Max Payne 3 Hits Late in '09 (PC)

Hard-boiled detective Max Payne is back, with a few more wrinkles and an even bigger chip on his shoulder.

Six years after the release of Max Payne 2, Rockstar Games, best known for its Grand Theft Auto games, decides it's time to unleash a new Max Payne on the world -- Max Payne 3.

Like the previous games, the hard-boiled detective story will focus on former NYPD gumshoe Max Payne, who's a poster child for Prozac -- he's got major internal demons and a penchant for violence. Sam Houser, Rockstar Games' founder, says that the new Max will be "older, more world-weary and more cynical than before."

It's hard to imagine what a "more cynical" version of Max Payne will be like -- he's already plenty cynical, but we're sure that will somehow translate into more violence, bloodshed and dialogue that sounds like it was ripped from a Dashiell Hammett novel.

The first two Max Payne games (released 2001 and 2003) are often credited with starting the trend of using slow-mo "bullet time" in games -- then used in hundreds of games after -- were some of the few games in the early aughts to successfully blend an interesting storyline and a sympathetic character with high-octane action.

We just hope this Max Payne -- out for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC later this year -- will make us forget about all about the game's abominable film adaptation starring Mark Walburg that stunk up box offices last year.

Oh well... if it was Remedy. I'm not too sure about rockstar , the studio that are doing it were the ones who did bully. But ok.

I'm pretty sure Alan Wake (Remedy) will be better, since they made the first and second max payne. But ok. 2 Max Paynes titles are always welcome :D

Thank God and Satan.

But no Remedy kind of ruined the news for me, plus they just announced it, and it announced for late 09, which seems kind of rushed.

It might've been in development for some time. We don't know.

Worst of the series so far? You say that like the second one was bad or something...

The only thing that sucked was the movie. Even the GBA game was awesome.

WHAT THE FUCK?!?

RIP Max Payne:

http://forum.alanwak...php?t=43&page=9

Man, I've been looking at this all morning and still can't grasp the fact the idiots at Rockstar actually did this. Fucking morons. We want Max Payne 3, not GTA: Sao Paolo. I hope the team dies of lung cancer caused by whatever they were smoking when they started making it this way. To top it all, they changed the voice actor as well.
