The Games of December 2014


The year rolls to a close this month with a handful of new games and the promise of an absolutely massive 2015. December’s release calendar may not typically be packed with the kinds of games that get gamers chattering, but there a few standouts will be available on store shelves (and digital store shelves) over the next 31 days. Games like Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker, which more than a few members of the Warp Zoned staff have their eyes on. What else are we looking forward to?

Warpback: What We Played in November 2014


November is always a big month for new game releases and the Warp Zoned staff dove in face first, trying our hands at games such as Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, Pokemon Alpha Sapphire, LittleBigPlanet 3, Geometry Wars 3: Dimensions, and the Evolve “Big Alpha.” And, of course, there’s the October spillover and our gigantic backlogs to consider. Want to join our conversation? Then I suggest you take a gander at everything we played after the break. (more…)

Between Alien: Isolation, The Evil Within, and Costume Quests 2, your All Hallows Eve can be a scary good time. What else is the Warp Zoned staff interested in during 2014’s tenth month?

Warpback: What We Played in September 2014


Believe it or not, but Destiny didn’t dominate the gaming time of the Warp Zoned staff last month. Instead, there was much backlog playing along with preparation for some of October’s big new releases. Are we out of touch? Nah, most people would say that we play by our own rules… (more…)

Warp Zoned’s Fall 2014 Preview Presents the Video Game Fantasy League


Click Here to Jump Down to the Standings

With its spreadsheets, massive drafting guides, and heavy emphasis on statistics, your average Fantasy Football league is run more like a role-playing game than a sports contest. So as we were putting together our Fall gaming preview, we thought, why not combine the two? And thus was born… the Video Game Fantasy League.

Warp Zoned’s staff got together and “drafted” eight games from this Fall’s release schedule in hopes of creating the best-reviewed team of games. The rules are simple. Each staff member was required to draft a PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Wii U game. The final two positions were reserved for a handheld game (3DS or Vita) and a Wild Card slot that could be filled with a game from any platform. Points are scored based on how well-reviewed each game is and points are locked in based on a game’s Metacritic average a month after a game has been released. Any game delayed into 2015 will receive a big fat zero.

Our draft, and the games we’re most looking forward to this Fall, looks a little something like this… (more…)
