Honeygain: Is it worth it?

My earnings & devices

Earning money passively is always a good thing and while there are many sources of a passive income most have a high barrier of entry to the point if you are able to buy into that income you likely do not need it anyway.

Honeygain is a passive earner that you can install on your computer or mobile (no virtual machines or datacentres however which is something I will touch on later) with the idea that it uses your Internet connection to download and upload which in exchange they credit your account.

Fallout 76: My Review

TL;DR: It is a fun game as long as you do not expect it to be like your typical Fallout game and that you do not rush right to the end. Update: Everything I said here still applies however this game, at least to me, now only works well as a stand-alone one time play with no replayability or sight of future content. Buy on Amazon

Welcome to Appalachia

If there is one game series I have had a 180-degree turn on with my opinion is the Fallout series. series but before I get onto my review there are a few things I have to say about Fallout itself as this ultimately changes my review and these opinions about Fallout are how I see it – not always how others see it.

The first is Fallout is an RPG game which allows you to decide what your character does with each interaction. Secondly, the same RPG setting allows you to design your character in such a way that for one gameplay you could rely purely on speech, another you can be a person that uses brute force, another where you just sneak and so on. Thirdly what you do in the game has an overall effect on how NPCs and the world react towards you.  Continue reading

The Dictator Review

For anyone that has a Netflix account you will know how easy it is to get lost in an endless amount of films and TV series so expect quite a few reviews to come out – although I am looking to change how these emails are sent out for those that ain’t interested in reviews.

Anyhow, this review is about The Dictator which is a comedy about a brutal Dictator of an eastern African country called Wadiya who is your typical sexist, anti-western and antisemitic leader who want to develop nuclear weapons to wipe out Israel … although he isn’t really good at doing anything and has an uncle that wants to kill him.  Continue reading

Superman V Batman: My Review

This review has spoilers – seriously do not moan about it if you read this.

The important peeps in the Justice League!

The important peeps in the Justice League!

I have finally had the chance to see the new Superman V Batman movie and while I do feel the movie was not bad and was an interesting watch I can not help but feel there was a couple of things that really annoyed it for me and ONE major thing that killed the movie for me – Lex.

So the plot is pretty simple which resolves around Bruce (Batman) feeling that Superman (Clark Kent) is an all too powerful creäture from outer space that even if there is a slight chance of Superman turning against people who it might be taken he will do and thus must be dealt with. At the same time Lex feels the same and tries to get a weapon created so that he kill Superman and other aliens that come down one day.

And well Wonder Woman and other meta humans are thrown in there somewhere and I’m pretty sure you already guessed but at one point Superman and Batman bro-hug each other and fight against Lex who has a final ace. Now the actors playing each role was believable and Ben did play Batman insanely well (he played a very good Bruce Wayne) but we now get into the main problem and that was the one that played Lex.

Lex … was horrible. He was like some playboy millionaire that got lucky during the Dot Com era and felt he needed to do something with his life and thought “LOL lets kill Superman”. During the thing he just wouldn’t stop talking and moaning while I understand the idea of the plot was for him to believe he was saving people and no where did he came across like a bad guy. If I was to have directed this movie I would have had a Lex like from Smallville which actually SEEMS to be a clever person who trying to save the world as a mission in life and not just a kid looking for something to do.

Don't expect anything like this.

Don’t expect anything like this.

The second problem although it goes with the problem with Lex but there was no real villain as they seemed to rely on making both Superman and Batman both looking like the good or bad guys depending in which side you agreed on but with them finally coming together (which everyone knew would happen) you was left with Lex who did not seem to have an idea what was going on at all and playing it by ear and Doomsday which fair point he kept mostly true to what he is but he still wasn’t a bad guy in the sense of the plot.

So overall if you are looking for a film where people beat each other up than you will enjoy this. If you are looking for a film with a good plot you will enjoy this but if you are looking for a film with conflict then you will barely find anything – everything happens within 10 minutes of each other between Superman and Batman and then you are left with a “bad guy” who seems to be in the wrong film.

Overall I would go and watch it but keep an eye out for the plot – a blink can miss it!<!
