PPR Presents The Golden Zonkies: Class of 2016

e’re not going to sparse words here guys, 2016 sucked; for a lot of reasons. Despite the fact that it wasn’t the best year for a lot of reasons, it sure did have a lot of good going for it in terms of video games. VR officially launched across both PC and console, mobile games made their presence know more than any other time before it, and Nintendo finally spilled the goods on their upcoming console with the reveal of the Nintendo Switch.

So, while we all happily say good bye and welcome 2017 with open arms, remember that there were some cool games and releases that made our little hobby pretty rad; and we’re going to celebrate that with this episode!

That’s right, you guessed it, it’s Press Pause Radio’s annual awards show—The Golden Zonkies!

We’ve recorded a special mega cast where we give our prestigious mark of excellence, a Golden Zonkey, to the game deserving of recognition towards that respective recognition.

Everything from games to events that saw the light of day in 2016, across fourteen different categories, and we have that very list for you here now. We’ll be plowing through a incredible catalog of choices, debating with one another from beginning to end in this epic podcast, each voicing our vote for the winner of its corresponding 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.

So without further ado, we present to you all Press Pause Radio’s Golden Zonkies, class of 2016! Enjoy the show!

QCF: DOOM (2016)

ou ever heard the term, lightning doesn’t strike twice in the same spot? Well, it’s true, and the connation behind the idiom is meant to infer just how hard it is to reproduce the impact of something memorable like that lightning strike; so to add to that, for the sake of this argument, let’s just say that this “lightning strike” we’re referring to is the original DOOM that released way back in 1993.

The original DOOM was monumental, it forever changed the landscape of video games, and what anyone could ever perceive out of them—as you kids would say, “that shit was straight LIT.”

Needless to say, the DOOM franchise became a household name, and has remained one for years to come, regardless of how hard it’s been for the series to successfully transition into the modern age of shooters—a shit ton of shooters mind you.

While Doom 3 failed to do that, this new eponymous reboot has not; in fact…

Doom (2016) is one of the most refreshing breaths of fresh air that you can experience out of a shooter in today’s saturated climate, like, this game has no business being as good as it is.

Life Through The Pixel Glass-10/04/2013

ow, so this is awkward…it’s been a while since we’ve done one of these right? Yeah, well…we’re picking up our stride again. With the videos and reviews we’ve picked the pace up on, it only makes sense that we get LTTPG going again. For those who are late to the party, have horrible attention spans, or you simply despise me to the point where you tune out whatever I say on the podcast anyway; I just recently moved and though it’s been more than a month since—I’m still catching up.

Nevertheless, fear not, there’s plenty of nonsense to hit the site soon. Even though next month is going to be insane for everyone, and the wait for the new consoles to launch may even seem unbearable for the lot of us but you should just hang back and relax. We have plenty of shit to throw at you and we can all just pass the time together, this is Life Through The Pixel Glass—welcome back.
