As promised, here are a bunch of videos of Max Payne 3 captured with a retail version of the game. Though the tiny crosshair does not always make it easy to aim (more than once we found ourselves looking for it on the screen), playing this third installment in the franchise is a lot of fun. Max is still Max, which means he comes with some serious baggage and he kills a lot of bad guys. There is a slight change in terms of atmosphere but the story is as dark as ever. A very good action game in the end, but we were surprised to see so many cutscenes, as we're not sure the hardcore fans will enjoy having to sit and watch quite regularly, instead of simply playing.
@Sdarts: Gonna give that a look. DS3 sure felt totally different from 1 and 2. Very dissapointing for someone who loved the first 2 games. (52 minutes ago)
not every effin game needs a sequel (59 minutes ago)
But even though there are no official numbers, apparently SO failed to meet MS' expectations, it sold apparently quite goddamn bad.... sadly. (1 Hour ago)

Not a surprise by any extent, but as far as I know, this is the first time a developer is so open about how a publisher's business decisions screwed a game and the franchise. (1 Hour ago)
Really great interview. Basically, EA made the decisions to turn DS3 into Action instead of Survival Horror, include microtransactions, have the big set pieces a la CoD, etc. It wasn't Visceral's. (1 Hour ago)
