DTOID Extra: Hands on with Max Payne 3's multiplayer


Mar 29
Last week, our producer Zac and I were lucky enough to get a full two hours of hands-on time with Max Payne 3's multiplayer, which you may have seen in the trailer that Rockstar released yesterday. We were both incredibly impressed with what we saw, especially the Gang Wars mode. Watch the video to see more of the three different multiplayer modes and what we thought of them! read

Four Max Payne 3 screenshots to get you all moody


Mar 15
Here are four Max Payne 3 screenshots. There are guns in them, and nobody is happy. Max is just angry, all of the time. Angry and bald. Bald and angry.  Still, the shots look pretty enough, and ought to keep your excitement bubbling for what is likely to be one of this year's biggest hits. So why not gawp at them? Remember not to smile. read

Max Payne needs some fashion advice


Jan 13
Looking at these new Max Payne 3 screens has made me realize how badly Max Payne needs a stylist. Sure, he pulls it off with the grey suit, but then he goes and has some sort of midlife crisis causing him to shave his head and wear a tank top. A tank top, people! Don't even get me started on his horrible taste in ties. This has been a moment in Hamza Aziz's fashion ridicule corner. You're welcome. read

Max Payne 3 gameplay trailer ... need we say more?


Nov 17
I don't think more needs to be said for a headline, really. It's a gameplay trailer for Max Payne 3, and it looks pretty effing good! The video tells you how Rockstar is using animation to enhance the gameplay, and how it's made the targeting work in a fluid manner. I have to say, whatever they're doing, it seems to be working. Just check it out, and get yourselves excited! read
