Visual Novels are one of the most iconic genres of Japanese games, and today we answer the eternal question: do you play or read them?

on May 7, 2018 2:20 PM

The WeebCast is our weekly podcast dedicated to all thing Japanese, and today you can listen to its fifth episode, focusing one of the most iconic genres of Japanese games, visual novels.

We talk about some of the games that left a lasting impression, and some that you might not know about, alongside the genre as a whole, and its many variations.

On top of that, our weeb hosts (yours truly and Staff Writer Emily Hobbs) talk about the latest Japanese game news, anime, and a few tidbits about Japanese geek culture in general.

As you may have heard while listening to the first episode (which was focused on Yoko Taro’s genius), DualShockers’ Weebcast is a weekly podcast dedicated to our love for JRPGs, visual novels, anime, manga, and Japan as a whole.

It embodies one of the pillars of DualShockers’ philosophy, as our site has always been built on the concept embracing our passions, which is why we have been striving to create a safe haven where gamers can be weeb as much as they want, and be absolutely proud of it.

Please do keep in mind that this podcast is still in an experimental phase. Constructive criticism and suggestions are absolutely welcome and encouraged, so please leave them in the comments below. You can also let us know which themes you’d like to see covered in upcoming episodes.

Now, without further ado, you can listen to the DualShockers’ Weebcast below, either on YouTube or Soundcloud. You can also listen on iTunes if you so wish.

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
