I’m one of those people that loves Christmas. Sitting in your home with little fairy lights and candles, a warm mug of hot chocolate milk with a snugly onesie on while it’s cold outside. Buying the most awesome presents for friends and family and see the smiles on their faces when it’s boxing day. And of course, don’t forget all the good food and tasty Christmas treats. And it doesn’t stop there, nope, even my favourite games are bringing Christmas spirit into my world.
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…
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!
Do you love gaming, movies and anime (not particularly in that order)? Yes? What about live action movies based on anime or games? Still a yes? Making a live action movie based on the former can be tricky. Here is why. If you base your movie on a game or anime you really don’t want to anger the die hard fans by deviating too much from the original. But! At the same time you want to reach a bigger audience than ‘just’ the die hard fans. Quite a challenge right? Some movie-directors thought they were up to this challenge. So here’s a short list of some (upcoming) live action movies based on anime or games.
Asking the real questions
During Dutch Xmas Con we had the chance to speak with Sibel Kekilli. Mostly known for her role in the populair HBO series Game of Thrones (GoT) where she played as Shae, Tyrion Lannisters mistress. Of course a quick google search will tell you everything you want to know about Sibel. Yes, she lives in Germany. And yes, she had an acting career before she played on Game of Thrones. We are pretty sure Sibel is bored with answering the same questions over and over again. So we decided to make this interview a bit more Girl Gamer Galaxy proof. We hope you enjoy reading Sibel’s answers to the questions we prepared for her.
After watching the Doctor Strange movie in the cinema, Marvel’s 14th movie, I just had to write about it. The movie was strangely amazing, even though I thought it was going to be really shitty. I am not a huge fan of all comic movies and some of them out there are seriously bad. *cough*… Batman VS Superman…*cough*. But this one was pretty cool. The cinematics were great. And no, I didn’t watch it in 3D, otherwise I would have a headache for the rest of the month.
It’s October, the month that is famous for Pumpkin Spice Latte’s, and ofcourse, Halloween. It’s time to be immersed in lots of spooky things. What better time is there to get all dressed up and to scare random people outside? There’s a lot going on this month.
