LEGO: Pirates of the Caribbean will, if you didn’t guess from the title, play out memorable scenes from the first three films, as well as the upcoming fourth film, â€œPirates of the Caribbean – On Stranger Tides,â€ adding in the usual splash of LEGO humour to keep things interesting.
To be honest, I wasn’t really into the LEGO video game franchise until I played the latest Lego Star Wars III: The Clone Wars on the 3DS. They are fun, easygoing games and judging by the trailer below, LEGO: Pirates of the Caribbean looks just as good. O and did I mention easy trophies?

Ah gangsters, who wouldn’t want to be one in the post-war boom of Hollywood’s Golden Ageâ€¦ well in LA Noire you don’t get to be one.
Instead you are FBI agent Cole Phelps thrown into a city of corruption and drug addicts. But what do I know? I haven’t had any time with the game and this segment should rather be finished off by someone who has. Our own Geoff Tim had a hands-on with game and wrote up an excellent preview: L.A Noire hands-on preview – a real police quest.
