The Warp Zoned staff doesn’t always agree on what we’re most looking forward to, but this month, we’re all in agreement about one game… Super Mario Maker! We’re all ready to hop in and start building Mario levels and going through each other’s creations. Other than that, it’s a pretty varied month here at Warp Zoned!
Hit the jump to see what’s got us the most excited this September.
Super Mario Maker… no other games matter. None at all. I want to build my own Mario courses and I want to discover hundreds (maybe even thousands) of new courses created by people all across the world. I’ve been playing Mario games for almost as long as I can remember, and the possibilities offered by Super Mario Maker are almost too much for me to handle.
That said, Lego Dimensions and its Batman meets Scooby-Doo meets Doc Brown meets Homer Simpsons meets every other beloved character from the last fifty years has to super excited. I know it’s for kids, but just consider me a big kid for the month of September. Avalanche’s Mad Max is for kids too, right?
I can understand why someone would love the philosophical leanings of Hideo Kojima and his last game for Konami, Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, but that’s not why I want to play video games.
There are a few games I’m super pumped about for September! Armello looks awesome, and I can’t wait to try it. Super Mario Maker also looks amazing, and I’m starting to get excited about owning a Wii U! Anyone who knows me knows how thrilled I am to finally be playing Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime in the confines of my own home. And, of course, there’s the ridiculously amazing looking Blood Bowl 2 as well. There’s so much to be excited about this month!
I’d love to get my hands on Super Mario Maker! I have never been taken by game-building games like LittleBigPlanet, but being able to construct Mario levels and then play those others have created… the possibilities are endless.
I’m actually excited for Destiny: The Taken King, as I’m hoping to pick up a PS4 soon (now that the new slim-ish model is out in the wild), and this seems like an ideal jumping in point for Destiny. With more content and story to start off with, maybe it will remove some of the earlier issues that marred the experience of the first players.
Well, there only really seems to be one game that I’m interested in, and that is Super Mario Maker. When the Wii U was first announced, I immediately thought a Mario level editor would be perfect for the system. It only took about three years, but I’m finally getting my wish! I’ll be editing and publishing and playing and editing, and it’s going to be awesome.
I would like to get Lego Dimensions, but that price point, coupled with my wallet-draining Amiibo obsession, may make me put the brakes on it (at least until I can get a good sale price).
