Review: L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files

I've made my love for L.A. Noire very clear. Sure it's flawed, and presents itself as an open world game when it's really not, but the character interactions and camp really make it. Team Bondi (and its cast) put in so much effort into ever...

Review: Monster of the Deep: Final Fantasy XV

Final Fantasy XV is an institution. If someone on the development team hasn't named their kid Noctis yet I'd be surprised -- especially given that some have probably spent the better part of a decade on some form of it. And given the s...
