GameSpot AU's Laura Parker sits down with the head of Team Bondi, writer and director of L.A. Noire Brendan McNamara, to discuss the game's long development, unique direction, and much more.
@Aletunda note that he is the writer and director...most film directors refer to a movie as 'theirs'. I don't think he meant anything by it and despite this he referred to the team and 'we' constantly throughout the interview.
the game is awsome, but this dude seems like a bit of a prick "my game" im sure he didnt write the 8 mil lines of code himself, that annoys me
I think it's fair enough to comment on the actual interview. There's plenty wrong with it. Someone said he looks bored and not interested - that's mostly because the angle of his chair (or posture) is actually pointed away from the interviewer!? maybe to avoid sitting in that bright light shining on the side of his head! Speaking of that light, it's bad! Hang on, even the interviewer has to bend in the opposite direction to face the guy. At least she is lit well. Hey she kinda looks like the girl in the poster behind the guy.
He doesn't seem disinterested, he answers all the questions with very good answers, which makes it obvious he's passionate about the game, he's just a reserved kinda guy. Looking so forward to this!
When he said Chinatown i thought he was talking about the portable game. Then when he said the movie I was freakin' out
Why are you hung up on his performance during the interview? Why are gamers all of the sudden looking for charisma in the developers? Stop whining. This isn't G4TV. You likely aren't going to get this good a look into L.A. Noire/Team Bondi, straight from the source, anywhere else.
Reminds me of one of my old bosses. Quietly spoken but driven to buggery. let's hope he is that way. I just can't wait. The getaway is a classic but flawed GTA wannabe but joining Rockstar will have helped that no end. ME2 had two discs and 1 BluRay, albeit running ME3 engine. 27gb on 3dvd or 25+gb on 1 bluray, don't think the difference will be that massive.
This'gonna be one friggin LOOONNNGGG game! It will satisfy all the people that complain of beating a typical game in 5-6 hours
Three discs?! I'm sorry, truly I am but that's pretty funny. Though, on the other side for PS3, there might be more compressed textures and maybe slightly longer loading times. Overall, it's better than the PC version... No disc.
