Back in November, we helped to show off a great trailer and impressive screenshots for a game that’s been catching eyes everywhere: L.A. Noire.
The game comes from Australian developer Team Bondi and publisher Rockstar Games, who are responsible for a couple of titles you may have heard of like Grand Theft Auto and Red Dead Redemption. L.A.
