Why is it called L.A. NoirE?
Isn't it supposed to be Noir, no E at the end? (not that I'm questioning rockstar's game naming abilities)

Noire is the spelling for the French word of "black", so maybe there's some French elements to the game.

Or maybe the main detective is a member of the KKK. Ya nevah know.

imo it's a play on words... it's a "noir" style game, basically literally a "Hollywood crime drama", but it's also "black"... dark...

noir is the word for black in french and it is the masculine form, noire is the feminine because the noun "Los angeles" is feminine apperantly

Wait for it... San Marino Giallo

Because its set in Compton, 1987.

As far as this year's line of games is concerned, anything is possible concerning a sequel, I was referring to San Marino outside of Italy though, because Rome Giallo would just sound ridiculous. 1987 wasn't a bad year though, so it's a start, I'll tell R* right away.
