Happy Wednesday! What games are you playing lately? I finally played Detroit: Become Human and I’m obsessed!

GYGO: Even More COVID-19 Cancellations, Joy-Con Lawsuits, and Sports Game Weirdness

Hello, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Joey, your local socially distant gamer, and while I still have to go into work I’ve certainly been spending a lot of my off-hours locked in my apartment.
