Weekly Warp-Up: Bundle Up Edition

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…

Microsoft and Nintendo spent this week getting ready for the holiday season by announcing a ton of new system bundles. Microsoft revealed that the Walmart-exclusive version of the 2014 Holiday Bundle would include a blue Xbox 360 console (and copies of Call of Duty: Black Ops II and Call of Duty: Ghosts). But Nintendo went one further by announcing a trio of new 3DS XL bundles including designs based on the classic NES controller, Persona Q: Shadow of the Labyrinth, and Super Smash Bros. For 3DS.

Next up, Dan Hobbs has posted a review of Metro Redux for your reading pleasure.

Oh, and in other news, Microsoft may be buying Mojang (creators of Minecraft) and Apple announced the iPhone 6, iPhone 6 Plus, and the Apple Watch. Maybe I should have lead with those.

Weekly Warp-Up: It Is Your Destiny Edition

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…

Destiny will be available on store shelves in just two short days… are you ready? To help prepare, I suggest watching the pretty fun live-action trailer and reading about the rest of Warp Zoned’s week that was. For example, did you know that Andrew Rainnie turned his latest Kickstart This! column on its head by focusing on Indiegogo titles? Because he did. The entire Warp Zoned staff also got together to talk about What We Played In August 2014 and The Games of September 2014. And yes, Destiny definitely has a place in the latter.

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 2014 PAX Prime convention is in full swing, so if you’re in Seattle you’re probably reading this from the show floor. And here’s some of the things you could be seeing today and tomorrow:

Deep Silver has Escape Dead Island, Dead Island 2, and Metro Redux available to play on the show floor, as well as Volition’s Saints Row: Gat Out of Hell and Saints Row IV: Re-Elected, which were announced on Friday. Speaking of crazy shooters, Harmonix is showcasing A City Sleeps, their new music-based shooter. Sony has more than 30 PS4 and Vita games to play at their booth. And Telltale Games has given the public their first taste of Tales From the Borderlands. Finally, The Behemoth has unveiled Game 4, and yes, the spider woman-cupcake is present and accounted for.

In non-PAX news, we’ve posted a pair of reviews this week for your perusal, Scram Kitty and His Buddy On Rails and The Amazing Spider-Man 2. And Andrew Rainnie continues his look at the state of the Wii U by asking if it’s worth it Bringing Ubisoft’s U Back to the Wii U.

Weekly Warp-Up: PAX Prime 2014 Countdown

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 just a few days from the kickoff of PAX Prime 2014. The final big gaming convention of the Summer will be held from August 29 through September 1 in Seattle and it promises plenty of surprises and lots of great games to play. And if you’re heading to PAX Prime, be sure to hit up the Indie Megabooth installation and say hi to Warp Zoned’s Nicole Kline and Anthony Amato. They’ll be there to demo Resistor, their awesome card game (I’m probably biased).

Elsewhere on the show floor, you’ll be able to play games from Atari, Nintendo, Ubisoft, Square Enix, and The Behemoth’s Game 4.

What else happened this week besides PAX Prime preparation? Hit the jump to find out. (more…)

Weekly Warp-Up: Pre-Gamescom 2014 Edition

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…

Europe’s biggest gaming convention, Gamescom, begins next week and publishers the world over are preparing for the show. 2K Games confirmed that Evolve will be at the show… and then promptly delayed its release to February. Sony is teasing something that will probably end being the return of Until Dawn. BioWare released another one of their “You’ve Been Chosen” teasers. And Activision is bringing back the Sierra publishing label. Sure, why not?

But if you’d prefer to look back at one of 2013’s most interesting games, we’ve got a review of Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag for you as well.

Weekly Warp-Up: The Eye of the Storm 2014 Edition

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 know it’s been out for more than a month, but I was finally able to put pen to paper and pump out a Shovel Knight review that is befitting of this amazing game. Yacht Club Games had a Kickstarter success on their hands almost from the word “go” and they delivered in a way that not even the crustiest sea salt could have imagined.

If you’re looking for the next great Kickstarter success story, perhaps its in Andrew Rainnie’s latest edition of Kickstart This!

If you’d rather take a closer look at games that currently available (or soon will be), you’d do well to dive into Warp Zoned staff picks for What We Played in July 2014 and The Games of August 2014.

More news from the week that was (including a little Comic-Con spillover and a pre-Gamescom roundup) can be found after the break. (more…)

Weekly Warp-Up: It Came From Comic-Con 2014

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 time and game publishers took in the sights of San Diego and made a few big announcements this week including the news that Uncharted movie will open on June 10, 2016. That’s prime blockbuster territory and actually takes the place of The Amazing Spider-Man 3, which has been delayed until 2018. In other big Comic-Con news, the Firefly crew is getting back together to lend their voices to Firefly Online, which will be released next year. Shiny!

And looking back at a different convention, id Software gave fans their first look at Doom 4 during last weekend’s QuakeCon. After some careful consideration, I have decided that hiding this gameplay video from the public is a “Stroke of Genius.”

Finally this week, the Warp Zoned staff gathered around a microphone to debate Our Favorite Games From the PS3/Xbox 360/Wii Era on the latest episode of “Continue Countdown.” Did your favorite make the cut?
