The Week on MoeGamer
Hello everyone, be you Patron, prospective Patron or just casual follower. Here's the weekly roundup of what you might have missed this week on MoeGamer, along with a video version of this week's Cover Game article on Fate/stay night's Fate route.

Puzzler Essentials: Cleopatra Fortune
An underappreciated puzzler from Taito, this super-cute puzzler features an enjoyable variation on Tetris-style line-busting gameplay along with one of Zuntata's most formidable earworms.

Taito Essentials: Elevator Action Returns
I've been on a bit of a Taito kick recently after grabbing Taito Legends and Taito Legends 2 for PS2 -- both of which are great compilations, by the way -- so expect a lot more retrospectives on Taito stuff in the coming weeks. This week, we look at the all but forgotten sequel to Elevator Action.

Waifu Wednesday: Peridot
I discovered Puchi Carat as part of the Taito Legends 2 compilation and subsequently grabbed the PS1 release, too. The character Peridot was immediately striking, primarily for her outright sexiness, but also for the surprisingly detailed lore that accompanies Puchi Carat as a whole.

Fate/stay night: Oneself as an Ideal
The first of Fate/stay night's three routes focuses primarily on Saber. Here's an in-depth exploration of that route, and what we learn along the way. See the video attached to this post for a video version of this article!

PS2 Essentials: Ace Combat: Distant Thunder
The fourth Ace Combat game, the first Ace Combat on PS2 and still an absolutely spectacular experience today, Distant Thunder (or Shattered Skies as it was known elsewhere in the world) is an incredible flight action game from Namco. Let's hope Ace Combat 7 lives up to its legacy.
