Endless Space 2 Review

by The_Dark_Mikeon 19/07/2017
I entered into Endless Space 2 to with a very wrong idea as to what it actually was. After seeing the trailers, I made the assumption that it was some sort of MMO, like what the kids like. The trailer contained folks from alien races doing very dramatic things as part of a story I […]

We Need To Talk About Gone Home

by The_Dark_Mikeon 04/06/2017
Right kids—settle down, get your finger out of there before it falls off, and listen to your 7th favorite internet loud mouth for a second.I’ve been playing Le Games Des Video for more years than I can remember. I love them. I can’t gosh darn get enough of them. Hell, I even have a mediocre […]

Zheros Review

by The_Dark_Mikeon 16/05/2017
There are games that stimulate almost every one of your senses. These games are perfectly crafted experiences that may even change the very way you view the world around you or challenge your preconceptions about what video games are/can do for you. These are the pinnacle of their field or are quirky little indie numbers […]

Space Boy 2: Robin Williams and Why It’s Good To Talk

by The_Dark_Mikeon 18/08/2016
I didn’t think I would be able to write this. In fact, this is the first time in around 5 weeks I’ve actually managed to sit down in front of a word processing document. It’s the first time I’ve been able to stand the presence, more accurately, of a blank word processing document, with that […]

Peekaboom Review

by The_Dark_Mikeon 14/06/2016
There has been a resurgence in recent months for quick-start games. Usually played at the beginning or end of a tabletop gaming session, these easy-to-learn/carry/play affairs are enjoyable little breaks in what can be quite serious gameplay that offer a change of pace or an introduction to the noob gamer. Another use of these games, […]

Concept Review

by The_Dark_Mikeon 27/05/2016
Concept is a game that initially had me nonplussed. I’d seen some buzz about it on social media: people had said it will make or break friendships, but not in the way that The Resistance or Cash N’ Guns would. This was a game about trust and communication, the reason your friendship would be tested […]

Dreii PS4 ( PSVita) Review

by The_Dark_Mikeon 13/04/2016
Dreii is an odd little game. With a simple but pleasing asthetic, it draws you in with a deceptively simple play style that quickly becomes one mean mother of a time sink that grips you and won’t let go. Reminding me of the flash games of old (albeit waaaay prettier) this physics engine puzzler  is […]

Batman V Superman Official Geek Pride Review By Mike Orvis

by The_Dark_Mikeon 03/04/2016
Right Internet, sit down. I think we need a little chat. It’s about Batman V Superman and how utterly ridiculous you lot all are. It dosen’t matter if you liked the film, or hated it, what has mattered is the utter stupidity that has cluttered the social media of both Geek Pride and myself. I […]

Kill your characters: Why Batman needs to die

by The_Dark_Mikeon 23/06/2015
One issue. They couldn’t let Batman be actual, for realises dead for one stinkin’ issue. And no, I’m not accepting FCBD’s offering as that was a spin off. Batman #41 came out a few days ago, showing us the first escapades of one Moustacheless Jim Gordon fighting an energy monster in a batmech. Now the […]

The Furiest of Roads, and the Elephant in the Room

by The_Dark_Mikeon 20/05/2015
Fury Road has been out less than a week and already people are masturbatorily penning origin stories of a random dude with a guitar in it that gets all of about 2 minutes screen time. This is a fairly good indication of how much of an incredible film Mad Max: Fury Road is. It is […]
