Weekly Warp-Up: It’s Still Black Friday Somewhere…

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…

There were some pretty great Black Friday deals this year, and many retailers have chosen to offer the same discounts all weekend long, so now’s your chance to get a big batch of good games for cheap.

Also this week, developers from Capcom revealed that the publisher has updates for Street Fighter V “planned out as far as 2020.” And speaking of the fighting game, we also took A Look Back at Street Fighter V’s Season Pass.

Weekly Warp-Up: This Is the End for the Wii U…

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…

My friends, this is the end. Nintendo announced that they’re officially ending production of the Wii U in the very near future. Was Nintendo’s strange tablet controller a slow-burning secret success or a disaster from the very start? That question will probably be argued over and pondered until the real end of time, but for know, I think we can all agree that the Wii U was an extremely interesting experiment and it hosted some incredible games.

We’re also nearing the end of the year, and that means a few annual traditions are circling back around:

  • Black Friday is less than a week away and here’s a look at the game deals you’ll find at Toys R Us.
  • The 2016 Game Awards will be handed out in early December, and Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End leads the way with eight nominations.
  • Sony PlayStation Experience event will also be held in early December and they’ve announced which publishers and developers will be attending this year.

Weekly Warp-Up: Let’s Speculate About the Nintendo Switch…

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…

While lots of great games have worked their way into stores over the last few weeks, there’s been a distinct lack of game news to keep us occupied. Because of that, our thoughts turned to the future and the Warp Zoned staff decided… Let’s Speculate About the Nintendo Switch. Nintendo’s next console is still a complete mystery, but we’ve got a few ideas about how it could change the way people think about console gaming.

Of course, there was plenty of real talk about the Switch this week as developers and publishers can’t seem to stop themselves from saying good things about the platform. Cypronia announced that Cube Life: Island Survival HD is in development for Nintendo’s console (and the PS4). Ubisoft‘s CEO promised to deliver “at least one game [for the Switch] that will definitely surprise you.”

And Tantalus, the developer of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess HD, announced they’re working on a game for the Switch too. Is it another remaster of a major Nintendo-published title? We don’t know, but we can speculate.

Weekly Warp-Up: Let’s Switch Things Up… and Keep Talking About the Nintendo Switch

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 officially unveiled their Switch console last week, but kept talking about it this week, confirming the Switch won’t offer a “second screen” option like the Wii U, but that it will support Amiibo figures. After that, Nintendo went silent, eventually saying they would unveil the launch date, games lineup, and price for the Switch on January 12.

So in the meantime, it’s back to the rumor mill for us, including a report stating the Switch will feature a multi-touch touchscreen. Also, a pair of indie adventures, Monster Boy and Oceanhorn: Monster of Uncharted Seas, were announced for the Switch.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, we got ready for Halloween by looking back at one of the most important horror games from the late 90s. Prepare yourself, because… It Came From 19XX: Silent Hill.

Weekly Warp-Up: Nintendo Switch, Red Dead Redemption 2, The Last Guardian… It Begins…

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 Chicago Cub and Cleveland Indians will be squaring off in the World Series next week, but the video game industry might have topped that unlikely matchup with a series of blockbuster announcements this week.

First, Nintendo unveiled their NX console! Officially known as the Switch, the rumors of a console/handheld hybrid with detachable controllers proved to be right on the money. Later that same day, Rockstar unveiled the first trailer for Red Dead Redemption 2, which will be released for the PS4 and Xbox One in Fall 2017.

Not to be outdone, Sony revealed that development on The Last Guardian is complete, confirming that it will indeed launch on December 6 as planned.

Elsewhere on Warp Zoned this week, we visited the Resident Evil 20th Anniversary Tour and tried out Resident Evil 7: Biohazard with PlayStation VR. We also sat down to review the excellent Pac-Man Championship Edition 2. And we updated our Big List of Nintendo Switch Games after Nintendo’s revealing trailer.

Weekly Warp-Up: Final Fantasy XV on 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…

Sony launched their PlayStation VR headset earlier this week, but the hottest new tech in gaming might have already been overshadowed by a new selection of Nintendo NX rumors.

According to insider information from multiple sources, Nintendo has remasters of The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword, Mario Kart 8, Super Smash Bros. For Wii U, and Splatoon in the works for the NX. We’ve heard this story before, but the tipsters also heard that a number Nintendo 64 and Wii remasters are in development as well.

Nintendo isn’t the only publisher working hard on NX games. According to the latest rumors, Final Fantasy XV and Final Fantasy VII Remake are in development at Square Enix, as is a new Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell game and a Yoshi/Rabbids Crossover at Ubisoft, along with untitled new games from Platinum Games and Capcom.

In an announcement that’s been in the works for more than eight years, Ubisoft has confirmed that pre-production on Beyond Good & Evil 2 has officially begun. No one knows when we’ll hear more about it, but some people are speculating that it could be in development for Ninetndo’s NX console, which we consider in the “October 2016 Update” to our Big List of Nintendo NX Games.

But in the more immediate future, the Warp Zoned staff filed hands-on previews for Dragon Quest Builders, which will be available next week, and Outlast II, which will be available in Early 2017.

And in the even more immediate future (and the recent past), the Warp Zoned staff got together to discuss What We Played in September and The Games of October.

Finally this week, Andrew Rainnie filed entry Kickstart This! column, focusing on Sulphur Nimbus: Hel’s Elixir.
