Long-Delayed L.A. Noire Gets Trailer, Spring 2011 Release 54

It's been years since the announcement of L.A. Noire, an expansive murder mystery game set in 1940s Los Angeles. After several lengthy delays, Rockstar Games has now posted a trailer and confirmed that the game will release in Spring of 2011. One of the game's major undertakings is to step up the realism of the voice acting and the way characters' faces and bodies are animated, "allowing players to analyze every subtle nuance of an actor's performance in order to get to the truth." The trailer shows in-game footage (though not actual gameplay), and while it's always a good idea to take such displays with a grain of salt, the facial expressions do look pretty realistic.

    The faces do look real, but I am going to have to agree with the uncanny valley crowd here and say that they look creepy.....maybe it looks better on an hd tv than it does in the trailer, but damn those things were creepy.

    Offtopic, but yeah :-/ Can't access the page too. I guess this is as good as anywhere to comment on it right now.

    I nearly ended up working for Team Bondi about 4 years ago. At the time, they had already been working for a few years, and didn't even have a working codebase they could show me, just lots of vague designs and promises. I wrote the place and the project off as just a way of milking money from investors, and went on my way to work elsewhere.
    Now if Rockstar have pushed them into making an actual game, based on the huge amount of background research they were talking about when I saw them, I could have been very wrong to write them off. I'd like to be proven wrong, if they've done what they were talking about back then, then it'll be the kind of game that shows that video games can indeed compete with other forms of art.
    I just hope they haven't churned out a quick shooter to try and prove they weren't another Duke Nukem Forever team.

    Well I couldn't play GTA:IV on my machine even on lowest settings, despite it meeting the requirements, so I wouldn't be in a hurry to buy another Rockstar game for PC anyway.

Machines certainly can solve problems, store information, correlate, and play games -- but not with pleasure. -- Leo Rosten
