PPR 103

on’t have a cow man! We get that America’s favorite dysfunctional family may have hit a slump in the ratings as of late, but doesn’t mean that we’ve completely fallen out of love with the people of Springfield and their crazy misadventures. In fact, there hasn’t been a more noticeable void in gaming than the lack of Simpsons games—like, the only way you’re going to get your fill right now is through the expensive toy add-ons of Lego Dimensions, or the casual mobile app Tapped Out.

It’s a real bummer that we’re on the 28th season of the show, and that there hasn’t been any plans from EA to do anything with the license, and even to this day, Video Games owe a lot to The Simpsons.

Join George, Andrew, and Ser as they talk about their experiences with the older Bart-centric games, and the various titles we’ve seen come out of the property, among other important gaming commentaries that the show has covered in its near thirty-year run on television. The gang also talks about the discontinuation of the NES Classic, the disaster of Fyre Festival, the 2DS XL, Jack Bros, Nintendo Switch Sales, Destiny 2, Flinthook, Yooka-Laylee, the disappointment of the Wii U, and more on 103rd episode of Press Pause Radio!

Also, for those of you asking, my new jobs with RETRO Magazine and 148 Apps do not spell for the eventual end of PPR, All of us have plenty of steam left in this brand, and we have you guys to thank for it, so stay tuned, and keep coming back—we like your company.

Bullet Heaven HD, Episode 92 - Crisis Force (FC5#5)

onami has been a video game industry mainstay for almost as long as video games have been around. They were also behind several iconic NES and Famicom games back in the systems' heyday. One game that never quite reached mainstream legendary status at first was Crisis Force, released in 1991. With its Japan-only, Famicom only release, it has garnered quite a reputation in the decades since its release... but how does it stack up?

PAX Prime 2012: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance hands-on preview

It’s been several years since players have been able to control the angsty field operative code named Raiden, but with him coming out of his shell (quite literally so to speak) into the role of private cyborg ninja for hire, we’ll be able to finally play as the hardened super killer, courtesy of Platinum Games and Kojima Productions. Aside from all of the hype and fanboy love affairs, I was able to get a hands-on take with the preview build and find out just how grounded my expectations really were.

Bullet Heaven HD, Episode 44 - Otomedius Excellent

Power Bar? Check. Options? Check. Multitude of weapons and ships? Check. Cleavage? Wha...? Uhm... Yeah, triple check. Otomedius Excellent lands in North America as the first single, fully-original Gradius game in seven years. But was it worth the wait?
