Hello! Welcome, once again, to The MoeGamer Podcast, featuring my erotic baritone (so I’m told) along with the fine pipes of my good friend Chris Caskie of MrGilderPixels.
The MoeGamer Podcast is available in several places. You can subscribe to my channel on YouTube to stay up to date with both the video versions of the podcast and my weekly videos (including the Atari A to Z retro gaming series); you can follow on Soundcloud for the audio-only version of the podcast; you can subscribe via RSS to get the audio-only version of the podcast in your favourite podcast app; or you can subscribe via iTunes. Please do at least one of these if you can; it really helps us out!
Or you can hit the jump to watch or listen to today’s episode right here on MoeGamer.
In today’s episode, we provide our usual mix of news, what we’ve been playing lately and an in-depth topic, which today is the sprawling world of horizontally scrolling shoot ’em ups.
In the news, we have the upcoming new Pokemon game, along with PlatinumGames’ Astral Chain, Square Enix’s Oninaki, a few new bits and pieces about Ys IX, a brief tease of Rune Factory 5, PQube’s first original in-house IP Kotodama, a release date for Atelier Lulua, some moderately interesting news about Sting’s Department Heaven game Yggdra Union, some sad news about the dear old Vita, and a nugget about Kingdom Hearts.
Between us, we’ve only been playing a few things this week; Chris has been tackling Battle Chef Brigade, while I’ve been polishing off 428: Shibuya Scramble. And we’ve both been playing a ton of Dynasty Warriors 8.
As for horizontal scrollers… well, we both love the genre a whole lot, so we both have lots to say, including some highlights that you might not have come across in your own travels! We hope you enjoy the show.
Thanks for reading; I hope you enjoyed this article. I’ve been writing about games in one form or another since the days of the old Atari computers, with work published in Page 6/New Atari User, PC Zone, the UK Official Nintendo Magazine, GamePro, IGN, USgamer, Glixel and more over the years, and I love what I do.
