    Not liking Tommy's new voice. Sounds too growly, too different. :(

    Confused, which is often these days, but when they say not actual gameplay do they mean everything in the trailer is from in-game cutscenes or that it's a pre-rendered trailer?

    I'm thinking it's the former, but not sure.

    If it actually looks like that and doesn't run like a turd then wow, hats down and low bows to them, since it does look amazing...

    It's clear to me now that this game will be a true remake. I wouldn't be surprised if they change a lot from the story too. As for the voices, with all the changes, I think it would have been awkward to have the old voices and it probably would have been a technical nightmare too. I can't say I dislike the new actors from the little I've seen, but one thing is sure they amped the "mobsterness" by a LOT, especially on Tommy, but likely other characters as well. :D

    Every rumor I've seen indicates this is a "new" game, not just a refreshed experience. (same story with some new missions) Those pics are supposedly what the new game looks like. All Mafia games just use the game engine, maxed out, for cut-scenes, IIRC, don't they? It's not playing pre-rendered CG files. At least I don't think it is.

    I think so, the cut-scenes are the best part of Mafia 3. And they will likely use some advanced face motion cap in this one too, hence why the new voices with new actors etc.

    Hmm, still not sure about this one. The visuals are very pretty, sure, but I don't know about the "extended" story. I love the original game, it's one of my all time favourite early-teenhood games (I was twelve when it came out), and I don't want them to mess up the story an characters. As for Tommy's voice, the game is getting new Czech dubbing, so I will wait for comparisons there.

    I'm guardedly optimistic as well.

    Lots of games get remade and I'm not terribly invested in caring. Many just get graphics bumps and minor enhancements that are nice, but if I already played it, I'm not compelled to play again, simply for that. (mafia 2, etc) Some get really great remakes like the Command & Conquer one. Love that. "Faithful" yet massively improved. It was something I was hoping might happen and great to see that it did.

    But this game. Mafia. This is literally one of a mere handful of games I've really wanted to see remade, for probably 12+ years now. But not just what they did with Mafia 2's re-release, I wouldn't much care if that's what this was. I've always wanted Mafia completely rebuilt from the ground up using current, next-gen, advanced graphics and game physics. But the same basic story. Maybe add some additional content on the side.

    They seem to be doing what I've always wanted. I honestly can't believe it. It will be the biggest letdown for me in a long time if they manage to screw this up.

    Noticed there has been an patch for both games.

    I only have Mafia 2 and the notes don't mention much at all for the PC and the only difference i can see is a PhysX option that i'm sure wasn't there before.
    Don't think it's using GPU PhysX in the traditional sense though as the indicator doesn't kick in.

    Off and Medium is pretty much identical on the benchmarks (82.1 v 82.9fps average) but going to high drops this away doing with 38fps. I don't know if the performance hit will be better for those with a decent GPU.

    Not got any further than the benchmark so don't know if any of the little bugs have been fixed.

    I'm okay with it being delayed.
    One, if they need to the extra time, I'd rather they take it instead of rushing out the game before it's ready.
    And two, Serious Sam 4 comes out in August... this will give me time to play it. :D

    Finally a gameplay trailer! :D Game looks amazing!

    Looking at the gameplay footage, it looks like cloth physics is in. I don't know if it's using PhysX though.

    Yep, looks very, very good. I just hope it runs as good as it looks and is not bug ridden. I'm still on the verge on deciding to pre-order or not, but given Hangar13's reputation, it would be much, much wiser not to. I just hope I can resist... :rolleyes:

    Nice extended play vids here:

    Part 1:

    Part 2:

    Looking pretty good. Although some of the character's faces look odd and really washed out. Might be the new lighting model? What was a 'on my radar' has pretty much turned into a 'must have' game. :)

    All that is used in this game, tech wise, is still current gen, and the work that they‘ve put into it it’s quite impressive! I am really waiting for this one, and I don’t have any other game to play atm :D

    I loved the first Mafia and this looks GREAT. Hopefully there will be a discount for previous game owners and we can finally play the other 2 games back to back.

    Pandemic, Work or School From Home, time saved on traveling = more time for games and babes.
