Rockstar Games Presents L.A. Noire

My friend Derek turned onto this game. Won't be released until Sept 2010, but it looks FANTASTIC. When I saw the street view in the trailer, I could just imagine playing on my big screen and being in my own private LA Confidential.

For those of you not in the know, I am a Film Noir fanatic. Watched them all, or as many of them as I could get my hands on, they are not always so easy to come by. Have read everything by James Ellroy, the Demon Dog of current Crime Fiction and Noir. If you haven't, you should start with his LA Quartet. I aways say to people reading Ellory is like being punched in the stomach then slapped in the face. His writing is punctuated, biting, unremorseful, and totally addictive. He gives steamy underbellies a good name.
