Content warning: mentions of sexual harassment, gender-based discrimination, and rape culture.

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On. My name is Zainabb and I’m still waiting for gaming to stop being such a toxic, abusive hellhole. We’re continuing to follow the news around the Activision Blizzard lawsuit, and allegations of similar behaviours experienced at Ubisoft. Please note that I haven’t included any specific descriptions of those behaviours but that most of the links contain at least some specifics.

GYGO: Activision Blizzard Sued for Discrimination and Also NFTs Still Exist

Hey all and welcome to GYGO! I’m Kael, your local language learner and I’m telling you I am this close to being able to play a JRPG in Japanese. This realistically being at least six months but still that’s closer than I’ve ever been! I’m pretty hyped to be able to get some language input while indulging my habit of playing nostalgic classics that are too long to comfortably fit into my adult life. (more…)

GYGO: Handhelds on Deck and Last Judgment?

Howdy and welcome to Get Your Game On! I, Maddi, can hardly believe we’re more than halfway through July, yet here I am with another installment of the week’s video game news.

GYGO: Nonbinary Pride Reaches Kingdom Hearts and I’m Feeling the Joy!

My Original Title: “If God Hates Nonbinaries Why Do We Keep Winning?”

Hey all, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Kael, your local nonbinary antigamer, and as my new epithet can attest I haven’t been playing many games recently. I did get some play time in Mass Effect Legendary Edition, and even eyed a trailer for Baldur’s Gate 3 before deciding to open a nice book. I just read We Are Totally Normal by Rahul Kanakia and really liked it! But you’re not here for my book recommendations (ostensibly, I don’t know your life), so here’s the news! (more…)
