The Max Payne 3 demo at PAX East is getting a very positive reaction from those who got to try it out and it looks like the voice of Nathan Drake was one of them.
I need me a glass.
I need me some painkillers.
Looks amazing but I still don't like what Rockstar have done to MP, they should of just stuck to New York or some other dark, gritty city with the same noire feel to it, it's the only thing missing from MP3....no noire just acction action and more action. Dosen't help aswell when Max for most of the game looks nothing like himself....bald, beard, bright coloured tops
Totally agree with you, I was really hoping for the film noire atmosphere from the new Max Payne but it seems to be going down an action oriented route.
I disagree. I think going down the dark noire road would be too safe and too familiar so I'm glad they've decided to change things up. The story is hopefully still gritty and from the little I've seen it seems like Max is as messed up as ever. It still looks to have all the action from the first two games, some nice cinematic graphic novel style cutscenes and the original voice actor which are all big pluses.
wait, you guys played it?
The beginning of the game will be set in New York as far as I know. But I agree with others that the entire game should have been set in NY. Noir is one of Max Payne's main cinematic themes and without it, it just isn't the same. Rockstar claims that the noir feel will still remain regardless of location, so I only hope that's true.
I've been reading about the New York levels but in my opinion I think Rockstar are exagerating them abit because they know thats what people like the look of more then the "new route" they've taken Max in, people liking the old "Remedy" feel then Rockstars,.........in reality I think those flashback levels will be really, really short and will be over before you know it. It's just to try and make people who are worried buy the game, but since it's Rockstar people won't complain untill a good 8/10 months later just like GTA4. It's like how recently Rockstar have pointed out Remedy have been a little "involved" with overseeing the game and them saying Rockstar have done well with it......but really it's not like Remedy can do anything if they do feel like what Rockstar has done has ruined what MP was all about, they only can nod their head and smile. I'll be honest if it's a good game, it looks great but deep down it's not the MP sequel I wanted.
And this is news because....? I mean great. He loves it. Certainly a twitter moment. Not it's not news at all :/
Better than the "hey look a hot girl" ones. At least its about an opinion on a video game.
When I have an opinion, not many people give a damn :/
Totally agree with you.
Are you a big name in the game industry? No offense, but with North voicing one of the most notable characters this generation- from one of the most widely acclaimed new franchises this generation- it's not that surprising that his opinion would matter to people. It's not QUITE the same, but it's more akin to Kojima saying he likes a game than someone like you or I.
So... You're essentially saying that because I'm not a big name in the games industry, nobody should give a damn what I say? That's very horrid of you to say.
Quit whining about the game not being in a city that would make the game feel more "noir". Noir isn't only encompassed by the location or setting of a movie or game, it's just ONE of its motifs. So everyone quit bitchin'. And VanillaBear, it seems you don't know much about what goes on in Brazil. They've got crime and corruption just like the American cities you're thinking of, especially in the slums.
Noir was a big part of MP, the sequel even had the sub title of "a film noir love story". It's a HUGE part of Max Payne so please don't make it out like it's nothing. "it's just ONE of its motifs. So everyone quit bitchin'. " and like the rest of them they don't seem to make any return in MP3. I know what goes on in Brazil and I don't care...it's dosen't make a difference when the fact is that kind of setting just dosen't suit a Max Payne game, it dosen't even suit Max's character. I want Max in a leather jacket going down the rat invested dark allies of New York as he fights back the junkies who call it home, looking for the truth in an all new conspiracy........not walk around blowing crap up in a bright sunny setting where Max looks nothing like himself. It's like trying to have Christmas in a hot tropical setting.....it's just not the same.
Well excuse me for wanting a change of setting.
I'm looking forward to playing Max Payne 3 (PC). :D
Seriously, jonzing over what game a voice actor likes to play? Grovel, Grovel.
I want a cookie
The game will be awesome
Whats not to love? I love the series.
