While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

GameStop Leaks A New Max Payne 3 "Burst" Ability [UPDATE]

Posted on Monday, April 23 @ 15:13:32 Eastern by

[Update:] Kotaku has a detailed run down of many more bursts present in Max Payne 3's multiplayer modes. Here's a bulleted list:
  • Paranoia Burst: A Level 1 Paranoia Burst makes your opponents teammates appear as enemies. Level 2 does this and turns on friendly fire so your opponents start killing each other.
  • Weapon Double Dealer Burst: A Level 1 WDD Burst deactivates the enemy team's special weapon attachments. Level 3 causes all enemies who are holding grenades to drop them, live, at their feet.
  • Grounded Burst: A Level 1 Grounded Burst removes a the player from the enemy team's minimap. Level 2 removes your entire team from the enemy minimap. At Level 3, this burst actually puts false information on the enemy's minimap.
  • Slippery Character Burst (the preorder bonus above): At Level 1, this burst drops a smoke bomb and gives you unlimited stamina to escape. Level 2 does the same thing, with unlimited stamina until death and a flashbang to blind pursuing enemies. Level 3 gives this burst to everyone on your team.
  • The Trigger Happy burst gives you better guns. The Big Dog burst gives you more health. In-game items bought with in-game currency can nullify some of the burst effects.
[Original Post] Rockstar Games has been intentionally silent on the types of abilities players will be able to use to counteract bullet time in Max Payne 3's multiplayer. While a previous multiplayer gameplay trailer detailed the way bullet time would only affect enemies in your line of sight, more burst abilities were teased for a later date.

GameStop has been generous enough to detail one of those abilities in advance, offering up the Slippery Character Burst, in addition to a weapon and a gadget as part of a preorder bonus.

An e-mail sent out to PowerUp Rewards members details an exclusive bonus at the retail giant called the Silent Killer Multiplayer Loadout Pack... although some of these aren't so silent.

The burst in question apparently lets players "easily escape from any firefight." We can assume that the burst will give players enhanced speed to move quickly out of an area and possibly counteract the effects of bullet time. The pack also comes with a rocket launcher and the Listening Device that allows players to hear an enemy from far away.

Max Payne 3 is set for release on Xbox 360 and PS3 May 15th. We'll continue to bring the latest in the lead up to the game's launch.
