L.A. Noire character in Dexter

#1 Posted by DoctorWelch (2774 posts) -

So I just wanted to share this with some people who would actually and appreciate know what they hell I am talking about. I am watching season 5 of Dexter, and the FBI agent is one of the main characters, Roy Earle, in LA Noire. Although the game wasnt super amazing, the fact that I feel as though I have also seen this guy play another character in a movie when in fact, it was actually a video game, is pretty amazing. It just got me excited to see what new games using this technology will mean for the entirety of gaming.

You will see maybe one more game using this technology but even then I think that's a stretch. Nobody wants to work with them, and Team Bondi isn't around anymore to use the tech from its sister company.

Also, I thought LA Noire was super amazing, for what its worth. Which is nothing.

I think that company that was created the tech is actaully no more, or they sold off.

@Dany: Last I heard Team Bondi was absorbed in to it because they owed so much money. I wouldn't be surprised if those debts take them down too.

If you haven't seen Mad Men, watch it and have your mind blown.

But you're going to waste time typing up that comment? The time it took you to type that out would've been equal to the time it would've taken you to google.

The coronererecently played on an episode of Castle too. It was funny to recognize a television star from their appearance in a video game. He was my favorite character in L.A. Noire.

And I would've googled what exactly? 
 
Also, I've seen every Dexter episode and I don't remember that guy, haha. Are you sure he's from Dexter?

Jack Kelso is played by gil mckinney who was in one of the later seasons of friday night lights. I was a big fan of the show so when I saw Kelso in the game i freaked out because the resemblence was uncanny.

Just about to say this. It's the rouges gallery of 1950s era-capable actors.

In season five of Dexter, there is an IA cop working with Laguerta. If you listen closely, or look at the credits, you'll realize he's Kaidan Alenko. And he's a skinny, pale balding fellow.

@AlisterCat: Me too! but yeah nobody cares.

I recognize many of the characters in the game, but I only identified Brian Krause the guy who was on charmed. After that i realize that they used actors... good stuff lol

I really don't hope we get electric clones of actors. If I wanted an actor, I'd go see a movie. I want a videogame with videogame characters.

Planning on it, just after I catch up with Dexter and Breaking Bad.

Why are you constantly a dickhead on the internet. I over my years at GB Ive seen multiply posts of yours where you act like a immature child on these forums. If you don't want to look it up, then don't and leave it at that. Why you waste your life away actively and continuously posting stupid comments on forums is beyond me, and that's all I'm going to say to you.

I wasn't being a dickhead.. Try to re-read that post in a friendly "dude what!" tone, because that's what was intended, not in a hostile or dickish way. Try to relax on these forums, we're mostly friendly with our comments and replies.

Yes, sometimes I'm mature, organizing gamenights and creating massive threads, and sometimes I'm the most immature kid talking crap, it's really fun, you should try it, doesn't harm anybody and gives you some good laughs.

I fail at social life, miserably, so I honestly got nothing better to do than play games and post on this forum 24/7, some of those posts are stupid, and I'm proud of them. Relax.
