Sierra Games and Activision announced at PAX that the second episode of King's Quest, called Rubble Without a Cause, will release this fall.

The episode takes place five years after the end of the first episode, after Graham has become King, and many characters from the first episode will return for another round. A small teaser was dropped earlier today as well.

The first episode released on July 20th. You can read our review here.

If you aren't too busy collecting all of the Disney Infinity figurines for 3.0, waiting for Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain to preload, or planning your pick up for Mad Max, you may be interested in the gameplay launch trailer for Destiny: The Taken King expansion. Bungie has said they want to try something different this time with Destiny in that they want to add in a real story, so hey, maybe The Taken King will rope in a few more souls ready to farm for light pants.

Destiny: The Taken King launches on September 15, 2015 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.

I was not looking forward to playing Mirror's Edge Catalyst until I got my hands on it at E3, as it seems to have everything I would hate in a game. But playing it for that brief moment at E3 left me wanting more, especially when it came to the story. And like EA, DICE, and Dark Horse heard my pleas, they have announced a Mirror's Edge comic series to delve more into Faith's backstory before the events of Catalyst. Called Mirror's Edge Exordium, it will release as a 6-part series in one week.

Christofer Emgard, the writer behind Mirror's Edge Catalyst game, is at the helm for the comic series as well. Here's a bit of what he had to say.

Emgard describes the comic as one that will fill in any gaps from the game regarding her background and how past events have shaped her character and her relationship with the runner community. He is, however, quick to point out that players of the game will not have to have the comic in their personal memory database in order to understand the game’s story or Faith’s motivation.

“The game is not dependent upon the comic, but some answers, like the relationships between characters, will be explained only in the comic,” Emgard explained.

Square Enix announced at PAX Prime this past weekend that Final Fantasy XV will release in 2016, but then they didn't provide a narrower window than the year. However, we can assume it will not be in the spring time frame as they are holding an event in March 2016. I suppose it could be a launch event, but I'm doubting it greatly.

"We’re proud of our technical capabilities and the work we’ve done to help shape the open-world genre,” said Christofer Sundberg, Chief Creative Officer of Avalanche Studios, who is working on the project with Square Enix. “We hold the Final Fantasy franchise, and the team working on it, in such high regard and are excited to be a part of the next chapter.”

With Avalanche Studios helping out, now the implementation of the driving in the game makes far more sense. You normally don't think of driving a car when it comes to FF games, but that's exactly what will be going on with this one. Check out the trailer below that shows some of the driving gameplay.

February is about to become the second Christmas of video game releases, as Square Enix and Eidos Montreal have announced that Deus Ex: Mankind Divided will join the February lineup on February 23, 2016.

That's the same date as Mirror's Edge Catalyst. I wonder how Vader will hold himself together.

Square Enix has also chosen this moment to introduce a rather odd preorder campaign for the game. Called "Augment Your Preorder", various tiers of incentives and extras will unlock as more preorder copies are reserved worldwide. In addition, fans can choose which preorder bonuses they will receive from each unlocked tier.

Here are the tiers according to the press release:

TIER 1 – ONE ITEM PER PRE-ORDER (UNLOCKED FOR EVERYONE ON AUG. 31)
Choose between three Starter Packs that cater to stealth, aggressive or nostalgic players.

  • Intruder Pack - Provides a custom-skinned version of Adam Jensen's trench coat and pistol with a silencer, laser sight, recoil and accuracy upgrades. Other bonuses include two EMP grenades, five packs of 10MM pistol ammo, 1000 credits and a Praxis point for early augmentations.
  • Enforcer Pack - Includes a custom-skinned version of Adam Jensen's combat armor and combat rifle with a holosight, reload and capacity upgrades. Players will also receive two HE grenades, five packs of 5.56MM combat rifle ammo, 1000 credits and a Praxis Point for early augmentations
  • Classic Pack - Grants access to Adam Jensen's iconic combat armor, trench coat and revolver from Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Players will also receive an extra pack of revolver Ammo.

TIER 2 – ONE ITEM PER PRE-ORDER
Pick between one of two bonuses that further immerse players into the game world – a digital art book that shows the aesthetic of the game, or a digital OST sampler with six tracks from award winning composer Michael McCann.

TIER 3 – AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE
Unlock the “Desperate Measures” pre-order mission in which Adam returns to the epicenter of the Ruzicka Train Station explosion and must rely on his augmentations and covert operative skills to unveil the true culprit responsible for the bombing.

TIER 4 – ONE ITEM PER PRE-ORDER
Get an in-depth look at the Deus Ex universe with a digital comic book that dives deeper into the game’s global conspiracies, or with a novella that follows iconic characters from Deus Ex: Human Revolution with new and unknown details on their lives.

TIER 5 – AVAILABLE FOR EVERYONE
For the first time in the franchise’s history, if players meet this tier, the game will release four days before the official release date.

A Collector's Edition is also available for preorder, which will include all of the rewards from the Augment Your Preorder campaign, a 48-page Titan art book, a 9" Adam Jensen figurine, steelbook case, and the Day 1 Edition of Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

I think I have a new piece for my throne.

Whaat the heell, just stumbled on this news story about Allen Iverson. Man, such a shame. He was one of my all-time favorites - back in the mid 90s when I used to watch NBA all the time. He was one kick-ass point-guard.

Aaaanyways, it's a super-hot, but lovely Monday morning and we're all still alive. Just get up and enjoy the fresh (or smog-infested) air, and head out into the world, believing in yourself and giving it all you've got.

My kid's starting her first day at school tomorrow, and I'm more excited than she is.

Other than that, gearing up for Metal Gear Solid 5: Phantom Pain, which is scheduled to arrive tomorrow (Now, then let's see what gaming news can be found on August 31, 2015.
