We never thought we’d see the day Mr. Payne put on a tan suit. But there it is. A lot has changed in Max Payne 3. The story begins eight years after the last game (which is about how long it’s been in real life, too). Max is a washed up, drunk, and addicted to painkillers, which isn’t surprising because he popped those pills like red potions in the last two games. He’s fat, and bald, and living in Sao Paulo, Brazil, working as a bodyguard – all that, we can accept. But we never thought we’d see him trade his leather jacket and bad attitude for a tan suit and loafers. At least he’s still killing lots of people.

Showing no signs of remorse for breaking what appears to be a pricy pane of office glass, the well-suited Payne seems ready to finish off the gentleman on the left with his signature bullet time in one of the two new screenshots released by Rockstar Games. Max Payne 3 is expected out this December. We’ll let you know if you should play it.
