Daily News - 20th October 2011 - L.A. Noire, Battlefield 3 and Assassin's Creed: The Movie

L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition Coming Next Month

Those of you who liked L.A. Noire (which I'd wager is more than a few) probably saw this coming, what with it's obvious potential for an easy "Game Of The Year Edition", but today it's become official, and it'll be in gamers' hands next month, on November 18th. The Complete Edition will contain all 5 DLC cases: "Nicholson Electroplating", "Reefer Madness", "The Consul's Car", "The Naked City" and "A Slip of the Tongue", aswell as all the game's added weapon's and outfits, plus Badge Pursuit challenges. If you haven't played the game yet this will be a good excuse to experience it for yourself. Personally, I got pretty bored of the game about half way through, but I know I'm in the minority there, and I did enjoy the game for the most part so I'd definitely recommend it if you're looking for a change from the gritty combat of Modern Warfare 3 or Battlefield 3 next month.

"BUY IT!!!!!!!"

If You Can't Install Battlefield 3 To Your Xbox, Maybe Give It A Miss?...

I mean it's up to you, obviously, but the game's producer Patrick Bach doesn't make it sound like a very enticing prospect:

"The thing with the 360 is that you need to be able to give consumers a game where you don't have to install it on a hard drive, because there are 360s without a hard drive. So we need to give you the option of installing it, rather than just demanding it. You could call it a 'standard-def' version for the 360 if you don't have a hard-drive."

Calling anything "standard-def" nowadays is akin to slapping it in the face, kinda crazy you'd say it about your own game, although to be fair if you own an Xbox and know Battlefield 3 exists, then your Xbox almost definitely has a hard drive already. This doesn't really change much as far as the game's overall quality goes, but I thought you guys without hard drives should know.

Not long to wait now, for either the HD or SD versions (same version though)

Seems Like An Assassin's Creed Movie Deal Is Close

Apparently the bidding war in Hollywood for the rights to an Assassin's Creed movie franchise os drawing to a close, with Sony Pictures looking to come out on top. Now while movies based on video games aren't usually worth getting excited about, this one may be different, as part of the deal to buy the film rights includes the clause that the film can only be made if Ubisoft get to keep a very close eye on the project. Logical to assume then, that the eventual movie won't be abolutely shit! Although maybe that's asking a little bit too much of a video game movie adaptation.

The series definitely seems like it would lend itself to movies fairly well
