I wish more games were released like this. Little to no hype, released on the publisher's original projection, demo soon after (well, preferrably before) release.

Too bad this particular game was too damn short and nothing new.

Okay Darren, you never answered last time about why you don't mail these in, but here you are again, so I'm going to stop wondering and just assume you prefer the link in the forums.

Okay, so I won't actually stop wondering, I'm just not going to ask why anymore.

The first entry in the 3D Gamers mirrors list is for BitTorrent, as usual for popular files. What's that you say? Oh, alright, here's the link.

I found it to be much more mature than the first one. the first one wasnt serious enough (just look at the dumb face the max payne actor always makes). the actors (not the main voice actor tho) were pretty untalented (I bet they took the programmers for the pictures).

but I agree, it was pretty short. thats a bit sad.

I have given up on waiting for BIS to come back to their senses and do a real ArmA 2 successor.

You know what I found dissapointing about Max payne 2? (spoilers in secret text)

In the first game, your family die fairly early on and there's nothing you can do about it, you go through the rest of the game essentially trying to get revenge (satisfying to an extent)

In the second game, things get better as you go through the game, as you get closer to those who are trying to screw your life up again, then, at the end, you get that massive downer. You end the game feeling that you're now in a worse position than you spent most of the game in, and worse, it's mostly the fault of the character you were playing (ish). You could be happier *not* finishing the final level, and that's a bad thing. I'm wishing I hadn't finished Max Payne 2, and I don't want to play #3 if they do it in case they do that sort of thing again.

Shoot, I'm sorry about missing that reply... I checked for it for a while, but obviously not enough.

Clearly your mails are being blocked. The 3DG mail server has some aggressive filters in there (it's on my todo list to figure out a more egalitarian way to get my mail, but there's only so much time in the day). OTOH, you must not be using the mail server your GSI compatriots are, as they seem to be able to get through.

In the meantime, I'll cease assuming that you are playing with my head and put your link in the story.

Last week's episode of G4TV.com posed the question, "which is better: quality or length?"

The resuts were that it's better to have a good game that's short, than a long game that sucks.

It's a juggling match, people. If you go for quantity over quality then your game either suffers from being unrefined, or it takes so long to develop that by the time it comes out (if it does) that it get's panned as being "yesterday's technology".

so, which would you rather have?

(and no, this doesn't have anything to do with that vaporware game DNF)

Hmm tried BitTorrent but got this error message:

Problem Connecting to Tracker -<urlopen error (10061, 'connection refused')>

Am I doing something wrong?

This is the second time I've tried BitTorrent and I have to say I'm about to give up on it. I'm getting around 6 kb/s download while uploading around 20 kb/s. I have a cable connection that usually runs around 350 kb/s download speed. I'm all for it in theory but the performance is utterly ridiculous.

Doh I had to set my firewall to allow BT access to the net.

Damn this thing is SLOW. I guess the more people that share it the faster the downloads become?
