Weekly Warp-Up: Gamescom 2016 In Review…

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…

This year’s Gamescom expo was a relatively low-key event, though Konami managed to surprise everyone by announcing Metal Gear Survive, the first game in the Metal Gear franchise without Hideo Kojima’s involvement. Though we still know very little about it, fans don’t seem pleased that Konami decided to add interdimensional zombies to a franchise best known for its deeply philosophical themes.

Less surprising was The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild‘s coronation as the “Best of Gamescom.” After it’s massive unveiling at E3, Nintendo’s upcoming adventure game continues to overshadow every other game currently in development.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, we took a look at Dangerous Golf, the first game from the ex-Burnout devs at Three Fields Entertainment.

You can find more news from Gamescom after the break including updates on Injustice 2, Resident Evil 7: Biohazard, and Mass Effect. (more…)

Weekly Warp-Up: Let’s Talk About the Nintendo NX Some More…

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…

Earlier this week, Square Enix announced plans to bring Dragon Quest X to the NX in Japan. While we still don’t know any specifics about Nintendo’s next console, the game announcements are starting to pile up. So it only made sense to create The Big List of Nintendo NX Games. I know that this “Big List” technically only includes a few titles so far, but it’s a start.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, the newest Kickstart This! column took a look at Eliosi’s Hunt, an overhead shooter from Brazilian developer TDZ Games.

Weekly Warp-Up: Still Reading Back Issues of Nintendo Power…

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…

I have to admit, I’m still poring over almost every issue of Nintendo Power that was added as a free download to the Internet Archive this week. If you’re a sucker for video game history, this collection is a real treasure trove of what things were like back in the late 80s/early 90s. And best of all… no terrible Sega advertisements!

And speaking of retro games, earlier this week, Innex Inc announced the The Retro-Bit Generations, yet another HDMI microconsole with more than 100 built-in 8-bit/16-bit games from Capcom, Sega, Jaleco, and Irem. It’ll be released this Fall.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned, the staff got together to discuss What We Played in July 2016 and to look ahead to The Games of August 2016. As you might have guessed, those were rather short conversations.

Weekly Warp-Up: Is This the Nintendo NX?

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…

If you find yourself on the geek spectrum, I’m sure you spent the last seven days recovering from a Comic-Con-induced coma. Like they always say in superhero movies… a storm is coming… and this massive wave of pop culture will surely envelop everything in its path. So it was nice to get a little bonkers with new rumors about Nintendo’s upcoming NX console.

According to the latest reports from industry insiders, the NX will be a handheld/console hybrid that features detachable controllers for on-the-go multiplayer gaming. If these rumors pan out, NX owners will also be able to attach the console to a base station for TV-based play.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, Andrew Rainnie filed another Kickstart This! column and pitched crowdfunding fans on Columnae: A Past Under Construction.

Weekly Warp-Up: Comic-Con 2016 in Review…

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’s Comic-Con weekend, so get ready to get geeky and nerdy with all the latest video game news. That includes our look at 10 Superheroes and Supervillains We Want to See in Injustice 2, which matches up nicely with the announcement that NetheRealm will add Wonder Woman and Blue Beetle to Injustice 2.

But the biggest news out of San Diego this weekend is that a pair of new Sonic games are in development at Sega including Sonic Mania (a 2D side-scroller due out next Spring) and Project Sonic (a new game from Sonic Team that’ll be released for the PC, PS4, Xbox One, and NX next Fall).

But for my money, the actual biggest announcement was that Bandai Namco will bring Pac-Man Championship Edition 2 to the PC, PS4, and Xbox One this September. Pac is back!

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, we cast our reviewer’s gaze on Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End. Nathan Drake had a good run, but it’s time to say goodbye.

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.

Weekly Warp-Up: Pokemon Go is a Go

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…

We’re in that rather blissful post-E3/pre-Gamescom rift where nothing much of note happens in the video game industry. Thankfully, Pokemon Go is here to make the Summer a little more exciting. But remember to steer clear of dead bodies when you’re trying to catch ’em all.

Another favorite Summer pastime is the recently-ended Summer Games Done Quick charity stream. But you can still go back and relive all of this year’s great runs, and don’t forget to watch the event’s “3-Legged Race” kickoff by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

Finally this week, the Warp Zoned staff got together to discuss What We Played in June (Doom! Mighty No. 9!) and The Games of July (Um…).

Weekly Warp-Up: Nintendo Schedules the Final Splatfest…

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…

Nintendo has a habit of sticking to tried and true franchise these days, but they took a big leap of faith with Splatoon last year and it paid off handsomely. The game sold millions of copies and made stars out of the Squid Sisters, Callie and Marie. Earlier this week, the consolemaker announced that Splatoon’s final Splatfest event will take place on July 22… but it’s certainly been quite a ride.

Hopefully we’ll get more Splatoon on the NX, but in the meantime, you can read the third part in our history of horror games right here: It’s In Your Blood: A History of Horror Games (Part Three).

And you can find the rest of this week’s news after the break. (more…)
