The Painstaking Process Of Recreating 1947 In L.A. Noire

It took several years of work and a ton of man-hours but at the end of the day, Team Bondi managed to recreate 1947 Los Angeles for their new project, L.A. Noire.

In a nice write-up in the LA Times, they unveil a digital LA that has turned the heads of many outside the video game industry. We know about its presence at the Tribeca Film Festival (the first game to receive that honor) and publisher Rockstar hasn't stopped sending out enticing gameplay tidbits in video form. Featuring a cast of characters that includes everyone from Bugsy Siegel to the Black Dahlia (Elizabeth Short), and the oft-discussed MotionScan technology, "the standard for the production design was high." Read up on the behind-the-scenes details; every word read will increase your excitement for this thrilling detective adventure, and we're once again reminded of the importance of atmosphere. Yes indeed, there is a "real romance to the time, as well as incredible violence."

Then again, if you're having a lot of difficulty waiting until May 17, maybe you shouldn't read it. Your impatience will increase tenfold.

I'm going to go check out all the hot spots that I used to visit when I lived in California. I wonder how Korea Town looked in 1947.

Isn't this more of a Team Bondi game than a Rockstar game? I thought Team Bondi was already working on this before Rockstar acquired them.

Yeah, Rockstar is just along for the ride (and paying lots of the bills)

I've always thought there was a singular romance to the period. Can't wait to get immersed in the era and all its enigmatic elements. Along with crime dramas and noir I also love historical fiction. Reminds me of when I ran into a young J. Edgar Hoover in Call of Cthulhu DCotE.

This is the only game that seems to have a good shot at giving UC3 a for its money for GOTY. At least, those are the two games I'm most excited to play. And Battlefield 3, my I'm not expecting the same level of narrative depth as the other two aforementioned games. Can't wait to play this, maybe I'll change my username to Rolo Tomassi.

With all the time spent on this game I have high hopes, but I also have high expectations. Can't wait to read the review.

A day before my birthday hint hint. Also, since the game is based on real events, is there a list of the crimes used for the game so we can read up on them?? Or would that be like cheating?

I wish I knew more about this game. Is it a 3rd person shooter, like Uncharted?

It has to be, it would make more sense. A first person view would be a good optional touch too.

I'd compare it to Red Dead Redemption or Grand Theft Auto before I would compare it to Uncharted.

I hope all this hype doesn't affect the game's reception when it comes out. Either way, I'm anticipating running around this detailed recreation of 1947 LA and getting totally immersed.
