[QUOTE=Jericho_Rus;35717946]You mean you can't snipe because of how fast they move? Use bullet time. Or you mean you can't see them? Then move to the next scaffolding through the building.[/QUOTE] It's really goddamn annoying. [sp]I'm on a scaffolding, there's an exchange between me and Max about "The crowd going wild". The mooks come out of a door beneath me, but they fire before I can see them and Max dies.[/sp]
Heads up for anyone aching weapons info: [quote=Rockstar Games Twitter][URL]http://twitter.com/#!/RockstarGames/statuses/195527948776914945[/URL] [I]We've got a big new #MaxPayne3 weapons feature coming in about one hour w/ new video & more - get ready...[/I][/quote]

Is there melee weapons in this?
[QUOTE=Over-Run;35720364]Is there melee weapons in this?[/QUOTE] I don't think so. They don't seem like they would have any use in a gunplay-centric game like this. Here are the new screens featuring the M1911 (Beretta): [img]http://www.rockstargames.com/maxpayne3/img/global/screens/maxpayne3-weapon-the1911-01-1280.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.rockstargames.com/maxpayne3/img/global/screens/maxpayne3-weapon-the1911-02-1280.jpg[/img] [img]http://www.rockstargames.com/maxpayne3/img/global/screens/maxpayne3-weapon-the1911-03-1280.jpg[/img] Does the second pic's tie make sense to anyone?
[I]I've called the police, they're coming to take you away[/I] [QUOTE=Over-Run;35720364]Is there melee weapons in this?[/QUOTE] I think you can use your guns as melee at close range
It's not really "Max's favourite since day one" but I guess it makes for someone who knows stuff about guns to prefer a 1911 to a beretta.

wait, since when is the 1911 a beretta or max's favourite gun? some pls explain
[QUOTE=Zeraxify;35720815]wait, since when is the 1911 a beretta or max's favourite gun? some pls explain[/QUOTE] It's kinda not, but it kinda makes more sense to be someone's who knows stuff about guns favorite.
I would have said the beretta was max's favourite. It's definitely the gun I used the most in max payne 1 and 2...
The gun that Max has had "since day one" is M9 service Beretta, NOT 1911. 1911 is a whole new weapon to the series. I'm guessing it's the inbetween choice between Beretta and Desert Eagle in terms of power.
[QUOTE=simkas;35720861]It's kinda not, but it kinda makes more sense to be someone's who knows stuff about guns favorite.[/QUOTE] doesn't matter if it's the better gun, them saying it's his favourite since day 1 is kinda bullshit. not that it matters and i'll love the game anyway, i just find it odd that's all.
Rockstar said the singleplayer is as long as Max Payne 1/2. That's around 8 hours. They're counting on replayability of the singleplayer (because you [I]will[/I] play it again) and the multiplayer. I know I'm going to be going through the singleplayer at least four times for the achievements.

I want to fix up [url=http://img1.uploadscreenshot.com/images/orig/4/11016512780-orig.png]that guy[/url] before I post him here. Trying to fiddle with adding weapons to Max Payne 2, too. Got everything working except for HUD bits. [editline]26th April 2012[/editline] Argh Hullu! I will admit the M1911 thing is confusing. The theory was that he handed his Berettas in to the NYPD when he quit/retired, but now it just seems like Rockstar completely replaced the Berettas with the M1911s. I suppose it's possible that in the eight years between Max Payne 2 and 3 he adopted the M1911s as his new favorite.

don't know why people are getting uppity about the pistols, the beretta is still in, just in a brazillian knock-off form [img]http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20120420152732/maxpayne/images/thumb/f/f9/PT92.jpg/830px-PT92.jpg[/img]
I was p much always topped off with ammo for them so I didn't feel guilty when I wanted to unload entire magazines into a particularly annoying motherfucker!

Glad they're willing to adjust the non-issue as soon as possible. Good on them. Here's more about it: [quote=Rockstar Games Twitter][URL]http://twitter.com/#!/RockstarGames/status/195642792779841536[/URL] [i][URL="http://twitter.com/#!/antzpantz/status/195685432720232449"]@antzpant[/URL] [URL="http://twitter.com/#!/Samlouist/status/195684574129430529"]@Samlouist[/URL] The 1911 is inspired by Max’s classic handguns such as the Beretta and Desert Eagle[/i][/quote]
It's good of them to respond so quickly to something like this. It shows that they care what the fans think.
After seeing how much it will take for a PC to run it on top settings I think I may go for a console purchase instead. It's a real shame since it would of looked nice in my steam list with the previous games.

I just love people who later bitch about their 30 fov locked gaming experiences on consoles. Be a man and get a PC if you want real gaming. You can quote me on that! P.S. Did I mention I hate consoles, not the console playing people? No flame intended...
