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…)

GYGO: Game Events Go Online While Cops Crack Down on Esports

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Kael, your local can’t-play-a-modern-game-to-save-their-lifer, and I’ve spent this past week running through Chrono Trigger, which is just as good as I remember it. The way it makes use of the SNES’s limited resources absolutely blows me away sometimes. And luckily, being an old-style JRPG, I had plenty of time to look for this week’s gaming news while I waited for the turn-based combat to play out.

Enjoy! (more…)

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

Hello, and welcome to GYGO! I’m Kael, 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. This means I finally got a chance to get back into The Outer Worlds. It’s fun to shoot things good, and less fun to think about the presence of capitalism in space. A good experience all around.

GYGO: GameStop Layoffs, Twitch Moderates Breastfeeding, and the ESA Doxes Journalists

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Kael, your local gaming enthusiast, and I’m coming to you all the way from Japan to bring you the hottest gaming news. I recently moved to a small town in Kyushu, so I haven’t had much time to game, but I sure did get into some Stardew Valley on my collective 15 hours of travel time. (more…)
