Here’s our gaming news for this week.

GYGO: Riots Reach Twitch but Nice Things Happened Too

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joesph, your local expatriated American, and it sure has been a week for news. Luckily most of it has been outside of the gaming sphere, giving me time to process and even start playing Ring Fit Adventure as a nice distraction.

GYGO: MAGfest and Flash Are Dead As We Know Them

Happy New Year, everyone! I hope you had a restful and relaxing last few days of the absolute trash fire that was 2020 and are now enjoying a kind beginning to 2021. I spent the past few weeks playing about as many mystery games as I could get my grubby little hands on—which was many, thanks to the Steam winter sale. Some of my favorites were The Painscreek Killings, a gentle investigation game that initially reminded me of Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture but with a major twist at the end, and The Flower Collectors, a short but incredibly engaging murder mystery set amidst political turmoil in 1977 Spain.

GYGO: CD Projekt Red Keeps Digging That Hole

Hi there and welcome to Get Your Game On! My name is Zainabb and this weekend, my friend set up my computer so that I can now play my massive PC gaming backlog on my television while lounging on the sofa, and I am SO EXCITED. Please take some time over the next couple of days to put together a self care plan for Christmas and the rest of the holiday period if, like me, you find this time of year difficult or triggering. Part of my self care is going to involve playing mystery games on my sofa while eating chocolate biscuits. (more…)
