Thoughts on L.A. Noire

I know everyone has probably written something about this game, but they didn't write mine.

I picked up the game a couple of days ago, just to try it out. I've seen good reviews all around for L.A. Noire. Getting ratings as high as 9.5. This game deserves a high rating, no doubt about it. However, I don't think it should have gotten as high as it did. In my opinion, this game is a solid 8.5.

*Possible Spoilers*

L.A. Noire is based on a newly discovered detective, Cole Phelps. He's come home from WWII and is working as a detective for the LAPD. There are a couple of levels you make it to in the game. You go from a refusal policeman, Patrol, to Traffic, onto Homocide, Ad Vice, and finally Arson.

You work on cases trying to solve a murder, whilst getting achievement/trophies. If you're into that kind of stuff. Getting achievements should be easy if you do everything you're suppose to. You also have to keep in mind the amount of damage you're inflicting on your character, the vehicle, and also the city.

You get a maximum of five stars for correctly convicting a suspect and keeping the damage to a minimum. There are cases with multiple suspects. So if you convict the wrong suspect, you automatically get a maximum of three stars.

As you progress through the game, it gets harder. No different than any other game. Throughout the whole game, you'll be interrogating people. The only way to get the questions right is to rely on facial expressions. This is hard for some people. It's pretty difficult to explain how to do this.

Overall, the game is very fun and interesting. Especially if you like challenging games, with good stories, and meant for smart people. No offense to my intellectually challenged audience. So if I had to rare it, I'd give it an 8.5, like I said before. Only reason I lowered its score from 9.5 is because it glitches for me sometimes when I want to get an achievement. For instance, I had every vehicle unlocked, except one. Eventually I found the car, and I didn't get the achievement. I got the notification that showed me I had 100% of whiles found. (I don't remember the exact number, but you get the idea.) I was all pissed and junk because I didn't get the achievement, so I stopped playing for a long time. When I got back on the game, about a month later, I happen to find the car again. This time when I got into the car, I got the achievement.

If you have any questions, leave them in the comments section below. I'll get to them when I can.

And if you liked this, well, like it. :p

Thanks. :)

Jeremy Scott Adidas: Bones

Now these aren't new sneakers, but by god their good. These are the 'Bones' by Jeremy Scott. These sneakers may strike the average person as weird. Not to the fashion gurus though. These sneakers seem to be inspired by The Flinstones. Due to the animal (cheetah) print and the bones. I'll be giving you the run-down on these sneakers.

As you can see, Bones isn't just the name of the sneaker, but it's actually a feature that has been incorporated into the shoe itself. They're made out of hard plastic, and tend to clank a bit. That's the only downside to that. However, if you're the type to actually tie your shoes, you won't be having that problem. The bones are a milk white color.
The rim of the sneaker is vulcanized. When you have vulcanized material, it just means that it was converted into a tougher material from basics such as rubber, or other polyesters, in a chemical process. So if you're the type to sit with the soles of your feet facing each other, you don't need to worry about damaging the sides/rim as much.

The shoes material is mostly made out of leather. The white is made out of leather. The teal blue on the sneaker is leather as well. However, it's a harder material, so it might crease there a bit more than normal. The cheetah print is made out of a smooth, hard fabric.

These sneakers are priced at $249.99 in most stores they're at. These sneakers cannot be found in most stores though. You can have luck on websites such as eBay, or SoleSupremacy, but finding your size is always the problem, isn't it?

For a 360 view of the sneakers, visit this site and look through the images.

Thanks for reading, and don't forget to comment if you have any questions, or input, on these sneakers.
