LA Noire is set to blow our minds on May 17 in more ways then one. For gamers who rage at the thought of having to endure tough missions that they can never seem to beat, the devs at Rockstar have heard your prayers (and the sound of your controllers smashing against the wall).

At the Tribeca Film Festival, Rockstar showed off the game's skip feature, which allows you to completely bypass any action scene. After two or three attemps at trying to complete the same mission to no avail, the game prompts you with choosing to skip the action and pick up the story from that point on. Rockstar art director Rob Nelson explained that "You can skip those action elements and still experience the bulk of the narrative." Sounds like a nice feature, but we're gonna kick it old school when we play it—actually beating everything the game throws at us. What is this, Nintendogs? [via Game Informer]
