GYGO: Activision Blizzard Sued for Discrimination and Also NFTs Still Exist

Hey all and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, your local language learner and I’m telling you I am this close to being able to play a JRPG in Japanese. This realistically being at least six months but still that’s closer than I’ve ever been! I’m pretty hyped to be able to get some language input while indulging my habit of playing nostalgic classics that are too long to comfortably fit into my adult life. (more…)

GYGO: Nonbinary Pride Reaches Kingdom Hearts and I’m Feeling the Joy!

My Original Title: “If God Hates Nonbinaries Why Do We Keep Winning?”

Hey all, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, your local nonbinary antigamer, and as my new epithet can attest I haven’t been playing many games recently. I did get some play time in Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and even eyed a trailer for Baldur’s Gate 3 before deciding to open a nice book. I just read We Are Totally Normal by Rahul Kanakia and really liked it! But you’re not here for my book recommendations (ostensibly, I don’t know your life), so here’s the news! (more…)

GYGO: Lawsuits, Takedowns, and Through It All the NFT

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, your local space peace advocate, and I’ve spent this week replaying Mass Effect. Turns out as much as I disliked the space marine archetype in 2007, I’m even less into it now in 2021. Why isn’t it enough to travel the galaxy lifting heavy objects with my mind and occasionally kissing an alien? Why must we shoot (and also commit like, multiple war crimes while asserting strangely human-centric space colonialism)? Anyway, while not reflecting on violence and the state in space, I was collecting this week’s hottest gaming news. Enjoy! (more…)

GYGO: Everybody’s Getting Sued

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, your local gaming dilettante, and I’ve tried to play four separate JRPGs this week. It started with Ni No Kuni, which is absolutely beautiful but has a seemingly never-ending tutorial. Then it was back to Chrono Trigger, a slight dip into Dark Cloud 2, before I finally settled into Nier Automata. Now the fun thing about Nier is that my current PC has a mid-range graphics card from 2014, and can only reasonably run it on 480p. Personally, I think more games should consider worse graphics as an aesthetic because the PlayStation-2-style visuals really work with Nier.

Anyway, when I wasn’t making a vibe out of old hardware I was collecting this weeks gaming news. Enjoy! (more…)

GYGO: Game Events Go Online While Cops Crack Down on Esports

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, your local can’t-play-a-modern-game-to-save-their-lifer, and I’ve spent this past week running through Chrono Trigger, which is just as good as I remember it. The way it makes use of the SNES’s limited resources absolutely blows me away sometimes. And luckily, being an old-style JRPG, I had plenty of time to look for this week’s gaming news while I waited for the turn-based combat to play out.

Enjoy! (more…)
