PPR 27

Press Pause Radio takes a break from browsing online for "sex turtles" to record the newest episode of the podcast. On this week's show Georgieboy, Toast and special host Noel welcome the talented Mr. Bill Mudron to discuss video games, love and life. You may know Bill's work from such publications as Electronic Gaming Monthly and Penthouse Magazine. His website showcases just some of the fantastic art he has created, with more on the horizon.  We have a lengthy discussion on Scott Pilgrim, with possible spoilers of the movie and comic. If you have not yet seen the movie, you can skip from 10:20 into the podcast to about 27:20 to avoid any detailed discussions. We also discuss Bioshock Infinite and Georgieboy reviews Wonder Project J: Kikai no Shōnen Pīno for the Super Famicom.

Our featured topic is about being a "gamer" in social circles and environments that may not play video games. Does being labeled a fan of video games still carry a negative connotation? Or do we live in a society that now embraces video games and all that video games have inspired? We discuss this question and much more on this week's episode. Special thanks once again to Bill Mudron for taking time to be a guest on the show. Contact our voicemail at 209-566-0190 with any questions or comments, and follow us on Twitter for any updates on the show.

Hey guys! Listening to the podcast as I write this but I felt compelled to write about my party members. Two of my characters were named and made to look like Luka Megurine and Rin Kagamine, who are both Vocaloids (who's music I can't stop listening to!), and my third party member is named after Haruka, the little girl from the Yakuza series. Silly, I know, but I am very attached to my characters. Hehe!

Also, I really like the main character's story a lot. The main story has been so enjoyable so far. Even though there is a definite MMO feel to the game as a whole, I don't feel that it detracts from the core story.

I hit the 85 hour mark in that game and with PAX coming up, I know I will be way over the 100 hour mark before long. From what Aaron told me, it looks like one of the guys who's coming to the DQ Meet Up there has one of the most rare treasures maps which he's going to be sharing. SUPER EXCITING! xD

Anywho... enough rambling! Nite!

Hey Knitted Fox! I sadly have yet heard so much about this game & have not yet picked it up, I need to replace my DS as soon as possible as it was unfortunately stolen a while back & I have used my PSP much more. I should be able to grab a DSi cheap along with DQIX fairly soon so I can see what the fuss is about, I need to ask how many hours you have on the game?

Love, GeorgieBoysAXE~PPR
