warpzonedwishlist-residentevil2remake-header

Resident Evil 2 fans rejoice! Capcom finally got the message and decided to give us the remake we’ve been begging for since 2002… but what direction will it take? The Resident Evil remake on the GameCube remained incredibly faithful to the original, but Resident Evil 4 later introduced an all-new style which catapulted the series to new popularity. Now, Resident Evil 7 seems poised to go in another direction — even while Capcom embraces the past. While we await any potential news on this exciting remake, we here at Warp Zoned have compiled a list of updates we would love to see! Don’t be afraid to read more…

Xbox Store Today: Steep, The Dwarves, Stern Pinball Arcade, Furi

Last night’s Game Awards celebrated the year’s best new experiences while also giving us a very interesting glimpse at the future of gaming. But there’s still a handful of new releases to talk about today, and they’re now available to download from the Xbox Games Store.

Ubisoft’s Steep brings players to the very top of the mountain and then gives them four ways to get down: Skiing, Snowboarding, Paragliding, or Wingsuiting. The open world game is now available to download for the Xbox One and the publisher promised that “the mountain is yours to explore.”

Also newly available for the Xbox One today is The Dwarves, an RPG from THQ Nordic based on the novel of the same name by Markus Heitz. According to the publisher, The Dwarves will includes 15 playable characters, a strong story, and tactically challenging real-time battles.

Finally this week, Stern Pinball Arcade will attempt to recreate classic tables on the Xbox One including Star Trek Vengeance, Last Action Hero, and Starship Troopers; and Furi is a twin-stick with boss design by Takashi Okazaki (Afro Samurai).

You can find more information about all of these games after the break.

gameawards-statueThe 2016 Game Awards were filled with surprises, but I’m sure no one was shocked when Blizzard’s Overwatch walked away with the most statuettes last night, including the coveted “Game of the Year” prize. The popular online shooter also won the “Best Multiplayer” award, as well as the fan-voted “Best eSports Game” award. And Blizzard was honored for their development work on Overwatch with the “Best Game Direction” award.

Rocket League’s “Starbase ARC” update announced at Game Awards 2016

Developer Psyonix, creator of the wildly-popular Rocket League, announced an out-of-this-world update to their automotive soccer title. The update, entitled Starbase ARC, brings the Rocket League universe to the final frontier.

Starbase ARC, an homage to Psyonix’s critically-acclaimed mobile title, ARC Squadron, is an octagonally-shaped space station orbiting a desert planet in a distant galaxy. Lasers fire whenever goals are scored, starships battle it out in the skies, and planetoids float eerily by in the distance to create one of the most epic Rocket League atmospheres yet.

Launching December 7th, the Rocket League Starbase ARC arena will be free, and a similarly-styled premium car will be available for $1.99. This update will also introduce a Custom Training Mode that allows players to create their own training sequences, and upload them for other players to try out. More info on Custom Training can be found at Rocket League’s official website.

Get an “Extended Look” at Telltale’s Walking Dead: A New Frontier at the 2016 Game Awards

Not satisfied enough with releasing one trailer for an upcoming game, Telltale Games tonight also released an “Extended Look” trailer for A New Frontier, the third season of The Walking Dead. In this season, series mainstay Clementine is not the only main character. Instead, we see the zombie apocalypse through the eyes of a new character, Javier, with Clem along for the ride as a supporting character. The “Extended Look” trailer gives us a good idea of the events that befell Javier’s family at the onset of the outbreak, and then quickly jumps to the present-day, where he meets up with Clementine.

A special two-part premiere of Telltale’s The Walking Dead: A New Frontier will be released on December 20th. The remainder of the episodes will launch in 2017.
