Well, this blog post is about two and a half month late, but no one else posted it, and late is better than never!
On february 13th, a Rockstar spokesperson wrote, answering a reader Q&A on the company's official site."Don't count out the possibility of a new game in the L.A. Noire franchise in the future. We simply have not decided anything. We're all very pleased with how that game turned out and are considering what the future may hold for L.A. Noire as a series." After Team Bondi closed down, I think many of us thought L.A NOIRE 2 just wouldn't happen, however, this shows there's still a big chance for a sequel.
However, it doesn't seem like we will se the follow-up to the crime solving action game of 2011 in the near future though, as R…Read more >
This is the experimental poll for L.A. Noire wiki.
Why do you need a experimental poll? Simple. The Admin has given me the permission to make polls, but you also have the chance to decide, would you like a weekly poll, a monthly poll, or not?
I will say it again, this is an experimental poll, if you have any advice, leave a comment below.
Thank you for the vote and have a nice day!
Note: The poll will stop on February 11, 2012.
Update: This poll is ended, see L.A. Noire Poll,1 , a new poll.Read more >

While Team Bondi's L.A. Noire is widely regarded as one of the best games released this year, it looks like it didn't manage to stop the studio that made it from being placed into administration.
The Australian studio has been under investigation about treatment of its employees, and it's been reported that no publisher wanted to publish their next game.
Smart Company reports that it called the studio's office and was told that "the company was no longer located there". The company might still end up being sold or merged, though.
If this is the end of Team Bondi, who would you like to make L.A. Noire 2? Assuming that a sequel will be made, which I think given the sales of the original is pretty much a given.

As many of you have probably noticed, Wikia has introduced a new feature - Game Calendar - that is currently being tested on Assassin's Creed Wiki.
The Calendar is displayed on most of the wiki's pages in the right sidebar, below the search box and page count, and displays a recent or upcoming video game premiere. If you click on the "open calendar" link, you'll be able to browse through the whole calendar, with entries for many games that will premiere in the upcoming weeks and months, and links to Wikia's wikis about most of the games in question, which will give you more information on each title.

Rockstar Games announced today that a PC port of its Xbox 360 and PS3 crime drama L.A. Noire will be coming out this fall after shipping over 4 million copies on consoles.
The Rockstar Leeds-developed port will "run on a wide range of PCs" according to the announcement, and feature graphical enhancements, gamepad support and the option for stereoscopic 3D on hardware that supports it.
Rockstar has brought ports of many of its popular games -- including games in the Grand Theft Auto and Manhunt series -- to the PC months or even years after their initial console release.
The company has not yet announced a PC port for last year's multi-million-selling Red Dead Redemption.

Team Bondi's period crime thriller L.A. Noire has been one of the most talked-about games since its release last month, and with a slate of downloadable cases on the horizon, it doesn't look like that chatter will be dying down anytime soon. The latest DLC is out today, and Gamestop had a chance to talk to game director Brendan McNamara to see how he has dealt with the reaction to his game and how these new cases will fit into the overall structure of the game. Amognst other things Brendan reports that the 2 dropped desks, Burglary and Banco, never left the early Dev Stages and that the creative team had a chance to gather more than 1800 crimes to base cases on!
