Weekly Warp-Up: Better Than Football Edition

No, that’s not a typo. Welcome to the Weekly Warp-Up, your weekly wrap-up of the biggest and the best articles posted at Warp Zoned this week…

Michael Pachter is a name that needs no introduction among gamers.

The third episode of the Warp Zoned Podcast is live for your listening pleasure. Mike Gutierrez, Nicole Kline, and Ryan Littlefield talk about the games they’re playing, the games they’ve been busy reviewing, and the games they worked on at last week’s Global Game Jam. They also talked about the 3DS vs. the NGP and why they are – or aren’t – going to be buying those systems on launch day.

We also dug through hundreds of YouTube channels to creat the definitive list of official publisher/developer channels that we call the Guide to Gaming Videos on YouTube.

  • TimeSplitters 4 might be Crytek’s next project.

Forget the Super Bowl, the important contest going on today is deciding, once and for all, which console had the tougher cartridges: the Genesis or the Super NES?
