Bullet Heaven Episode 185 - Super Hydorah

ocomalito is a name that nobody with a PC shouldn't know. We took a look at the insanely good Garoudan a while back in our first and only "Quickshot" EX review, but now it's time to take a look at Hydorah... Super Hydorah, to be precise! As a juiced up version of the original, how does Super Hydorah stack up?

A Nintendo 64 Classic Would Actually Be a Terrible Idea

intendo's Classics line has been nothing short of a success, even if that success only means that the limited stock that was initially released - and in some cases, already replenished with fresh units - have been quickly and completely sold out. At the very least, people are keenly and acutely aware of the SNES Classic and its infamously-under-produced-and-forthcoming-again predecessor, the NES Classic. However, people are already looking forward to theoretical successors, and the Nintendo 64 seems ripe for the Classics line treatment. After all, the N64 had a healthy fan-base and some notable games, but are these qualities really enough for it to actually make for a good “Classics” machine?

Well, no, not especially and there are quite a few factors that support this.

First, let's discuss the Nintendo 64 itself. The Nintendo 64 was launched in North America in 1996 to a voracious crowd that decimated its supply in the kind of way you'd expect of a Nintendo's launch; seemingly under-produced, rarely restocked... you know the drill. The system itself had four controller ports built in, relied on cartridges (with a woefully small capacity compared to CD ROMs) and other features like analogue controllers, expandable bits that increased the system's power and, of course, a decent selection of strong first party games over the course of its lifetime. So, all of the ingredients that would make a great classic mini system right—still no, and not all the nostalgia in the world could prove otherwise.

PPR 106

h wow, it has been awhile since I've been the person responsible for putting up new content. I will try to make sure that this does not all come crashing down but I cannot make any promises, Internet. Speaking of garbage fires this is Toast welcoming you to another episode of Press Pause Radio where we discuss the Juggalo March, banana peeling tactics, Mario not being a plumber, and wedding advice. That last one had it's ups and downs but we all learned a little more about each other. Sharing is caring.

The normal crew of GeorgieboysAXE, Ser Flash and I also experiment with web cameras and discuss current hot topics including Sean Vanaman and MCA takedowns involving PewDewPie and Firewatch. Our show also reminds everyone that there are a ridiculous amount of games coming out this year such as Sonic Mania, Project Octopath Traveller, Hellblade Setsuna, Yakuza Kiwami, Uncharted Lost Legacy, Destiny 2, Neo Geo Archives; Aero Fighters 2, Neo Geo Archives; Spin Masters, and a newer indie title on the market called Minecraft.

So sit back and enjoy this audio experience, possibly while holding a protest sign depicting a Hatchetman in one hand and in the other some refreshing Faygo Moon Mist. It's the American way. 

Mail us at our new email Mailbag@presspauseradio.com, leave a voicemail at 469-PPR-TALK, and be sure to stop by at our Forums if you haven’t already registered and post your thoughts about the show. Finally, make sure to rate and subscribe to us on iTunes and YouTube, follow us on Twitch page and Twitter, and finally take part in our Facebook and Steam group!

Mudprints Unboxes FHR: Hyperkin Hyperclick Retro Style Mouse 

ou might think that Mario Paint is where the Super NES Mouse begins and ends, but there are all kinds of games that support it. Unfortunately, the original Super NES mouse is far from ideal nowadays, espceically with cheap, effective tech upstaging Nintendo's early-90's hardware. But Hyperkin is striking back with a brand new OPTICAL mouse for the Super NES and Super Famicom! How does it stack up? Let's take a look!!

Mudprints Unboxes FHR: Hyperkin SmartBoy

laying vintage Game Boy Games is the very essense of what portable gaming was in the 90's. But without complete command of the nuclear brightness of the Sun, it's kind of hard to do these days, especially with aging, degrading LCD screens on the older original units. Enter Hyperkin with the once-a-joke, now-a-sweet-piece SmartBoy that turns (almost) any USB-C smartphone into a classic Game Boy! How does it hold up? Let's take a look!
