QCF: Kentucky Route Zero: Act 2

fter several months of waiting, we finally return to Kentucky Route Zero only to find that things are more bizarre than what they seemed. At the end of the first episode, as Conway and Shannon stare off into what must be Route Zero I imagined that the many questions I was left with would have some form of an answer after I hit the road. As I know now at the conclusion of Act 2, the answers will not come as easy, and that dealing with the questions is what makes this experience unlike any games on the PC right now.

QCF: The Last of Us

n the dilapidated remains of crumbling edifice that provides the little refuge in the quarantined limits of Central Boston, a man awakens suddenly. His eyes emit a strong sense of fatigue -- the fatigue of survival. After 20 years of hardship that warped and conditioned an earnest man into a smuggling misanthrope, he stumbles upon a job opportunity that proves to be bigger than himself, a journey that unfolds an experience more human than anything that has ever been inside of a PlayStation 3 before it.

PPR Presents: Nintendo's Closet Furry

he Mustachioed knight in overalls is making his second appearance on the Wii U, but don’t expect to see him in his overalls considering he’ll be—get this, dressing up like a cat. Yeah... strange right? See and that’s the thing, it’s really NOT all that strange when you think about it; we’re seeing an icon openly fetishizing and it’s skirting the point to where he might start hooking up with Craiglist ads in between all the self-inflicted heavy petting to DeviantART.

We all know Mario has always had some sort of identity crisis through his career. Whether he’s a doctor who gave away pills like free kittens in front of Walmart, or recklessly barreling down the speedway in his go-kart like Shia LaBeouf driving home from a night of binge-drinking, he’s never really done any plumbing. The one consistent behavior we can associate with the jumping legend is his love to get primal with animal costumes, and I think it’s time he comes clean with it. I mean, there’s nothing to be ashamed of Mario -- we totally understand. College Humor may have had the jump on us, but we’re here with open paws to accept all of the proverbial animal skeletons of our hero’s closet and let him know “Hey man, it’s cool if that’s your thing, just don’t be weird about it.”

The following is evidence that will illustrate the gradual buildup of veritable evidence that confirms our suspicions that the Red and Blue Italian is a full-blown furvert.

QCF: Zeno Clash 2

lmost four years after the release of the first person brawler Zeno Clash, we return to the eccentric world of Zenozoik and its bizarre inhabitants. In Zeno Clash 2, players will explore much more of the landscape, while completing quests and finding allies along the way. While combat has been improved along with new weapons, the overall game play still has the same issues as the original. ACE attempts to flesh out the experience within the nine or ten hour campaign, however punching and kicking will only carry this abnormal adventure so far.

QCF: Animal Crossing: New Leaf

This Review was Freelanced by Cody Winn; you can find his other work here.

f there's one thing that really impresses me as a gamer, it's when a developer gives me control of their game world; lent trust and the magical brush of creation, or even just modification, I become obsessed for months on end, singing the game's praises and praising the game's every pixelated inch. With a game like Animal Crossing: New Leaf, I control my destiny -- even if it comes at the price of being monetarily enslaved by a raccoon.

PPR Presents Play Play: Killer Instinct

uring Microsoft’s E3 presser on Monday, one of our predictions came to be and we all saw the revival of Killer Instinct and the plans to release it exclusively to the upcoming X-bone. Considering this was a better time than any other was, we decided to release our new weekly video series, Play Play. This video series will basically be a quick-look styled videos on all games, new or old with one of us piloting the controller and the rest joining in on the conversation. In this debut episode, we talk about how Jago-on-Jago sounds dumb, Rape Jokes being uncool, and how fucking stupid the 90’s really were.
