Freeplay Frenchie Reviews The Last Guardian

Freeplay Frenchie Reviews The Last Guardian The Last Guardian, one of the games we had all been waiting for, from the creators of The Shadow of the Colossus, has finally been released to us. Despite Shadow of the Colossus being widely known as an incredible game fans were anxious that Sony, Team Ico and SIE Japan Studio, kicked it up a notch this year. The Last Guardian has been almost unanimously...

Overcooked: Where Animal Crossing Meets Kitchen Nightmares (Video)

  Overcooked:  Where Animal Crossing Meets Kitchen Nightmares Recently, a couple of us from The Geek Lyfe (namely Gumbers and Powerforce of Brostalgia) sat down and took the time to play Overcooked on Steam.  If I had to sum up the game in one word, it’d probably have to be “chaos.”  Luckily for everybody reading though, I’m not restricted to just one word.  Let’...

Freeplay Frenchie Reviews Assassin’s Creed

Freeplay Frenchie Reviews Assassin’s Creed Like most gamers witnessing their favourite franchises convert to cinema, I was apprehensive to say the least about the Assassin’s Creed movie. Though I had heard some things to suggest it could be a success, such as Ubisoft retaining most of the control about which directions to take the film in and thus create a film that fans could be proud...

Review: Your Name

Review: Your Name As many know, a number f our staff here at The Geek Lyfe are weebs. Wars have been raged internally about which method of anime is best: Subbed or Dubbed many times. (Subbed for lyfe!) One thing we all can agree on is that Your Name blew our minds and made us feel all the feels. If you are unfamiliar with the 2016 film, it’s the story of two high schoolers who live normal l...

FreeplayFrenchie Reviews: Doctor Strange

FreeplayFrenchie Reviews: Doctor Strange As we left the Odean cinema last week in Brighton, my friend and I agreed that Doctor Strange could be summed quite politely like this: Inception, but on LSD. That being said, I would say Doctor Strange is much easier to follow, however, the visuals are so stunning that I did warn my Mum it might make her feel sick. I can’t imagine what it would be li...

Review: Kikori Con 2016

This little Flagstaff convention has been around since 2013. It replaced the con “Anime Kaigi”, which was discontinued, after being Kickstarter funded.

Thinking Outside the D&D Box

Thinking Outside the D&D Box The ground shook as it split in two. The growing chasm pried apart in a wicked grin splitting the group apart…making way for the Abomination resting beneath. Taldan the wizard stumbled, nearly falling to the ground as a large tendril rose from the split in the earth seeking purchase. Taldan’s eyes narrowed as he gripped his staff, his whitening knuckles betraying h...

Fan Fest 2016 Review

Fanfest 2016 Review As most folks know in Arizona, Phoenix Comicon is by far the greatest comic book convention every year. It made many con goers sad when it’s time came and went then we had nothing but 12 long months to wait before the next event. However, when Fan Fest rolled out a few years ago, this changed! It was originally held in the harsh Arizona winter where geeks would travel thr...

Unravel Review – A New Standard for 2D Puzzle Games

Unravel Review – A New Standard for 2D Puzzle Games If you haven’t heard before, I’m not one for puzzle games. I just do not have the patience to persevere and when the answer finally is revealed, and its been staring me in the face the whole time, I usually feel like turning the whole thing off. Take Limbo for example, a game I decided to finally play because Inside looked amazi...
