Weekly Warp-Up: Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon is Real? 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…

Ubisoft’s neon-drenched Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. It doesn’t require the original Far Cry 3 to play and doesn’t include any callbacks to its parent game beyond using the same engine. So why does it include the Far Cry 3 name? The world may never know, but the wave of 80s cliches has already turned this into a must-have game in May.

This week we also chatted with TJ Lutz of Pwnee Studios about Cloudberry Kingdom and how development is going (specifically on the Wii U) as well as his feelings on how hard a platformer should be. Finally this week, we took a look at Supergiant’s Transistor in our continuing coverage of PAX East 2013.
