The Games of April 2014


April is finally upon us, and with it, hopefully some better weather! But that doesn’t matter for the Warp Zoned crew – that is, unless we’re playing our handhelds outside. It’s also nearly time for PAX East, which has us pretty excited! Read on to find out what else we’re looking forward to now that Spring has sprung. (more…)

Warpback: What We Played in March 2014


We were busy little gamers in March here at Warp Zoned. We spent plenty of time in South Park, used lots of amazing new powers in InFamous: Second Son, got ready for our Titan in TitanFall, and even snuck around a bit in Thief. We also dipped into some of our favorite older games as well, keeping ourselves – and our thumbs – busy as always. Read on to see the complete list of everything we played this last month! (more…)

Kickstart This! The Guinness Aftermath Edition

While most of Ireland went about their business as usual on March 17th, many parts of the world decided to paint themselves green and drink several pints of the black stuff to commemorate the man who drove the snakes from the Emerald Isle. It doesn’t matter that these people are not really Irish, that St. Patrick probably didn’t drive out the snakes (as there were no snakes to begin with), or that the saint’s real colour is blue. The true meaning of St. Paddy’s Day is less about the man and his legend, and more about the celebration and enjoyment of life.

So, with our Guinness hangovers having well and truly dissipated for another year, let us turn our attentions to the viper pit that is Kickstarter, plucking some worthy cobras and prize-winning pythons from the wriggling mess. Hot on the heels of Goat Simulator‘s launch comes a campaign for Bear Simulator. Next is pixel exploration adventure Spirit, followed by 2D point-and-click game Dead Synchronicity. Things get very serious in 2D interactive novel The Seed, before we enter the fantasy realm of Chaos Reborn. Last, but not least, is the beautiful and ambitious turn-based RPG Earthlock: Festival of Magic.

Remember, a snake is for life, not just for St. Paddy’s Day. (more…)

10 Actresses We Think Could Play Elena Fisher in the Uncharted Movie


Recently, we looked at who could play Nathan Drake and his fatherly cohort in crime, Victor “Sully” Sullivan, in the upcoming film adaptation of Naughty Dog’s Uncharted franchise. However, their Indiana Jones-esque adventures would not be complete without American journalist Elena Fisher there to film their antics, get kidnapped, and break Nate’s heart. But which Hollywood darling could play the part and woo one of gaming’s most lovable rogues? We have picked ten actresses that we think best fits the part. (more…)

It Came From 200X! The InFamous Series


With the much-heralded arrival of InFamous: Second Son, we thought the franchise’s first two (and a half) entries deserved one more day in the spotlight. Sucker Punch Productions first introduced the world to Cole McGrath and the Ray Sphere in 2009. But how did the franchises’s beginnings prepare us for one of the most anticipated titles of the new console generation? (more…)

10 Actors We Think Could Play Victor “Sully” Sullivan in the Uncharted Movie


When production on the film adaptation of Uncharted first began to gain momentum under the direction of Seth Gordon, we listed our picks on which actors we thought could bring Nathan Drake to life. However, Nate would not be the man he is without adoptive father figure Victor “Sully” Sullivan by his side. Let’s take a look at ten actors who could slip into the role and don Sully’s thin, shermanic moustache. (more…)

A Playing Card With Fangs: How Puzzle Games Use Characters to Get in Our Heads


As video games begin to resemble film and television productions more and more with each passing generation, it’s interesting to observe that puzzle games remain a vibrant genre. Puzzle games burst onto the scene at the very beginning, back when gaming was nothing more than a handful of pixels projected onto an old television. While everyone in the “real world” was attempting to master a Rubik’s Cube in as few moves as possible, gamers were tackling the line destruction of Breakout and the line construction Tetris. However, without realizing it, the puzzle genre became just as story-driven as everything else the game industry produces today. (more…)
