The ineffable blank of the computer screen flares against my corneas. An unblinking eye, soulless and uncaring, peering out from a digital void as soulless as a granite cherub. Its cursor mocks me. The blink is hypnotic in its rhythm, horrific in its judgement, ticking off the moments of my life like the tears of a stricken widow even as it dares me to fill the hollow space around with words.
Words about how Rockstar’s Max Payne 3 will arrive on the XBox 360 and PlayStation 3 on May 15th, 2012, with a PC version following on the 29th. Four months. Round it down, might as well be forty years. This line of work doesn’t take kindly to plotting out the future. I’m just a bowling ball: I go where life throws me and pray to God I can knock down whatever gets in my path.
In another first for the series, Max Payne 3’s multiplayer offering brings the game’s cinematic feel, fluid gunplay and kinetic sense of movement into the realm of online multiplayer. Building on the fiction and signature gameplay elements of the Max Payne universe, Max Payne 3 features a wide range of new and traditional multiplayer modes that play on the themes of paranoia, betrayal and heroism, all delivered with the same epic visual style of the single-player game.
