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…)

NetherRealm conjures up the first trailer for The Enchantress in Injustice 2

NetherRealm Studios is ready to unveil The Enchantress… the next character coming to Injustice 2. The Enchantress made her big screen debut in 2016 as part of David Ayers’s Suicide Squad, and the supervillain’s demonic essence is front and center in the new trailer embedded above:

The all-too ordinary life of June Moone ended the day she was possessed by the Enchantress, a demonic sorceress with aspirations of world domination. Today, she fights for her very soul, struggling to harness the Enchantress’ magic for good. If she fails, the Enchantress will consume her – and our world won’t be far behind.

Injustice 2 players who own the Ultimate Edition or Fighter Pack #3 will be able to download The Enchantress on January 9. She’ll be available as a standalone download through the PlayStation Store, Steam, and the Xbox Games Store on January 16.

In the meantime, Injustice 2 fans can head over to NetherRealm’s Twitch channel to view a lengthy (and Enchantress-centric) new Watchtower stream.

Fighter Pack 3 will add The Atom, Enchantress, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to Injustice 2

Last month, we got a sneak peek at The Atom, the first character from Fighter Pack 3, NetherRealm’s next expansion for Injustice 2. Today, the developer revealed the flippin’ awesome fivesome that make up the rest of the expansion.

Enchantress, who was portrayed by Cara Delevingne in last year’s Suicide Squad film, will join The Atom as part of the DC Comics contingent in Fighter Pack 3. The remaining four characters will actually be available as a radical group… the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It’s unknown how players will access Donatello, Leonardo, Raphael, and Michelangelo from a single character slot, but hopefully it’ll work similar to Tri-Borg‘s variations in Mortal Kombat X.

A new trailer featuring the characters from Fighter Pack 3 has been embedded above, and Injustice 2 players who have purchased the Ultimate Edition or Fighter Pack 3 will be able to download The Atom on December 12.
