PPR 81

t’s here everyone, and no, we’re not talking about Gamestick. The next generation has finally dawned upon the gaming community in its entirety and we’re here give impressions and chew bubble gum (but we’re all out of bubble gum and us chewing that shit would make for horrible radio anyway.)

We cover everything about Sony and Microsoft’s new machines in every imaginable detail in this special episode. We make predictions, Andrew hates on the Ouya, and James isn’t a fan of Killer Instinct with some Xbox Bing on top—Listen to all thoughts here and stand by as we prepare our annual Game of year award show, The Golden Zonkeys; Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

PPR 80

ven though we are approaching the launch of new hardware to kick us off into a new generation of video games, there’s still going to be a lot of familiar franchises getting new entries with the same old gameplay in the years to follow whether we like it or not. IS that a good thing though, isn’t the idea of annual sequel to your favorite video game like the best thing ever? We talk about how it could be a good thing and spoilers; why it mostly isn’t.

The Wolf among Us, Sonic Lost World, Batman Arkham Origins, Next-generation talk, The Guided Fate Paradox, Corbin Bernsen, Quidditch, and so many other topics fly out of lips this week so enjoy it folks as we prep for the next episode—Next Generation launch impressions.

PPR 79

t’s that time again, and speaking of time, it’s a merciless beast to us all. We gather around the podcasting table to discuss the inevitable cross-dressing, uhhh, cross-streaming, ummm cross-crissing? Well, what we mean to say is that the next generation of gaming isn’t manning the ship on it’s own for some time, because the older siblings of the Ps4 and Xbox One aren’t shoving off just yet; it may seem like a small thing, but it’s going to affect us in a number of ways.

Aside from all that talk, we dive into your emails on Select Feedback, get nuts with Pokémon X/Y, gab on Final Fantasy XIV, and much more—it’s Press Pause Radio folks, did you miss us?

PAX Prime 2013: PPR TALKS PAX

fter our amazing meet and greet at GameWorks last night, we decided to record the official PAX podcast of Press Pause Radio, and it’s a doozy. We were humbled by our friends and special guests joining the record, The Sunken Treasures crew, Aaron and Sara, and another close friend of the show, and 1UP alumni, Ben Bizzle. This show includes Sexy talk, Seagrams, indie games galore, and irrational hatred for Rare.

PAX Prime 2013: Hands-on with Ryse

ack in 2011 during Microsoft’s E3 Keynote, The people behind the color green were desperately pushing support for their new peripheral: Kinect. Ryse, a Roman gladiator action game was one of the promotions for that hands-free hotness Microsoft wanted to jazz everyone up about.

Flash forward to 2013, where all of Microsoft’s previous enthusiasm for the Kinect is significantly reduced, Ryse reemerges as an Xbox One launch title with Kinect support being wildly scaled back, so naturally, I found the development intriguing and decided to scope out just how well Crytek transitioned that shift in development, and finishing the nearly finished build the floor didn’t exactly project any positive prospect for the finished product come launch day.

Press Pause Radio at PAX Prime 2013

t’s been a while right? Thank Bullet Heavens (yeah, we just did that) that Ser was able to lead the charge for new content on Press Pause Radio these last couple of weeks, because our extended break was a little longer than we had hoped for. Wouldn’t you know it though? The moment we are ready to come back, it just so happens that it's the week of PAX Prime 2013, so we’re going to come out and hit the streets of Seattle, and we’re hitting them hard, like…uh; hard-hitters--yeah!

We’ll be on the floor mingling with every new indie game we comes across, and expect us to do some talking with the likes of Sega, Capcom, Ubisoft, and more in the biggest PAX we’ve covered yet. We’ll be recording a catch up a podcast just to clear some air from our absence on the web, then we’ll be dropping some podcast specials with some friends and give all the scoops and scores from Friday to Monday so stay tuned on the site!

Also, if you guys have any specific requests or feedback, be sure to email us at mailbag@presspauseradio.com, and if you guys are going to be there then don't be shy -- come say hello!

PPR 74

his is quite possibly the most ridiculous E3 predictions podcast we’ve done yet.  To start, Ser hates it, Arrested Development is fucking it up, Andrew and James get wrapped in Dungeon and Dragons Next (yeah seriously, it’s like they think they’re on that other podcast or something), and George is an asshole for buying the Super Mario Bros the movie soundtrack on Vinyl. Among all the other nonsense, the gang manages to squeeze in some games from their backlog and predict some events and releases to come out of the biggest video game conference of the year, which is debuting in less than a week. There’s plenty of PS4, Xbox One, and even Ouya talk so check it out and enjoy the show.

Here’s the first bout guys, so enjoy!
