I nice change of pace, with imaginative new gameplayGNordell | July 31, 2013 | Review of L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition
I thought this game was pretty rad. It feels good to be a good guy in a Rock Star game. I'll say right now that the game is definitely not for everyone. And I can see a lot of people getting fed up with it pretty easily. I'm a sucker for the exploration aspects, looking for clues and the outstanding motion capture and acting. That might not be enough for everyone though.
Gameplay can be horrendously slow, and you have to commit and hour ot two at a time to finish cases. The shotouts are easy and bland. Tailing people is stupid and the part I dislike the most. It takes forever, ususally resulting in me getting impatient, and caught, then starting that section over. I also think Cole can fly off the handle in really uncalled for ways. I say that I "Doubt" someones story, and Cole freaks out! Good going dude, they'll obviously trust you now...
Not a fan of zombies? Don't let that deter you!GNordell | July 3, 2013 | Review of The Walking Dead
Damn this game is hard to put down! Each time a new episode comes out, I play through it immediately. I bought the game for $15 and after the final episode, will have put in about 15 hours. Considering I'll play through it again with different choices, I'd say it's a hell of a bargain. If it ever goes on sale for less, but it immediately!! It might not be everyone's cup of tea. It can be slow, but it's always entertaining. Give it a shot! I can't believe how many times this game has actually made me feel such strong emotions for decisions I make impacting fictional characters. It really messes with your sense of morality. Sometimes I want to mess around with it, but my conscious stops me. How many games do you know where your conscious stops you from making poor decisions!? Truly an outstanding game!
