FreeplayFrenchie Reviews EGX Rezzed 2017

FreeplayFrenchie Reviews EGX Rezzed 2017 For those of you living across the pond in the beautiful British Isles you may have heard of EGX before, a big and very popular gaming convention where indie studios and big game developers alike can showcase their games to hundreds of fans. It’s an incredibly popular convention with gamers and one that I’ve always wanted to go to, even though I...

Freeplay Frenchie Reviews Strungballs!

Freeplay Frenchie Reviews Strungballs! If there’s one thing you count on StrangeBooks for, it’s an original mind-bending story. You may remember the name StrangeBooks from my last review on Mike Russell’s collection of short stories. In Mike Russell’s latest tale, we encounter Sydney, a young boy living in a weird, almost dystopian world with a grisly twist. In this bizarre...

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...

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...

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...

MCM London Comic Con Review 2016

MCM London Comic Con Review 2016 London’s MCM Comic Con is by far of the UK’s biggest comic cons, attracting cosplayers and fans from all around. This was my third time visiting the Excel centre for the con and the first time going on a Friday. I have to say, as with most cons with a three day weekend, visiting on a Friday will usually mean a few things. 1) It’s usually less crow...

Cosplayer Of the Week: Ninjah Kitty

Cosplayer Of the Week: Ninjah Kitty  As our Geek Lyfe family continues to grow it’s always great fun to uncover more talented UK cosplayers to introduce to our community. It was actually through watching the Studio Ghibli film Princess Mononoke that I started thinking about cosplays inspired by the studio. This was how I stumbled across Ninjah Kitty‘s fantastic skills and she was very ...

StrangeBooks from Brighton!

Although University had its trials and tribulations for me, I will say that I am so grateful to my creative writing tutors for introducing me to the art of short stories and flash fiction, because to me that’s what it is. I would say I have a stronger connection to flash fiction, because it’s shorter, and because it demands more of you in fewer words, but also because there’s les...

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...

Gaming Retro-bution in Brighton!

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...

How to make your Female NPCs more realistic in Dungeons and Dragons!

How to make your Female NPCs more realistic in Dungeons and Dragons! I was unaware that this was really an issue in D&D, however it has been brought to my attention that as D&D is still primarily popular with men that sometimes it can be difficult to create authentic female characters. Without realizing, I created several female NPCs who had large parts to play in my campaign and analysing...

Dungeons and Dragons: An Interview with Ethan Gilsdorf, author of Fantasy Freaks & Gaming Geeks

Dungeons and Dragons: An Interview with Ethan Gilsdorf, author of Fantasy Freaks & Gaming Geeks I first got Fantasy Freaks & Gaming Geeks for my 16th birthday, and as a big lover of all things geeky and nerdy, honestly I thought it was fantastic. Never had I come across a book before that detailed a journey about all the things I knew and loved, almost as a geeky encyclopedia. In Fanta...
