    Nice OT. I can't wait either. Will you play multiplayer or singleplayer first? I jumped into multiplayer first in Red Dead Redemption.

    Why don't you toss up a platform poll, Wicked?

    Nope! I owned them on Xbox at one point, but never played them. Then I traded them in to get something else. :( Kind of bummed because I'd love to play them both right now. Hmmm, wonder if they'll go on sale on Steam any time soon.

    Already have it pre-ordered and nearly paid off.

    Unlike Daniel, I did play the first two games. In fact, I played a bit of 2 a month or so ago on the PC. Great games, and I really hope this one follows the same. Hurry up May 15th!

    I didn't like the first two, but I'll probably still end up playing this at some point.

    Never beat the first one, beat the second. Dan I think they got them downloadable on Xbox live.

    Played the first two I loved the grim and dark downfall of max but I'm curious to know how he even made it to the third. Sadly ill find out later due to silly events .

    I just hope I don't have to follow any blood trails into the abyss while going bat shit on hallucinogens.

    Definitely singleplayer first. I always try to make my way through the campaign and try to master the controls before taking on anything in multiplayer.

    And you want a platform poll? I'll see what I can do, lol.

    But that was the best part! Psychological mindfuck FTW.


    I'm sure we'll get plenty of Sin City Noir, The Matrix bullet-time action and a couple head-trips through the surreal!

    I can remember something about the controls that made the game frustrating at first, but I have enjoyed the series.

    The never-ending hallways weren't bad, but fuck that blood trail maze.

    Controls from a generation gone. But yes, they were a bit odd. Even playing it on the PC recently, movement itself was a tad odd. 3 shouldn't suffer from those problems though, I believe for the most part that controllers have been mapped out completely by now.

    The blood trails, hallucinations, those were great. Frustrating, but great. I didn't like the ones where you had to jump onto the next part of the blood trail though, that...was a pain in the ass.

    I wonder how Rockstar is going to do multiplayer with bullet time. Like are they going to leave it out, put it in, or limit it in someway because I remembered one of the main reasons why Rockstar didn't do multiplayer in the last two games was because of bullet time.

    IT's going to slow down in a certain area based on the videos I've seen.

    Max Payne 1 & 2 were great. 2 was way better, I always enjoyed listening to whatever conversation the enemies were having before I blasted them away. My favorite was the two guys talking about the best movie endings of all time, lol.

    Max Payne was the masters of bullet time action long before Red Dead Redemption, it'll be nice to see how they handle it on the next gen.

    Dan, give me your address and I'll send you Max Payne 1&2 for Xbox.

    Not sure if I'll be getting this or not. I actually haven't been paying much attention to it. Time to click some links.

    Thanks for MP2 Used. I just got confirmation for our review copy. I certainly hope the multiplayer is as good as it looks.

    i'm so happy that they have the same voice actor and even the same music. If they don't have comic book cutscenes I wouldn't mind. Anybody else want to give Rockstar a medal for being such a great developer of story driven games? RDR, GTA, LA Noire it's hard to not be sexually aroused by them........ Is that weird.......
