hippu Mahou Daisakusen (疾風魔法大作戦): Kingdom Grand Prix, otherwise translated (depending how you interpret it) as "Gale Great Battle of Magic" or "Hurricane Magic Armageddon: Kingdom Grand Prix" is a mouthful to say as well as slick racing/shmup hybrid! But how does this nifty mashup blend together? Watch to find out.
aedalic Entertainment pulls double duty as developer and publisher to bring us their game vision, The Night of the Rabbit. It’s an adventure title of the point-and-click variety that saw release on PC and Mac on May 29, 2013. Characters, story, exploration, and visuals tend to be the driving point for most point-and-click adventures, and I’m happy to report that The Night of the Rabbit delivers in all categories.
The story book scenery is flat out beautiful. From the rich warm colors of a setting sun to the aurora borealis bristling over the arctic, you can tell the art team put their very best effort into their work and had fun doing it. My wife (who doesn’t typically play video games) was immediately drawn in by the game’s presentation. That says a lot about the influence a great art team can have on a product.
his is quite possibly the most ridiculous E3 predictions podcast we’ve done yet. To start, Ser hates it, Arrested Development is fucking it up, Andrew and James get wrapped in Dungeon and Dragons Next (yeah seriously, it’s like they think they’re on that other podcast or something), and George is an asshole for buying the Super Mario Bros the movie soundtrack on Vinyl. Among all the other nonsense, the gang manages to squeeze in some games from their backlog and predict some events and releases to come out of the biggest video game conference of the year, which is debuting in less than a week. There’s plenty of PS4, Xbox One, and even Ouya talk so check it out and enjoy the show.

Tune in around Friday, June 7th, at 7:30 PM pacific time and join us in the chat on our Twitch page or settle in for the stream right here where George and the crew get down on the get down and might have a couple of brews as they use candy to skin animals alive.
ow many traditional shooters does the Nintendo 64 have in it's library? Hint: I can count them on one finger. Reviews from 1999 scathe it. Fan websites revile it. But is it honestly worth all the hate? In episode 72 of Bullet Heaven HD, we take a look at Star Soldier: Vanishing Earth on the Nintendo 64.
SPECIAL THANKS to Georgie BoysAXE for this cartridge!
ame Dev Tycoon is a game I've wished for since playing Game Dev Story back in 2010. I couldn’t tell you how much I played that game. In fact, it was my game of the year back then. So when picking up Game Dev Tycoon and diving in to a deeper, more fleshed-out version of that same experience, you’d think that I'd be jumping for joy the entire way through. However, what I really discovered is a game so difficult to wrap my head around that it's almost a cautionary tale about the current state of game development.
GDT starts you out as an indie developer toiling away at your computer and developing games in your garage. There's no real narrative in place, so you just start making games back in the early days of gaming before the NES even launched. Being that you're a one-person game making machine, you begin to pump a text adventure here and military strategy game there. Once you gain a little money you can invest in developing your own engine and research new types of games.
eeping things modest again this time of year, we wanted to celebrate our 4th year going with another commentary track just for you guys, and considering the choices we gave you, the most volatile one took it home. We humbly thank all of our followers for the years of support as PPR has honestly been and will continue to be one of the best gigs we do on the web. So let’s get to the matter at hand, for those of you who don’t own Super Mario Bros. the movie, it’s conveniently located on YouTube and linked here just for you . The instructions for playing the commentary will be on the podcast so you be sure to kick up a seat and keep your booze handy, these drinking rules are rough…Click the jump and get ready.
his Saturday is going to be a big day for us people; it’ll be 4 amazing fucking years since we launched Press Pause Radio. Last year, we chose to record commentary for the cinematic classic, The Wizard; with a drinking game on top—we’re going to make that very same mistake again this year, and this time, we’re giving you guys the choice. We’ve made it pretty easy, all you have to do is vote in this incredibly convenient poll, and determine which particular film will play as we record all the horrible choices we’re going to make watching it, and this is for your entertainment folks. We’ll be checking the results this Friday night so get at us!
So the votes have it, we're going to be recording commentary for the notoriously awful 1993 film, Super Mario Bros.-The Movie. Directed by the fickle husband/wife duo Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel, the movie exists as a scar in everyone of our childhoods be it the terrible acting or the criminally liberal take on the lore of the Japanese video game icon, this movie is an abortion pure and simple. It gets better though folks because not only will we be recording commentary, we'll be playing the officially recognized drinking game for this dog turd of a film, here are the rules for you folks...
