While it still remains shrouded in mystery, the Nintendo NX got a big boost this week when the CEO of The Pokemon Company confirmed that a Pokemon game is in development for the Nintendo NX.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, we dove into No Man’s Sky with a complete review and took a look at Crashlands, another exploration game that was “Seen At PAX West 2016.”

Finally this week, Chris Cobb published Part Four in his look at the history of horror games… It’s In Your Blood: A History of Horror Games.

Weekly Warp-Up: The Last Guardian Was Delayed Again…

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…

The Tokyo Game Show kicked off to some disappointing news this year. In addition to a no-show from Nintendo’s NX console (though the consolemaker might have accidentally leaked a March 4, 2017 release date), Sony revealed that The Last Guardian has been hit with another delay. The very highly-anticipated game will now be released for the on December 6… hopefully.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, we dove into hands-on impressions of both Pit People (a strategy RPG from The Behemoth) and the MetaArcade Adventures Platform (a text adventure creation tool from MetaArcade).

Weekly Warp-Up: Mario Runs Towards the iPhone…

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 hit the ground running this week with the announcement that Super Mario Run will be available iOS devices this December. The endless runner will also make its way to Android devices in 2017. Not to be outdone, Sony officially announced the PS4 Slim, which will be released next week, and the PS4 Pro, which will be available in November.

Nintendo will no doubt take over the conversation once again when they reveal more about the NX, which is good news for our September 2016 Update to The Big List of Nintendo NX Games. To add to the list, Tank It!, an “anti-war” game from Bplus, was announced for the NX this week.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, the staff got together to discuss What We Played in August 2016 and The Games of September 2016. A review of Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 1: Realm of Shadows is also available for your perusal.

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…

Warp Zoned is in Seattle for this weekend’s PAX West expo, and there’s a lot of news coming out of the Washington State Convention Center. First up, Telltale announced a release date for Batman: The Telltale Series – Episode 2 (September 20) and the official title for the third game in the Walking Dead series (The Walking Dead: A New Frontier). We also heard from Microsoft about the Xbox One launch of Firewatch (which is happening on September 21), and Gearbox is bringing back Duke Nukem in Duke Nukem 3D: 20th Anniversary World Tour. And speaking of blasts from the past, Gun Media unveiled a bloody new trailer for Friday the 13th: The Game.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, we put Titanfall 2‘s Technical Test through its paces, and UK Correspondent Andrew Rainnie published a new Kickstart This! column focusing on Ruin of the Reckless.

We’re heading back to PAX West, but you can find even more news from the past seven days after the break. And Happy Labor Day everyone! (more…)

Weekly Warp-Up: Nintendo Was in the News A Lot This 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…

Have you seen the hamster run through Level 1-1 from Super Mario Bros.? If not, drop everything you’re doing and watch it right now. And after you’re done, dial up the video of Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe getting an Olympic-sized assist from Mario during the Closing Ceremony.

Nintendo stayed in the news a lot this week by releasing a series of mini-trailers for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Each clip is under a minute, but Link has been able to display his prowess with the Woodcutter’s Axe, a variety of magical Runes, a razor-sharp sword, and a bunch of arrows.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, we reviewed Keiji Inafune’s Mighty No. 9 and it got a “Mega Meh.”

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.
