GYGO: Meta is Still Betting Big

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On! Did you miss me? I, Maddi, am back again for another dose of news this week. I am still just as into Dicey Dungeons as I was last week, so not much has changed on that front. But if YOU have played anything you think we should know about, let us know in the comments, or, if you’re a member of our Patreon at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, drop us a recommendation in our Discord! If you feel so moved as to pitch us, our editors’ inboxes are cursed with a terrible, unsettling hunger, and we would love for you to feed them. Anyway, here’s the news.  (more…)

GYGO: A Truly Awful Week for Everybody Except Bobby Kotick

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On. My name is Maddi and last week sure was… awful… as the U.S. government continued its assault on people’s rights to bodily autonomy. I think this is as bad to read as it is to type, so I hope you understand and forgive me for keeping this week rather short. (more…)
