Max Payne is my life coach

BT writes: The Westridge Trail in the Santa Monica Mountains traces the spine of the hills, rising more than 200 metres in waves of ascent and descent. It's narrow, with dirt and brush breaking down occasionally into rocky scree, and on a bike the steep and craggy drops are challenging. After weeks of attempts, I finally learned how to master it. My teacher was an alcoholic ex-cop who wreaks havoc as a hired gun in Sao Paolo – the title character of "Max Payne 3". (Max Payne 3 , PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Good article but this game really wasn't that hard once you got the hang of it. You've grown soft.

This is why I quit WoW after getting every server first achievement and going on to kill some "hardmode" boss in 2 attempts near release. I had much more fun wiping in TBC. It felt so empty and meaningless.

This is why I don't plan on picking up a PS4 or 720. I don't ever want to turn into some mouthbreathing pansy who plays this kind of shit. I hope these greedy publishers lose big time for this disturbing trend. Genuinely awesome games like Dark Souls have kept me hooked for now.

Kind of offtopic, but I think the people responsible for the financial crisis definitely should have been punished more severely. I mean even if you don't find them all, you need to make an example of someone.It's risk vs reward. Otherwise people are going to realize that there are no consequences and they will repeat their greedy actions. They need to be asking themselves if it will it be worth a lifetime in jail to be a greedy fuck. Otherwise it isn't a very good game.

And I think America has grown a little too impatient too. Everyone expects immediate gains with their investments. Everyone wants everything fast and immediate. They want quick fixes and easy answers. If they turn to Romney for a quick fix I think they're going to be sorely disappointed. Obama has done a great job with the very poor situation Bush left him. I can tell you from my experience that whenever something is fucked up I have to work 10 times as hard to fix it and I dont get half as much done. I'm guessing he didn't nail their asses to the wall because it would have only set us back further and he's done a great job avoiding all the traps that the republicans have laid for him imo.

When you can't lose, you can never truly win.

@hiredhelp bah ive used all my bubbles, but i can still ninja edit. I thought the single player was perfect! I died more than i want to admit. Loved the story and max's cynicism. But going back through it a second time made me realize how much easier it was especially after playing the multi for a few weeks.

Ive played had every single max payne series if you thought number 3 wasnt a challange then you got softlock on wrong difficulty even playing on hard free aim gave me challanges time to time.

I do agree alot games today made easy thats why most games i choose i set it to hard from the start.
