GYGO: Tabletop Trouble

GYGO: Tabletop Trouble

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On! Maddi here, hoping the new year is treating you kindly so far. While I generally feel that January 1 is a day like any other, I’ve been feeling particularly refreshed and ready to tackle new games and projects in 2022. We’re in a bit of a video game release lull, so I’ve been playing Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator and the 2018 Shadow of the Colossus lately in an attempt to tame my backlog of games. Have you been playing anything good? Let us know on Twitter, or, if you’re a member of our Patreon at the Sega Genesis tier or higher, drop a recommendation in our Discord! Now, here’s all the news you need to know from the last week. Please note that the third section, “Users Review Bombing Tabletop Simulator After Global Chat Controversy,” explicitly discusses transphobia, if you prefer not to read about this type of content. Take care of yourselves! (more…)

GYGO: Tesla, DisCon III, and Yes, More Activision Blizzard

As the year comes to a close and we look forward to better things for 2022, it’s nice to finally be able to write a news roundup that doesn’t include Activision Blizzard. Just kidding, of course this week’s news includes something about Activision Blizzard as high profile lawyer Lisa Bloom sets her sights on taking the company down for the new year and ensuring that the victims see justice. But first, DisCon III wants to apologize for having an arms dealer represent them. (more…)

GYGO: Vodeo Workers United Becomes North America’s First Certified Video Games Union

Welcome back to Get Your Game On! My name is Zainabb and my week has been an emotional rollercoaster, much like the past week in gaming news. Some good stuff, some dire stuff, and a few laughs in there as well. Thankfully, unlike gaming, my life is NFT- and blockchain-free. Unfortunately, today’s GYGO very much isn’t.

Here’s your regular reminder to relax your shoulders, drink some water or other hydrating beverage of choice, and do what you can to protect your mental and physical health this holiday season. Take a time out to play 20 minutes of Hades or Animal Crossing. Ask someone else to cook that big meal for you (or with you). Need to just totally avoid family or social media? You have my permission to do so guilt-free.

Wishing you all peace, rest, and love (especially self-love) over the holidays. Catch you next year! (more…)

GYGO: This is fine.

Ohhhhhh boy. Oh boy. Welcome to Get Your Game On. It’s me, Maddi, back after taking November off to get married. How have you been? Play anything good lately? I’ve been hunting shrines in Breath of the Wild for the last month and a half to de-stress, though in light of this week’s news it’s… not really working, and I’m down to my last nineteen shrines. I’d say I’m excited to be back for your weekly news roundup, but it’s been an exceptionally rough week in a rough couple of months for the industry. Let’s get to it. (more…)
