Tokyo Storm Warning

Quite a strange day weather wise. The wind had been picking up, bit by bit, through the morning and by lunch time it was really blowing a gale outside accompanied by a torrential downpour of rain that lasted no longer than fifteen minutes or so. By the afternoon we were back to blue skies and sunshine again.

In games news, we couldn't resist getting a copy of L.A. Noire, and after playing the opening scenes it's pretty safe to say that this is a classic. In some ways it harks back to old school adventure games where you comb the scene of a crime looking for clues before interrogating the suspects, but what sets it apart is the astonishing level of detail in the faces. It really is possible to watch their expression change when you accuse a suspect of withholding information or present them with a damning bit of evidence. It really is tremendously involving and hugely satisfying to figure out the truth and crack the case.
