Weekly Warp-Up: Summer Heat 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…

The thermometer is making the idea of sitting inside all Summer with a stack of video games sound mighty appealing. And here’s what was hot at Warp Zoned this week.

We talked to Walt Williams, the Lead Writer of Spec Ops: The Line, about his controversial new military shooter. Williams has a lot to say about the nature of war, what that should mean for video games, and why the city of Dubai’s very existence is a puzzle to him.

More hot stories can be found after the jump thanks to this edition of the Weekly Warp-Up.
