GYGO Variety Hour: Hey, Wanna Listen to Some Music?

Welcome back to Get Your Game On, your weekly roundup of whatever floats your host’s boat! Now that I’ve written that it sounds weirdly sexual! I don’t want to fix it, so we’re moving on!

It’s been an exhausting few weeks for me and I can’t really fathom having well-articulated opinions about game industry shenanigans, so this week my beat is: concerts.

For whatever reason, we rank quite highly for the search term “wario and waluigi,” which is not something we expected when we wrote “Wario and Waluigi: Who Are They, Anyway?” all those years ago. But because the Brothers Wario (if they are, in fact, brothers) keep driving traffic to our site, and because our other highest-ranked keyword is porn related, this month’s editorial meeting went A Certain Direction and Zora made us aware of this Wario and Waluigi body pillow (link NSFW).
