The Katamari is Full of Nightmares, Actually

An ominous figure looms. You are small, weak and helpless, bound to the whims of the powerful. Is it a movie? No. A nightmare? No. The crappy job you hate but need to survive? Still no. (more…)

GYGO: Valorant Release, Iron Man VR, Black Ops Cold War, and More

Happy Wednesday! What games are you playing lately? I’m still mainly replaying GTA V story mode and Watch Dogs 2. It feels different walking around open-world cities and seeing carefree NPCs talking happily when things in the real world are not so carefree. If you need a diversion and enjoy open-world games with lots of sidequest options, I highly recommend both games! Let us know on Twitter what games you’re playing and looking forward to. Check back every Wednesday for more news! (more…)

GYGO: New Paper Mario Announced and Tony Hawk Gets a Remaster

Hello, fam. In these unprecedented times, I have noticed an (appropriately) also-unprecedented uptick in my own video game consumption. This week marks what I thought was an impossible milestone: I have hit 400 hours of gameplay in Animal Crossing. I never could have imagined I would spend that many hours playing any video game, but here we are. Whenever I do look up from my Switch, however, I try to keep abreast of current events, especially about what’s new in video games. So here I am again, ready to share some of the tidbits I’ve gleaned this week. Welcome to GYGO. (more…)

GYGO: It’s Mostly Animal Crossing This Week

Hello, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joey, your local level 60 red mage, and I’m still on the Final Fantasy XIV train. I’ve also taken up swimming and indoor strength training, and my life is now just bouncing between those three things in random orders. I’m gonna be honest, I’m not hating it as a new way of being. I’m an expert MMO culinarian now and can reach my arms behind my back farther than I ever thought possible.

Anyway, enough humble bragging about my stretchy ligaments, on to the news! (more…)

Review: Crime Opera: The Butterfly Effect Doesn’t Get Away with Anything

Review: Crime Opera: The Butterfly Effect Doesn’t Get Away with Anything

I don’t like visual novels. They’re usually not fun or entertaining for me. They don’t have enough choices for my liking, and I often find that they’re poorly written, or riddled with grammatical and spelling errors, often due to the fact that their platform allows them to sidestep the traditional editorial process of a longform narrative. Consequently, I am not generally the person to review them here. I do, however, love a good bit of gossip, so when I heard that the game Crime Opera: The Butterfly Effect had been rejected by Valve for their Steam platform, well… I had to at least look, right?

Not Mad, Just Disappointed: Animal Crossing’s Fantasy Capitalism Fails to Imagine a Better World

Not Mad, Just Disappointed: Animal Crossing’s Fantasy Capitalism Fails to Imagine a Better World

Animal Crossing: New Horizons is my first Animal Crossing, save for a few unpleasant hours with Pocket Camp. But before I got into the series, I encountered one inescapable conversation about the game—Tom Nook is (or isn’t) a raging capitalist, a vile landlord, a benevolent man donating his Bells to charity.
