LA Noire First Impressions

All I can say is wow.

Although the game starts of fairly slow, pace does pick up fast once you are past the tutorial cases and you are free to carry out cases at your own will, It's not a fast paced game at all, it requires thinking, and thats what I like, It's similar to the Phoenix Wright series, you need to be able to detect contradictions, lies and truths.
   Team Bondi and Rockstar have made an unusual approach, using a new way to record facial animation, many cameras are used around an actors face to produce an exact replica in the game world, you're use of psychology is put to the test as you watch carefully peoples reactions to your questions to detect if they are lying - just like in real interrogations.

   It's definitely a unique game, do not be mistaken by comparing it to Grand Theft Auto or the recent 'Red Dead Redemption, there is shooting in the game, but it does not occur often (And you can't massacre people on the streets!)

I love it so far, and I can't wait to get back to it!

Eurogamer Expo 2011

All the huge gaming and technology expo's, E3, Comic Con, PAX, CES. What's the trend here? They are all in the US, and I and many people like me who live in the UK have no chance of getting to ANY of these.

But, hope is not lost as we DO have Eurogamer! Although it is not as globally known as prestigious expo's such as E3, were Nintendo, Microsoft and Sony battle it out to have the best conference, Eurogamer still gives you a chance to play some upcoming games that aren't released (Including Battlefield 3!!!), go to some conferences or get some advice on careers in the gaming industry while still being able to stay in the UK!

Eurogamer 2011 takes place in London Earls Court between the 22nd - 25th of September and it's going to be awesome (My first gaming expo)

I Plan to post some videos documenting me and my friend's day and, hopefully we can get press passes!

Apologies for the absence

I am very sorry for my lack of posting recently, It's exam time in the UK and I really don't have enough time to post reviews alongside my coursework and revision, I will still try to post the odd video and trailer, but don't expect to receive much until I finish school forever.

(June 10th ! ! )

In the mean time, heres a trailer.
