Max…Payne.. buddy, what… Uhh, whats going on?  Been gone awhile, You look… you look, good.. bro.  Get a haircut?. yeah.. I noticed that.. looks like all your hair migrated.  an effect of global warming *forced, uncomfortable laugh*.. anyway, I..gotta go…do…something over there. we should do lunch or… a drug induced murder sometime.

All joking of creepy babies and shit aside.  I was hyped to hear there doing another Max Payne as the 1st 2 where excellent.  There are a few things to keep in mind though for lovers of the originals.

1.) Max Payne 1 and 2 where made by Remedy, NOT Rockstar.  This one is being made by Rockstar Vancouver.  this isn’t a negative or a positive, just something to keep in mind.

2.) Look at Max.. he’s like a ….buff, cynical Bruce Jesus over here.  Again, not really a negative I guess, I mean.  The original Max was cool, Max 2 wasn’t bad, and this one..again.  Different.

3.) It’s not set in New York.  The game will take stage in Brazil and timeline wise is set in 2015, 12 years after the events of Max Payne 2.  THIS, is where the possible negative is.  I better not see any futuristic weaponry and armor and crap.

Aside from a lot of different and a minor possibility of a negative.. I’m stoked to see how the story goes.  Remedy did an awesome job at telling a story and Rockstar does a pretty good job of it too.
