Default L.A. Noire

Just curious if anyone else is going to get this?

My mum (sigh) was kind enough to pre-book it for me.

I didn't even know it was coming out!!!


It seems really under the radar for a Rockstar release.

Especially considering how great Red Dead Redemption was.

My brother pre-ordered it, meaning I don't have to pay for it . I'm looking forward to it.

Looks great, but meh, there are so many other games I haven`t yet bought and E3 is just around the corner, so I am skipping it.

I typically loathe Rockstar's games, don't think this is going to impress me either.

I've had recurring nightmares
That I was loved for who I am
And missed the opportunity
To become a better man

Really?

Rockstar seem to be one the better developement teams out there, and typically put alot of effort into each of their games.

Whats not to like about GTA4 or Red Dead Redemption?

For me, they're too shallow. I need entertainment to have at least a small part, if but a flake, of depth to it. Rockstar's games are just so... Thick. Mind you, there are exceptions to this. Some games stand entirely on it's mechanics (like most RTS games) and needs no such enriching facets, but GTA is not one of them - when I'm given freedom in a sandbox I expect one of the options of gameplay to be not being a total douche bag.

But I digress. To me, their games are engineered for the lowest common denominator to the point of being insulting to the player's intelligence.

Game has been under the radar because you aren't playing as an Outlaw. Rockstar games also tend to generate a lot of free press due to their subject matter.

I got this game sitting on the bottem of my gamefly list atm. Like MetalHandkerchief I'm not normally a fan of games by Rockstar so I really couldn't care less about this title.

That is actually a very good point, most Rockstar games get prime time news coverage so that they can advertise lol.

By the looks of this one though they are moving away from the open area, sandbox style game, and seem to be going for a Heavy Rain type appraoch.

This is definately not a bad thing in my opinion.
