Los Angeles history wonks can plan to spend Memorial Day figuring out how to work an Xbox--Rockstar Games has finally announced May 17 as the release date for its 1940s crime-solving game LA Noire. A new trailer out today reveals a very creepy serial killer storyline (*you're the cop trying to catch him) and lots of new scenery, including city hall and the interior of a Boos Brothers Cafeteria (the first big cafeteria chain and a precursor to Clifton's). The game will be released on Xbox360 and PS3.
