Hello again everyone. It’s the end of another week and the spectre of Monday is looming up on us, but never fear, for I have some reading and viewing material to entertain you!
There’s also a brand new episode of The MoeGamer Podcast coming up tomorrow, so you have that to look forward to, as well. It isn’t all doom and gloom!
Without further ado, let’s look at what you might have missed this week…
Delving Into Kirby and the Rainbow Paintbrush #2 – Another look into Kirby’s Wii U outing, this time with a particular focus on the interesting “claymation” style in which the game is presented.
First Look: Neverinth – A promising looking game that combines randomly generated dungeons with weighty stamina-management combat, Norse mythology and an attractive, all-female cast. Out now in Early Access!
Warriors Wednesday: Shu on Wu – In this week’s Warriors Orochi mission, the Shu forces cross paths with the Wu bros as the former attempts to track down the missing Liu Bei.
Waifu Wednesday: Yumi – My, uh, “interviews” with MoeGamer’s mascots continue with Yumi, the “quiet one”.
Our World is Ended: Introduction – Kicking off a brand new Cover Game feature with a first look at Red Entertainment’s sci-fi tale, Our World is Ended, and the impressive pedigree behind it.
New Game Plus: King and Knight – Rorona jumps headfirst into the third and final year of her assignments in our New Game Plus run through Atelier Rorona DX. Some mysteries get a little closer to being solved!
Atari A to Z
This week we have an Atari fanboy’s dream game for 8-bit, a snot-encrusted arcade adventure inspired by a children’s TV character for ST, and my mother’s favourite stress reliever from Atari Flashback Classics.
Cool Stuff By People Who Aren’t Me
I am a proud Patron of Paul “Mr Biffo” Rose, the Cheap Show podcast and The Game Chasers, because all of them put out great content that is worth your support. The Game Chasers are working on a movie, too; be sure to check out their Kickstarter if you’re a fan.
Check out some examples of what these fine folks have been up to here:
And let’s take the usual spin around the WordPress Reader to see what’s been going on this week!
Virtual Collector: Top 5 Resident Evil 2 Versions I’d Like to Own (Hundstrasse) – Hundstrasse likes Resident Evil 2, as you’ll probably know if you’ve checked out some of my previous links to his work.
A history of Vita games: Developer Spotlight – Code Mystics (kresnik258gaming) – Few people know more about the Vita than Kresnik. This series of Developer Spotlights explores some of the most prolific supporters of the little handheld that could over the years.
Do First Impressions Still Matter? (DJMMT’s Gaming & More Blog) – djmmtgamechangerdoc ponders this revolting age of “live service” games we live in, and asks whether or not a game needs to make a good first impression any more, when it can just be “improved” over time?
We Happy Few (The Late Night Session) – The Night Owl posts a thoughtful and interesting review of this intriguing but flawed dystopian adventure that doesn’t quite sound like it knows what it wants to be.
A Post About Reviews (Mechanical Anime Reviews) – Scott has some musings on the subject of reviews and how they should be handled. As well as the article itself, there’s some great discussion in the comments.
That’s that for another week then! Please look forward to a new episode of The MoeGamer Podcast tomorrow, and have a wonderful week. Or at least a faintly tolerable one. Good luck out there!
