As the name implies, this game takes the original Deception IV’s content and adds more to it, alongside a new PS4 version new to this edition.

For myself, they were the legendary publishers that helped bring out Half-Life, Team Fortress Classic, Opposing Forces and Counter-Strike. A few years before my time, they were the graphics adventure king, offering a plethora of highly reputable point and click adventures. 1984 brought the release of the first King's Quest - what is largely known as gaming's first 3D Animated Adventure title. After 7 sequels, the franchise looked to be finished back in 1998. This also had a lot to do with the company being sold to CUC International, consolidation and restructuring at the time. Fast-forwarding to the 2010s, gamers rejoiced at the announcement Sierra Entertainment was to be revived, under Activision-Blizzard, and sought to revive classic franchises. King's Quest was one of the first game franchises to be published and revived and would be handled by The Odd Gentlemen, who some may know as the developers of the charming indie game - The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom. It’s planned to be an episodic tale, much like the popular TellTale games like The Walking Dead. However, King's Quest retains much of its light-hearted humour and grand sense of adventure all the whole offering players many instances of choices and subsequent consequences that followed.]]> Final Yakuza 5 Developer Interview Released, Digital Pre-Orders Now Live http://www.gamingunion.net/news/12113/final-yakuza-5-developer-interview-released-digital-pre-orders-now-live/ http://www.gamingunion.net/news/12113/final-yakuza-5-developer-interview-released-digital-pre-orders-now-live/ Sun, 30 Aug 2015 18:48:29 EDT Earlier this summer, SEGA released the first of three developer interviews for Yakuza 5 in preparation for the western release later this year.
