The pills would ease the pain.


Max looks completely different and if it really is a different developer, they better bring their A game.
Also this better come out on the PC - I don't see any PC type logo at the webpage. Max Payne is a PC game.

A new developer is a major cause for concern. I am really hoping this will be good, but I still have my doubts that this will be as good as the previous two.


QFT!

I loved Max Payne 1 and 2, but with Remedy busy on Alan Wake I'm not so sure if MP3 will be as good. Call me cautiously optimistic.

Pre-Ordering this shit as soon as it goes up on Amazon. I bought the first two on release day.
Best news of the year so far.

It's just that simple.

It's about fucking time. I've been waiting for this seemingly forever.

Welcome back Max Payne, we missed you.

So this time around Max is a hobo?


That's what I was thinking. Kind of reminds me of Sam Fisher from the Splinter Cell where he goes to prison or whatever. Yea, the big concern for me is the new developer, hopefully they can pull it off since I would love to pick this up on release day, but I'm not a big fan of Rockstar's games except the Max Payne games.

I was actually gonna say he kinda looks like Ethan Thomas from Condemned 2. I think we're all on the same page though. It's that drunken, grizzly, "the world has fucked me over" look. Perfect for someone who shoots first and asks questions later.

I can't wait for this game! Playing the first Max Payne on PC consumed much of my Freshman year in college. It was the cause of me strafing around corners in my dorm, and having to consciously stop myself from punching people as they stepped out of the elevator. Good times! :)

EDIT: Haha, apparently we ARE all on the same page, as many others have made the comparison between Fisher and Thomas as seen here. I guess we can throw the new Max Payne into that grouping of disheveled, disgruntled, law enforcement.

Nice, but don't forget about these other two similar guys... (1st one nobody cared to play, but oh well)

Again, not identical, but not to far off either.

Rockstar is not a new developer in the Max Payne series. I literally just played Max Payne 2 last night and Rockstar's logo was on the front cover, so they have had experience with Max Payne before. So can we stop calling attention to Rockstar being the developer now? Thanks.

Rockstar was the publisher of Max Payne 1 and 2. Max Payne 1 and 2 were developed by Remedy/3D Realms. So Rockstar is new to developing Max Payne.

Not attacking you both at all, just curious what and the hell makes you say HMM DONT know if WANT???? All you have is a F'ing picture... Just confused as to what would make you doubt that this game would be anything but great?

Yep, what Casey said pretty much sums up my feelings.

Ok, but that doesn't mean that the Max Payne franchise is completely foreign territory to Rockstar either, like most people seem to think. It's not like EA or Ubisoft is developing the game, it's a company who's at least worked on it before. Hence my argument that Rockstar developing it is not that big of a deal.

Well, not exactly. All publishing a game really is is putting up the money for the game to be released (it's like the difference between producing and directing). I'm sure Rockstar is familiar with the game in terms of knowing what it's about, but actually crafting story and gameplay components is a different animal.

I mean, it's like that with anything. Televison series hire different writers for seasons (Heroes is a good example), and that causes the show to take on an entirely different feel. We can all honestly HOPE that Rockstar puts the right people in charge of this one: somebody who gets the Max Payne archetype and doesn't just use the movie as a model for this game.

I have faith in Rockstar because they're one of the better developers out there, but considering what we've seen when other game series switch developers, it's understandable that people are apprehensive.

I am so stoked about this announcement. However, I really hope they don't 'roid out Max.

Well I first heard about this over on the entensity forums, and a lot of the members there were talking about how a lot of the screens they saw were in daylight, which lead them to immediately question the game.

I have to say I agree; both the Max Payne games were known for their gritty, dark setting and story-telling. I have high hopes for this game, but something tells me it will disappoint.

Max Payne 3 is the cover of the new Game Informer, it looks great. The game takes place in Sao Paulo, Brazil and looks to be mostly in daylight. Max looks like he's been to hell and back...and went back again! Shaved head, pumped up muscles and basically like Sam Fisher's angrier cousin.

Seriously? I don't have a problem setting the game in Brazil, but the design of Max in this game is just horrid. He looks more like a bearded John McClane from Live Free or Die Hard.

Just got the new Game Informer today, and yeahhh...I don't really like Max being bald. But maybe it's our own fault for making all the comparisons to Ethan Thomas and Sam Fisher based on the early concept art. The game could still definitely be good, but it's hard to believe how much Max has changed since the first game (and I remember when they made a big deal about his "grizzled" appearance in the 2nd game).

It looks like he's aged 30 years. I can only imagine what he's going to sound like. I'm a little scared they've completely forgotten the cool comic book/film noir style that made the first game so appealing. The last thing I want to see is another run of the mill action game with semi-broken controls.

Damn, I have high hopes for this, but Brasil, daylight and if what you're saying is no comic book/film noir style I think I may have to pass on it or at the very least wait for a price drop. I guess I'll find out more when my copy of GI comes in.

If there's one developer I have confidence in, its Rockstar. The feature in GI was pretty interesting and its still way early, but I am optimistic that its going to be quality.

I don't know if I care for the setting, but if they make it work, it will be awesome.

He's saying that he's afraid that they dropped it and not stating that they definitely have. I agree that the film noir style contributed heavily to the coolness of the game and its removal would take away alot of its uniqueness. I wish I had a pc that would play this, but as long as the game isn't butchered to the point where I pass on it then I'll be playing it on console. BTW, too bad about Life as it was a great show.

Did I just miss the E3 coverage of this game? I looked alot and have found nothing and considering this game is scheduled for winter of this year, that's a sketchy sign cause you'd think they'd have SOMETHING to show about it.
