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…)
There’s a lot to recommend in this week’s PlayStation Store update. The biggest new release is the downloadable version of Rockstar’s Max Payne 3, which can be purchased for a limited time for $44.99. It’s such a steal, Max Payne might arrest you… if he was still a cop…
Also available this week is the return of the Lee brothers in Double Dragon: Neon. The WayForward-developed beat ‘em up is a free download for PlayStation Plus subscribers (along with Scott Pilgrim vs. The World) and a demo is available for the rest of us that want to test the waters before dropping $9.99 on the game.
It may not be of interest to many, but this week’s PS2 Classic is La Pucelle: Tactics. Nippon Ichi’s prequel to the Disgaea series hooked me hard back in 2004. If you like Strategy RPGs, give it a shot.
Hit the jump for the complete list of this week’s new downloadable games (including FIFA Street, Anomaly: Warzone Earth, and Red Johnson’s Chronicles 2) and travel over to the PlayStation Blog for a complete rundown of this week’s new game add-ons. (more…)
I love games. Video games, board games, card games… it’s becoming kind of a problem, if you know what I’m saying. If I had more time to play them, it might be alleviated a bit. But I cram all my free time with them. Last night, it was Cards Against Humanity (with the new expansion!) and Super Dungeon Explore, with just a pinch of Ascension. Tonight? Dungeons and Dragons and Rainbow Moon, and maybe Chrono Trigger if I’m lucky. My heart is not complaining. My classwork and wallet are.
Anyway! A big thanks to Mike Ryan for his Bonus Scoop he wrote yesterday about Kid Icarus: Uprising. Way to keep a sharp eye out!
What have we got for you today? Well, Best Buy is having a buy two, get one free sale on 3DS games, including Mario Kart 7, Super Mario 3D Land, and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. I started buying some of them until I remembered I’m supposed to stop buying games for real, and then I had an argument with myself while holding my wallet and staring at the computer screen.
This is really what my life is like.
Amazon is still having their back to school sale, including Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for $39.99, the ultimate edition of Fallout: New Vegas for $29.99, and Max Payne 3 for $39.99. Scoop ‘em up, folks!
Just one cool t-shirt for you today… (more…)
Hi there! Did you miss me? I was on vacation for the last 10 days, and it was amazing. I’m sure that you were sad and missed me, but fear not! I have returned, to bring you the best deals and the cutest game-related t-shirts on the Internet.
It’s been a really busy week for me. I did a lot of homework, played a lot of video games, read some books, played some board games and Dungeons and Dragons, and, oh yeah: my friend launched the Kickstarter I’m involved in. He’s making a game and I’m writing the story. Get in on the magic!
First up: Toys R Us is having a sale on some new and new-ish games. The sale is two for $60, which is pretty darn good for some of these titles. Take a look:
- Prototype 2 for PS3 and Xbox 360 (retail is $49.99)
- Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 for PS3 and Xbox 360 (retail is still $59.99)
- Max Payne 3 for PS3 and Xbox 360 (retail is $59.99)
- Darksiders II for PS3 and Xbox 360 (retail is $59.99)
- Mass Effect 3 for PS3 and Xbox 360 (retail is $39.99)
- The Amazing Spider-Man for PS3 and Xbox 360 (retail is $59.99)
- NCAA Football 13 for PS3 and Xbox 360 (retail is $59.99)
- Sleeping Dogs for PS3 and Xbox 360 (retail is $59.99)
Those are some pretty amazing savings. I want Darksiders II and Max Payne 3, but I also want to catch up on my ludicrously huge backlog, so go figure.
Next up: today’s awesome t-shirts! (more…)
Another Tuesday, another board game night. Tonight we’re going to try out Blood Bowl Team Manager again, and possibly play some Bang. I also just got my copy of The Last Story, so we’ll see if that wins out over Sleeping Dogs. Oh, and Ryan Littlefield scored me an extra Gamecube controller, and my dear boyfriend Anthony has been talking a lot of trash about Mario Kart: Double Dash. Decisions, decisions…
Want some deals? Well, I’ve got one – Max Payne 3 is on sale for 46% off. I’m not going to tell you how much that costs. Get a calculator! No, it’s like, $30-something dollars. Or something.
Anyway, check out these awesome t-shirts and stuff! Yeah! Also… PORTAL UNDERWEAR. You heard me. (more…)
Today is my Friday! Woohoo! Take that, Thursday. And to top it off, I’ve actually got a pretty decent deal to share with you!
The weekly ad at GameStop has some deals, including a deal to get a free guide with select games. The games are Dark Souls, Max Payne 3, Ninja Gaiden 3, and Soul Calibur V. That’s a great selection of games with free guides, especially Dark Souls. If you’ve been waiting for the right time to have your spirit completely crushed, I would say this is as good a time as any.

With editions on seven different platforms, Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes rose to the top of The NPD Group’s monthly list of bestselling games. The remainder of the list was split between new releases, May holdovers, and Fall 2011 games that are still popular.
There were only a handful of new games available in June with Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Future Soldier (#2), Pokemon Conquest (#7), and The Amazing Spider-Man (#10) all earning spots in the top ten. Grasshopper’s Lollipop Chainsaw didn’t make the cut, continuing Suda 51′s lack of success at the register.
An astounding four games from Fall 2011 continue to sell strongly enough to make the top ten: NBA 2K12 (#5), Batman: Arkham City (#6, boosted by the newly released Game of the Year Edition), Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3 (#8), and Battlefield 3 (#9). I’m sure it helps that all were among the best-reviewed games of last year.
As a whole, game and hardware sales are down 29% from June 2011, according to Joystiq.
A complete list of last month’s best-selling games can be found after the break. (more…)
Here we are, yet another Monday. Do they ever stop coming? I would love to declare a ceasefire in my war against it, but it’s just so despicable most weeks. Can’t we ever just start the week on a Wednesday? It would be so much more pleasant!
Anyway, onto the deals! Amazon’s got a few up its sleeve today:
- Just Dance and Just Dance 2 for $13.99 on the Wii
- Final Fantasy XIII-2 for $19.99 on PlayStation 3 and $24.99 on Xbox 360
- HORI PlayStation 3 Final Fantasy XIII-2 Face Plate for $13.99
