Max Payne 3 First Trailer Hits, with Game Release Set for March

The debut trailer for Max Payne 3 is finally here. After several months on end for quite some time already, Rockstar Games has been incredibly lax on information pertaining to number three in Max Payne's escapade list, and now the former cop-turned private security detail for affluent Brazilian folk who end up under the cross-hairs of Sao Paulo gangbangers, forcing Max to clean up the mess and set things right, even if it means facing down the … [Read more...]
