LA Noir is coming to PC. So get ready to play a great game!

I also can't wait to read how consolized the game is and how linear it is...

Not getting that. Probably only got LA Noir because console sales didn't really match their expectations. They expected 3-4 million sales.

They got 1.45 million sales.

Something tells me L.A. Noire was expensive to make too. :o

My guess is that Rockstar decided to release L.A. Noire because there are a lot of PC adventure fans. Let's not forget that Noire is an adventure game at its heart, so it's only natural to port it to PC ;)

I am very happy that its coming to pc. Its BEST thing that could happen for noire and adventure games lovers.

It will proboably be like 100gb becouse all the faces are fmv, which on pc proboably will be in HD to match high resolutions.

I wonder what performance can we expect. It is gtaIV engine or Team Bondi self made stuff?

Anyway... If I would be a developer I would not agree to port it to pc. Its not going to sell much and people are going to complain a lot whenever its good or bad. I can fully understand why developer are choosing consoles market over pc, but thats also adding to that

There is plenty of cutscenes.
Besides that basicly the whole gameplay is one big cutscene

Um no. The faces are not FMV... How would it be 100GB? Its not even 20GB on the consoles... High resolution textures wouldn't cause the storage to increase so dramatically.

slaWter, All cutscenes are in-game so there's no pre-rendered scenes. Imagine it like a linear less action oriented GTA. They offer the ability to skip portions of the game that do not interest you or you fail at. It's a very casual yet serious adventure game.

Honestly I was wondering if they were rendered or something like Bink videos too. Good to know its all real time in-game. I've seen way too much use of video cut scenes recently. They used them in GTA IV, Batman and so many others.
This is really great news though. The best part is Rockstar says the PC version will have increased fidelity and other graphical enhancements so I'm keeping my finger crossed for nice textures, effects and a real PC experience...We'll see.
I truly hope Heavy Rain and RDR both get the same treatment when and if they are ported, I have not even looked at a single review or video of RDR but it would be a day one buy for me on PC just based on comments I've read.
