Rockstar Games has announced the details of their Rockstar Pass and upcoming DLC content for L.A. Noire. All previously “pre-order only” content is now available. They also announced that two new cases will be coming this summer.
The “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case will be released on June 21, and the “Reefer Madness” Vice case will be released on July 12. The cases will sell for $3.99 each, or you can get all the DLC by purchasing the “Rockstar Pass” for $9.99.
Rockstar games just teased us with this:
“Next week, look out for new info on downloadable content for L.A. Noire, including the release of all the retail exclusive pre-order cases and content, along with details on new cases and the Rockstar Pass.”
This has me excited, and I haven’t even finished the game yet! IMO, we need some kind of case involving the 50 golden film reels tho. The only way to find them all, is to either use a walk-through, or literally travel and walk to every possible location in the game.
Rockstar Games is hitting its stride now. Two straight games that are genre defining, and potentially revolutionary, they’ve released now, both of which to fan and critical acclaim. But which one is better? Team Bondi’s homage to film noire or Rockstar San Diego’s western classic?
I’ve already stated on this blog that Red Dead Redemption is among my favorite games of all time, and L.A. Noire was my most anticipated game of 2011. But, which game will I say is better?
I have to warn you, this post contains spoilers for both games. If you haven’t finished it, I suggest you wouldn’t read the “plot” section of this post.
PS and Rockstar have both just released the following statement:
“We have received a very small number of customer support questions about PS3s overheating or shutting down while playing L.A. Noire. At this time, Rockstar Games and Sony can confirm that neither L.A. Noire or firmware update 3.61 are causing the PS3 hardware to overheat. We are both committed to working hard to find solutions to this and any issues that may arise. If you are experiencing any issues with L.A. Noire or your PS3 hardware, please contact technical support using any of the means provided below:

I have been playing with no issues, however, while a screen is loading, I have noticed that I hear my disc, or HDD running more than usual. Anyone else have any issues with crashing or overheating?
So I never released this but I had it for a while now, actually since PAX East 2011. I was originally going to do an impressions but since the game is being released tomorrow and some reviews have started coming out I thought I would give you the voice cast right from the guys at RockStar Games.
This was actually pretty nice, it was just one other guy and I in the closed booth so we had a chance to really get a lot of time with the guys. We weren’t able to play the game but we were so close to all the action that we might as well have been.
This game makes me feel like I am watching an episode of Dragnet, not all of the corniness but the feel of being a cop back in the 1940′s, interrogating witnesses, putting clues together, fist fighting and the occasional car chases.
