Though New York City is normally regarded as the primary and almost exclusive city for all things noir -- rain, cigarettes, inner monologues, etc. -- Rockstar has been out to challenge that notion lately. After they visited Los Angeles circa 1947 in http://www.trueachievements.com/LA-Noire-xbox-360.htm
, they've now taken Max Payne
out of New York (mostly) and into Sao Paulo, Brazil. So you think Max's Hawaiian shirts can't be noir? Try telling that to Max. Go ahead. I dare you. See how he responds.
The wait is nearly over, if you can believe it. After countless delays, rumors, and assets, http://www.trueachievements.com/Max-Payne-3-xbox-360.htm
is finally due for release next month on May 15th in North America and May 18th elsewhere.
