Op Ed

The Armchair Empire - Curse of the Noire Monkey.
But LA Noire represents a massive missed opportunity.

There was a chance for the developer and publisher to mine the detective stories of radio's Golden Age in North America and real hard boiled detective fiction. I'm writing about the likes of Dragnet, Tales of the Texas Rangers, The Adventures of Sam Spade, the writings of Dashiell Hammett and RaymondChandler, Richard Diamond, and Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar ("The man with the action-packed expense account").

The most damning part is that all this source material to which LA Noire owes its style, sensibility, and vibe is so perfectly suited to episodic or serialized downloadable content.
