Review | Drive to Hell

When you think of first person shooters, you tend to think of hulking space marines barreling down a corridor. When you think of platformers, mascots of all different colors and sizes spring to mind. When you think of shoot-em-ups like Drive To Hell, convention would make you visualize either airplanes or anime girls, depending on your mood at the time. Thankfully, Drive to Hell is a breath of fresh air, defying convention while also...

Review | Saints Row: Gat out of Hell

Johnny Gat is one of the most cartoonish characters in all of Saints Row, which is saying something considering the franchise also features giant Russian mutants and a pimp who speaks in Auto-Tune. After all, his character traits all revolve around murdering things for enjoyment, except for the one about avenging his long-dead girlfriend. Fans are drawn to him for both the right and wrong reasons, but he is a clear go-to for the first...

Review | Tales From The Borderlands Episode 1: Zer0 Sum

Some purists may be offended by the dirt-simple puzzles and fragrant use of quick time events, but when those sacrifices are made for the sake of pacing to...

Review | Game of Thrones – A Telltale Game: Iron from Ice

Welcome to the test of a new review format. We at Geekenstein have begun doing more Let’s Plays than before and if you’re going join us as we play through games, why shouldn’t the review be a part of that process. Instead of separating the review, we’re just going off the cuff as the credits roll and we’re starting with Telltale’s Game of Thrones episode one. Let us know what you think in the...

Review | Screencheat

It’s funny to think that just over a decade ago, game consoles hadn’t yet harnessed the power of online gaming. When titles like the original Halo hit the scene, multiplayer matches cropped up mainly in college towns in the now legendary LAN parties of the time, where CRTs were hauled into basements and common areas for sixteen player deathmatches. If you grew up around that time, even if you didn’t participate, you...
