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 Summer drought is almost over (for games and rain… loved the thunderstorms in the northeast on Friday), so now is the best time to start looking to the Fall. Thankfully, gamemakers are cooperating with this wish by announcing release dates for many of their biggest Fall projects.
This week we learned that Way of the Samurai 4 will be available on August 21, the God of War Saga and InFamous Collection will be released on August 28, LittleBigPlanet Karting will be in stores on November 6, Code of Princess will be released on October 9, and the various versions of Hell Yeah! will be available to download in late September and early October.
