Broforce Review: A Geri-Action-Packed Shooter

broforce-header

At first glance, Broforce seems to be an incredibly simple game. In each level, you run from left to right until you reach the end, killing any enemies who get in your way, with the occasional necessary exception of killing a boss before you can leave the level. While this might sound like a rather stagnant formula, Broforce, with its large roster of characters, emergent chaos, and four-player co-op, is designed to constantly descend into the kind of explosive mayhem that was so much fun in the action movies that the game borrows so liberally from.

Broforce, Mortal Kombat XL, Heavy Rain on PS4, more added to PlayStation Store

It’s time to bro wild with this week’s PlayStation Store update as the uber-American side-scrolling shooter Broforce is now available to download for the PS4. Developed by Free Lives, a South African-based team, Broforce is also available this month as a free download for PlayStation Plus subscribers. That’s a good deal, bro!

Also new to the PlayStation Store this week, and just as violent as Broforce, is NetherRealm’s Mortal Kombat XL. A super-sized re-release of a fighting game that everyone loved on the PS4 last year, the XL version adds nine new characters, a ton of costume changes, and the return of “The Pit.”

Finally, Quantic Dream’s interlocking serial killer story, Heavy Rain, will make the jump from the PS3 to the PS4 this week. The remake will include improved visuals and more realistic lighting. And NIS America will put out their own upgraded re-release with The Witch and the Hundred Knight: Revival Edition, a PS4 remake of an action RPG originally released for the PS3.

More information on all of these games can be found after the break. And a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons and discounts can be found at the PlayStation Blog. (more…)

Warp Zoned’s 2015 Golden Pixel Awards: Honoring Our Favorite Games From Last Year

wzgoldenpixelawards-header

The conventional wisdom will tell you that 2015 was a down year for games and that all the good stuff got pushed back to 2016. But how can you trust the conventional wisdom when last year featured a ridiculously entertaining string of good games starring kid squids, gothic hunters, glitchy sci-fi heroes, and the lone survivor of a nuclear war. And all that’s before you dip into the millions of user-created levels from Super Mario Maker.

Yup, we think 2015 was a pretty great year for games, especially the ones that took home some hardware during our annual Golden Pixel Awards… (more…)

PAX East 2015 Indie Megabooth lineup has been announced

The people behind the Indie Megabooth have announced this year’s PAX East 2015 lineup, which includes 79 games from 76 developers. The mazelike network of booths and carpet will feature a variety of eclectic games including previous PAXpocalypse selections such as Broforce (East 2014), Catlateral Damage (East 2014), Lovers in a Dangerous Spacetime (Prime 2013), Tumblestone (East 2014), and We Are Doomed (Prime 2013).

Trailers for every game are viewable at the Indie Megabooth official site and after taking in the short teasers, I’m sure a few other games will catch your fancy. I know I’m already planning to line up for Black Ice, a neon-coated beat ’em up/first person shooter; One More Line, a mobile game that feels like a Spider-Man simulator; and Titan Souls, a “Zeldalike” from Acidnerve.

In the interests of journalistic integrity, I’d also like to mention that Warp Zoned’s own Nicole Kline and Anthony Amato have earned a spot in this year’s Indie Megabooth Tabletop Area with their game, Resistor. I know I’m biased, but you should check it out.

You should also check out the complete list of games you’ll find within the Indie Megabooth at PAX East 2015, which is available after the break. (more…)

The PAXpocalypse List: The Best of PAX East 2014

paxeast2014-bestof-header

PAX East 2014 was a different type of show than in years past. Some big publishers, such as Nintendo, skipped the show completely, while others, like Microsoft, only brought a handful of unreleased games. This shift in the show floor allowed the indies to take center stage, and the majority of our PAX East 2014 PAXpocalypse List reflects this year’s status quo. But that’s not to say the big publishers skipped PAX East 2014 altogether. Towering displays from 2K, Bethesda, and Ubisoft dominated the exhibition hall map, and we definitely had some fun with a few games that will demand your time during this Summer and Fall.

So if we were cut off from the outside and trapped within the walls of PAX East 2014, which games would we return to over and over again? Well… (more…)
