Waifu Wednesday: Neptune - Assuming it arrives on time, I’m hoping to cover Idea Factory’s new game Death End Re;Quest as the next Cover Game feature here on MoeGamer. In the meantime, it occurs to me that in previous Waifu Wednesday installments we have covered many of the characters from throughout Iffy’s Neptunia series (including Vert, Blanc, Uni, Noire, Nepgear, … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Neptune

The One-Liner Challenge - Time for a Community tag post! This one looked like a particularly fun one, and after the lovely Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime specifically requested me to do one about games, who was I to refuse?

Waifu Wednesday: IF and Compa - I can’t in good conscience separate these two, so it’s a two-hander for this week’s Waifu Wednesday as we give thanks for the lovely IF and Compa.

They’re an inseparable … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: IF and Compa
Waifu Wednesday: Noire - Noire is a consistently popular member of the Neptunia cast, and for a variety of reasons. For one, she personifies the range of consoles that have, to date at the time of writing, played exclusive host to the games in the series: Sony’s PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4, with her younger sister Uni representing Sony … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Noire
Waifu Wednesday: Nepgear - A month of coverage for a Neptunia game is as good a reason as any to celebrate my favourite series waifu and indeed joint-favourite waifu of all time (alongside Amane from Grisaia). Yes, it’s Nepgear, the long-suffering sister of series protagonist, reluctant and self-conscious protagonist of her own games (Hyperdimension Neptunia mk2 and its subsequent remake Hyperdimension … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Nepgear
What’s in the Box: Cyberdimension Neptunia – 4 Goddesses Online - After a slightly longer wait than expected due to a printing error with the soundtrack CDs, the limited editions for Cyberdimension Neptunia: 4 Goddesses Online are finally here. As with most of Idea Factory International’s releases, it’s a substantial but affordable release containing a nice selection of goodies — some practical, some purely to go “ooooh” … Continue reading What’s in the Box: Cyberdimension Neptunia – 4 Goddesses Online
Waifu Wednesday: Vert - Everyone has a favourite in the Neptunia cast, but even if she’s not top of your list, it’s hard to dislike Vert. The blonde-haired, big-breasted goddess of Leanbox personifies Microsoft’s Xbox platform as well as embodying the anime trope of “beautiful foreigner” thanks to her physical characteristics. And as with the rest of the Neptunia cast, there’s … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Vert
