Max Payne 2 mod makes it more like Max Payne 3

Max Payne 2 mod makes it more like Max Payne 3

Max Payne 3 may have strayed too far from the series' roots for some fans' liking, but at least one thought it introduced a few cool new tricks. A new Max Payne 2 mod named Payne Evolution, released yesterday, adds in bits and pieces lifted from MP3, some of which you may be happier to see than others.

Changes in the mod include splicing bits of player-controlled action into cutscenes, adding the 'Last Stand' chance for Max to be revitalised when he's dying, arming Max with close-range execution kills, and cutting his inventory down to three weapon slots.

June NPD: Lego Batman 2, Future Soldier top the charts

Even after all these iterations, licensed Lego games are still a hot item. Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes topped the NPD charts for the month of June, beating out Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. It probably helps that the little brick Caped Crusader appeared on roughly twice as many platforms as most other games in the month. Diablo III had an impressive third place showing, despite being on only one platform.

Max Payne 3 adds cheater pool

Are you a dirty, stinking cheater? Prepare to be matched up exclusively with others of your kind in Max Payne 3. Rockstar has initiated its cheater pool, because apparently sticking all the ne'er-do-wells together and making them deal with each other is a lot funnier than issuing bans.

Max Payne 3 wants your faces (again)

When most of us watch a well-placed bullet passing through the eye socket of a hapless lackey in Max Payne 3, we feel revulsion, or pity, or even a sense of schadenfreude. "Envy" isn't a reaction that comes up much. But if you happen to be one of those rare jewels who wishes to see him- or herself riddled with bullets, Rockstar is giving you another chance.
