PPR 99

ebruary can be many things; the home of Valentine’s Day, named after the saint who loved birds, and hated Pagans—or it’s the month that precedes one of the more eventful game release schedules of the year, your pick.

We here at PPR however, have decided to riff off the theme of love from Valentine’s instead, and talk about the aspect of sharing the experience of playing video games with your significant other, and what games we think would be ideal for that sort of social union.

It’s Personal Pause Radio up in here, and it’s a fun episode; we also talk at length about Arby’s, Street Fighter V, Lupe Fiasco, Unravel, Pocket Mortys, Umihara Kawase Trilogy, Gravity Rush Remastered, Project X Zone, Kanye West, and more.

Mail us at our new email Mailbag@presspauseradio.com, leave a voicemail at 469-PPR-TALK, and be sure to stop by at our Forums if you haven’t already registered and post your thoughts about the show. Finally, make sure to rate and subscribe to us on iTunes and YouTube, follow us on Twitch page and Twitter, and finally take part in our Facebook and Steam group!

QCF: Everybody's Gone To The Rapture

s the scene fades in, you stumble out into the tranquil beauty of the Yaughton countryside in Shropshire, England—investigating the irony of an environment that’s devoid of all human life, and yet breaming with the vibrancy of nature itself is the only thing that keep the unsettling tone from escalating into anything that.

This is the landscape of The Chinese Room’s latest adventure game, Everybody’s Gone To The Rapture, a disorienting mystery behind the disappearance of an entire village, and the grisly clues that have been left behind—it’s an experience that will leave you thinking, and somewhat shaken.

From the people behind the atmospheric voyage of Dear Esther, the independent studio places a different spin on the apocalypse concept that no other title has slowed down enough to explore in great detail—the human condition.

Life Through The Pixel Glass-07/16/2014

s I write this, I’m sipping on the cool refreshing double fisted cocktail of Gatorade’s Lime ‘n Cucumber swigged with a Rockstar Zero Carb Energy Drink; it’s a concoction that’s quite literally not for the faint of heart.

I’m staring at the screen, going over appointments for PAX Prime, reviews, and other stuff; it’s starting to sink in that we’re in a really slow period in video games right now—I honestly love these sort of periods too. We all work hard, play hard, and live hard; it’s hard to stay on top of something that eats away at our precious time and money. Don’t get me wrong, it may sound like I’m complaining but I’m only trying to illustrate that we can all use a break from playing games—let’s just idealize in other ways like cool art and shit.

Yup, you know where this is going, welcome to another edition of Life Through The Pixel Glass; I missed it, and I hope you all did too, let’s get this rolling.

PPR Games Club: Gone Home

ove is a lot of things, but rarely is it ever easy; especially when you’re a teenager. For our very first Games Club of 2014, we invite Shidoshi of EGM and The Morning Project fame to join us as we break down why Gone Home was one of the most influential games to release in 2013. We talk price, drop our opinion on just what kind of game it is, and of course; we spill into the territory of crazy theories and the possible weight they may hold to Kaitlin’s return.

Mail us at our new email Mailbag@presspauseradio.com, leave a voicemail at 469-PPR-TALK, and be sure to stop by at our Forums if you haven’t already registered and post your thoughts about the show. Finally, make sure to rate and subscribe to us on iTunes and YouTube, follow us on Twitch page and Twitter, and finally take part in our Facebook and Steam group!

 

Also, we sit down and play through the experience from start to finish to highlight all of the opaque allusions of the Gone Home saga, grab your favorite snack and watch with us won’t you?

e’re off to the first day of PAX Prime 2013 y’all, but before we go, why don’t we give you guys a new podcast to listen to? This is the official Afterhours debut and hell, we figured we would use it to catch up on some nonsense like all of the shit that happened while we were on our break from the site. George moved to a new house, broke his toes in the process, and found love again, while Andrew was getting shitty in Las Vegas—oh, and we even talk about some of the video games we’ve been playing too…
