GYGO: Support Queer, Trans, and Indigenous People This Pride Month

(Content warning: mentions of racism, queer- and transphobia, antisemitism, including one queerphobic slur in the Quantic Dream section and mention of queerphobic, racist violence in the Pride Month bundles section.)

GYGO: Lawsuits, Takedowns, and Through It All the NFT

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, your local space peace advocate, and I’ve spent this week replaying Mass Effect. Turns out as much as I disliked the space marine archetype in 2007, I’m even less into it now in 2021. Why isn’t it enough to travel the galaxy lifting heavy objects with my mind and occasionally kissing an alien? Why must we shoot (and also commit like, multiple war crimes while asserting strangely human-centric space colonialism)? Anyway, while not reflecting on violence and the state in space, I was collecting this week’s hottest gaming news. Enjoy! (more…)

GYGO: Everybody’s Getting Sued

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, your local gaming dilettante, and I’ve tried to play four separate JRPGs this week. It started with Ni No Kuni, which is absolutely beautiful but has a seemingly never-ending tutorial. Then it was back to Chrono Trigger, a slight dip into Dark Cloud 2, before I finally settled into Nier Automata. Now the fun thing about Nier is that my current PC has a mid-range graphics card from 2014, and can only reasonably run it on 480p. Personally, I think more games should consider worse graphics as an aesthetic because the PlayStation-2-style visuals really work with Nier.

Anyway, when I wasn’t making a vibe out of old hardware I was collecting this weeks gaming news. Enjoy! (more…)

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. While the original Nier was one of my favorite gaming experiences ever, the new version is incredibly gorgeous so far, and I’m enjoying the updated visuals and soundtrack. (And if you subscribe to Sidequest’s Patreon at the Nintendo Entertainment System tier, you can check out my liveblog along with other fun content in Sidequest’s Discord server!) Speaking of new old games, here’s this week’s news. (more…)
