Telltale’s Walking Dead games can be tough to review. The series is so heavily focused on story that it becomes increasingly difficult to write a review without giving away some of the finer plot details. In the Walking Dead universe, characters you’ve grown attached to are taken away in the blink of an eye, and if you know what will happen beforehand, the emotional impact is greatly lessened. In that regard, I’ve opted to provide a separate, spoiler-free review of The Walking Dead Season 2: A House Divided. That way, those of you who haven’t played the game can read on, knowing that nothing will be ruined. I promise to avoid any specific information or plot points throughout the rest of the review, so you can still feel confident in reading the entire review without learning too much.
Spoiler-Free Review: The game is amazing – go buy it right now!
OK, now that we have that out of the way, on with the review. (more…)
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…)
I’ve been a fan of the stealth genre since 1998, when I first played the greatest game ever: Metal Gear Solid. No hyperbole, of course. That’s not to say I don’t like other games in the genre, too: the entire Splinter Cell series is excellent and, more recently, Dishonored was hugely impressive. However, Thief was one I just never played. The loot-em-up is apparently the genesis of some stealth mechanics, such as light meters and sound cues, which were revolutionary achievements in the first person point of view. So, it should have been no surprise that I was incredibly intrigued by this new reimagining of Thief.
Sadly, if opportunity makes a thief, this reboot offers them up sparingly. (more…)

We were all over the place in February here at Warp Zoned! We played everything from the very old to the very new, and we had a blast doing it. There was a little overlap, but not much – we were either working our way through a backlog or celebrating video games that have been lauded. Read on to see all of the amazing games the Warp Zoned staff played in February! (more…)
With the January blues firmly behind us, and the world beginning to thaw (especially in England, where flooding has put a dampener on everything), many of you may be realizing that those Dryathalon challenges have left you with some serious Bitcoin. Wallets and purses worldwide are slowly being opened after the cataclysm of Christmas, and money is pouring out. But what to invest it in? Instead of, say, a gallon of maple syrup, or an ill-advised betting spree on this year’s World Cup, why not put your money into something you can nurture, grow, and play? We’ve scoured the crowdfunding coal mines of Kickstarter to highlight five extraordinary projects worthy of praise and attention.
And money. Don’t forget money.
To begin, we have the heart-warming 2D RPG adventure Super Chibi Knight, followed by bizarre meat-infused retro experiment Hot Dog Heartache. After that, we explore the streets filled with incandescent rage in side-scrolling brawler Treachery in Beatdown City, as well as the Metroid-Contra morphgasm that is Hive Jump. Finally, to finish us off, we visit the 3D horror-exploration genre with ReLive.
Let’s put your money where your mouse is. (more…)
John Shirley is at it again with his third book in the Borderlands series. Borderlands: Gunsight has Brick on the cover, but don’t let that fool you: Brick isn’t more than a periphery character in this book. No, this book continues where Borderlands: Unconquered left off – with Mordecai shacked up with Daphne Kuller, AKA Kuller the Killer. And that’s not all it has in common with the second book – it’s just as terribly written as that one, and just as boring. And oh yeah – Shirley still has not learned how to use semicolons. Can someone please take away that guy’s computer already? (more…)
