PPR Presents Play Play: Tembo The Badass Elephant

elieve it or not, the titles that Game Freak develops that aren’t a Pokémon title, truly are the bizarre, and weird ones from their wheel house. Whether it’s an digital electric hero, or a drill happy jewel thief, the move-right-and-jump variety of games they release are just plain strange.

Like a militarized mercenary elephant with a chip on his shoulder, and we’re talking like, some shades of PTSD; like, what?

Published by Sega, we have Tembo The Badass Elephant, and he’s been tasked to take out some purple terrorist dudes, and George and Stevie are going to help lead the charge, and see if the game lives up to the studio lives up to the pedigree of the previous side-scrollers they’ve released.

Spoiler; George doesn’t think so, and Stevie tries to play the straight man in this latest Play Play.

PPR Presents Play Play: Heroki

emember when Sega had a full supply of wacky and zany characters at their disposal, and they would be mascots to a bunch of wild, and creative new gameplay mechanics and systems that you didn’t see anywhere else?

I mean, that’s not to say that every single one of them were good per say, but hey, they were different, and the latest title they’ve published for the iOS store definitely brings back some shades of that old Sega.

Join Georgie and Stevie as they spin, float, and jettison their way through the colorful world of Heroki; an adorably deformed good guy who put his sense of justice to work, all by using his goofy-ass helicopter head—check it out!

QCF: Sonic Boom: Rise of Lyric

hen the concept art for the new character designs of Sonic and his friends was first revealed, I was immediately outraged as I’m sure everyone else was, but I knew that even though I didn't like the designs, that didn't necessarily mean Sega would put out yet another terrible Sonic game.

 I was wrong.

Bullet Heaven HD, Episode 113 - Soukyugurentai
