Will Nintendo get any attention this holiday season?

Will Nintendo get any attention this holiday season?

Nintendo is in trouble this holiday season. There. I said it. After all, someone had to, right?

Killzone: Shadow Fall Review

As one of the first PlayStation 4 exclusive launch-titles, and the only first-person shooter on that short list, Killzone: Shadow Fall had some high expectations to live up to. What we saw in previous installments of this series was a gritty bit of darkness, all-out war and killing with only the lights of the enemy's eyes to steer the player.
