Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?




March 2012 announced as the release month.

Oh and how's this for some colorful Max Payne.



http://www.rockstargames.com/newswir...arch-2012.html

This art doesn't suit the Max Payne i know and love at all, it's way too bright and Miami Vicey/Hawaii 5-0y but i suppose we can thank the Brazilian locale for that...

I agree on that. The cover is totally different to that of the first two.

However, I like the artstyle and hope that this isn't the final cover. Rockstar had some variant cover for RDR for sometime, and only few months before the game was released they presented the actual boxart. I think it was the same for LA Noire.. but I'm not sure.

The game is looking aweesomeeeesweet.

This is not the box art, just an artwork.

And that justifies it being used for a Max Payne game?
No, even if it's not the boxart... them putting that out as promo material for a Max Payne game... is awful.

I know I won't buy it. So the only way I'll play it is if someone gift's it to me on STEAM. Otherwise... nope.
I held onto hope when they first announced it, but now... the series ends with Max Payne 2 IMO.

I don't mind how it's looking so far. They'll have a hell of a time making the story as dramatic and engrossing as the first two, though, and that's what's worried me the most since this was announced. Keeping my fingers crossed.

The theme is out of place, the setting lacks the proper atmosphere... the dialog/writing lacks Max's established personality.

Might have been a good action game, but looks like a terrible Max Payne game. Pass.

This. How this journey will be significant, emocionally speaking, to Max; this is what I want to see.

When the music theme first played, it was awesome, with the sun over the city, hitting the skyscrappers. But I do agree the music theme was out of place at the end of the trailer.

What I found funny was the guy talking to Max at the beginning. It so much reminds me of a post made by Sang:

I'll give it a try, even if fans dislike it once its out. I hope this will be involving and lenghty.

I even digged the part in the trailer when he cut his hair.

An interview piece with Remedy detailing the history of Max Payne. An interesting tidbit at the end is that Rockstar has been sending Remedy builds of the game and has been receiving their input. Looks like Remedy is somewhat involved after all.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
I guess there is a couple Q&A's out now both with Gamespot and IGN, pretty much covering the same stuff that we already know while trying really hard to defend their game and try to reassure that it's going to blow us all away.

I have to say i am getting very curious but still very much on the fence.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
From the former already linked Game Informer Preview..

Quote:
I see one of the subtle new features – a slow motion, controllable bullet’s-eye view of the last kill in an area.
Minus the controllableness of it that's not really a subtle new feature, it's just an expansion on what was done with the Sniper kills.


Destructoid Preview

Quote:
If there's one thing I can see that will bother players, it will be the constant switches from cutscene to gameplay.
Right about that.

Quote:
It also helps that there are no load times from the start to finish of the game.
So no traditional "levels" at all? I always loved the level i.d. illustrations/artwork that showed up before each shoot out.

At least they got the painkillers back and didn't ruin that with health regen!

EDIT: Thanks for that Rock Paper Shotgun link, i think that's the best preview article I've read so far.

From that Rock Paper Shotgun preview...

Quote:
It’s clear that the shooting has retained the original games’ unique sense of twitchy danger, the presentation just dialled up to hyperactive modern standards. Cover and chest high walls are present but could evidently be easily ignored. Max’s hardboiled narration is there, bullet time is definitely making its presence known and Max is just as messed up as ever. The weapon restrictions is a concern, but from what I’ve seen even in sunny Brazil Max Payne is still Max Payne. Rockstar have, more than anything, managed to get the feel of Max’s grumpy gunplay right, and they didn’t even have to eat the flesh of any fallen angels to do so.
Makes me feel good I'm excited for March.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
Max Payne is all about an adult way of unfolding the story of a game. Definatly not holding my breath the way the market is heading, but I do hold on to that 1% of hope.

And im not saying a lot of games had an adult way about them erlier years either, but back then there was atleast room for it. Now a days it seems impossible to produce an AAA-game with even a tiny sense of style. Suppose games like uncharted is the exceptions, but thats because a game like that is trying to be a fast paced action movie anyway, so you´ll catch the whole crowd with the formula anyway.

Im not all old and grumpy though; im starting to look forward to the next phase of gaming, because I think there will once again be room for artistic focus and attention to detail in the future. I just seriously doubt Max Payne 3 will even try to go for it.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
Just read a preview for this in Edge, and although I’m still skeptical about Rockstar creating the same sort of atmosphere, the gameplay itself sounded fun. Two key things that stuck out were; crescendo moments occurring where Max does stuff like dive out of a jeep and the fact that when you dive and hit the bullet time button towards lets say, a wall, you’ll fall face first into the ground.

They've said the graphic novel sequences will return. Though, they will be motion comics instead of still images.

Not surprising. The gunplay in GTA games has always felt incredibly weak and flat.

Re: Max Payne 3 delayed again?
I agree on that, except for gtaIV since I haven't reached any strong shooting mission just yet I can't comment on it; but my EFLC copy just arrived today and the very first mission,which includes shooting, felt alright.

Anyways, I hope that's not the case for Max Payne 3, not only should it be alright, it better be great!

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.
