L.A. Noire was one of those games I was SO into before launch. During conventions I stood in line for (cumulative) hours just for a glance at behind-the-scenes screenings, not to mention I spent countless hours fascinating the lump of flesh between my ears re: the technology — MotionScan— that used to capture the actors’ fine faces. And while I didn’t buy L.A. Noire at launch, it was added to my arsenal shortly thereafter. I WAS GOING TO PLAY IT SO HARD! But, uh, today as I take a peek at my game shelf, there sits L.A. Noire. In the shrink wrap. Untouched.
But after seeing this video, I’m aaaaaaall about L.A. Noire again. And by “all about it” I mean as soon as I wrap Dead Rising 3 up I want to give it a shot. And by “give it a shot” I mean I’ll try to finish it up by the time inFAMOUS: Second Son launches because at that point my life is basically over. That gives me a solid month, right?
Seriously, though, this technology continues to blow my mind. I mean, look at those bloopers! The faces look flawless. Perhaps when we live in an era like we do this stuff isn’t considered “mind blowing” by most, but I still think it’s pretty freakin’ cool.
THOSE SNEEZES THO.
