The PPR Top Five Week of 10/25/09 - Horror Movies and Games

Hey everyone, this is Toast welcoming you to the Press Pause Radio Top Five for the week of October 25, 2009. And because my Top Five was too long to reasonably fit in the title, I will display it here. The Top Five this week is Horror Movies That Should Be Games. Sorry about the long winded title, I really could not figure out a easier way to say it. Hopefully the explanations below will be more informative. And quick side note; Horror Movie in this post is a very broad term. I understand that the five movies discussed may not be true horror movies, but they are all a part of the genre in some way. Okay now that the horror fanboys are satisfied, onto the Top Five. Enjoy!

The Add-Console Concept: A Press Pause Radio Retrospective

So I figured I would do another perspective on a concept that just became wildly unpopular among the gaming community & developers themselves. I'm talking about Add-on consoles, consoles that can not function on their own but instead, use the resources of another console in unison to create a new platform, Now there was major surge of these consoles about in the early nineties, with Sega, NEC-TTi, & Atari with their add-on consoles & Nintendo nearly doing so themselves through a failed agreement with Sony.

The PPR Top 5 Week-09/20/2009 Top 5 2.5D Side-Scrollers

So this is also another new thing we will be doing with the Top 5 segment for Press Pause Radio. we've been posting up the choices & lists on our pages of course as well as discussing them on the episodes that we have done so far but now I have also decided to do some in depth looks at the choices that are made for each new episode & off course why they were chosen or what kind of light we felt that Press Pause Radio would like to have brough to it. We have already dont a few Top 5 lists since I introduced it back from episode 5 so with this being the newest list to start this new trend I figured I'd get the ball rolling with a bit of an off kilter list if you will about a sub genre that doesn't get the love that it deserves which is the 2.5D side-scrolling of games

PPR 8

 

So you probably saw this coming & well yeah...I don't blame you, even though it was the Sega console that was considered to be the last stand that Sega had left to give & fell under pressure against the launch of the Sony Playstation 2 & many other circumstances as well, the Dreamcast is still regarded as one of the most celebrated consoles in video game history & leaves a legacy within just a half of year making it a full two years while the last game release was in Febuary of 2002, retail sales were slashing prices on remaining product, the Dreamcast has a legacy that is up to par to even rival the Playstation 2 which is just now nearing discontinuation...

Prince of Persia: A Press Pause Radio Retrospective

Before we begin, I’d like to answer some of the questions you may be having right now. Yes, I am writing about a game that was released late last year.  And yes, some people did like the previous Prince of Persia titles compared to this one. I’ll admit that this is the first Prince of Persia game I have played, and so I may have a biased opinion of this game. And finally, no, I will not spoil the game if you have not played or finished it yet. Ok so now that we’ve gotten that out of the way allow me to discuss why I enjoyed talking to Elika so much, and why Prince of Persia has stuck with me long after finishing the game and the Epilogue.
