There isn't a rule that all noir has to be at night.

I kinda miss the Christian Bale-lookalike Max from Max Payne 2. But at least, we still have James McCaffrey in this. :)

I read all the comments, but nobody said a word about the blood and gore. To me is just too much, I wish there is a way to disable it. It must be the most realistic shooter I have seen, but I don't think that is a good thing. So my question is this, can you disable the blood splatters? I saw in the clip a guy shot in the head and the back of his head just exploded, I couldn't kept thinking about JFK...

That second to last question worries me. No need to play the first two to play the third? No references at all to the first two? The first two are what made Max the way he is...I really, really hope Rockstar doesn't screw it up.

I love how NONE of the questions deal with the story itself. Not a good sign.

Im portuguese, so its cool that they are not including any subtitles! Normally, in the video game world, there are not many advantages to speak Portuguese.. until now : )

Why does gamespot always talk about using controller, not everybody is using a noob console. Always that auto-bot system crap by rockstar. I'm getting this game for pc, so say controller and mouse.

I know Portuguese!!!! Damn, I'm not gonna be getting the same experience that is planned for most people. Still, it's nice to have a usefull skill nobody has. Now it will be usefull, at least. Also, cool to know the game will be in my home country.

I'll wait on this until I have a good understanding how well the 'port' will be on PC. Rockstar's latest offering on PC, LA Noire, was sluggish in terms of combat/controls, lethargic camera, and 30fps lock....Rockstar puts out good products, just wish they had seperate/dedicated PC design team.

Has been worked out to a final kill cam? I was the same in Max Payne 2, and the sniper bullet was shown in a trailer a while ago.

"Autolock" you mean auto-aim for consoles...

All I need from MAX PAYNE 3 is his unique and cynical narrative and the ability to blast guys away in slow motion. Looks like both are bountiful in this game. I am IN. Good work on the video fellas, I gotta have it.

How about the comic-style storytelling in between chapters would that be included?

gee... can anybody put an END to this nonsense about Sao Paulo being sunny??? Sao Paulo has the nickname of DRIZZLE CITY. It has always been much more cloudy than sunny, and because its at a height, its also cooler than Rio de Janeiro. finally, Sao Paulo is DEFINITLY much less sunnier than Los Angeles. And guess what?? Los Angeles IS NOIR, and noir IS LOS ANGELES.
