GYGO: Tabletop Trouble

GYGO: Tabletop Trouble

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On! Maddi here, hoping the new year is treating you kindly so far. While I generally feel that January 1 is a day like any other, I’ve been feeling particularly refreshed and ready to tackle new games and projects in 2022. We’re in a bit of a video game release lull, so I’ve been playing Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator and the 2018 Shadow of the Colossus lately in an attempt to tame my backlog of games. Have you been playing anything good? Let us know on Twitter, or, if you’re a member of our Patreon at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, drop a recommendation in our Discord! Now, here’s all the news you need to know from the last week. Please note that the third section, “Users Review Bombing Tabletop Simulator After Global Chat Controversy,” explicitly discusses transphobia, if you prefer not to read about this type of content. Take care of yourselves! (more…)

GYGO: This is fine.

Ohhhhhh boy. Oh boy. Welcome to Get Your Game On. It’s me, Maddi, back after taking November off to get married. How have you been? Play anything good lately? I’ve been hunting shrines in Breath of the Wild for the last month and a half to de-stress, though in light of this week’s news it’s… not really working, and I’m down to my last nineteen shrines. I’d say I’m excited to be back for your weekly news roundup, but it’s been an exceptionally rough week in a rough couple of months for the industry. Let’s get to it. (more…)

Chip Chat #1: Welcome to Chip Chat

Chip Chat #1: Welcome to Chip Chat

Welcome to Chip Chat, a column where I eat as many novelty chip* flavors as humanly possible, then justify it by reviewing the chips and pairing them with a game I think they’re particularly suited for, like a garbage sommelier who specializes in junk food instead of wine. This is, I insist, not a thinly veiled excuse to buy novelty chip flavors—but if it was, that sure would be convenient, now, wouldn’t it.

*That’s crisps, for the British readers among us.

October Roundtable: Minigames

October Roundtable: Minigames

Not to dredge up the memory of an ancient meme from before the dawn of time, but we all like games, right? Sometimes we like games so much that we play games in our games. Gaming while we’re gaming.

It’s kind of a strange phenomenon, but minigames are everywhere, so we’re talking about them! (more…)

Get Your Game On: Froggy Chair Takeover

Welcome to get your game on! I’m Maddi, here with the good, the bad, and the somewhere in-between gaming news for the last week. But first, hey. How are you doing? Been playing anything new or good lately? Recently I’ve been consumed by the urge to landscape and redecorate my entire Animal Crossing island, Flavortown, with mushroom decor. Let us know what you’ve been up to over on our Twitter, or if you subscribe to our Patreon at the Sega Genesis Tier or higher, you can bring your hottest recommendations to our Discord! Now, speaking of Animal Crossing, here’s this week’s news. (more…)
