RuPaul’s Drag Con 2017 Review

RuPaul’s Drag Con 2017 Review Written by Emma Roberts aka Heartless Aquarius Hello everyone! Heartless Aquarius here with another convention review! This one is going to be a little different. Instead of covering a convention based on comics, gaming, or anime, we are diving into the world of drag! I attended the third annual RuPaul’s Drag Con 2017. After the show RuPaul’s Drag Race gained immense ...

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...

Review: Sublevel Zero Redux

Review: Sublevel Zero Redux Hey friends! I got the chance to play Sublevel Zero Redux recently and I could not believe how much fun it is! If you are not familiar with the game, it is a first person shooter that has you take command of a ship and fight to survive against other ships that are AI controlled. Initially, I didn’t think I would enjoy Sublevel Zero Redux because it looked a bit si...

Wild Wild West Con Was An Experience! (Review)

Wild Wild West Con Was An Experience! (Review) When asked if I was going to attend Wild Wild West Con, I will admit that I wasn’t too excited. The genre of Wild West films never caught my interest and I had similar feelings towards Steampunk. Both were incredible in their own ways and I have a healthy respect for them but they just did not do it for me. A friend of mine continued to harass m...

A Slice of Japanese Paradise: Matsuri 2017 Review

A Slice of Japanese Paradise: Matsuri 2017 Review I am going to say this right now just in case you don’t have much time: You need to attend Matsuri 2018. This is my second year of Matsuri and the event just seems to get better and better in so many ways. If you are unfamiliar with what Matsuri is, it is a Japanese Culture festival that takes place in Downtown Phoenix normally in the middle ...

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...

Samurai Dark Souls : Nioh Reivew

You play as William, an Irishman who has had his longtime friend and guardian kidnapped away from him, and is suddenly plunged into the dark chaos happening in Japan.

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...
