Golden Pixel Awards 2013: What We Loved, What We Hated, and What We’ll Never Forget

wzgoldenpixelawards-header

2013 was an amazing year in gaming. While we got loads of sequels, we also got some beautiful new IPs, and plenty of new hardware to enjoy it all.

Naughty Dog took a break from Uncharted and gave us The Last of Us, BattleBlock Theater reminded us why we love The Behemoth, and Ken Levine and his crew unleashed BioShock: Infinite on the gaming world. And let’s not forget all the amazing ports, including Diablo III (on consoles), Fez (on the PC), and Hotline Miami (on the PS3 and Vita). Yes, this year took our breath away, and cramped our thumbs like the good old days of the NES. We here at Warp Zoned have been gaming our little fingers off the last 12 months, and we’ve been even harder at work the last few weeks trying to decide what we loved and hated about gaming in 2013. After several days of deliberation, here’s what we came up with. And now it’s time for us to get back to gaming… 2014 is ready for us. (more…)

A-W-E-S-O-M-E! Typing of the Dead series returns with Typing of the Dead: Overkill

typingofthedeadoverkill-logoTyping of the Dead was a fantastic little oddity for the Dreamcast that has earned quite the cult following over the years. Sega went back to the zombified typing tutor in 2008 with Typing of the Dead 2, but it never clawed its way out Japan. But it’s time to type H-A-P-P-Y-T-I-M-E as Sega announced that Typing of the Dead: Overkill, which is based on House of the Dead: Overkill, is now available through Steam.

The good news was delivered by way of the Sega Blog:

Not familiar with Typing of the dead? The game originally launched in the Japanese arcades and quickly made it’s way to a home console release on the Dreamcast. For those that picked up a keyboard for the Dreamcast, they were in for a treat – the entire game was completely reworked to play entirely through the keyboard. It’s actually a wonderfully simple yet totally satisfying experience – the same frantic light gun experience is very similar to desperately typing phrases to push back the mutant threat. What really made the game shine was the crazy phrases and words it threw at you, which got increasingly crazier as the game went on.

And if you missed out on House of the Dead: Overkill for the Wii or the PS3, Typing of the Dead: Overkill includes that game as well. The Steam version of Typing of the Dead: Overkill is priced at $19.99, but it’s only $9.99 if you buy it before November 1.
