Listen, we all want Red Dead Redemption 2 to come to Switch. That's a given. It's one of the year's biggest games and has gotten rave reviews all over the world, so we'd be silly to even suggest we're not jealous of our PS4, Xbox One and PC-owning chums who all have the chance to explore the Wild West and do some rootin' and tootin' in the...
"We’re very sanguine at this point"
Take-Two Interactive is one of the world's biggest publishers of video games thanks to its ownership of Rockstar and 2K Games, and owns some of the biggest properties in the business - including Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption. The company has supported Switch during its first year with the likes...
You use the touchscreen, ya see?
For those of us that already own L.A. Noire on PC / PS3 / Xbox 360, it's tough to justify buying it again for the Nintendo Switch. Then you see Rockstar's new Switch trailer and realise how cool it is to have the game on a portable device, and suddenly it's time to check the bank balance. Assuming these are real...
Retail version requires 14GB download, too
If you're planning on downloading L.A. Noire when it arrives on Switch, you may want to make sure you've got a MicroSD card installed, as the game is too big to be downloaded to the console's internal storage. Rockstar has revealed that the eShop version is a whopping 29GB in size. The S
Fine if you're a PS4 Pro or Xbox One X owner, mind
L.A. Noire arrives on Switch on November 14th, and to build excitement Rockstar has released a new trailer in 4K Ultra HD resolution. It gives you a good idea of what the game's all about - sleuthing, crime solving, flashing police badges, that sort of thing - but we can't help but feel that...
UPDATE: "For real this is in no way confirming a GTAV port is coming"
Update: Vern has now posted a clarification post on NeoGAF: Lol all those quotes. Been sitting on this cuz I'm not sure it's really worthy of a post (because I lack the most important details) but f*** it, why not...heard awhile back more from R* is in development,...

Rockstar has reconfirmed that it will include all five DLC packs, touch controls in handheld mode and...
The good, the bad & the controversial
Rockstar Games is a business powerhouse at the top of the gaming industry. Producing sales figures some developers could only dream of, with the Grand Theft Auto series reaching over 150 million copies sold, the studio rarely puts a foot wrong. On 7th September it was announced that 1940’s crime title...
More expensive than the Xbox One and PS4 versions
Rockstar has revealed that the Switch version of L.A. Noire will cost $10 more on Switch than it does on Xbox One and PlayStation 4. While it's not comparing like for like - the Switch version has exclusive features such as motion control, HD Rumble and touch-screen crime-solving - it should be...
With motion controls, touch commands and HD Rumble, to boot
Rockstar Games has announced that it is resurrecting its acclaimed 1940s crime title L.A. Noire for modern consoles, including the Nintendo Switch. The Switch version of the seminal classic will boast all of the DLC released so far, as well as motion controls, HD Rumble, "contextual...
Kirby's Cancelled Curse?
In the first of a series of features that'll form a mini Month of Kirby — ahead of the release of Kirby: Triple Deluxe in May — we look at a few games starring the pink mascot that never saw the light of day. Kirby has had a storied run as one of Nintendo’s most recognizable characters, having appeared in traditional...
Would Rockstar's latest epic have you reaching for your wallet?
Oh boy. When I published our latest "Soapbox" piece about Grand Theft Auto V and how it may not be entirely suited to everybody's tastes (it takes all sorts to make the world go around, folks), I wasn't expecting a topic with over 500 comments. It's been fascinating to see how...
Handful of salt at the ready
After a brief delay Grand Theft Auto V is down for a 17th September release on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 and Rockstar, the game's developer, has not commented on it ever emerging on the next generation of consoles. Rumours have always been rife that Grand Theft Auto V will eventually become available for Wii U,...
Rumours still persist
Recently Rockstar announced that it would unfortunately be delaying its hotly anticipated title Grand Theft Auto V from a spring release to fall. This led people to believe that the studio had possibly done so to accommodate the development of a Wii U and PC version of the game. According to a tweet from GameSpot, Rockstar has...
Rockstar keeps its options open
Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most anticipated games for 2013, with the title being released in Spring for Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. It did originally appear that the game would not be making it to Wii U or PC, but Rockstar’s vice-president Dan Houser says the developer has not ruled either platform out...
Got Your Pinch Of Salt Ready?
Retailer listings for unreleased games should never really be taken at face value - they're prone to mistakes and errors, and have led to many red faces in the past. However, there's sometimes an element of truth in them as well, and we imagine that many people are crossing their fingers that this is the case with...
A case of the right game on the wrong platform?
It might be the highest-rated game in the history of the Nintendo DS, but critical success hasn’t translated into commercial victory for Rockstar’s GTA: Chinatown Wars. The game failed to make the top 10 or 20 best-selling games for the month, and has sold well below the 200,000 copies that Rockstar was hoping for. In fact, only 88,000 copies have..
Dealing and Delivering
Fancy yourself as a bit of a drug dealer do ya? No of course you don’t, you’re a DS gamer after all! Well just pretend you are delivering Christmas presents rather than narcotics and you’ll be fine. Following his father’s murder, Huang Lee has a simple mission: deliver an ancient sword to his Uncle Kenny to ensure his family retains control of the Triad gangs of..
