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…)
Yesterday was Tuesday, and as always, Sony has posted this week’s update to the PlayStation Store for your shopping pleasure. Here’s what PS3 and Vita players can look forward to this week:
The Vita-exclusive Call of Duty: Black Ops Declassified leads this week’s new releases. Activision’s portable military shooter is joined by Colors!, a new painting app for your Vita.
There are two new additions to the PS3 side of things: Namco Bandai’s Tekken Tag Tournament 2 and an ala carte version of SingStar. Players who want to brush up on their karaoke skills can download the free SingStar client (which includes several demo songs) and then fill their hard drives with only the songs they want.
Finally, a pair of PSN titles round out this week’s batch of new releases. Wicked Monster Blast! HD is a shooting gallery for your PlayStation Move controller (though it also works with a DualShock 3) and Planets Under Attack is a strategy game that features intergalactic warfare. Take that, Call of Duty!
We are currently in the midst of a fighting game renaissance. From the arcade cabinets in the days of yore, to the couches of the 1990s, and finally to the heated tournaments today, the genre has evolved from a casual experience to an almost chess-like battle of the intellects. Dedicated fighters spend months perfecting their move sets and combos, and study their opponents’ battles to look for any hints of weaknesses. Tournaments such as EVO are held every year, where the best players take home thousands of dollars in cash and prizes. It’s become a full-blown extravaganza.
Learning a fighting game nowadays take time and persistence. Sure, you can button-mash and win a few fights here and there; but in order to be the best, you need to learn the intricacies. One must have a detailed knowledge of hit boxes, cancels, and the like in order to get the most out of your character. This is where Tekken Tag Tournament 2 excels: not just as a fighting game, but as a game worthy of your time and commitment. Because the first time you successfully pull off a combo into a bound into a tag assault into another combo, you’ll earn yourself a well-deserved feeling of satisfaction.
And that’s just a fraction of what this game offers. (more…)
A pair of fighting games lead this week’s new release slate. There’s EA’s NHL 13 (available for the PS3 and Xbox 360) and then there’s Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (also available for the PS3 and Xbox 360). See, it’s funny because there’s a lot of fighting in hockey and… eh, moving on…
Speaking of re-releases, Nintendo will make Kirby’s Dream Collection available on Sunday the 16th. And in honor of Finding Nemo‘s 3D re-release, Disney is bringing Finding Nemo: Escape to the Big Blue to the 3DS and DS. Seems appropriate.
If I knew more about the Tekken series, I could probably tell you who the silhouettes belonged to in the Tekken Tag Tournament 2 trailer that debuted during the Spike TV Video Game Awards. But I can’t. I’m sorry.
However, I can tell you that Namco Bandai plans to release Tekken Tag Tournament 2 in late 2012. That’s something I guess.
