Unravel, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, Firewatch, and a lot more added to PS Store


EA’s adorable Yarny will make his video game debut on the PlayStation Store this week with the PS4 release of Unravel. The puzzle platformer has captivated the gaming public since its unveiling during last year’s E3 Expo, and it’ll be interesting to see what the megapublisher does with a lower-key superstar like Yarny.

A number of other titles are also now available to download this week including Assassin’s Creed Chronicles: Russia, Ubisoft’s third (and final) side-scrolling spinoff in the Assassin’s Creed series; Firewatch, a first-person adventure about a fire lookout and the woman on the other end of his radio; and Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4, Bandai Namco’s newest game based on the popular anime.

Finally this week, a pair of re-releases will give gamers another shot at a game they may have missed before. Techland will relaunch Dying Light as Dying Light: The Following — Enhanced Edition, which includes the original game and every downloadable expansion released in the past year. Vertex Pop’s We Are Doomed will also get a re-release this week on the PS Vita after launching on the PS4 last year. And it’s Cross-Buy compatible, so if you bought the PS4 version last year, you can grab the portable version for free.

More information on all of these games (and a few other new releases) can be found after the break. And, as always, 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


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…)

Xbox Store Today: Castle Crashers Remastered, Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime, ClusterPuck 99, more


Prepare to dive deep into a trio of new side-scrollers in this week’s Xbox Games Store update. Though one of the games should be very familiar to Xbox 360 owners.

This week, Castle Crashers jumps to the Xbox One in an enhanced Remastered edition. The Behemoth’s widely acclaimed hack and slash now features “hi-res visuals like nothing you’ve ever seen before” running at 60 frames per second. A number of other tweaks have also been made to the game and a new minigame (“Back Off Barbarian”) has been added. But thankfully, the Remastered edition includes all the same co-op opportunities (for up to four players) and its even available for free (until September 20) to owners of the Xbox 360 edition.

Also available for the Xbox One this week is Lovers In A Dangerous Spacetime, a two-player “couch co-op action space shooter.” A single-player option is available, but developer Asteroid Base designed the game with co-op in mind, saying, “Only through teamwork can you triumph over the evil forces of Anti-Love, rescue kidnapped space-bunnies, and avoid a vacuumy demise.”

This week’s third side-scroller is Aritana and the Harpy’s Feather, a colorful puzzle platformer for the Xbox One based on “the switching of postures.” According to the developer, “You must choose between these postures to overcome obstacles and fight the Spirits of the Forest in a fast, intuitive, and fun gameplay.”

Finally this week, ClusterPuck 99 is a wild hockey-like game for the Xbox One designed for eight players. Developer PHL Collective says that its “intense local multiplayer” is “built for parties.”

More information on all of these games can be found after the break. (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 Prime 2013


This year’s PAX Prime was one of the best gaming experiences I’ve ever had. And even with four days, I still didn’t get a chance to play everything – or even see everything. Lines were long, crowds were huge, and once I got started in on a good game, I wanted to play it as much as I could. We were originally only going to award ten games, but by Monday, we couldn’t narrow it down, so we ended up adding in two more. Here is the PAXpocalypse List for PAX Prime 2013 – the twelve games we’d love to be stranded with if this little convention in Seattle was the end of the world. And they’re in alphabetical order… because that’s how it’s done when you can’t pick favorites. (more…)
