglings would be wise to read this book as the lessons of the Peloponnesian war still applies to the era of proxy wars, spheres of influence and alliances.

Works great. The inside sleeve card holder has a habit of imprinting/smudging the phone screen slightly , creating slight lines when its been in your pocket.

A bit on the pricy side. Friend mentioned he got similar type 'book case' protector for his phone for under $5, admittedly for another model phone. But the markup seems higher for this one.

This is the Zelda game I've been waiting for. Tightly paced with smooth graphics and without all the filler of later Zelda games, it felt like 1992 all over again.

A great inside look at the 2012 campaign from inside the two camps, shedding light on the details around key events we're all familiar with.
