Rockstar: Max Payne 3 "Is Coming"
Max Payne 2 ruled. And we assume Max Payne 3 will rule, too...if it ever shows up.
But maybe we shouldn't be quite so negative. Even though Rockstar keeps the game tightly under wraps, they don't want us to forget the project. Last year, they said they were "still working hard on Max" and we could expect some "news in the coming months."
Well, maybe this qualifies: they've released a couple new screenshots; you see one here, and you can see the other at Rockstar's Twitter page. No, neither picture tells us anything about the gameplay but take heart: we figure that after L.A. Noire releases in mid-May, the publisher will be in a more...talkative position. At this point, is it unfair to guess that Max Payne 3 will make a big splash this holiday season? And how will they go about implementing that legendary bullet-time feature? Countless other gamers have stolen that idea and revamped it for their own purposes, but Max is the original bullet-slower. Nobody has done it better.
At any rate, we'll be very interested to see this big unveiling. Talk about a project with tons of promise...
