L.A. Noire HQ (Xbox360)
"L.A Noire is an interactive detective story set in the classic noir period of the late 1940's. L.A. Noire blends action, detection and complex storytelling and draws players into an open-ended challenge to solve a series of gruesome murders. Set in a perfectly recreated Los Angeles before freeways, with a post-war backdrop of corruption, drugs and jazz, L.A. Noire will truly blend cinema and gaming."
|Whore of the Orient promotes "division and negativity... (3)|
|City of Monash councillor Jieh-Yung Lo is rather upset with the use of the term 'Whore of the Orient' for KMM's new game, built by former Team Bondi developers of L.A. Noire fame. He wants it tarred and feathered.
Oh, wait - he actually wants the title retracted and to cease all development entirely. The use of the "O-word is very similar to the N-word", he claims. Lo may refer it to the Human Rights Commission.

|Team Bondi's Whore of the Orient survived the liquidation of the studio and absorption into KMM, and just to prove it did some gameplay footage has now leaked online; about a minute's worth of footage.
The game's development had stalled after a lack of funds, and lay-offs at KMM, but back in June the Australian government granted them $200k. Whore of the Orient is due mid-2015.

|Team Bondi was bought by Kennedy Miller Mitchell (KMM) back in 2011 after the studio collapsed following a rocky and very public workplace dispute after L.A. Noire shipped. They're were working on something new.
Whore of the Orient was their latest project, but it suddenly looked a lot less likely after KMM was hit with lay offs. However $200k has been awarded to the studio by New South Wales.
