"GAME is unfortunately closing down unless it can find a buyer quickly. The banks bailed out GAME before Christmas but poor sales mean that GAME is in even more trouble than ever before. Certain publishers have refused GAME pre orders or not allowed GAME to have any stock of their games to sell. You may as well grab some cheap games while you still can.
GAME is selling off many of its new and pre owned games at bargain prices. Here are a few key deals that stick out as being worthy of your ..."
"Last time I talked about game-to-game continuity of choices, something that is already being implemented in games today. This time I am going to tackle something that game developers are anticipating for the future and what this technology might mean for gaming. The technology I am referring to is emotion-reading games."
"While players really only got a brief introduction to the character, Jack Kelso is definitely ready to become the leading man in L.A Noire. The emotionally charged ending of the original has put him front and center, and with such a rich backstory, he can definitely carry the weight of the franchise."
"PushStartSelect : "Rockstar recently stated to not “rule out the possibility of an L.A. Noire 2.” With the good sales and positive reviews why not make a second one? You can read their full comments below, but what do we want to see in an L.A. Noire 2? Glad you asked why don’t you find out now.""
Due to Team Bondi shutting their studio down, hopes of another game set in the LA Noire universe seem slim at best. However, when asked about the future of the title, Rockstar thinks fans should remain hopeful and that another LA Noire title is not out of the realm of possibility.
"Fans have been going crazy trying to dissect and analyze the debut trailer of Grand Theft Auto V for any information about the game, but they may not have to wait much longer for some concrete revelations. In the latest edition of Rockstar Games’ “Asked and Answered” segment featured on its website, the studio has claimed that new details regarding the title is just “a few months’ time” away."
"Ask yourself, if you will; what is a game?
I suppose you could see the question from any number of angles, any number of interpretations. You could view it mechanically – a typical game involves an actor, maybe several, multiple mechanics, parameters. You could take each individual aspect of a game and put a magnifying glass to it. Or you could take it at its most literal definition; something to be played."
"I began playing a game yesterday, a game lauded by many, so I decided that I should have a go at it as well: LA Noire. Now, truth be told, open world games have stopped captivating my interest these last few years (yes, I’m counting Skyrim as well). The problem is that this kind of game tends to sacrifice storytelling for freedom. After playing New Vegas a while back, I said to myself that I’d rather play a completely linear story that at least has more depth than 50 square miles that are as ..."

This article is a follow up to two separate articles: Can I Really Be a Social Gamer? and Help! My Wife Stole My Xbox! As the family meets in the middle of their hobbies over the medium of video games, Ryan Johnson of GoozerNation starts to see not only how his family is evolving, but how society sees gaming as a whole.

Ryan recently had situations fall as to where his traditionally non-gamer wife jumped at trying Batman: Arkham City and is now hooked on L.A. Noire. What is it about these games that draws a non-gamer who traditionally avoids the controller like the plague to get so in-depth as to have a desire to complete a game? Better yet, what should Ryan have in store for her once she's done so he doesn't lose a gamer partner? Read in to see his opinions, and please drop s...
"Printing, distributing and advertising are all things that the big disc-based games have built into their price structure that actually have nothing to do with the game. When a game is digital only, it can be cheaper, eliminating those steps. They can also afford to be smaller: I know that I think twice about a game when it begins its retail life at $20. Even though it is possible for a developer to make a quality title and release it cheaply, it just seems to devalue the inner content when i..."
"We here at the Department of Electronic Entertainment possess vast pools of intel about the gaming industry. We deal with situations every day that would leave most Americans cowering in terror. But some secrets don’t require a team of espionage specialists; some secrets about the gaming industry are widely understood by long-time gamers yet unknown by most of the population. While the following revelations may seem obvious to most gamers, the financial security of the industry is based ..."

Either way, this was an absolutely fantastic year to be a gamer.""

"Are you looking to buy a new Xbox at one of the big sales this weekend? What about a recent AAA game at half price, or maybe an old hit that you never got around to. We looked through all of the retailers and online sales to find the best Xbox deals for Black Friday and are here with our recommendations on how you should spend your Xbucks this week."
With fall releases in full swing the crew at Goozernation looks back to their ever growing backlog which includes games such as Red Dead Redemption, Fallout New Vegas, Goldeneye 007, Enslaved, Borderlands, Bulletstorm, LA Noire, and Metal Gear Solid 4. The bigger question here is how can a gamer find anytime to play this stuff and how did these games end up in the backlog?
"If you still have yet to experience the unique blend of breathtaking action and true detective work that is L.A. Noire on your console of choice, Rockstar Games and Team Bondi have announced that L.A. Noire: The Complete Edition is coming to the PlayStation 3 computer and Xbox 360 consoles on November 15, 2011 in North America and November 18, 2011 internationally."
Year after year some publishers produce the same games. Sometimes if gamers are lucky they seen a new IP. Sometimes the new IPs sell well for example Bulletstorm, Dead Island, and LA Noire. But other games like Majin and Blur don't sell well at all. Is it because the gaming industry only wants the new Call of Duty, Gears of War, and Madden?
Gamefly is having an under $20 used game blowout. The big question is what games should gamers pick up now? Some of the better games include Duke Nukem Forever for $10, Brink for $10, Epic Mickey for $12.99, and Red Faction Armageddon for $12.99. La Noire for $19.99 and Shadows of the Damned for $17.99 are too good to pass up on. The biggest question is when will gamers have time to play all these games?
"Before we begin there are two things worthy of note that happened last week. Steve Jobs passed away and Team Bondi have closed their doors for good. Steve Jobs leaves behind him the sort of legacy that most of us will only ever dream about and the rest of us will spend time complaining about. The fact of the matter is, whether you love or hate Apple, his work has had an undeniable influence on the modern world and, on topic, mobile gaming, a fact that seems undeniable when Angry Birds, availa..."
"After months of drama, accusations, leaked documents and media attention, Team Bondi is finally closing its doors. The game development company has filed papers with the Australian Securities and Investments Administration and will be closing for good. This is the end of a long drama that has been playing out since May when Team Bondi’s LA Noire was released. Check out the news below."
"What makes the PC version the “Complete Edition”? Well, it includes the full game as well as an access code for all downloadable content previously released for the console editions. The DLC includes the “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case, “Reefer Madness” Vice case, “The Consul’s Car” Traffic case, “The Naked City” Vice case and “A Slip of the Tongue” Traffic case."
"After accusations of unfair payment practices, never-ending mandatory overtime and deliberately excluding swathes of developers from LA Noire's game credits, developer Team Bondi seems to be reaping what it sowed. Whether or not any of these problems actually caused the company's current dire financial situation may never be known, but this we do know: Team Bondi has gone into administration. If you enjoyed the team's previous work, you may be waiting a long time for another example of it."
Daav from NoobFeed.com rounds up another batch of game ideas after a 'very productive period of film watching'. At least there's a justification for eating chips and sitting on your ass. Five more films get transitioned and compared with games like Zelda, L.A. Noire, Brink, Assassin's Creed and even Leisure Suit Larry.
LA Noire is a character study that focuses on Cole Phelps' history and the complexities of his personality. There is something intrinsic to the video game medium which makes LA Noire a ridiculous examination of an unhinged, possibly psychopathic, police officer looking to rehabilitate himself. It's also an exposé of how strict realism can't yet be achieved in video games.
"In the wake of L.A. Noire’s last announced downloadable content, Reefer Madness, being released yesterday, Rockstar stated that it doesn’t believe that’s the end of it. Though Rockstar is keeping a lid on what it has got coming up, whatever it is will be sure to please fans of the game."
"LA Noire got a new DLC pack entitled “Reefer Madness” for the Vice Desk today. The case sees Cole tracking down and stopping a narcotics ring. Rockstar Games has released a character dossier and a few new screens of Juan Garcia Cruz, one of the narcotics smugglers you will encounter during the course of the DLC. Check out the screens below."
"So put on that oh so cool detective hat because it's time to smoke out some reefer heads. Players will take the reigns of Detective Cole Phelps once again, this time behind the desk of the vice squad as they try to unravel a drug ring that is starting to smell a little funny. Phelps and his partner Roy Earle find themselves hitting this case after getting in a shootout with a local drug dealer."
"After several team members who worked on LA Noire complained about 'sweat shop' like conditions working on the game, Brendan Mcnamara of Team Bondi has hit back at these claims by basically dismissing them and saying that all of his team knew what they were getting into when they signed up."
"Much has been written about the long development cycles on games such as Duke Nukem Forever, Too Human, or Prey, but the story behind L.A. Noire's rocky road to release stands out within Australia's small, tightly-knit development community. Team Bondi's crime drama is not just the biggest game development project ever undertaken in Australia, it also served as the first-ever project for many of the creative forces behind L.A. Noire. It's perhaps the combination of all these factors that has ..."
"With Rockstar Games releasing the new L.A. Noire: Nicholson Electroplating Disaster dlc this week, Planet Xbox 360 felt that it was a good time for L.A. Noire players to undergo some serious introspection. Have you been playing too much L.A. Noire? Maybe you carry around your own little notebook, or over-examine every day objects by rotating them right and left. If you made your daughter cry on Father’s Day after examining her card and proclaiming that it was “irrelevant to the case,” then it..."
"With some very impressive early stats on display at Chart-Track, and a number of earlier reports detailing its successes in the market, L.A. Noire has hit a sales figure of 4 million units sold worldwide since its May 17th release, coming up second only to Lego Pirates of the Caribbean in terms of top UK sales. Note that the figure describes units shipped, and does not specifically mention how many of those units have actually been purchased by consumers from retailers."
GamersGameplay: Controversy to praise, chaos to orderly conduct, Rockstar Games is one of the companies that have evolved into a renowned publisher in the video game industry. Over the past few years their presence in the industry has changed in a good way. Countless great titles lie under their belt, however one franchise by far is the most common one associated with their name.
"This is the most interesting DLC case released so far. I appreciate that it doesn’t start how almost every case does, with something happening, and Cole getting the call to check out the crime scene. It feels very organic the way it starts, and that’s a nice change of pace. Driving into the blast zone was honestly pretty shocking. There’s people running away, and cars crashing in front of you. Characters constantly comment on the devastation. I was baffled when I had to start investigating th..."
L.A. Noire can be described with two words, innovative and unique. Taking place in 1940’s Los Angeles, you play LAPD officer Cole Phelps. Phelps is a former military serviceman who served his time in World War II. Starting off as a patrolman, you take on cases and move through the ranks to traffic detective, homicide, vice, and arson.
"Today, Rockstar Games announced that it is extending the duration of the discount on the L.A. Noire Rockstar Pass. The Pass was set to expire today, however, thanks to Rockstar, gamers will have two more weeks to snag it at the low price of $9.99 on PlayStation Network and 800 Microsoft Points on Xbox Live. It is now set to expire on the release date for the “Nicholson Electroplating” Arson case: June 21st."
"It's only been a matter of weeks and already I'm missing the smell of young women's corpses and the clutter of syringe filled back alleys. It's a strange feeling attempting to wean of crime and corruption, but L.A. Noire offered up a very addictive approach and solving mysteries and serving justice. Those who feel the streets aren't clean enough just yet, however, can clock in once again with the titles' first downloadable case; The Naked City."
L.A. Noire is going to one of those games other developers try to emulate. Rockstar has taken gaming in a different collection with L.A. Noire. The combination of an open ended world paying homage to GTA IV meets detective work is a welcome change to the industry standard. The biggest question, is will gamers see a sequel?
LA Noire is a new kind of game that attempts to bring investigation, interrogation, and good old fashioned police action together to form a realistic experience. The year is 1947, you jump into the shoes of Cole Phelps, a WWII veteran who wants to put the war behind him and start a new life. Phelps joins the LAPD and begins as a patrolman; it is your job to help him move up the ranks and uncover the seedy underground of 1940’s Los Angeles.
"In the past, storytelling in video games was a minor thing, high scores were the target. This changed with the roleplaying game and with the invention of bigger hard drives to hold more game information. Now the role of storytelling is going through another renaissance, the actions of the character have dynamic consequences on the story and on future games in some cases."
One man can make all the difference - if that one man means Cole Phelps and that difference being made is in 1940's Los Angeles. At its heart, LA Noir is a tale about one man standing up to corruption, while working to clean up the city streets. And the streets need a lot of cleaning. Robberies, shootings, theft, and, of course, murder, are just some of the crimes Phelps is looking to stop.
While the GoozTube vidcast may lie dormant for the time being, Mike D has started a new video series called GoozTube review.
Here you will see the first 10 minutes (give or take) of a particular game; some old, some new, some borrowed, and some even on Blu-ray. GoozerNation's Mike D will add his own commentary about the feel of the game, graphics, game play, and anything else that may come to mind during the first bit of game play.
In this episode, we look at Rockstar Games' L.A. Noire...
In this episode, the crew talks about Portal 2 co-op, L.A. Noire (spoilers), Infamous 2, Red Faction: Armageddon, Dungeons & Dragons: Daggerdale, The Avatar Legends (XBL Indie), Bulletstorm, NBA Jam, The Kinect, PSN, and plenty of other lovely topics. Plus, they have a special giveaway to celebrate Memorial Day.
"Let me begin by saying L.A Noire is a very different experience from what everyone’s used to when it comes to games that are similar to the Grand Theft Auto series. This game doesn’t only enter unvisited territory but also does a good job at it. From shoot outs, to playing private eye or chasing people on foot and on wheels. L.A Noire has a lot going for it but is it enough for the people who aren’t used to this flavour of tea? One thing we can be sure is naked women, size 8 shoes and a hell ..."
"It’s 1947 and Cole Phelps has returned from World War II as a decorated hero, and now he is attempting to navigate the ranks of the L.A.P.D. Cole must discover the truth behind murders, illegal drug trades, racketeering conspiracies, and arson attacks as he tries to clean up the streets of a quickly growing city. As the hero of the game you learn that Cole isn’t the squeaky clean hero that he’s portrayed in the beginning of the game. The police and politicians are as corrupt as the criminal e..."
L.A. Noire, Rockstar Games’s latest release, with developer Team Bondi at the helm, aims to shift paradigms and create new gameplay trends. In recent months, the developer has created a huge hype about the game and after a few minutes driving through the streets of an almost exact rendition of Los Angeles, you'll understand why. L.A. Noire is unlike anything you've ever played.
Rockstar's latest epic brings 1940's LA to life. Gone is the emphasis on free exploration, replaced instead with solid scripts and classic film noire action. Filled with some small graphics glitches and with limited replay value, this is still a modern classic.
"Did you pre-order L.A Noire from Amazon? Well if so, by now you should have your $15 promotional credit available to use, and what better way to spend it than by putting it towards the second biggest game to release this month, The Witcher 2? Sure this is only relevant to PC gamers, but those gamers will be interested to know that Amazon have already discounted the retail version of the game from $49.99 to $44.99 and even better, the digital version to just $39.99. Slap on your $15 credit and..."
"Everyone is a track star. Their shape and size doesn't matter because everyone has more stamina than a camel, with the speed of a cheetah. Maybe they're trying to teach the lesson of not judging a book by its cover, but the inhabitants of L.A. Noire are ridiculously agile."
I’ve watched countless film noir and neo-noir movies while pursing my degree in video production (which I just finished this last week!) and now I’m going to put my knowledge to the test as I play through the opening hours of LA Noire tonight at midnight. In addition, I’ll be sharing my expertise on the subject of noir, detective stories, and video game criticism in general, as I pop down a couple of Bawls energy drinks and play until the sun comes up.
"Looking over Rockstar’s back catalog, it’s interesting to note how far they’ve come since Grand Theft Auto III first became the poster child for violent video games. Rockstar’s detractors have often argued that the company’s titles lack real substance and are merely threadbare plots stitched together as an excuse to include wanton violence and sexual mischief. If you look hard enough, a bit of brilliance shines through the blood-spattered windshield. With each game they release, Rockstar evol..."
COD Black Ops DLC Escalation has hit the 360. But will it be enough to keep gamers interested in the series? This summer is shaping up to be a good year for games and Black Ops is going to have to compete with a lot of games this summer including Duke Nukem Forever, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Brink, as well as several AAA titles.
In this episode, Kush discusses the PSN outage with a calm that makes Gandhi look like Bill O'Reilly and Kari admits she alone brought the service down. -- Topics of discussion include Sony, PSN, and all that crap, the next Wii (again), Mortal Kombat, Portal 2, Sword & Sworcery, L.A. Noire, Rio, Game of Thrones, and plenty more.
One thing you have to say for the guys at Team Boindi, and Rockstar is that they spare no expense on their projects, with L.A. Noire having the highest number of actual actors, many of them well known in many movies that grace our screens, playing just simple NPC roles within the gameworld.
Most developers have actors play the part of major characters only, perhaps one or two even, not 20 or more.
This will be a monumental game to both view and play.
"A new month is upon us and we here at PlanetXbox are taking a look at some of the new releases in store for Xbox 360 players this month. From Driving games, to FPS', and open world sandbox games, May will have something for everyone. Let's start with the Disc based games you'll be spending time on:"
"Heavy Rain solves this dilemma by using button prompts (aka quick-time events, but don't let Cage find you saying that), creating highly dramatic, dynamic moments while still allowing for exploration (and more traditional point-and-click gameplay) in quieter moments. While Cage's system isn't flawless, the use of button prompts allows you to more seamlessly transfer the "point-and-click" experience to consoles (which often suffer due to the controller versus mouse setup), as well as creating ..."
"Great titles heading to release that are worthy of Game of the Year candidacy deserve a second look. Right now one of the games that has been recognized but not given the spotlight it should be is LA Noire. Once again Rockstar has a sleeper hit in the making and we should all be on the lookout for it."
"Spring is now upon us and there’s fortunately more to look forward to than just flowers and the chirping of birds; the next few months are jam-packed with great games. We here at PlanetXbox360 are hoping to make life a bit easier for you by narrowing down the must-play games to a manageable five. The following titles are the ones worth looking out for over the next few months."
What is more frustrating then on the disc dlc? Multiple pre-order bonuses from different stores. Rockstar is showing their true colors by pitting store against store and giving gamers the run around once again with the upcoming release of L.A. Noire. This sort of mentality only hurts the consumer in the long run. Goozernation has a full list of the pre-order bonuses and wants to know what other gamers think about Rockstar's continued use of this this trend

"L.A. Noire Trailer 3 sheds more light on Phelps’ experiences rising through the ranks of the LAPD. Upon landing at the more glamorous Vice desk, he discovers illegal gambling, corruption within the force, as well as investigating a shipment of government-issued morphine killing junkies even as it causes problems for the town’s most notorious mobsters. Created entirely from in-game footage, L.A. Noire will release on Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 on May 17 in the US, May 20 in Europe and Australia."
"L.A. Noire will undoubtedly transform the albeit small detective/crime thriller genre in gaming.
Team Bondi and Rockstar Games are successfully producing what will become the epitome of our [console] generation’s technology, and will set the precedent for many others to follow.
While last week’s theme was modern, we’re going back in time again, but at the same time we’re going forward, confusing – yes? SO read on and let’s see what we can uncover together.
Ladies and gentlemen, I pre..."
"The revolutionary detective title L.A. Noire by Rockstar Games and Australia’s own Team Bondi is now only eight weeks away.
With expectations running high and hype slowly escalating, you’re going to find yourself more and more interested in the fascinating world of crime drama.
Last week, I presented to you The Untouchables, which was very in-keeping with the time frame. While post-World War I (and II) America is a cultural explosion and the setting for much classic crime drama, this we..."
Rockstar has created some of the most memorable moments in the gaming landscape. They've given us characters that we care about and settings that truly feel alive. We had an opportunity to see an entire mission from the game recently. Check out the full story to see what we thought. Cheers
"I loved Red Dead Redemption as much as the next guy, but the prospect of playing another Rockstar-made open world title so soon is exhausting. Everything I’d seen of L.A. Noire suggested it would toss detective work into the formula but still offer the same driving and shooting elements the developer is known for. If you’ve been expecting the same, stop right there. L.A. Noire isn’t Grand Theft Auto with bits of crime solving—it’s a crime-solving adventure game with bits of Grand Theft Auto."
Probably one of the most miss-represented games by the gaming media. Not a shooter or a GTA clone as some seem to think, but a game of skill, intellect and deception.
OXCGN's doing a 9 week update on the game as it approaches release, and looking at the era and what brought the Noire style into the game through movies, books, small screen etc.
This week they unlock some great in-game info, as well as deal with the movie "The Untouchables' from 1987. Definitely worth the time to slip ove...
"The company has just revealed new details of its next blockbuster, L.A. Noire. The game takes place in Los Angeles in the year 1947. The game was built thinking carefully about all the features of that era, with the streets, cars and all the characters’ costumes are from the '40s era."
"In the Vice desk case “The Naked City” (available as a pre-order bonus through GameStop in the U.S. and Canada, and through Game in the UK), Cole Phelps investigates the apparent suicide of a stunning fashion model. When the young beauty is tragically found naked in her bathroom amidst a pool of pills, the most likely conclusion is that she’s taken her own life. But what about those bruises? And her taste for luxury beyond her means? It soon becomes apparent that this young..."

"L.A Noire is Rockstars next big offering and one of its major features is MotionScan. MotionScan replicates facial movements perfectly into facial animations which, aside from making the game prettier, adds to the gameplay in interesting ways. L.A Noire is a game based in 1947 and you play Cole Phelps who works for the LAPD which means you will spend your time solving crimes ranging from theft to murder. So how does MotionScan work and how does it make L.A Noire unique? Well read on as I try ..."
"The Rockstar Games blog posted an incredible video piece on Team Bondi's MotionScan technology which works from 360 degrees to capture 100 percent of the actors' facial movements from all angles.
Have a look, it is easy to spot the difference to traditional animation. It seems almost too real, causing a reverse uncanny valley since the faces look so real versus the environments."
"Critical Gamer writes: The first L.A. Noire trailer has finally shown its face and gives us plenty of good cop, bad cop detective work in Rockstar’s latest and relatively unknown project.
The game, set in a 1940s re-created Los Angeles, gives players the challenge of solving murders, old school style. It certainly looks to take a slightly less glamorous approach than CSI Miami."
"With E3 2010 almost here gamers everywhere will be hoping to hear new titles announced, along with new details on already announced upcoming games.
But what of those games previously announced where we have seen very little, if any, real gameplay footage, have few details on final retail release dates, or even know if they are really still coming? E3 sees studios and publishers (sometimes even those not at E3) provide new details of their upcoming games.
Here is my Top 10 list of games..."
"It looks like there may be some issues with Rockstar Games’ highly anticipated and very ambitious LA Noire for the PS3 and Xbox 360. In particular it appears the Xbox 360 version is the one with issues. While many have questioned the DVD media format on the 360 since 2006, it seems the antiquated format is causing enough problems to be frustrating the team at Team Bondi, the developer behind LA Noire."
"Whoa, whoa, whoa… what’s this? One of the contestants on CBS’s “Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains” is in an upcoming video game being overseen by the team that made “Grand Theft Auto"?
Jessica “Sugar” Kiper, who was the first contestant booted off the all-star, let it slip that she’d be doing some voice work for the upcoming “L.A. Noire” – up until recently, one of the publisher’s most shrouded in secrecy games. (The title, due in September, is being developed by Team Bondi, which is working ..."
Nick, admin of TheGamerAccess.com, is back again with Nick's Gaming View Episode #3. He covers the latest news and happenings in the gaming industry as well as educates gamers how the PS3 and HDMI 1.4 will work together to bring 3D gaming. He also brings up what grinds his gears.
L.A. Noir is getting a lot of attention lately, which it desperately needs, ever since the announcement of being on the cover of Gameinformer. In the issue Rockstar confirms that the game will released sometime this fall. So after all the years of waiting with little to nothing of information, the game is only months away from being on our shelves.
"L.A. Noire is no longer a PlayStation 3 exclusive, confirming a rumour that sparked on an anonymous Twitter account that suggested the game had been “ported” to other systems. That system, according to GameInformer staffer Matthew Kato, is the Xbox 360.
The magazine revealed its March cover on its website, with Team Bondi's latest title taking the lead story. A render of the game is being used for the front and back covers of the issue. The magazine itself will dedicate ten pages to the ga..."
"In the March 2010 issue of Game Informer (on stands this month), the first real details of L.A. Noire are revealed. Developed by Team Bondi (The Getaway), L.A. Noire is an open-world action-adventure game set in the City of Angels in 1947. Unlike previous Rockstar efforts, L.A. Noire exists in a real city, painstakingly recreated for historical accuracy. Don't expect the "shoot everyone" mentality of a Grand Theft Auto title -- this is something completely different."
"Rockstar Games is known for its ambitious projects, and L.A. Noire proves that the company’s reputation is safe. While the rumblings about the game have been heard for years, our world exclusive cover story is the only place you’ll be able to get concrete information on the gritty crime epic. Over the course of our 10-page feature we look at the game’s astonishing reconstruction of 1947 Los Angeles and learn how the team took on such a massive undertaking. We also talk to the team to see L.A...."
L.A. Noire has been hidden away for many years now. Very little information has been revealed about that game and because of that rumors began to spread. Some speculating the game is canceled, a few even say that Rockstars new game The Agent is what is left of L.A. Noire. Well none of that is true and the developers Team Bondi have confirmed that the game is still in development.
""As part of our long standing relationship with Rockstar, and the incredible success for both companies with the cultural icon that is Grand Theft Auto, we've agreed to the PlayStation exclusive rights of the next great franchise from the Rockstar studios," Shorrock wrote."
Tom Crago, the president of the Game Developers' Association of Australia yesterday gave an overview of the development industry at GC Asia 2008. IGN luckily were there and gleaned a few details about L.A Noire. The project being developed by Team Bondi and published by Rockstar. According to him it is about a year from completion and coming to both the 360 and PS3. Though this has yet to be confirmed by the developers or publishers themselves.
