The Definitive Game Foods Menu, Part One

The Definitive Game Foods Menu, Part One

We here at Sidequest are a hungry bunch. That’s why we’ve brought you such important and groundbreaking series as Eat Your Games and Chip Chat—we love games, we love a snack, so why not combine the two?

But what we haven’t done yet is pit our favorite gaming snacks against one another. So we bring you an important question: what gaming food would you most like to eat, and why? Help us design a menu for our Patrons, and nominate your favorite gaming foods in the comments! (more…)

GYGO: Discord Users Say No-Fucking-Thanks’ to NFT Integration

Welcome to GYGO, our weekly news roundup, hosted by me, your humble editor in chief with a sinus infection! I bring the sinus infection up only because it means I’ve had less energy and more dizziness than usual, which means I’ve been wanting to spend my time playing games that simply do not ask a lot of me. Thankfully, the last game I pulled out of my game jar was The Lost Art of Innkeeping, which you also have if you purchased the itch.io anti-racism bundle last year. It’s a delightful little innkeeping sim, but what I really love is that I literally just have to click on things. I click to move. I click to interact. I can play it while holding a cup of sinus relief tea under my nose because all I have to do is move my mouse and click with the other hand. I can play it without issues on my definitely-not-for-gaming laptop. Is this… the perfect game? Time well tell.

Anyhow, let’s get into less than perfect things, because gaming news is always happening and it’s never all that great. (more…)

GYGO: I Just Wanna Ride Prince Sidon onto Death Mountain

Good morningtimes, fellow co-pilots in this thing we call life. It’s time again for your favorite day of the week: Wednesday! What better day is there than GYGO day?? Jokes aside, a lot happened this week. Nintendo has been sued for defective Joy-Con controllers, two former Doom and Wolfenstein developers have opened a no-crunch-allowed game studio called Bad Yolk, and my personal favorite:

GYGO: Pokémon Sword and Shield, Ping Systems, and RIP Vita

Happy Wednesday! What have you been playing lately? Like many in the Sidequest community, I’ve given Apex Legends a try. I like the ping system that makes it easier for players to communicate with their squad without using voice chat (more on the ping system and accessibility below). I also started Destiny 2 because I’m constantly in search of a single-player first-person shooter that I can enjoy when I don’t want the stress of multiplayer (which is most of the time). Let us know on Twitter what you’re playing right now! (more…)

Get Your Game On: Cure Your Plagiarism, Layoff, and Freeze Blues With Game Trailers

Happy Wednesday! This week, I have the most important news of all: I played a video game, folks. Not only did I play a video game—I beat one. I have finally finished Shadow of the Colossus, and boy howdy, was that ever a video game, eh? The last colossus drew some never-before-heard curses out of my mouth. It’s an excellent game, but I could write an entire essay on how awful that last colossus felt to fight and how yes, I do get the point, but as we discussed in English class, mimesis isn’t actually the best method to get a point across. Or I could just… play another video game!

Anyway, how about some news? (more…)
