Depth Analysis Release L.A. Noire Gag Reel
It may have been a while since Studio Bondi went out of business, but it appears the cold case that was L.A Noire still has some amusing stories to tell. Thanks to Depth Analysis, the firm responsible for capturing the character’s facial expressions, the very best of the actor’s motion-captured mistakes are now available in-game for your viewing pleasure with the L.A. Noire Gag Reel.
The technology used by Depth Analysis to create the iconic facial expressions in L.A. Noire is known as Motionscan, and it allowed for actor’s performances and expressions to be captured and replicated perfectly in-game.
One of (brilliant) side effects of this system is that when an actor makes a mistake, so too do their wise-cracking, tough-as-nails game character.
Check out the gag reel below, which is NSFW thanks to the classically course language of Cole Phelps.
