PPR 93

ome cool jokes, solid sound effects, and a lot of chemistry in each conversation: would listen to again—8/10, or something like that. Yeah, as silly as they can be, game reviews are one of the most polarizing, yet essential elements to the culture and industry of video games today.

As the medium of gaming grows, so too does the science of critiquing it for both consumer and developers alike. We here at Press Pause Radio decide to discuss this necessary evil in detail, ranging in our thoughts about the process from our fellow peers in games journalism, our very perspective on the concept of review, justifying our personal philosophy behind our very own grading system.

Along the way we talk about Valentine’s Day, The New Nintendo 3DS XL, The Order 1886, Club Nintendo, Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, Mexican Snowboarding, Life is Strange, Avernum 2, Kirby and The Rainbow Curse, The Last Guardian, and more!

QCF: Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth 2

ot long ago, NIS America released Hyperdimenson Neptunia Re:Birth 1, a full-on remake of the original Hyperdimension Neptunia which saw release on the PlayStation 3 in 2010. The first Re:Birth overhauled and vastly improved the RPG mechanics from the original 2010 release making the 2014 Vita release the best version of the first narrative by far. Continuing this trend, NIS America released Hyperdimension Neptunia Re:Birth 2 on January 27 2015, and the changes are even more dramatic.

Hyperdimension Neptunia Mk.2 was released to the PlayStation 3 in 2011; taking place directly after the events of the original game, the gameplay mechanics in Mk.2 were revamped greaty from the first release and forms the template by which Re;Birth 1 actually follws. Re;Birth 2 returns to this gameplay style—as such, Re;Birth 2 feels very much like a carbon copy of the original PS Vita release with a minor cast shakeup and very few actual additions—let's take a closer look.

QCF: Evolve

Disclaimer: The following review of Evolve is from a press build of the game on PC. Because of the lack of online play with a large amount of players, this review is on the offline mode of the game. There was gameplay online with other players with early access, however because this title will be mainly a game with a online multiplayer focus, the final review score will not factor in the online play. We at Press Pause Radio will revise this review as necessary once the final build of the game has released. Thank you.

urtle Rock Studio’s upcoming shooter Evolve has been creating plenty of buzz since last summer when it won the Best of Show award at E3 as well as the Best of Gamescom award, the only title to win both prestigious accolades. After an alpha test on the various platforms and a beta run on Xbox One, the title is now set to release with it’s interesting concept of four human players playing against a fifth player taking on the role of the enemy boss. The brainchild from the same developers as Left 4 Dead has accomplished the goal in creating a multiplayer experience that has a large amount of recapitulation and depth, but the online component will be what decides if the title can live up to it’s potential.

PPR Presents Play Play: Transistor 

hroughout the wreckage and calamity (see what I did there?) of Cloudbank, bears the stance of one woman, and her indignant sense of duty to right the wrongs of all the injustice that’s befallen her fair city and life.

Listen, it’s no secret, we love Super Giant Games’ sophomore release, Transistor, and while we’ve already reviewed, and talked about it at great lengths on the show, we figure we’d go one step further in showcasing our admiration for 2014’s indie darling in yet another edition of Press Pause Radio’s Play Play.

Come join us, join everyone, oh, everyone, before we all become one.
