Rockstar has apparently decided that the best way to release new information on its upcoming detective game L.A. Noire is by releasing old trailers and just adding pop-ups to them. Just like the pop-up ads you’re familiar with, these pop-ups completely disrupt the flow of the trailer, and are kind of annoying. Unlike the pop-ups your familiar with – where you’ve apparently won the lotto every time you load a webpage – these pop-ups at least add some information you might actually be interested in.
Some of them tell you about the real-world influences on the game, others offer information about gameplay, and some are just interesting historical tidbits, like the average salary of an LAPD officer in 1947. Okay, most of them are more interesting than that, but you get the point. You can catch the new pop-up-filled trailer after the jump.
