L.A. Noire Coming to PC This Fall

Now PC players too can cringe as Cole Phelps shouts angrily at innocent children and grieving widows.

Ever since L.A. Noire crossed the barrier of retail existence on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, indignant PC players have shaken their fists angrily in the direction of Rockstar's offices, demanding that their chosen platform receive its own version of the publisher's critically acclaimed detective thriller.

I still kinda wish Cole was played by Jon Hamm.

Congratulations are in order to the PC elite, as your incessant letter-writing campaigns, steady stream of outraged story and forum comments, and repeated orderings of unwanted pizzas to Rockstar's offices have paid off. The publisher today announced that L.A. Noire will be headed PC way this fall in both boxed and digital formats.

No word yet on whether any of the DLC content released on consoles will be included with the package, or whether PC players will still have to download it separately, but I imagine we'll hear more about that closer to the game's release.

While this is great news for PC gaming fans, one cannot help but shudder at the prospect of what modders may do once they get their hands on the game's various mutilated, nude corpses. One can easily envision a Cole Phelps "naked dead lady" mod coming along at some juncture. Is there any concept more horrifying than that of Cole Phelps' shrill, accusatory voice shrieking humorlessly at you from the visage of a nude corpse covered in dirt and dried blood? Good luck getting that out of your head for the rest of the day.
