Max Payne 3

Rockstar Games has announced they will be releasing Max Payne 3 this winter on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. This title is supposed to be the darkest and twisted in the series, that is really saying a lot considering the last two. Judging by the picture on the site Max looks a lot older and bitter compared to the prequels. The first Max Payne game was one of the first of its kind to mix the Film Noir style storytelling and atmosphere with gaming. It was also the first game to emphasize "bullet time", bullet time is the ability to slow down time to either dodge bullets or fire a few off. I really hope Max Payne 3 follows the games story more than the recently released movie, Max Payne should have stayed as a game and Marky Mark should have stayed far away from it. But, there was money to be made and Hollywood produced another shitty game to movie adaptation that wasn't true to its roots. The game is in Rockstar's hands and Marky Mark has nothing to do with it, so I have some faith.
