Re: What are you playing right now?

Max Payne 3, which is a part of another excellent recent Xbox Live sale. Being a pretty big fan of the originals, I was worried the new cover system would make it feel more generic, but it still feels very Max Payne. Multi-player is also awesome, though difficult to find good people to play the co-op mode with. Also appreciate all the influences on single-player, from lifting the story straight from Man On Fire, to the clear Breaking Bad style flash-foward near the start of the game (complete with bald Max Payne). The scenes with Max drinking in his apartment are dark, and fits in with the bizarre, depressing vibe of the previous entries. Best gaming investment in a while.
