PPR Presents Play Play: Assault Android Cactus

hat do you get when through in colorful robot heroes, bright danger lasers, and a struggle between good and evil that has absolutely nothing to with cacti? You Android Assault Cactus of course, the feverishly fast-paced, brightly colored Twin-stick shooter from Witch Beam Games.

Join Ser and George as they blast their way through the gauntlet of levels and challenges that await within this indie love-letter to  old-school shooters, all the while George makes some shitty references to Code Lyoko…

PPR Presents Play Play: Final Fantasy Type-0 HD

t’s always a joy when the west gets a Final Fantasy game that they originally missed out on, and the deal sounds even sweeter when the game gets an HD facelift to boot; which is why it’s disappointing that this long lost Final Fantasy gem is so disappointing, and violent too.

Like, weirdly violent, if adorably birds being bloodied death doesn’t sound like a good time, then consider this your trigger warning, Final Fantasy Type-0 HD has lots of this shit from the start…

Ser and George attempt to find the fun that the game has to offer, and discuss design elements that they feel would be more ideal for an action RPG title (and they’ll try to find as many as they can in this pretty mess of game too.)

PPR Presents Play Play: Titan Souls

he thrill of pushing against overwhelming odds to the brink of death is a fantasy that anyone fan of a good action tale can relate to, but there is such a thing as overkill, and Titan Souls is a prime example of running a bit too far with the concept.

Join George and Ser as they stumble through the pixelated ruins of giants and monsters in Acid Nerve’s Titan Souls, and try to make sense of all death suffered in the process—it’s the kind of shit that will break you from the start.

PPR Presents Play Play: Tiny Dangerous Dungeons

hile it’s easy to dismiss the vast majority of retro-inspired indie love letters available as of late, I feel like the sentiment is still far from accurate. It’s kind an almost-trend of where the accusations of pandering or creative stagnation flood the discussion of this pseudo sub-genre, and  hopping on board with the consensus is one of the more common displays of low-hanging fruit that I’ve seen on both the community, and industry fronts of video games today.

Which is why it warms the heart to seen a game that’s solid enough to stand as an exception to that very inclination, and Tiny Dangerous Dungeons from Adventureislands is that title. This particular Play Play is solo one with George at the helm, as he wanted to share the game with everyone in a way where the a video was the better format over a “Late To The Party” feature when it comes down to conveying all the thoughts he has about it. Enjoy the sporadic Play Play and be sure to find the game and buy it to support the developer if you like what you see in the video!

PPR Presents Play Play: Mortal Kombat X

The amount of progress that Netherrealm Studios has accomplished with the Mortal Kombat brand and it’s respective fighting engine is something that no one can deny. I mean, no other game has passionately embodied the phrase “shit gets real” quite like Netherrealm’s current offering, and we decide to get in on the madness.

Getting in on the cutting edge action of MK X, we discuss the visceral visuals of the franchise hitting the latest generation of gaming and the tech it offers, the evolution of the Kombat system (seriously, we can’t help ourselves) and the shelf life that X may just have for the year of 2015. It’s another Play Play, so kick up your feet and press that play button already.

PPR Presents Play Play: Mortal Kombat Arcade Kollection

here aren’t too many examples of a celebratory games that’re loaded with a tribute tour through all the best hits that made you what you are quite like Mortal Kombat Kollection…well, actually—scratch that.

There are a SHIT load of titles that are like that, and yeah; MK Kollection is ok or whatever when it comes down to it.

Join Andrew and George as fight down memory lane and spill all the digitized blood that they can as they discuss the history of Mortal Kombat Kraze (see what we did there) and share their own thoughts and attachment to the franchise at the start of our special look at the classic crimson-soaked tournament brawler on PPR’s Play Play!

PPR Presents Play Play: Super Mario 64 HD Unity Fan-Game

andom can certainly be a bit overzealous at times, especially when it comes to those who exhibit their devotion in ways that’re a bit unhinged; and then sometimes, it can truly be such a wondrous thing. In order to rigorously play test a new character controller schematic he was coding, a programmer by the name of Eric “Roystan” Ross decided to code a demo that would not only serve as an effective environment for testing, but one that would pay tribute to a gem from his childhood.

A high-definition overhaul of Super Mario 64’s first map, the Bob-omb Field, and boy is it pretty.

It’s a real shame that it had to be taken down so soon after Nintendo slapped the studious developer with a Cease & Desist, luckily, Georgie got some time to check it out, and show you guys what the fuss was all about in this quick little Play Play edition of the demo from Press Pause Radio!

PPR Presents Play Play: Hudson Selection Vol. 3: PC Genjin

his is the fourth day of our special look at the Bonk Series! We’ll be covering 10 of the bulbous-headed caveman’s titles over the week, and well; we won’t be covering any of them in any specific order either—so deal with it or whatever.

Exclusive to the land of the rising sun, The original title that started it all received a remake on the PlayStation 2 and Gamecube, and boy did Hudson take a lot of weird liberties with the visual style—which is kind of cool, but mostly disturbing.

Eh, it’s still pretty cool, but whether or not that it’s worthy enough to faithfully substitute the charm of the original is up for debate, and dammit, do we do just that! Why don’t you guys just go on ahead and click play now to check it out!
