PPR 36

It's so hard to stay away. With our Android app now officially available for purchase, we are constantly wanting to record new episodes to keep you all happy. The result of which is Press Pause Radio 36, where our heroes discuss the concept of the boss battle. Boss battles have been a mainstay in most games for decades, but with a new generation of multiplayer games becoming more popular are boss encounters a thing of the past? The crew will discuss this along with the most recent news involving the Nintendo 3DS and the Playstation Next-Gen Portable or NGP. So please enjoy the latest episode, and please make sure to rate and review us on iTunes and Zune. Android users can check the Marketplace to get their hands on the Press Pause Radio app, and soon to iPhone users as well.
