Ben Chapman voices concerns about the upcoming Max Payne 3, and how Rockstar seem to be handling the game's noir-inspired story all the wrong way:
"The lone, grizzled badass endures dramatic circumstances to save a loved one or rescue a family member. Things go poorly, as noir stories often do, and they recede into a haze of alcohol and painful, longing stares out windows as rain streaks across the face. This is Noir 101. My question is, when was the last time you cared about a character like that?"
