      I just want to add that i have no interest in getting to an argument with a stranger online,life is too short for that.I just feel that some ppl should give R* a bit of a break they do look after their fans,can u imagine activision giving free cod dlc so soon after release? It has occured to me how ever that maybe some ppl are still having serious problems that i am not,thankfully the game is running near perfectly for me now,so maybe some ppl are having a very different max payne experience to myself and thus maybe have a justified reason for complaining...If that is the case you genuinely have my sympathies but you can guarantee that R* will be working hard to rectify the problems...Myself i prefer to spend my evenings playing MP3 rather than posting on the msg boards...

        @Bengy17 Not going to carry it on because you are bang on with life's too short! And i do agree with alot of what you said but i found the way you were writing was aggressive and belittling when it was unnecessary. Alot of people do seem to be having major problems still i for which am one, But hearing that your game is working well means there is hope for us all as i rate this game very highly and look forward to the experience that you are having! In some ways having the newswire is a bad thing as when the game doesn't play well it becomes frustrating and this has become a place to vent that anger for alot of people.

      oh i give up i refer u to my previous post if u still cant understand what i am saying then im not going to repeat myself...jeez it really isnt rocket science.i said ppl r complaining about very small faults and u then use a clumsy metaphor equating buying an expensive car with no wheels to being a minor fault...
      • peawickoon September 27 2012, 9:33amReplyFlag
        @Bengy17 And yes the wheels comment was an extreme analargy but i was having one of those frustrated moments that i was talking about.

      Come on everyone we all have to stop being impatient ungrateful moaners with an over developed sense of entitlement otherwise Bengy7 might get upset again! I think we should all do some sunbathing and join a gym!! lol
      @TequilaFire its that pessimistic person again, do you not think Max Payne 4 is a little optimistic? Maybe 7 or 8! lol

        I hope the Crew leader board updating problem and connection issues are sorted out in time for Max Payne 4!
        In the meantime my reports are still waiting for assignment to a help desk operator!

                you have obviously not understood a word i wrote of course i have had problems wit this game and when the tech probs were game braking then yes that is something to complain about but when ppl are complaining continuously about the smallest little things then that is whining...and as a demographic in general i would definitely say gamers are a load of impatient ungrateful moaners with an over developed sense of entitlement...its probably the lack of exercise and

                  @Bengy17 so people have no right to complain? what may be classed by you as a small problem may be viewed completely differently by someone else.

                  @Bengy17 oh R* we love you! your amazing! we really don't care about the crashes, not being able to play the game not getting the advertised xp! neither do we care about not getting the dlc content when you said we were! we all just love everything you do and if you would like any more money please do not hesitate to ask! is that better bengy7??

                  @Bengy17 Over developed sense of entitlement? Is that another way of saying consumer rights?? Are you the sort of person that buys a Ferrari and when you find it has no wheels says heh its ok given the time and effort that they put into this its ok? The momentous task that they have forgone i do not care about the money or the fact that the car will not run? You are "obviously" far too intelligent for the simple minions that are on here so i will retreat back to the hole from which i

                  @Bengy17 You also never mentioned in your last post that you had any problems so of course we wouldn't understand a word you wrote if you are incapable of putting it into words!

                    @_Vagg_ When you get Triple XP in Max Payne 3, there's no message that says you're receiving it. You should just be automatically getting Triple points. If you aren't, please send an email to including your console/PC info, country and any other info that might help.

                    XXtoxicFUm3sxx is either glitching or cheating. I just played 2 games in a row with him and he was invisible both times for the entirety of the game.

                      Do you guys at R* really think it was a good idea to create a place where it is made publicly know just how many problems people are having? its a real eye opener to see all of these people unhappy with what they are experiencing! yes there are some that are satisfied some are even happy but there are an awful lot that are dissatisfied! I believe its about time the problems start to become resolved rather than fobbing us off with standard customer service dribble! Its nearly two weeks with no xp? And didn't you say modders would be dealt with a long time ago yet there are loads? This is all doing wonders for the R* reputation in the gaming world!
