GYGO: PlayStation Shutters Stores & Nintendo Switch Updates

Hey there, Maddi here! I hope this week is treating you kindly. What have you been up to? I’ve been catching up on Haikyuu!!, Jujutsu Kaisen, and Delicious in Dungeon lately.

GYGO: Hogwarts Legacy’s Legacy & Acquisitions Galore

Howdy and welcome to Get Your Game On! How have you been? What have you been playing? I’ve been playing Super Mario 3D World, which is a delightful couch co-op even if I spend most of my time sending Peach off of ledges to her doom.

I’ve been doing a lot of the first and probably less than I should of the latter—I recently finished Va-11 Hall-A and have been working through Murder By Numbers, a delightfully campy visual novel in which you investigate dramatic murders by solving nonograms. Now, as for the nonfiction dramatic events of this week… let’s get to it. (more…)

Dice Sets That Look Tasty Enough to Eat (But That Would Be a Grave Mistake)

Dice Sets That Look Tasty Enough to Eat (But That Would Be a Grave Mistake)

Many things come appropriately tagged with a foreboding “Do not eat!” label, but dice, unfortunately, do not. As the tabletop gaming industry continues to thrive with growing interest, more and more independent die makers are taking the opportunity to also grow their businesses, expand their inventories, and strut their stuff to show off their beautiful—and scrumptious-looking—creations for the world to see and even potentially hoard and own. Many of these dice are so aesthetically pleasing to look at that they also tread the line of being a little too delicious-looking for comfort. (more…)
