New trailers: L.A. Noire and Honest Hearts

New trailers are out today for “L.A. Noire” and “Honest Hearts,” the next DLC episode for Fallout: New Vegas.

I’m not supposed to embed trailers for Mature-rated games without age gates, so links to follow.

L.A. Noire, from Rockstar Games and Team Bondi, is scheduled to be released May 16 for PlayStation 3 and XBox 360. If you’re reading this, you probably already know the game tells the story of an LAPD detective in 1947 Los Angeles and features highly-touted facial animations. The idea is to let players figure out if suspects and witnesses are telling the truth, and this writer looks forward to seeing how well it works in practice.

“Honest Hearts” places Fallout: New Vegas players in a post-apocalyptic Zion Canyon, Utah. I have to admit that I’ve barely made a dent in New Vegas, but Utah is an amazingly beautiful state. The DLC is set for a May 17 release for PC, PlayStation 3* and XBox 360 players.

*This assumes PlayStation Network is back online by then. Sony has not announced a date as of this posting.
