4w ago - Matt Makes Games Inc Indie Game Developer Matt Thorson posted up a video today announcing that TowerFall Ascension is coming to PS4 in early 2014.
To quote: Hello PlayStation! My name's Matt, I'm a Canadian indie game developer living in Vancouver. I live in a house full of indie developers that we like to call IndieHouse.
I've spent the last year and a half of my life making a game called TowerFall Ascension, and it's finally (almost) done. It's been a wonderful, terrifying, and rewarding process.
For the uninitiated, TowerFall is a local multiplayer combat game about using archery to destroy your friends. It's fast€-paced, intense, and strategic, with nuanced controls, one€-hit kills, and limited ammo. It's very simple to learn and almost anyone can play, but if you spend more time with it you'll find many layers of hidden depth waiting to be discovered.
From the moment I had four players jumping around on€ screen, I knew TowerFall was a game about bringing people together. From childhood all through high school and university, I had a lot of meaningful experiences with local multiplayer.
4w ago - Guerrilla Games Director Steven Ter Heide invites fans to watch the Killzone Shadow Fall PlayStation 4 launch trailer below today!
To quote: The wait is almost over - Killzone Shadow Fall comes out November 15th in North America, with the UK and Europe to follow on November 29th!
We're thrilled to be able to show you the launch trailer for Killzone Shadow Fall. It's been an amazing journey getting here, and we're proud of what we were able to accomplish on the new PlayStation 4 hardware. Killzone Shadow Fall represents another big leap forward for us, both in terms of gameplay as well as technology.
When we began working on Killzone Shadow Fall, we set out to redefine the Killzone FPS experience. It had to cater to a new, more resourceful playing style, requiring the use of tactics and intelligence to outmaneuver and outsmart enemies. At the same time, we wanted the game to remain true to its roots as a highly visceral shooter.
As excited as we are to talk about where we've taken the story and gameplay in the Killzone universe with Shadow Fall, we're just as eager to showcase the numerous ways in which we've leveraged the raw horsepower of the PS4 to push the tech in our engine to jaw-dropping new...

5w ago - Guerrilla Technical Director Michiel van der Leeuw shared some Killzone Shadow Fall ultra high bitrate PS4 multiplayer video footage today!
To quote: Killzone Shadow Fall has been built from the ground up for PS4, and the response to the gameplay footage so far has been overwhelmingly positive.
Unfortunately, there are limitations to streamed video on the internet, and many of the clips and trailers we've released thus far aren't being viewed in the best possible fidelity and framerate.
In order to properly demonstrate the framerate and resolution we achieve in Shadow Fall's multiplayer, we've captured and lightly compressed new footage that we're not offering through a video sharing service. Instead, we ask that you download and locally view the high-resolution, uncompressed footage directly from from us.
Important note: Please use a video player with hardware acceleration when viewing the footage. We recommend Windows Media Player for Windows users and QuickTime Player for Mac users.
Do not use a non-accelerated player (such as VLC Media Player) because the framerate and resolution of this movie are simply too high and will likely cause choppy playback.
