GYGO: A Crunchy Delay, Brawling (well, Meleeing) Over Politics, and Tracking Layoffs

Hello, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, and I’m officially declaring 2020 the year of the gamer (and only a few days late too). To celebrate this momentous occasion I’ve been playing Control, which has some of the best few opening levels I’ve ever played. I also started reading more, which has nothing to do with the year of the gamer—I just like to keep you informed about my life. Anyway, here’s some news! (more…)

I’ve also started gamifying my Japanese studies, which really just means I use an app that gives me a satisfying chime when I answer a question right. Say what you want, I’ve only skipped three days this past month.

I haven’t had time to play much, though I did fit in a couple of goes at Hollow Knight while on the ferry to a conference.
