PAX East 2014: The Best of the Indie mega booth!

ndie Mega Booth is always a delight when it makes an appearance, and now that it’s branched out to the likes of GDC and Indiecade, the roster of games in the showcase is able to stretch into territory of epic proportions both in size and diversity. On top of that, this has had to have been the best showing the booth has ever done so far; meaning I had a heavy heart over deciding which games made the cut for the best of show but the deed is done, so without further adieu—here’s the cream of the crop for Indie Mega Booth at PAX east 2014!

PAX East 2014: Getting tricky with Trials Fusion

here aren’t many names in video games with the potential of yielding polarizing views of admiration or revilement quite like Trials has within the last fourteen years of growing exposure. Since the series made its acclaimed return back in 2009 on the 360, Ubisoft has picked up the publishing and it’s only motivated RedLynx to continually push the franchise more and more while remaining true to the formula’s roots.

Investing a considerable amount of time with the current build on the floor, Trials Fusion applies that same kind of ideal to reinvent on top of what worked like its predecessor Evolution did and managed to multiply it to a degree that every sequel would aspire to accomplish for its respective franchise.

PAX East 2014: Hands-on with Evolve

ith all of the competitive multiplayer titles being played for eSports and even more down the line of 2014, there’s one particular title that’s bringing back the intensity of competition through cooperative play in a whole new way. The folks behind Left 4 Dead have channeled the same frenetic combat of the infamous tank encounters from the hit series and have filtered it into what looks like could have only been inspired from marathons of watching the original Predator film; Evolve is poised to be a familiar kind of shooter that’s refreshing in all of the right ways.

With the promise of additional hunter classes and monster types, the hands-on play began with the introduction of the Assault class (which I manned), Trapper, Support, and Medic as we were tasked to bring down the Goliath monster. As the match was starting, the map panned us through a tour of the intergalactic tropical locale, and out prey as large as he was, was still dwarfed by the sheer size and real estate of the stage.

PPR Presents Play Play: Mirrormoon EP

ooming with Rob Rich for this year's PAX East has led to many conversations and even more debates, which have been great; but there was one that just couldn’t be dropped—how inaccessible Mirrormoon EP is, and Rob jumped to the call. I want to make it clear that I really enjoyed the concept and atmosphere of Mirrormoon purely out of an aesthetic view, but I feel like the structure of the game borders over cryptic and gets straight esoteric with some of the objectives and the complete lack of direction.

So in short, this impromptu Play Play is Rob jumping at the opportunity to remind me that I’m wrong while subtly implying that I’m an idiot in the process, and we all win.

PPR Presents Now Showing: 04/10/2014

t’s the night before PAX, and PPR is always in the midst of playing catch up; so why not toss you guys some sweet trailers while we prep for the big event tomorrow/ Right, that’s exactly what we were thinking; so we compiled a list of some upcoming indie games that have caught our eyes, and hould hopefully catch yours too.

Need flashy murder that begs to be justified with some sort of meaning that’s so cryptic you can’t help but murder more just to find out? Hotline Miami 2 is what’s up. How about some wacky weird golf course dimension that brings to life all the strangeness you’d expect from a 1993 Nickelodeon advert juxtaposed with a Windows 95 screensaver? Vertigonous Golf all the way. There’s more where that came from, just click the bump and what to your heart’s content.

QCF: Plants VS Zombies: Garden Warfare

he Undead; we’re already well aware that they’re everywhere, but If there’s one particular property that’s assisted in propelling the trend of zombies into a practical modern day motif within today’s culture, it would definitely be Plants vs. Zombies.

Aside from coddling the concept of flesh hungry corpses into charismatically mischievous ghouls, the franchise has made strides to redefine and expand the tower-defense genre into something to care about; which is why Garden Warfare such a mixed bag of roses and manure—but mostly shit.

Employing a modified Battlefield 4 engine, Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare attempts at delivering it's own brand of tactical shooter elements and conquest dynamics with the horde mode design and Tower defense sensibilities—the results peter into something that’s tepidly Luke warm at best, and frustrating monotony that’s largely unfulfilling the rest of the time.

PPR presents Play Play: Megaman Unlimited

k, that’s it, we’ll be the first one to say it; Mighty No. 9 is only anticipated as highly as it is because of the lack of new Megaman software from Capcom—it’s the only reason. While some of you are already angrily typing some sort of response as to why we’re dumb or something, we want to bring you guys a Play Play of a certain fan’s response to the void Capcom has maintained, in one of the best love letters the Blue Bomber has yet to receive. We play Megaman Unlimited and it’s awesome, go ahead and click play on the video and then agree with us with the fierceness.
