If you haven't seen this game I recommend taking a look.

Looks like it's right up the alley of 10KB.

Its looking real nice, yeah. The main vibe the previews give is that its L.A. Confidential: The Video Game, and that's A-OK by me.

I've done about 5-6 of the game's cases, and they are sweet. Simple puzzles, reading expressions during interogations, branching investigation plotlines. As an example of 1-on-1 Urban RPG scenarios, there is a lot in this game worth emulating.

Wait until you're about twice that far in. That's where it gets more tedious than almost any game I've ever played - and I've got some console stamina. I sat all the way through Oblivion. I played every single Halo game front-to-back - in a row.

The only other game I gave up on so definitively was Final Fantasy XIII, which broke my heart and turned me off the franchise so strongly that I haven't looked back yet.

Ouch. I guess it plays out it bag of tricks by then. That's unfortunate.

The chocobos still love you! Grin

I didn't really get into FF until X... and then it was positively fantastic to have a main character that's not the slightest bit sullen or emo. Then again the entire setting is a little more sunny that most of the other FF worlds. It gives him some actual range of responses when truely horrible shit comes piling down on him, a certain resiliance missing from many console RPG heroes.

Getting back to L.A. Noir, I did like that leveling up was accomplished in part by moving you through different departments. First case you are a beat cop. Then you do some Traffic Division, then some Vice Squad, and finally on to Homicide. It was a neat mechanism for shifting the focus of your cases.

Why does the best Final Fantasy (9, of course) never get any love?

I actually just picked up LA Noire, since it was ultra cheap (the collected edition with all the bonus cases) and I had some Xmas / Birthday gift cardery (the curse of them being all but back to back) to use up and figured "Why not?".  Luckily my current schedule means it'll be played intermittently, so that might stop it from becoming tedious.

After Gangster Squad, I'm seriously thinking of kicking it old school once 10kB comes out.

I'm going with because the characters were in the super-deformed style and it has what appears to be Orco's cousin (the inept sidekick from He-man) in it.  Might have been the best story of them all - I'll never know. I could never get past those two points of presentation.

I'll be curious to hear your initial and extended takes on L.A. Noir Smiley.

LA Noir was so great, i'm still playing it monthly despite having the game already for a long time.  Funny fact was that the graphics were so high demanding that it let some PS3 systems overheat and shut themselves down LOL Evil

It shut down some of the older 360s as well.
