Anyone know what they are going to playing tonight? I haven't been able to finish the Bombcast yet, (possibility my answer is there) and was wondering if they still planned one for this week. I've heard a couple of game-names thrown around but nothing really finite and was merely wondering if I missed anything. Also, for the sake of further discussion, what do you think they are going to play if there isn't anything set in stone?

Just Cause 2 multiplayer?

#3 Posted by Yummylee (21242 posts) -

Max Payne 3, apparently.

#4 Posted by YOUNGLINK (538 posts) -

BINGO! To MP3 that is.

#5 Posted by Phatmac (5721 posts) -

Hope they play the PS3 version. Probably not though.

#6 Posted by XenoNick (1390 posts) -

Huh MP3? Wasn't expecting that.

#7 Posted by Sooty (8082 posts) -

Max Payne? Well that's unfortunate.

Roughly around 90 minutes of bitching, going by the shorter length of TNT's lately. And Ryan still enjoyed it, even if he still prefers the first two. But, yeah, Jeff, Brad, Patrick and even Vinny have all been rather outspoken about their disliking of Max Payne 3, or at least the single-player anywhoo. Brad & Jeff barely played any of it in fact. An undoubtedly weird choice, but... I guess they couldn't find anything else...

I'd rather just watch them play some more competitive-cooperative Spelunky.

Ryan likes it so he'll probably be playing it.

Exactly what I though the instant I saw Max Payne 3 announced for today's TNT.

#12 Posted by Demoskinos (14559 posts) -

Yeah odd choice. Not that I am terribly offended as I adore MP3. I would get in on that hot hot action myself but damn it if I didn't lend my copy out to a friend. =(

Will start late and end early, then I will laugh

I like Max Payne 3, I loved the single player and I had some fun hours with the multiplayer. But there has never been a better time for that Runescape TNT..

#15 Posted by MariachiMacabre (7048 posts) -

Runescape TNT sounds like the worst idea.

max payne 3 is awesome, the multiplayer is a blast, i dont get the hate it gets from everyone.

#18 Posted by OllieSpace (12 posts) -

I really enjoyed it. I just Remember the constant hate from giant bomb staff. I would rather the team dysfunction of spelunky then max payne or a retro (thats not snes related) TNT

#19 Posted by Tylea002 (2295 posts) -

@Clonedzero: I don't hate the game, I just don't like watching shooter TNTs. The best ones have been Cards Against Humanity, and that stock exchange wii board game.

I don't think it's proper "hate", really. At least not in the case of it being this week's TNT choice of game. I guess that most people here are tired of first/third person shooters in general, nothing specific against Max Payne 3. I guess it would have gotten the same reaction if it had been, say, Spec Ops: The Line or Bulletstorm.

Besides, the community likes it when they play random shit like the SNES marathon some weeks ago, or when the play local co-op, like Dead Island.

Next week Spelunky TNT, guys. Spelunky.

#21 Posted by yoshisaur (2634 posts) -

Ah, Max Payne 3? Bummer. Not that I hate the franchise, never really played it, just not a very fun sounding TNT. Oh well, I guess we'll see!

#22 Posted by ImmortalSaiyan (4676 posts) -

That seem random. I wonder what their reasoning was for that.

theres alot of potential for some crazy stupid stuff to happen in MP3 multiplayer though. if people get into it, then its pretty amazing and not really like any other shooter out there. we'll see. im actually kinda looking forward to it, will be the first TNT i bother watching in months. i just hope they dont get all whiney and hate on it the whole time.

#24 Edited by gaminghooligan (1406 posts) -

I thought the singleplayer took off when I hit disc 2 and the MP is a fun, but at the time I played it, cheater filled experience, but if they play the 360 Version I might try to get in on this.

EDIT: also the multiplayer might be good for a tnt thanks to the crazy bullet dodge stuff, like the time I bullet dodged down a stair well and got a double kill, or like how everyone on their last legs will bullet dodge through windows sending glass flying as they open up with an uzi

Bummed that it's Max Payne 3. Such a shitty MP mode.

how is the multiplayer shitty? people keep saying that but they never actually say why lol

i still play the multiplayer, its the most fun multiplayer ive played in ages. people diving out of windows, off buildings, all sorts of wacky abilities like changing peoples nametag colors, a game mode that has cycling objectives. with really good feeling controls. i dont understand the hate at all.

#28 Posted by Bucketdeth (8004 posts) -

Shooters are just damn boring to watch, play some Big Rigs multiplayer beta.

#29 Posted by OneManX (1680 posts) -

I dont see how shooters are any more repetitive then, any other games they played.

Also, I think a lot of people aren't giving Max Payne 3 credit in the multiplayer department, it's actually fun and just diving around like a complete jackass will always be fun.

I'm still waiting for a London 2012 TNT. Vinny can represent Italy.

Yeah could be pretty neat.

I think this is the only way MP3 could go well (fingers crossed hoping it embeds).

We agree for once!

#37 Posted by Death_Burnout (3792 posts) -

I remember the first 2 hours of Max Payne 3 multiplayer being the most badass thing...and then I immediately got bored and never touched it again...

#38 Posted by aurahack (2264 posts) -
@Spuirrel: Those guys are way too good at making funny videos. I die every time I watch them play the First Response mod in GTA IV. 
 
Also weird for them to play MP3. I'd hop in if they play it on PS3 but that's about as likely to happen as another passing of Halley's Comet.

that. I guess I'll check into it, possibly watch most of it. Still, I do wish that they'd done the Just Cause 2 multiplayer. Maybe they're still setting it up? Or maybe they'll just play Max Payne for a bit and do something else later?

They're still making up time for that Itadaki Fortune Street TNT. That thing went on for what felt like days!
