My Name Is Maggie, And I’m An Addict (Part 1)

by Maggie Wilandon August 1, 2015
I moved a number of months ago. I was only able to bring 2 suitcases with me, and my Wii was the only one I could fit in to travel with. I didn’t even bring my DS which was the real stupid move, ’cause that thing’s handheld. So after piling clothes, my wii, some books, […]

Legend Of Zelda: A Link To The Cash

by Maggie Wilandon March 21, 2015
  Lately, one of the ways my girlfriend has been making money (besides selling the blood of the innocent) is by selling old video game stuff on Ebay. Be it games, old hardware, you name it. There’s been a lot of talk about how the return policies are screwing out the retail stores-namely Gamestop-so why […]

To Mediocrity And Beyond!

by Maggie Wilandon March 16, 2015
Back in the day, when I was playing primarily Gamecube, one of the games I picked up was the game for the Pixar film “Finding Nemo”. I’ve played some bad things in my time. I’ve played Sonic 06 entirely through, with all 3 characters. I’ve played Bulletwitch which was-to me-so bad it was entertaining and […]

I Majored In Digital Football

by Maggie Wilandon March 13, 2015
  So the other day I read that ESPN is now going to start paying college students to compete in Blizzards upcoming game, “Heroes of the Storm”, and the winning team is going to get the rest of their tuition PAID IN FULL. Ok, so this is cool and all-like yay corporations helping people and stuff-but […]

Flash Me

by Maggie Wilandon March 4, 2015
About a week ago, I moved to a new state and moved in with my girlfriend. Because of this, I had to dump the majority of what I own into a storage and that sadly included my Xbox 360. One of the things we’ve done since I got here is download some emulators and a […]

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 […]
