L.A Noire has gained universal acclaim and success for its compelling storyline and wowed critics with Depth Analysis’s MotionScan, a realistic facial animation technology developed for film and video game industries. This latest footage is exactly how a TV show gag reel looks like except L.A Noire is a video game, not a TV show. Not a single wrinkle or line on the character faces is unnoticeable and the resemblance between actors and in-game characters is terribly uncanny.
And there I was, complaining about how video game character mouths never sync with the words they’re saying or how they’re always lacking expression and emotion. I take that back. This is just… creepy, especially when the actors flub their lines and end up sticking their tongues out.
