In 1986, Hudson Soft took their summer caravan completely into their own hands with a new Caravan Shooting Game made completely in-house; Star Soldier was born and blasted onto the scene with new features and enhancements... But how does it stack up? Let's take a look!
f there’s one thing that Telltale has proven as a game developer in recent years it’s that they can offer an experience that’s close to the chest for any given property and its respective fandom. Among all of the licenses they’ve tackled however, there’s one particular adaption that truly represents the pedigree of the studio more than any of the other games they’ve helmed, and that’s the Walking Dead.
The third season picks up years from where we left off from the last time we saw Clementine, and while returning players are presumably breathing a collective sigh of relief to see her face grace the screen once more, Season Three’s “A New Frontier” isn’t centered on the steadfast teenager’s struggles in the post-apocalyptic world—we have a new player on the field.
More importantly, the first two episodes are quick to build upon a theme that effectively instills a growing sense of tension in each and every turning point crossed; legacies are bullshit, and nothing is sacred to those who want to survive.
he passage of time can sure be weird; it only seems like yesterday that we were talking about the Final Fantasy Versus XIII on the first episode of Press Pause Radio, an episode that was first recorded in 2009, where we talked about a game that was initially revealed at E3 in the year 2006…
Let’s think about that for a minute. We currently live in a generation where we’re treated to annual releases of upcoming titles, and triple AAA games that don’t take any more than three years at most for production. Yet here we are, the long-sought appearance of Final Fantasy XII Versus is here, only as Final Fantasy XV, an upgrade from spin-off to a main entry to the series.
Now this is the part where I tell you whether or not I think it was worth the wait, and well, to sum it up in a manner of words, yes—it was truly worth each and every year of the wait in a surprising turn of events.
Air Buster isn't exactly a household name when it comes to shooters, but if we're talking Turbografx-16, Aero Blasters is a name that should perk up at least a few ears. It's finally time to take a look at Aero Blasters and Air Buster on Bullet Heaven... so how do they stack up?
Hi Hi Everyone! It's Crate Dae again! Another crate so soon!! In this episode we take a second look at the Yume Twins January Crate! But what's this? The box has been switched up a bit... What's inside?
Hi Hi Everyone! It's Crate Dae again! In this episode we take a look at the December Akibento Subscription Crate! Neat! What's inside?
e’re not going to sparse words here guys, 2016 sucked; for a lot of reasons. Despite the fact that it wasn’t the best year for a lot of reasons, it sure did have a lot of good going for it in terms of video games. VR officially launched across both PC and console, mobile games made their presence know more than any other time before it, and Nintendo finally spilled the goods on their upcoming console with the reveal of the Nintendo Switch.
So, while we all happily say good bye and welcome 2017 with open arms, remember that there were some cool games and releases that made our little hobby pretty rad; and we’re going to celebrate that with this episode!
That’s right, you guessed it, it’s Press Pause Radio’s annual awards show—The Golden Zonkies!
We’ve recorded a special mega cast where we give our prestigious mark of excellence, a Golden Zonkey, to the game deserving of recognition towards that respective recognition.
Everything from games to events that saw the light of day in 2016, across fourteen different categories, and we have that very list for you here now. We’ll be plowing through a incredible catalog of choices, debating with one another from beginning to end in this epic podcast, each voicing our vote for the winner of its corresponding category.
The only stipulation in the Golden Zonkies, is that any point, a wild card can be suggested by one of the hosts if majority vote dictates that another nomination is more deserving of the award instead of the choices presently casted.
So without further ado, we present to you all Press Pause Radio’s Golden Zonkies, class of 2016! Enjoy the show!
