Max Payne 3, Now Available In Black & White

Taking a page from LA Noire's case notes, Rockstar's Max Payne 3 will on August 28 be adding something called "Noir Mode", which is a tidy term for "playing the game in black & white".

It fits with the game's noir overtones, I guess, but given so much of Max Payne 3 is spent in the ridiculously oversaturated Rio, it seems almost a crime to rob your eyes of the city's lush colour palette.

The New Jersey sections, though? Well, they're just about perfect for it.


    Sounds good to me. I'd like to play Heavy Rain in black and white too.

    Is there a way to get the cover black and white too? How about understated? or is it too much to ask that Rockstar might consider a game cover that doesn't have a random gang-banger with an AK and some random T&A front and center? *Looks at Red Dead Redemption's exceptional cover* Hrm... I see... maybe they just didn't give a shit about consistency with Remedy specifically?

    *still annoyed that Rockstar made 'Man on Fire with GTA characterizations' and threw Max Payne into it with no respect for the games that came before*

    This seems cool. I might pick up the game for this.
