GYGO: The Game Band Plays On

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On! I’m Maddi, and I am already melting in the wake of summer-like temperatures here on the East Coast. Naturally, I’m staying cool by hanging out inside and playing video games. I’m (very) slowly making my way through Nier: Replicant as well as a new set of nonograms in Picross S2.

GYGO: New Old Games

Howdy and welcome to Get Your Game On! I’m Maddi, and I’m very temporally confused because it’s the end April and for the second year in a row I am playing Nier: Replicant, except this year I’m playing the updated release that just came out.

GYGO: Hogwarts Legacy’s Legacy & Acquisitions Galore

Howdy and welcome to Get Your Game On! How have you been? What have you been playing? I’ve been playing Super Mario 3D World, which is a delightful couch co-op even if I spend most of my time sending Peach off of ledges to her doom. I’ve also been playing a lot of real-life Tetris after moving a few weeks ago, and, to be honest, I prefer the digital version! Anyway, here’s all the news (digital or otherwise) you might have missed last week. (more…)
