Max Payne Released For Android

Today there was happiness, laughter and dancing in the street as Max Payne was released for Android. Being the Rockstar fanboy I am (just check the games section of this blog to see my GTA collection) I pounced right on this since it actually works on my phone. Plus it being only $3 didn't hurt my wallet in the slightest for a classic such as this.

Hopefully they release the sequel soon as I doubt it will take me very long to beat it. 
I adore the shit out of this game; I literally fan gasm'd when I read it had been released. As I said it even works on my phone, being that it only runs on a single core I find it quite impressive really.
There isn't too much lag (compared to GTA 3 for Android anyway) and the touch controls are actually quite solid. Having said that though you can connect an external controller if you have fat fingers, but I feel this kind of spoils the portable idea. You mind as well just play it on PS2.

Either way I'm quite impressed by this port and feel that Rockstar need to give themselves a pat on their back. You can't go wrong for $3, especially when it's a game of this magnitude.

Something Kinda Sorta Related

Since I won't shut up about my new camera on my other blog, I thought I mind as well carry on the mindless dribble to this one.
I've spent a bit too much time over at The Photo Extremest (sometimes instead of eating) and I'm trying my hand at certain photographic techniques. For instance this one involves retro goodlyness, so I thought I mind as well post it here:

We were all too lazy to clean the room up a bit more.
As you can see I'm winning and being a jerk about it. Me's thinks I'm an asshole.
I wonder what I'm playing? Probably THPS2, I kick ass at that on N64 and I will beat you... and then proceed to be a dick about it.
