Max Payne 3 mechanics and features

The upcoming new Max Payne 3 game looks really good and here's a video I found online where they talk about the mechanics of the game and some of the features. I'm always interested in how video games are made. The video has some graphic footage so don't watch if you're under 18. The game is scheduled to be released in March 2012.

The video above is the first one in Rockstar's new Design and Technology series, which takes a behind-the-scenes look at the mechanics of how its top tier games are made. The video explains some of the gameplay features such as motion capture, enemy A.I. and the trademark bullet time effects. It is a Rockstar-produced video so the content is a little self-congratulatory but the video does do a great job of showcasing some new in-game footage with a glimpse of how the sausage was made.
