Next weekend is the annual winter edition of Comic Con in the Netherlands. Now, whether it is your first time attending or not, we have made a must-do list of activities you can not miss out on as a gamer. Walking around aimlessly, gawking at other visitors, trying to figure out what to do next? No sir, not if we can help it. Read the list so you too can hit the ground running!
World Animal Day is coming soon. And if you love animals, like we do, you might want to give some extra attention to animals on this day. So while you are out there showing some love to all the cute animals you see on the internet, you shouldn’t forget about your own adorable companion at home. On this day of all days we are united by our love for these amazing beings that make our life so much better. And it doesn’t matter if you own a cat, dog, bird, fish, snake or a spider. Because we know you can find a gaming or geek related gift for any kind of animal that has a place in your heart.
It’s Father’s Day and we at Girl Gamer Galaxy have decided to write a blog dedicated to the nerdy and geeky gamer dads out there. We have discussed endlessly about all the things that make us smile when we think about geeky gamer dads. Yes, say what you will about these guys. They can be immature or childish at times. Sometimes they even seem to forget that they are a parent. But today we wanted to share all the positive sides to having a gamer as a father or partner.
Wonder Woman Madness
Are you as excited about the upcoming Wonder Woman movie? Well, if you live outside of the United States, like us, you still have to channel your inner powers and wait for a few days. But don’t worry. Because we have done our very best to make the wait tolerable. How, you might ask? Well, let us tell you how. By teaming up with Dirtees to give one lucky girl (or guy) a Wonder Woman t-shirt through our Instagram account. All you have to do is…
It’s been 84 years, or so it seems, since I was asked if I would like to write something about my experiences as a ‘geek mom’. Or should I say: a geek mom to be. So I jumped at the opportunity of course, but as a true procrastinator it took a while before anyone could see this blog *cough* 7 months later *cough*. It’s not that I didn’t want to tell other (expecting) moms about my experiences and thoughts about the matter. I even started writing this blog item a few times. It seemed so much fun to do and so easy. I mean, being a geek? Check. Having a baby? Check.

Girl Gamer Galaxy is inspired by all the women who work in the game industry around the world. Recently we had the pleasure of speaking to the Communication Manager of Hurrah Games Company, the beautiful Samira.
Hi! My name is Samira and I live in Iran. My hobbies are music, movies, series, video games, mobile games, animations and astronomy. I first started gaming back when I was around 8 years old. Back then I used to play Return to Castle Wolfenstein. And I’ve basically been playing games ever since! I’m a gamer at heart and have played many PC and mobile games. It’s really hard to name all of them, but my absolute favorite game series of all time has to be the Dead Space serie. When it comes to mobile games, I’m an absolute Road Riot addict!
Hi there! My name is Marianne. I’m 27 years old and I live in the Netherlands. I’ve been given the status of a true Harry Potter geek by the founders of Girl Gamer Galaxy. And honestly I cannot disagree. I’m a proud collector of multiple Harry Potter items. I’ve bought all the video games on every console and own all the books in Dutch (my native language) and in English. I have all the Harry Potter movies on dvd and blue ray. I even own some Harry Potter clothing. Because, like the greatest wizard of all time Albus Dumbledore has taught us: ‘You can never own too many (Harry Potter) socks’!
LFG = Looking for Gamers?
A question some people want answered is wether or not girl gamers prefer to date gamers. It’s something we didn’t realize was important, but somehow a lot of the female gamers we know are in a relationship with other gamers. You can read about a few of these gaming couples here. So what we wanted to know from our community was: How important is it that their (future) partner is a gamer? Do they really prefer to date gamers? And if so, how important is the fact that they like games when you’re deciding wether or not to date someone?
Hi there! My name is Laura de Fluiter and I’m 22 years old. I’m currently studying Journalism, but besides that I work as a freelance editor for XGN.nl: a Dutch website about gaming, film/tv and tech. I have been a part of their team for over 2 years now and during these years I’ve written many different reviews, interviews, previews, specials, news articles and more.
