Q&A: November 2020

Welcome to the first of what will hopefully become a monthly feature, in which I invite my S-Rank Patrons to submit some questions for me to mull over, then I answer them in a video at the end of the month!

We kick off this month with a series of four interesting and varied questions that cover my workflow (and workload), plus my all-important opinions on both the Shantae and Super Mario series.

Enjoy the video below, and don’t forget to subscribe on YouTube for more. If you’d like to be part of the next Q&A, sign up to become an S-Rank Patron at my Patreon page here: https://patreon.com/petedavison

Hello everyone! Hope you’re well. I’ve been enjoying the new Lynx collections for the Evercade this weekend — expect some articles and videos about those very soon.

As we head towards December and a potentially confusing holiday season, it’s business as usual here at MoeGamer Towers. I likely won’t be doing a full MoeGamer Awards for the whole month this year, however; with the majority of my attention being heaped on the Atelier series (and a fair amount still left to go!) I don’t want to do a bunch of awards that are nothing but Atelier games. Though I have written about a fair few other bits and pieces over the year, too, so there will be some awards posts along the way — maybe one a week. We’ll see.

Anyway, enough blathering about things that haven’t happened yet — you’re here to find out what you might have missed in the last week. So let’s take a look!

Waifu Wednesday: VShojo

Virtual YouTubers, or VTubers for short, are big business right now, having come from humble beginnings to the worldwide phenomenon they are today.

While the launch of VTuber agency Hololive’s English branch brought the phenomenon to a more mainstream Western audience, a lot of English-speaking VTubers have been beavering away independently on their own projects, quietly building up their own fanbases and developing their own distinct styles.

Now, several of them have come together to form the first US-based VTuber talent agency, under the leadership of broadcaster, streamer and founding Twitch staffer Justin “TheGunrun” Ignacio and YouTuber Phillip “MowtenDoo” Fortunat. Let’s take a look!

Morning everyone! Wasn’t feeling too hot this weekend just gone (still not feeling too hot, to be honest) so this kind of slipped my mind, but here we are now!

You may have noticed a few “From the Archives” posts popping up this week. This is due to the recent news that the entire staff of my former place of employment, USgamer, has been laid off, and the future of the site is uncertain. With that in mind, I wanted to ensure that I preserved some of the pieces I wrote during my time there that I was most pleased with — and which are still relevant.

You’ll see more of these in the coming weeks and months, so keep an eye out for them, especially if you missed them first time around! In the meantime, let’s check out what you might have missed in the last week.

Happy Sunday everyone, and I hope you’re all doing well today. It’s been a relatively uneventful week here at MoeGamer Towers, though I am very pleased to welcome two new Patrons to the fold. If you want to join them and be super-awesome, check out my Patreon page.

Some of you may have noticed a few ads appearing here and there on MoeGamer. This is something I’ve wanted to avoid doing for as long as possible, but I’m at a point where certain things on the site do such good daily traffic it seems silly not to be able to get a bit of income from it. With that in mind, I’m running a short experiment to see exactly how much I could stand to earn from a bit of advertising on the site. Said ad income will, of course, be invested directly back into the site — and if the ads prove to be obtrusive or annoying, I’ll switch them off. Please also let me know if you see anything inappropriate!

Thank you for your understanding on that — though I must say when I raised this on Twitter the other day, everyone was surprisingly positive about it anyway, so perhaps I was overthinking things! Anyway, suffice to say nothing will change about what I do here; this will remain a strictly clickbait- and hatebait-free zone — it’s just now I might be able to cover a few expenses a little easier! We’ll see. Anyway, enough of that, let’s get on with looking at what you might have missed in the last week!

Good morning everyone! I have a podcast to edit, but I thought I’d get this done before I spend all day editing and end up too exhausted to write anything coherent at 11pm. So here we are!

It’s been a pretty eventful week for world events, huh? And I suspect the chaos isn’t quite over as yet, but at least things are moving along in one way or another. I’d like to remind everyone that you’re all welcome here if you want a break from the barrage of noise that is the rest of the Internet; I’m just here to talk about good ol’ video games, so come hang out and chat about what I’ve been writing about this week!

And on that note, let’s check out exactly what I have been writing about this week; hit the jump to explore what you might have missed.

Hello everyone! Hope you’re having as pleasant a weekend as can be had in these trying times.

Here in the UK, we’re about to enter a second “lockdown” period — supposedly for a month, but judging by the widespread idiocy on social media I suspect it’s going to last for a whole lot longer than that. Still, I’m not too worried; staying inside just means more time to play games, write about them and make videos. Which means more stuff for you (yes, you) to enjoy. Also my day job paid for a nice chair, so now I have a nice chair, too.

Leaving all that aside for now, though, let’s take a look at what you might have missed in the last week!

Happy weekend, everyone! Hope you’ve all had a fine time. I’m just coming off a week off from the day job so I’ve got lots of things I actually want to do done, which is a nice feeling. Back to the daily grind tomorrow, though… boo.

There’s been some interesting stories this week, probably the most notable of which is the sordid history behind the Golden Axed prototype Sega put up on Steam for a limited period. But let’s also not forget the guy from the Google Stadia team who thought telling Twitter that streamers should pay licensing fees for the games they stream would be in any way a good idea. He’s been very quiet ever since.

Anyway, that aside, let’s check out what you might have missed in the last week!

Good morning everyone! Sorry for the lack of one of these last weekend, but I was super-busy and ended up not finding the time. You can enjoy a bumper edition today to make up for it.

Life has been continuing pretty much as usual here at MoeGamer Towers, with the Atelier MegaFeature continuing apace. We’re just wrapping up Atelier Totori on the site right now; next up is Atelier Meruru, which I’ve already finished my replay of. I’m currently enjoying Atelier Lulua: The Scion of Arland a great deal, and am looking forward to writing about that.

Anyway. Enough talk! Let’s see what you might have missed in the last couple of weeks.

Good evening everyone! I’ve just finished editing a monster episode of The MoeGamer Podcast, which should be with you tomorrow assuming my computer doesn’t explode overnight while rendering or anything.

I joke, but on more than one occasion I have come downstairs of a morning to discover my computer had forgotten what these mysterious things called “hard drives” or “Microsoft Windows” were, so I probably shouldn’t tempt fate. Anyway, all being well, there will be a podcast for your eyes and ears to enjoy tomorrow.

In the meantime, let’s look back at what you might have missed this week.
