Rockstar games.
Cop in post ww2 LA, strong story/mystery crime shit.
Sandboxy (I think) where u can also do sidequests to solve crime.

I don't really like sandbox games, but I'm hoping I like this because it looks really great.

I LOVE sandbox games.

Also, actual sandboxes.

You're at work. Fun is not allowed. Give me the number of your workplace so I can grass you in.

Or is your mobile not on silent...

Me neither.

I'm also scared because I shockingly don't really like GTA games. I'd like to try it out when my bro gets it.
But then if you pre-order you get cool extras.


I heard some people talking about it at work, they said they mapped actor's faces, and you have to try and read facial expressions when intervieiwng ppl etc.
It sounds INCREDIBLE.

Although I'm worried it will have "Peter Molyneux" syndrome, ie check out all this cool stuff you can do, but actually it isn't implemented well, or you can't even do it.

It's also mean to be on 3 disks from what I've heard, for the xbox and 1 for the ps3. I think that all the pre-order dlc is going to be purchasable at some point online except maybe the collectors edition stuff.

It's sounding more "Molyneux" with every passing moment.

I also dislike sandbox games without co-op.

I will let you all know how it is, as Amazon gave me $50 in credit for a mix-up with my textbooks.

Also, I get my wisdom teeth out next Wednesday, meaning I have no reason not to spend the next couple days playing it.

And yes, you will be able to buy all the preorder bonuses after launch.

I hate sandbox games. They are usually only sandbox games because it allows developers to artificially expand the game by adding bullshit that hardly makes the story or gameplay better.
I agree with the inhumane treatment of animals.

I think from the sounds of it La Noire is more linear than sandbox, but has elements of free roam where you can intervene in random crimes and such...

I'm gonna have to wait a month and a half to get it though, no Xbox in halls  :icon_sad:

I kind of fancy getting LA Noire, but I think I'll wait until it gets cheaper, I just haven't seen anything that I think is worth the buy.

On the subject of other games: Been playing the Gears of War 3 beta, which has been absolute brilliance from the word go. I've had all the other games and with the previous two multiplayer was a disgusting half arsed shotgun whore problem. On Gears 3, shotguns are still very much there, but there are so many better things to play with it makes it worth it. Plus, ripping off somebodies arm and then beating them to death with it for additional score, while they are forced to watch is perhaps the most amusing thing I have ever seen.

Finished Portal 2 the other week and it was a sheer bit of brilliance. Steven Moffat and J.K Simmons made the game that little bit better, but I never thought such a sequel could happen, and it was so well done and generally awesome.

Also in November news: Mass Effect 3, Skyrim and Gears of War 3 all come out around that time, which is massively depressing but totally awesome at the same time.

And lastly, I picked up a copy of OXM the other day which had a preview on Warhammer 40k: Soace Marine, it looks absolutely tip top. Chaos daemons make an entrance too.

Theres some trailers out for MW3 and it apparently takes place in America, England, Germany, and France.  It looks like you play each countries respective armed forces against an Invasion, possibly Russia and or China.
