Weekly wrap-up: Sunday night edition

I know, I know. It took me a while to get the weekly wrap-up posted here on GameZone. But what could you expect? It was IndieCade 2012 weekend, and I love me some indie games, so I was pretty busy talking to some devs, buying cool merch, and beholding the very presence of people like Phil Fish and Anna Anthropy. In any case, here’s a Sunday night edition of the wrap-up recapping all of the latest content on GameZone. If you missed any reviews or previews, you’ll find them all here.

You know what you should do? Not watch Hotel Transylvania, that’s what. Save your cash or watch ParaNorman instead.

FIFA 13 review (Xbox 360, PS3)

It may not exactly offer anything revolutionary or remarkably fresh, but this soccer title delivers an outstanding formula that works impressively.

If you were a fan of this escapade starring the blue blur back when the game first launched, chances are this HD remake will bring back fond memories.

NiGHTS Into Dreams HD review (Xbox 360, PS3)

Featuring a ton of accessibility and some neat extras, this HD remake of a Saturn classic shines through and through.

FTL: Faster Than Light review (PC)

Addictive, engaging, and captivating — this game’s spirit proves that simplicity can often be infused into the utmost incredible of games.

Taken 2 review (Movies)
It may not be very smart – in fact, it’s quite stupid – but this follow-up to Taken can still provide plenty of enjoyment for the appropriate audience.

Frankenweenie review (Movies)

Tim Burton’s latest is hardly all that exciting, but it’s rife with enough of the filmmaker’s personality to make it worthwhile.
