Trendnet TPL-420E2K power-line adapter kit review: Slower and more expensive isn't a good combo

March 31, 2015 | YARDENA ARAR

Team Ninja released Dead or Alive 5 Last Round on Steam today, and while I admittedly don't even care about this game in the least, the quality of the PC version is pretty damn egregious for those who do.
