It's one of those cases where you want to be excited, but really don't want to be at the same time. Hope they don't ruin the franchise too badly, as in make it at least a decent game.

Some people won't like the game whether it is good or not just because Remedy is not involved. Others like me will enjoy it for what it is. Bring on the Payne!

How has the series been ruined? The movie did suck but how does that ruin the series? Whether you liked it or not there is no denying that MP2 was a quality production and you know nothing about MP3. You seem to be jumping the gun.

gameplaywise mp2 was cool but storywise it ruined so many things, max was also more soft, the whole mona shit was obvious that he fuc**d her etc. shit wasnt dark and serious like mp1 was. also mps' face gets changed every time.

mp1 was old school dark shit, a bit hollywood but not too much, mp2 had too much hollywoodshit even the music was crap, or not at all there, i think mp3 will be a consolished, new non old mp feeling game, yeah i cannot know but i dont have hopes for it.

i'm also not whining just posting my comment, i dont even know why.

I thought this might be of interest.

Attachment 1 is from the photoshoot of Max Payne 2.
Attachment 2 is the Max Payne 3 image superimposed on an enlarged version of the photo (flipped horizontally).
Attachment 3 is the same image, but I've adjusted the translucency to make it clearer.

As you can see, the facial features -- eyes, brows, nose, mouth, and ears line up almost perfectly. There's some artistic licence, but I think Timothy Gibbs is still Max, and if the photo is correct, then he still has a full head of hair (hopefully).

I think it looks exactly like the Max from Max Payne 2, just older. If you take away the beard and a few wrinkles you have MP2 Max.


On another note, what is he wearing?



His arms look to be bare, so is he wearing a wifebeater and suspenders?

Aren't you guys wondering where they can take the plot without making it silly and forced? I mean honestly. Remember Godfather part III? That's what I'm saying.

Not to mention Max Payne 2's ending seemed like such a conclusive period to the story: Spoiler:

And without Remedy behind the wheel... I'm not sure how excited I can get about it.
That’s the thing, Remedy were obsessive compulsive about making the world feel real, and giving the characters personality. I just can’t see the guys who made Bully concerning themselves with making sure the TV works, the microwave door opens, and all those other details that made you go 'woah', when you played.

It's also one of the few games I've genuinely laughed at: bad guys whistling and telling bad jokes before you jump round the corner - classic.

TBH the same could have been said when MP2 was announced. To some degree I feel that the MP2 story is ridiculous, but it managed to capture the atmosphere from the first game. To me it is much more viable to take off from the MP2 ending than it was to take off from ending to the original. I really have no doubts that R* Vancouver will make a fun and quality game from a gameplay perspective. The question lies in if they can capture the atmosphere and story telling that makes the MP series so great.

That's great news. And I think Rockstar will make a worthy addition to the franchise, but I'm also certain they will make decisions that will piss off a lot of the hard-core fans. I just hope this time around Rockstar will treat the PC gaming crowd with the respect they deserve.

Everyone seems to be equating Rockstar and Rockstar North. Probably because they are the most prominent studio. But it is being done by Rockstar Vancouver, not Rockstar North.

Allow me to ask a few rhetorical questions;

When was the last time Rockstar games released any editing tools for their games?

When was the last time they developed a game for the PC (not a console port)?

Max Payne 2 was released on three platforms on the same day. If the third game is built for all three systems at once and released on the same day... should be fine.

But after the mess that was the PC release of GTA4, (even though it's a different Rockstar studio) peopel may not be so willing to trust Rockstar's PC releases.

It is probably not co-incidental that is is being done by them. Originally Bully was being made by Rockstar Vienna. But they closed down and moved Bully to Rockstar Vancouver. When the original MP3 rumors appeared it was said to be in development at Rockstar Vienna.

Because Console games in general outsell PC games by a great margin. (I assume)

Don't fret though, it's on PC. Says so in the press release.

Yep, as I already said that 90% it's him only.
Let the full cast participate, but I still think MP3 isn't done unless n until RMD is involved.

Too early to say what this game is going to be like. But without Remedy and 3DR I wasn't looking forward to another studio potentially destroying MP. I hope they at least attempt to evolve the game rather than just making a game that doesn't resemble max payne at all.

Re: Max Payne 3
WOW... Awesome...

I wonder if they're going to use the same engine as GTA IV... Can't wait to start shooting bad guys in blurry, unshaded rooms while the buggy engine tries so hard to load the proper texturing... As well as having fun trying to dodge bullets while the gameplay stutters because of memory leaks and a badly coded and very badly optimised engine.

Can't wait... (stands impatiently)...

The GTA IV engine HAS potential.... as long as they ******* work out the bugs... Having said that - it would be so ******* cool if they kept the video editor with Max Payne....

That would just be.... truly... (drools)

Thats my only concern. Its possibly using the GTA4 engine for the PC.

Whats up with scruf & beards, first Condemed2, then Splinter Cell: Conviction... now Max? Whats next... hobo Duke?

Mmm... interesting concept...

It's time to get shaved and chew second-hand gum... and I'm all out of second-hand gum...



----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I've just also realised... IF Duke Nukem Forever DOESN'T COME OUT before Max Payne 3 does... then it'll be sad to think that a trilogy of Max Payne Games have come out while we're still sitting on our arses waiting for DNF...

And to think I remember watching the Max Payne 2001 E3 trailer AND the Duke Nukem 2001 E3 Trailer on the same day.... Just sad...

I hope Max doesn't become The Punisher. He better have a reason to kill people in MP3. In both previous games he was built as someone that would kill those who stood in his way to revenge, not as a Charles Bronson (Death Wish)-style character that goes out of his way to kill criminals and correct the wrongdoings in society because it's "his philosophy".
