GYGO: Playing Games Is Good For You But Games Companies Are Not

Hello everyone and welcome to Get Your Game On! My name is Zainabb and I have spent most of the last few weeks unwell with both disability-related sickness and general winter-related sickness.

Hello everybody, I’m Zainabb and welcome to Get Your Game On! This week we have wholesome and not-so-wholesome Twitch streams, among other gaming news. Meanwhile, I have been trying to spend most of my downtime this spooky season watching spooky films, with middling success on actual spookiness, but it’s cosy and comforting nonetheless.

GYGO: A Literally Fake Influencer Has a Breakdown and the Army Is STILL Streaming

Hey all, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, your local wayward spirit, and I’ve been howling into the dull crescent moon all this week. The rare moments I could tear myself away I sat down to watch The Haunting of Bly Manor on Netflix. At the moment I don’t have any game to devote an unnerving amount of attention to, so I had to sate myself by collecting all this news for you. Enjoy! (more…)
