Shantae: You Stay - The Shantae series as a whole is a wonderful symbol of endurance, and of holding on to the things you believe in. I’m not talking about the narratives of the games themselves — though for sure this theme certainly makes an appearance numerous times throughout Shantae’s career to date — but rather the fact that … Continue reading Shantae: You Stay
Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Jumping Generations - An interesting aspect of the Shantae series is how its presentation and execution has evolved over time. While the first game, being released in the twilight years of the 8-bit Game Boy Color, represented the diminutive handheld being pushed to its absolute limits, the two subsequent installments in particular made a specific effort to be … Continue reading Shantae: Risky’s Revenge – Jumping Generations
Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse: What a Lovely Day to Have a Curse - There’s something really satisfying about the title “Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse”. It sounds like the sort of thing I’d have had on my bookshelf as a kid — part of a series I’d have almost certainly wanted to collect an entire set of. Remember books? They were pretty all right. Anyway, Shantae and the Pirate’s … Continue reading Shantae and the Pirate’s Curse: What a Lovely Day to Have a Curse
Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero – Beyond the Pixel - When I was growing up with computers and consoles in the early days of gaming, my dream of “what graphics will be like in the future” was not one of photorealism. Okay, I’ll admit, attempts at photorealism — particularly in games that tackled this challenge early on, such as flight simulators — impressed me a … Continue reading Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero – Beyond the Pixel

Waifu Wednesday: Sky - Well, after covering the titular heroine herself, her biggest rival and one of her best friends, it wouldn’t do to leave the other core female cast member of the Shantae series high and dry, would it? Sky has been a fixture in the Shantae series for as long as all the other main characters, and she’s had … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Sky
The MoeGamer Podcast: Episode 4 – Servant to the Gacha - A week later than originally intended, here’s the fourth episode of The MoeGamer Podcast! We’re a week late because last weekend I’d been struck down by some sort of hideous plague that made me want to go to bed at 2pm in the afternoon and just not get up for most of the weekend. Thankfully … Continue reading The MoeGamer Podcast: Episode 4 – Servant to the Gacha
Waifu Wednesday: Rottytops - I’m not sure what it is about characters that… aren’t quite human, but there’s something incredibly appealing about them. I’m not the only person to feel this way, either, as evidenced by the popularity of everything from catgirls (a relatively tame variant on humanity) to the full-on monstergirls found in something like the Monster Musume anime and … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Rottytops
Waifu Wednesday: Risky Boots - The Shantae series is effortlessly and consistently sexy. We’ve already talked about how the titular protagonist of the series exemplifies this perfectly, but the same is also true of a number of other characters throughout — most notably primary antagonist Risky Boots. Hell, even that name is kinda hot. Risky is also a great example of how … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Risky Boots
What’s In the Box: Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero Ultimate Day One Edition - Having missed out on the Limited Run releases of the last two Shantae games, I was damned if I was going to miss out on this one, particularly as it looked like actually rather a nice edition. And what do you know? It is! It was also no more expensive than buying a “normal” game, … Continue reading What’s In the Box: Shantae 1/2 Genie Hero Ultimate Day One Edition
Waifu Wednesday: Shantae - With the recent announcement of a release date for Shantae: 1/2 Genie Hero’s physical Ultimate Edition, I thought it was high time we showed the girl herself some love. She’s been the star of four separate games to date, as well as making guest appearances in a number of other titles such as Blaster Master Zero. … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Shantae
