GYGO: Peely’s Day in Court

GYGO: Peely’s Day in Court

Howdy and welcome to this week’s installment of Get Your Game On! It’s Maddi, checking in with all the latest and not-so-greatest goings on in the video game industry. You will probably be unsurprised to learn that over the last month I have played little other than Hades, but having finished a big part of the main game I am now consumed by the incredibly important task of getting Zagreus a boyfriend. (Although I did play, and recommend, the delightfully dramatic Overboard! by 80 Days creators Inkle.) What have you been up to? Let us know on Twitter, or, if you’re a Sidequest Patron at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, you can tell us about your favorites in our Discord! (more…)

Get Your Game On: Activision Blizzard Faces (Some) Consequences

Content warning: mentions of sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, stalking, and murder.

Howdy and welcome to Get Your Game On! My name is Maddi, and I will be your host for this week’s gaming news roundup. This summer is flying by; I feel like I’ve been extra busy lately but over the past week I’ve been sneaking in a Hades run when I take a break from my Haikyuu!! rewatch. What have you been up to? Let us know on Twitter, or, if you’re a Sidequest Patron at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, you can chat about your favorites in our Discord! Now, let’s get to it. (more…)

July Roundtable: Summer Barbecue (With Our Faves)

July Roundtable: Summer Barbecue (With Our Faves)

It’s summer here in the Northern Hemisphere! Time for lake swimming, marshmallow toasting, and the ever-important summer barbecue. Oh, and games. Don’t forget the games.

When we brainstormed this month’s topic, we came up with a few different ideas: astronomy, astrology, the dog days of summer, dogs… hot dogs… and barbecuing. Which leads to two important questions that will form the backbone—but not the entirety—of this month’s spicy, grilled discussion.

GYGO: Handhelds on Deck and Last Judgment?

Howdy and welcome to Get Your Game On! I, Maddi, can hardly believe we’re more than halfway through July, yet here I am with another installment of the week’s video game news. Recently I’ve been catching up on manga, books, and television rather than playing games, but I’m still saving a few minutes here and there (as always) for Picross. What have you been playing lately? Let us know on Twitter, or, if you’re a Sidequest Patron at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, come make recommendations in our Discord! Speaking of Sega, here’s what you might have missed in video games last week. (more…)

GYGO: Controversy and Chill (Games)

Howdy and welcome to Get Your Game On! My name is Maddi, and since last we met I have started playing the life-changing Yakuza 0. My early-game thoughts are that I would do anything for Kazuma Kiryu and his kind, gentle eyes. As always, I’m sitting on a significant pile of unplayed games, but I’m looking forward to adding to it as the games announced at E3 start coming out. (I’m particularly excited for Sable and that Japanese Breakfast score!)

E3 was still stealing most of the game news headlines last week, but here’s everything else you might have missed! (more…)
