Rockstar began a new Max Payne 3 video series today, covering the "design and technology" of the upcoming game. This first video seems to be an introduction to the concepts it'll get into in further videos, providing an overview of the animations, bullet time, AI, and cinematic techniques in the game.

Even if you're not interested in the specifics of the presentation, Rockstar demonstrates all of these concepts with gameplay footage! In other words, you get to watch a lot of Max Payne 3. You get to watch a lot of gunfights.
