Full Steam Ahead

by Maggie Wilandon May 30, 2017
Last Christmas, I finally, after over a decade of being unwillingly stuck with Apple devices, made the switch back over to Windows. After my Apple ID, that I’d had since I was maybe a teenager, had been hacked by someone in Russia, I run into a myriad of problems. Not only did it make it […]

It’s All I Have

by Maggie Wilandon November 4, 2016
As far as hobbies go, collecting has to be one of the dumbest, and as a collector, I feel I can say that with some validity. I’ve collected multiple things over the years, ranging from comic books to movie posters to human hearts. So, for me, when achievements came out, it was an instant buy […]

Click On Me, Senpai!

by Maggie Wilandon October 25, 2016
  A few years ago, I started getting into visual novels. Being someone who’s enjoyed reading my whole life (I know; a woman, reading?! What will they let us do next? Vote?! Operate them fancy motor vehicles?! The possibilities are endless!) it just seemed like the obvious move to combine both reading and video games […]

Don’t Tread Water On Me

by Maggie Wilandon December 10, 2015
I was reading up on the new Tomb Raider on wikipedia the other night, and one of the things I read was this statement: Lara can swim which will add to Lara’s mobility and combat tactics. Having just finally 100% the first one, I realized that while she CAN go into the water in the […]

We Wish Ewe A Merry Christmas

by Maggie Wilandon December 6, 2015
Games are being considered more and more like movies. With game adaptations of films, and cinematic games such as Mass Effect, Tomb Raider or Heavy Rain, there’s no doubt that gaming is trying to be more film like, but this leads to a few problems. The first of which I spoke about a few years […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]
