The MoeGamer Podcast: Episode 16 – Welcome to 2019!

Hello! Welcome back to the first episode of The MoeGamer Podcast for 2019, featuring my good self and my good friend Chris Caskie of MrGilderPixels.

Or you can hit the jump to watch or listen to today’s episode right here on MoeGamer.

With it being the start of the year, we didn’t want to discuss anything too heavy, so this is a fairly breezy episode.

We kick off with some discussion of recent news, including Ys IX: Monstrum Nox and a few interesting rumblings from a number of developers around Japan. Imageepoch might be making a comeback, it seems, and Another Eden, a cool-looking mobile RPG from some of the creative minds behind some all-time classics, is coming West.

Then we move on to a discussion of what we’ve been playing recently, including Fist of the North Star: Lost Paradise, the Atelier Arland Trilogy, Diablo III, Atari Flashback Classics and more.

And finally we have a chat about our most anticipated games of 2019, including Death End Re;Quest, Dragon Marked for Death and plenty of others besides. Hope you enjoy! And, as always, if there’s a topic you’d like to see/hear us cover, please do feel free to let us know.

  1. Oh, so they’re releasing a new Ys game? It didn’t seem that long ago when Ys VIII came out. I’ll definitely be looking forward to that. Recently, I’ve been attempting to marathon the series with the intent to review every single entry. Being such a long-running series, it will be interesting to see how it evolved over the years firsthand. So far, I’ve completed the first three games, and now I’m on one of the games labelled Ys IV. It’s quite confusing, but there are indeed apparently two Ys IVs – one on the Super Famicom and one on the TurboGrafx-CD. Neither were released in the West, though there was apparently a remake of both released in 2012.

      1. I ended up playing the SNES version because that was the easiest one for me to get. I personally didn’t think it was all that great; in fact, between the first three games I felt it to be by far the weakest one. I do intend to play Oath in Felghana. Because it apparently provides a vastly different experience, it will get a separate review from the original.

        1. Yeah, that’s why I mention it — old-school III is regarded as one of the weakest in the series, but Oath in Felghana is one of the best, particularly of that distinct era that comprises Ys VI, Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin. (I recommend playing those three games in that order to see the evolution of the formula!)
