I need 14 minutes of your time. I'd like just 14 minutes to show you how L.A. Noire, an extraordinary and unconventional interactive detective thriller, plays.

Give me that time and you'll see more than just a trailer's worth of this week's big, new Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 release. You'll see what it's like to play L.A. Noire. You'll see, with minimal spoilers (trust me; tiny, tiny spoilers), what it's like to catch shady people in their lies. You'll see what it's like to play a game that might look, at a glance like Grand Theft Auto in the 40s, but is really, wonderfully, nothing like it.

This is L.A. Noire, from Rockstar Games and Team Bondi. We'll have more coverage of the game throughout the week.
