First LA Noire DLC detailed in Best Buy flier

What with two full desks' worth of content cut from the initial release of L.A. Noire, there's no shortage of potential DLC to be released should consumers show interest in the title – which, with all the hype, seems likely. Now the name of the first DLC release has been inadvertently revealed via a retailer advert. A flier for Best Buy urges potential buyers to beat down the store's doors at the stroke of midnight to secure a copy of the upcoming Nicholson Electroplating Arson Case.

While no release date is given for the formidably-named new case – what happened to unassuming titles like “The Signal” or “The Pit?” – it'll be unlockable on release through codes given out to the first 16 buyers on each platform (everyone else just gets a free set of in-game duds for Phelps to don when they see fit). While Rockstar has mentioned that the content cut from the game revolved mainly around burglary and confidence-tricksters, it's not unimaginable that an arson case – featuring, obviously, the appropriate level of narrative tricks and turns – could feature under either of these categories.

    If you think BRINK is a game, then your drunk and disorderly lol L.A noire, like red dead redemption WILL in fact get the game of the year.

    Not all gamers are strictly into FPS, platforms and puzzles anymore BigKingBud. It used to be that way because that was what the average stereotypical gamer we were back in the old days. As games have now become adopted to winder audiences, the genres types will also increase. I would not call LA Noire an action game, so if you were looking for that, u are not gonna find it here. This game is more along the lines of Heavy Rain, or CSI , and I consider these to be more mystery/suspense. And Yes, I do love it too :)

    I see what BigKingBud is trying to say, but this has too many mechanics unlike heavy rain that only had the QTE right analog system

    Um....What? A game not for gamers? Um...what?? How is it...?? Whatever Im moving on. I LOVE this game! Uh-oh..guess that means i'm not a gamer anymore, since gamers only play games and this game isn't made for gamers....

    I realise that Team Bondi simply couldn't reasonably spread all of L.A. Noire's content across the two (three?) discs the game is spread across on the Xbox 360 version, but I really think that, at the very least, this DLC should be free. Also, BigKingBud: be quiet and get back into the cage.
