Turn around, walk away, blow town. That would have been the smart thing to do. Guess I wasn’t that smart.
I guess the Moving Pixels crew isn’t that smart either. Rather than bask in the warmth of the summer sun, our podcast crew revisits the darkened, snowed-in streets of Noir York City with a discussion of Max Payne.

This podcast is also available via iTunes.
