The lights are on
Our second Test Chamber episode of the week focuses on Rockstar Games' Max Payne 3. It's been quite a few years since we last checked in on Max. Turns out, he isn't doing too well. He hasn't quite shaken his demons, and no amount of booze or pills seems to help. Dan Ryckert and Tim Turi joined me for a look at Max's turmoil in the early stages of this new shooter. We talk about the story; show Bullet Time in all its glory; and pop pills to ease Max's pain.

Love it! The gameplay looks fun as hell! The graphics look pretty smooth too.
Max Payne 3 has been getting surprisingly mixed reviews. Game Informer, GameSpot, and IGN all loved it, but Giant Bomb wasn't too crazy about it and GameTrailers really ravaged it in their review.
Nonetheless, it looks great to me and I'll be picking it up along with Diablo III in a few hours. I think I'm really going to love Max Payne, just like I loved L.A. Noire.
rockstar's game make me really wanna be a game designer
I got this at the midnight launch on Monday, it was my first midnight launch. I pretty much haven't stopped playing it since
Loving the game so far. I like how you can rotate the camera around Max when the game is paused. It's a subtle nod to the previous games, but fans will notice.
oh crap.... my name is marcello. Coincidence? I think so.
I really like test chamber. This is better than a review. I get to see some actual gameplay with unscripted reactions from some gamers who's job it is to work with games, and hear some dialogue about the game and interesting tidbits, etc. I was a little sketchy on this game until I watched this, now I can see it is a winner. Thanks Reiner and friends!!
Certainly doesn't skimp on the gore...yesh...
We've been waiting almost a decade for this and it looks absolutely amazing. This far surpasses every expectation I had for this game. I'm throwing cold hard cash down as soon as I possibly can.
Wow, this looks fantastic. Now, just gotta finish the first two games.
After seeing this, I'm genuinely interested in this game and I might pick it up after I get burned out on Diablo.
