Max Payne 3 First Info

Game Informer once again scores big, after Halo 3: Recon, Uncharted 2, God of War III, BioShock 2, Assassin’s Creed II and Modern Warfare 2 (Phew!) it’s now time for our favorite gritty cop (sorry Vic Mackey) to take center stage.02212802

  • There will be Bullet-Time but it will be more violent
  • There will be a night/day cycle

Seven Haunted Seas Trailer

The E3 mayhem is over so I can take a breather but that doesn’t mean that another sweet trailer didn’t just come to my attention.

Said trailer came out about a month ago but I only heard of the game while reading the latest issue of Play (Bayonetta cover) last night.
The game looks really interesting. The first thing you’ll notice is the art style which is gorgeous and obviously reminiscent of The Curse of Monkey Island but much darker.

The game will be an action RPG and you will travel the great sea to discover new islands but the developers have said they want this travel to be a very dangerous endeavor where you will have to face hard weather, sea monsters and more.
The team at Titmouse Games said the game was a mix between Fable and Wind Waker with a darker tone.

In any case I’m keeping an eye on this one because I love the art style and I love pirates and ocean exploration sounds great.
