Thank you, that's the one.

Wow I really like this cover -Looks Awesome- before, to me anyway, it seemed a little plain before, but this little touch of color with the picture in the back makes it look more dramatic.. I like it..

As far as The game, its looking stunning, it will be interesting to see if Rockstar does it again, with all the huge success from Red Dead -can they really do it again-

I don't know, but it sure does look good...

Oh look, it's just another Red/Orange and Blue contrast in the cover.

Guess it's time to add it to the list:


...Or perhaps I'm just trying too hard. Ah, well.


Dude, didn't mean it in a bad way. It's just the kind of thing you get on your mind after browsing TVTropes for a good, good while.


Actually, some of them are Orange, and some even get close to being red. In this case, it's dark blue and red.

There's a reason for this, though, and it's the contrasting colors that are visually appealing. It also fits L.A. Noire since, well, they're the goddamn police car lights.

About the game, well, I DO like the concept, but who knows if it'll end up being an actual detective game instead of GTAIV in the 40s.

Most of the ones you linked are yellow and blue, not red and blue ;)

OT: Looks awesome, cannot wait for this game.

Well, blue and orange/red are diametrically opposed on the color wheel. That's why it is often used as contrasted colors.
Surfaced  +   1300d ago
The blue/orange (or red) thing was what I noticed first.

They had something great with the original wallpaper we received a few weeks ago. Why did they have to make it busier with some random woman on the left and a crime scene on the right?

Sometimes I don't know who to hate. The marketing people who assume this stuff won't sell unless the cover is full of floating heads? Or the general public who don't see anything wrong with this and keep buying it?

I'm praying there's a limited edition without this garbage cover. Please, please, please.
Eternus  +   1300d ago
Oh no, the box art, now the entire game is ruined. Please cover it up? It's a cover lol. Get over it.
Eternus  +   1300d ago
@Surfaced. So what you're saying is the public should refuse to buy something BASED ON THE COVER. That's absurd. Ever heard the saying don't judge a book by its cover?
Surfaced  +   1300d ago
"don't judge a book by its cover"

Ironically that's EXACTLY what they're encouraging consumers to do.

take heavy rain for example.

American sees game with original European cover:
"lol what is this stupid shit? Some gay origami figure in the fuckin rain lolol what a piece of kiddy crap, where's my space marines"

American sees game with edited American cover:
"holy shit this is epic. So epic. Look at that girl's huge tits! Look at that guy with the gun! Oh and that other guy who looks mysterious and shady! OMG EPIC EPIC EPIC!!11"

I'm complaining because it's both insulting to us and the entire medium. I want to see us move beyond the shadows of hollywood blockbuster films. Games can be so much more if you just let them. We can start with how we advertise them and present them.

Maybe I'm "OCD" but I enjoy collecting games and I prefer that they are presentable and dignified. Don't share my sentiments? Then move on.

Ahhh screw you Neckbear^

Awesome cover is awesome. Nuff said.
Syaz1  +   1300d ago
would be nicer if they took that cover and made it black and white.
Convas  +   1300d ago
I find it AWESOME!
NickN4G  +   1300d ago
Only Rockstar have the talent to pull this off. This is what Heavy Rain should have been like.
Surfaced  +   1300d ago
Heavy Rain also had a terrible North American cover, if that's what you mean.
gillri  +   1300d ago
its Team Bondi
sickbird  +   1300d ago
I can dig it
gillri  +   1300d ago
lol PAL cover wins again
Eternus  +   1300d ago
@Surfaced. Way to make a generalized statement by insulting American gamers and assuming we all want some generic cover with boobs and guns.

And yes, you are OCD.
