Rockstar's L.A. Noire has our attention. In fact, few titles in 2011 excite us more.
And if you're equally excited, you'll want to pre-order one of the most promising games of the year. They've sent over the pre-order incentives for various retailers, so pay attention: putting down a deposit at Amazon.com nets you "The Broderick" Detective Suit, which "boosts your fist-fighting capabilities and resilience to damage." This could prove helpful when talking fails and the situation downgrades to fisticuffs. If you want to pre-order at Best Buy, you can get "The Sharpshooter" Detective Suit, which "enhances your aim with rifles and pistols." If you've never been that steady with a gun or you'd simply rather have the extra assistance, this one's for you.
GameStop will give you something different; "The Naked City" Vice Case, which is a bonus case for detective Cole Phelps to solve. You'll also get The Badge Pursuit Challenge; search around 1947 Los Angeles for 20 police badges. If you can nab 'em all, you'll receive the Button Man suit, which offers extra ammo for all weapons. Lastly, pre-ordering at Wal-Mart will get you "A Slip of the Tongue" Traffic Case, where "a seemingly run of the mill car theft ends up sparking an explosive investigation into the largest auto fraud racket the city has ever seen."
So, which incentive suits you best? You do have L.A. Noire on your purchase list, right?
