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!
The days are getting shorter and colder. The leaves are changing colour and saying goodbye to the branches they were attached to. And yes, Starbucks is selling their famous Pumpkin Spice Latte. I for one love this time of the year. Not just because of the changes in scenery and the seasonal Starbucks coffee specials. No. I love this time of the year especially because of Halloween. A holiday filled with haunted houses, costume parties and a whole lot of candy. Who doesn’t love these things? Seriously!?
The Halloween vibe..
Of course some people are more prepared for the festivities than others. Not quite feeling the Halloween vibe yet yourself? We have your back. Because we have some pretty awesome ideas about how to get your Halloween groove on. And obviously Girl Gamer Galaxy always comes up with ideas that are at least somewhat gaming-related. So sit back, relax and get ready to be inspired…
Kicking ass in an awesome first person shooter. Sounds pretty sweet right? Unfortunately this will probably never be me. Why? Because first person shooters (FPS) nauseate me. Almost every game with a first person view does, for that matter. Can I do something about it? Well, I have tried… obviously. Let me tell you about my attempts to fight gaming sickness. Spoiler-alert: They were not always that successful…
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.
Are you ready to find the perfect umbrella?
I don’t know it is the same in you country, but here in the Netherlands it’s like Link plays his song of storms every day! The moment I wake up the sound of rain drops hitting the roof has me already pissed off. Why? Because the second I step out of the door I’m looking like a drowned kitten. No. Not the cute kind. Imagine the eyeliner running over my face. So more of a demonic drowned creature of the night. I think you get the point. It’s not a pretty sight. But that, my dear friends, is about to change! Because on this rainy day I have decided to look at some geeky umbrellas.
So here I go. I’ve made a bowl of cereal and put on World of Warcraft ‘The ultimate Journey’ (A relaxing music compilation) on YouTube and start my Google search for the perfect umbrella. And boy, have I found some amazing ones. I still haven’t decided which one to order, so let me know which one is your favourite in the comments to help a girl out!
Sucker for survival games
So I’m a sucker for survival games! Maybe it’s just satisfying for my primal side or maybe it’s the thrill of having danger lurking around each corner. All I know is that I just love to play this genre of games. My favourite aspect about these games is the fact that you’re playing together to build an awesome base and trying survive every threat that crosses your path. Personally I’m a real gatherer. I’m always out in the unknown lands to get the materials our group needs to build and craft. I rather leave the actual building or shooting enemies up to other people from my group. I’d just simply suck when it comes to those kind of things. Right now there is a handful of games I love to play with my friends. In this blog you can read about my love for Ark: Survival Evolved, a game that everybody NEEDS to play!
Are you ready for Gamescom 2017?!
It is August and it is that time of the year again. The time that our gamerhearts have been waiting for. What are we talking about? Well about Gamescom 2017 obviously! For those of you that have never heared about this event here is a small introduction. Gamescom is a huge 4 days (5 days if you include the day just for the press) gaming convention in Köln (Cologne) Germany. While visiting this event you can play all sorts of upcoming games and expansions, watch presentations, watch the pro’s play, just wander the halls and look at some amazing cosplay or hunt for some exclusive goodies! How exciting is that? Are you going to attend or thinking of attending Gamescom 2017? Let us know in a comment below. Maybe we will see you there? But first make sure to check out our very, very important packing list. You better be prepared!
The struggle is real… But not anymore!
Girl Gamer Galaxy has teamed up with Dirtees by creating a ‘Girl Gamer Galaxy’s geeky t-shirts selection’. Why? Because we geeky girls all know the struggle. We finally find that awesome t-shirt for our fandom and then it turns out it is only available for men. Annoying! We girls do get creative though. For example we buy a smaller size, roll up the sleeves or even grab some scissors and start cutting up our new favourite male shirt to make it look more fashionable. Luckily we don’t need to worry about not finding geeky shirt specially made for women anymore. Because Girl Gamer Galaxy picked an awesome selection of t-shirts for women that is available at Dirtees. We have got your back!
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…
