Yes, but in the time of PS2 and Xbox the PC was still the dominant platform for FPS, imo. Nowadays, consoles are the primary source of pretty much every game. So it will probably be consolized to death and get some over the top low res, shiny graphics and shitty constricted movement.
I never understood all the negativity games get when they haven't even been released yet. You're assuming the worst when the worst might not happen.


Granted you are right about the god awful consolization ruining gaming as a whole, and it is true in most cases.
So then you do actually understand where the negativity is coming from?
I understand it, but I never don't feel the need to express it whenever a new game comes out. Simply because there's that chance that maybe the game wont be heavily consolized, maybe some of the core features wont get modified to suit the needs of the simple folk on consoles.

That's what I was trying to get at.

That's a bit of an exaggeration.

A lot of us speak for what we've seen over and over and over again. It might not be logical to prejudge a game before playing it, but surely you can see the reason for it.

Yup, consolization can be pretty awful. Not balanced for lean, other reduced control over your character, automation of your character, small maps, few, fewer or no vehicles...bleh.

AvP (3) was an obscene example. A number of things were wrong with that game (the first being that it shared exact titles with the first AvP game in a lame attempt to ignore the previous two). Alien had the most rough-hewn wall climbing possible, marine couldn't crouch and the predator's high-jump was removed in favor of a clumsy "point here to jump" control that lost you critical seconds in any deathmatch.

I've played my share of games that slowly got consolized.

CoD was one of them, Battlefield another. Fallout also comes to mind, the list is endless. Very few games these days are left alone.

It's tragic how both Max Payne and Hitman will be castrated and bastardised. While consoles ruin a lot of the feel in these kinds of games, the most detrimental aspect is having to appeal to individuals with an attention span of a couple of seconds.

I never thought Max Payne was the game to take full advantage of the  differences between the PC and console, but okay.

I'm pretty happy with THQ at the moment. Space Marine is console, sure, but it plays seamlessly on the PC.

I think half of the problem with developers isn't that they develop for console and port to PC, but that they develop for console and lazily port to PC.

1st trailer. Probably won't be anything epic, but hopefully a good shooter unlike Kane & Lynch etc

tl;dr

And yes this doesn't look too promising, after the awesomeness of the first two.
Stimey

I find this statement pretty ironic considering how vastly sluggish multiplayer performance has been for me lately no matter the makeshift solutions I attempt to apply.

Anyway, if I can get past the funky cover, maybe I'll buy MP3.

Interview with some gameplay in it:

http://www.gametrailers.com/video/debut … e-3/724527

Am I the only one who thinks this may end up being Rockstar's first total bomb?

Gameplay looks bland as hell. "Run, dive, slow things down, shoot". It's like all you do is just dive around like a goalie.

I don't think so. As long as the gameplay/story is what we expect from Rockstar/Max Payne Series, I won't find myself having any problem liking it.

I really hope the multiplayer will become something similar to The Specialists (the HalfLife mod) only without the physics bending Matrix jumps...


I was worried when he mentioned cover, but thankfully it looks to have a minor role from the gameplay they have shown..

The Specialists made for good times. Absurdly awesome mod with an absurdly skilled player base.

Anybody else get the game for PC other than me?

As I said in the GTA V thread in TL;DR form, it actually wasn't too consolized with regards to performance/optimization(can't get over how it supports DirectX 9/10/10.1/11 and with good framerates at max settings) or gameplay in my opinion.  Very enjoyable singleplayer and the multiplayer doesn't feel like a crappy gimmick either like I thought it would, although games with large amounts of players experience terrible loading times which can make it very frustrating to play a few consecutive rounds

I've been playing it and the SP is one of the best I've ever played even if it is "tunnel like".

The atmosphere, the feel, the story, Payne (who's a wreck) and the music make this game feel like you're in a movie.

One of the best games I've played

Pissed at multiplayer now, everybody's using the one-hitting sniper rifles and there's at least one godmode hacker in every server.  I consider the multiplayer broken for the time being until they can patch up the hacking bullshit and nerf the sniper rifles, I wouldn't care that they were one-hitters if it worked for the game but this game actually takes a lot of skill to play with any other gun other than the sniper rifles

I finally got round to buying this on PS3, enjoying it so far.
