Don’t Hate the Game, Hate the Player

Max Payne 3 Ready for Winter 2009!

01990990It’s back!! the gritty streets, the noir, the bullet-time, the nightmares, the drugs…it’s all back!! It’s been six long years since Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne was released by Remedy to critical acclaim in 2003.

This time Remedy will not be developing the game since they are working (since forever) on Alan Wake, so the game is helmed by Rockstar Vancouver who created Bully. The change in studio can be a bit worrisome but it’s still Take-Two so let’s have faith.

Apparently the game will retain what made it successful but will take place later in Max Payne’s life. Sam Houser said that “We’re starting a new chapter of Max’s life with this game, this is Max as we’ve never seen him before, a few years older, more world-weary and cynical than ever. We experience the downward spiral of his life after the events of Max Payne 2 and witness his last chance for salvation.

Winter 2009 can’t come soon enough for 360, PS3 and PC owners.

RetroBeats Session 16-18!

For those of you who missed them I’ve released 3 new sessions on Retroware TV. I’ve covered some more rock-oriented tracks, several arcade classics from our past and more recently a little special on Street Fighter IV.

For those interested for the next several sessions I’m going to change the formula just a tad and focus on RPGs in a somewhat chronological order. I hope you’ll enjoy.

In any case go check it out.
