Yes, but then they dropped that even though no gamers picked up on that.

But "spiritual" doesn't mean "direct."

See Dragon Age: Origins. It was billed as a Balder's Gate spiritual successor. And that's what it was, instead of Balder's Gate 3.

I'm talking about their entire catalog except three games. Out of Rockstar's catalog I like GTA3, Vice City and Manhunt.
Everything else... is either boring, dull, annoying, pathetic... flawed...
And I strongly disagree with Rockstar being good at telling a story. They are nowhere near Remedy's story telling abilities...

Yes, he's reprising the voice. Also, Max is being modelled after him as well, this time, I find this to be great.

I... don't.
I mean, it's fantastic that they got him back. When the game was first announced and they said James Mccaffrey wouldn't be back... that was instant fail.
So, now, bringing him back is awesome.

But, modeling Max after him visually... ehhh. So, this makes the third different person Max has been modeled after. Why not just take Max from the second game... and make him older?

Either way, no Remedy, no 3DR, no Sam Lake story.... meh. But, we'll see...

If they are modeling Max after McCaffrey it might have something to do with the game using the L.A. Noire facial animation system. I almost guarantee they are using it for the game. On an ironic note, Remedy says they can do facial animation better.

What's ironic about that? Remedy make strong, story driven games... and they are aiming to develop a very solid facial animation system for their next game.

Come on! It would've been nice if Gibbs was hired back, but if they have decided to use the voice actor as Max's model, who is a real life actor as well, then it's cool.

Yes, some games turn out to be terrible, despite looking good on trailer, like Alone in the Dark. So yeah. Yeah.. well, That's a Team Bondi developed game, anyway. Rockstar is publishing it, only. So there's chance that Rockstar put zero input on L.A. Noire story, I don't know really. That doesn't mean that the Max Payne 3 story has to suck, anyway. I hope it works out.

Except LA Noire is not being made by Rockstar. It's being developed by Team Bondi.
Rockstar are publishing. So, Team Bondi gets credit for LA Noure in my eyes, not Rockstar.

Timothy Gibbs is a "real" actor as well. And Timothy looked great as Max, I'd prefer that they maintain some continuity instead of jumping to yet another different "face" for Max.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
Yeah, he's an actor, too. See, I'm against changing actors when a series is going on, too. I wish Michael Keaton along with the first two Batman movies' staff had came back in the 90's to do Batman 3, with a better script than Batman Returns (and Forever :s)... But, oh time awarded us with better Batman movies. Still, I like Keaton the most.

Anyway, they've chosen this guy to fully portray Payne and I don't oppose the situation. Yes, they're changing lots of things, the main model actor being one of them. So what? I'll ony bash Rockstar Games if this decision isn't well implemented, cause the way I see it, this is not a bad decision at all.

And just like Batman, I feel Sammy Lake is the best Payne model, an icon I'd say. And that said, there's no reason to not get different actors to do the role. Of course, if he was back as Payne and the writer, it would be an awwesome choice.

---

How awesome is, too, that Payne is using hawaiian shirts, like Sam in the very first MP, in this come back ?

There's quite the preview in Edge magazine as well, i don't want to link to them here but there are scans out there.

I also left a couple meaty comments on the latest Rockstar Games posting about Max Payne 3.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
I've checked out the article, and honestly, it sounds promising. I don't know if it's been mentioned here before, but they are using Euphoria in the game, so Max (and other characters) will anticipate the landing from shoot dodges and try to catch himself, etc. We're also going to find out why Max had to leave New York, through animated comic scenes and Max's narration. The article also says that the noir style is still apparent and that it works in the new location.

You guys can continue talking about how Max is being butchered...I'll be staying optimistic and (hopefully) enjoying the game when it comes out

Satisfaction suffers if on my first play through I beat the game in less time than it takes to a watch Lord of the Rings movie.

I bought MP2 when it was a $50 game at release. Given MP2's short length I felt as though I paid $30-$40 to much.

Check out this screenshot, though: http://media.pcgamer.com/files/2011/...ire-alley1.jpg

So at least he will still have his hair and the leather jacket for a portion of the game.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
It's stupid to have Max be older in the game, it should take place shortly after Max Payne II, and he should still have has his hair. Plus, there's just no substitute for New York City, certainly not some third world cesspool. Some place like France might be interesting, if another city must be shown.

But at the very least Max should still be young, jumping so far ahead is crazy. Many fans want more Max Payne games, beyond this one (and hopefully made by Remedy), jumping so far ahead in time limits future story options. They should simply adjust the story and art to make Max look the same age as in Max Payne II, that would solve that problem.

still not convinced by the look of the game...

I really hoped they would stay in New York and show the dark, snowy, rainy, coorupt atmosphere as was intended by the first games...

I also expect them to rape the soundtrack...

A lot of the textures in the environment do look rather low-res and blurry. Texture work and detail is something MP2 did fantastic with.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
I think I know why they switched actors to portray Max. I believe that R* is using the LA Noire facial animation tech in this game. It would make sense for them to implement it in MP3 and all of their future games if they can afford to pay the actors. The tech itself is highly dependent on actors and with them not wanting to switch voice actors for Max, it makes sense that McCaffery will be who Max is modeled after.

That Max Payne above looks a lot like Niko Bellic. Was that done by the same artist, perhaps? Now that Max Payne's a Rockstar/Take Two game, that's got me curious.
