Midnights In The Lab finishes another game and just like Neverending Nightmares, the ending of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter leaves you with a lot to think about. This was an incredible experience, while not for everyone, should be seen by as many as possible. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is the first game from The Astronauts, a new studio created by the...

Review | A Golden Wake

As someone who lives in the Sunshine State, it is curious to think about how relatively recently it was developed from swamplands into a civilized area. Florida attracts many tourists, but even its permanent residents can usually track their roots back to other states and cultures after a few generations. Growing up here allows you to meet a variety of people,...

Midnights In The Lab: The Evil Within part 3

Oct 29, 2014

Two examinations has still not revealed to the Midnights In The Lab team as to what should make horror fans care about Shinji Mikami‘s latest release. Matt and David are convinced that further examination will reveal whether The Evil Within is interesting and actually worth playing, but they’re not sure if they’ll answer that question with...

Midnights In The Lab: Neverending Nightmares part 2

Oct 28, 2014

After we explored Neverending Nightmares, David just couldn’t stay away. Join us once more for Midnights In The Lab as we finally escape the nightmare, but not before experiencing some equally disturbing scenes as in the first part. Neverending Nightmares is the first game by designer Matt Gilgenbach‘s new studio Infinitap Games. Inspired by his own...

Review | John Wick

Review | John Wick

Oct 27, 2014

John Wick was a conundrum in my mind. After 47 Ronin, whose bomb was so great its effects are still being felt by the fact I had no idea Keanu Reeves was going to be in a bunch of movies in the near future, this film seemed to just appear. All of a sudden there were trailers for some new Keanu action movie all over tv. Even stranger, it actually look good....

Oct 26, 2014

Whether you agree with Matt and Alex or David in Midnights In The Lab‘s first examination of Alien: Isolation, it’s not hard to agree that this game need to be further examined. So we return to the Sevastopol to help Amanda Ripley escape the alien menace. Unfortunately this had to be a shorter examination, but we will return again soon. Alien:...

Is Loot Crate Worth It? – October 2014 Unboxing

Is Loot Crate Worth It? – October 2014 Unboxing

Oct 26, 2014

A couple of months ago, everyone I knew was swooning over the geek box-of-crap subscription service, Loot Crate. I held off as long as I could, but decided to hop on the Loot Crate bandwagon not when interest amongst friends was at an all time high, but when everyone else’s interest seem to have teetered off. Everyone I knew who previously loved Loot...

Midnights In The Lab: The Evil Within part 2

Oct 24, 2014

Midnights In The Lab couldn’t quite get a grip on Shinji Mikami and Tango Gameworks’ The Evil Within in a single session. While the opening chapters were a borderline boring slog, there kept being enough hints of quality to leave us interested. As we examine further will there actually be something of value in this package or will David, Alex and...

Tabletop Simulator Preview

Tabletop Simulator Preview

Oct 23, 2014

If there’s anything the past few years in gaming have proved to us, it’s that you can take just about any noun, add “simulator” to the end of it, and it will sell based on that and that alone. Some have enjoyed explosive success for actually being reasonably fun, such as Surgeon Simulator 2013 and Goat Simulator, while others tend to...

Just one session was not enough to satisfy us here in the Geekenstein Labs. David brings Midnights In The Lab back to the strange world of The Vanishing of Ethan Carter to continue looking into to the mystery and find an even stranger level darkness lurking below the surface of Red Creek Valley. The Vanishing of Ethan Carter is the first game from The...

Midnights In The Lab: Alien: Isolation

Alien is easily one of the best horror films ever created, so it’s only fitting that we would try to find the terror in Alien: Isolation. Matt and Alex from Random Assault join David for the Midnights In The Lab examination of this new adventure in the Alien universe and they can’t stand that sometimes horror has a slow build. Alien: Isolation is...

Midnights In The Lab: Neverending Nightmares

Oct 21, 2014

Through our experiments in probing the darker corners of the mind, trying to understand exactly what unsettles and scares us, our Midnights In The Lab team has played many horror games, both well known to unknown. Neverending Nightmares is one of, if not the, most unsettling and creepy games we have played here in the Geekenstein Labs. Neverending Nightmares is...
