The Art of Interrogation: New L.A. Noire Screens

Posted on January 17 2011, 6:22pm | Author: R* S | Filed Under: Games

There's plenty of car chases and shootouts in L.A. Noire, but it's how the game creates gameplay out of human interactions that makes it truly groundbreaking. Observing a suspect, analyzing their behavior and knowing when to believe or doubt them - or when to confront them with the evidence you've collected - is the real test of your skill as a detective. Asking the wrong questions could cost you precious time or clues, and falsely accusing a suspect could cause them to clam up completely, depriving you of a precious source of information. MotionScan is the technology that makes this gameplay possible, but it's up to you to make the most of every opportunity. Here are four new screens straight from the interrogation room.

Is this the face of a man with nothing to hide?

Phelps confronts a suspect with the evidence against him.

Phelps questions a witness at the scene of a crime – questioning can take place at crime scenes, residences and places of business whenever you’re active on a case.

As his skeptical partner looks on, Phelps attempts to extract an alibi from a suspect in a hideous crime.

      Wow I really hope RDR & this will make it's way over to PC, just like GTA I'll still get it on console but I would love to play these amazing games on PC given the choice as I have a really good PC that can play GTA IV & episodes maxed @ 1080p silky smooth.
      When it comes to in game facial expressions I think R* do it best :).

            I love all the ambient music in RDR. What kind of music can we expect in LA Noire and will there be radio stations in the cars?

              Haha, I remember when I always told my friends that I hate when game companies release trailers like 3+ months before it comes out cause it just bugs you, instead of it being released the day it's done without anyone knowing. I also used to say I wish they would release less trailers just to get people curious, but it seems like that's what their doing, and it's driving me NUTS!

                Wow, it`s really looking amazing and getting more interesting with each bit of info. Cannot wait to get my hands on it. Also, in the second pic, Phelps` face kinda looks like or reminds me of the dude from Pineapple Express. Dale Denton. Hahaha! I don`t know why, maybe it`s just me. Anyway, I`m real eager to hear more news on this and your other projects (MAX PAYNE 3, AGENT). I`ve been playing unhealthy amounts of the first two Max Payne games in just the last day or two. Give me the third already, ah I want it today!

                              Is l.a noire a free roam game?
                              Or it is like heavy rain?

                                      So, will I be able to choose from a wide range of questions when interrogating a suspect?
                                      By the way these screens look amazing!
