GYGO: All Games Are Illegal and Everybody’s Still Getting Sued

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On! My name is Zainabb and trying to de-tangle the Epic vs Apple trial has been a struggle. Listen, life may be hard right now but at least we got a whole bunch of new memes. Here’s what games have been like this week. (more…)
