There’s A New Periph In Town

by Maggie Wilandon November 21, 2015
Imagine this scenario, children of the future: You’re a kid, in the mid-ninties, and you’re in the back of your parents car at night. Maybe you’re going on vacation, maybe you’re simply going home from seeing family, who knows. Maybe you have siblings, maybe you don’t, but either way you’re bored because siblings suck and […]

Leisure Suit Larry Doesn’t Live Here Anymore

by Maggie Wilandon November 16, 2015
There’s something inherently wrong with allowing sex to define hobbies. Case in point; women can’t know jack about cars, unless they’re butch lesbians, because apparently they’re “almost just guys”; an example used primarily by straight men, for the record, most of whom have probably never even met a butch lesbian. I’ve never really been one […]

The Candy-Assed Saga

by Maggie Wilandon November 4, 2015
Every once in a while, I’ll wake up in the morning, ask my girlfriend to make me some tea, and then sit down and think about the things that I want to get done that day. Perhaps, on this particular day of days, I’m feeling rather hopeful. I’m feeling like ‘ya know what, maybe I […]


Insert Token

Back in the early days or video games, arcade was king. You’d go with a few of your friends to wherever you could think of that had a few cabinets if you didn’t have a dedicated arcade around, and often it meant going to places like drug stores, pizzerias and the laundrymat. You’d collect your […]

Let’s Play “GotGame”

by Maggie Wilandon August 25, 2015
Every so often, I wind up somewhere online, a forum or something, where someone (or more than one person) is bemoaning the idea of let’s plays. They say they don’t understand the concept behind it, how you can find watching someone else play a video game through a video be fun and they really don’t […]


Uwe Boll’s “Pixels”

by Maggie Wilandon August 20, 2015
Since this is the internet, I’m going to make brash judgments and criticize something that hasn’t even come out yet even though I have nothing really to go on other than a short trailer. “Pixels” with Kevin James & Adam Sandler. Video game movies have never really gone over well, starting with Mario Bros. to […]

O Brother, Where Art Thou Gaming?

by Maggie Wilandon August 14, 2015
One summer, back in the early 2000s, my step brother and I stayed in my room all summer and played The Neverhood and Warcraft 2 all day every day. When my mother remarried, and he became my stepbrother, it was quite apparent to me that he was the only one in the family that I […]

My Name Is Maggie, And I’m An Addict (Part 2)

by Maggie Wilandon August 5, 2015
So how do you get yourself off an addiction? The easiest solution is a substitute. People who try to stop smoking end up on vapes or perhaps electronic cigarettes, something that simulates the addiction while still not being the addiction, and eventually they don’t smoke anymore. So, I decided to try and get over my […]


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 […]
