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…
It was (and still kinda is) impossible to turn on a television this week without getting a face full of Pope Francis. Time Warner Cable has devoted an entire channel to his visit, and most other news channels are completely papered over with Papal Fever. His Holiness is even the star of Popemobile: The Pontiff No Return, a new side-scrolling shooter for Android devices that was developed by The Irish Catholic newspaper. That’s a lotta Papa.
Thankfully, your friendly neighborhood Warp Zoned editors were compelled to compile this week’s biggest news stories for the Weekly Warp-Up and we start with a review of Extreme Exorcism… a game that asks players to exorcise a house full of demons. Hmm, you know, the Pope could really help out with that, don’t you think?
I guess we just have to accept it, Pope Francis has taken America by storm. Maybe he’ll even offer a blessing for the rest of the Weekly Warp-Up, which you can find after the break.
