Having a golden gun doesn't make it more powerful (to my knowledge) .. it's just a color/tint option that you can unlock via single player.


That's pretty much my belief of it too... I've played without them for quite sometime before I realized how to change them to gold and when i did change over I didn't feel anymore powerful.

gold is just a color in mp, but in sp they hold more bullets and 10% stronger? i read that anyway.

and the instruction manual was great. my gf actually said this is why girls don't buy video games when she saw the battlefield 3 guide, which was like a one page black n white slip. i dont even read that stuff but i showed her the max payne 3 guide and she was impressed. this doesnt mean much to equal quality tho as she was equally impressed with the brink manual which was blue and big and pretty shiny ;)

I keep glitching during the strip club, anybody know how to fix this? I can't seem to install the disc either, it freezes at like 44%

If you know someone who has their own copy I would try caching theirs to your HD... if you don't try resitting the disc over and try caching again.

I don't know anybody with the game. There was a giant circular scratch on the disc. Does this cause the glitch? I ended up getting pass the strip club after 20 or so glitch attempts. Problem is the glitch is back in the next area. So I just sent it back to Gamefly and hope they send me a new one asap. I hope its just the disc being scratched causing the glitch.

Circular scratches are the worst. So, yes, that's likely it.

I don't have it yet but I plan on picking it up when it hits $30 new. Seems like most are having a fun time with it.

Just finished. Damn this was a great game. Maybe a chapter too long but thoroughly enjoyed it. Well worth $40 and glad I bought it at launch.

what is the DLC that best buy just sent me?

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

First map pack? (I'm guessing)

Finally got this in yesterday's mail, complete :ps3: copy from GoHastings. Felt a little bad for not giving my money directly to Rockstar so I bought the season pass. Sounds like there's some decent content in there.

Local Justice Pack. Some new weapons, new faction to play as, and 3 new maps.

IMPERIAL PALACE (PAYNE KILLER + DEATHMATCH + TEAM DEATHMATCH)
São Paulo's Imperial Palace is perfect for those that thrive on intense close-quarters combat. Packed with areas that allow you to creep up on unsuspecting enemies, as well as balconies and bars to catch the sluggish passerby, the Imperial Palace is designed for non-stop action, so equip a Loadout that can handle everything that this fast paced multi-level environment holds.

55TH BATTALION HQ (GANG WARS + PAYNE KILLER + DEATHMATCH + TEAM DEATHMATCH)
An expansive bi-level multiplayer map packed with tight corners, bulletproof glass and a balance of open spaces and scattered hiding places, the den of the ruthless São Paulo Special Forces has a seemingly endless number of jail cells, control rooms, and choke points for you to shoot your way out of. Dual wield some powerful pistols or equip a speedy shotgun to get the most out of your Loadout as you showcase your hit and run tactics.

DEPARTURE LOUNGE (PAYNE KILLER + DEATHMATCH + TEAM DEATHMATCH)
Stave off enemies gunning for you through the sunglass kiosks, book stores, and vending machines that litter the Departure Lounge of São Paulo’s Piratininga Airport. Packed with plenty of strategically obstructed views, alcoves, and enough cover to hide you from certain death, this map has been tailored for intense Multiplayer action.

There is also a graveyard map that's 2 bucks I think. Pretty silly that they did 4 maps and only put three in the pack and have to pay for the other one seperately.

Anyone else get in in the double xp weekend? Didn't play that much but still got like 5 levels. Mostly played Hardcore mode which gives even more xp and is really quite fun. No map no health regeneration and free aim.

That map was a gs pre order bonus and they have put all pre order bonuses up for sale now.

Finally finished it last night. This was a bad ass action game and one of my favorite games so far this year. Too bad it's considered a flop sales wise. =(

Kind of sad news to hear about Rockstar Vancouver closing: http://www.gamasutra...g_its_doors.php

At least they will be making an effort to retain everyone.

Nope but I do miss it.

Sadly I did the economic decision and traded the game back in a couple of weeks ago to BBy for 28.80. Prolly wont pick it up again until there is a Complete Edition (dont think it'll get GOTY, but same thing anyways)

Edit: Oh and after credit, price adjustment, and trade in, I got paid 8.80 to play the game and I had it for like 2 months and was starting to get burnt out on the MP when I traded it. Good times.
