The ending. Also the fact that it tells you when you got a question wrong straight away, I didn't like that, it took the mystery out of the cases. I'd know straight away if I was getting a bad result so I'd just restart the case.
>>257478963 Apparently that's something to do with the face capture technology, I've been told it starts acting screwy at high framerates.
It's crazy how good those faces are though, it literally feels like you're looking at another person, all the tiny muscle movements can be seen in the game. It was just pretty average for a game though. I think it was mostly just a tech demo for R*
>>257480010 >>257479901 >too much of a video game >artificial gameplay >forced gameplay This made me so angry I started screaming and swinging my office chair around above my head knocking all of my action figured won.
I'm shaking with anger so much I can barely type. Just fuck you. FUCK you. You're the reason video games are shit now >why couldn't it be moree sc nxdsadcimemaic
>>257480335 Fuck off, the good gameplay was in solving the cases. If they gutted the overworld and expanded on the clue system as well as having cases have multiple endings, then it would have been fantastic.
>>257480335 Yes, that's exactly what I said. I want all video games to be dumbed down. It's not that a detective game should have actual detective work, clue-finding, problem solving, red harrings, or a comprehensible story. No, what it needs is corridor shooting that doesn't mean shit and an empty overworld that you can literally just skip driving through 90% of it. Those resources were totally worthwhile.
>>257477903 I hated how the story didn't really pick up until the end, and if you didn't find those newspapers through out the game, you missed out on a lot of the story. That fucking song at the title screen. I'm not the only one that would wait to actually start the game, am I?
>>257477903 VERY IMPORTANT Actor told to "look like you're lying" Case ratings rather than encouraging living with the choices you'd made The choices you made didn't make any difference Player able to savescum
LESS IMPORTANT little reason to explore the overworld the inclusion of a "skip to destination" button Low res facial textures Dead eyes
-Shootouts and arcade sequences really broke the immersion, should have been less frequent and a little bit more realistic. -Ending felt rushed, the actual mission should have been less Rambo, more Chinatown. -Interrogation system was a bit obtuse and should have offered you more tools in your arsenal, such as good cop/bad cop tactics, bluffing and the like. -30fps or not, the PC port is sloppy.
That game had so much potential but it just farted itself into the trash. I don't know why they had to streamline the cases so hard, who the fuck thought it would be a good idea to have the controller go berzerk to find clues?
Imagine if there was a way that that stupid shit was taken out, and every interrogation gave you the option to be either Good Cop or Bad Cop instead of the bi-polar autist Cole Phelps was. I wish I had a dollar for every time I chose doubt and he flipped a shit.
>>257483487 If I remember right, if he flips his shit and spergs out when you pick doubt, it means you were wrong.
>>257483864 If this is true, they should have left it as accuse. Because that's what he does when you "doubt", he makes an accusation. And if you don't have the proof behind it he sounds like a crazy person.
>>257484024 Yeah, there's a video somewhere and in one case, you flip out and accuse this did of killing his wife and he tells you he wasn't even there and phelps says something along the line of "I guess I was wrong"
he became a detective... fuck that shit, I wanna work a beat. Piddly shit, motherfucking event traffic, god damned motherfucking hella as welfare checks on the elderly, nigga shit gets real when you're following up on that missing lawnmower in the suburbs.
Ain't nobody need no supercop bullshit. Lace dem boots, shine dat nameplate, go be the face of the peace...
>>257484692 Rockstar didn't make it, they just published it. And I think funded it a little? It was made by Team Bondi, who self destructed pretty soon after LA Noire came out. Apparently the head guy was an asshole.
>"Cole, how could you cheat on your wife like that, you're being demoted!" >shit missions the remainder of the game, most of which you don't even get to play as Cole. >Cole dies offscreen, and his eulogy is read by the jackass that narked on him
>>257483864 I dont think so, there was that one case where you interrogate a teenage girl in the hospital, and I remember choosing doubt in attempt to be nice to the girl, and Cole started yelling at her.
>>257484024 Nah, you can choose doubt and still get a new answer of out people.
>>257485328 The longer the game went on, the less I liked Cole. I thought that was kind of the point, though. By the time you realize what kind of man Cole really is, you get to play as Kelso. I liked Kelso better.
>>257485328 Not him, but war is a different world entirely. I saw the whole game as him trying to put the war behind him while it slowly and suddenly creeps back into his life. The whole affair thing just made him seem more human to me
>>257485328 I think they were trying to make a tragic hero that made serious mistakes. Issue is they have him act stonewall and stiff the whole time so he just comes off as a sociopath when he makes a mistake.
>>257486459 what was really bad was it was telling 5 stories that would have been great separately with enough time. instead it was just mash together almost bipolar like, with nothing going together till the very end and by then it was pointless.
>>257487452 Not the same guy, but it's a bit of both. Courtney proposed the idea, though Cole was the one who kept getting awards for things that he either didn't really do, or was done by someone else, and while he was given the opportunity to refuse, he took it anyways, despite being fully aware of how it would look to everyone else.
>>257487215 Pretty much this, I don't know why people are demotizing the game for having a character that isn't perfect. As the game grows you begin to learn that Cole is trying to redeem himself, and does it by pushing his family out of the way so he can focus on his cases.
>>257487753 Only the concept. I was so fucking hyped for this game you have no fucking idea, then it came out and I played it and the more I got into it the more bored I got. Most of the cases were dogshit and the interviewing mechanic was dumb as shit, the script is almost the same unless its lie where Phelps just goes batshit insane and starts accusing you of the holocaust.
