The gritty single-player campaign was likely the draw for a lot of Max Payne 3 players, but the multiplayer is still going strong. Rockstar has just pushed out a new title update on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, packing mostly bug fixes and balance adjustments with a distinct focus on multiplayer. The PC version is due later today.
The Rockstar site details the changes. It brings spawn point tweaking, stability and load time improvements, and new weapon balancing adjustments. It also reduces the hardcore playlist requirement from 5,000 to 1,000.
Fixes include the gold textures not unlocking on DLC weapons, XP not incrementing between rank 49 and 50, and a fix to scope weapons using southpaw controls for invert-vertical axis users. Also, if you've found yourself dying in the campaign, you'll be relieved to know it also fixes an issue where the game could autosave immediately before a death.

I powered through this game in one weekend, pretty sure the last time I did that with a game might have been Max Payne 2. Fond memories of both.
Yeah great game, loved every minute of it, just like the last 2.
Does it also add more unnecessary cut scenes?
Cut scenes are very necessary cus they're actually loading screens.
Otherwise they'd be skippable.
Should call them by their true name: Loading-Scenes
Loading stops if you pause during them. I would ocassionaly pause the game and go get food/drink and come back to a still unskippable movie after 10 minutes.
This woudln't be a problem if the game didn't dump you into a fight without cover after a number of them, or have QTE shit during some...
I thought the idea was to watch the cut-scenes and enjoy the story? QTE? There were maybe 2 or 3 of them and they were hardly difficult. In fact they were awesome!
I played through on a higher difficulty, and to get the rest of the guns/clues. I've seen all the stupid "story" the game has to offer. There weren't many QTE things, but starting you off right out of a movie in action, getting killed, and having to reload shit happens if you don't sit right there with it. Annoying as hell.
Hi guys. I just bought max payne 3 recently, and love it a lot.
However, sometimes its smooth, but sometimes its quite choppy.
I realize that my cpu and mainboard is bottleneck, but I didn't expect it to be THAT much of a bottleneck.
Here are my system specs:
i5 760 @3.3
p7p55de - lx (kinda old motherboard i know)
4 GB RAM
EVGA GTX 680
And here are the settings I use in the game:
DX - 11
Resolution - 1920x1080 : 60hz
Vsync - on
Aspect Ratio - Auto
Texture Quality - very high
Shader quality - High
Shadow Quality - Very high
Reflection Quality - very high
Water quality - Very high
FXAA - Very High
MSAA - off
Anisotropic Filtering - 16x
Ambient Occlusion - SSAO
Tessellation - Off
Video Memory - 965 / 2048
It runs just fine on my e8400 so I don't think your CPU is the problem.
Then what else could it be?
Surely not that my mainboard is only running pci express 2.0, instead of 3.0 which is what the gtx 680 is supposed to run at? Could running the gtx 680 on pci express 2.0 somehow slow it down?!
Hmm. . . I dunno.
