Tropico 5 - Complete Collection on PlayStation 4 and PC
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

New Definitive Edition of Tropico 5 Bundles the strategy game with all DLC on PlayStation 4Thought the summer was over? Guess again, because El Presidente (together with the help of his ever-loyal servants at Kalypso Media) has decreed that the good times keep rolling with the release of Tropico 5 – Complete Collection on the PlayStation®4 system across the UK and export territories. Packing in both full expansions ‘Espionage’ and ‘Waterborne’ along with all 10 DLC add-ons released to date, Tropico 5 - Complete Collection contains more hidden extras than a Tropican employment contract and ensures that even the most budget-conscious of wannabe-dictators can get their dynasties in full-swing without having to raid their Swiss bank accounts for extra funds. Of course, El Presidente is all too aware that many PS4 players already own Tropico 5, and so for these players we are happy to announce the release of a special Complete Collection Upgrade Pack.

In addition, we have also introduced a special upgrade system for Steam users, where the Steam store will automatically work out which DLC content you do not already own and compile it all into a specially discounted package...

Cinematography: Theory and Practice, 3rd Edition from Focal PressFocal Press has published Cinematography: Theory and Practice - Image Making for Cinematographers and Directors, 3rd Edition.

The world of cinematography has changed more in the last few years than it has since it has in 1929, when sound recording was introduced. New technology, new tools and new methods have revolutionized the art and craft of telling stories visually.

Even experienced film artists have a need to update and review new methods and equipment. These change affect not only the director of photography but also the director, the camera assistants, gaffers, and digital imaging technicians...
