If you're not excited enough already, Rockstar Games has put out another video on Max Payne 3. The video focuses on the technology that Rockstar has built to maintain the cinematic qualities of the gameplay that the series is known for. They are an important game for understanding the potential of storytelling in gameplay.
The main reason for this is the seamless integration of story into the game, and a clear communication between the writers and programmers. Video games are at their best when the game world makes sense with the style of play within it.
Many people were worried that Remedy didn't have a hand in Max Payne 3. However, from the look of these videos, Remedy's endorsement of the game, and the fact that Rockstar has an unbelievable track record, we at Complex think there's very little to be worried about.
Max Payne 3 will be released on May 15th for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
Can. Not. Wait.
