Bullet Heaven #147 Double Feature - Strike Witches: Hakugin no Tsubasa

nime licensed games are often of the RPG or Visual Novel type these days. That's not to say that others don;t exist, far from it. But often, the Visual Novel style will bleed heavily into the other genre in question. Strike Witches: Hakugin no Tsuabasa is one such game... but as a super light-on-story, fanservice-heavy property to begin with, how does it stack up?

t’s only been a week since the release of the anticipated DIY-centric adventure about gaming’s star plumber, and we’ve already been treated to some of the niftiest stages, and levels to have ever come out of the minds of intrepid gamers everywhere.

Seriously, some of the stuff to come out of Super Mario Maker so far has generated a sensation that contemporaries like Little Big Planet could only dream of, and it’s only going to get bigger. So while we’re preparing our review of the game, and enjoying some of the shenanigans ourselves, I figure that I would share with you all, my top five favorite levels to have generated out of the fun little Nintendo experiment so far and their respective access codes—in no particular order mind you, they’re all really awesome.

PPR Presents Play Play: Super Air Zonk

k, so we did get a bit distracted when we first started our special look at the Bonk series the last couple of months and just ended up being really sporadic with our video coverage, but let me tell you, we sure as shit didn’t forget about it

This latest entry is our look at Super Air Zonk, the rare, often forgotten sequel to the shoot-em up spinoff of the iconic, bulbous-headed Neanderthal. This quote unquote “Rockabilly Paradise” goes in a significantly different direction with its gameplay in comparison to its predecessor, and Ser and George discuss upon whether or not that was a good thing, with flying bento box attacks and all.

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.

Bullet Heaven HD, Episode 133 - Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser

n episode 128 of Bullet Heaven HD, we took a look at Astro Port's Armed Seven, a sidescrolling mech-based shmup. It's not the only mech based "pure" STG they've released though; the 70's anime-soaked Supercharged Robot Vulkaiser is also a pretty neat addition to Astro Port's roster. But how does it stack up?
