Project Zero: Scream for the Camera - Tecmo’s Project Zero — also known as Fatal Frame in the United States, and simply Zero in its native Japan — has always stood out. “Survival horror” is most certainly not what it once was, but even during its heyday in the late ’90s and early 2000s, Project Zero set itself apart by eschewing the blood, … Continue reading Project Zero: Scream for the Camera
Project Zero 2: Float Like a Butterfly - How do you follow an impressively creepy horror game about ghosts in the Japanese tradition? With more of the same, but different and/or better, of course. Project Zero 2: Crimson Butterfly began development shortly after its predecessor was completed, and eventually released for Japanese and North American PlayStation 2 players in late 2003, and for Europe … Continue reading Project Zero 2: Float Like a Butterfly
Project Zero 3: Sleep, Priestess, Lie in Peace - For me, a good horror game is hard work. I don’t mean that it’s a chore to play or anything like that; I mean that engaging with it to the fullest is a genuinely taxing experience from at the very least a mental perspective… and possibly a physical one too. As I sit here typing … Continue reading Project Zero 3: Sleep, Priestess, Lie in Peace
Project Zero 4: Touched by the Moon - And so it is that we come to the fourth installment in the Project Zero series: a game that never came West in an official capacity. Known as Zero: Tsukihame no Kamen in its native Japan and Mask of the Lunar Eclipse in the West following an ambitious (and successful) fan-translation project, this fourth game represented a number of … Continue reading Project Zero 4: Touched by the Moon
Project Zero 5: The Difference a Little Warmth Can Make - And so we come to what is, at the time of writing, the grand finale to the Project Zero series: Maiden of Black Water on Wii U. While the nature of the series means that it’s entirely possible we’ll see some more games in the future — and indeed unverified “my uncle works at Nintendo” … Continue reading Project Zero 5: The Difference a Little Warmth Can Make

New Game Plus: Five S – Project Zero #12 - This is it! This is what it all comes down to… what I’ve been training for. Will that tortuous Nightmare mode playthrough of Project Zero, along with finally clearing out that pesky ghost list, prepare me for a long-overdue S-rank clear of any of the missions in the game’s Battle mode? Will my epic battle against … Continue reading New Game Plus: Five S – Project Zero #12
New Game Plus: Nightmare Finale – Project Zero #11 - This is it! It’s nearly over! Yes, today we clear Nightmare mode on Project Zero for the first time. The last night in the game was actually a whole lot shorter than I remembered it being, but at least there’s only one wandering ghost to pick up on our ongoing quest to clean up the … Continue reading New Game Plus: Nightmare Finale – Project Zero #11
New Game Plus: Where’s My Head – Project Zero #10 - I think we’re over the worst in our Project Zero Nightmare mode playthrough! Today’s episode concerns the third “night” of the game, and unfolds surprisingly smoothly. There are only two “vanishing” ghosts to find in this chapter… but there are some tough fights ahead, so we’re certainly not in any sort of safe space just … Continue reading New Game Plus: Where’s My Head – Project Zero #10
New Game Plus: Eat Paralysey Camera Death – Project Zero #9 - No more fleeing children! That doesn’t mean we’re out of the woods in our Nightmare mode playthrough of the first Project Zero on PlayStation 2, however. There are still plenty of hostile ghosts just waiting to cover us in ectoplasm and have their wicked incorporeal way with us. Perhaps not necessarily in that order. Hit the jump … Continue reading New Game Plus: Eat Paralysey Camera Death – Project Zero #9
New Game Plus: Between the Kimonos – Project Zero #8 - Miku Hinasaki’s excellent adventure continues as we crawl through Chapter 2 of Project Zero in an attempt to fill out our Ghost List further. The ghosts we have to capture this time around are some of the trickiest in the game, but if you believe in yourself, you can do anything, anything! Eventually, anyway. Hit the … Continue reading New Game Plus: Between the Kimonos – Project Zero #8
The MoeGamer Awards 2018: The Shutterbug Award - The MoeGamer Awards are a series of “alternative” awards that I’ve devised in collaboration with the community as an excuse to celebrate the games, experiences and fanbases that have left a particular impression on me in 2018. Find out more here, but you’re out of time to leave suggestions, I’m afraid! — Any time you … Continue reading The MoeGamer Awards 2018: The Shutterbug Award
New Game Plus: I Hate It When They Run Away – Project Zero #7 - After last week’s mishaps, we get well and truly back on track with our quest to fill out that damn ghost list. Today we make a start on the second chapter of Project Zero on Nightmare difficulty, and encounter some of the most challenging to capture “wandering ghosts” in the game. While not hostile, you’ll still need … Continue reading New Game Plus: I Hate It When They Run Away – Project Zero #7

New Game Plus: I Got Holes in M’Ghost List – Project Zero #6 - Today we continue with Project Zero’s postgame… and I find myself afflicted with a curse through my own silly fault. Today we continue on with the first chapter of our Nightmare mode replay, attempting to keep an eye out for as many missing ghosts from the Ghost List as possible. Unfortunately, it seems, fate had … Continue reading New Game Plus: I Got Holes in M’Ghost List – Project Zero #6
New Game Plus: The Definition of Insanity – Project Zero #5 - That ol’ reliable quote about the definition of insanity being something along the lines of “doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results” is apparently widely attributed to Albert Einstein (and Far Cry 3), but it seems Einstein probably didn’t actually say it. It’s a good quote, though, and particularly applicable to … Continue reading New Game Plus: The Definition of Insanity – Project Zero #5

New Game Plus: Return to Himuro Mansion – Project Zero #4 - A little late for New Game Plus this week, I know, but I had to prioritise finishing off Maiden of Black Water, which I’m delighted to say I have now done. Please read my piece on it! In New Game Plus, it’s right back to the beginning of the Project Zero series for us as we kick … Continue reading New Game Plus: Return to Himuro Mansion – Project Zero #4
New Game Plus: Kirie Eleison – Project Zero #3 - Load up your film, kiddies, we’re going for another photography field trip. This time around, we take on the last tier of Project Zero’s Mission Mode, featuring battles against multiple ghosts at once and a rematch against the game’s final boss, Kirie. There are some great rewards on offer, but there are also some stiff challenges in … Continue reading New Game Plus: Kirie Eleison – Project Zero #3
New Game Plus: Don’t Call Him “Daddy” – Project Zero #2 - Today we continue to test my point-and-shoot skills as we crack on with Project Zero’s postgame. Having cleared ten of the challenges in Mission Mode, things are starting to get a whole lot more difficult now… and we have a destined encounter with the Himuro Family Master to look forward to. Will I survive an … Continue reading New Game Plus: Don’t Call Him “Daddy” – Project Zero #2
Waifu Wednesday: Project Zero Protagonists - It’s a group Waifu Wednesday this week, because the things I’m going to mention apply to the assembled ensemble cast of all the Project Zero games… well, those that I’ve played so far, anyway! At the time of writing this, I’m closing in on the end of the Japan-only (and fan-translated) fourth game for Wii, … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Project Zero Protagonists
New Game Plus: That One Perfect Shot – Project Zero #1 - Do you beat games? I do. Speaking to a lot of game-playing friends in person and online, it transpired that relatively few people I know seem to start a game and see it through to completion in the same way as I do — either playing a bit and then endlessly starting again to try … Continue reading New Game Plus: That One Perfect Shot – Project Zero #1
The MoeGamer Podcast: Episode 12 – Halloween Horrors - Pete and Chris chat about spoopy skeletons and things that go bump in the night in our special horror-themed Halloween 2018 episode. Plus the usual news and "what we've been playing" talk.
Around the Network - It’s been a fun, busy and productive week around the MoeGamer network! We kicked off the week with a bizarre PS2 driving game and a new episode of The MoeGamer Podcast, continued with a collaborative post in conjunction with Luminous Mongoose of Otaku Essays and Analyses, and wrapped things up with the next installment of … Continue reading Around the Network
The Top 5 Creepiest Enemies from Japanese Video Games - No, don’t worry, MoeGamer isn’t becoming a clickbait listicle site! I was approached by the charming and delightful Luminous Mongoose recently about producing a collaborative post on the subject of creepy enemies in Japanese video games. It is spoopy October, after all, and moreover this month’s Cover Game certainly offers plenty in the underpants-soiling department. … Continue reading The Top 5 Creepiest Enemies from Japanese Video Games
The MoeGamer Podcast: Episode 11 – Shadow of Silent Probotectravania in Time. Also Asterix - Pete and Chris get together to chat about old-school Konami... and how this somewhat fallen-from-grace publisher might be learning from some of its mistakes. Plus the usual news and "what we've been playing" segments.
Around the Network - Hello everyone! It’s the weekend again, so hurrah for that. Chris and I have spent the afternoon recording a new episode of the MoeGamer Podcast, so watch out for that on Monday, all being well.
