It’s the end of another week as we head onward into springtime, and I hope you’ve had a good one!

This week has seen the release of Konami’s Castlevania Anniversary Collection on various platforms, which I’ve been very excited about for some time now. I wish there was a packaged release of it, but I can’t complain too much at the value the download version offers. Watch out for some Castlevania-related articles in the coming weeks.

In the meantime, let’s have a look back over the week that was and see what you might have missed.

Waifu Wednesday: Yumi

You all seemed to enjoy getting to know MoeGamer site mascot Midori last week, so it’s high time we gave her best friend Yumi the opportunity to introduce herself.

Yumi, like Midori, has been part of MoeGamer since the very beginning in one form or another, and also appeared in the GameCast.

She doesn’t speak a lot of English, however, so Midori will be joining us to assist where necessary. Let’s see how this goes…

Another long weekend! I’m not complaining, though every one of these makes it harder and harder to go back to a full work week.

Lots to share this week: plenty of articles, a few updates on future plans, and the usual shenanigans from around the broader community.

So without further ado, let’s look back at what you might have missed this week…

Waifu Wednesday: Midori

It occurs to me that in five years of this site being A Thing, I’ve never really gone ahead and actually introduced the site’s mascots Midori, Yumi and Penelope.

I mean, yes, they all played a role in the GameCast project I undertook a while back (and am still keen to return to when I find the time and/or inclination!) but for those who didn’t play through all those episodes, chances are you may be wondering who these random girls who keep showing up on my pages are.

Well, let’s rectify that with a few interviews, shall we? Let’s begin with the site’s lead mascot, Midori.

Happy Birthday to Me (38) and MoeGamer (5)!

April 29, for those unaware, is both my birthday and the anniversary of MoeGamer’s first post. This year I am thirty- (counts on fingers) eight? And MoeGamer is five.

Those who have been following me for a while will know that the last five years — and beyond — have been full of plenty of ups and downs, for sure, but I’m extremely happy with what MoeGamer has grown into over the course of that time, and what I, personally, get out of putting so much time and effort into this site and my other creative projects.

I covered the story of how MoeGamer came about in detail back on the site’s third birthday, so do please go and read that retrospective if you’d like to know a bit of background. Today I’d instead like to ponder things that have happened in the last year or so. This last year in particular has been a very exciting one, as I started experimenting with lots of new ways of doing things. And I have no intention of slowing down or stopping any time soon!

G’day folks, and happy Easter! I hope you’re all having a suitably pleasant day, filled with however you choose to celebrate, if at all.

I write this after a delicious roast lamb lunch, and although the wife and I are still technically dieting, I’m pretty sure we can find a bit of room for some chocolate later. It’s what the Lord would have wanted.

Anyway! Let’s crack on with our usual rundown of what you might have missed this week, shall we?

Good day, friends! It’s time once again for another round-up post.

I’m trying desperately not to think about the fact I have to go back to the day job tomorrow after two wonderful weeks off, but at least I can do so with the confidence that I’ve got a lot of things prepped and ready for the coming weeks.

Hmm, no, that’s not really helping… I want my lie-ins! Oh well. Let’s see what you might have missed this week before I get too sad.
