Some of you might remember that at the beginning of the year I predicted that L.A. Noire could well become game of 2011, and some people also claim I'm Rockstar Games biased as I have consistently given GTA, Red Dead & Beaterator full marks. Well if they didn't keep making the best games on the market then my rating of them might change, but that time is most certainly not now as I have finally got my hands on L.A. Noire and it is perfect. Again I reiterate, “Front Runner for Game Of The Year 2011”. You can quote me on that.

As you may remember my only concern was it may be just a little complicated for your average gamer and the recent succesion of instruction videos for Brink over the month before release says that my fears were not unfounded.

‘MORE HALO!’ When ODST was announced I was as happier than Larry, actually I was as happy as a Larry convention. Then the news came – ‘you will not be playing as Master Chief’ – disappointment set in. Halo without Master Chief is like morning without coffee, it’s like curry without lager. Then along came Halo Wars and I found that I still loved the series without the use of my favourite Spartan and my faith began to restore.
