Around the Network

Hello again everyone! Hope you’ve all had a pleasant weekend and are enjoying the cosiness that the onset of autumn brings.

I’ve been busting my ass trying to beat Evenicle and it’s taken a little longer than I anticipated, but as I write this, I’m on the final chapter and closing in on the actual ending, so we’ll wrap things up once and for all with one more article either later today or (more likely) tomorrow.

After that we’ll be moving on to spooky funtimes for October with the Project Zero series, also known as Fatal Frame. But what else went on this week? Well, hit the jump and let’s review.


Last week saw the release of Nintendo and Cygames’ new mobile game Dragalia Lost, and I’ve been very pleasantly surprised how much I’ve been enjoying it in moment between Evenicle binges. As such, that’s one of the things that’s been occupying my attention on the site recently!

Here’s what you might have missed this week:

Sunday Driving: Pudding?! You Were Always So Quirky, Brian – Our time with Sonic & All-Stars Racing Transformed continues as I get a little distracted talking about Channel 4 comedy shows.

The MoeGamer Podcast: Episode 10 – Hype, Hype, Hooray! – Chris and I discuss the latest happenings in gaming and what we’ve been playing recently, before moving on to a nice chat about hype, reviews, Metacritic and how we temper our expectations (or not) when something new’s on the horizon.

Dragalia Lost: Making a Solid Start – New to Dragalia Lost, or new to mobile gacha games in general? Check out these hints and tips I’ve assembled to get you up and running as quickly as possible.

Waifu Wednesday: Princess King Boo – The Bowsette phenomenon continues apace, but Princess King Boo has become such a thing in her own right that I wanted to devote a whole article to her. So here it is!

Warriors Wednesday: Most Definitely Sorcery Bullshit – Our battle against the forces of Orochi continues as we make our way through the Samurai Warriors storyline of Warriors Orochi. This time around, we encounter… well, you can probably figure it out.

Dragalia Lost: What’s That Sound? It’s Daoko – If you’ve been playing Dragalia Lost, you’ve surely noticed its unusual and distinctive soundtrack. That’s the work of one Daoko, a young Japanese artist with an impressive track record considering her relatively tender years… and one hell of a talent for creating formidable earworms.

Atari A to Z

Both the Atari A to Z and the Atari ST A to Z video series continue this week, this time with Gorf for Atari 8-Bit, and Beyond the Ice Palace for Atari ST. Check them out below, and don’t forget you can follow the dedicated Atari A to Z site for just these videos… and perhaps some bonus content if I ever get around to it.

Videopac Games

I made a bit of time to do a couple of new writeups on Philips G7000 Videopac/Magnavox Odyssey 2 games this week. Here they are!

Videopac 20: Stone Sling
Videopac 22: Space Monster

It is very much appreciated if you’ve seen fit to help me out with donations either via Ko-Fi or Patreon, too — that money helps me pay expenses, pick up new stuff to cover and just generally makes me happy, too. I’ve been doing my best to create things people want to read and watch here — so to have people happy enough with what I do to want me to get paid for it is just wonderful. Thank you!

Anyway. Here’s to another fun week!
