Live-action Max Payne short goes slow-mo underwater

The latest live-action short from the brilliant minds over at CorridorDigital takes us to the Max Payne universe to give us a glimpse at Max's poor, pathetic life. Not my favorite CorridorDigital short, but I love how the gu...

Highlights for the time being include Max Payne 3 ($29.99), Spec Ops: The Line ($24.99), Syndicate ($14.99), The Darkness II ($12.49), Crusader Kings II ($9.99), and a bunch more.

Live life the Max Payne way, plus box art go to war

Take Max Payne out of his gritty film noir universe, plant him smack in the middle of sleepy suburbia, and just let him do his thing. Then on Thursdays, he and Frank Castle go bowling together. Sounds like your typical, All-...

Is Max Payne 3 worth the 29 GB download on PC? photo
Is Max Payne 3 worth the 29 GB download on PC?
by Allistair Pinsof

It’s hard to see your favorite series on a different platform. I’ll always play Demon’s Souls and Final Fantasy games on my PlayStation 3, because anything else just feels wrong. The same is true of Max Payne on PC. Though we PC gamers had to wait a couple weeks longer, it didn’t matter that much after waiting nine years for a sequel.

The concern for PC players isn’t the wait but the developer. Rockstar doesn’t have a stellar track record on PC, either botching games (Grand Theft Auto IV) or forgoing a port altogether (Red Dead Redemption). Once reports came out that the game would take up a whopping 35 GB (or four DVDs), people began to worry for good reason.

While the insane download time may not be necessary, I’m here to say it’s definitely worth it. Rockstar got things right this time. Mostly.
