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: I Got Holes in M’Ghost List - Today we continue with Project Zero’s postgame… and I find myself afflicted with a curse through my own silly fault.

Unfortunately, it seems, fate had … Continue reading New Game Plus: I Got Holes in M’Ghost List
New Game Plus: The Definition of Insanity - 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

There are some great rewards on offer, but there are also some stiff challenges in … Continue reading New Game Plus: Kirie Eleison

New Game Plus: That One Perfect Shot - Do you beat games? I do.

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 - Hello friends, and welcome to another installment of The MoeGamer Podcast!
