Top 10 Film Noir Games
on March 17, 2015 at 06:17 PM
Lanky shadows, a sense of foreboding, and hardboiled crime stories are just three of the many conventions found in film noir. The grainy, black-and-white movies, from Casablanca to Sunset Boulevard , were classic hits in the movie industry between the early 1940s and late '50s. With a flair for the...
Ten Games That Came Back From (Development) Hell
on October 31, 2014 at 04:13 PM
Making a game is never easy. Developers and publishers are subject to time, cost, and human resources constraints, just like other major entertainment media. Ideally, most games would go from conception to development to publication with few hitches. But some seem to hit every possible roadblock, resulting...
Places: The Beautifully Corrupt City Of L.A. (Noire)
on June 07, 2013 at 04:45 PM
I anticipated L.A. Noire for well over a year before it came out. I read Game Informer’s March 2010 cover story several times through because I was so enamored with the breakthroughs in facial animation technology that would come along with this game. That, and the film noir genre is something...
The Best Achievements And Trophies Of 2011
on December 24, 2011 at 07:00 PM
Whether you love them, hate them, or forget they exist until they pop on your screen interrupting your game, achievements and trophies have become a (literally) required aspect of all PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 games. I fall into the love camp, and these are some of my favorites from 2011. The achievements...
The Best Video Game Period Pieces
on August 19, 2011 at 06:13 PM
Movies have embraced period pieces since the beginning of the medium – from historical costume dramas to gangster epics, Hollywood has always made good use of a wide variety of eras. While games are beginning to rival film in terms of production value and storytelling, the industry is still largely...
Reiner And Phil Try To Kill Dan In L.A. Noire
on May 27, 2011 at 07:30 PM
Joe Juba may have already beaten us to the punch , but Reiner and I couldn't avoid spending some time together in L.A. Noire hunting down our colleague and self-proclaimed "swamper," Dan Ryckert. In this powerful 10-minute episode of Reiner and Phil, behold the drama as I fruitlessly attempt...
Walking Down The Dark Alley Of Detective Games
on May 10, 2011 at 01:52 PM
In anticipation of L.A. Noire's release next week, we decided to take a look back at some of the gaming mysteries that have enthralled us over the years. Some of the following titles stick strictly to noir standards like dark tones, wordy inner monologues, and dames in distress, while others import...
How Rockstar Put Me Into L.A. Noire
on January 11, 2011 at 09:00 AM
As Matt Helgeson and I flew out to California last January for our L.A. Noire cover story, he informed me that we'd be visiting a motion capture studio at some point during the trip. I've always enjoyed watching behind-the-scenes featurettes from games and films that demonstrate this process...
Most Anticipated Xbox 360 Games of 2011
on December 28, 2010 at 09:00 AM
Outside of Gears of War 3 and Forza 4, Microsoft hasn't announced any noteworthy Xbox 360 exclusives for 2011, but that doesn't mean the system is lacking in heavy hitters. While we patiently wait for some new announcements, there are enough cross-platform blockbusters to keep you glued to your...
