PPR on The Road!

We here at Press Pause Radio has been busy! Within a matter of a month from each other, we’ve finished covering GDC 12 and PAX East 2012. Between all of the posts, we had to ask ourselves if whether or not all of our listeners /readers were able to catch all of the madness we covered. Well, you’re in luck, because we decided to have all of our coverage listed for your enjoyment all in one convenient post. Here you’ll find all of our impressions, interviews, previews, and podcasts from the two events so go ahead and catch up with anything you’ve missed! Also, be sure to prep yourself for our Mass Effect trilogy Games Club in the biggest Spoiler-cast we’ve ever done yet!

GDC 12: The return of Beat'em up Brawlers

Constantly moving to the right, punching every single moving thing with two or four legs directly in the face that is what it truly is to be beat’em up. In this day and age, the genre hasn’t had the best of journeys, and most of us often fancy the better days wearing rose-tinted glasses of nostalgia. Re-releases and throwbacks aside, three games aim to bring back the rush of beating a roasted turkey out of someone’s chest as we take a look at what they had to offer with some white-knuckled playtime.

GDC 12: Indie Game The Movie Impressions

On Monday night, GDC attendees had the opportunity to get a free screening of Indie Game: The Movie. The film sets to encapsulate the experience of three different indie developers and their struggles they face in their craft of game development. The movie hasn’t seen commercial release yet, but it should be on everyone’s radar. Behind the all of the tropes one would associate with a documentary and their exaggerated portrayals, Indie Game: The Movie sets out to show you every gut wrenching moment and it may just even touch your heart.

GDC 12: The IGF Recap

As the stage lighting slowly dims, the spotlight closes in on Andy Schatz of Monaco fame, who's hosting the fourteenth annual Independent Games Festival Awards. He approaches the podium as the audience grows restless with excitement. I was denied the opportunity to live blog the event, but figure what I could do instead was write about the actual event itself, and talk about one of the most significant events in the industry today (sadly one of the most overlooked as well).
