PPR 106

h wow, it has been awhile since I've been the person responsible for putting up new content. I will try to make sure that this does not all come crashing down but I cannot make any promises, Internet. Speaking of garbage fires this is Toast welcoming you to another episode of Press Pause Radio where we discuss the Juggalo March, banana peeling tactics, Mario not being a plumber, and wedding advice. That last one had it's ups and downs but we all learned a little more about each other. Sharing is caring.

The normal crew of GeorgieboysAXE, Ser Flash and I also experiment with web cameras and discuss current hot topics including Sean Vanaman and MCA takedowns involving PewDewPie and Firewatch. Our show also reminds everyone that there are a ridiculous amount of games coming out this year such as Sonic Mania, Project Octopath Traveller, Hellblade Setsuna, Yakuza Kiwami, Uncharted Lost Legacy, Destiny 2, Neo Geo Archives; Aero Fighters 2, Neo Geo Archives; Spin Masters, and a newer indie title on the market called Minecraft.

So sit back and enjoy this audio experience, possibly while holding a protest sign depicting a Hatchetman in one hand and in the other some refreshing Faygo Moon Mist. It's the American way. 

Mail us at our new email Mailbag@presspauseradio.com, leave a voicemail at 469-PPR-TALK, and be sure to stop by at our Forums if you haven’t already registered and post your thoughts about the show. Finally, make sure to rate and subscribe to us on iTunes and YouTube, follow us on Twitch page and Twitter, and finally take part in our Facebook and Steam group!

Mudprints Unboxes FHR: Hyperkin Hyperclick Retro Style Mouse 

ou might think that Mario Paint is where the Super NES Mouse begins and ends, but there are all kinds of games that support it. Unfortunately, the original Super NES mouse is far from ideal nowadays, espceically with cheap, effective tech upstaging Nintendo's early-90's hardware. But Hyperkin is striking back with a brand new OPTICAL mouse for the Super NES and Super Famicom! How does it stack up? Let's take a look!!

Mudprints Unboxes FHR: Hyperkin SmartBoy

laying vintage Game Boy Games is the very essense of what portable gaming was in the 90's. But without complete command of the nuclear brightness of the Sun, it's kind of hard to do these days, especially with aging, degrading LCD screens on the older original units. Enter Hyperkin with the once-a-joke, now-a-sweet-piece SmartBoy that turns (almost) any USB-C smartphone into a classic Game Boy! How does it hold up? Let's take a look!

Mudprints Unboxes: RetroN HD Update

When we took a look at the ReroN HD by Hyperkin, Famicom games didn't work for us. On a hunch, we bought a 60-72 pin converter with a less complicated build. How did it fare??

PPR at the Movies: Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light Review

he impact that a video game can have on any one person and the relationships that they share with the people closest to them is hardly a foreign concept these days, but it’s certainly one that hasn’t had the best representation in films or television that that use it as the main framing artifice for a character-driven narrative.

Whether it’s the light-hearted classic, The Wizard, where a bunch of kids embark on a journey of self-discovery through their shared love of gaming, or Reign over me, a more somber film about a traumatized man who’s coping with the death of his family through his PlayStation 2; this MacGuffin has a storied history of good intentions, and awful execution.

In spite of this checkered past, Square-Enix took on a gamble to collaborate with Japanese media company Oricon to tell the story of a son concocting an elaborate plan to rekindle the bond between him and his estranged father through the iconic MMO, A Realm Reborn: Final Fantasy XIV within an eight episode series.

While the premise sounds like one that’s ripe for gross exploitation, the end-result is thankfully much more heartfelt in its presentation, as Final Fantasy XIV: Dad of Light strives on to be a touching tale of the human condition that manages to authentically capture the timeless charm of Final Fantasy in the process.
