The Best 2019 Games We Didn’t Play Because We Didn’t Have Time

Another year has come and gone, and once again our gaming backlogs have ballooned in size. Will we ever shovel our way out from beneath it? Do we really miss anything by not being up on the hype?

The answers are no and yes, respectively. We’re suffering from a serious case of year-end gaming FOMO, so, naturally, we’ve packaged our sorrow for your casual consumption. Enjoy our list of the best games of 2019 we never found time to play! (more…)

GYGO: The Witching Hour is Close At Hand

Howdy, gamers! What’s everyone been up to lately? I’ve been watching a lot of Dark Souls 3 while recovering from a cold, but my spirits remain merry and bright! I’m looking forward to slowing down a bit, heading home for the holidays, and forcing my mom to watch The Witcher on Netflix with me. Speaking of Witcher news, you can now listen to Geralt himself read from The Last Wish, the first chronological book in the Witcher series, ahead of the show’s release this weekend on December 20.

GYGO: Niantic Knows, Blizzard Backlash, and a New Console

Howdy, gamers! What games have we been playing lately? I haven’t been playing much, but I’m thinking about jumping back into Bloodborne (you’re in the know, right?) after catching up on the comic adaptation written by Bloodborne enthusiast Aleš Kot. Aside from that, I’ve also been trying to collect all of the adorable Halloween costume variants and ghost-types running rampant in Pokémon Go. (more…)
