The action, the weapons, the boss battles -- Ninja Blade's got it all!
- Great action, stylish cinematics, exquisite sound effects, Todome powers
- Parasitic infestation storyline obviously "inspired" by Resident Evil
Ninja Blade is a game full of awesome moments. It's not incredibly deep and it won't redefine the genre but it's a kick-ass title that will please action junkies looking for an adrenaline kick. It does a great job of making you feel like the star of a blockbuster action flick. It's easily one of the best action games I've ever played on the Xbox 360. Now, go play it or I'll hunt you down and Todome your ass back to fifth grade.

Ninja Blade: Know Thy Enemy
The action in Ninja Blade literally bursts at you from all angles, brought to you by a horde of memorable enemy types. Most of them have insect-like features and shamble along like dishevelled, sloppy zombies.
The low-level zombies are split into three types and range from heavily armored tanks to mutated beasts that spit out explosives from their arm. However, it's the boss battles that really put this game on the map. There is a wide selection of bosses and they're all the size of small skyscrapers; these immense beasts are ridiculously fun to battle even though they can be quite frustrating at times.
There are organically shaped bosses like a Hydra, Stalker Larva, and explosive Blast Mites but the devious Alpha Worms aren't above taking over mechanical objects like trains and choppers.
To deal with all the assorted creeps, you're given a slick variety of weapons to use. Now, in most games, you find the one weapon that kicks the most ass and you stick with it. In God of War, for instance, I mostly used the chain whips even though there were other weapons lying around.
Well, Ninja Blade forces you to use every single item in your arsenal - that's a good thing, trust me. You have three blades: the Stonerender, Oni-Slayer, and the Twin Blades. The Stonerender, a personal favourite, is a heavy blade that breaks walls and heavy armor.
The Twin Blades which double as grappling wires are good for taking care of pesky fliers such as bats and bees. The third blade is the Oni-Slayer which is a happy medium and the key to nearing the end of the infestation.
Ninja Blade: Throw In The Towel
You also have access to a shuriken for long-distance pwnage but it isn't a run-of-the-mill ninja star. You can imbue it with wind, fire, and electricity powers to spice things up. When wind mode is activated, you can put out fires and throw enemies around to clear space for yourself.
It also breaks walls so that you can use the Twin Blades wires to bridge large gaps. The fire mode is pretty straightforward - you toss it at enemies to light them up with flames. The electricity mode is definitely my favourite because you can electrocute enemies and slap them around as they fry.
All of your weapons are upgradeable as well. You can unlock new abilities and increase the amount of damage you dish out by using blood crystals that you collect during your battles. The upgrades even extend to the overall look and theme of the game menus-they get progressively more badass as you power-up. You can also play dress-up with your character by unlocking new outfits and emblems to deck out your ninja gear.

I have had the pleasure of owning notebooks from Dynabook’s predecessor Toshiba for both work and leisure in the past. Toshiba’s attention to quality of build and design of the notebooks is second to none. The re-branding to Dynabook and the launch of the new range was completed in early 2019. I am pleased to confirm that not only did Dynabook further refine what Toshiba has left off; they have set a new benchmark for the ultra-light notebook category.
This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.
It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.
As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.
The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.
This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
