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.

More news from the week that was can be found after the break. (more…)

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?

Weekly Warp-Up: Mid-July 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…

Are you following along with this weekend’s Evo tournament. The premier fighting game tournament in the world is in full swing and it gave us our first look at the Thunder God Raiden in Mortal Kombat X.

If fighting games aren’t really your thing, then check out this review of Anomaly Defenders from Troy Matsumiya and an editorial from Dan Hobbs, Ignorance Is Strength: Gaming’s Permanent War With Nazis, Terrorists, and PMCs, that examines the familiar faces that populate our favorite first person shooters.

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.

You can find more news from the past seven days after the break. (more…)
