Warp Zoned’s 2014 Golden Pixel Awards: Honoring Our Favorite Games

wzgoldenpixelawards-header

With the PS4 and Xbox One entering their first full year on store shelves, 2014 turned out to be a bit of a transition year. A lot of games were delayed into 2015 and a few others were delayed even further. With the other two consolemakers taking a step back in 2014, it was Nintendo’s time to shine and the wizards behind the Wii U responded with nearly a dozen major titles. But that doesn’t mean the PS4 and the Xbox One (or the PS3 and Xbox 360, for that matter) went hungry in 2014.

There were plenty of great games to go around last year and you can read all about them as we hand out our annual Golden Pixel Awards… (more…)

Your TitanFall is ready to be the best-selling game of March 2014

titanfall-header

TitanFall-mania has engulfed the NPD Group as the market research firm confirmed today that Respawn’s shooter is the best-selling game of March 2014.

March releases dominated the latest bestseller list as InFamous: Second Son (#2), South Park: The Stick of Truth (#3), Dark Souls II (#5), and Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster (#8) all cracked the top ten. The retail release of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition continues to hang on as it checks in at #10 once again. The console port of Mojang’s popular game will surely get a boost in May as Sony will make the disc-based version Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition available on store shelves. According to Joystiq, total hardware/software/accessory sales were up 3% over March 2013 with a 78% increase in console sales according for the majority of the sales bump.

The complete top ten for March 2014 can be found after the break. (more…)

InFamous: Second Son Review: New City, Same InFamous

infamoussecondson-header

The InFamous series, like many superhero simulations before it, is at its best when the player is made to feel like a 24-carat badass. InFamous: Second Son is possibly the epitome of this feeling. However, after experiencing that same feeling in the two (and a half) previous games in the series, alongside numerous other titles of their ilk, the effect is diminished. (more…)

MGS5: Ground Zeroes, Luftrausers, InFamous: Second Son, more added to PS Store

Your eyes do not deceive you, this is reality… Sony has updated their virtual storefront, the PlayStation Store, with a ton of new games.

Leading the way is Sony’s next major PS4 release, InFamous: Second Son. Second Son will spin off with a new main character (Delsin) and a new locale (Seattle) because Cole McGrath lost his life at the end of InFamous 2. In a break from tradition, you’ll have to wait until Friday (March 21) to continue your infamous ways.

Also available for the PS4 this week is Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes, Hideo Kojima’s prologue to the next Metal Gear game, and Stealth Inc.: Ultimate Edition, a next-gen upgrade to the popular puzzle platformer. Ground Zeroes is also available to download from the PS3 section of the store. Finally, the mining platformer SteamWorld Dig makes the next-generation leap in a special PS4/Vita Cross-Buy edition.

But don’t think the PS3 is being left out in this week’s PlayStation Store update. The Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster has finally been released (it’s available on the Vita too), along with Tecmo Koei’s insane zombie slasher, Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, and Vlambeer’s dogfighting sim, Luftrausers (which was released as a PS3/Vita Cross-Buy title).

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

newreleases031814

TitanFall made a huge splash last week, but a new set of publishers are ready to compete for your gaming dollar this week with a new set of games. Are you ready? Here we go…

Konami and Kojima Productions will release Metal Gear Solid V: Ground Zeroes for next-generation consoles (PS4 and Xbox One) and current-generation consoles (PS3 and Xbox 360) this week. The game will serve as a prologue to Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, which does not currently have a release date, and will serve as an introduction to the franchise’s brand new open world mechanics.

Also available this week is the next major PS4 exclsuive from Sony, InFamous: Second Son. With Second Son, the InFamous series gains a new protagonist and a new city to wreak havoc in. And speaking of havoc, Tecmo Koei will release Yaiba: Ninja Gaiden Z, a wild collaboration between Team Ninja, Spark Unlimited, and Keiji Inafune’s Comcept, for the PS3 and Xbox 360 this week.

Finally, Square Enix’s Final Fantasy X/X-2 HD Remaster will bring the beloved pair of games to the PS3 and Vita this week. It will be joined the week’s lone Wii U release, the kart racing game Hello Kitty Kruisers.

InFamous: Second Son will be available on March 21

InFamous: Second Son should be the first PS4 game from Sony released in 2014 (unless DriveClub beats it to stores). But now, thanks to last night’s PS4 launch event, we know exactly when we’ll get to play it: March 21.

Be sure to check out the new trailer above, which highlights Delsin’s “Smoke” and “Neon” powers. It also includes a pretty decent cover of Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box” because, without it, how else would we know the gmae takes place in Seattle?

PS4 Trailer: InFamous: Second Son

Cole MacGrath’s story ended with InFamous 2, but Sucker Punch isn’t finished with their superhuman world yet. Promising “a new character, new city, new powers, and all designed especially for the new PlayStation 4,” InFamous: Second Son is sure to electrify the newly announced PS4:

Surrounded by a society that fears them, superhumans are ruthlessly hunted down and caged by the Department of Unified Protection. When Delsin Rowe discovers his powers he’s forced to run, searching for other superhumans in order to save those he loves from the oppressive D.U.P. now hot on his tail. The choices he makes along the way change the future of everyone around him.
