    I'm not sure if I'm happy about this. I loved the first two games a hell of a lot, and this game will need to be exceptional rank among the others, and I'm afraid that its going to go the way of all other recent third person shooters: console centric, featuring those chest high walls and end up crap

    "The thought of a sequal penetrated my thoughts like rain caked bullets, fired from the barrel of a rusty six-shooter that had laid dormant in the holster of my own twisted memories. Those slow motion jumps, those noir-comics, that facial expression of someone who'd just eaten a wasp, all came flooding back like the flow of my enemies blood as it washed around my bare feet. As I stood in the mire of my own making, surrounded by the corpses of my own creation, crying tears of joy that could had been ripped from an angel's black-stained heart, I thought just one simple word: "Sweet" "

    I loved MP 1&2 and still have my original copies.

    "Einstein was right, time is relative to the observer. When you're looking down the barrel of a gun, time slows down. Your whole life flashes by, heartbreak and scars. Stay with it, and you can live a lifetime in that split second."

    Bauul - awesome post. I love Max Payne dialect, if only everyone spoke like that in real life?!

    My personal favourites -

    I don't know about angels, but it's fear that gives men wings.

    You'd find that Lady Luck was really a hooker, and you were fresh out of cash.

    Awesome, hopefully there is somewhere I can move to where we can all talk MaxPaynenglish.

    Oh and super excited for that to come out, lets just hope Rockstar don't F it in the A.

    this has got me thinking...

    what dead IP's would you love to see resurrected?

    The only one I can think of at the moment is the Legacy of Kain series of games, I know they've come full circle so it would be hard to tell much story but with so much lore, deep characters, Ive played al but the blood omen games and I still want more.

    So guys what do you think?

    Conflict Freespace. Those were a great couple of Space Sims, a genre that seems to have fallen by the wayside somewhat in recent history, along with XWing/TIE fighter series as well which was also really good until it got canned.

    Dead IPs ? -

    Little Big Adventure range - classic. that got me into games.
    Day of Defeat - somehow made again much better than DoD source
    Transport Tycoon - Modernised and made better maybe ? I loved TTd , saying that Open TTD is pretty awesome if anyone has checked that out.

    Tyrmot - X Wing - Tie Fighter series was awesome, never enjoyed many other space sims bar those ones. I would love for that to be re invented.

    I really hate to perpetuate the thread jack, but think about this for one sec:

    Crystal Dynamic has the Legacy of Kain license. Crystal Dynamic was eatten by Eidos. Eidos will be part of Squeenix in May of this year. May our minds wander. Personally, I am happy with any Eidos property coming back via the direction of Squaresoft: Fear Effect anyone? Hitman? Tomb Raider? Deus Ex? Thief?

    Great to hear MP is coming back. Hopefully it will keep it's unique style, and not meld with another any of the other types of more recent Rockstar IPs.

    BTW: I thought Baull's post was amazingly clever. Props sir!
