GYGO Mobile: Mobile Games News by a Person Who Has Never Played Fortnite

Hello from your favorite trash mobile gamer! I’m here to bring you the latest news in the mobile gaming sphere, despite never having played Fortnite or Genshin Impact. 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: WNBA in NBA 2K20, Pokémon Get Poké Jobs, and Black Ops Rumors

Happy Wednesday! What have you been playing lately? I bought Fire Emblem: Three Houses today so I’ll be starting that soon—more on Three Houses below!

I also started my second playthroughs of Night in the Woods and Firewatch. This time in NitW, I’m choosing to hang out more with Gregg.

Here’s recent news that’s been on our minds, and check back every Wednesday for more on the latest news in games! (more…)
