The long cable of the law: L.A. Noire VR is out now

It's an odd feeling, in a way, that 'Rockstar releases VR game' isn't the biggest news in the world.

So what should PC gamers expect from L.A. Noire? Well, for a start they should expect a strange hybrid of a point adventure game, a GTA-free roaming driving game with on-foot pursuits and shoot-outs, all hung on an arduous, sometimes perplexing interrogation game. But what else? And what could be fixed? What should be fixed? And what about Red Dead Redemption? There's lots of things…
