Max Payne 3 Details

max payne 3

According to the newest issue of Game Informer, Max Payne 3 will be set 12 years after Max Payne 2 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The storyline follows Max Payne once more after he left New York city to get away from everything, and now works as security for a wealthy family in Brazil. It’s also said that he is addicted to painkillers (seems appropriate) which will have some kind of impact on the gameplay. It will feature a new cover system and will be using Rockstar’s RAGE engine (same used in Grand Theft Auto 4), and will also feature more destructable environments and online multiplayer.

I was a big fan of the original two games in the series so I am looking forward to part 3.


E3 09′: Crysis 2 Confirmed

crysisElectronics Arts and Crytek announced that Crysis 2 is indeed under development for PC, XBOX360, and PlayStation 3.  No info has been released about what the setting or time line is, but it will be using the latest CryEnging 3 tech. Let’s just hope it doesn’t turn out to be another video card destroyer.

E3 09′: Final Fantasy XIV


Squenix announced today the next RPG in the Final Fantasy line will actually be a MMO for both the PC and PS3, Final Fantasy XIV. So far what the trailer has showed me is that it will be based in the same world as Final Fantasy XI but obviously updated. I’m not a fan of FFXI personally, so I sincerely hope they don’t take the gameplay down the same path for FFXIV.



E3 09′: Left 4 Dead 2


Just annouced from Valve Software, Left 4 Dead 2. Due out this November, it will feature a new cast, new location, more detailed zombies, and new weapons including an assortment of melee weapons (including a chainsaw, yummm). I’m slightly questionable about a new Left 4 Dead, just one year after the original, but I’m keeping an open mind.
