GamerNode: L.A. Noire Preview

GamerNode's Mike Murphy writes: "The moment that made this abundantly clear during the screening of 'The Red Lipstick Murder' homicide case I witnessed was when protagonist Cole Phelps arrives at the scene of the crime.

I'm very excited for this. Somehow I feel this will end Rockstar's skid of overrated games and will usher in a new era of quality for the publisher. Let's hope Team Bondi has something more for us.

Only game that was overrated was GTA IV

GTA III was bi-winning
Vice was bi-winning
SA was bi-winning
Bully was fun as hell
Manhunt was good
Warriors was cool
Chinatown Wars was fantastic on DS and PSP
Libery and Vice City Stories was awesome.
Episodes was really good
RDRev was crappy
RDR was amazing

This is actually not a R* game at all but a Team Bondi game, and it's being a little overhyped by the media but in a good way, like Last Gaurdian is, as it's being kept very secretive but reaviling so little at a time that we are dying to play. I think it'll be one of the best games on this gen.
