5FF: Padme Amidala’s Mixtape

If you’re participating in The Nerdy Girlie’s 5 Fandom Friday, you may have noticed a few of us have made some DLC’s (downloadable content) to complement the already lengthy blog prompt list courtesy of The Nerdy Girlie and Super Space Chick. You can check out my first DLC for 5 Fandom Friday: the GG Pack (the Geeky Gal Pack)!

Among all of the prompts listed, I really loved the idea of creating a playlist for character. Of course, I can’t just pick one so I’ll start with my dog’s name sake: Padme Amidala. While she’s got some haters, she’s still one of my favorite Star Wars characters. She was one of the youngest queens of her planet, a fashion icon, and one of the greatest heroes of the galaxy. She is not just Luke and Leia’s mother, but she was also a political bad ass. Without further ado, I present to you, Padme’s mixtape!

What songs would you add to Padme’s mixtape? Let me know in the comments!

The Mental Attic takes on changing male toxicity in video games. With the new God of War released, The Mental Attic digs into games with male protagonists that lack emotions and feelings with examples from modern games like Deus Ex and Shadow Warrior to male protagonists that grow and show emotion like Kratos in God of War.

AwksNerd takes us on a 5 point journey about how the Star Wars prequels benefited the original trilogy. As a big Padme Amidala fan (I mean, just ask my Chihuahua Padme), I really loved this list!

VGC Day 23: What game do you love to play with friends?

VGC Day 23: What game do you love to play with friends?

I don’t get the chance to play video games with friends too often. When I was younger, my brother and I loved fighting games like Soul Caliber and Mortal Kombat. However, I found most 2 player games lacking. It was pretty hard to find an enjoyable two player game that wasn’t a shooter.

A year ago, during a trip to visit my then-fiance/now-husband in Ireland, Alec introduced me to Lego Star Wars. It was pretty fun, and I didn’t have a problem with the game itself. The real fun came later when my husband arrived in the US. He introduced me to Lego Harry Potter.

Initially I thought these games were just for young kids and had zero interest in playing them. That all changed one Saturday night on the couch when we popped in Lego Harry Potter Years 1-4. I loved playing this game. And I loved it even more playing with my husband as it really required some team work for puzzles, but we could both loot individually.

It was an experience to see Hogwarts as well as Diagon Alley and other locations in lego form. My favorite part is definitely being Hermione and using magic. The game makes it fairly simple to use magic, and the puzzles are really fun. Alec and I really have to pick this one back up for another Saturday game night.
