Ten days until Christmas! Are you ready? I am, after a flurry of Amazon shopping earlier.

I’m likely going to be taking a few days off from MoeGamer during the holiday season, so from the week after next onwards (i.e. the week that begins with Christmas) updates may be a little intermittent, but I’ll be back on a normal schedule by the new year at the very latest. And with any luck, if my Christmas plans come to fruition, there may be a very special “Episode X” of The MoeGamer Podcast to enjoy — though no promises in that regard just yet.

Anyway, that’s all in the future. What’s been happening in the immediate past? Hit the jump to see what you might have missed this week.

I actually remembered to do this on Saturday like I’m “supposed” to this week. Go me!

Well, Christmas is well and truly on the way now. The MoeGamer Awards 2018 are underway, celebrating the games and experiences I’ve had over the course of the last year, my house is festooned with decorations (Patrons will know all about this already!) and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is out.

Life ticks ever onwards, however. Hit the jump to see what you might have missed this week.

Quick Patreon Update

Hello folks, a full post will be following later today but I just wanted to share a quick update with you.

Those of you who have been following me for a while will know that I used to run a daily personal blog that I updated every single day for 2,541 days. I’ve been missing that as a daily activity recently… so I figured why not combine it with what I’m doing now?

Rather than clogging up MoeGamer with personal posts, I’ve decided to make it a Patreon reward. Pledge $1 or more per month and you can not only support my work here on MoeGamer and help keep the lights on, you can also get to know me a bit better via exclusive updates that only you (yes, you! And, err, a few others, but mostly you!) can enjoy.

Drop by my Patreon page to find out more about how your money helps MoeGamer and Atari A to Z, and to sign up for my updates. Thank you in advance for your support!

Hello again, dear reader. Are you ready for Christmas? I’m not. But then it’s only just December, so despite what popular culture and The Shops would have you believe, it’s only just now getting into the Christmas period.

I’ve been working hard to get the Project Zero series done and dusted and I’m pleased and proud to say that it is finally done! This week saw the final installment of the articles about this fascinating and unusual survival horror series, and I’m delighted that I’ve finally taken the time to enjoy it in its entirety — and will be continuing to enjoy its various postgames over the course of the New Game Plus video series.

That now leaves me some free time for the MoeGamer Awards 2018 throughout December — I still want your suggestions, by the way! — as well as the opportunity to get a head start on whatever I’ll be covering next year. Question is… where to begin?

Looking Forward

I’m still beavering away on the fifth Project Zero game to finish off this current (rather longer than anticipated!) Cover Game feature, so I thought now would be a fine time for an update and a look forward to 2019.

In particular, I wanted to highlight (and in some cases reiterate) my plans for the site as a whole, share a few things I’m interested in looking at in detail next year, and hear what you might be most interested in seeing over the course of 2019, too.

So let’s take those things one at a time after the jump!

Whew! Another busy week, and I feel like it’s only going to get busier as we get closer and closer to Christmas.

Still, one thing many of us have to look forward to is the impending release of Super Smash Bros. Ultimate for Switch… you just, uh, might want to stay off Twitter for a bit, as those bloody dataminers are at it again. If you want to enjoy some pleasant surprises from the game as actual surprises, consider yourself warned!

Another thing you have to look forward to that dataminers can’t ruin is the continued light and joy my work here and on YouTube undoubtedly brings to your life. So let’s take a moment to recap what you might have missed out on this week!

Another week has passed. I won’t lie, I’m still feeling the lingering mental, emotional and physical effects of the last few weeks’ stress… but things are OK-ish for now.

Probably the most exciting thing that has happened is I bought myself yet another little Chinese box to sit under my TV to go with my (surprisingly excellent for the price) upscaler and HDMI splitter (for recording PS3 and PSTV). This one allows me to listen to the TV audio through headphones, which means when I’m recording videos (or streaming, if I ever do that) I can now actually listen to console game sounds instead of just having to turn the audio right down!

You’re hopefully here because you want to know what you might have missed here on MoeGamer and from my other projects this week, though. So hit the jump and we’ll take a look.
