DeLa Doll Thoughts: Bliss Is Not A Stereotype

DeLa Doll Thoughts: Bliss is not a stereotype By DeLa Doll Cosplay I have some mixed feelings. Initially, I was cautiously enthused (an oxymoron, I know) about the fact that there would be a fourth Powerpuff Girl, and that she would be black. I’m one of those people that gets sad when a story ends. I always want universes to keep building upon themselves and giving me something new (within r...

Review/Giveaway: Archaica The Path of Light

Review: Archaica The Path of Light Ah puzzle games, the perfect combination of zoning out and racking your brain. It’d been a while since I’d had a good puzzle game that could strike a balance between being challenging and able to hold my attention without being frustratingly difficult. I enjoy a nice challenge that’s within reason, and TwoMammoths walks that line like a champ wi...

Astroneer- The Space Game You Want

Astroneer- The Space Game You Want With the disappointment of No Man’s Sky, I was very wary of any space games that proclaimed fun exploration and space creation. So when I started Astroneer, I was hesitant to get too excited. But let me say this: Astroneer is the No Man’s Sky we all wanted. It filled the black hole in my heart (pun intended) that No Man’s Sky left behind. Althou...

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’...

Stardew Valley Impressions

  Stardew Valley Impressions I have an admission to make. I never understood the appeal of Harvest Moon. Never understood the draw of a game where you farm all day. It’s more akin to a monotony simulator to me. Honestly, there’s been times where I wish I got it. I like the simplistic pixel graphics..I’ve WANTED to understand the appeal, but it just won’t speak to me. So, of course, I bought S...

First Impressions: The Shannara Chronicles

First Impressions: Shanarra Chronicles With the wild success of Game of Thrones, Outlander, and various other fantasy shows MTV has decided to join the fight with a dog of their own. That dog is none other than Terry Brooks’ Sword of Shannara trilogy which was originally written in 1977. This was a surprise to me personally since MTV and Sword and Magic has never quite gone hand in hand. Alt...
