Dunkirk – Traditional War Movie With Some Nolan Flavor

Dunkirk – The Geek Lyfe Review When you have a director like Christopher Nolan who’s blown audiences away with movies about time travel, dream invaders, and a grown man in expensive bat pajamas who punches clowns in the face, you have to wonder how he’d fare with a more grounded story about a military extraction. With Dunkirk being Nolan’s first run at a war-based action/dr...

Phoenix Comicon: It Was The Best of Times, It Was The Worst of Times

Phoenix Comicon: It Was The Best of Times, It Was The Worst of Times Phoenix Comicon had been in the mouths of many people even prior to the actual event weekend due to a number of reasons: a change of policy, a questionable ban on a vendor, an awkward survey that asked intimate questions, a change to paid panel seating for certain guests and so much more. Despite these many mishaps, a lot of geek...

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...

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...

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...

FreeplayFrenchie Reviews: Uncharted 4

FreeplayFrenchie Reviews: Uncharted 4 I first started the Uncharted series when I bought my PS4 on black Friday in the UK, and with that came the Nathan Drake collection. Honestly, the first game was a little frustrating, being so old, but as I played my way through the sequels, they got better each time and I can say that Uncharted 4 is definitely the best in the series. If you’re new to th...

Interview – Talk Nerdy to Me: A Byte of Burlesque

  Interview – Talk Nerdy to Me: A Byte of Burlesque Phoenix Comicon has now gone over the horizon; and with it, the memories and experiences that many Arizonians only experience once a year.  The capes are hung up, the $5 prints stored safely in the back of a closet (I’ll get a frame for them one day, I swear!), and cosplayers are already drawing up plans for next year.  There is,...

Review: Jotun

Review: Jotun While browsing a number of games on sale one fateful day in Steam I came across Jotun. At the time it was only around $10, from the introduction video it gave me all the information I needed: It included vikings, Norse mythology, incredible artwork, and a set difficultly. I’ll let you watch the trailer for the game before I continue, so you know exactly what I am talking about ...

That glorious world, though, can be intimidating to someone who only so far has danced along the fringes of it. Going to your local comic book store is a daunting experience for someone just dipping their toes into th...

Why Do You Still Read Comics?

Why Do You Still Read Comics? Like any other kid, my brother hated reading and just like any good sister, I loved it because I wanted to show our dad I was the “good kid.” In an ingenious move, our uncle gave my brother some comic books which easily became the lesser of two evils for him. He was reading, yes, but there were pictures, fighting – and perhaps the real kicker here – it was about chara...
