Didn't expect a demo, but disappointed nonetheless. I miss demos.
They showed one playable at PAX so I don't really understand why. Then again it's Rockstar so I can't say I'm all that disappointed.
A demo? In 2012?
Rockstar never does demos. This is not a surprise.
Completely expected and acceptable. This is rockstar after all, if you want to play it, just buy it, it's meant to be good.
EA releases demos after demos and hey, those are some pretty shitty games, you don't even need to play the demos to figure that out.
If there's a developer I can entrust my money with, it's either Rockstar or Valve.
I DEMAND BLOOD.
Aww, why not? This is the kind of game where the controls and gameplay are so important to the overall quality of the product that you can almost tell how good the game is from a 40 minute demo.
I trust Rockstar, but this doesn't bode well for its quality.
It features some pretty different mechanics from previous Max Payne games, not to mention it has a locale shift.
I'd definitely want to try it first before buying it.
Hell, the first 2 games had demos.
I don't think there has ever been a Rockstar game I haven't enjoyed. Yes even the table tennis game (I rented it on Gamefly once, don't judge me)
The only solution for that consumer is to pirate the game first, and that give the publisher a reason to whine about piracy being a reason for bad sales of their shitty game (see Bulletstorm 2).
Demos for videogames should be as standard as trailers for movies.
I mean it only makes sense and could possibly reduce the number of people pirating it to evaluate whether the game is worth its money or not. A good amount will still want a "neutral" impression instead of a level designed to show off only the best bits, but it would be a small step forward and it would benefit honest customers as well.
For now I guess Betas for multiplayer games are as much as we get. Even closed ones for people theat preorder aren't a bad development.
All my friends pirate like theres no tomorrow, but thats because they don't work and have no money.
The ones that do have money always ask me how a game is and if I know anything about it and if they deem it nice, they buy it.
Demos are a dying breed unfortunately.
I can understand this decision when it comes to open-world-games like GTA or Midnight Club (even though it's not impossible (Just Cause 1 and 2 had demos) but that's not the case with MP3.
Remember the outcry over Deus Ex: Human Revolution's cover system until people actually played it and realised it was alright?
Guess i have to get my demo from somewhere else before i buy it.
You might wanna rephrase or snip that, IMoo
So they're rebooting a series that they didn't originally develop and they think it's a good idea not to provide a demo? Makes me kinda worried, you'd think they'd release one to reassure people.
I won't be buying another Rockstar game until I get Read Dead Redemption on the PC.
So, in other words, I won't be buying another Rockstar game ever again.
I never said I won't be playing them.
