Warpback: What We Played in November 2015


We played a little bit of everything here at Warp Zoned this month, from brand new heavy hitters like Fallout 4 to freemium games in the 3DS eShop like Nintendo Badge Arcade. We were busy little gamers and we loved every second of it! Read on to see the full list of what we played in November.

Plenty of lo-fi options occupied me during the month of November, including Chainsawesome’s Knight Squad on the PC and Xbox One. The party game, which is basically “Medieval Bomberman,” definitely took up the majority of my time with its relentless multiplayer. I even found the time to review it.

Elsewhere this month, I dug into the “single-stick” shooter Deathstate. The retro-themed game involves a heavy dose of Lovecraftian monsters and a unique mechanic where players only control the movement of a character who always targets the nearest group of enemies. It’s definitely an interesting change-of-pace for players who enjoy twin-stick shooters and the art style is great. In between Deathstate rounds, I snuck in a few Super Mario Maker courses as well.

Over in the mobile realm, I took Mike’s advice and downloaded Pac-Man 256. I have just one thing to say… how did it take nearly 40 years to create “Infinite Pac-Man”? Finally, I’ve reached the final boss in Alphabear… and he is impossible. I’ve never been this angry at a cartoon bear in my life (except for maybe that one time in 3rd Grade).

November was a really intense gaming month for me! I mistakenly started playing Persona 4 Golden right before Fallout 4 came out, so my free time has just become a struggle of which one to play at any given time. I’m in love with both of them and have put about 40 hours into each! It’s been a really wild ride and I’m loving every second of it.

Other than that, I’ve just been playing mobile games! Twenty and Words With Friends are usual constants, but I’ve added the adorable GemPacked and the addictive Neko Atsume to the list as well. It’s been a terrific month for gaming!

After months of threatening to do it, I finally bagged myself a PS4, and have for the most part been strolling through my old haunt of London Town in Assassin’s Creed: Syndicate, which is proving to be a return to form for Ubisoft. I’ve also been digging my way (pun intended) through Shovel Knight on the Wii U, which is great to play in Off-TV Mode.

This month was a bit of an appetizer platter for me. I didn’t get too heavy into any one game, but played a little bit of a lot of games. I played Destiny and Grand Theft Auto V, Rocket League and Minecraft, and Super Smash Bros. For Wii U and BoxBoy.

I also downloaded the 3DS freemium game Nintendo Badge Arcade. I love playing skill crane games, and being able to modify my 3DS Home Screen with the badges I’ve won in this game is just too much fun. I even put a couple bucks into it. I know, I’m part of the problem, but it is such a sweet problem.
