Gaming Retro-bution in Brighton!

Most of you probably know by now that Brighton is my home away from home. I love the city and I’m always on the hunt for new geeky events to tell everyone about at The Geek Lyfe. So I was stunned to discover Gaming Retro-bution in Brighton! They are a fantastic couple of people who organise retro gaming nights at our local Sticky Mike’s Frog Bar and The Hare and Hounds, totally free! I...

Independence Day: Resurgence Review

Independence Day: Resurgence Review If you’ve not taken a look yet at some of the reviews for Independence Day: Resurgence, spoiler alert, they’re not kind. With scores of 34% on Metacritic and 34% on Rotten Tomatoes the skies are dark indeed. However, this fan was more than satisfied with the ‘popcorn chaos’ that ensued. Despite being far too back from the screen for my li...

The Jungle Book Review

The Jungle Book “Forget about your worries and your strife”   Movies have slowly become a family tradition for me: I have a lot of fond memories driving up to the local Harkins with my Mom and Brother and seeing more movies than I can remember during my 27 years (bloody hell I’m getting old.) This tradition has introduced me to some truly crappy movies (I’m looking at you The Fifth Wave) and some ...

Top 5 Games from a Galaxy Far Far Away

Top 5 Games from a Galaxy Far Far Away Maybe you’re a lifelong fan who remembers waiting in line for that strange George Lucas movie. Maybe some of your earliest memories are of watching weathered copies of the original trilogy on VHS. Maybe you’re a more recent or younger fan who remembers pretending to be Darth Maul wielding a $5.00 plastic lightsaber, or maybe you’re brand new...

Review: The Phoenix Symphony – Pixar in Concert

This may be becoming a theme for my articles, but I should put a disclaimer here at the beginning of this review.  I don’t really consider myself a fanboy when it comes to anything that I enjoy. I try to have an objective opinion about anything that I put time into for recreation. This applies to everything I enjoy… everything except for Pixar.  When it comes to Pixar, everything they ...

Halloween at Hogwarts – The Phoenix Symphony Orchestra

Halloween at Hogwarts – The Phoenix Symphony Orchestra This past Sunday, I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a show put on by The Phoenix Symphony, which they appropriately named “Halloween at Hogwarts.” For the two or three people who probably won’t understand what this entails, it was a musical performance by The Phoenix Symphony themed around Halloween and, more ...

Connecting with Amiibos

The world of Amiibos is familiar to only a selective few. Many people don’t know about Amiibos, or at least don’t understand the draw of them. Needless to say, I am not one of these people. I have been sucked into the world of Amiibos forcefully and willingly. These simple figurines have brought me back to my childhood, when Nintendo was my everything, when I could depend on them to cr...

Everyone here knows of Phoenix Comic Con and how massive it is but not many really know everything Arizona has to offer. Game On Expo was a gaming convention specifically for video games, whic...

Opinion – World of Warcraft: Legion

Opinion – World of Warcraft: Legion On 8/6/2105 in Germany at a convention called Gamescom, Blizzard announced their next expansion: Legion and gave information to the major aspects of what was coming next. The story of this next chapter of WoW takes Gul’Dan to open the flood gates for demons and they come to Azeroth once again with a vengeance. So we can expect to battle demons both s...

Vote Bunnylord: NOT A HERO Review

Vote Bunnylord: NOT A HERO Review If there is one thing I love, and hate, about games, it’s how the simplest parts always end up being the trickiest. I start out strong, but then die towards the end of the level. So I keep playing, over and over, but I keep dying at that same part. My frustration grows, and my “oh man” and “grrrr” turn into “what the heck!”...

The Phoenix Symphony Presents rePLAY: Symphony of Heroes

The Phoenix Symphony Presents rePLAY: Symphony of Heroes The Phoenix Symphony is well known for hosting creative and amazing shows. Their musicians are extremely talented, and the music they perform is beautiful. Usually, this musical world doesn’t overlap into the gaming world – until now. The symphony debuted a new show called rePLAY: A Video Game Symphony of Heroes on June 6. The sh...

Nintendo Hadoukens Super Smash Fans

Nintendo kicks off today with a 20 min. video explaining what they released today for Super Smash Wii U/3DS! Ryu Just from seeing this, I already know that Ryu will be a fan favorite and will most likely be winning tournaments (depending on who uses him of course). Not only is he the only smash fighter with two special smash moves, but he also has a wider variety of skill sets. He has his “B...
