VH1’s I Love “Retro” Gaming

by Maggie Wilandon September 14, 2014
Yesterday, a friend of mine on Facebook made this post: “And while Candy Crush Saga is pretty much retro gaming at this point, what about Angry Birds? I think that already went through a cycle of cool, unpopular, retro cool and obsolete. What is something when it’s too old to be retro? I predict we’ll […]

I’m Not Smarter Than A 5th Grader

by Maggie Wilandon September 2, 2014
So, about a year ago, I bought Jeopardy for my DS. I’d seen it available for the Wii and the 360 on the shelf for some time, and thought it’d be a very good, relaxing kind of game. Something mentally stimulating to balance out all that murder stabby stabby kill I play. Not that I […]

5 Nights At GotGame

by Maggie Wilandon August 28, 2014
Perhaps in my 25 years of life, I’ve just become jaded. And maybe it has a lot to do with the fact that horror doesn’t scare me EVER, or maybe the fact that I only WATCHED the game on youtube as opposed to experiencing it firsthand, but once again the hype built by the internet […]

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 […]

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 […]
