There’s a documentary on the whole push for transgenderism in young kids. It’s pretty sad that we’ve allowed ourselves to get to a point in society where playing make believe about wanting to be your sister or your brother has become a serious enough issue that it’s taken to court or you’re told to let your kids transition for fear of losing them—in more ways than one.

I would say Jordan Peele is far more overrated. It’s not even a comparison to be honest. The few movies he’s directed have all been agenda fueled bullshit that would put you to sleep even if it didn’t have any of that fucking nonsense.

Peele is a decent comedian and actor. Plus, unlike Kojima, he has a good artistic sense when it comes to cinemathography and narrative building. It's just that the content and themes of his films are utter garbage.

So... A bad writer/director who can only produce cool concepts and entertaining gameplay designs + a good director who can only write trash. I expect nothing but a boring pretentious catastrophe from such combination.

I've never heard of Peele and that's probably a good thing. I sometimes wish I never heard of Kojima though lol

James McCaffrey the voice of Max Payne died yesterday. Really fucking bummed. I just started playing MP3 again after years of not on the weekend.

He was going to voice him in the remake too. Sucks.

I didn't realize that. But then again, Remedy has always kept him around for stuff years after the fact and he was just in Alan Wake 2. I wouldn't doubt they were going to use his likeness for Max this time and not use Sam Lake. I hope that's the case. I love the fact he was the look for MP3. McCaffrey was a good looking motherfucker when he was young.

I know people shit on the third one, but you gotta love it just for his performance in it. He's got SO MANY good fucking lines in it. Making him fat and out of shape, and fucked up on booze most of the game really grew on me.

I think they’re all good games, but Max Payne 3 is still the best of them. It still holds its own against modern games.

Probably not. In AW2 they didn't recton Alex Casey, who was Max's placeholder in AW1 due to licensing issues. In the new game Casey is voiced by McCaffrey but looks like Sam Lake... which I really don't like. McCaffrey sounds very old and extremely tired so Lake's face doesn't fit at all.


Then again, Rockstar still owns the rights to Max Payne and they may have wanted McCaffrey to be "the face" again.

Fans wanted a AAA game for decades, and what do we get instead?
Fucking embarrassing...
Shit's not even worth creating a dedicated thread.
People will forget about this travesty in less that a year after release.

Why does everyone want to do first-person games? At least take the time and effort to have a third-person toggle. Some games, like specific horror games, are meant to be played in first-person, because your character is ambiguous and/or it isn’t relevant that you be able to see the character that often.

Indiana Jones should be in third-person. It’s pretty telling that Harrison Ford isn’t doing the voice acting. Didn’t it do the voice-over for that old Xbox game?
