Comment Re:Didn't the movie do bad enough? (Score 1) 73

How so? Tell me, did you return home from the theater only to find that your copies of Max Payne and Max Payne 2 had been stolen from your collection? Did you, upon mourning their loss, realize that you could only think of Nicole Horne as some vaguely cheerful woman to the side and that you had no idea where the name Vlad kept entering your head from?

The series still exists and will exist for a very long time. Your memories still exist, but I can't speak to how long they will last. The movie version can never actually ruin the book, or the game, or the events of real life upon which it is based.

I don't expect Max Payne 3 to be good, or bad, because I have no prior experience with this studio of Rockstar's. They made Bully, according to what I've read. Was that any good? (The concept seemed fun.)

liquidmetalslime writes: Here's a hands-on review of Starcraft II from the hardcore gamer's perspective at This article talks more about the hotkey inconsistencies and overpowered units, stuff real Starcraft players care more about rather than just "what's cool" that you can find on any other game review site. For those that weren't able to play Starcraft II at BlizzCon, this will give you the recap of what to expect.
