The Week on MoeGamer
Morning everyone! Hope you're well, and that the Black Friday sales didn't make too much of a dent in your wallet. Kinda sucks that it all goes down just before payday, huh? I guess that is what credit cards are for.

Anyway, monetary woes aside, let's take a look back over the week just gone and see what you might have missed on MoeGamer this week.

Shmup Essentials: Raiden V
A new shoot 'em up with a physical release for modern consoles? Say it ain't so! Well, it is so, and it's pretty sweet, too -- though Raiden veterans may find a few aspects of the presentation require a bit of an adjustment period. Make no mistake, Raiden V is an authentically challenging arcade-style shmup, with some excellent console-specific features added to the mix to make it an awesome time.

Visual Novel Maker: The Breath of Life
If you've picked up Degica's Visual Novel Maker recently, it's probably clear that while it's a fairly easy to use application, the sheer amount of options can be overwhelming. Here we take a look at a common task you might want to accomplish: creating your own characters rather than using the predefined "STARS" provided.

Waifu Wednesday: Athena 2.0
The endearingly stupid Athena 2.0 from the Rance series is this week's waifu. We look at where she came from and what she means to the series' brutish protagonist.

Puzzler Essentials: Lumines
PSP launch title Lumines is just as fresh and thrilling today as it was back when it was first released. We take a look back on this gorgeous synaesthesia-inspired puzzle game from Mizuguchi and Q Entertainment. Shinin', shinin', shinin'...

Visual Novel Maker: How to Look Fontastic
Once you've created your own characters to put in your game, you'll probably want to customise the experience in some other ways. Here we take a look at a simple change that can have a profound impact on the overall aesthetic: changing the font, with a bonus introduction to the Script Editor and included resources.

That's it for this week! I'm frantically trying to finish Rance VI at the moment so I can do a writeup next week, then there'll be the other usual good stuff alongside that, including more Visual Novel Maker tutorials.

Thank you, as ever, for your ongoing support, be it through monetary donations here on Patreon or social support on Twitter, Facebook and WordPress through likes, comments and shares.
