Hello everyone! Hope you’re all having as pleasant a weekend as can be expected under the current circumstances.

It’s gone warm and summery here, but to be honest this is my least favourite kind of weather because I do not deal well with being too hot. It’s time to get all the windows open and get the fans blowing, I guess.

Anyway, enough of that very British babbling on about the weather; let’s take a look at what you might have missed in the last week.

Hello everyone! It’s the end of another week, or the beginning of another one, depending on how you look at it, and thus it’s time for the weekly roundup!

I’ve got one more week of the day job before a blissful week off. Hopefully my Evercade retro gaming handheld from Blaze will arrive in time for that, because you can expect a bunch of in-depth coverage on that system and its games once it’s in my hands! The Atelier MegaFeature will, of course, continue, but my intention is to provide detailed writeups on each and every one of the games available for Evercade — because in all cases, they’re relevant to all enthusiasts of gaming, not just those picking up the new system.

Anyway, that’s something to think about when we get to it. For now, we’ve got a week’s worth of happy funtimes to get through. So hit the jump and let’s get started!

Hello everyone, and I hope you’re all still surviving during these strange times in the world.

As you’ve seen, I’m just continuing to beaver away on stuff here just as I’ve always done, so it’s business as usual here on MoeGamer. I hope I’m at least providing some entertaining and informative reads and watches to take your mind off things right now!

Let’s check out what you might have missed in the last week or so.

It’s Our Birthday!

Yes, it’s April 29 once again, which means that I am a year older — 39 this time around — and so is MoeGamer!

Yep, this happy little nook tucked away in a corner of the Internet is six years old today, and over the course of those six years it’s been a gradual process of learning, growing, changing and adapting until you have what you see before you today. And doubtless the next six years will continue to see gradual change and evolution here without undermining the fundamental mission of the site: to celebrate our fantastic hobby of gaming, and particularly those parts of it that go overlooked or underappreciated.

For those interested in the story of how the site came to be in the first place, I invite you to enjoy this retrospective that I penned on the site’s third birthday. For today, some musings on why I do what I do, and why I feel independent creators like me continue to do important work.

Happy Sunday evening everyone! One of the worst parts of the week, when you know Monday is just around the corner, thereby meaning that you can’t really justify staying up all night playing video games or something.

Still, if you want something to take your mind off the impending drudgery of the working week, I’ve got you covered as always. There’s been some really great stuff this week that I’ve been delighted and excited to cover, so I hope you enjoy them.

So, then, without further ado, let’s review! That rhymes.

Happy New Year! (2020 Edition)

A very merry new year to all of you! I hope you had at least vaguely tolerable celebrations last night and that you aren’t suffering too much today.

I had a nice quiet one; I’ve never been one for big parties or anything, so the prospect of being out and about on a night where people are particularly inclined to get drunk and obnoxious was not in the slightest bit appealing. So I sat at home with my cats playing games, recording a few videos and enjoying a Chinese takeaway. Perfect.

Anyway, what with it being the first day of the new year, now seems like a prime time to talk about my intentions for the year coming up, so let’s do just that after the jump!

Christmas is once again creeping up on us, but thankfully thanks to the magic of online shopping, I’m already done with buying presents.

That, of course, means plenty of time for enjoying a variety of wonderful games, and celebrating many of the delightful experiences I’ve had over the last year. That is the thinking behind The MoeGamer 2019 Awardsthe third year in which I’ve thought up a variety of “alternative awards” (in collaboration with the community) to celebrate the things I’ve played and/or covered in the last year.

And, because I wanted to both play it and write about it, we’re interspersing the awards with a look at Pokémon Sword and Shield. Lots to be getting on with, so let’s check out what you might have missed this week.
