The news-o-sphere, blog-o-sphere, Twitter, Facebook, etc. were lit ablaze last week when the latest L.A. Noire trailer, announced to be released Monday, was leaked. Fervor over the official date, plot line and the always stunning visual flair mounted. Albeit with just as much fervor, Rockstar Games and Team Bondi pulled the trailer before it had a chance to really explode upon the world. Needless to say, their PR strategy was dealt a blow.
For all those who have missed it, and all those who caught a glimpse but want to relive that magic moment without the particular feeling of having bitten into a forbidden fruit, Gamer Limit has the trailer and wants to know what you think.
Despite the general release date in the trailer, L.A. Noire will officially come to North American consoles on May 17, May 20 for Europe according to the Rockstar newswire. Some questions for you, dear readers:
- Is this already on your wishlist?
- With all the new technology being pumped into the game, do you think Rockstar and Bondi will hit a homerun out of the gate? Or, is it going to be a good first step, but the title won’t come into its own until perhaps a sequel? (Rockstar isn’t perfect, after all. Remember, the Red Dead franchise didn’t do well until Redemption.)
