The long awaited sequel is here for the PC, yes Max is back and he’s badder than ever. I’ve always liked the Max Payne series and I think I may have to grab this one to see how things turned out for our old friend Max. The game will feature DirectX 11 and multi-monitor support along with the ability to do 3D as well. I just need to find a deal on it as I don’t want to pay $60 for it as we all know it’s going to be buggy and I don’t want to pay full price to be a beta tester…..
