Bundle bump: Knack was the best selling Japanese PS4 game

So, one of the reasons for the delayed PS4 launch in Japan was the games lineup, right? They had to get more games for that audience? I'm not sure how good of a job they did if Battlefield 4 and Killzone Shadow Fall still cra...

Killzone: Shadow Fall has sold over 2.1M copies

Killzone: Shadow Fall was the one big old "next gen" carnival Sony had to stick to its PlayStation 4 and it seems that time in the uncontested limelight proved positive for the underdog series. The PlayStation 4 sold 4.2 mill...

Killzone: Shadow Fall clan support incoming

It strikes me as unusual that Killzone: Shadow Fall wouldn't include a clan system out of the gate when that functionality has become so common among not only first-person shooters, but competitive multiplayer games more gene...

Here are two of Killzone: Shadow Fall's free maps photo
Here are two of Killzone: Shadow Fall's free maps
by Jordan Devore

Guerrilla Games has given a first look at two upcoming multiplayer maps in Killzone: Shadow Fall. The pair of maps, The Cruiser and The Hangar, are based on environments from the game's single-player campaign -- that often seems to be the case, doesn't it? One is all about close-quarters combat, the other, not so much. You can guess which is which.

These maps are going to be free once finished, with or without a Season Pass. Guerrilla also says it's working on the first DLC expansion for Shadow Fall, among other things. I haven't been playing the game, but I'll go out on a limb and say that players are going to appreciate getting these new maps before too long. It's nice to have a little variety.

The best and worst games of the week photo
The best and worst games of the week
by Wesley Ruscher

The Playstation 4 dominated this weeks review schedule and rightfully so. Killzone: Shadow Fall, Knack, Resogun, and Contrast dominated our postings -- and as of last night my Facebook wall (please turn off your notifications friends) -- but they were not the only games worth talking about this week. 

Perhaps the biggest individual release of the week was Nintendo's latest in The Legend Zelda franchise, A Link Between Worlds. It was by far our most popular story of the week with tons of amazing comments. There was also the new Ratchet and Clank: Into the Nexus and the long awaited DLC to BioShock Infinite that brought us back to Rapture: Burial at Sea Episode One.

All in all it was a pretty exciting weeks for games. This year is quickly coming to an end, but we still have the Xbox One's looming release and one of the Destructoid's staff's most anticipated titles Super Mario 3D World right around the corner.

Review: Killzone: Shadow Fall photo
Review: Killzone: Shadow Fall
by Dale North

For franchise sequels that accompany system launches, it's not uncommon to see the reuse of assets or game engines. We've come to expect a simple turning up of the graphics, if you will. The good stuff? The brand new stuff? That usually comes later.

Killzone: Shadow Fall does not follow that pattern. Guerrilla Games went back to the beginning, starting fresh with its first PS4 game. Sometimes a fresh start is the best thing.
