PPR 84

ww man, I can’t wait to play through this game, this is so exciting, and the bes…..oh, and it’s done? Is that it? I would appear so; it’s the age-old question we ask ourselves every other release, and more often within recent years, just how long should a game be?

James, Ser, and George sit around and ask that question among themselves while Toast is trapped at some Girl Scout event in Parts Unknown and dicuss a myriad of topics ranging from James romanticizing why everyone should be playing Dark Souls to Ser using a PSP Go in the most ridiculous of ways. So plug in your whatever, and listen to a couple of hours of whatever with the newest episode of Press Pause Radio.

QCF: inFamous: Second Son

he idea of being larger than life leads down many paths to those who aspire for that sort of spotlight; stuff like entertainment, professional sports, or politics, but the most fantastical of them all is obtaining super powers, humanity’s ever present castle in the air.

Sucker Punch ventured into such territory and the grand moral compass that proceeds over it with inFamous, an ambitious open-world game that stumbled a bit out the door before it found the right beat for the tune it was pitching with inFamous 2.

Fast forward to present time and we see Sucker Punch at it again with inFamous Second Son; a sequel that introduces some novel features to the series, but unfortunately regresses the all-too-important advancements from its predecessor to a disappointingly mediocre degree.

QCF: The Raven - Legacy of a Master Thief

f anyone has noticed over the last few years, it seems as if adventure games are coming back in a big way. With the success of companies like Telltale Games and Double Fine leading a rebirth of the point and click genre, many other games will undoubtedly try to capitalize. So my initial response to seeing The Raven - Legacy of a Master Thief was one of disinterest and disappointment. After playing through all three chapters of this title, I can say that there is disappointment still lingering however not in the way that I would have imagined.

QCF - Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God

he rogue-like is kind of making a bit of a resurgence in the current gaming landscape. Games like Towerfall, The Guided Fate Paradox and more are really kind of creating a sort of Rogue-renaissance with their unique combination brand of roleplaying and crippling hardships upon player's very imminent deaths. Unlike most games out there today (Dark Souls notwithstanding), these games offer a challenge seldom seen in the video games of today. But what if you're not hard core enough to slog your way through the modern rogue-like battlefield? Well, that's where Sorcery Saga: Curse of the Great Curry God comes in.

here’s a whole lot of buzz on the web on whether or not Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes is just a glorified demo; after much deliberation (not a whole lot) we decided that instead of reviewing Ground Zeroes, We’ll cover it a different way—stream the shit out of it for Limelight.

GDC 14: Nintendo's quest for indies is paying off

he pace is slow and the swagger barely exists. The last day for GDC is starting to wear on the best of us, but it’s been an incredible ride nonetheless. This show in particular showcased incredible ideas and potential to gaming in some sweet directions.

Another testament to this, of course, were games supported by the efforts of Nintendo and their web frame/Unity efforts to make the eShop a friendlier place to distribute their games on for indies. Two games hitting Nintendo’s underdog console as exclusives particularly stood out, and hopefully will set a trend for their peers to follow suit when it comes to what the Wii U can do.

GDC 14: Getting down on Ouya exclusives

aking a breather from the hustle and bustle that GDC 2014 has proved to be this week, I decided to go and enjoy some casual time at the Ouya booth to check out what was being showcased and to get a handle on the redesigned controller myself. Surprisingly, there were a lot of games being demoed through Ouya’s “fund the fun” campaign, and despite some reservations concerning the new splintered direction the brand is going in from proprietary to third-party and the end of all of them being free to play, the games being exclusively signed prove that the Ouya remains relevant after all.
