And because the movie sucks.

Review Tuesday: Firstbuy Dimmable Goose-neck LED Reading Light

Firstbuy Dimmable Gooseneck LED Reading Light

I have been looking for a light like this for a while. This goose-neck reading lamp has a clamp and a low profile. While it's meant to be a reading lamp, this device can serve endless possibilities. I am planning on using this for working on the car, as the clamp has a big mouth to grab onto about anything, and the flexible goose-neck can bring light where ever you need it. The light is also dimmable, so you can have as much light as you need, or trim it down a little if it's blinding you. What is the icing on the cake is the way it's USB-rechargeable. No wires to deal with on site, and LEDs have low battery draw, so you can be certain that you will be able to use this for a good long time without worry.

Review Tuesday: Injustice 2 Mobile

Injustice 2

From the same guys who gave us MKX, comes Injustice 2. I didn't try the original one, so I don't know how this one stacks up in comparison. But I gave it a show and downloaded it as soon as it was available. 

Very similar to MKX, in Injustice2 you build you team, fight other teams and do it some more. The trouble is, while you have more movement in INJUSTICE 2, the controls aren't very good. You feel like you are telling your character to do things and they just don't respond. Or worse, it seems like your opponent is reading what you want to do, and counteracts before you get to do it. 

Then you have the challenges so you can win new characters for your team. But it stinks being able to only win a couple shards at a time when you need around 300 to unlock a new character. 

I found this game frustrating from the start but kept trying for months. I never felt like the got the hang of it, which is a shame since the game looks really good with nice graphics and impressive characters. But the controls really turned me off to teh point that I finally gave up and deleted it from my Android device last weekend. 

Maybe you'll have better luck than I did.

Review Tuesday: Mortal Kombat X Mobile

Mortal Kombat X

Any who knows me knows that I am not much of a gamer. Not a lot of time, and I have better things to spend my money on. However, about two years ago my Kindle Fire popped up a message that I might be interested in Mortal Kombat X. It was free, so why not give it a try?

For a game meant to be played on a phone or tablet, the graphics are very impressive. The controls are limited, but easy to master, and the game play is similar to the console and PC versions. Pretty much the only thing you can't do is jump over your opponent. But you can block, use basic attacks and have a variety of special attacks. They make the game more fun with challenges to win new characters, Battle Mode (a story mode of sorts), Shao Kahn's Tower to win new abilities and Faction Wars to fight against other players. The end game in all modes is winning stuff. It might be various currencies in the realm, or equipment, or even new and more powerful characters. 

The game is pretty straightforward. You play and win, you get stuff. You lose, you don't. If you enter a challenge for a character, you have to complete 100% of it to get the prize. You don't have the fight power to get it done, well then you miss out. 

I find the game fun and challenging to play and you don't even have to invest a whole lot of time in it.
