Default Who else thinks that with everything going on MP2 will be a major hit?

After everything that happened with valve and halo being one of the biggest coding disasters of all time, the only game I'm actually looking forward to is max payne. The full trailer looks awsome and I can't wait to play it. Get the full trailer here http://www.rockstargames.com/maxpayn...640x328_wm.zip

Don't you guys care about X2 as well?

But yes, I am looking forward to the day BOTH of these games are released (same day! yippeee!).

Shame us superior UK types don't get them until the 24th October

Don't know how big of a hit MP2 will be. I think we can be assured it will be at least as popular as the original It looks like it will be really solid. The original Havoc engine was incredibly well done, and I can't wait to see all the tweaks/improvements in action.

X2 - The Threat.

Sequel to X - Beyond the Frontier (and its expansion, X-Tension).

That game was a favourite with stoners everywhere

random point..

has anyone noticed that before big game x comes out everyone is stoked and can't wait, they're over the moon.. then it gets delayed (invariabley) and some ill temper comes in but we buy it anyways. When the game does finally get release everyone whines that it was too short and they're looking forward to game z

what happened to game y ?

well MP2 has gone gold hasn't it ?

hmv.co.uk says it'll be here 31/10

I supposed it could get delayed, but that would be ~1 month at most, not the 8 months of HL2
