Hello everyone! It’s the end of of another week, so you know what time it is — weekly roundup time!

Things have been proceeding well at the new day job — be sure to stop by Rice Digital if you haven’t already, as it’s a great place to hang out if you’re fans of Asian video games and other forms of popular entertainment. And we’ve got some super-cool stuff coming up in the next few weeks and months to tie in with some big releases! Please look forward to it.

In the meantime, though, let’s check out what you might have missed this week in the various places I’ve been Doing Things Online…

Good evening everyone! I have some exciting news that you may not know if you didn’t see on Twitter: I’m now the site editor of Rice Digital, which you can find at https://ricedigital.co.uk.

This is an actual proper day job that I’m getting paid for, so you’ll be seeing plenty of my stuff over there in the daytime — be sure to follow for the latest updates! MoeGamer won’t be going anywhere, though; the focus of both Rice and MoeGamer is quite different despite the overlapping subject matter, so you’ll still see stuff in both places. I have that Atelier MegaFeature to finish, after all!

In simple terms, you’ll likely see more “current” stuff on Rice, while MoeGamer will continue to deep-dive into stuff that’s been around for a while. Between the two, you should find everything you’d ever want to know about RPGs, visual novels, retro games and everything in between. So let’s take a look at what you might have missed this week!

Good evening! I hope you’ve all had a pleasant weekend. It’s been pretty relaxed around here — I got a few videos done, but for the most part it’s been pretty chilled out.

I have some significant life changes coming up next week that hopefully won’t affect the stuff I’m doing here on MoeGamer and YouTube — it’s unlikely to, but just wanted to mention it just in case posting is a bit sporadic for whatever reason! Not in a position to be able to talk further about it right now, but suffice to say for now that it is a good life change. More soon. Perhaps.

Anyway, mysterious teases aside, there is a review of the week to deliver! So hit the jump and let’s check out what you might have missed.

A late one today! I’ve been podcast editing all day, in my defence, but with it being “back to work” tomorrow I wanted to make sure I got the weekly roundup done before I went to sleep!

So it is a brand new year once again, and after the chaotic nonsense of 2020, I think everyone is keen for a fresh start. It’ll continue to be business as usual around here, though — so expect more coverage of overlooked, underappreciated and retro games from over the years!

Posting schedule has been a bit all over the place over the holiday period, but hit the jump to see what you might have missed in the last week or so!

Happy New Year! (2021 Edition)

Happy new year to you all! What a year it was, too, eh? Hopefully you all had some sort of opportunity to let your hair down a bit last night — while staying safe (in every sense of the word) of course.

I stayed in and played original Xbox games while my wife played Jackbox Party Pack with some friends she hasn’t had the opportunity to speak to, let alone see, for a very long time now. We also had a Chinese takeaway, much like last year. I am 100% fine with these arrangements.

I’m not going to spend too long talking about stuff today, but I do want to outline a few things I have planned for the year coming up. Hit the jump to find out more!

The MoeGamer Top 10 of 2020

It’s New Year’s Eve! In fact, as I type this, it’s New Year’s Day in some places around the world, so if that’s the case, uh, happy new year, and I hope 2021 looks better than the rancid 12 months we’ve all just endured.

As is tradition for video gaming-related websites, it is obligatory for me to declare some sort of “game of the year” before 2020 ends, and as I’m someone who likes to be awkward and do things differently, I am counting “games of 2020” as “games I played and/or covered on MoeGamer in 2020” rather than necessarily “games that released in 2020”. My site, my rules — but hopefully you’ll find some fun things to check out along the way!

Hit the jump and let’s get started then — and note that these are (probably) in no particular order; I’m just noting them down as they come to mind!

Merry Christmas everyone! I hope you all had a restful holiday season and found yourself with some nice gifts… or at least some nice vouchers or cold, hard cash with which to treat yourselves!

With the world being as it is, we had a pretty quiet Christmas here, but it was still nice. We opened presents, had a nice dinner and then just chilled out for the rest of the day. Exactly what a good Christmas should be, so far as I’m concerned — no stress, no arguments, no rushing around, and lots of Sega Dreamcast.

There’s still been stuff happening on the site and over on YouTube, though, so let’s take a look at what you might have missed this week!

A Very Merry Christmas! 2020 Edition EX Plus Alpha

Hello everyone, and a very merry Christmas to you all, unless you celebrate something else around this time of year, in which case happy whatever that is.

2020 has been a big challenge for everyone, so I hope over this most festive of holidays you’re able to take a step back from the chaos in the world and have a day or two of pure relaxation and enjoyment — preferably with family and/or loved ones if you’re in a part of the world where that is something you’re allowed to do!

This week’s posting schedule is a bit wonky due to holidays and the like, but you can expect the next episode of the Atelier MegaFeature tomorrow! In the meantime, let’s do the obligatory Christmas Roundup Post! Join me after the jump for some festive funtimes.

Good evening everyone! Only a few more sleeps until Christmas, though it’s going to be a bit of a strange one for most people this year, I suspect — especially here in the UK where we’re dealing with Mutant Super Virus funtimes.

Anyway, there’s nothing like taking your mind off the killer virus in the air like some good old-fashioned video games, so that’s what I fully intend to continue providing you with over the holiday season. Articles and videos will continue as normal for the most part, though with Christmas itself being on a Friday I may take a break on that day and post the next part of the Atelier MegaFeature on either Thursday or Saturday. We’ll see.

But that is then, and this is now, so let’s see what you might have missed out on from the “then” in the other direction. Join me after the jump!

Greetings, humans, I hope you are well, and I hope you’ve had a pleasant week; I’ve actually had a rather good one, which is nice.

Christmas is fast approaching, so I hope you’re all stocked up on presents and aren’t having to brave the plague-ridden high streets to get the important people in your life some sort of tat they don’t need but which you thought they “might like”. If you’re struggling for ideas, consider an Evercade; they’re eminently affordable and there’s a massive library of retro classics to play on it now! Nonspon, or whatever the kids say; I just really like that thing.

Anyway, that aside, let’s check out what you might have missed in the last week! Join me after the jump.
