For my 30th birthday last week, I picked up L.A. Noire for the PS3. So far I am really enjoying the vibe and feel of doing detective work in the 1940’s. In fact, the other night I solved a case that involved a man trying to leave his wife and unite with his lover in Washington state. The man and a friend of his set up an elaborate plot that included: a slaughtered pig, a bloody car, and a faked death. Being the excellent gumshoe that I am, I was able to quickly link all the dots together and bust the perp. Arriving back at the station at the end of the case, the division chief congratulated my partner and I for a job well done. Well done indeed.
