Bullet Heaven, Episode 198 - Space Invaders Extreme (Steam Ver.)

In episode 153, we took a look at Space Invaders Extreme on the PSP. We preferred it to its DS counterpart due to its excellent prenestation. But now, Degica Games and Taito have retweaked this great game for the 40th anniversary of Space Invaders (and the 10th for Extreme itself!) resulting in what could be the best Space Invaders game ever crafted. How does it stack up?

PPR Presents Limelight: Sea of Thieves Beta Part 2

As we close in on the release date for the Microsoft exclusive Sea of Thieves, the fine people at Rare are allowing our ships to leave the harbor one more time in another closed beta this weekend. Please join our resident pirate-in-training Toast as he attempts to find treasure and avoid being puked on as we sail on the high seas. One thing to keep in mind is that Rare has specifically rolled out this closed beta as a stress test so expect some choppy waters as we say in the pirate business. I know that pun was from the last stream but I will keep on using it until people start getting mad at me. The stream will begin at 11pm Eastern 8pm Pacific time, and if any of our community are playing in the closed beta and would like to take on the adventure together look for Toast PPR.

QCF: Monster Hunter: World

This review was freelanced by Jon McAnally. You can find more reviews and articles written by him over at https://dontfeedthegamers.com/author/jonmcanally/Follow me on the Twitterverse @McAnallyJon

apcom's Monster Hunter franchise has been around for a couple decades now, dating back to the PlayStation 2 days. The series has more popularity in Japan, but there has always been a fan base here in the States. The latest entry into the series, Monster Hunter: World has caught the attention of seasoned veterans as well as curious newcomers. Since its announcement, the title has delivered some spectacular trailers boasting countless hours of intense, high-action hunts, all in a semi-open world setting. So, does the latest title in the series live up to the hype—In short, yes.

Those not familiar with the franchise need only know that the title explains the general premise of the games. Hunt monsters. Not only do you get to hunt and slay these titanic beasts, but you also get to carve them up to use their hides, claws, and bones to craft weapons and armor. In essence, if you're looking to craft some fire-resistant armor, take down some fire-breathing wyverns, skin them, and you'll have yourself some flame retardant armor in no time.

Bullet Heaven, Episode 197.5 - Zero Gunner 2- Update

In episode 197, we took a look at Zerodiv's Zero Gunner 2-, a complete rebuild of the Psikyo Dreamcast and Namomi shmup, sans source code. It had issues that were already addressed, so we took a bold step and reviewed it as if the issues were fixed... and we were right on the money. The new Ver. 1.0.1 patch is live and fixes all of the main concerns we had of the game, which is seen and explained in this follow-up companion entry.

Bullet Heaven, Episode 197 - Zero Gunner 2- 

Zerodiv has been bringing the goods to the Nintendo switch in awesome ways with a wide variety of Psikyo shmups from years past. Striker 1945, Gunbarich and Gunbird* have all seen release, but most interesting of all has to be Zero Gunner 2, a much beloved - and pricey - shooter released on Naomi hardware in arcades and subsequently to the Sega Dreamcast. Its source code was also lost. Adding a minus to the title, Zerodiv has rebuilt the whole game from scratch... so how does it stack up?
