Brian Altena was golfing at the Oyster Bay Golf Links course which lies on the border of North and South Carolina in the US when he spotted a large alligator meandering towards him with something in its mouth. The alligator seemed entirely disinterested in the golfers, instead heading to a nearby lake with its catch. According to Altena, the object was part of a species of large carp that reside in the surrounding lakes. Credit: YouTube/Brian Altena.
Visual Effects and Cinematics focuses on the efforts to which Rockstar Studios has gone to bring a unique and powerfully cinematic presentation style to the fluid and sophisticated gunplay of Max Payne 3. The video highlights the real time motion-comic panel generator that updates the graphic novel style cutscenes made famous by the original games, as well as a series of innovations that move the game seamlessly from cutscene to gunplay and from one chapter to the next, putting greater emphasis on the moment-to-moment shooting action, and keeping the player locked into Max’s dark and troubled narrative.
