March Roundtable: Crafting in Games

March Roundtable: Crafting in Games

In the midst of COVID-19 fears, the Sidequest team decided to focus our roundtable on something wholesome: crafting in games. We sat down (virtually, of course) and talked through in both tabletop and video games. Are you a fan of crafting in games? Sound off in the comments and let us know what does and doesn’t work for you! (more…)

GYGO: Even More COVID-19 Cancellations, Joy-Con Lawsuits, and Sports Game Weirdness

Hello, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joey, your local socially distant gamer, and while I still have to go into work I’ve certainly been spending a lot of my off-hours locked in my apartment. This means I finally got a chance to get back into The Outer Worlds. It’s fun to shoot things good, and less fun to think about the presence of capitalism in space. A good experience all around.

GYGO: Dark Patterns, Kind Words, and Data Breaches

Hello, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, a gamer with no self control, and the moment I received a bigger paycheck than I expected I bought a PS4! The past couple of weeks I’ve been sinking my teeth into The Outer Worlds and Final Fantasy XV for the first time. Being who I am, I also couldn’t help but revisit the nostalgic classic Dark Cloud. The dungeon crawling may suck but I will suffer through a lot for a good city building mechanic. (more…)
