LA Noire Slider

L.A. Noire Hits Shelves Again

By Kevin O'Rourke, October 2, 2011 0

L.A. Noire will be back on shelves on November 8th in the US, and November 11th in Europe. This time around, Rockstar Games will be releasing the L.A. Noire Complete Edition. The key factor that makes this a complete version is that the game will include all of the downloadable content that was released between now and then. The Complete Edition will be the PC counterpart to the very successful and creative game. The Complete Edition will be available for purchase through Windows, Steam and OnLive distribution services.

The DLC’s included in the game will be:
-“Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case
-“Reefer Madness” Vice case
-“The Consul’s Car” Traffic case
-“The Naked City” Vice case
-“A Slip of the Tongue” Traffic case.

The specs for the game are listed as:

-Operating System: Windows 7 / Windows Vista Service Pack 1 / Windows XP Service Pack 3 / OnLive for PC or Mac;
-Processor: Intel Dual Core 2.2GHz to Quad Core 3.2GHz / AMD Dual Core 2.4Ghz to Quad Core 3.2Ghz;
-RAM: 2GB to 8GB;
-Hard drive space: 16GB;
-Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce 8600 GT 512MB to NVIDIA GeForce GTX 580 1536MB / Radeon HD 3000 512MB to Radeon HD 6850 1024MB;
-Sound Card: 100% DirectX 9 Compatible;
-DVD Drive.

These don’t sound too intensive for such a large game, but it is recommended to have a beefier PC to be able to play L.A. Noire in the best settings. Also considering that this game will have all of the downloadable content the price for L.A. Noire Complete Edition is very reasonable.

Expect the game November 8th in the US retailing at $49.99

Super Mario 3D Land Details Revealed

By George Pekar, October 2, 2011 2

Now that the official website is up for this soon soon-to-be instant classic fans can get a little bit more excited! (And this will now give more of you out there a reason to purchase that 3DS you’ve been waiting on.) Fans may want to bookmark this page because it does not show too much information at this time (don’t worry it will soon). But that doesn’t mean that the release date isn’t revealed. Drum roll please….November 13th! Only around a month-and-change until you can fully experience Mario in what looks to be the best 3D environment to hit the 3DS.

The only other real information shown on the site is the mention of new power-ups, the return of the Tanooki Suit (the thing that makes you kind of look like a raccoon granting you the ability to run super fast and somewhat fly with your tail), and a brand new 3D trailer! If you do not already have a 3DS you can’t view this in 3D at the Nintendo éShop (unless you steal a friends’ of course); but just by the looks of the dazzling video in 2D you’ll know quickly that this game is for you.

Make sure this is a priority around Thanksgiving time, forget your family. Just kidding of course. Hope you enjoy!
