The Games of February 2018

The remakes are coming! The remakes are coming! There aren’t many original games making their way to store shelves in February, but if you’re interested in exploring some of gaming’s greatest hits thanks to some new remakes and remasters, then you’ll definitely want to pay attention to this month’s upcoming releases.

Sony is rebuilding Shadow of the Colossus “from the ground up” on the PS4, and Square Enix is giving a similar full makeover to Secret of Mana. Atlus is stuffing a wide variety of new content into Radiant Historia to create Radiant Historia: Perfect Chronology for the 3DS. And Nintendo and Sega are bringing Bayonetta back for another fight against the heavenly horde in both Bayonetta and Bayonetta 2.

You can find what we’re looking forward to after the break, along with a complete release schedule for all of this month’s new releases. (more…)

Warp Zoned’s 2017 Golden Pixel Awards: A New Beginning for Video Games

wzgoldenpixelawards-header

When we looked over the gaming landscape at the beginning of 2017, we opined that game publishers had done their best to wipe the slate clean throughout all of 2016. Many of gaming’s most mysterious projects were finally released, Nintendo closed the door on the Wii U, the VR revolution was in full swing, and upgraded versions of the PS4 and Xbox One were on the horizon.

In these first few days of 2018, I think it’s safe to say the last 12 months definitely fulfilled that promise. Nintendo’s Switch roared out of the gate in March and the consolemaker filled the calendar with big titles on “Day One” and throughout the rest of the year. Night in the Woods, Persona 5, and Golf Story told new kinds of stories that gamers had never seen before. Cuphead delivered a decidedly retro side-scroller packaged within a unique visual playground packaged. And someone even managed to create a fun Friday the 13th game.

It was quite a year, and you can find more of our favorites from 2017 after the break. (more…)

Kickstart This! The French Are Coming!

A little while ago in a string of Kickstart This! posts, I teased that I would cover a French game in the future. That future is now. There are not one but two two brilliant games currently seeking donations on Kickstarter from the country that gave us cafetiere coffee and the Etch A Sketch. So let’s give these hard-working developers the kindness and support that this holiday season is meant to be about.

What have you got, France? (more…)
