GYGO: Square Enix Selling Western Studios

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On. My name is Maddi, and this week I am obsessing over Knotwords, a new game by Zach Gage and Jack Schlesinger that’s kind of like a crossword where you get letters instead of clues. It’s part word scramble and part logic puzzle, which is like candy for my little monkey brain. If you’ve been playing anything good recently, tell us about it on Twitter, or, if you’re a member of our Patreon at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, in our Discord! Alright, on to the news. (more…)

Without further ado, let’s get to the gaming news. (more…)

Content note: mentions of transphobia, harassment and abuse, toxic workplace environments, and suicide.

Hello! Maddi here for this week’s dose of gaming news. Since last we spoke, Horizon Forbidden West and Elden Ring were released, and my household has been spending a lot of time with both. My husband has been taking on every boss he can find in Elden Ring, while I… have been getting my butt handed to me by machines. Let us know what you’ve been playing on Twitter, or, if you’re a member of our Patreon at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, in our Discord! Now, here’s all the news you might have missed last week.

February Roundtable: Companions

February Roundtable: Companions

It’s February, the month of ~love~, but love is broad and you know we love to interpret words loosely around here. So, we’re talking companions! What makes them fun? What makes them annoying? Why did 2000s Bioware only know how to write one human sci-fi man? Let’s find out together.
