Welcome to Warp Zoned’s second annual Golden Pixel Awards. It was definitely a good year for gaming. With the fight over Mass Effect 3‘s ending, the resurrection of Sleeping Dogs, and the launch of the Wii U, we were treated to 12 months of interesting stories.
So sit back and relax as we reward the best (and worst) games of 2012 with a series of accolades based on their rather unique accomplishments.
The Apocalypse List
The bombs have fallen, the economy has collapsed, food is scarce, the zombie hordes are scratching at your door, and you’ve boarded yourself up in a bunker that’ll stand for a hundred years. What better way to spend your time in “The Vault” than by playing Warp Zoned’s favorite games from 2012? It doesn’t matter if you call it a “Top Ten List” or “Our Favorites From 2012,” but these are the games we plan to keep playing even if there was no game industry to keep making games. (more…)
Nothing like having a full agenda and getting nothing done! I swear that’s been my life lately. Try to get one thing together and a million other things seem to fall in the way. Oh, and also, today is kind of a natural bummer of a day – it’s the day BioShock Infinite was supposed to come out. Boo!
Anyway, what’s going on for today? John Scalzo, our Editor-in-Chief, let me know that Gamefly is having a nice sale – it’s an under $15 sale on used games. You can get Mass Effect 3 or Syndicate for $9.99, or Binary Domain or Batman: Arkham City for $14.99. Or you could just spend your money on the Borderlands 2 DLC that came out today, or saving it up for the new Sleeping Dogs DLC that was just announced. Scoop those up, people! For sure.
Some great t-shirts are up for sale today! (more…)
April continues to lumber along with yet another small batch of new releases.
This week, Prototype 2 brings us back to Radical’s demented vision of open world games where a helicopter is something to be thrown and the best way to take out an enemy is by eating them! Yummy! Prototype 2 will be available for the PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
With Sony’s Vita launch behind us, the rest of the video game world closes out February with a few big releases:
- EA’s SSX returns on the PS3 and Xbox 360.
- Sega’s Yakuza Studio tries their hand at tech noir with Binary Domain (PS3, Xbox 360)
- Atlus releases another hardcore Japanese RPG. This time it’s Shin Megami Tensei: Devil Survivor 2 for the DS.
- Speaking of hardcore Japanese RPGs, NIS America plans to release Hyperdimension Neptunia MK-2 for the PS3.
- But on the lighter side of things, there’s PokePark 2: Wonders Beyond for the Wii.
- And on the even lighter side of things, NetherRealm has compiled the Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
OK, that last one was a joke. You can check out the full list of the rest of this week’s new releases after the break. (more…)
Even though game developers have tried dozens of times, there’s never really been a great video game adaptation of the Terminator franchise. While Sega’s Binary Domain isn’t an official tie-in of the James Cameron-directed movies, it may as well be. Producer Toshihiro Nagoshi and the rest of his Yakuza Studio have plucked plotpoints and design cues from The Terminator as well as Will Smith’s I, Robot and The Matrix. After mixing it all together, they’ve created something that doesn’t feel very original, but does feel like the Terminator game the world has always wanted. (more…)
Mixing imagery and plot points from I, Robot, Blade Runner, and The Terminator, Binary Domain looks like it’ll tread some familiar territory when its released for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
But the game also looks ridiculously cool… and why shouldn’t it? The game was created by the same mind who made the Yakuza series into a worldwide sensation after all.
Definitely be sure to check out the trailer above and shed a single tear (to prove you’re not a robot) over the game’s slight delay to February 28 (it was originally scheduled for release on the 14th).
The Mayans and film director Roland Emmerich would have us believe that the end of the world is nigh. Really nigh. Knee nigh almost. But despite the warnings, it seems most game designers shirked off the warning that was Emmerich’s masterpiece 2012 and decided to roll out the same old stuff. We have Final Fantasy XIII-2, Guild Wars 2, Borderlands 2, Darksiders II, The Darkness II, Mass Effect 3, Max Payne 3, Soul Calibur V, and Street Fighter X Tekken (I know the X doesn’t equal 10, but it might at well). I am sure some of these games will be amazing (and I have my £40 saved for Borderlands 2 already), but if it really, truly is the end of life, the universe and my games consoles, then is it too much to ask to play something new before we’re all burned, drowned, stabbed or frozen to death (depending on which mood Emmerich is in) instead of say, another instalment of Call of Duty or, hypothetically, taking an isometric political espionage strategy game from 1993 and turning it into yet another First Person Shooter?
Thankfully no. (more…)
