He should have said "Change the face of adventure games"...btw, is LA Noire even considered an adventure game?

Optical_Matrix2723d ago

Games like LA Noire, Monkey Island etc are adventure games. Don't gas yourself

Kamikaze1352723d ago

Monkey Island, yeah...L.A. Noire, nope. But if lying to yourself makes you feel better, by all means, believe it.

Just imagine Metal Gear with L.A. Noire Facial Capture Technology...

They'd have to find people who look exactly like Snake and other characters in the MGS universe and forget any hope of a natural looking eye-tracking.

la niore is good game but its not amazing. the reviews are high 80's

More to games than a number. I will agree that it's not the best game this year or anything but its face capture technology will probably ruin some future games for me. At least until the tech becomes standard in video games.

I hope not. At least not in it's current stage. The technology isn't anything special in my opinion. It's just more advanced equipment that captures an object in real life and translate it into polygons and textures. How the character looks, what expression he puts on, and most importantly where his eyeballs are fixed, is at the mercy of the actor. I always thought that the eyeball movement in LA Noire was unnatural because the way his eyeballs interacts with his surroundings just seemed off. This is VERY hard to get right with this technology. If AI interaction is to be more advanced in the future, then facial animations need to be more dynamic, which facial capture technology is incapable of providing, at least just yet.
