The holiday season is right around the corner and if you’re like me, you’re already looking for gifts. Because let’s be honest, there is nothing worse than last-minute gift shopping. If you want to give your loved-ones something game-related, but away from a screen, maybe a geeky board game is the way to go. Added bonus: you probably get to play that game with them. So, it’s secretly a gift for you, too. Now, let’s get down to the board game gift guide 2022.
If you are a PC gamer, you probably have a Steam account. With so many new Steam releases each week, the store can be a little overwhelming. We’ve checked out a few new & noteworthy game to make this less daunting for you. Let’s check out our current top picks to play on PC.
Disney’s Dreamlight Valley has launched as an early access game on the 6th of September. Of course I had to check it out, and by now I’ve put way too many hours into upgrading my Valley and building relationships with all my favorite Disney characters. Let me explain why I think it might be a good idea to get this game, even in early access. Of course, we will also let you know why it might be worth to wait a little longer..
Unlike most gamers my age, I had never played the game until the release of Animal Crossing New Horizon. In my mind it was game for children and ‘living together on an island’ didn’t really appeal to me. However, the closer we got to the release of New Horizon, the more curious I became about the hype. Since fellow Girl Gamer Galaxy blogger Nicky was also super excited, I decided to try it with all the consequences that followed. I will tell you how I got addicted to this game and why I stopped playing Animal Crossing.
During one of our weekly hang-outs a team members mentioned that she had not seen a lot of anime. So, we had to snap into action and give her some recommendations. Of course, everybody our age is somewhat familiar with Dragon Ball Z and Pokémon (Read our list of Pokémon baby names here). But there is a vast and strange anime filled world out there and vaguely knowing two anime just will not do. So, have a go at our beginner’s guide to Anime for newbies. See if we missed anything big!
If you are a gamer, chances are you have some gamer friends as well (I am not saying how big these changes are). And while gaming on your own is awesome, enjoying a game with friends is probably even better! Here are some of my (Nicky) favourite games to play together from different genres. Curious as I am, be sure to comment and share your favourite multiplayer game below or on our socials!
It’s been quite a while since we wrote an article about (upcoming) live action movies based on anime, comics or videogames (read the last one here). Especially considering that it seems that almost every movie released these days is based on the former. Or did the Marvel franchise just got inside our heads? Time to analyse what’s happening in the wonderful world of movies right now.
Ever wondered why the NES Classic Edition was so popular? Why so many people are playing World of Warcraft Classic? Or why it seems that Arcade Halls are popping up everywhere? How come these retrogames are still so popular?
33 million players
One of the most popular games of the past months, according to various websites, has been World of Warcraft Classic. Even the dutch newssite NU.nl had an article about it, and for our non-gamer-country, this is rare. 33 million people played one the game by Blizzard, the company behind World of Warcraft. That’s 0.5% of the world population! The success of this retro-version of this game (I’ll talk about this later) falls in line with the recent success of the NES Classic Mini and later the NES Classic Mini: Super Nintendo Entertainment System. The NES CLassic Edition console sold out, selling 2.3 million copies in just three months. And even if you don’t want to spend your money on the original (well, more a re-printed version) there are plenty of rip-offs going around offering the same ROM’s. And to be honest, I couldn’t resist those Facebook Ads and bought one of the rip-offs too. It’s greatly satisfying :-).
With the release of Avengers: Endgame just around the corner, the group has to rally against Thanos and undo the effects of The Snap as seen at the end of 2018’s Avengers: Infinity War. And they probably will. However, the Avengers will not regroup without Tony Stark (Iron Man) and Steve Rogers (Captain America) make up. But what happened between these two heroes in the previous movies? It’s time for a recap!
What seemed so far away is finally almost here … the last season of Game of Thrones! I have enjoyed this series every single year. I think my favourite scene from the show remains the moment when upon their return, the Starks find a dead stag, the sigil of House Baratheon. A bit farther away they find a dead dire wolf and her surviving puppies. The dire wolf has part of the stag’s rack in its belly. Knowing that the dire wolf is the sigil of the Stark family and there are as many puppies as there are Stark children (even an albino runt for Jon), they take the puppies in as companions. Obviously foreshadowing what’s to come.
