PPR Presents Play Play: Warioland 4

ore Wario, All the Wario, well..not all of them, but—you, you guys get it. Anway, next up down the pipeline of our Garlic chomping anti-hero is Warioland 4, a game mostly designed towards being technical showcase for what the Gameboy Advance can really do similarly, to how Super Mario World was for the SNES.

It’s just as charmingly weird, and there’s some other shit going on too, but, we mostly get distracted over our argument of Metroid Fusion and Super Metroid but, who’s keeping score on that anyway.

PPR Presents Play Play: Virtual Boy Warioland

o, your eyes do not deceive you; somehow, we were able to capture Virtual Boy footage without making the red beast have awkward intercourse with a camcorder or anything. As an intermission to our Vanillaware block, we’re going to highlight some of the best games to star Mario’s yellow doppelganger, Wario, and what better game to start us off than one of the dirty goon’s cult classics; Virtual Boy Warioland.

As we bring up memories of Nintnedo’s first confused outing into 320bithardware, we also discuss Michael Phelps which somehow lead to blood-doping, 2.5D games, Lawnmower man, and how much Stevie really dislikes New Super Mario Bros.

QCF: Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection

've always had a mild curiosity for the Idol Master Games. I enjoy titles of the Rhythm and music varieties, so I figured a game about Producing Idols would be right up my alley. While Hyperdimension Neptunia: Producing Perfection not Idol Master, it is along the same premise. Producing Perfection is all about producing the Perfect Idol group to steal fame and recognition from rivals MOB48 (a horrible play on AKB48) to grab more attention for Gamindurti while taking back the lost shares taken by these other groups. Sounds pretty fun.... “Sounds” being the operative word...

QCF: Knightmare Tower 

nfinite runners are a genre that has sprung up mostly on mobile devices, easily using touch interface to manipulate specific, simple actions to get as far as possible. There's no denying that Jetpack Joyride is the clear trendsetter here, and an addictive one at that. However, what if you're tired of Barry Steakfries' antics? Enter Knightmare Tower.

QCF: Shovel Knight

ot that it's a bad thing, but retro styled games are practically everywhere now. Both visually and gameplay wise tons of products on the indie scene are embracing gaming's origins to varying degrees. Some are parodies like Super Meat Boy or Retro City Rampage, while a smaller batch are genuine attempts at capturing the actual feel these classics gave us in the very beginning. Shovel Knight is the latter.

While many games fall short of replicating the mediums glory days, Shovel Knight does the near impossible and surpasses it. If you've been looking for a new benchmark in retro gaming then the day has finally arrived. Shovel Knight is the real (old school) deal.

QCF: Tomodachi Life

m? Oh, yeah, I'm still here. Hard to stay focused with such an interesting microcosm brewing within the confines of my 2DS though. I'll try to stay on topic, but I'm also kind of watching an epic rap battle go down between George and Daeruna here too, so...

PPR Presents Play Play: Sonic The Hedgehog 2 HD-Alpha

hile the newest Sonic game that’s currently in development may care too much about athletic tape, there’s still hope for another title that was originally hyped to be one of the prettiest remakes of the Blue blur’s most iconic venture. Yeah, that’s right, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 HD is back on track, and George takes a few minutes his day, and yours to tell y’all why you should give a shit as he plays the original Alpha build.
This all looks gorgeous right now, sure, but the team is currently laboring towards the new engine to look even prettier...

PPR Presents Play Play: NES Remix 1+2 

intendo’s no stranger to pandering to all of the inner-children within us by tugging at our nostalgia, but in this case, we might have found an exception that does more than cater to rose-tinted fandom. Ser sits on in with George, and checks out what he’s missing on the Wii U with both, NES Remix and NES Remix 2. We check out all the nifty little tweaks and nuances, and argue over whether or not Nintendo’s still got the touch. They also get into about it Kirby games, and some other dumb shit, but that’s just the norm with them anyway.
