they needed more time to work on his neckbeard render.

That neckbeard better be absolutely flawless when the game releases.

Yea I doubt it. R* is really starting to disappoint me with their bullsh!t. I bet you LA Noire gets push back as well. RDR is probably the last title we're going to play this year from R*.
ReservoirDog316  +   1757d ago
Well, R* rarely hits a bad note (GTA IV is debateable since it's an acquired taste cause it's so slow paced but I loved it) so you should have some faith in them. I mean RDR was delayed multiple times but we ended up getting one of the best open world games ever.

Plus I just saw the movie City of God and it takes place where MP3 takes place. Could be good.

Just don't doubt them. I've never played a bad R* game (haven't played them all but you get my point I hope).

@[...] madkrazygames
It's not Rockstars fault - it's Take-Two. How many times was BioShock 2 delayed? Mafia 2? Red Dead Redemption? Take-Two seems to be delaying all their titles for some reason.

R* probably needed more time
If the game gets delayed out of the fall then it's probably because the dev asked for more time. But it really doesn't matter, there are a ton of titles coming out in the fall and all of them are huge names.

It's probably best for them to take their time to polish it and then release it in a less crowded schedule. They'll probably release it around the same time RDR of released this year.

I just hope they change it all and go back to MP's dark style again

Better make it like the other games instead.
PirateThom  +   1757d ago
9 disagrees?

All I see are 9 people who never played the other games if they think this is a good style choice.
DecoyOctopus  +   1757d ago
exactly! the first two games are masterpieces... this looks nothing like it! it looks like they made a game and then put on the name "max payne" afterwards... also i heard that the game has been delayed because of all the negative feedback they received from real max payne fans and started from scratch and making it more like the first two games... hope its true!

I guess your comment sounded vague. But, yeah, this game looks nothing like the original Max Payne games. The noire style has been replaced with a generic buff guy shooter.
Arnon  +   1757d ago
Agreed. Remedy is a very small development team that focuses on heavy story-driven games. If they screw that up and focus solely on gameplay and bullet-time, I'm going to be pretty mad.

They could probably call it anything and get away with it if it's story isn't big.

My goodness a Rockstar game is delayed, I am in deep shock over this surprise announcement /sarcasm

To be honest I couldn't careless Rockstar + PC does not mix, they seem to have nothing but contempt for PC customers and I don't mind showing contempt for their bugged unfinished products and I bet Max Payne 3 will be the buggiest product yet on the PC.

Max Payne uses the same engine as GTA IV
Charmers  +   1757d ago
Yep I know which is why I am expecting it to be a complete and utter mess on the PC. There is something fundamentally broken with the Rage engine on the PC and Rockstar Toronto have failed to repair it with 7 patches. The only way they are going to get the RAGE engine working properly on the PC is a complete rewrite of it by competent software engineers and that isn't going to happen.

So Max Payne 3 on the PC will be an absolute travesty and Rockstar will have destroyed another great PC franchise on the PC. I don't know if I was a little bit more paranoid I would say they are doing this on purpose... no company can be this utterly incompetent surely ?

That went right over your head. He was referring to how many times this game has been delayed.

Surely R* likes to delay Oo
Roozium  +   1757d ago
But when they realese their games, they're awesome!

They probably saw that article about bad makeovers and are redesigning him as we speak...

Max was delayed while trying to get in shape and finding a flight to New York where he can start the next chapter.

Hopefully this game will never be released.

this game needs to be delayed and started over..
pimpmaster  +   1756d ago
LOL~~`~ take two is so predictable. just watch , mafia 2 is gonna get delayed.
Syaz1  +   1756d ago
cant they just take in remedy for them to complete the trilogy. i'm pretty sure they could use the extra cash anyway since alan wake didn't sell as well as expected. alan wake could have been good but i think ms intefered with the development of the game, it's quite apparent when playing the game. i'm sure rockstar will give them complete control over the development of max payne 3.

so bottom line, rockstar vancouver should can this game and proceed to develop bully 2.

oh well, there's always next year
