So no interest in this then ? I am surprised. Loved the first two games and all the info I have seen about this point to it being a very good game.
I actually spent an hour on Mafia 2 dlc this evening (Joe's adventure) love the look, style and soundtrack to this game, especially when missions are set in the snowy winter.
I am getting Mafia3 day one, looking forward to it.

looks great need to try and pick up 2 and give it a play through.
We all know of the woeful review from EG and all had a thing or two to say at the time.
Playing today, first part of the dlc is set in winter 1945 (main campaign had a wonderful setting as well) so we have snow, classic American cars and evocative time period radio.
Hopefully it will become backcom, that way more people might get to play.

I actually played Mafia 2 again recently. It's a good game, but they certainly did make some bizarre decisions with it. A large number of the NPC women in the game are clones of one of Joe's girlfriends from the main game. Quite ruins the atmosphere for me at times.
And the DLCs were really disappointing. Wish they weren't fetch quests and were actual story missions with cutscenes instead.
Those Playboy magazines are still one of the best collectables for a game, same can't be said for the Wanted posters though.

Another bizarre choice is calling for weapons, and cars.
Really looking forward to it. However I'm only allowing myself a very limited amount of exposure to previews and videos, so as not to spoil anything for myself when I get the title.
I must say that what I've read (and watched) recently about the game is all positive.
You can toggle 'simulation mode' on for the driving, which is basically the handling model from Mafia 2. The little I've seen in recent footage certainly looks improved compared to what we saw in the initial gameplay trailer etc.

Enjoyed the Outside Xbox playthrough so will probably get it. It looks good, just not... inspiring in any particular way.
Sounds like a lot of the more interesting elements of the game are things that kind of play out over your playthrough; such as the rackets, dealing with your underbosses (including Vito!), the racial element, the different districts, the courtroom/interview cut-scenes etc.
I do worry that people will severely mark down this game because it differs from its predecessors. Which is absolutely a fair comment but I'll personally be judging this game on its own merits.

Well it's predecessors were severely marked down by Eurogamer. Maybe this will be the one they actually like.
That could be said for any genre.
I still rank open world games as up there with my fave genres. Nothing quite like walking/driving around a new city for the first time listening to the game soundtrack. Just taking it all in... before the first thing you do is have a game of tennis against a fellow EGer...I definitely did not do this on GTA V
MGSV and GTAV are both the biggest change-ups/freshest ideas in their histories.
Don't mistake your ennui for lack of ideas/progression from the developers.

The gunplay didnt look amazing nor the driving feom the vids i watched yesterday. It does look like there is some potential for fun with explosives though.

Anyone know if there's any other way to get the steelbook other than from France lol? Kind of bizarre that it seems to only be available on French stores and that the steelbook isn't in the collector's edition.
Link for anyone who hasn't seen it - looks very nice
Edit: or rather does anyone know that if I buy the presumably French version of the game if there will be an English language option? I can't imagine why not but I know that some games have multiple European versions with only a few languages on one version and the other languages on another version, like Diablo 3. Like I said I can't see why not but I thought I'd check in here anyway first

I'm really looking forward to this. Mafia II was brilliant, and i thought offered a refreshing take on the city sandbox thing. You had this massive city, but weren't bombarded with side-activities.
I liked how cinematic it was, and how you'd do things like sell cigarettes and clean windows. It adds to the atmosphere, and Joe usually had something funny to say.
I really hope that Mafia III isn't taken too far away from this.
Are there any men made out of ice cream in this

Are there any made men made out of ice cream in this?
No. And there are no blimps in it either, and there is no IDW-published comic with which to compare the in-game characterisation.
None of the things you people associate with me can really be applied to Mafia III... so lets try to be respectful of the topic and the people who want to talk about the game, chaps.
Well then there's nothing here for me
Hardly the end of the world, but no pre-release review copies are going to be sent out.
Doesn't automatically mean they have something to hide as I know people will assume, but is a little bit puzzling.
