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.

Killzone: Shadow Fall gets a new story trailer

Look, I'm not necessarily a Killzone person or even a shooter person (I usually only play the campaigns). But Killzone: Shadow Fall looks great. I suppose the franchise fans out there will get more out of this brand new stor...

Jimquisition: Reasons To Pass On Season Passes
by Jim Sterling

You were promised an episode on season passes, in the wake of Jimquisition complaining about downloadable content. There is a season for all things, and that season has come to pass.

Here is a nice little bit of shouting on why season passes are ridiculous, and why it would behoove you to pass up on the bloody things.
