Gotham City Fortress 2

by Maggie Wilandon July 7, 2014
One of the games that comes with Games With Gold this month on XBL for the 360 is “Gotham City Imposters”, which I’ve been wanting to play for a long time now but could never afford because other things cost money like groceries, hookers, or keeping my child factory slave labors employed. Hey, those kids […]

Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!!! Review

by Maggie Wilandon June 27, 2014
This past week, I was able to download “Tales From Space: Mutant Blobs Attack!!!” or, as it’s also known, “Our title is too fucking long”. I actually was very interested in this game because this sort of thing is right up my alley. Being a girl who grew up playing side scrolling puzzle platformers, I […]

My Disc Is Hard

by Maggie Wilandon June 17, 2014
Ok look, I’ll be the first one to admit that that title is totally immature and suitable comedy only for 12 year olds. That being said, I also woke up yesterday and ate quesadillas while watching Tiny Toons, so it’s not a far leap that I’d make dick jokes considering I’m apparently still a kid. […]

Feminisn’t

by Maggie Wilandon May 28, 2014
I have a bone to pick with you, girls who game. It seems like you can’t win with the female crowd in the gaming world. You either get shit on for having your female characters being overly sexualized or not engaging enough. There’s no middle ground. Even the new Lara Croft-who was a total independent […]

PokeMMOn

by Maggie Wilandon May 21, 2014
When I was like, 16 or something, a friend bought WoW for me with a 3 month subscription so we could play together. I never paid again after that 3rd month. Having played Warcraft 2 as a little girl with my step brother, I just didn’t really enjoy WoW, and much like how I felt […]

Continue? Y/N?

by Maggie Wilandon May 9, 2014
I have severe clinical depression. In a life where I’m essentially unemployed beyond these little writing gigs, have no other applicable job skills, nobody who loves me enough to be in a relationship with me and no interest really in fixing anything (on top of being transgender), I’ve got a myriad of health-both physical and […]

Games That Should Exist: Oregon Bloodtrail

by Maggie Wilandon April 26, 2014
This will be a new feature for me where I make up games that should exist. In my last article I mentioned a made up game entitled “Oregon Bloodtrail”. I’ve noticed I’ve done this a number of times in my articles-made up games that sound awesome-but this one really is cool. Every other company on […]

The Long Haul

by Maggie Wilandon April 15, 2014
Hey kids, do you know what time it is!? That’s right UNPOPULAR OPINION TIME! And what a better way to spend this time than at Miss Maggies Mansion of Maliciously Malcontent Opinions & Synonyms! On todays program, Miss Maggie will be discussing how she feels about the length of video games. In the past, I’ve […]

Sega Channel

by Maggie Wilandon April 9, 2014
Back when I was a little girl, I had this neighbor named Josh who used to babysit me, and sometimes I’d go over and play his Sega Genesis. Not because I didn’t own one, because I did (because I had no friends), but because he had Sega Channel. Sega Channel was an online game service […]

The Museum

by Maggie Wilandon April 3, 2014
I’d like it to be known right off the bat that I own almost every console, and they’re in my closet, unlike me. Yay lesbian jokes! I have a Dreamcast, a Gamecube, a Genesis, an N64, a PS1 & 2, every gameboy, an original Xbox, an Xbox 360, a Wii and whatever else you can […]

Toilet Game

by Maggie Wilandon March 23, 2014
When I was a little girl, I had every gameboy know to man. I also had no friends, but that’s a different story for a different day. We had this ritual in my house at night called “lights out”, which I’m pretty sure is what people in prison have, where once it hit a certain […]

Dear Matthew

by Maggie Wilandon March 19, 2014
My best friends name is Matt. When Matt was a kid, his father died suddenly. I don’t have a whole lot of details, it’s not something I’ve ever felt entirely comfortable discussing with him, because I know he hurts from it. Either way, I know he was and still seems to be-understandably-heartbroken. Because of this […]
