Let’s face it, we don’t have enough time to game. When we grow up to be responsible adults, life gets in the way. We have to work, commute, clean, cook, and take care of pets, kids, and plants. Unless of course, you’ve read this article about gamer-friendly plants. But you get the picture. As a teenager and an adolescent, you don’t have as many responsibilities and there is more time to game. Also, for some reason, you don’t need as much sleep. Gaming until midnight is totally fine, even when you have to wake up early for school or work. As adults, staying up ‘late’ means making it past your bedtime. Which is more often than not 10.30 p.m. And the repercussions of going to bed late are harsh.
Plants help turn any living space into a real home. They look nice in pretty much any room of the house. Plus, indoor plants can help purify the air in your house, create oxygen and get rid of carbon dioxide. But some gamers, like us, struggle with keeping indoor plants alive. Are you an infamous plant killer, in dire need of easy tips and tricks to keep your green housemates alive? Then you are in luck! We have done all the research. So sit back and take a look at all the ‘gamer friendly house plants’ we found.
When Guild Wars 2 got released in August 2012, I was immediately hooked. I first heard about it through Felicia Day’s Facebook page, which I still follow (If you, by any chance, haven’t seen her YouTube series ‘ The Guild’, go watch it right now, it’s awesome). Somehow I got myself a beta key and couldn’t wait to start playing. It was amazing. Great art, a great story, and lots of fun. I vividly remember killing a giant dragon as part of my introduction to the game and I still get warm and fuzzy feelings when I play that part of the game. Maybe it feels extra special to me because I’ve played it as a beta first.
Some people collect stamps and I love everything about researching and finding unique and unusual baby names. Hey, don’t judge… Lucky for you I’m willing to share my research! In this Best baby names series I will look into different names from games, geeky series, comics, or movies.
The days are getting shorter and colder. The leaves are changing color and saying goodbye to the branches they were attached to. And yes, Starbucks is selling its famous Pumpkin Spice Latte. It is the perfect time to get into the Halloween vibe. A holiday filled with haunted houses, costume parties, and a whole lot of candy. Who doesn’t love these things? Seriously!?
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…
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.
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.
Harry Potter body paint
During the game festival First Look 2016 we met the very talented Karlijn Levering from Gamepaint.eu. At this event she was creating amazing gaming body paints. After the event Karlijn contacted us because of an article she read on the website written bij Marianne. The article was called ‘My Harry Potter Obsession’. Karlijn let us know that she was inspired by Marianne’s article and wanted to make a Harry Potter body paint piece with Marianne as a model. And wouldn’t you know it? The ladies hit it off and soon after Marianne was a guest on Karlijn’s body paint stream.
Hi Eva, can you tell us a bit about yourself?
Hi everyone, I’m Eva, also known as nonamed92 on Twitch. I’m 25 years old and at the moment a 2nd year ICT Business student. In my spare time I like to play a lot of different games and stream them on my Twitch channel. I started gaming when I was about 9 years old, because at that time the Zelda and Pokémon series were a huge hype at school.
