Bullet Heaven, Episode 99 - Gunhound EX

e love our mecha-based run-and-gunners here on Bullet Heaven, and while Gigantic Army was well and good, we always had deep, tearful feelings for Gunhound EX, but she'd always been just out of our grasp. Thankfully, Playism (Active Gaming Media) has brought this fast-paced, super polished shooter west... but how does it stack up?

QCF: The Last Federation

hat’s not to love about flying through space, fighting pirates and warlords, all while getting to decide which planets live or die? Taking command of the galaxy sounds pretty sweet. Arcen Games has created a visually pleasing, expansive simulation that allows even the most casual gamer to jump into space and rule the universe. There are a few missed marks along the way, but The Last Federation is a good base with lots of potential to improve with DLC.

QCF: Full Bore

t’s refreshing to play a game that quite literally drops you into the wild and leaves you to your own devices after a relatively quick intro. The world exists on a 2D plane and you play as this little bore. You can move left, right, fall down, and climb adjacent blocks at 45-degree angles. The little bore can also tunnel through dirt and shove blocks around. As you explore you’ll meet the denizens of this underground world whom offer up subtle clues about the game play and the world they inhabit. To boil it all down you’re going to be collecting diamonds buried in the mine.

QCF: Duck Game

ucks make everything better, there’s no denying it, cartoons, sound effects, sandwich meat, pets, efficient means disposing of expired bread, there’s no limit to how they can improve our way of life; shit, I mean have you guys seen Fly Away Home? That movie’s amazing!

Anyway, getting back on track, it was only a matter of time before a developer took it upon himself to give us the Duck Game we all deserved; it’s called Duck Game.

While most of you may cynically write it off as another local multiplayer Towerfall clone, I can assure you that it’s one of the best times I’ve had with the Ouya yet, and helps define just why the android console is the best indie sweetheart to go to the dance with.

PPR Presents Our 5th year anniversary special: Alien Soldier for Extra Life

ou guys and gals want to hear something funny? Our fifth year anniversary is this Sunday, and we knew this day was coming sooner or later (well Andrew always said no fucking way to be fair.)

Moreover, though, on what I thought would be one of the most joyous occasions of my life, I’m going to stream my least favorite game of all God Damn time to earn money for the kiddos, while you lot of sickos entertain at my misery for 8 hours. The occasion is still one that’s worthy of celebration and we’ll definitely have a proper podcast navel gaze over what we’ve done (or how little) within the last half of the of the PPR decade thus far.

Join us on your Sunday, May 25th at 10 AM Pacific standard time, and watch me begrudgingly play Alien Soldier as a tribute to where we’ve gotten now (you can also watch it here), thanks to listeners, readers, and now watchers like you. While this isn’t an officially sanctioned drive, we’d love for you to donate to Extra Life while I party down in all of my misery.

Seriously though, 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, and yes; T-shirts and posters will finally hit the store in stock later this week. I’m truly blessed to have PPR, all of us here are, and it’s all thanks to you lovable shmucks.

PPR Presents Play Play: Princess Crown

ack in the beginning, before George Kamitani and company started the Vanillaware brand, they worked on a project in conjunction with Sega and Atlus for the 2D Powerhouse that was the Sega Saturn; game that would become a Holy Grail of sorts on the platform before it would get rereleased again on the PSP—Princess Crown. So many accolades have been attributed to this title aside from it being the catalyst for Vanillaware, but after all this time, have those accolades held up? Should this game have seen a stateside release after all?

George doesn’t really think so, and is Andrew still excited for the game after all this time? Tune in and find out as well simultaneously discover just how good Ser’s Japanese really is, as we stumble around our understanding of it along for the ride.

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!

QCF: Super Time Force

dmit it, regardless of acknowledging the potential gravity of any of the possible penalties for trifling with such affairs, if you could affect the outcome of any event in existence by having control and mastery over time; you would totally rock the shit out of the space-time continuum. Despite all of the complex rubrics and conduct surrounding the details of time travel, the concept has never been too foreign or daunting for anybody to not fantasize about, and the fantasy of going back and doing things differently with pre-meditative insight on the past is too tempting to walk away from.

So now, imagine the opportunity of governing over it with force, Super Time Force; Capy’s insane gun-toting bullet buffet of an answer ironically modernizes old-school sensibilities with a time-travelin’ tribute that travels in time to bring us a game that…uses time trav…it would be best to stop before all of our heads start hurting.
