>You’re full of shit, Jacob. The truth is you hated that bitch. You followed her and dragged her into the car and then took her out to the Moors. She woke up and you smashed her face in with a socket wrench. And then you stomped her. You stomped her because she’s a drunken whore and she treated you like shit. You stomped her for all the years you had to take it. You stomped her because you are such a weak fucking sister, Jacob, and you wanted to erase all memory of it. Go on. Try to deny it.

Freeze! Put your fat cocks where I can see them!
I love the exaggerated faces everyone in this game makes.
Its like the devs were really that proud over their technology.
Only if you like the atmosphere and like film noir, most gameplay elements are really lacking, you can just feel that they focused mostly on the investigations and questioning people, fighting, driving, shooting feels unfinished also one thing that pisses me off is that the driving camera isn't centered and the car shifts a little to the right which feels weird as shit.
This is definitely an adventure game before anything else, to the point where all driving and combat is actually optional.
It's worth checking out still, even if you're only vaguely interested in noir stories.
>I like your ass
YOU'RE LYING MORGAN
>Hell no, I uh..uh...uh like your ass
"Don't tell you me you actually jerk off, Phelps?"
>HAIIII I love to jerk off
I remember hearing that there was a lot of conflict among staff behind the scenes, especially with the director. He was apparently a huge prick to work with. Not sure if it ran into financial troubles in addition to that.
That ending was the gayest shit.
In fact, the entire overarching plot was atrocious.
>mfw I thought Cole lied about having a wife and was a closet homo because we never see his family until that one time
they were bought out by some other company. they are (or more likely were) working on another game called whore of the orient but that will probably never see the light of day because of obviously the name and content, it apparently already pissed off a dozen other people and some chinese australian mayor over use of the word 'orient'
Why are people so fucking thin skinned these days?
>working on another game called whore of the orient
>already pissed off a dozen other people and some chinese australian mayor over use of the word 'orient'
Fine. Change it to Whore of Asia
its too fucking casual to be a real detective game, its a fun "experience" if u just wanna walk through it,see the cases and shit. if you want a real detective game play sherlock holmes or some shit
The retarded part was the bartender, and the fact that pretty much everyone involved in the big mystery somehow knows each other, the other shit was actually pretty good for a noir story.
ah fuck me I really screwed that one up
yeah good karma MacGrath was a good guy
also Kuo did nothing wrong
Cole Phelps is a fuck-up
the cases by themselves are pretty good, it's that the in-between and the conclusions are pretty bad, and Cole turns really unlikeable halfway through and never recovers
I had more fun
playing as the other guyhonestly
aw yes detective I just finished that game, I loved it.
That was really weird.
Or maybe it was just the game telling you that Cole family was almost nonexistent to him.
I've never felt so uncomfortable playing a game, a game where the protagonist leaves his family for a lady and uses her to contact based Kelso because he doesn't have the balls, that's pretty noir.
this looks like a nice place to ask is blues and bullets any fun?
Yes, the game is really easy, but it worths the experience.
Only played the first episode but I'd say I'm intrigued and want to play the rest of it, it's rough around the edges and some things feel shitty but all together it's awesome, I mean you get to investigate Al Capone's grand daughters kidnapping and there actually pretty good action scenes.
Why not do it with a new detective? Kind of like True Detective. For example, people complained about all the limits the game gave you as well as the fact that it wasn't as exciting playing as a boy scout cop, why not play a corrupt private eye,
It would be cool to play as a P.I. that can do illegal GTA-tier shit, while also physically interrogating people to get information out of them, as you climb the latter, you get new clients.
For another sequel, you could probably have it take place in a peaceful suburban community, with sick underbelly, a la Blue Velvet.
Yes, it feels weird on color, also faces look more realistic.
i don't think the title was the problem, the problem was that L.A. Noire got meh reviews after tons of money and years in development and the leaked WotO trailer looked like literally the same game but in Asia
cole cheating was just typical noir plot device, but moreso it made for an all too convenient way to execute his fall from grace (another noire trope) especially since she was german, they kinda went over the top with the whole thing, it was pretty hamfisted.
On sale it's only a couple of dollars usually, so even if you don't like it it's not like you broke the bank on something you don't like.
My one complaint about this game is that fucking stupid social club drm bullshit.
Thankfully if you turn your wifi off while starting the game up it seems to bypass it, but that didn't work for GTA4 so I had to refund that.
Because fuck those suspect as fuck websites with the "fix" for that.
>Put all their money into mocap technology to capture unique visual facial queues on when someone is lying
>Completely skim out on good voice acting so you know when someone is lying due to their character's voice going complete "I'M GUILTY, GARSH'
Yeah I just blocked LANLauncher and LANPatcher in the game's install folder with windows firewall and that worked fine. When I first installed the game, it tried to make me download some social club patch, which failed to install, and thus the game refused to start until I blocked the launcher from connecting to the internet. I'm glad it was such an easy fix, though. Godawful fucking service.
>>I like your ass
>YOU'RE LYING MORGAN
Every time I hear someone say they like something I think of this exchange and it's hard to keep a straight face.
Also game quality aside I honestly wouldn't mind if more exaggerated genre games like this came out if they had the potential to be as batshit camp at times. It boarders on parody without being too hamfisted.
