I'm really interested to see what the hell this game really is.

Edited by X19

Indeed.


I'm going to buy the soundtrack at least.

That is one grumpy looking man.

La Noire Uncharted 3 or Skyrim. One of those will be GOTY

Posted by ZeroCast

It's either this or The Witcher 2.

I am lost Giant Bomb :(...

Posted by Slaker117

I don't know if I'm excited for this or not. Of course, I was also thinking that for both RDR and GTA4, and I love both of those games.

even though I think the faces look kind of creepy...day one buy for me
Posted by LethalKi11ler

My friend at MediaMarkt has it =D Going to pick it up at the end of the week, so excited =D

Posted by PhatSeeJay

Even though I've seen absolutely no demonstration of the game played, aside from the "gameplay trailers", I want this game so frekkin' bad!

Posted by Daveyo520

I hope this is good. I preordered it but will not buy it if it is bad.

Posted by returnofjake

Hopefully there'll be a quick look day of release... I want to want this but I'm not yet convinced.

I'm calling it! This will be the highest rated game of 2011.

what video game stores open real early? I need one before 9am preferably, as I'm going in to remove my wisdom teeth. Man this might be the worst day ever if I don't get to play it day 1....

Bloody love it! Rockstar continuing their tradition with excellent trailers that easily rival ones of cinema.

Posted by samcotts

Looks like another Rockstar game...


Which is incredibly off putting.
Posted by wolf_blitzer85

Goddamn I can't wait to play whatever the hell this game is.

Posted by Dustpan

This and the Witcher 2 on the same day, awesome!

Posted by AlmostSwedish

SO much uncanny valley!

Still, I want this inside of me.

I like what I've seen, but I'll wait for a few reviews. Also want to see how the 360 version handles the 3 discs before I decide what version to buy.

Posted by Afroman269

do want

love the fuck outta the face tech.

Posted by Daveyo520

I hope we get a QL soon, I would love to see this game outside of trailers.

I'd love to be behind this game as much as the next guy, but everything about the faces just looks wrong. They have a unique look to them, to be sure, but they don't look like real people at all, certainly not on the level publications are hyping them up to be. The expressions are there, but I can't help but shake the feeling that the should have waited until there was better technology out (console-wise) to do something like this.

 

Something could be wrong with me, but when I'm seeing these visuals, I'm not thinking "omg look at that game!", I'm more thinking "Well, no shit" when I see the "This trailer was made entirely from in-game footage."

 

The guy who said the faces look "creepy" was on the right track, but I don't know if I'd use that for them. They're something not human.

Can't wait for the Quick Look!

Yet they're the actors actual face...

would be buying it new at full price if it was on steam...same goes for red dead.  But since no PC version its only a gamefly rental.  

Posted by Giefcookie

So, what is this game exactly?

Posted by JackSukeru

I haven't cared or kept up with this game at all, let's see if this trailer can change my mind.

Posted by ImmortalSaiyan

Dear Rockstar: This is not a movie, stop marketing it as one.

You expected maybe....Bungie?

Hopefully this will be pretty good on release.

Yet the faces still look like crap.......
Posted by zungerman090

Faces look expressive, but they are...rubbery? Maybe it is the lighting.

Posted by lumberingjackal

It's got dem heads on bodies for sure

Posted by V

I'm still not totally convinced because of the way that they are doing open world, but who knows, this game may be a great success.

Posted by Swabbleflange

What that Dudley Smith I heard?

Posted by BD_Mr_Bubbles

Can't wait.

Posted by Jerome85

Since I am a sucker for anything film noir related I can not wait to play this game.  Love the time period, the facial animations have always looked amazing.  I can easily see this being my favorite game this year.

Posted by darkjester74

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!  =D

Edited by ProfessorEss

Does anyone know if Giantbomb's getting a free copy of this? Or will they not be reviewing this?

If that looks like crap to you, what the hell is your definition of good?
Posted by Kratch

I hope this is good, but I still don't know what the fuck this game is.  I mean, what the hell do you do in it?  All I've seen is some cut scenes and a little bit of shooting.

I think ME2 had far better faces.

Been playing Mafia 2 at the moment and although the game isn't outstanding, the way 2K games captured the style and feel was very well done. I'm looking for to Rockstar's take on this!

Posted by Fjordson

Oh man, less than a week away. Biggest game of the year for me right here. I can't wait.

Posted by afrokola

Damn this looks good! GOTY? Maybe, we'll just have to see how the rest of the year goes.

yes I to would like to know. Also the expressions are cool but they all look off at the same time.
Posted by Gelatinousgelboy

So hyped for this game.


@ those who think the faces look "wrong": The tech allows for amazingly realistic animation but it can't reasonably use hi-rez textures or bump maps.

Because the heads and faces are generated from video/depth capture, you cannot predict the location or existence of vertices (unlike with other motion capture that connects your movement to the skeleton that controls the 3d mesh). Thus you cannot have one texture map and one bump map per character, but rather you need one for EVERY frame of animation per character. If you wanted perfect hi-rez textures, you'd be looking at a book of discs. Furthermore, the bump maps that give most hi-end 3d its realistic feel can't be easily generated by this tech because it would require a whole second set of images (albeit grayscale) captured at the same time as the textures/vertices and I'd be highly suspect of the accuracy.

At the other end of the spectrum, there are extremely realistic looking 3d faces that would require painful amounts of work to drag out of the uncanny valley on the animation side. What we're left with are faces that will look great in motion, and since it's a videogame, I think it's for the best.

The hats on the other hand....
