Rockstar Games: Today, we present the highly-anticipated first trailer for L.A. Noire. Coming in 2011 to Xbox 360® and PlayStation®3.
I just want my fucking Rockstar North game! Nice trailer though TGSI
insane facial animations
Is it me or this is the best voice over work ever?
Yep, facial animations are the most detailed I've seen yet in any game.
*Link is broke*
well its not bloody spam:( http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Time to create a list of noire movies to watch, as a preparation for this game. @Jamegohanssj5, you mean Agent
And yet another game to look forward to in 2011. *looks at wallet* No complaining from you!
"Made using in game graphics" Very impressive for a multiplat. I bet this game is gonna own.
Please, team bondi, learn from 2K Czeck and their Mafia 2 mistakes.
The facial animations will be setting the bar. They said they've put a lot of money into the tech and you won't see hardly any game matching it for some time to come.
I agree, the facial expressions are the most realistic i've seen in a game; you can still tell it's a computer generated image though. Very impressive.
This looks quality! I want to see the gameplay.
2011 GOTY It captures the classic 50s movie felling well.
Facial animation looks better than that $137 million Final Fantasy: The Spirit Within movie.
Wow! Heavy Rain, Uncharted 2 and LA Noire. They both look soooo visually appealing! Imagine what the next generation of consoles will be able to do. Wow! Great stuff! Now please show us something, ANYTHING related to AGENT.
P.s. TGSI = THE GEEK SAID IT :)
it's going to be a great game
face animations are spot on
Agreed. I really hope this a great single player story. I'm dieing here for more.
Yeah the face animations are the best I've ever seen, my job dropped after seeing that black lady scream. This is looking great.
The facial animation is really good but I think Heavenly Sword is a bit better. King Bohan FTW!!
looks great! refreshing too, hopefully will have as much investigation as action looking good =) can't wait to see what Agent is like =O this but in 70's?! sweeet!
facial animations are awesome....but i cant stand eople saying this set's the bar because it doesn't kratos's last opus still sh*ts on this from heights yet Uncharted(see what i did there...lol) but for real if you've only got a 360 dont comment on graphic prowess and which devs are raising bars........
Just the other day as I was finishing up Red Dead Redemption, I thought about how cool it would be if they made a sandbox game with that level of depth (as opposed to GTA) but set in the Prohibition or Post War eras. I had completely forgotten about LA Noire. Sweet. I'd rather it take place in NYC or Chicago, but it'll do.
this will be the ground work for future Noire game from rockstar , just how GTA started .
i just hope they lessen the auto aim. one of the biggest problems i had with Red Dead was how easy it was due to the auto aim.
All you have to do is go into the options and set the aiming to expert for single player and (if you desire) multiplayer. I did that as soon as I started the game. Much more challenging and enjoyable imo.
don't i feel foolish. i only go into menus to fix camera and mouse sensitivity. good thing i enjoyed the game for its story and character development. other wise i may have started to trash the game because i never went into the option menus.
Definitely some top-notch in-engine non-gameplay scnes there. I like how they're focusing a lot on the characters in the cut scenes, but not likely you'll see this level of facial detail during gameplay. My primary problem is that I know this is all 360 capture, not PS3. At least until R* finally proves otherwise, because so far they just haven't been able to handle the PS3 at the same level as the 360 this generation.
which they were showing off not the 360 version since it was a ps3 exclusive before it became multi
Nope. That's definitely 360 version, stonecold3. It matches up to the quality of their other 360 videos almost perfectly and doesn't have any of the usual signs of being from their PS3 engine. Just because this was marketed in the very early days of development as a PS3 exclusive doesn't mean this didn't begin early development on both platforms. It's been two years, they had more than enough time to get both going in parallel, with the majority of work being on core design and functionality. And, R* is _known_ for utilizing the 360 as the main development platform and porting over to the PS3.
That looks pretty sick to be honest. Even the the atmosphere is thick with that noir feeling, it still looks more likable than mafia 2. Something about those cutscenes just felt annoying. But whatever, another game to look forward to next year. Can't wait.
But the lip-syncing.... OH my, if Heavy Rain could only utilized this tech. -End statement
Didn't watch the trailer yet, but I've read enough about it to know that this game is gonna kick ass!
i'm feeling the vibe of this game from the trailer
It kind of reminds me of LA Confidental. If they can pull that off in the game, I'm all for it. Too bad we don't see more games like these this generation. Instead we get the same titles over and over again.
but yeah, it does give off that feeling. No doubt, it must have had some inspiration for this game.
LA confidential is suck a kick ass movie. I'm going to watch it tonight in honor of this trailer's release! @ Eamon- time to change your taste in movies. LA confidential was up for several academy awards the year it was released including best picture. it may take some brainwaves to appreciate it but it's one of the best Noire movies ever made IMO
hmmm deeply underwhelmed looks over cooked.
would you rather play some Black Ops?
Too true man. Thanks for the laugh.
lol. rockstar is absolutely amazing. every thing they release is great. they make such great games its unbelievable. i cannot wait for this.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion. That said, what makes you feel that way? It looked pretty good to me. Not hating just curious. The voice acting and facial animations seem pretty high bar.
it looked like one long cutscene - very nice to look at but i didn't see any gameplay. show me a game and i'll be able to comment on it.
I am one of the few who wont ever buy anything activision published. My comment means it looks like they have spent 3years working on facial animation, decided they needed a game and stuck it on top of mafia 2. Ignore the facial animations and thats exactly what it looks like lol.
They were right about their facial animation tech.Its the best i have seen,definitely.
I disagree, even RDR is as good =| with exception of one guy, there isn't anything amazing Enslaved and Uncharted 2 have better facial animations , fine, they aren't not open world like this game, but I wouldn't say this is "the best ever" one of the best for sure though...
is up there as well
who ever says Uncharted 2 or HS have better facial animation, get of that weed man. Seriously. I love Uncharted 2 and it is second best, this game judging by this trailer takes the top spot. If you don't see that i recommend taking off those fanboy glasses.
Agree, Uncharted and Heavy Rain definitely win in the Graphics department, and while their facial animations are good, this game just pushes it to a whole new sense of believability. Too bad the GFX had to compromised for multiplat development tho.
Uncharted 2 has better graphics and amazing animations but LA Noire's facial animations beats Uncharted 2.
can visualb's comment be marked as trolling....what are people on here. I mean if his edit changed it then fair enough but it seems opinions arent even allowed when some mods are lurking... Im liking this trailer and i liked LA confidential. Its a fresh setting and the facial animation did look good. I wondering what the actual gameplay looks like
Wow, your disagree's getting reported as trolling. How sad it is you can't see true about it. In my eyes is GOW3 the best looking facial animation and then Uncharted 2, but this one look also very good.
Its good but alan wake, uncharted, and enslaved were on par with what i saw here. This game, while the setting is interesting, as of this trailer seems very bland and boring. That might change when i see gameplay but i think it will be gta 1950's. Gta series got stale last gen. Its the same game every time. I have played 7 yes seven gta games. If this has investigating, more heavy rain storytelling i might buy.
Now THAT is some serious lip sync technology!
I will say this is the first "multi-platform" title that the facial animation can compete with the ones in Heavenly Sword. However it looks like another GTA/Mafia game. The good lord knows we don't need another one of those type of games. Hopefully there is something new in it that seperates it from those titles, I don't want to judge the game before even I played it, so hopefully the game is release before the next olympics. Edit: All that is left is Agent and Max Payne 3, hopefully these titles are unveil sometime next year.
However, you are wrong. GTA/Mafia games make you the criminal living a criminal life. Here, you are a detective/private eye looking for the criminals. There's a difference and it should be different to play from the other side of the law.
we do need more of those . more than dont always try making you play a bandit , be it good hearted or evil or a plain shooter . From previous accounts , the game is "supposed" to be an open world investigation game . Think heavy rain or those traditional pc adventure games , in an open world . We never had anything like that yet .
Sure we have things like this before. Its basically just playing the good guy instead of the bad guy. It honestly is not that different in my eyes. There are plenty of investigation games out there. I agree with the OP about competing with Heavenly sword but I haven't played that one in a year or more so maybe it looks outdated now.
you never had an open world investigation game . I'm pretty sure of that . Alan wake was originally going to do it , but changed along the project . You had at best shooting games with without/cars as open world games . With that in mind i dont see how one can claim it's more of the same thing .
Voice acting looks beyond incredible
Voice acting sounds* beyond incredible! Hah yeah i agree, especially the guy with the sean Connery vibes.
cant wait...been waiting for ages
looks awesome to me, it'll be like playing an interactive version of l.a. confidential.
Looks mighty solid. Team Bondi looks like they may have pulled off a masterpiece. Can't wait for some gameplay!
