Having to do with some of your comments about Max Payne 3...First off, the noir genre didn't originate in New York, it was actually LA. Next,you guys were talking about wishing they kept the graphic novel story scenes in the game....really? That would not work today for a game. The original games simply had them as a workaround for Remedy not having the man-power, or budget to create fully animated cut-scenes. Believe me, if you could get away with doing something like that today Alan Wake would of had them. Max Payne 2 came out in 2003, it really needed to be updated to compete with what is out on the market now.
You guys should really go watch the design and technology videos Rockstar has put out. You will then see they are doing incredible things with player control and animation, enemy AI, and new interesting ways to tell a compelling story while still keeping the player immersed in the action.
Game is going to be awesome. GET HYPED!! It's a Rockstar game for god-sakes!!!
