The lights are on
Rockstar Games is known for its ambitious projects, and L.A. Noire proves that the company’s reputation is safe. While the rumblings about the game have been heard for years, our world exclusive cover story is the only place you’ll be able to get concrete information on the gritty crime epic. Over the course of our 10-page feature we look at the game’s astonishing reconstruction of 1947 Los Angeles and learn how the team took on such a massive undertaking. We also talk to the team to see L.A. Noire’s groundbreaking facial-animation system in action, and learn how it might change the way we look at games from now on.
Some of the other features in our March issue include a look at the status of some of our favorite old franchises, previews of some of the Independent Games Festival nominees, and a guide for parents interested in parental controls. We also grill Platinum Games’ director Hideki Kamiya on Bayonetta, dig into the legal battle over Duke Nukem, and check out some of the hottest tech around. If you’ve been wondering why Polyphony Digital seems to operate without deadlines, Sony’s head of internal development, Shuhei Yoshida, explains why the company cuts the Gran Turismo 5 developer so much slack.
Sequels to Mass Effect, BioShock, and Battlefield: Bad Company get reviewed in the March issue of Game Informer Magazine, along with Dante’s Inferno, Aliens vs. Predator and many more.
Subscribers will be getting the March issue soon, and it will be hitting newsstands shortly afterward.

Just to reiterate, it's NOT a Ps3 exclusive anymore. It's multiplatform.
Can't say much... just looking forward to this one!!!
That is a truly awesome wraparound cover. And I'll be all over this game; I'm a huge noir fan.
that cover is so cool
You're gonna have the review of Battlefield: Bad Company 2?! I want this issue so much!
this is awsome its gona be the game that fills the new gap made from godfathers absence plus that 1960s crime game highst
hmm i dont know about this. i do have hopes because it is rockstar games afterall.
Rockstar is one of the most reliable developers so I have my expectations SKY HIGH.
And also Bioshock 2 review and Battlefield Bad Co. 2 review! Can't wait!
I fully support everything Rockstar has being doing lately. This AND Read Dead Redemption. Finally a development studio that's making games for an adult audience.
About time this game has been whispered in back halls for years now.
Wow this like it will be really intellectual; )
The only thing I want to know is if L.A. Noire is still a PS3 exclusive.
I think the cove looks great!
This better not be PS3 Only.
COOL! I love it when two or more pictures go Hand-in-hand! Back and front
This is ps3 exclusive right?
It might be all the motivation i need to finally go and buy one
the main character looks sketchy as ***. wtf? make him look like, idunno, a classic 1920's detective maybe? He looks like Sean Penn's younger retarded inbred basement child.
Some asplanation for GT5 delays?
Aaagh, what do I care? I'll be buying it no matter when it comes out.
@matt bertz yes la noire >then halo reach
