Rockstar Game's open-world detective simulator L.A. Noire goes on sale on May 17, 2011 in North America, and May 20, 2011 in Europe. Would -be detectives will be able to play the game on the 360 or PS3.
“L.A. Noire breaks new ground for us,” said Sam Houser, founder of Rockstar Games. “Its intense blend of action and real detective work defies genre conventions to create a unique and captivating thriller.”
Jake "gumshoe" Gaskill and I have been totally jazzed about this game since it was announced -- it combines two of my very favorite things on earth: Rockstar Games' open-world gaming perfection and the setting of noir Los Angeles of the 1940s. When you add in the game's lofty ambitions when it comes to character and story as well as the dazzling visuals on display in the trailer, and you end up with what could be an amazing title...
...and could be a total failure. That's the thing about trying something new and different. The further you get from what's always been done before in gaming, the more chance there is of heroic missteps.

I don't care though. I'm pre-ordering this one to have it on day one. What about you? Are you as psyched as I am?
