After watching this video the game looks really boring. Gamefly sent it today so we'll see.

It's a sad testament to the times that we are living in when being a good cop seems boring to alot of people.

It's not being a good cop that looks boring, John McClain is a good cop and his adventures are always entertaining. It's the flipping through notebooks and talking to everyone in sight for most of the game that looks boring, but I could be wrong. I'll give it a chance.

I guess the better way of putting it is that, playing a close to real-life good cop can really seem boring because the public is used to the "Die-Hard" cop that kills 400 people in 1 hour.

To each his own.
I applaud Rock Star for doing a game like this knowing full well that being able to kill everything is what sells these days, they went out and made a game where you are a by the book cop.

The real concern with this game is the replay value. That's what was great about the GTA games; you could replay a mission and figure out more fun ways to accomplish your goals. I'm not sure this game will be able to do that.

60 plus cases right out of the box.
40 optional cases on the squad car radio.

Rock Star is promising double digit cases via DLC.

Giantbomb says the PS3 doesn't suffer from framerate drop-outs like the 360 version does. PS3 also comes with free DLC and has the benefit of being on one disc.

They gave it 5/5 stars.

Quote:
L.A. Noire is a bold release, because it defies the expectations not just for the type of game Rockstar usually releases, but also for the type of game that receives this degree of care and proficiency in its execution. The world already has enough open-world action games, but a game which marries that open world to such a methodical style of gameplay, with a budget this big, is a rare thing indeed.

They loved it, like everyone else.

buzd tells me he isn't buying it cause he would feel guilty wasting gaming time not playing Rift. I think it's time we take that game away from him. He needs an intervention.

If I wanted to solve cases the right way, I would join the police force.

I'm playing a video game in order to escape reality. Also, to shoot people in the face.

I don't want to have to do real life tasks in a video game. Being a "play by the rules good cop" falls under the "workout and eat breakfast in GTA: San Andreas" category. Sure it's close to real life, but that doesn't translate to video game fun.

I'm not spending 60 bucks to be Nancy Drew.
