PPR 95

etter late than ever, something as trifling as a transition period and relocation won’t stop the voice of Press Pause Radio, (though admittedly, it’s been murder on our punctuality.) We’re here to discuss all of the highlights of the press events and announcements dropped at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo.

This episode dives into Holo-lens, Backwards-Compatibility, Fallout 4, Super Mario Maker, Super Smash Bros DLC, Final Fantasy VII Remake, Shenmue III, and more; E3 was weirdly fun this year, maybe we might enjoy the next one like this? Who know, but just click the damn play button already, it’s a new Press Pause Radio!

PPR Presents Play Play: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

t’s always a joy when the west gets a Final Fantasy game that they originally missed out on, and the deal sounds even sweeter when the game gets an HD facelift to boot; which is why it’s disappointing that this long lost Final Fantasy gem is so disappointing, and violent too.

Like, weirdly violent, if adorably birds being bloodied death doesn’t sound like a good time, then consider this your trigger warning, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD has lots of this shit from the start…

Ser and George attempt to find the fun that the game has to offer, and discuss design elements that they feel would be more ideal for an action RPG title (and they’ll try to find as many as they can in this pretty mess of game too.)

PPR Presents Now Showing: 07/01/2015

he video game industry’s biggest event has come and gone, and in its wake, we’re all still a bit mystified from some of the announcements that went down (Shenmue III still has George shaken up a bit.) Before we go in-depth with our thoughts on E3 though, we figure that we would post up some of the trailers that showcased all of the upcoming goodness that the event unveiled.

Granted, there were far more trailers than what’s listed here (and you can catch them on YouTube page here) but for now, we’ll just throw up some trailers of some of the more high profile games announced during that faithful week—have fun, stay tuned for the E3 podcast that’s coming up around the bend.

PPR Presents Play Play: Titan Souls

he thrill of pushing against overwhelming odds to the brink of death is a fantasy that anyone fan of a good action tale can relate to, but there is such a thing as overkill, and Titan Souls is a prime example of running a bit too far with the concept.

Join George and Ser as they stumble through the pixelated ruins of giants and monsters in Acid Nerve’s Titan Souls, and try to make sense of all death suffered in the process—it’s the kind of shit that will break you from the start.

PPR Presents Play Play: Tiny Dangerous Dungeons

hile it’s easy to dismiss the vast majority of retro-inspired indie love letters available as of late, I feel like the sentiment is still far from accurate. It’s kind an almost-trend of where the accusations of pandering or creative stagnation flood the discussion of this pseudo sub-genre, and  hopping on board with the consensus is one of the more common displays of low-hanging fruit that I’ve seen on both the community, and industry fronts of video games today.

Which is why it warms the heart to seen a game that’s solid enough to stand as an exception to that very inclination, and Tiny Dangerous Dungeons from Adventureislands is that title. This particular Play Play is solo one with George at the helm, as he wanted to share the game with everyone in a way where the a video was the better format over a “Late To The Party” feature when it comes down to conveying all the thoughts he has about it. Enjoy the sporadic Play Play and be sure to find the game and buy it to support the developer if you like what you see in the video!

PPR Presents Play Play: Mortal Kombat X

The amount of progress that Netherrealm Studios has accomplished with the Mortal Kombat brand and it’s respective fighting engine is something that no one can deny. I mean, no other game has passionately embodied the phrase “shit gets real” quite like Netherrealm’s current offering, and we decide to get in on the madness.

Getting in on the cutting edge action of MK X, we discuss the visceral visuals of the franchise hitting the latest generation of gaming and the tech it offers, the evolution of the Kombat system (seriously, we can’t help ourselves) and the shelf life that X may just have for the year of 2015. It’s another Play Play, so kick up your feet and press that play button already.

PPR Presents Play Play: Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection

here aren’t too many examples of a celebratory games that’re loaded with a tribute tour through all the best hits that made you what you are quite like Mortal Kombat Kollection…well, actually—scratch that.

There are a SHIT load of titles that are like that, and yeah; MK Kollection is ok or whatever when it comes down to it.

Join Andrew and George as fight down memory lane and spill all the digitized blood that they can as they discuss the history of Mortal Kombat Kraze (see what we did there) and share their own thoughts and attachment to the franchise at the start of our special look at the classic crimson-soaked tournament brawler on PPR’s Play Play!

PPR 6th Year Anniversary Special: Street Fighter Commentary

ix years may not seem like a long time for some folks but, that’s quite time stamp when you really look at it, that’s 312 weeks, which is also 2,190 days, made of 52,590 hours; that’s impressive for a podcast driven website that has never literally shit itself—I can’t say the same from a figurative standpoint though.

So what better way to celebrate than what we normally do; Sitting down and goofing up a storm on what may possibly be one of the biggest film flops of the nineties—that’s how. Starring Jean Claude Van Damme, Raul Juliá, that one lady from Agents of Shield, and more, it’s Street Fighter, the movie based on the game…that’s now a movie—adapted from the hit video game (is this this getting through yet?)

In this anniversary commentary special, we bear through all of Van Damme’s cringe inducing dialogue, reminisce about all the Nickelodeon game shows that donated their stage sets to the production of this film, Love Boat, and more—strap in and prepare yourselves.

I know we’ve said it before (and will most likely say it again the actual anniversary podcast), but the countless nights of editing, writing, laughing, and crying would not have been possible without you guys—I’m sincerely grateful for everyone who has supported us. The T-shirts and posters are still being made but will hit the store really soon (we’re really sorry about the wait!) I’m truly blessed to have PPR, all of us here are, and it’s all thanks to you lovable shmucks.
