Metal Gear Solid creator Hideo Kojima says that the MotionScan performance capture technology used in LA Noire is "a huge element that from now on will change the direction of adventure games" - but says he will not be using it in his next game
I could change the face of it?
changed the faces of it yea
Direction, not face.
I understand your humor.
He should have said "Change the face of adventure games"...btw, is LA Noire even considered an adventure game?
Games like LA Noire, Monkey Island etc are adventure games. Don't gas yourself
Monkey Island, yeah...L.A. Noire, nope. But if lying to yourself makes you feel better, by all means, believe it.
la noire isn't an adventure game lol kojima is talking smack.......AGAIN! lol love this guy
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.
After playing LA Noire I don't see anything revolutionary in it. Yes the facial animations where fine but like I said before the eyes is what makes a character come to life and the eyes of LA Noire characters where dead which was a major flaw in my eyes.
I agree. Im tired of Kojima talking crap all the time.
He's not talking crap. He's complimenting L.A. Noire. I think it is coming out in a few days for Japan. But you can tell that he is very excited to play.
LA Noire's ending left me in shambles. I wanted everyone to live happily ever-after, and for Cole to re-unite with his family. <-- None of this.
. Once again a gaming insider wanting to make games more story/movie like...NO THANKS. I know it's fun to make movies and pretend they are video games BUT games have always been interactive and fun. Games like L.A Noire and Heavy Rain should be left on the DS, PSP, Cellphones and tablets. Someone send this guy a copy of Bioshock 1...he seems to have forgotten how a video game tells a story. I am Andrew Ryan and I am here to ask you a question: Is a man not entitled to the sweat of his brow? No, says the man in Washington; it belongs to the poor. No, says the man in the Vatican; it belongs to God. No, says the man in Moscow; it belongs to everyone. I rejected those answers. Instead, I chose something different. I chose the impossible. I chose... Rapture. A city where the artist would not fear the censor. Where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality. Where the great would not be constrained by the small. And with the sweat of your brow, Rapture can become your city as well. --Andrew Ryan Well said Andrew...a true modern day masterpiece!!!
Just wondering, but do you agree with everything that Ryan said? """"Where the scientist would not be bound by petty morality""" That saying makes it sound as if all the experiments that Josef Mengele performed on the Jews were all ok. I hope to God that you don't feel that way.
In order to use that style of facial motion cap. You will not be able to do much full body mo cap. Thats why ND decided not to use it in Uncharted
but but it wasn't even that amazing, average at best, but after you beat it there is nothing that keeps you wanting more....actually as soon as i hit vice i found the game really boring till the conclusion of the plot line
stfu and make ZOE3, only then you may talk crap again.
i think it can improve the "open-world" games direction. the animation makes it more captivating and alive.
No..just..no. Adventure is Zelda or Uncharted...
