Hi, I’m Zainabb and welcome to Get Your Game On! Kotaku have finally taken down that article so maybe they’ll make an active effort to be less trash now? Let’s see. Read on to find out what else is on fire in the gaming world. (more…)

We Don’t Need a Flow State: Intentional Frustration in I Am Bread

We Don’t Need a Flow State: Intentional Frustration in I Am Bread

I first experienced an intentionally frustrating game when someone showed me QWOP in my freshman dorm room. I was relatively new to PC gaming, and some of my boyfriend’s rather unkind friends liked to poke fun at my lack of skill; I was probably presented with QWOP as a joke intended to frustrate me for their amusement.

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 Joesph, 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…)

The Definitive Ranking of Game Fashion Icons, Part I

We play games. We eat games. We also dress games, because gaming is absolutely packed with fashion icons. This month, we’re taking stock of some of gaming’s sharpest dressers.

GYGO: Controversy and Chill (Games)

Howdy and welcome to Get Your Game On! My name is Maddi, and since last we met I have started playing the life-changing Yakuza 0. My early-game thoughts are that I would do anything for Kazuma Kiryu and his kind, gentle eyes. As always, I’m sitting on a significant pile of unplayed games, but I’m looking forward to adding to it as the games announced at E3 start coming out. (I’m particularly excited for Sable and that Japanese Breakfast score!)

E3 was still stealing most of the game news headlines last week, but here’s everything else you might have missed! (more…)

GYGO: DMCA Takedown Threats Cause E3 Issues

Hello and welcome to Wednesday! It’s been a while since I handled the news roundup, so to tell you what I’ve been playing would take a long time. Lately, it’s all about The Sims—I’m in one of those Sims throes where all I want to do is play, and the temptation of the Cottage Living expansion is seriously tempting me to stick with it long after I would normally burn out. I can grow pumpkins! Did you see that rainbow cow in the trailer? Did you hear Japanese Breakfast in Simlish? EA may be one of the games industry’s most mustache-twirling villains and the cottagecore fad may have diminished somewhat but I feel sufficiently pandered to and will almost certainly be purchasing this expansion.

Anyway, let’s get on to the news! (more…)
