On Max Payne 2

The 3D Realms Website has word of the cover story in the September 2003 issue of Computer Gaming World magazine about Max Payne 2. They have posted a shot of the cover and some of the favorable things the mag has to say about the third-person shooter sequel, but do not provide any details about the game, deferring to the magazine as the source for these.

Heh, if you think that's bad, wait till you see those Mags that will release their October issues in a few days

The Max article in CGW is actually very good, a lot more than what I was expecting when I saw the cover. All in all it's made me pretty excited about this game, and seriously, the screenshots look the freaking bomb, even if the facial animation isn't up to Half Life 2's standard. (Max doesn't look constipated anymore, but he does look sorta bored while flying around firing 68 rounds out of his Ingrams, Akimbo style. Seriously, why would he look bored? It's like the man has gotten blase about the whole "Go Slo-Mo and Shoot Bad Guys" thing or something.)
I was a bit less than thrilled to find out that Max was once again framed for the murder of his partner however. Hello Remedy, if you REALLY can't come up with a better story than that, drop me a line, and I can get you in touch with a writer who'll get you a better story for pennies on the dollar.
