QCF: Chariot

he concept of royalty truly is a fascinating distinction within humanity’s self-imposed hierarchy over the years. The prestige and responsibility it demands is a balance of finesse and leadership that’s equally important to both sides of the crown—even when that crown might rest upon the head of a self-absorbed, entitled narcissist.

Enter Chariot; a grand mission of tribute to the fallen king, undertaken by his two most loyal retainers, as they drag and push their majesty’s wagon-eered coffin, towards the perfect resting ground for burial so that the matriarch may finally move on to the afterlife.

While the whole thing may sound like a glorified escort mission at first impression, the reality is a delightfully heartwarming test of wits and resilience against the law of physics against a lump on wheels that’s essentially an out-of-body extension of you and your buddy’s skills and abilities—with an added test of friendship thrown in for good measure.

QCF: Cherry Tree High: I! My! Girls!

f you dig Persona the way I do, 773's Cherry Tree High Comedy Club was a game that should have grabbed your attention last year.

It sported a social link-styled system that closely resembled Atlus' masterpiece game-changer, though its setting is obviously much less dark. I had always felt that a little something was lost in translation with Cherry Tree High Comedy Club, but it was fun nonetheless. With its moderate success, Nyu-Media saw fit to bring over the sequel to Cherry Tree High Comedy Club to Steam and other platforms as well, in the form of Cherry Tree High: I! My! Girls!.

QCF: Hatoful Boyfriend

ll right, I'm sure you were all waiting with baited breath for this review for a very long while. You probably wanted to know who it was actually going to be, what whacked-out commentary they'd have about a Dating-Sim that features male friends of the feathered avian variety. Well, it's me—and here's my review of Hatoful Boyfriend.

In Japan, Dating-Sims are a pretty big genre, and have been popularized on such systems as the PC Engine and Saturn, with many such entries as Tokimeki Memorial and Wizards Harmony (the latter we actually have over here with Team Duo.) Hatoful Boyfriend is the one of the latest games to take part in the rising movement of Dating-Sims, and kinetic visual novels that are being localized for an American audience, particularly on PC in specific.

PPR Presents The Golden Zonkies: Class of 2014

014; whether it was a year you cherished or hated, there’s no denying just how eventful the past twelve months have been—especially for video games.

From budding next-generation consoles that are gradually gaining ground after being on store shelves for nearly a year, to the challenges and questions that have shaken the industrial and culture foundations that drive the medium of video games and it’s direction; the 365thchapter we’re about  to close on has sure had a lot of shit happen in it.

And just what kind of year would it be without the annual Press Pause Radio’s Golden Zonkies awards to get their last word in?

Everything from games to events that saw the light of day in 2014, across fifteen different categories, and we have that very list for you here now. We’ll be plowing through a prestigious catalog of choices, debating with one another from beginning to end in this epic podcast, each voicing our vote for the winner of its respective category.

The only stipulation in the Golden Zonkies is that any point, a wild card can be suggested by one of the hosts if majority vote dictates that another nomination is more deserving of the award instead of the choices presently casted, but weirdly enough—it didn't happen this year....imagine that.

If you’ve got an issue with the Golden Zonkies and how it was conducted then just remember the only other rule; it’s our God Damn show and opinion anyway, so keep that in mind when you send us whatever discourse you have with our decisions after the show by doing the following:

Mail us at our new email Mailbag@presspauseradio.com, leave a voicemail at 469-PPR-TALK, and be sure to stop by at our Forums if you haven’t already registered and post your thoughts about the show. Finally, make sure to rate and subscribe to us on iTunes and YouTube, follow us on Twitch page and Twitter, and finally take part in our Facebook and Steam group!
