http://www.destructoid.com/review-l-a-noire-201203.phtml L.A. Noire is a game that will take many players by surprise. With its arcade driving controls and open world, not to mention the backing of Rockstar, your average gamer could be forgiven for thinking that this 1946 detective game might merely be Grand Theft Auto played from the other side of the law. Nothing could be further from the truth, however. L.A. Noire has more in common with point and click adventure games than open-world crime simulators, and it's better in practice than it may look on paper. (Jim Sterling)

http://www.destructoid.com/creative-to-make-something-special-with-alien-game-201250.phtml "Well, the team finished Viking about three years ago now, and that was ... flawed when it came out for PS3 and 360," said Creative's Tim Heaton. "... So we developed a demo using some of the technology from Viking, but really quite changed, and we took it to SEGA. We knew the Alien license was part of SEGA's portfolio, so we showed them the demo and that was when everything changed. They got it, and it all became very clear that there was an opportunity there. The team were absolutely obsessed with it -- it is the perfect videogame content, is not? It's fantastic and the legacy. (Creative's Tim Heaton)
