Midnights In The Lab: Alien: Isolation part 3

After further examination, Alien: Isolation is definitely a horror game that deserves to be explored further. David grabs a motion tracker and tries not to wet himself as he ventures throughout the Savastapol trying to help Amanda Ripley while avoiding the alien and the murderous denizens of the station. Alien: Isolation is the latest game from the creators of...

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...

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,...

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...

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....

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

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...
