Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Max Payne is man. A man with guns. That he shoots bullets from. In to bad dudes and ladies.
It's also the name of a two game series* of noir third person shooters famed for their fantastic stories and fun bullet time mechanics. Part Maltese Falcon and part Hard Boiled, the story is told through a fully voiced graphic novel instead of the traditional cut scene.
Don't leave, it works here, thanks to the strength of the voice acting and Sam Lake's writing. I've only beat the first so far, but I figure we could have a discussion about the series anyway.
