Bald Max Payne is bald

Posted by familyphotoshoot

If you ever played the first two games on the harder difficulties, you know that shootdodging is a horrible tactic that leads to getting killed. I remember in the original Max Payne you would die in like one or two shots if you were playing on Dead on Arrival.

MP and MP2 were all about rolling to dodge fire and going into bullet-time to line up headshots.

It's like a ballet... of bullets

I feel like this guy could describe almost anything and I'd be deeply fascinated. He makes bullet time shooting sound like a science documentary that despite how cool it seems to be implemented in MP3 here is really still just a gimmick that will definitely get tiring at points in the game.

I'm not a fan of the way his left arm just goes limp when he does the slow motion forward jump, looks kinda stupid.

I like watching these videos and imagining that its Walter White.

While it's kinda amazing that "shoot dodge" is now a thing......

RIP English language.

The character animations don't appear to be herky-jerky, which is great, but I wonder if the BulletTime® will get boring after a while.

The control scheme of this game felt really wonky when I played it at PAX, but the kill cinematics were freaking great.

Ugh I have too many games to get as it is.

Great presentation, that little trailer got me really excited for the game.

Wasn't the dodge mechanic the only way to use bullet time in the first game?

You were playing with a <ahem> controller rather than a mouse and keyboard, yes?

As long as the PC version isn't shit, I'm game.

Always loved the jumping backwards bullet time move. So cool.

wait, doesn't this come out on the same day as diablo 3?

Posted by DxBecks

I pre-ordered Max Payne 3 on Steam and got the first two games in the series for free. Now I will have plenty of time to play though them and get caught up on the series just in time for Max Payne 3. I'm quite excited for this game, it looks excellent and the physics look phenomenal.

I kind of feel like Max needs to learn some sweet Wushu flips, rolls, and kick-ups so he can recover stylishly dodges more gracefully than belly-flopping on the ground and then lurching back to his feet. Had a lot of fun with kung-fu mods for Max Payne 2. I hope to see the same.

To maximize style give us the tools. Let that gun ballet flow, getting stopped on the ground is no fun. Breakpoints with regular cover, followed by grabbing mooks for some mobile protection, then climbing and springboarding off the guy for additional dodge action. If shootdoging and sliding into the wall, spin the character around so he contacts feet first for a reverse slide back away...just keep it flowing.

I like the ballistic damage that they have shown. Arterial blood spurts, entrance & exit wounds, bleeding out, and writhing on the floor while holding the wound area. Bad ass. I'm going to be shooting The femoral, bronchial, and carotid all day.

Posted by captain_clayman

i really hope the pc version is good.

Posted by BlackPeople

Ahhh yes, this comes out two days before my birthday. I know what I'm getting with my b-day money this year!

I find the lack of in-game dubstep lacking.

Then don't play on harder difficulties. Play on normal difficulty and enjoy shootdodging. Sounds like good entertainment to me!

No. You could simply tap right mouse button to go into bullet time mode which makes everything move in slow motion including Max. But since that depleted the bullet time bar quickly, people only used it when they had to get one perfect shot on someone. Otherwise they'd shootdodge since it uses a limited amount of bullet time.

I think Max would rather have Miller time over bullet time.

Thank you very much, my good sir.

Bald Max Payne reminds me of Walter White.

Posted by SoothsayerGB

Yeah... I don't know. Maybe this could all work. Getting a strong Kane and Lynch 2 vibe from the art style, heavy combat and bad announcer guy explaining things to me.

Also, really bored with shooting people! ( did I just write that? HA ) I need me some aliens, demons or something else to wreck. Feel like shooting people in video games is for angry teenagers with shaved heads, metal T-shirts and black finger nails.

Edited by chilipeppersman

really looking forward to this, got my preorder done. Anyone playing/looking forward to the multiplayer? Itll be a first for the series, and it could be good. im looking to start a clan for the 360 multiplayer. hit me up at stayinfrosty707, and lets get an early start on this great game!

Posted by HeavyDuty32

Damn, that DOES look stylish.

Posted by BatmanBatman

It looks pretty good.. just hope the singleplayer isn't too short.

@BATMANBATMAN85
The Max Payne games were always relatively short, what Rockstar need to do is make a short game for once instead of stretching what should be an 8 hour story over 30 hours of gameplay

How is health handled? Is it still pill-popping to recover health or stupid red HUD and sit in cover to regen?

Posted by Tesla

Holy shit, I'm going to be playing a new Max Payne game in a few weeks!

Posted by Glottery

Oh man...I wish this would've been released a month before Diablo 3, or vice versa. I can't...hrrfghlhh...eh...maybe I'll buy this and play it on mainteance days...

This looks great.

Animations look great.

Bullet wounds spitting little jets of blood in slow mo look great.

Looks great.
