VideoGamer.com has come into possession of what they say is gameplay footage from Whore of the Orient, the new game from the creators of L.A. Noire. You can take a look at the footage below.
I love a game with a cool, interesting main character. But you know what I think I might love even more? A game with multiple cool, interesting main characters. Why not, right? Modern video games are huge! They’ve got room to spare. I love a hero as much as the next red-blooded American, but it’s time to keep expanding.
Is this reel real? Depth Analysis, which created the face scanning technology used in 2011′s L.A. Noire, for some reason released an outtakes reel on Thursday and it shows just how sophisticated the technology really is. We’re not just hearing voice actors flub lines, snicker and look off-camera, we’re seeing their game characters do it to, 1:1, real-time. Holy Toledo, this is video gaming’s first motion-captured blooper reel.
Hollywood director and writer Frank Darabont was working on a TV show called LA Noir, which, aside from having a similar name to Rockstar’s 2011 adventure, was also set in Los Angeles circa 1947, the same year the game begins. Perhaps unsurprisingly, he says he’s had to change the name after Rockstar “threatened to sue the shit out of me”. Update: Take-Two denies in a statement.
