S1E68 - L.A. Noire
Rockstar Games, the studio behind murder simulators like “Grand Theft Auto” and “Red Dead Redemption”, bravely asked it’s audiences in 2011: “wanna play a cop instead?” Featuring the cast of Mad Men’s C-plot characters, “L.A. Noire” puts you in the gumshoes of LAPD Detective Cole Phelps, a terrible yet also unlikable protagonist tasked with solving crimes, yelling at suspects and following a conspiracy that GOES ALL THE WAY TO THE TOP! Noted for it’s ground-breaking facial recognition technology that let gamers, famous for picking up social cues, see if a character was lying or not. It’s a gorgeous mess and we investigate what keeps bringing us back to the city of virtual angels (who Cole also yells at).
