Unskippable: L.A. Noire

L.A. Noire

We cut out the item examinations and the game is 5 minutes long.

Watch Video

Actually there was an episode of the sarah connor chronicles where a terminator accidentally got sent back too far to the 20s.

Great video guys.
Steampunk Terminator would be pretty awesome. I'd say you two are having a good...

*puts on sunglasses*

...judgement day

I feel like I need to try out that charging gun trick with a rampaging rhino.

Hey, this is the internet, I'm sure Steampunk Terminator has allready happened somewhere...

I absolutely loved the Leno impression. Great video.

Leno impression=awesome.

Steampunk Terminator=awesomer.

Red Dead Redemption was actually mostly muppets, though.

It seems that one of the closest I've found is just a paintjob away.

If I had to choose between a 1920s gangster Leno and Coco I'd have a tough time.

Great, now I want a rhino stopping gun that halts rhinos and animals smaller than rhinos using its sheer beauty alone. Thanks, Graham and Paul, for once again filling my mind with awesome things that will never be.

Regarding the cutscene, I almost bought this game because of the face-cap alone. I wish the actual character models were a bit better; the contrast between the amount of detail between the two would cause a serious case of uncanny valley for one not more use to video games. Still, the emotions displayed on the characters' faces is nothing short of impressive.

Its John Marston not James Marston

"It's pronounced LAP'D"
and the games pronounced L.A Noireeeee!

But yes agreed, someone make steampunk Terminator, I'd pay good money to see that!

*writes in the big notebook of movie ideas that need to happen*

Steampunk Terminator.

Arnold Schwarzenegger... Bowler hat...

BTW, if you've finished this game, you notice how much detail was put into those first few minutes :D

Did Paul say James Marston, or am I hearing things? Because it's supposed to be John Marston, and then his son is Jack... No James.

Indeed. I had completely forgotten about this opening cutscene, so it was nice to see it again and "oh and ah" at all the little hints and foreshadowing in it.

I didn't know the Illuminati have their own building in LA.

Oh my god, we are having a TERRIBLE run of misquoting protagonists. We shouldn't need to fact-check these things!

Sorry all.

I think Paul was confusing him with James Marsters.

Sorry but you guys killed it when you said 1920s. Haven't even played the game but know the character is a WWII veteran....which would've made it a 20 year difference. Big difference in the course of LA history.

But the Leno impression was okay.

Heh heh "bigger casting couch".

Arnold in a bowler hat: a noble pursuit indeed.

You know if they did more work on fleshing out the world and some more gameplay besides the story, L.A. Noire could have been an awesome game. I mean I liked the "random" crimes and all but I would have liked to be able to have had free-play between cases. You know, like after case is over you can go plainclothes and drive around (or home), and maybe if they'd fleshed out more of the Phelps-SingerChickWho'sNameICan'tRemember story (like other than that it was implied and later revealed he was fucking her) then I might have thought that L.A. Noire was an awesome game.
Plus I would have liked to have seen more real random crimes while driving around like noticing a purse snatcher while driving and chasing him down (even hopping out of the car for the chase and tackle-capture/warning shot.
But alas, I'm Monday-Morning Quarterbacking... All in all I was disappointed with Noire's gameplay but it was a good story and it reminded me of Myst and some of the old Sierra games like Police Quest 1 2 and 3.

I had completely forgotten about Police Quest until right now... I might still have it laying around somewhere, I should see if I can get it to work, thank you!

On topic: Steampunk Terminator... yeah, I'd buy into that.

James Marston from Red Dead Redemption?

I'm so disappointed in the both of you.

Steampunk Terminator, Graham's Jay Leno impression, and the Rhino stopping Gun joke had me in tears. XD

BOOOOOOOOOO! >:(

im preaty sure someone made a steampunk terminator...
*checks google*
yup...

I forgot how every scene in the opening is actually germane to the story.

Also, there's not nearly enough chalkboards to call that learning. More like intensive studying at best.

You can't go wrong with Graham and Paul! :)

will elephants and lions be as intrigued by the gun as rhinos? that's important to know. gotta cover all your bases out in the wild :P

Garfy:
Actually there was an episode of the sarah connor chronicles where a terminator accidentally got sent back too far to the 20s.

There is still some good in this world when this is the first post to the thread. :) I hope they either know it or will now actually check that one out.

Sure, it's not Arnie (OR a bowler hat... I think), but that episode is awesome.

I like this guy's idea for a steampunk Terminator

Or would it be Bronze-Punk?

Did anyone notice how much the main character looks like Paul? Cos he really does :P

Now I REALLY want to get this game, just so Walter Bishop can sell me a home.

Actually I really might get this game once it's cheaper. Is it in the bargain bin yet? I can do basically just playing a movie, I mean I enjoyed Heavy Rain, I'd probably enjoy this.

Why is everyone talking about Steampunk Terminator? Steampunk is typically Victorian era stuff. But I agree that early 20th century terminator would be completely awesome.

Also, that Leno impersonation wasn't quite right. You didn't explain the joke afterward.
