Not necessarily... Look how LA Noire turned out. But hopefully.

Meh. I don't remember hearing the game was anything special anyway. Making it prettier on PC is no different than polishing a turd. It's still not something you'd want to play with.

Actually its regarded as a solid game if you can get past the technical limitations as stated earlier. It supposedly shines as a pyschological thriller/survival action game.


That genre is not my cup'o tea but the only complaints I have heard gameplay wise is that it can get repetitive at times. However isnt that what most games problems are?

What??

I didn't buy L.A. Noire since I have no interest in the game, but since it was a R* PC game I assume that the graphics are insanely breathtaking and that you need a powerhouse computer to run it? I'm basing this assumption on the absurdly good PC port of GTAIV.

Is this assumption incorrect? :what:

aaaaaaaaand MS announced it today.

Early 2012. All old DLC included, no word on the new DLC.

I'm hoping for $29.99

Also, its bound to be GFWL.

Dunno about this one. I bought a 360 GoD code for $5 on Amazon, so I do own the YouTube version of the game....

For those who haven't play it, it's not the game they showed at all the trade shows. The open world got scrapped for what became a linear corridor TPS.

It's a decent enough game with some cool parts, but the enemies are all the same and the actual gameplay leaves a lot to be desired.

It's like a 6.5/10 for me (not using the IGN 7-10 scale, so it's above average IMO). That's about an 8.5 when converted to the IGN 7-10 scale.

Whoa. MS wants this game to sell....

No GFWL. It's using Steamworks DRM.

Kamski, did you check the new AW coming?

I hope it gets released simultaneously on the PC as well. It looks good.
