GYGO: A Crunchy Delay, Brawling (well, Meleeing) Over Politics, and Tracking Layoffs

Hello, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, and I’m officially declaring 2020 the year of the gamer (and only a few days late too). To celebrate this momentous occasion I’ve been playing Control, which has some of the best few opening levels I’ve ever played. I also started reading more, which has nothing to do with the year of the gamer—I just like to keep you informed about my life. Anyway, here’s some news! (more…)

GYGO: Some Games Done Quick, Some Games Done Less Quick

Howdy everyone, how are we doing this week? Holding up alright? I spent a lot of time watching Awesome Games Done Quick last week, which raised a record-breaking $3.13 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. My favorite event was Regole’s Dark Souls Any% run, which he completed in just over 34 minutes. Aside from that, I’ve been playing Kentucky Route Zero lately, and all of the Witcher hype inspired me to pick up the Blood and Wine expansion again. Speaking of Kentucky Route Zero, here’s this week’s news… (more…)

Happy Wednesday, and happy 2020! Every Wednesday, Sidequest gives you a round-up of the week’s gaming news. What games have you been playing lately?

I’ve also been continuing to play a little bit of Ghost Recon Wildlands and replay GTA V story mode. Ultimately, I’m just waiting for my most anticipated release of any media—game, movie, show, or book—in 2020, which is: (more…)

GYGO: Dark Patterns, Kind Words, and Data Breaches

Hello, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, a gamer with no self control, and the moment I received a bigger paycheck than I expected I bought a PS4! The past couple of weeks I’ve been sinking my teeth into The Outer Worlds and Final Fantasy XV for the first time. Being who I am, I also couldn’t help but revisit the nostalgic classic Dark Cloud. The dungeon crawling may suck but I will suffer through a lot for a good city building mechanic. (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. Now, here’s all the non-Geralt news that happened last week. (more…)
