Jaclyn Jimenez – Avatar in Max Payne 3

By / May 20, 2013 / Max Payne 3, News

To continue our celebration.. Yes, it’s one long party. Nobody goes home until the snacks are gone, the cupboards are bare and that’s how the Broken Whiskey Bottles party.. We party until we have emptied every bottle.. But fortunately we’ve stocked up on everything and have a delivery coming to keep us full and happy for awhile~!

I’ve reached out to all of our previous Avatar friends, and new ones from the DLC content. Each of them respond with kind words, and thoughtful answers. Which I appreciate from each and everyone one of them. But I must say each time I’ve had to contact Jaclyn Jimenez, she has always responded with a sparking response. Her friendliness knows no bounds. She and I have had a few conversations back and forth via e-mail and chat app.. It turns out she’s quite the social butterfly. She’s involved in quite a few gaming communities, and Rockstar Games is just the tip of the iceberg for her! So if you cross her path, say Hi, thanks for being here!

Ok, with that said. Let’s get down to the questions and answers. We’ve provided the same rigorous questions to each member of the Avatars!

1.) How’s the being an avatar in a game effected your personal lives? Have you been recognized all over the place, once in a while. Or just not at all…

Jaclyn: When the game first launched and there was a lot of buzz around it, my real-life didn’t change all that much, but online-life changed a little bit. Since my name and face were mentioned in a few articles online, I got a little more attention online on twitter and things like that. In real life no one recognized me, but it made for a cool story and I had bragging rights for a little while. Some dudes I worked with called me Maxine Payne for a while, and someone else called me Jax Payne. Friends of mine joked about how badass I was. Other than that things have been the same, and a few months after the game launched everyone kind of forgot about me being in the game and things got back to normal.

Chicago Enigma.) Would you do it all over again!

Jaclyn: Having my face and name officially in a game is awesome on many levels. Especially for a series that I’ve loved since I was 12 years old. It was kind of a dream come true. Even if a lot of people didn’t recognize me unless I told them, that’s fine, because I think the so-called ‘celebrity’ of it isn’t quite the draw. It’s the fact that me and others were immortalized in a game and that we are now tied in a small way to Max Payne’s history. I would gladly do it again. One of the greatest experiences of my life is when Rockstar began doing their online multiplayer events, and they did their first Max Payne PC multiplayer event. Because I live and work extremely close to where their NY offices are, and because I met one of the dudes from Rockstar at NY Comic Con a few months prior, they invited me to participate in the multiplayer event from their offices. It was awesome! I went there on a weekend, got to meet some of their staff and see their incredible offices, played a little bit (terribly) on their multiplayer video stream with the community (I think I was playing as Max Payne Dev-2, or something like that). It was amazing and I would never have had that opportunity if I wasn’t one of the winners of this contest. I truly appreciate Rockstar for having contests like this and giving back to their fans.

“Chicago Enigma: I actually recall this match. I was rooting for you while you were shooting it up in the Depot!”

Chicago Enigma: Have you finished playing Max Payne 3, and if so more than once. 

Jaclyn: I beat the game’s campaign – after a lot of hassle because I accidentally deleted my game file when I was on the last chapter, and it was painfully difficult to resolve this issue. I ended up just going to my friend’s house to beat the last chapter on his account. I wish the issue didn’t happen but at least I got to beat the game once. I played multiplayer a few times but I must admit, I’m not a multiplayer kind of girl. I prefer playing alone and taking in the plot and action, on my own time. So I’ll admit I had my fill with Max Payne 3.

Chicago Enigma: Are you still playing Max Payne 3… or has the magic faded in preparation for GTA V!!!
Jaclyn: Max Payne 3 will always be a special in my heart because it symbolizes great experiences in my life. But I don’t think I will play it as much as the first Max Payne, which I play again every few years. With most games I usually play it, beat it if I enjoyed it, and then move onto another and the cycle continues. So I don’t usually spend a lot of time concentrating on a single game over and over and I probably won’t for Max Payne 3.There are so many games I need to get through at this point! I am really interested in the new GTA though.

Chicago Enigma:Will you be all over GTA V like you were for MP3, or even more so for GTA V!
Jaclyn: I probably will not be as crazed about GTA V because to be honest the GTA series isn’t something I had growing up and I don’t have a strong attachment to the series like many others do. I do plan on playing it though.

Chicago Enigma: If you could meet each other, what’s the first possible thing you might say to one another!

Jaclyn: I’d ask we take a group picture, having all of us at the same spot would be an epic moment. In my mind, we’re all on the same team, even if my avatar was in Cratcha Preto and theirs were in the other gangs, we have a shared experience and a love for Rockstar and our man Max. I’d have no fighting words because of that!

As always we here at Rockstarnetwork appreciate the fans, and our friends in the community! We look forward to keeping in touch, and keeping connections with our friends as we move on to Rockstar Games next big title GTA V.

Keep on the look out for our next Q&A soon!
