ICC Update #27

Of fedoras and FPSs.


It was always going to be about L.A. Noire this week really, wasn’t it? We’ve had Rockstar’s latest opus since Thursday and have sunk around 6 hours into its allegedly 20-hour story. Whilst we’re not usually in the habit of providing reviews that you might read on the more well-known videogame sites (and weeks before we would ever get our thoughts into a coherent post), we’ll put up some impressions of L.A. Noire if it moves us sufficiently to do so.  We already put up some First Impressions of Brink, of course; the innovative but broken objective-based FPS from Splash Damage also getting added to the rapidly swelling Xbox 360 section of the IC Collection.

Xbox 360 and FPS seem to be the keywords for Update #27, in fact. One particularly fruitful trip to our local CEX saw us snap up a veritable bounty of them – no less than six new shooters to put in our firing line. They range from recent titles that didn’t make much of a splash (Aliens Vs. Predator), to near-ancient games from the early days of the system’s shelf life (Project Dark Zero). None of them particularly broke the bank; we picked up all half-dozen of them for a mere £30. That’s the kind of maths that we like here – simple and economic!
