If you trade it in and the trade in value is $25, they'll give you a $25 gift card to Gamestop, or you can take cash, but if you take cash you'll take a hit in the value, like they'll give you $20. Basically they make an incentive to keep the story credit to buy another game from them.

Just finished it. Good game....I'm a sucker for Rockstar Games games though. Still not great at interrogating people. I'm too trusting...why would they lie to me? Lying is wrong. Freezing issue was bad. Disk 2 was the worst for that.Thought of installing it on the hard drive, but I was already pretty far in the game, so I dealt with it.

Question: Is the Newspaper storyline in real time with the game? At first I thought it was all stuff in the past but now I think its real time..

some of the stuff is in the past, it just like fills in the stuff you dont about. i think the last several pieces are more recent but still happened a bit in the past

LA Noire is worth $35 if you trade it in at EBGames during the month of July.

Pretty sure this is the highest it will ever be so now is the time.

EDIT: gone

Yes, the newspapers are parallel to the main plot line, and it all ties together once you get to the Arson desk. There are flashbacks between cases, though.

The flashbacks with the newspapers tie everything up really well, especially the last few flashbacks. The initial flashbacks make you think that the others may not like Cole and such cause he's an ass hole, but the last few flashbacks explain it's a bit deeper than that. That and the scene at the end of the credits makes that final connection.

It's probably been a month since I last played. I came to the conclusion that despite being an open world/free roam game, there is too little incentive (for me at least) to actually roam around outside of the story. One thing that I just thought of that is really missing is customizable outfits. Suits and fashion were such a big part in that era, and I just feel like there aren't enough options.

I beat it a little over a month ago.

Great game but I was disappointed in the storyline. The final mission and end scenes where kinda gay aside from getting to go ape **** with the shotty.

The whole plot twist with Phelps was very unexpected which can be good but I think it just took a bad turn(storyline wise) from there. I liked how the newspapers tied in, but war flashbacks seem pointles.
Spoil:
Also weren't Roy and a few others dirty? Yet nothing happened to them and they were there in the funeral scene.


Just my opinion though.


I traded it in right after I beat it. I didn't get a %100 because after doing about 5 street missions I stopped caring about them and only got like 75% of the cars. Traded it in for like 35$

Good game, right idea and a good direction, but like Assassin's Creed, just left a lot to be desired and got repetitive after about 10 minutes. If they make a 2nd one, I hope they build on what they have because it really is a good, unique game. Just needs...more.

So did anyone try that "Reefer Madness" DLC mission?

If so, how was it?

Just started playing this (for 360) and I have a question. I'm on disc 2 right now and I'm only done a couple of the street crimes that dispatch puts out. Once I'm done the main story can I go back and do them all?

Weird, I just started playing this game again recently too. I just moved on to disc 2 as well. Starting the Silk Stocking case tonight.

Glad to hear that I can go back and do some other things after the game is 'over'

Really good game I think. It's like a CSI game, but much better executed. Hope they make a sequel; even if it's different characters/different settings.

Was actually about to fire it up again right away too, bought the one with all the DLC for the 360 this time.

Figure it's been long enough that I won't remember exactly how everything plays out in each case.

a lot like Assassian's Creed 1 in that sense. I can see them making another and improving it. Was fun and different, but repetitive doesn't even start to describe it.
