GYGO: What a Week, Huh

Hello and welcome to Get Your Game On. I’m Maddi, your host for this week, and I’m tired. Here in the United States, we’ve been experiencing a particularly horrifying onslaught of events over the last several months, from the likely end of Roe v.

If you have cash to spare, GoFundMe has created a central hub of verified fundraisers raising money in support of families who lost loved ones in the shooting at Ross Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas.

I’ve also been playing a lot of real-life Tetris after moving a few weeks ago, and, to be honest, I prefer the digital version!

Hello and welcome to GYGO! I’m Kael, your local good hunter, and I’ve been spending a lot of my time chilling with the doll in Bloodborne this week. That is, until i got distracted by Control‘s AWE DLC, which I’m now deep in. In between I’ve also found the time to pick up embroidery, which is actually super fun. Anyway between my thousand hobbies I also found some great, and not so great, news for this week! (more…)
