LA Noire (one of my favourite games of all time) is going to be re-released for the Xbox One, Xbox One X, PS4, PS4 Pro, Nintendo Switch and VR. I'm in two minds about whether to get this as I don't want to ruin the memories I have by replaying it but the other half of me is absolutely buzzing to be running around Los Angeles as Cole Phelps in full HD. 

Is there anyone else on here that's a Noire fan?

Surprised by this as I thought the game wasn't a big seller (in saying that, Rayman Legends was re-released on PS4 and Xbox One and that sold poorly).

Me, loved this fucking game. A sequel would be much better than a re-release, but hopefully this does well and subsequently does indeed lead to a sequel.

Anyone else enjoys them?

 

Used to play Sim City a lot back in the day. I recently bought the 2013 Sim City for a fiver, but my god, it is shite. The maps are way too small. So I'm back in Cities Skylines for now.

You should be banned immediately just for that. Sim City 2013 is a typical example of a game/series being 'EA'd' (ie. turned to utter shite).

As for the genre itself, I like them but haven't really played one in a while. Was tempted to buy the classic Rollercoaster Tycoon games on the Android store but it's on my wishlist for the time being.

Anyone on here play it? I just got it the other day. I am bollocks at it but its got me quite hooked. If anyone else has it, give me a shout to play in duo or squad mode.

Basically for those who don't know, there are 100 players with you on a map and the last one standing wins. Its like The Hunger Games. You start with nothing and have to loot to get your items.

As mentioned before, I haven't played it but it does look like a good tactical shooter from the YouTube videos I've seen, which I prefer.

Shame this is currently PC and Xbox One exclusive for now. Would have considered this on PS4.

Had 3 bullshit deaths earlier. My internet isn't great and I died those 3 times from lag - it was playable but the second I got into combat the screen froze for 2 seconds and I could do fuck all to fight back. I had one death of those 3 where I was the 20th person left. Frustrating.

Played it a while back but haven't been in there since Destiny 2 came out. I'll let you know if I get back on but I doubt that's happening anytime soon. I will say they've come a long way since release day

It's okay to mediocre. I only play it once in a while with friends.

What I am still unable to understand is two things regarding the releases

  • Why is a Metroid game coming to 3DS only when the porting was supposed to be easy to the Switch? Yeah I get that they are getting a brand new Metroid and all but surely even they must have thought this could have been ported.
  • Where is the Konami venture for Castlevania considering they even said early next year?
  • Why hasn't Nintendo tried to partner with THQ Nordic to bring Darksiders 3 to the console? It's almost perfect for the Switch.

All-in-all I am happy.

  • Doom/Wolfenstein releases to carry around
  • Super Mario Odyssey 
  • Fire Emblem (about damn time)
  • New Xenoblade

Shit, I forgot about this. Time to catch up methinks. As for one of the bullet points, I thought THQ went under.

Thought they did too but they have the new Darksiders coming out and they  have another game as well (I forget its name). Plus I found out theres a turn-style Battlechasers game coming out soon. How that slipped under the radar considering the popularity of the comic series is funny but im guessing its not that good.

If I hadn't played it on the PC this would have been a sure purchase for me. I think its a good show from Nintendo considering most people think that their choice in game promotion is mostly non-adult oriented.  For me this also throws a little bit of light on what to expect when Metroid hits the Switch next year.

Saw it on Steam the other day but didnt put together that it was the classic redone. 

yeah I didn't know it was called Road Redemption but had just seen a few things over the past week that 'Road Rash is back'. Then had to check just now before making the post that I wasn't getting confused with Road Redemption and Red Dead Redemption xD

Is it out yet? Got the 2015 one, it was crap, if I'm honest. 

Managerial games will always be compared to Football Manager but it this wasn't even close to its early Championship Manager days. 

'18 does look very good mind.

I see EA are being EA and have closed down yet another studio, this one being Visceral Games, the studio behind the Dead Space duo (and the EA'd third one).

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-10-17-ea-has-shut-down-visceral-games

They'll also 'pivot' the Star Wars game that was being developed as well. So that's shoe horned multiplayer, microtransactions, season passes and loot boxes.

Fuck off EA.

Remembering seeing that before, ironically after the last one they closed down (can't remember who that was, Criterion spring to mind if they aren't still going).

It's a meme that will always remain relevant.

Think the last game I got that had EA's involvement was Titanfall 2 but I haven't really picked up anything post that. There just isn't anything they have as an IP which fascinates me.

Titanfall 2 was soooooo underrated, it's a great game. 

Speaking of EA I'm thinking of cancelling my EA Access, its only £20 a year which is pennies but I haven't actually got a game out of the vault in about 18 months, it just seems pointless to me.

Think my EA games were FIFA 14, Battlefield 4 (which I really should have played more online), Star Wars Battlefront (which I got for £15) and FIFA 17 (on offer shortly after release).

Pretty much one game per year on average since the PS4 were released, with Battlefield 4 and FIFA 14 being launch titles.

You're so right about TF2. I think I was disappointed that it was too short but the fight mech and the locations were so gorgeous and it was much better than its predecessor.
