Dear Diary,

Well, it would seem that my friends are getting really greedy these days. I’m not sure how I feel about it…

Video: L.A. Noire Gag Reel

Obviously, there will be bloopers when recording the voice work for a videogame, but in the case of Rockstar’s L.A. Noire, the groundbreaking motion-tracking technology meant that the gag reel would be visual as well. Depth Analysis, the Australian tech firm that supplied the technology used by Team Bondi in L.A. Noire released this video of bloopers from their recording sessions.
After you get past the idea that it’s slightly insane that they would take the time to render the bloopers as fully as the final scenes in the game, it’s actually an amazing demonstration of just how amazing the technology is. It really does capture every single minute expression, down to the sneezes and tongue movements.

john_lennon_2-12Well, this week’s SingStore update is a complete dud. Well, I guess not if you’re a big John Lennon fan. Because aside from a five-pack of Lennon tracks, there are literally only two songs in this SingStar DLC update. They are:

“Hot” by Avril Lavigne
“Animal Nitrate” by Suede

And then the John Lennon 2 pack, which contains “Mother,” “Whatever Gets You Thru’ The Night,” “Stand By Me,” “Nobody Told Me,” and “Jealous Guy.”

So… Better luck next fortnight, I suppose!

WiiU_ZeldaWindWakerND_Scrn09Nintendo released a new Nintendo Direct video this morning, and since it was focused on the Wii U, I couldn’t really get my panties in a bunch about them not mentioning Animal Crossing: New Leaf. There was some really good stuff teased, including some really high-profile game announcements. Shame that the release dates are likely to be 2014 or 2015!

This Week’s Rock Band DLC Isn’t Exactly Stronger

Stronger-What-Doesn-t-Kill-You-Music-Video-kelly-clarkson-28156021-1209-680Well, for those of you (like me) with Rock Band Blitz, this week’s Rock Band Music Store update is a non-event. There are four tracks to choose from this week, but as they were all included with Blitz, they’re not exactly new. Although if you never bought Blitz, then they’re new to you! And they are some good songs, too. They are:

“Stronger (What Doesn’t Kill You)” by Kelly Clarkson
“Cult of Personality” by Living Colour
“Bang Your Head (Metal Health)” by Quiet Riot
“Spoonman” by Soundgarden

“Stronger” is the only one with keyboards, but they have added Pro Guitar and Pro Bass upgrades for “Cult of Personality” and “Spoonman” if that’s your bag, baby.

No Ni No Kuni For You

noninokuniAll the way back in August of last year, I decided to place a pre-order with Namco Bandai for the Ni No Kuni Wizard’s Edition. It was only available through them, and the more people who pre-ordered the collector’s edition, the more swag they were going to include in the box. So I did my part. Unfortunately, in this case, the early bird did not get the worm. [UPDATED 1/23]
