For those of you whom doesn’t know me, which is pretty much everybody; I am Moose. I have recently started a Let’s Play of the incredible game L.A. Noire for PS3. I have search in here to watch someone else play it, since I could not find my original copy. I could not find anyone and therefore I decided to just do it myself. Hopefully it will be just as fun.
Amid the post-war boom of Hollywood’s Golden Age, Cole Phelps is an LAPD detective thrown headfirst into a city drowning in its own success. Corruption is rampant, the drug trade is exploding, and murder rates are at an all-time high. In his fight to climb the ranks and do what’s right, Phelps must unravel the truth behind a string of arson attacks, racketeering conspiracies and brutal murders, battling the L.A. underworld and even members of his own department to uncover a secret that could shake the city to its rotten core.
Using groundbreaking new animation technology that captures every nuance of an actor’s facial performance in astonishing detail, L.A. Noire is a violent crime thriller that blends breathtaking action with true detective work to deliver an unprecedented interactive experience. Search for clues, chase down suspects and interrogate witnesses as you struggle to find the truth in a city where everyone has something to hide.
Developed by Team Bondi in conjunction with Rockstar Games, L.A. Noire is now available worldwide for the Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3.
The Patrol Desk
A section of the Los Angeles Police Department in L.A. Noire. The desk is mainly concerned with monitoring assigned geographical areas in Los Angeles.
When Cole Phelps joins the LAPD, he starts off as a police officer in this section as a beat cop, based at the Wilshire Police Station. This department is used as the game’s tutorial, and its missions will teach the player the game’s basics. Once Phelps completes all missions in this section, the LAPD will note that he has the ability to investigate crimes, and will promote him to Detective. Cole’s partner in this department is Officer Ralph Dunn.
The Traffic Desk
Department of the Los Angeles Police Department in L.A. Noire. Traffic is concerned with hit-and-runs, stolen vehicles, felony driving, illegal street racing, and collision reports involving serious injuries or fatalities where a crime may have been involved.
Cole Phelps is promoted to Detective of the Traffic desk from Patrol Officer after proving himself to be a good investigator. Cole’s partner in Traffic is Detective Stefan Bekowsky, out of the Central Police Station. The captain of the department is Gordon Leary.
The Homicide Desk
Concerned with the investigation of murders and deaths linked with foul play within the city of Los Angeles.
Cole works the desk from the Central Police Station. His partner in Homicide is veteran Detective Rusty Galloway. The captain of the department is James Donnelly.
Most of Cole’s cases in this department are concerned with the brutal and horrific murders committed on young women. At first, it is not known whether one or more killers are responsible, and it is often very different to chose the correct suspect when giving the choice of charging one of two, often given that the evidence points against both suspects and the player has to use his own initiative to come to a conclusion on what has happened. Each murder case seems to have a slight twist in the storyline and in some ways can be repetitive, as Rusty says “9/10 times, it’s always the husband” of the victim who committed the murder.
The Administrative Vice also known as Vice, Ad Vice, or Vice Narcotics Desk
The department of the Los Angeles Police Department in L.A. Noire. It deals with offenses involving prostitution, narcotics, lewdness, lasciviousness, and obscenity. LAPD Vice detectives plunge themselves down into the “seedy underbelly of L.A.”, overturning the most decrepit of stones to expose the city’s dregs, druggies, pimps, pushers, prostitutes, bootleggers, bookies, mob lords, thugs and gangsters. Working these cases will defy Phelps’ worst and lowest expectations of humanity.
Cole starts to work in this department following a harrowing stint investigating murders on the Homicide desk with Rusty Galloway, to find that things can indeed get even more vicious in Los Angeles. Cole is specially requested by Chief Detective of Vice, Roy Earle in a promotion from Homicide. Cole works the Vice desk at the Hollywood Police Station. His partner is Roy Earle, the senior Ad Vice detective. In Vice, Phelp’s has two commanding officers in the department, Captain Lazarus Cafarelli and Lieutenant Archie Colmyer. Vice is said to be the most glamorous of all the departments.
The Arson Desk
Arson is concerned with crimes of maliciously, voluntarily, and willfully setting fire to buildings, forest areas, other property of another, or of burning one’s own property for an improper purpose, such as to collect insurance. The Arson Desk also works side-by-side with the Los Angeles Fire Department and fire investigator Albert Lynch.
Cole starts work in the Arson desk after being demoted from the Vice department following the scandal attached to him. The Arson desk is located at Wilshire Police Station (Same division which Cole was working while he is in Patrol), and Cole’s partner is well-known Detective and loner, Herschel Biggs. The captain of the Arson Department is Lachlan McKelty.
A central character and the main protagonist of L.A. Noire. Phelps is a former member of the Marine Corps, who later returned from the war as a hero, joining the Los Angeles Police Department. Soon after, he quickly rose through the ranks and became a Detective.
He was born to a San Francisco family; both his father and grandfather had run a shipping company. He attended Stanford University. He married a woman named Marie and has two daughters with her.
Officer Ralph Dunn
Serves as Cole Phelps’ partner during the latter’s time on Patrol. While on Patrol, Phelps and Dunn respond to calls in patrol car 14 Adam.
Dunn starts working as a Police Officer in the LAPD at the same time as Phelps. Since he is new to the police force, Dunn has little to no experience in law enforcement.
A central character in L.A. Noire. Bekowsky is Cole Phelps’ partner while he is assigned to the Traffic desk, and later Rusty Galloway’s partner on the Homicide desk when Phelps is promoted to Vice.
