the thoughts and view points of a 22 year-old girl from NYC. I speak my mind and if I offend you forgive me as it is not directly meant to do so. I love movies and video games and am a nerd. I love my sports. NY Yankees, NY Giants, and NY Knicks. I play Xbox an am on Live. thatcatkitten is my gamer tag.
I cannot wait for Pride 2014
No. I did toy with the idea as I have friends in the industry. It just isn’t for me. I have and still do glamour modeling but nothing published nationally.
Hey, my new twitter name just change, it’s David_A_Raven. If you are back on Twitter then find me there. BTW are you pump for the new COD Ghost or BF4
One year after Max Payne 3 has got me thinking…
Max Payne was an amazing game. Remedy created a story and character that was the definition of noir. Max Payne 2 continued that vibe and the subtitle, A Film Noir Love Story was more than accurate. When Rockstar took over development for Max Payne 3, gone were almost if not all the references to the past games. Gone was the dark graphic novel story technique. Gone was the gritty NYC local. Max Payne was still dark and violent, but was more cinematic. It can be called a video game version of Man on Fire without Denzil or Walken.
Rockstar has some of the best franchises under its belt. Grand Theft Auto, Red Dead, Midnight Club, and of course Max Payne. Now, while Max Payne 3 ended on a positive note for the character, and potentially a great ending to a franchise… the question remains… could there be a 4th Max Payne game?
Max Payne’s story will never end unless he is dead. He is cursed by death. He also has a gift, which is also death. Max is much older now as well. While the first two games were shooters that had a pacing, the third entry was an all out action game. For Max Payne 4 to happen, Rockstar would need to do the following:
1) Follow the original tone set by Remedy in the first two games. The neo-noir style and story would be perfect for a 4th Max Payne. A slower pace to the story, with the high-octane action of the third game would be an amazing combination.
2) Move the story back to NYC. Max Payne’s roots are New York. NYC has this amazing look to it. It looks beautiful, it looks dirty, it looks rich, it looks crumby. It promises riches, yet harbors something sinister. This could also be true for Chicago and Miami. But, the story would fit better with NYC considering the mob wants Max dead.
3) Bring back Mona Sax. This was the most upsetting bit of Max Payne 3… we never learned the fate of Max’s love intrest. Depending on what difficulty you beat Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne on, Mona either died or lived. Not once was her name mentioned in 3. It would be a major disservice to exclude Mona from the finale.
4) Reunite Max with his family. This could end one of two ways. One would be the most obvious… end the series with Max dying and finally getting rest and being ruinted with Michelle and their baby. While in Max Payne 3, Max seems to finally break free of the pain of losing the two of them, it is something he can never let go. The other would be a true wild card: end on a positive note with Max and Mona ending up together. Not married, but together.
These are just ideas that I am throwing out there, and I do hope to see another Max Payne game.
