I hope Sam Lake provides his face again!
I bet that's the first thing to go. They will want a uniform look across both games so it'll be Max number 2 (or even a different version of that) will be the one. They altered Alan Wake in the remaster.

Please don´t fuck it up!

Follow Maxine Payne, a young lesbian detective discussing critical social issues with legally challenged people ("Mobsters") and consuming legal bath salts.
Story driven cinematic experience, PG12.

YES! Loved 1&2 growing up. I was young enough that I didn't catch the tongue-in-cheek-ness of it all and took it at face value. Felt like a hard-boiled badass.

Curious to see how/if they change things. Gameplay could only improve, and as for the storytelling, I wonder whether they keep something as shocking and blunt as
killing a new mother and her baby, showing the aftermath
in the opening scenes.
Please don't re-record the voices, please don't re-record the voicelines, please do not re-record the voice acting.

The audio was already pretty scratchy in the originals from what I remember. Unless they have masters hiding somewhere with better quality, I'm thinking they'd have to re-record.

Or is it just one of Phil's balls in my throat?

It would be real weird if they remake them and use the 20 year old audio sources.

I think it's a safe bet they re-record.

Now whether the original cast is asked back or not that's a different matter.

Remedy Entertainment has recently announced that it would be developing full-fledged remakes of Max Payne 1 and Max Payne 2 in partnership with Rockstar Games. Given the massive popularity of this IP, it seems fair to assume that more than a few fans are waiting with bated breath for these remakes. And with anticipation always comes expectations. On that note, we present 10 things that Max Payne 1 and 2 Remakes definitely need.

Amazing fucking game. Please play it on PC if you can. You don't need multiplayer since it was not great to begin with and I think servers might be down now too.
I played all 3 Max Paynes concurrent with their time of release. When 3 came out, I first balked at it because it wasn't the same style as the first 2. I put it away, disappointed, thinking, "This ain't MY Max Payne." But I was wrong. Over time, I've come back to 3 again and again. It seems to get better with each playthrough. Amazing game indeed.

these videos are just people throwing bunch of marketplace assets etc together in UE without any art direction involved and call it remake
I know. It's just a tad bonkers that these 'fans' dont seem to get the damn source they're meant to be fans of

Seems to be an ongoing trend as of late.
