PPR Presents Play Play: Super Mario 64 HD Unity Fan-Game

andom can certainly be a bit overzealous at times, especially when it comes to those who exhibit their devotion in ways that’re a bit unhinged; and then sometimes, it can truly be such a wondrous thing. In order to rigorously play test a new character controller schematic he was coding, a programmer by the name of Eric “Roystan” Ross decided to code a demo that would not only serve as an effective environment for testing, but one that would pay tribute to a gem from his childhood.

A high-definition overhaul of Super Mario 64’s first map, the Bob-omb Field, and boy is it pretty.

It’s a real shame that it had to be taken down so soon after Nintendo slapped the studious developer with a Cease & Desist, luckily, Georgie got some time to check it out, and show you guys what the fuss was all about in this quick little Play Play edition of the demo from Press Pause Radio!

PPR Presents Play Play: Project AXSX Demo

ne of the more intricate nuances of video game culture strangely enough is all of the content that doesn’t leave the cutting room floor. The unreleased treasure trove of games and levels comprise a sense of personal history that actively distinguishes video games from any other media form to this very day.

When these canceled bits of code and projects actually manage to see the light of day, the gaming community strives to make sure that spread the forbidden lovejoy of these unearthed games for as many as they can to play it; and sometimes, it takes some fan efforts to go on and finish what the original team never could. Chris Senn’s effort for the famous hedgehog’s flagship Saturn effort for example is a holy grail of sorts for unreleased games; and a team of fans by the name of Project AXSX has taken it upon themselves to deliver a fan completion of the mythical Sonic X-treme.

We got our hands on a demo of it, a really early work-in-progress of it, and well, we try to be really over optimistic over whether or not this ambitious take on the blue blur deserves to exist.

PPR Presents Play Play: Legend of Princess

ow that Nintendo has embraced the idea of Link and the gang getting fierce and brutal with Hyrule Warriors, we figure we would drum up another action-heavy approach to the Zelda-cannon; that’s ironically not recognized as cannon because it’s a fan game—a super sweet fan game.

Join Ser, Gil, and Georgie as they guide the inconspicuously salmon pink haired antagonist through labyrinthine death-traps and colorfully bat-shit nonsense that can’t help but scream Z-E-L-D-A from the top of its figurative lungs in Legend of Princess.

This is a freeware title too, join in on the fun right here!

PPR Presents Play Play: Sonic The Hedgehog 2 HD-Alpha

hile the newest Sonic game that’s currently in development may care too much about athletic tape, there’s still hope for another title that was originally hyped to be one of the prettiest remakes of the Blue blur’s most iconic venture. Yeah, that’s right, Sonic The Hedgehog 2 HD is back on track, and George takes a few minutes his day, and yours to tell y’all why you should give a shit as he plays the original Alpha build.
This all looks gorgeous right now, sure, but the team is currently laboring towards the new engine to look even prettier...
