STN Writes: Rockstar’s released some brand new screens for the detective thriller L.A. Noire. The screens show off the latest character of the stories main narrative called Mickey Cohen.
Yeah same here its looking very good.
This game has some stunning facial animations! It's expensive technology but it would be awesome if more games would use it.
They need uncharted body animation tech..
Some asshole with no life is disagreeing with all of our comments. Prick
This game looks like a breath of fresh air. Really looking forward to it.
Pre-ordered, and basically getting it for free. Awesome. Can't wait, one my most anticipated games, of the year, fer sure. And, as said above, looks to be a breath of fresh air. Much needed.
Mickey Cohen?? AWESOME!!! Mickey Cohen was a real Mob boss who was also used as a character in James Ellroy's LA quartet of noir fiction. One of the characters in those screens also looks like Johnny Stompanato who was another real life mob guy who was used by Ellroy in his fiction. This game is basically turning out to be an Ellroy fan's wet dream and I need to go clean my pin-striped pants.
As if it wasn't painfully clear already. I STRONGLY suggest everyone read James Ellroy's LA quartet as a primer for this game. Mickey Cohen, Johnny Stomp and the Black Dahlia are major players in these books and I'm sure reading them in Ellroy's stories will give a better appreciation of them in the game. The books in Ellroy's LA quartet are, in order. The black Dahlia The big nowhere LA confidential White Jazz.
Not to mention that the movie adaptation of L.A. Confidential, while deviating from the book quite a bit, was one Hell of a flick in it's own right.
Do YOU like creepy, over-expressive people? Then I've got the game for you.
