For those who have been around gaming for a few decades, they’ll know of the ultimate female protagonist, Lara Croft.

Movies have been made of her, even emulating the over-emphasized body proportions via the very busty and pouty Angelina Jolie, who really made Lara stand out from the crowd of other female protagonist, both on screen and in-game.

Lara Croft, the game character had a ‘certain something’ about her. There was this big, busty, almost gravity defying physique and proportions, but the games also had a certain cartoonish style about them in almost all of the games that have been released on just about all gaming platforms.

L.A. Noire will undoubtedly transform the albeit small detective/crime thriller genre in gaming.

Team Bondi and Rockstar Games are successfully producing what will become the epitome of our [console] generation’s technology, and will set the precedent for many others to follow.

The story follows Captain Smiley, who you play as, and his attached sidekick, Star – who is literally just a star. Star is a loud mouth who is rather abrasive and doesn’t seem to like Captain Smiley very much.

You start with your own comic called ‘The adventures of Captain Smiley’ and it is quickly revealed that your arch nemesis is a seemingly ‘cool’ guy named ‘Brad’.

The first chapter revolves around combating Brad and his robotic henchwomen (and his ‘Bradcopter’ equipped with ‘Brad Missiles’).

After defeating Brad your comic is cancelled due to low readership and you are forced to take any work you can get. This leads your assistant, Gerta, to find you work in other comics to make enough money to re-launch your own comic.
