Poll Results: August 2014

Another month, another poll! But first, I’d like to present you the results of the eight poll that ran the entire month of August 2014, right here on PayneReactor.

The question featured was “What game are you looking forward to?”. You guys and gals were allowed to vote on one of the following games: Assassin’s Creed: Unity, Destiny, GTA V for Xbox One & PS4, Far Cry 4, Batman: Arkham Knight, Quantum Break, Halo 5, Dragon Age: Inquisition, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfighter, Battlefield: Hardline, Uncharted 4. As you can see I tried to feature all sorts of blockbuster titles from various genres. A total of 22 votes were cast.The results are as follows:

chart-augWith 33% of the votes, Quantum Break is clearly the game most of you guys are looking forward to. Or perhaps we attract quite some Remedy staff that frequently visit PayneReactor? ;) Far Cry 4, Halo 5, Call of Duty: Advanced Warfighter and Battlefield: Hardline did not receive any votes and are thus not displayed in the graph above.

Also, announcing the new poll that will run this September: “What are your favorite weapons in Max Payne 3?”. Since Max is able to dual wield different guns, feel to vote on more then one answer. Two in total are allowed. Vote now!

Max Payne Does The ALS Challenge

lakefaceiceIf you haven’t been living under a rock for the past few days then surely you’ve seen a couple of these ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos. If you’d like to donate to the cause, please check out this link right here!

Sam Lake, writer of the Max Payne games and face model for Max Payne 1, was recently challenged to do the video. While Lake and his colleagues executed the challenge in a fun and original way, the Remedy community edited it to a much cooler version. Check it out.

You can find Lake’s original video after the break!

Max Payne 3D Model by Zelzaan

3D artist Zelzaan posted up these images on a forum a long time ago to show off his 3D Modelling skills. When he started the project he was about two years into 3D modelling and wondered if he could do a Max Payne styled character model. What do you think about the model?

Custom Made Max Payne Figurine by AnthonyZero

2So, back in 2012 you’ve bought the Max Payne 3 Special Edition and received the official figurine. You thought it looked good but it could have been done better? Well AnthonyZero, we known from his fantastic Max Payne 3 Cosplay, did!

Today he provided me some pictures of his latest pet project: a custom build Max Payne 3 1/6th scale figurine. As you can see in the photos below the figurine is immensely detailed. The clothes, the boots and even the weapons are packed with little details!

Anthony sourced all the parts himself. He got a professional to sculpt the head and paint it and another to scale the clothes. AnthonyZero tells me via email:

I also requested that all the battle damage and blood be painted on his face in a specific pattern by sending in pictures of exactly how I wanted it to look, so this headsculpt is completley unique and I personally did the weathering and blood/sweat effects on the clothes myself. I also made the bandage on his wrist myself and painted/weathered it to hide his joints. And I used the exact weapons from the game. The AK-47 has real wood, metal and all the moving parts exact to the real version, also Max has real boots with laces that aren’t plastic molds.

I’d definitely buy this. Can we can send in an order Anthony? :D
