PPR Presents Play Play: Mirrormoon EP

ooming with Rob Rich for this year's PAX East has led to many conversations and even more debates, which have been great; but there was one that just couldn’t be dropped—how inaccessible Mirrormoon EP is, and Rob jumped to the call. I want to make it clear that I really enjoyed the concept and atmosphere of Mirrormoon purely out of an aesthetic view, but I feel like the structure of the game borders over cryptic and gets straight esoteric with some of the objectives and the complete lack of direction.

So in short, this impromptu Play Play is Rob jumping at the opportunity to remind me that I’m wrong while subtly implying that I’m an idiot in the process, and we all win.

PPR presents Play Play: Megaman Unlimited

k, that’s it, we’ll be the first one to say it; Mighty No. 9 is only anticipated as highly as it is because of the lack of new Megaman software from Capcom—it’s the only reason. While some of you are already angrily typing some sort of response as to why we’re dumb or something, we want to bring you guys a Play Play of a certain fan’s response to the void Capcom has maintained, in one of the best love letters the Blue Bomber has yet to receive. We play Megaman Unlimited and it’s awesome, go ahead and click play on the video and then agree with us with the fierceness.

Well, Gabe Newell thinks so, and he’s out to prove it with his wave of Gabe-Cubes, err, we mean Steam Boxes.

QCF: Contrast

hose familiar scenes from a movie you can’t quite remember, the ones with the atmosphere of streetlights and Deco art posters, streets filled with cabarets and burlesque shows for fellas and dames— The Great Gatsby withstanding , the 1920’s is an era so vaguely romanticized for its appearance over culture . It was always what was seen or heard versus what was said or done, with all of the style and bravura on stage and never too much indulged on the history and culture behind it.

Compulsion Games means to tell a story that’s born in the thick of it, and while the fiction is rich in intrigue and complimented with exquisite eye candy--Contrast is a collective of ambitious gameplay mechanics that manage to grease that platforming wheel, the rotation however, doesn’t come close to spinning full circle.

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!

PAX Prime 2013: Kicking down the Stinky Footboard

 can admit that I have issues when it comes to playing complex video games. So many of the buttons are a strain to reach and different combinations are at times difficult to execute. This is greatly expanded whenever I need to play something on a PC using a keyboard and mouse. By the time I find out which key allows me to run, or how to change the camera mode I have already been taking out by the opposition. It would be nice if playing the game could be simplified in some way, perhaps with the assistance of a strangely named computer accessory. This is where the Stinky Footboard comes to the rescue.
