The title of open-world crime drama from L.A. Noire creator Brendan McNamara and Australian production company Kennedy Miller Mitchell, Whore of the Orient, has come under fire from a prominent member of the Australian-Chinese community, The Sydney Morning Herald reports. According to the Australian publication, Jieh-Yung Lo, who is the deputy mayor of Monash Council, states that the "The O-word is very similar to the N-word for African-American communities" and the game is an ''attempt to disgrace Chinese culture, history and traditions." Announced last August for Windows PC and next-gen consoles, Whore of the Orient is set in a 1936 Shanghai, as China began to modernize due to Western influence.

Rockstar 'threatened to sue the shit' out of a TV series called 'LA Noir,' says Frank Darabont (update: Take-Two denies it threatened suit)

Director and writer Frank Darabont was in the process of developing a television show titled L.A. Noir when he was forced to change its name as Rockstar "threatened to sue the shit out of me," he told io9. The television series, which shares a similar name with Rockstar's 2011 release L.A. Noire, is set in Los Angeles during 1947 — the same setting and time period of the video game. The series, however, is based on a novel by the same name. "Yes, it was going to be called L.A. Noir, based on the book by John Buntin," said Darabont. "But the video game company with the video game called L.A. Noire (with an e!) threatened to sue the shit out of me, TNT, every company that actually ever worked in Hollywood. And they have the billions of dollars to back it up, apparently. So we're...
