Weekly Warp-Up: The 2014 “Yup, It’s July” 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…

It’s that time again. The calendar has flipped over to a new month and the Warp Zoned staff got together to discuss The Games of July 2014. And before that, we revealed What We Played in June 2014. There are some good games in both lists, specifically The Walking Dead Season 2: In Harm’s Way, which Warp Zoned’s Mike Ryan recently reviewed. And speaking of important things that happened in June, the Game Critics Awards have showered Evolve and No Man’s Sky with multiple “Best of E3 2014″ awards.

If you’re looking for something a little more “out there,” might I suggest the latest edition of our Kickstart This! column. There are cats and side-scrolling… but not side-scrolling cats.

Weekly Warp-Up: World Record Run 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…

Ladies and gentlemen, true competitors make the world a more interesting place. And this week saw one of the greatest performances that I have ever witnessed. The World Cup is fun and all (USA! USA! USA!), but someone set an absolutely astonishing new world record for Super Mario Bros. this week. Someone known only as “Blubbler” managed to beat the game in 4 minutes and 57 seconds. Watch the video and be amazed. And if you catch yourself thinking, “I could do that,” stop yourself. Because no, no you can’t.

Also this week, the Warp Zoned staff published new reviews of two of this Spring’s most interesting games. Dan Hobbs weighs in on Watch Dogs while Mike Ryan goes bang, zoom, straight to the Moon Chronicles Episode 1: One Small Step.

Weekly Warp-Up: 2014 Post-E3 Blues 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…

During the E3 Expo, publishers showcase their upcoming wares and get gamers the world over excited for titles that might be more than a year away. And as with any major news dump like that, the week after is bound to be a little bare when it comes to exciting announcements.

But your ever present Warp Zoned writers are here to help. On Monday, Editor-In-Chief John Scalzo weighed in on Mario Kart 8 with a full review. On Wednesday, the staff compiled a list of as many upcoming games as we could think of. The result was a 2014/2015 (and Beyond) Release Calendar With 400 Video Games. The staff got together again the next day to post our “Continue Countdown E3 2014 Super Show.” And finally, Dan Hobbs pored over his E3 notes and came up with 7 Games You Missed At E3 2014.

What else happened this week? Not much, but you can find it all after the break. (more…)

Weekly Warp-Up: The A-Z of E3 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 looks like another E3 Expo has come to an end. We’ll all get together again next year in Los Angeles (June 16-18, to be exact) for another round of gabbing about gaming’s future. But for now, it’s time to talk about all the huge games that were on display at the 2014 E3 Expo. Though, to be fair, a lot of the games presented this year may show up at next year’s show too as a lot of this year’s biggest announcements have 2015 release dates.

Anyway, here it is, our annual list of everything E3. A link to every article for every game we covered is available after the break. (more…)

Weekly Warp-Up: E3 2014 Countdown 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…

It has begun! Appropriating one movie quote, I’m able to express my excitement over the fact that NetherRealm Studios has announced Mortal Kombat X and that the 2014 E3 Expo begins in less than 24 hours. All together now… Flawless Victory!

NetherRealm wasn’t the only developer to announce their next big game ahead of the E3 Expo. Just on Monday, Microsoft revealed Forza Horizon 2 and Crytek re-announced Homefront: The Revolution. But the good is often followed by the bad, as WB Games also used this pre-E3 period to confirm that the release of Batman: Arkham Knight has been pushed back to 2015. I hope a some publishers saved at least a few reveals for the Expo itself.

The Warp Zoned staff discussed all of these pre-E3 announcements, and plenty more, in the latest episode of “Continue Countdown.” we also all got together to examine The Games of June 2014 and recount What We Played in May 2014. Finally, Dan Hobbs turned in a review of Killzone: Shadow Fall.

Weekly Warp-Up: T-Minus One Week to E3 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…

Do you hear that crackle and excitement in the air? It’s the coming of the 2014 E3 Expo and the rush of the new game announcements that will accompany it. Announcements that are happening this week because publishers are an impatient lot. Even developers like NetherRealm’s Ed Boon are getting in on the early announcements. After a leaked poster seemingly confirmed the existence of Mortal Kombat 10, Boon went ahead and admitted as much to the world by revamping the Mortal Kombat website and posting about it on Twitter. Two other high-profile pre-E3 announcements from this past week included EA’s game of cops-and-robbers, Battlefield Hardline, and Bethesda’s game of team-based meleeing, BattleCry.

Of course, if you’d rather hide from the upcoming onslaught of AAA games, we’ve published a new edition of Kickstart This! for your perusal.

What else happened this week? You should read the rest of the Weekly Warp-Up after the break. (more…)
