Continue Countdown #2 – The Evil Within, Borderlands: Pre-Sequel, Super Mario 20, More

The second episode of Warp Zoned’s “Continue Countdown” is now available to watch through our YouTube channel. It’s a PAX East kind of show as Editor-In-Chief John Scalzo, Staff Writer Mike Ryan, and special guest Adam Woolcott discuss the blandness of The Evil Within, the bizarreness of The Behemoth’s Game 4, and the baffling choice to put Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

The trio also delves into the Console War Between the PS4 and Xbox One, next-gen remakes like The Last of Us Remastered, and whether the inclusion of Marvel characters will affect our decision to purchase Disney Infinity 2.0. Finally, they looked at yet another piece of Beyond Good & Evil 2 concept art, the release date gap between the 3DS and Wii U versions of Super Smash Bros. 4, and the quasi-announcement of Super Mario Bros. 20.

Warp Zoned Podcast: Episode 18

Welcome to Episode 18 of the Warp Zoned podcast! In this exciting episode, Nicole Kline, Ryan Littlefield, and John Scalzo discuss what they’re playing, as well as what they’re reading (and no, Ryan hasn’t gotten any further in A Game of Thrones).

After that, they talked about how only 10% of games get finished these days, and then discussed their favorite Gamescom reveals, which descends into a discussion of Zelda. They wrap it up with a discussion about Diablo III coming to consoles, which has Nicole threatening Ryan through the Internet as he badmouths Diablo II. Somewhere in there, they even talk about Operation Rainfall, and how Ryan has too much time on his hands.

Warp Zoned Podcast: Episode 17

This week on the Warp Zoned Podcast, Nicole Kline, Ryan Littlefield, John Scalzo, and special guest Anthony Schneegas discuss a very important topic: Borderlands! What they love, what they hate, and most importantly, how to catch a riiiiiiiiiiiiiiide. Oh, and they also talked a bit about the new 3DS Ambassador program Nintendo unveiled, which has Ryan and Nicole pretty darn excited. They round it out with whether or not games are too expensive, what’s too much to pay for a game, and why some developers can be real hypocrites about it. If you’re playing Borderlands right now and want some company, feel free to add Nicole and Ryan on the PSN – her name is toitle and his is rightontargt4. And remember, we want your questions!
