    It's been suggested here that LA Noire will change video games forever. Is anyone NOT buying this game? If not, why? Also, has anyone heard about LA Noire's Multiplayer? I haven't heard anything about it. Or is it singleplayer only? I know the graphics aren't that great, but it's sporting new tech which probably eats up a ton of CPU cycles. I'm curious to know if people are generally excited for this game.

    I'm not buying it at launch simply because priority goes for The Witcher 2, which has the same release date.
    I will be getting it further down the road though, for sure.

    I could get both at the same time, but by the time I actually get around to playing LA Noire it would probably have had a significant price drop.

    I want to say me because I'm not interested, but that is exactly what I said last year about Red Dead Redemption, which I eventually bought and loved. As of now though I can't say I am excited for it.

    Being a cheap bastard that is still catching up on some great console gaming that I missed during my MMO days, I plan on getting it later when the price drops :)

    meh, la noire looks ok. will i buy it? idk. will i rent it? no. do i care? nope.


    my friend is buying it so i will probably play it at his house. im hopin the fact the weapons and vehicles are lame, and the fact the time period is you know way back when doesnt make it a less enjoyable experience than gta. after playin red dead im pretty sure rockstar couldnt make a worse game, so la noire probably wont be that bad.  the trailer looked pretty good from what i could see.

    I think that article over blows the impact the game *might* have.   I look forward to the game to be sure, but I think there will be more visible connections to other R* style games then most people want to admit.  Time will tell, but I think over promising "change" does nothing o help the game.

    Not buying right away.   I have the Witcher 2 to play.   If it gets good press and reviews then i'll probably check it out a few weeks later.

    Honestly, if them porting it to PC would mean another Bully or GTA4, then believe me it is better that way.

    No. Even if it is great, I'm really sick of the sandbox open world stuff now.


    Bethesda-style open world, I don't mind but the Rockstar formula is getting a tad stale for me

    It seems like you do a really good job of answering your own question. 

     

    I'm not for 2 reasons.  I have yet to play either GTA 4 or Red Dead Redemption, and I'm capable of waiting a day to see if the reviews on this extremely secretive game are good.

    I'm wondering how many people just assume L.A. Noire is just a 1940's GTA or Red Dead. It isn't. This is an adventure game set in an open world. Heavy focus on investigation and interrogation. Think of it as what Telltale is doing, but finally updated to the current day instead of being stuck in the mud.

    Too many good games coming out, I don't have the time to invest. Eventually. Maybe.

    Depends on what certain people who's opinion I trust think off the narrative.

    I'm not buying it for the simple fact that if I want the full game then I would have to preorder it twice.  On top of that when rockstar says things like "Oh, we put so much stuff in this game we had to remove it and add it as dlc in the future", really pisses me off due to the fact they it sounds like they don't want to release it because they know they will get more money by removing things and calling it "dlc" in the future.  You guys are putting this game on 3 xbox discs.  There is no reason why they couldn't just leave the content in except they want to nickle and dime their customers.  Eff you rockstar, I thought you were above Activision like tactics!

    Not right away, I'm waiting to see how it fares with critics. This seems like the kind of game that sounds cool on paper, but in reality isn't all that much fun.

    @SlasherMan: Well, Bully was just completely fucked on every level. GTA 4 was just a reaaaaally lazy port, but modern computers can run it fine after all the patches and optimizations. Seeing as the engine hasn't evolved what so ever since then, most gaming PCs would run it fine at 60 FPS.

    Not buying it until it gets super cheap, if at all.  It's an unproven studio with some cool tech.  This is not going to be a revolution in videogames of any sort.

    It has Noire in the title dude,i think we all know its a good game by now. And if its not released for PC I will end up doing what i always do when a game I'm excited about ends up not being released for PC, quietly resenting it, and anyone who ones a PS3 or Xbox360.

    I'm not buying it. It doesn't look interesting at all to me. I didn't like RDR either before you ask. I also prefer Saint's Row 2 to GTA4 (but i love GTA:SA).

    But that's just the problem, we shouldn't have to wait 2 years for it to get fixed up or for hardware to advance and brute force it.
    Seeing how the port performed on a top of the line (at the time) i7 machine with a GTX 295, it was a disgrace. The damn thing couldn't even keep a consistent framerate at modest settings.

    Tell me this is acceptable or excusable to you for a product you paid money for and awaited in anticipation for 6 months:
    http://www.eurogamer.net/videos/digitalfoundry-gta-iv-frame-rate-analysis

    And if that was not enough, they had to add not one, not two, but THREE layers of DRM to the game. And for what? It was extremely disappointing and not worth the wait at all.
