I really have trouble seeing anything resembling the first two Max Payne games in that video.


Can't you see? The character jumps like the original Max Payne, plus you've got "Max Payne" in the title. So there!

And the graphics are better, so the game must be better too, see? At least that's what's Morgoth tells us, and I don't see anything wrong with that, because what else is there in a game other than graphics? I mean if you want content, just go read a book, you ****ing weirdo. Games aren't made for aesthetically educated people, games are for school boys who love to shoot **** left and right yo! Don't believe me? Ask Morgoth, man, he'll tell ya, aight?

EA ripping off GW, apparently.

You mean Warhammer right? not Gears of War. But yeah, blatant rip off.

Hmmm it is clearly a rip-off but then again the original GW tank is a rip-off of old WW1 MKIV tanks and the Israeli Merkava.

Have you played the game already ?

I have seen enough already to determine it will be better than anything Remedy will every be able to accomplish.

I'm surprised there are even Remedy fans left after the disastrous Alan Wake. But whatever.


How exactly was it disastrous? I found it quite entertaining and the atmosphere in the game beats most generic shooters easily.

Maybe, but luckily enough, I don't play *generic* shooters. What are you up against today, Flouride? Maybe you should replay MP1/2 to refresh your mind and give your memories an anti-nostalgia shock-treatment.

Morgoth, sometimes I love you for bringing a smile to my face.

That's a charming way to say "I disagree with you". Fair enough.

But you know I'm right.

I love postmortems, so I'm posting it. Waves is an indie game that sold 15k. A full 96% of his sales were from Steam. I wonder if that's a good conversion rate from the demo.

I like Max Payne. It is an enjoyable game.

Max Payne 2 was okay, not as good as the first, but okay.

Max Payne 3, no idea how it will be. The fat, bald guy doesn't look like any Max Payne I know though. I know many cops who actually exercised, stayed in shape and ARE NOT fat and bald.

I think MP3 is designed by gamers who want to be Max Payne, they are all fat and bald, but could never do bullit time...so create the vortex of impossibility of someone who can via a computer game.

Will it have the Noir feel to it still? Or will it simply be a Uncharted rehash now? Except instead of a fit guy who travels with fit companions (one who happens to be an older guy who adventures and is NOT fat and bald) it will be a fat, bald guy who somehow acts as if he's 25 and athletic!

On another note: Yes, those tanks from EA certainly do look like a blatant rip of Warhammer 40K designs.

Tim Cook And Gabe Newell are onto something.

I'll buy anything from Valve, anything. Even if that means I'd have to buy a 3000,-- Apple gaming console.

You seem really hung up on the baldness thing. Everyone ages differently.

Greylord, Max isn't balding, he just shaved his head.

When I shave my head, that's what I tell myself as well. :(

When my dad started shaving his head, he said it was to look like Bruce Willis. That's probably the reason Bruce Willis shaves his, too.

Edit: Other news. http://blogs.valvesoftware.com/abrash/
Valve is also investigating wearable computing.

Binary Domain sold 20k units through March

Yep Sega, that's what is happening when you forget to put marketing behind a game.
