GYGO: Union! Union! Union!

Hello and welcome to Wednesday, friends! I’m falling back into old habits and really enjoying Final Fantasy XIV lately. It’s been ages since I played an MMO, but I like this one because I don’t feel a huge sense of urgency to get anywhere. I level up quickly almost entirely with story and class quests so (aside from a very bad quest chain to unlock Titan) I don’t spend much time doing busywork; I hop in and out of dungeons with friends and then chase down that asshole Thancred once again. It’s a lot of fun, even if I’ve heard that the story exponentially improves later on.

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…)

GYGO: Good News at Activision Blizzard (Unless You’re Unionising)

Welcome back to Get Your Game On! My name is Zainabb and I have sludge for brains today. This week, we have some good news that is simultaneously very bad news (thanks Activision!) and an awful lot of COVID-related bullshit. As a disabled person, let me tell you, I am tired. I’m going to take a nap and I highly recommend that you do, too. Now on with the news. (more…)
