The lights are on
Max Payne 3 looks incredible. We liked what we saw of the game when Rockstar brought it by the office last month, and just couldn't wait to get poor Max back in our lives. We decided to pop in this Remedy classic, shoot up some bad guys in bullet time, and reminisce on the sorry life of one of gaming's greatest sad sacks.
Join Andrew Reiner, Jim Reilly, Kyle Hilliard, and myself as we dive (slo-mo style) back into this third-person noir-style shooter. Do the the constipated facial textures and jaunty animations mar the experience, or will the delightfully overwrought monologue and unique combat win us over again?

Thanks for the brilliant replay! I'm personally not a fan of the series but I do see why people appreciate it so much. Keep up the excellent show and looking forward to the next one :)
I never played Max Payne.
I was looking for a new/used game at my local Game Stop and just looking over the used PS2 games. I asked the store associate about a few titles and he suggested Max Payne. I LOVED it. I went back and got Max Payne 2. If they come out with a new one I will certainly buy it. What do females think of Max? He is hot! lol Well at least he kicks butt. Not buttz.
You should do a replay of the Xbox Sid Meier's Pirates
This game just got passed down to me a couple of weeks ago (PS2 vers).
Yeah, yeah, yeah... we get the John Woo influence, no wonder this plays like Stranglehold (which came out much later tho).
BTW I love "The Mist", best ending ever. XD
Cold slap of rain!
"ALL OF THE BUCK SHOT!!!"
Also, I would totally follow Pill Kollar on Twitter.
Oh man, Tim is killing me here. It a good way.
I never really had the urge to play Max Payne, but now I wish I had. It looks like it could be a lot of fun. Plus, as usual, you guys are enormously entertaining.
Sad to say, I have not played a Max Payne. I will either have to pick them up before 3, or just go ahead and get 3 because it looks incredible. Great choice for a replay btw. And the roulette was a game I have seen before but never played or watched. Good Replay and yes Jet Force Gemini, like I said a lot aha I will say again. Pick that game for a replay please!
hahahaha "Jelly overdose it looks like." This is my all time favorite game.
i hate the stupid nightmare scenes because if you played it on the console it was very hard because of max's clunky movement
Cheetah with a gun? best new idea for a game
