Weekly Warp-Up: Nintendo’s NES Classic Edition Made My Week…

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…

Christmas is coming early this year, because earlier this week, Nintendo announced they will release the NES Classic Edition, a microconsole pre-loaded with 30 games this November. Yes, it’s just a repackaged Wii with a variety of Virtual Console content on a hard drive, but it is also undeniably awesome.

There in’t much else to talk about this week (probably too many people obsessed with Pokemon Go), but believe it or not, employees from Ubisoft actually helped educate the world on the correct way to pronounce Ubisoft. Turns out, everybody’s right!

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned, UK Correspondent Andrew Rainnie turned his crowdfunding eye towards Escape From Pleasure Planet in the latest edition Kickstart This! and I reviewed Tumblestone, your new favorite puzzle game.

More news from the past seven days can be found after the break.
