Rockstar is giving players a good reason to finish this season's games before March. That's when the latest installment of the noir shooter Max Payne arrives. If haven't been following the franchise, this new video from Rockstar will show you why people are excited about Max Payne 3.

The video, the first in a planned series focusing on the game's design and technology, highlights just some of the impressive tech that's going into Max Payne 3. It covers subjects such as targeting and shooting, movement and animation, bullet time, and AI. It's all shown with in-game footage, so there's plenty to absorb even if you're an expert in these areas.
