News Comments > Max Payne 3 Announced
37. Re: Max Payne 3 Announced Mar 23, 2009, 20:34 Reactor
 
I liked the first one but disliked the second one where most people seemed to have liked both. shrugs.

Yep, same. The first was a great game with a truly well-crafted story. Max Payne 2 lacked a lot of the subtleties the first game had. It was like someone decided the game had to have more angst, and more pain, and more sadness. And, pain and angst and sadness = swearing, so they added that in too. Now with Rockstar behind the third, I'm certainly not going to hang out to play it. I have no doubt Rockstar will completely miss what made the first game good.

No, I mean it the other way around. I didn't like Pitch Black, but loved the sequel. A lot of the reason why was because of how I first saw the movie. I watched on my computer, in Power DVD, with Vivid colour mode on. It really made a huge difference to the atmosphere of the movie.

I never did play the original, but loved the movie (strange, I know) so I'm interested in this.

Flatline, quit whining. It's an imperfect game, but it's a fun one. If you missed somewhere that games can be repetitive and not perfectly representative of the real world, and yet somehow still be enjoyable, that's something to give yourself a slap for.

Hehe, no worries about the lamenting I agree with your thoughts.

ERe4s3r, you sound like a rendering n00b. You're referring to an AO shader and calling that 'proper'. I can't even begin to describe how out of whack that is.

I agree though that yes, this is a paper tiger. Time will tell what it is, and how well it works. All I hope is that people would stop throwing around terms like photorealistic. Even with a current production renderer achieving photorealism (which isn't that real, when you think about it) is something only the best in the business can do.

Um, you do realise that raytracing is used in other ways, right?

In Australia, it really does depend on the time of day. If you get the right time there are people everywhere. If you don't... well, there are lots of bots playing

Well, maybe it'll be good... but it'll never be OpFlash 2, and we all know it

Not sure I'd say the UI is better, but... the game certainly fun.

Yup, Warfare is great I'd like to try Greed, but Australian servers are still too few in number, sadly.

That way, if the game sucks, you can't be disappointed.

On Blues? Are you kidding?

I thought it was great fun. It was a mad, buggy, crazy mess of a game... but it was fun.

For me, anyway.

I'm holding out to see a solid review for the DS (hopefully the game doesn't ship with a ton of bugs this time) but I'm looking forward to it.

Delta Force: Black Hawk Down by NovaLogic imho has the BEST online sniper deathmatch.

I thought DF2 did, personally. Hiding amongst the voxels was just great fun.

DVD playback out of box. Oh boy, it was SO HARD to load my favorite media player.

True, not much can replace Zoom Player for me. However, although XP does have Media Center (well, sort of) a decent version of Vista has an improved Media Center, which out of all the PVR software I've used is certainly one of the best around (if not the best).

It's a bit of a cherry on top of Vista, but it's worth noting.
