    [INT!] Introduction
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    L.A. Noire is similar to Rockstar's other open-world games (such as Red Dead 
    Redemption or Grand Theft Auto), but it introduces some very unique differences
    that (in my opinion) completely set it apart from its predecessors. The first 
    and most obvious difference are the amazing facial animations used to bring the
    characters to life. This is the first game in which this new technology has 
    been used, and I can tell it will change the way games are experienced. The 
    second difference is the detective interview system; using the facial 
    animation technology, this is the first game that effectively employs a way to 
    tell if an interviewee is lying.
    
    This document is a walkthrough guide to beating the DLC Case "A Slip of the 
    Tongue" in L.A. Noire with a five-star rating; it is equally applicable to all 
    the major release versions of the DLC, which include the Playstation 3 and Xbox
    360 versions. In this guide I will provide you with a step-by-step guide to 
    finding all of the clues, what you need to do, and where you need to go. I also
    offer strategies and tactics for getting through certain action sequences of 
    the case, as well as give you all the answers for the interviews.
    
    Also included with this guide are links to video guides (all video guides were 
    made by me), which will help you to visually connect with the information in 
    this written guide. A good way to make the most out of this written guide and 
    the video guides is to have one browser tab open for the written guide and 
    another browser tab open for the selected video guide. Doing that will allow 
    you to keep the written guide open and then copy and paste the link to the 
    video guide in the second browser tab. If you happen to use two monitors with 
    your computer, you can also have two browser windows open on each monitor, 
    which will allow you to view both the written guide and the video guide at the 
    same time. Technology is great isn't it?
    
    Thank you for checking this guide out and I hope that it helps you.

    [STO!] Story Introduction
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    You are Cole Phelps, an up-and-coming police officer who is destined for great 
    things. The setting is the city of Los Angeles; the year is 1947, just a few 
    years after World War II. After serving as an officer in the war, Cole Phelps 
    is ready to get on with his life and leave his past behind him. Little does he 
    know, the future will put him in situations that bring his past right back to 
    the forefront, mixing his past life with his new life.
    
    Join with Phelps as he meets many new faces, most of which are friendly. Some 
    are not so friendly though; many more are several shades of gray. As you solve 
    cases and begin to gain an understanding of the Los Angeles area and its 
    various factions, you soon realize that everything is not as it seems. There 
    are conspiracies, intricate plots, and instances of corruption a plenty. Along 
    with the help of some colorful company, you will need to solve them all.
    
    The DLC Case "A Slip of the Tongue" takes place in the second half of Cole 
    Phelps' time at the Traffic desk.

    [Slip] DLC Case: A Slip of the Tongue (Traffic Case)
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    
    
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    [Pt.1] Part 1: Objectives 1, 2 & 3
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    -=- Obj 1: Investigate Stolen Vehicle Report
    
    1. Exit the police station and drive to the crime scene.
    
    -=- Obj 2: Apprehend fleeing suspect
    
    1. Right as you arrive, you see a suspect leaving in the stolen vehicle. A 
    vehicle chase scene starts.
    
    2. If you've played some of the cases later in the game (i.e. after the traffic
    cases), then you'll have an easy time with this chase. It's a typical chase 
    through the city streets; your partner will not fire at the suspect's tires 
    though, which means you'll have to disable the vehicle yourself. 
    
    3. The easiest way to disable the green car is to ram the engine as it makes a 
    turn. The green car isn't very sporty, so it takes wide turns; this gives you 
    the perfect opportunity to ram its engine from the side.
    
    -=- Obj 3: Question Cliff Harrison
    
    1. After the vehicle chase ends, you question Cliff.

    in front of you. After that, make your way into the warehouse and find some 
    cover to hide behind.
    
    3. There are many enemies inside the main room of the warehouse; be patient and
    pick your targets one at a time. These enemies act just like all of the other 
    enemies in the game, which means they will expose themselves and give you 
    plenty of opportunities to shoot them.
    
    4. After the ground level of the warehouse is cleared out, go upstairs with 
    your partner. There are a couple more enemies up here, who will rush behind
