I have often wondered if it was worth it. I"m sure it must be because I do order a fair amount of things on Amazon.

I never paid for it. I signed up for Amazon MOM (dads can sign up too). For every $25 in kid-related gear I spent, I got a free month of Prime (12 months max). I had to buy two car seats last November and got my free year.

Anyone else playing LA Noire? Just thought I would check in. KmD? Did you crack it open yet?

I just started it last night. It is a little slow, but the faces and voice acting are pretty impressive. It plays like the old Sega CD game of Sherlock Holmes. I am not very good at questioning people, and so far, it is pretty easy. I like it.

Just started playing it Monday night, so far so good. I abuse the hell out of my siren though. Power corrupts.... I'd make a poor police officer.

I kind of suck at the game. I wish it was a little deeper. I have a problem linking which evidence to quote when someone is lying. I mean, as far as I can tell, there are sometimes several good options, but then my cop doesn't actually speak what he should say!

I just pay attention to the eyes, if they start looking away or around, i use doubt, I only use lie when I found a piece of evidence that goes against what they just said. I use truth for all else. I'm not 100%... but good enough to get the proper answers....

Yeah, I can get the truths and doubts, but it is the lies that I am having trouble with. I feel like I have the evidence, but I feel like I have 3 pieces of evidence that show that the person is lying. However, when I pick one, it is sometimes wrong, even though I don't believe it should be.

Dude... did you follow my plan above and sign up for Amazon Mom? It's free, (though I probably will end up paying for Amazon Prime when my promo expires)

What I've ordered from JUST Amazon in June:

Mario Super Sluggers
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess
Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3
L.A. Noire
Wireless Keyboard for ATRIX
Easy Bake Oven
3 Air filters
Motorola Cable Modem (Damn you Comcast for raising the lease rates!)
Blu-ray player
Sucker Punch Blu-Ray

I think they need to comp me Amazon Prime on sheer principle....

Liking LA Noire more now. I did enjoy being a homicide detective more than I am enjoying being a vice cop. The mystery in the homicide section wasn't that great, though. I knew exactly what was going on pretty early. It was really nasty handling the dead bodies, though. I think this game was worth the purchase.

Jeez, you're flying along.... I'm still on the Traffic beat. (Though my TV bulb finally gave up the ghost last week, yet another online (non-Amazon) purchase)

It was a free month for buying the scale but the amazon mom stuff gave me the prime shipping benefits and cancelled out the movies.

Beat it. I admit, the longer the game went, the more "meh" I felt about it. It was worth the money, and I enjoyed it, but I am not really sad that it is over. I really felt the middle of the game was the best part. The story was pretty good, but it didn't really keep me anxiously awaiting the next cut scene.

All in all, I'm glad I played it.

Nij is playing it. He is better at it than I am. (Though I have given a few tips that helped.) I noticed it is at Target this week for 37 dollars. It must not be selling that well for all of these deals.
