Max Payne 3


After years of gestation and limited news, the official trailer is now out:

Releases March 2012.


Note to mods: there was some weird God of War/MP3 hybrid thread, but I figured it deserved its own thread. Feel free to merge as desired.

Saw it yesterday evening and I'm not sure what to think. I definitely don't dig Max's new bald and bearded look as it doesn't have a single recognizable element, like the leather jacket or the Hawaiian shirt, that says "this is Max Payne". The guy in the trailer reminds me more of Sam Fisher's Double Agent look with a bit of Lincoln Burrows from Prison Break. I do like that the voice actor is back at least and that the music theme's still there, but it seems the storytelling won't be done via panels as it was in the previous games, but rather via motion captured cutscenes.

Yeah, I'm even more confused now than I was when the initial announcement was made a couple of years back. I thought it was supposed to be some old guy Max, gone to seed who had lost all his hair. Now it seems he's not that much older, he just shaved his head and stacked on a few kilos?

I have to say after seeing this, I'm a lot more optimistic about the game. Looks like the classic bullet-time action is still there and shooting isn't restricted to finding cover and taking pot-shots at the enemy, like in so many "modern" shooters. Even the current HUD looks similar to the one used in May Payne 1 & 2.

Also, maybe I'm just imagining things, but did they just give away the (inevitable) big plot twist at the end there?

This looks nothing like the real São Paulo. It does looks remarkably like Rio, though. Not sure what they were aiming at.

I like where this is going, by the way. Bullet time seems so efficient it almost feels like cheating. But the controls, while apparently improved, still seem far from perfect, as running around until your targeting reticle is on the enemy is used in detriment of just pointing your gun at your him.

I keep forgetting the game isn't set in Rio >_> I'm pretty sure Rockstar mixed up their city names somewhere in the beginning of development and decided to go ahead with it anyway.

Rockstar have opened up the game to tests by the press. There are a bunch of previews around, but here's the one from RPS - http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012...n-max-payne-3/

The prevalence of cutscenes sounds a tad disturbing. Wish devs would stop with the whole "cinematic" thing.

Yeah... I would have preferred they just stick with the proper comic panels from the first two games.

New video with a quick look at the selection of shotguns available:

I don't imagine I'd be using a shotgun much, but the SPAS-15 brings back fond memories of VTM: Bloodlines.

They aren't giving away free copies to all Brazilians?

Heh, got this game today.

So far its a pretty good game, the new bullet time is very nice (its pretty cool when you can follow the bullet in slow motion to its target).

Find myself stuck on the first real boss though, as i can't seem to figure out how to kill the SOB...

For some reason I liked the way Max Payne did bullet-time a lot better than The Matrix.


"They should rename the team to the Washington Government Sucks. Put Obama on the helmet. Line the entire walls of the stadium with the actual text of the ACA.
Fix their home team score on the board to the debt clock, they can win every game 17,000,000,000,000 to 24. Losing team gets taxed by the IRS 100%, then droned."
