Dannii Minogue - Galaxy

One of my favourite artist, the fabulous Dannii Minogue, is finally back with a brand new single and video. The track "Galaxy" is a classic dance-pop track, co-written by Sia and produced by Ian Masterson. This is just what we needed this fall. Let's hope a new album is in the works.

L.A. Noire HD for Playstation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and more

There are some video games that are so good you'd buy them twice. One of my all-time favourite games is Rockstar Game's "L.A. Noire", originally released back in 2011 where you get to play as a detective in a film noir inspired mystery game set in Los Angeles, 1947. The city itself looks amazing and is almost the main character of the game. I love just driving around, exploring the gigantic open world.

The remastered HD version will be released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch on November 14th, along with "L.A. Noire: The VR Case Files" for HTC Vive, which features seven select cases rebuilt for VR.

Whatever you do, don't miss out on this masterpiece of a game. It's truly a must for all fans of old Hollywood and film noir. It's like living in an old movie. Pre-order your copy now from Amazon.
