PPR 76: The MUZAK Special

he sounds and melodies of video games have never been better, and we’re here to prove it to y’all. We here at PPR are here to take you on a wild ride as we sound off (sigh, no pun intended) our picks from the seventh generation of video games before it’s officially put to rest. Joining our hijinks, are friends and way cooler dudes than us, The Megas as we present to you the longest show we’ve ever recorded. On the way, we rant about a whole ton of games, discover James’ disgusting penchant for the Juggalo culture, and everyone ragging on George for his new favorite Gatorade.

Rate and subscribe to us iTunes today, follow us on our new Twitch page, mail us at our new email Mailbag@presspauseradio.com, and be sure to stop by at our Forums and register as well! P.S. We did have some show notes in line to drop, but upon further review, they were fucking awful, so yeah, enjoy our long special and get ready for the upcoming Last of Us Games Club!

PPR Anniversary episode voter poll

his Saturday is going to be a big day for us people; it’ll be 4 amazing fucking years since we launched Press Pause Radio. Last year, we chose to record commentary for the cinematic classic, The Wizard; with a drinking game on top—we’re going to make that very same mistake again this year, and this time, we’re giving you guys the choice. We’ve made it pretty easy, all you have to do is vote in this incredibly convenient poll, and determine which particular film will play as we record all the horrible choices we’re going to make watching it, and this is for your entertainment folks. We’ll be checking the results this Friday night so get at us!

Which Movie should be feature presentation for Press Pause Radio's four year anniversary special?
   

So the votes have it, we're going to be recording commentary for the notoriously awful 1993 film, Super Mario Bros.-The Movie. Directed by the fickle husband/wife duo Rocky Morton and Annabel Jankel, the movie exists as a scar in everyone of our childhoods be it the terrible acting or the criminally liberal take on the lore of the Japanese video game icon, this movie is an abortion pure and simple. It gets better though folks because not only will we be recording commentary, we'll be playing the officially recognized drinking game for this dog turd of a film, here are the rules for you folks...

Every time that Mario and/or Luigi refer to each other by name or mention Daisy, take a drink.
Whenever “the rock” is mentioned (or meteorite), take a drink.
Anytime the bob-omb appears randomly, take a drink.
Every time there is a forced reference to the Super Mario games, take a drink.
Every time, the “fungus” is shown on screen (you know which one), take a drink.
Everytime the ‪Devo Machine‬ is used to make someone evolve or de-evolve, take a drink.
Whenever it is mentioned, or Mario and Luigi use their plumbing skills, take a drink.

Press Pause Radio presents The Golden Zonkey Awards of 2012

e are nearing the end of 2012, and with the end of this giant year for video gaming, we here at Press Pause Radio have decided to shake things up a bit. In the past, we normally just choose a personal Top 10 list for the games released within the year in which we talk to a certain degree as to why they made our list; we figured that this wasn’t going to work for us this time around. Therefore, this year, we’re going all out with our own game of the year award show that we’ll be recording instead; aptly titled, The Golden Zonkies!

Below is a list of the eligible titles that we have all nominated to win the particular Golden Zonkey awarded for the category displayed. We’ll be recording this weekend and updating this post with winners for the appropriate categories as we publish the podcast. Until that happens, be sure to check out what’s been nominated for the official 2012 Golden Zonkey Awards!

PPR Two Year Anniversary Special

This is the moment you've all been waiting for; The Press Pause Radio Two Year Anniversary Extrazaganza™! (Not really trademarked, sorry).  For this episode, we pull out all the stops for you, our faithful listeners. We have a full room of PPR contributors along with Ignition Entertainment's Shane Bettenhausen to discuss the importance and evolution of video game podcasts. Having Shane on the show was a great experience for all of us, since he pioneered the  video game podcast during his time with 1up and we greatly appreciate him taking time out of his busy El Shaddai schedule to be on the show. 

Stay tuned after our normal show for a retrospective on all of our best moments during our two years in existence. Listeners past and present will really enjoy this trip down memory lane full of singing, cursing and Hadoukens! Thanks for two great years and we hope for many more in the future. The amazing artwork for this episode is courtesy of Wil Brendel, who is an amazing artist you should be checking out. Enjoy!
