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…)

GYGO: Activision Blizzard Lawsuit Is Expanded and Fortnite Opens a Civil Rights Exhibition

Content warning: mention of sexual harassment and misconduct, toxic work environments, and human rights violations in Palestine.

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On. My name is Zainabb and I wrote this week’s GYGO while my tiny cat made lots of stinky yawns next to me, reminding me to buy dental treats. This week’s news is also a little stinky, with some absurdity chucked in for good measure (thank you, games industry). Please take care of yourself and remember to brush your teeth. (more…)

GYGO: Assault Allegations, Twitch Harassment, and, Also, Imposters

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Kael, an apparently dedicated journalist, and I braved a typhoon to bring you this week’s news! I mean, I stayed in my house the whole time, but there was some massive thunder happening while I researched this week’s events. Aside from surviving the tropical summer, I was able to play some Mass Effect Legendary Edition and even started streaming my first game in Japanese. Let just say, if you’re looking for a great entry level Japanese game (okay maybe lower intermediate level), Animal Crossing has your back!

Anyway, here’s the news! (more…)

GYGO: Marvel’s Avengers, Black Ops Cold War, Sims 4 Star Wars Pack, and More

Happy Wednesday! What games are you playing lately? I bought Marvel’s Avengers, which released last week, and can’t wait to start playing it today. I’m mostly excited to play as Kamala Khan, but I’m curious how the other Avengers’ powers will be used as well. I’ve been playing a lot of Skyrim on Switch, especially the Thieves Guild questline.

GYGO: Epic Games vs. Apple and Google, Twitch Copyright Strikes, and More

Happy Wednesday! What games are you playing lately? I’ve been playing Skyrim on Switch a lot, which has been a completely different experience from my hundreds of hours playing Skyrim with mods on PC. I always played Skyrim with godlike abilities including extraordinary health, really high jumping, and a spell to unlock doors and chests without lock picking. I also miss mods that introduced custom houses into the world, like modern apartments, cute treehouses, and massive palaces. Besides Skyrim, I’m also playing Stardew Valley, The Division 2, Destiny 2, and Elder Scrolls Online. Feel free to tweet at me if you want to talk about any games!
