Max Payne 3 Announced For Next Winter 73

Posted by Soulskill
from the back-to-the-max dept.
tordavis writes with news that Rockstar Games has announced Max Payne 3 is in the works for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. It's currently planned for this coming winter. Quoting the news release: "'We're starting a new chapter of Max's life with this game,' said Sam Houser, Founder of Rockstar Games. 'This is Max as we've never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever. We experience the downward spiral of his life after the events of Max Payne 2 and witness his last chance for salvation.' Since leaving the NYPD and New York itself behind, Max has drifted from bad to worse. Double-crossed and a long way from home, Max is now trapped in a city full of violence and bloodshed, using his weapons and instincts in a desperate search for the truth and a way out."

    When is winter, where is the developer located, it is America or Europe or what, where? Are they in Australia?
    Don't you guys class winter as starting on the 22'nd or something whereas down here in Australia we start our seasons at the start of the month for example.
    How about you list the MONTHS, not the seasons, it's not hard and I don't have to wrack my brain to translate stuff back into simple months.

    When will this dopey, dopey tradition end? It seems to be a North American thing.
    The rest of us use months.

    I'll help you.

    Winter == Summer
    Spring == Fall

    "Max Payne 3 is in the works for the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC" Bah, another cross platform game that will have a watered down, naff conrol system on the PC, take up loads of disk space, have lots of slow loading screens, and probably be raved about in the console world for being ground breaking while not actually doing anything new... not that I'm cynical or annoyed with Fear 2 or anything.

    This is a stupid argument and is making Slashdot stupider. Slashdot is Taco's Blog. I know this is hard for you to grasp, but if the guy who runs it lives in the USA it's pretty reasonable to refer to things from the standpoint of the USA. All you furriners are obviously welcome to use the thing, and you're even welcome to whine about it, but we're not obligated to care.

    That's a bunch of crap. Shit, lots of people in this world don't even know what month they were born in. They might know it was a Tuesday. (I know a Kenyan who lives in my town who's like this; apparently it's standard.) Seasons are understood the world-over.

Real Programmers think better when playing Adventure or Rogue.
