This week, Remedy's Sam Lake and Matias Myllyrinne sat down with Gamespot to discuss not only the history of the first two Max Payne titles, but their involvement in the upcoming Max Payne 3.  Hit the video above to hear them specifically discuss Max Payne 3 and for those that didn't catch it when we linked to it on Monday via Twitter, you can take a trip down memory lane into Max's troubled New York past with part 1 of the video interview below.

            It's good to see Rockstar respects Remedy enough to ask for feedback regarding the game. That's one of the reasons you guys are currently the best game developing company that exists, instead of rushing things and making decisions based only on the money you'll get, you always respect your fans and do your best so that your games can be as rich, detailed and etertaining as possible. Keep up the good work! Cheers.

                      Rockstar thanks for that interview I have relay learned allot about The first and Second Game.

                      I had no idea that when doing head capture for the models that Every one in the studio captured there own head.I never knew i was shooting the people at Remedy lol.

                      So this texture for max is this Sam lakes actual head.

                      Also Rockstar I had no idea you guys went out in the most badest neighborhoods to get texture Reference Wow

                      Rockstar you guys at Remedy and Rockstar do some crazy stuff just to make a Game.But Rockstar I thought that the game used digitized textures.
                      I Treasure Max Payne 1 and 2 now.Huge Respect Rockstar Respect.

                      Rockstar why come you guys didn't interview James Mccaffrey I wanted to hear him act out Max Payne i like this interview just can't wait to play MAX PAYNE 3 CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
