Valve applauds LA Noire facial animation

Develop Online - Valve, one of the pioneering games studios in the field of facial animation, has hailed the “incredible high-fidelity” of the tech used in LA Noire.

“It’s impressive technically, for sure,” said Jason Mitchell, a 3D graphics hardware developer at Valve.

“And I think it’s an important inflection point in the continuum of ever-increasing fidelity in game characters.”

It's great that Team Bondi didn't restrict themselves and use the tech's full potential + Blu Ray on console.

Agreed, now we're just waiting to see if it's got the gameplay to back it up ...

I think part of the promise of that technology, is stealing some of the entertainment value given by TV/Movies

Meaning, even if the gameplay sucks, the game could still be amazing because of the depth of their reactions and facial expressions.

I don't think its possible for LA Noire to fail unless there's major issues with crashing/bugs, because at the very worst, you'll be playing a story driven game with great animations and story-lines followed up by chase scenes and shootouts.

That doesn't seem that hard to fuck up with Rockstar at your back.

Yes, this technology is the future.
