Also I remember this one argument about Max talking about everything like he was speaking to us, rather to himself. Well, how many of guys a had chance to visit this city? He is explaning because he is the same situation you guys are: on a place far away from home, where he doesn't know the language (I mean, really, at least the basics he should know) and things went to shit a lot fast.
To me, it's different: I'm playing the game seeing like what a foreigner ('gringo') would see my country.
Most things that happens in the game (except the endgame and blowing up planes) happens for real here, I mean, the rich are very rich () and throws parties all the time, and the poor are very poor ('How many poor kids want nice sneakers?') and several other things like corrupt forces working with the gangs, sorry, criminal organizations, cutting deals and shit. I suspect that illegal body parts trafficking happens here, but the media hasn't discovered that yet.
And like I said before, besides the fake places (the club, the favela, the bus terminal), this is São Paulo, from best to worst; Rockstar really captured the city's feeling.
Just giving my input. Also finally my city gets some love from devs, suck it Rio de Janeiro.
Anyone know a good way to rank up faster? I've been playing TDM most of the time, and occasionally some Deathmatch and Payne Killer. Some levels just take forever to get through...
The first Max Payne is about Max avenging the death's of wife and kid, basically. The second game is coming full circle and cutting out everyone ever involved in their deaths. The third game is about him getting over their deaths and how necessary it is for him to literally leave the country to finally find peace with himself and everyone involved with him. So what's significant about what happens in the third? Well, he still goes by his cop mentality (loyalty to the badge to the end I suppose). He feels somewhat obligated to be here to do something good to give himself closure from the clusterfuck failure of a life he has lead for the last few years. He can't explain what drives him but he ponders on the idea that perhaps he's doing it because it's not just morally right but it's also giving him a purpose thus satisfaction, imo.
He hates himself. He's guilty of all the friends he has lost, guilty for the affair with Mona Sax , guilty for killing the model cop Winterson . I think it's clear that he's doing everything as a means of redeeming himself once more. If he's killed in the process then he doesn't care; At least he'd know he died doing something morally right.
There is absolutely no reason why Max, given the comics, the ending of MP2 etc. for another Max Payne game in NYC again. MP3 makes perfect sense for what he's doing if you ask me.
I'd like to mention as a guy in Joisey, the Hoboken levels are 100% accurate to living in this state. Hell, Chapter 4 was my daily commute to elementary school every day.
I guess that PassosBro will die on Argentina, too much exposure to Max Payne makes me wonder why he didn't die already.
Also I saw a woman, on my way to college with a shirt with 'Max Payne 3' on it.

So what happened to the footage someone took of FAPS's game of tag?
So having things go to shit during a Gang Wars retrieval match, I decide enough is enough and decide to do something silly.
I shoot dodge of a high roof in Tiete Docks and holy shit. Three headshots are accomplished before landing, rolling to cover then letting lose with a looted AK at the rest of the enemy team then sprinting to pick up the bag.
Retrieval is the best damn gamemode, hands down.
When I was banned from facepunch yesterday, I could join EVERY SINGLE game successfully. Now that I'm not, I can't join shit.
If anyone wants to play this game, get banned from facepunch.
There is no other way!
Just finished the game. My god it is amazing.
Max is free, he's like an Uncle or a Godfather to Passos' kid; they're the family he never had, he's going to protect them growing up as repentance for not protecting his own kid and wife; it's like a chance to redeem himself by giving him a second chance.
The ending showed him in Baha or some shit, I'm expecting that he's not going to be able to just help them whenever.
Also he's pretty old, too. He's a fat, bad tempered American
Max Payne 1 - Revenge
Max Payne 2 - Guilt
Max Payne 3 - Repentance
I'm purely speculating, Nitro, but I think after his vacation in Bahia, he'll want to protect Passos' kid. You know if Passos called Max and said like "Max, I need help, gang X is trying to kill my family", Max would haul arse to protect Giovana and her kid.
The parallels between Max and Passos are kind of interesting actually. You could compare Passos to a pre-max payne 1 Max.
Also, this is an incredibly intelligent and interesting read about Max Payne 3's multiplayer.:
Does everyone here think Multiplayer is well balanced? Also I applied for the FP group but I dont think I'm in
Also, fuck you people who use the RPG in Payne Killer mode.
Yeah I was just wondering if anyone else thought the sniper is OP. I've also seen people rapid fire with the mini30 pretty accurately so I don't like it.
So, was Passos lying when he said that he went to the academy with Max? The way DeSanta says "did he?" when Max brings it up makes me think he told to say that by Victor to convince Max he was a good guy.
Passos probably used it as an icebreaker, rather than for persuasion. Max knew that Passos wouldn't do something extremely terrible though, even if he had information kept from him.
Max after Max Payne 3, doubtful Rockstar would start right where they left off.
Max with Alex during his years at NYPD would be a very interesting game and would be a great reason to go back to the old New York setting for Max Payne.
Oh god some of the punchinello taunts
"I'm gonna grease you, then fuck your corpse!"
"I'm gonna whack you, then
-fuck your mother
-piss in your face
-shoot your dick"
no not really.
Its still the same game about bulletdiving and shooting guys with berettas even if max isn't a depressed wreck.
yes I realized this is basically hitman contracts in a nutshell after I imagined it
A good premise though, could be that its based during the time he was boozing it up, and he is just either playing all these events back in his head, or explaining it to a bartender who probably doesn't give two shits.
The gameplay was spot on and excellent, and it felt like Max Payne - albeit, with a little more emphasis on bullet time and cover than before due to how accurate these bastards can be. The story is what felt off, and not because of it being 'bright Brazil', but due to thematic and generally more aggressive-metaphor circumstances, due to Max seeming more like Bruce Willis to some people rather than the Payne of old. And even then, for folks like me, I don't see that; it's different, but it feels like a Max Payne game one way or another.
I don't know... I like those ideas about flashbacks to his NY cop times, but I think for a fourth installment, they'd need to get just a little away from the bullet time shootdodge gameplay. I know it looks awesome, but I do believe it would get old with another game that in terms of gameplay just stylizes violent shootouts through slow-motion jumps and bullet cams.
I think that something that gives the player a little more freedom is in order, possibly even with adventure elements..find clues, talk to people, although I'm aware that the latter in particular would completely change the way we perceive Max Payne. But the way we perceive him now is, I believe, a bit one-dimensional. We're only ever in control of him when he's shooting people. In order to bring some more immersion, or identification with the character, or whatever you want to call it, I think it's necessary to let us have him do more than punch holes out of bad guys.
the setting fits perfectly because the theme is redemption and it is a whole hell of a lot better and makes more sense than staying in new york!
rockstar max payne 3 vs whatever the original developers made, i'd say rockstar would get it better, drop your nostalgia
