GYGO Mobile: Lady Gaga Corrects Her Spelling of Fortnite

GYGO Mobile: Lady Gaga Corrects Her Spelling of Fortnite

Hello again, mobile gamers! I have admittedly not been mobile gaming all that much in the past few weeks after a series of ridiculous events and being down with the flu for an entire week. Don’t get the flu! I had a flu shot and everything! Just don’t do it!! You’ll be so tired you won’t even be capable of disappearing into Baldur’s Gate 3. You’ll spend eight or so hours watching the first season of Bridgerton and feel unable to figure out why you did that even though you couldn’t stand Daphne. Just say no, folks.

Fellow GYGO writers have done an amazing job providing resources to learn more about the ongoing atrocities the Israeli government is committing against the people of the Gaza strip. In addition to the many resources they’ve provided for learning more and supporting individuals and organizations that provide aid to those in the region, I also recommend Operation Olive Branch, a compilation of links, fundraising opportunities, and more for people in need, and the Stop Gaza Genocide Toolkit, which contains action items and information you can visit and revisit as often as you like. I also find Crips for Palestine, a newsletter of digital actions for disabled people and allies written by our own Zainabb Hull, extremely helpful and informative.

Here’s what’s been going on in the world of mobile games while I wasn’t paying any attention whatsoever. (more…)

Generally, I think it’s not cute to be purposefully ignorant of something, but the sheer amount of trashy mobile games I play juxtaposed against my refusal to play the two biggest mobile games is in fact quite funny to me. I hope we all enjoy my struggle to explain what’s going on in the world of Fortnite. (more…)

GYGO: Everybody’s (Still) Getting Sued

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Kael, the ghost of news cycles past come back from the dead to marvel at the fact Activision Blizzard is literally never not up to some bull. Though maybe that is soon to be a thing of the past as Microsoft slowly devours them body and soul. Anyway, the news! (more…)

September Roundtable: Changing Seasons

September Roundtable: Changing Seasons

I can’t speak for the whole of Sidequest, but when I feel the first day of crisp autumn air or see the first morning with a dusting of frost, something changes in me. The transitory seasons are where it’s at, in my opinion, and while games may not have mastered the art of pumpkin-flavored everything or the itchiness of spring allergies, they nonetheless have done a pretty good job of exploring the beauty of seasonal changes. This month, we’re talking about gaming seasons—the literal and the figurative.

Content warning: mention of harassment and discrimination.

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On. My name is Zainabb and can we go a single week without a new episode in the Activision Blizzard saga? No. No, we can’t.

Remember to drink some water, take your meds, and have a nap if—like me—you’re completely exhausted all of the time. (more…)
