Max Payne 3: Hands-On Preview

Posted by Andy at 17:17. Category: General

Two weeks ago, Max Payne & Rockstar Games fansite webmasters were flown in from around the world for a weekend of Max Payne 3 action. Held in Rockstar's backyard of south-central Manhattan, this was the largest fansite event that the R* team has ever hosted.

We're extremely grateful for the opportunity to check out the game and meet other fansite webmasters. (Thanks, Rockstar!) We're psyched for the release of Max Payne 3.

We've posted a rundown of our impressions on our new sister site, It covers our experiences during the event, and our impressions of the game - specifically system performance, gameplay, Max's abilities, game visuals, multiplayer, and our hopes for the future of the game (including DLC and online community).

L.A. Noire: Exclusive Fansite Preview Event

L.A. Noire

Last weekend, Rockstar Games kindly invited illspirit, Jevon, Andy and I to Los Angeles to experience L.A. Noire first-hand ahead of its release next month. We stayed at the historic Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel (which happens to feature in-game) where we met up with various other fan site operators and contest winners. At previous events hosted by Rockstar, we played together in a single room, but because of the nature of L.A. Noire's gameplay, we were each given our own console to play individually (and at times in groups) in our hotel rooms.

The event consisted of a mini-tour of Los Angeles, a Black Dahlia crime bus tour (which did a good job of describing the period in which L.A. Noire is set), watching fellow webmasters cockblock themselves at the party by the pool, and last but not least, game-time with L.A. Noire. Speaking of the party, there were some rather interesting.. characters to laugh at there, such as the guy from Montreal claiming to be a music video producer—wearing a white dress jacket and jeans—who we took to calling "Canada Vice". But that story is worth an entire chapter by itself!

You can read our general thoughts on the game below, but as we don't want to give away too much about the game (it's really something that should be experienced first-hand) we have refrained from mentioning specific details concerning case and gameplay elements...

Slow News! What about GTA V?

Posted by adamcs at 13:41. Category: General

So we've hit that inevitable slow-news period after a game is released and the excitement dies down. And since there's not much else to talk about, we may as well start speculating on the next GTA (which Rockstar has now undoubtedly began working on). Visit our new GTA 5 site (GTAV.NET) for all the latest news, rumours and updates concerning the next GTA. If any solid info arrives, you'll find it there first.

Today, rumours emerged that the game will be set in LA. It began with a slightly bizarre report on VG247 and was later followed up by an article on Eurogamer which claimed that Rockstar was "definitely" researching locations around Hollywood. It could (like most rumours) be a load of bollocks, but at least it gives us something to talk about. Register at the GTA 5 forum and post your thoughts.
