PPR Presents Play Play: Sonic The Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles

onic Mania is fast approaching, and while we don’t have our review ready just yet, we do have a few special looks at some choice cuts from the Blue Blur’s past that we think have influenced the direction seen in the new 2D throwback.

This particular title within the hero’s 16-bit catalog redefined what Sonic could do, and set the tone for the series for years to come in terms of an ensemble cast, and an adventure of epic proportions. Sonic The Hedgehog 3 and Knuckles may be better known as a meme than a classic these days, but it was the biggest game that featured the hog, and is considered to be the peak of the Sonic’s Genesis library.

Join Ser and George as they get down to some sweet tunes that may, or may not have had some compositional work done by all-time legend in pop music in this latest Play Play.

PPR Presents Play Play: Sonic CD

 

onic Mania is fast approaching, and while we don’t have our review ready just yet, we do have a few special looks at some choice cuts from the Blue Blur’s past that we think have influenced the direction seen in the new 2D throwback.

The next game up is one that gets a lot of praise despite being another obscure entry from the Hedgehog’s prime, as we sit down and play Sonic CD on the SEGA CD. Unlike Chaotix, this title has recently seen re-releases across a bevy of modern platforms, and it was in that re-release that Christian White got his start with the franchise under SEGA’s payroll as well.

Join Ser and George as they discuss whether or not this game deserves the distinction of being the best 16-bit Sonic title ever done in another new Play Play!

PPR Presents Play Play: Jack Bros.

hile Atlus is currently cracking down on anyone who decides to stream/upload late gameplay of Persona 5, we’re pretty confident that there’s one pseudo-Persona game that they could give a shit about anyone posting—WE ACTUALLY DID A PLAY PLAY OF JACK BROS.

Out of the twelve or so games that made it to the Virtual Boy, Jack Bros is considered to be one of the rarest games out there, and it stars the cutest adaptions of Shin Megami Tensei bestiary in obnoxious red on black action. Join Ser and Georgie as they get down to the criminally overlooked tunes of Atlus’ mascot powered rogue-like dungeon crawler for the doomed Nintendo console.

PPR Presents Play Play: Dark Souls III

he Ringed City expansion just dropped for Dark Souls III, and it reminded us that we’re still hunting through the kingdom of Lothric for those tasty souls. Dark Souls III is considered to be the best of the best from Hidetaka Miyazaki, as it reinvents some of the familiar combat dynamics around the Blooborne engine in the framework of the Souls franchise into a sequel that still has players hooked on it to this day.

Andrew has made it no secret that he hates these types of games, but he said what the hell, and decided to pull up seat alongside Georgie, swinging around ancient blades against nightmare demons until they died—a lot.

PPR Presents Play Play: Mass Effect: Andromeda

he Mass Effect Trilogy is one of the most beloved properties to have ever graced the last decade of gaming—regardless of how you may feel about the third entry of the series.

It isn’t too surprising that we would be treated to a new generation of the series, taking place in an entirely new galaxy, and led by a brand new hero named Ryder. Mass Effect: Andromeda is an exciting opportunity for the franchise to pick back up again after the debacle of the Mass Effect 3, but unfortunately, it’s an opportunity that BioWare really fumbles up on.

George and Andrew take to the helm to address some of the concerns we have the sequel, and whether or not it’s worth checking out in this new Play Play of Mass Effect: Andromeda.

PPR Presents Play Play: Yooka-Laylee

t was almost twenty years ago that a bear and bird captured the heart of nearly every cartridge-based gamer around—and that reverence for Banjo-Kazooie lives on to this day.

So much so that there’s been a noticeable void in the collectable platformer genre for the current generation that seems to be reserved for anything that’s 8-bit or 16-bit when it comes to retro tributes. Luckily, a group of ex Rare developers saw that gap, and decided to form their studio named Playtonic Games, crowd sourcing interest for a next-generation collectathon titled Yooka-Laylee, and man did that thing make a whole lot of money the moment it hit the internet—people were famished of this kind of adventure.

Well, the wait’s over, the game’s here, and while it might be George’s favorite game of 2017 so far, there are some problems that Ser and him just can’t help but address; here’s our Play Play for Yooka-Laylee.

PPR Presents Play Play: Super Mario 64: Last Impact

ts been 20 years since the Nintendo 64 came into being, and while some of us may not have been as excited as a screaming kid in his pajamas on Christmas morning for it, you can’t deny the last impression that it’s left on the video games, even after all of this time.

Case and point, someone just released a modified version of Super Mario 64, and the effort he put in to it could only be described as a true labor of love. Titled Last Impact, this version introduces 130 new stars set in brand new level, with 12 power-ups hailing from a plethora of Mario’s various adventures over the years, all done within the original engine of Super Mario 64.

George decides to give it a solo look, and see what all the fuss is about, you guys can also find links for it here, and check it out yourself before Nintendo’s legal team decides to go ham on the whole thing (pretty surprised that they haven’t so far to be honest.)

PPR Presents Play Play: P.T.

his shit is still scary, and off putting, and man, just;  it’s just weird that this one demo had SUCH an impact upon the gaming industry and what we ever imagined scary games could be.

It also was the first sign of troubled waters between Kojima and Konami.

George and Andrew walk through this nightmare-fueled hallway a bunch of times (THIS IS NOT A WALKTHROUGH) and just talk about how the cancellation of this game lead to Alison Road, and Resident Evil 7 (we’ll be releasing that one soon too.) Here’s the latest Play Play!
