I felt that GTA4's combat was dull as well. It was better in terms of controls, which was a definite improvement over previous entries in the series.
But the weapons themselves just weren't fun to use. They still felt rather weak and powerless.

Yep. Judging by that it seems it will be effing awesome, oh yes! It looks 'slow' at some points, and I'm not talking about bullet time, but I have to see more!

If I had to niptick, I don't like the bullet time nor the health icon. Painkillers should have a separate icon, dam*it!

Anyway, I'm waaaaay so convinced by now, that they should shut up and take my rupees.

I remember reading that the health icon was still in the game... and it seemed slow at some points to me because of the way the person was actually playing it. You could tell he or she was doing so to show off what they were talking about.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
what do you guys think of the Special Edition? I'm more intersted on the physical extras than the in-game ones. Would have rather had an artbook than MP skins.

The problem to me is the price. The first and last time I payed more than $90 for a Special Edition, I later blamed myself for not waiting till price droped (cough cough DNF cough).

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
The only special edition of any game i have ever bought was for Bioshock 2, and this is when it's price dropped from about $100 to $30, talk about a steal! It came with the vinyl record of the OST, a CD OST, a hardcover art book and some posters and in a nifty box no less. I find it incredibly expensive alone for just the normal editions of games these days, let alone buying some godly edition.

I guess if you split everything up for the Payne LE, you're already paying 60 for the game alone... so add in another 10 for the soundtrack, maybe 8 for the key chain and 17-20 for the figurine. It all adds up, certainly looks nice but i probably won't be getting it.

Also, in the past... i was comfortable just paying the 40 dollars for the original Max Payne and getting a cool mouse pad as an added bonus.

Cool mousepad was excellent, and the Max Payne 2's folder-esque box was sexy, too. I'm not really fond of dvd retail boxes .

So, last time Rockstar brought a Special Edition, was when GTAIV came out, does anyone remember if they first said it was gonna have a limited run or something? Cause, they're still selling it up to this day.

And regarding the SE cover, the brasilian dude ruins it for me (and somehow the chick too), they're so random.

I guess we all knew that multiplayer was unavoidable... at least it sounds interesting in theory. In theory. I'll probably ignore it, although it would be cool to see some insane shootouts with bodies flying everywhere

Is that actually supposed to mean something? What does "consolish" look like?

Because seriously, it doesn't make any sense. Uncharted 2 and 3 look amazing. Batman: Arkham City... which was a console title ported to PC, looks fantastic.

Max Payne 3 looks fine. Looks like GTA, only more focused and more detailed.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
Btw, anyone buying the Special Edition? Supposedly, today's the last chance to pre-order it. Honestly, I don't know. I do have faith in MP3, but I hope the Special Edition will still be available later, and at a cheaper price. I love buying this things, but last time I bought a LE I was really disappointed (a game I was very excited about and bought on day 1 and it ended up sucking and now the SE is very cheap at Amazon... can you guess of what game am I talking about?).

Specials Edition of Bioshock 2, GTAIV (360 version) and other games get cheaper and still easy to find years after its release, but sometimes they are truly sold out. I'm not spending $100 I guess. :s

It just looks better and better the more I see of it. I'm loving the attention to detail - about 45 seconds into the video, look at the guy's chest after he's shot. Just two little holes punched into the material.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
What I'm trying to understand is the '35 GB' hard drive space required. That just doesn't make any sense to me.
The rest of the requirements also look off.
The minimum specs looks fine, gives the players a good idea of the bottom line of what's needed to play the game.

But the top end... it just looks like they picked the absolute top end hardware and listed it. That doesn't provide any solid information.
Any game could run on hardware like that. The recommended requirements need to specify what is needed to run the game, not list super, mega, badass PC that could run anything.

I mean, how do you go from a 8600 to a 680? There's a ton of generations of cards in that gap.

You'd think they'd have learnt from GTA 4 that having multiple accounts to play one game is going to put people off.

It's sad that Remedy wasn't allowed to make the game. In fact, we probably could have had two more Max Payne games by now if they would have just been allowed to keep going after Max Payne II. And the style, atmosphere, story and feel of the game would have been true to Max Payne. Well, maybe after this Remedy will get to make the next game

It's not that Remedy weren't allowed to make, they decided not to make another one. They wanted to work on something new, and by that... Alan Wake.
But even after MP3 comes out, I wouldn't expect Remedy to jump on MP4. They are still invested with Alan Wake and who knows what else they could want to try in the future.

Some people from Remedy have said they felt the story was pretty complete with the ending of Max Payne 2.

Hmm, I seem to recall they were willing to work on the next one, but rockstar declined. Seems pretty stupid to buy the rights to the game, then release no sequel for 8 years...

In any case, no one else will make a Max Payne game like Remedy will, they have that unique style and atmosphere to the game and story, and hopefully they will make the next one. The Alan Wake sequel can wait.

By the way, anyone know a site that has this screen shot available in higher res than 1280x720 (preferably with small logo like this or no logo, and no 3d effect applied like rockstar seems to have done to all the wallpapers on their site, grr...)?
