10 Ways To Have A Great Convention Experience

10 Ways To Have A Great Convention Experience I love conventions, including every single aspect of them from the guests to staff to events and panels. I have been attending various conventions for years and now feel confident that I know my way around events well enough so I can have fun without going broke or getting stressed about minor problems. However I remember in vivid detail just how lost ...

So You Wanna Get Into Anime?

So You Wanna Get Into Anime? During some down time during work I got to chatting with a co worker, named Ice…yes, it is because he is so cool. During that conversation he revealed that he was a fan of anime and began to list of the more mainstream series like Death Note, Full Metal Alchemist, Naruto, etc. All of them are fantastic in every regard but I wanted to introduce him to other series...

Extra-Curriculum Activities For Geeks

Extra-Curriculum Activities For Geeks Geeks are a diverse bunch who have always valued their hobbies. It might be pretty obvious to our readers that this particular collective is bound by a love of all things cosplay, but I would bet my figurine collection that many here also have a love for gaming, comics and conventions. Yet there’s no end to the line of hobbies and pastimes that can keep ...

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...

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’...

Gamer Chrome-Gycio Bronze Live Streamed Their Suicide

Gamer Chrome-Gycio Bronze Live Streamed Their Suicide Today a gamer by the name of Chrome-Gycio Bronze live streamed their death. At this time we can not find a link to the footage due to Facebook taking down both their page and the stream. What we can provide are screenshots prior to the act that folks received from their page. At this time what I have found is that the deceased was a male crossd...

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...

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...

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...
