Screens from L.A. Noire Crime Desk #1 of 5: Homicide

Posted on January 26 2011, 1:17pm | Author: R* Q | Filed Under: Games

As Detective Cole Phelps in L.A. Noire, you'll rise through the ranks of the LAPD, along the way facing cases across five different department crime desks. One of the most brutal and harrowing will be that of Homicide.

Los Angeles is being terrorized with a series of horrific murders perpetrated on young women. As these cases get reported, it will be up to you to bring the guilty to justice. Is this the work of a lone killer or sick copycats? Some glimpses of Phelps’ pursuit of the killer or killers were seen in Monday's big Official Trailer #2 – and today, we present the below brand new screens taken from murders on that desk.

Tomorrow, look for the launch of the new official L.A. Noire website with a bit more on the Homicide crime desk including high-res versions of these and other new crime scene screens too grisly for the Rockstar Newswire.

From "The Red Lipstick Murder". An eagle’s eye for detail. The smallest and most insignificant seeming item could be the entire key to the case. 

Another unfortunate victim.  Phelps examines the corpse for telling signs of trauma. 

A rogue’s gallery of suspects. Only the most savvy and unrelenting interrogation will yield who’s hiding a truth amongst men such as this.

A psychopathic killer leaves a message on the victim. 

Another victim falls prey in a string of brutal killings around Los Angeles.

                          @ Captain SAm

                          I am not going to buy a Console only for one or 2 games that i buy pro year. Im not a big player, but i love sand box, and i love Rockstar games. I also understad why they are doing this, and i agree that they release pc games a time after console, but come on guys, they have all ready won a lot, the DLC´s are out what it gives still exclusivity to consoles... i think its time to pc players to enjoy it. AND HOPE EVERYONE READS... I AM AGAINST PIRACY BECOUSE ITS THE REASON WHY I CAN´T PLAY RDR ON MY PC... PLEASE STOP PIRACY, ROCKSTAR DESERVES THE MONEY BECOUSE THE GONE AMONGST PLAYING...THEY DO ART!!!

                            @Bflame7 :: I don't think it is (not as good as the 1st picture, at least). But that's IMHO.

                              Great new LA Noire website. I've read all the new pieces of information, and I'm very excited for the upcoming feature sites like the world of la in 1940, the music, and especially the gameplay, hopefully we will see some gameplay videos!
                              Thank you R*

                                      I just wanted to thank R* for amazing games. I am playing R* games since GTA III and i love them all. I am sure that this game will be another of my favorites. And all of my favorite games are from R*.

                                        @CaptainSam101 The delay for the PC might could be about piracy issues and it could be that R* is very busy right now with projects like LA Noire and other games to focus on any PC releases. Remember how many people complained about the many problems of the PC release of GTA IV? There were many problems with the PC version and i think R* doesn't want to make the same mistakes again with their other games coming to PC. There are many people who pirate console games. It's not hard either to pirate GTA IV on PC regardless of all the DRM software. I believe these people who pirate R* work aren't really fans and are probably the people who think Saints Row 2 is way better than GTA4. Many people returned or sold back GTA4 to the games stores so even though GTA4 broke some sales records i don't think everyone was satisfied with GTA4. Some people call GTA4 'Boring' but i think it's because these are the younger gamers and us older players see GTA4 as 'Breathtaking'. Now i think a lot of young gamers are going to find LA Noire 'Boring' since they can't appreciate things like details and the story of the game like older gamer can. There are young ones that can appreciate these types of things but it's rare.

                                          this game is looking more and more like a movie, and a movie i can't wait to see and be a part of...only thing i'm worried about is the replay-ability factor, games in general are unlike books or movies IMO, once you seen it once you don't often feel the urge to re-read or re-watch, but games you feel like replaying, especially games which feature different elements such as multiplayer, free roam and side quests... i just hope LA Noire doesn't disappoint on this front.

                                          Graphically the more I see of this game, the better it looks. Can't wait to be a detective.

                                          PS. rockstar include cops n crooks in next GTA ! :D best multiplayer game mode ever.
