Max Payne videogame producer shoots down Fox's Max Payne film... 
Tuesday, October 21, 2008, 07:45 PM
The head of the company that produces the Max Payne video games has joined the criticism of the movie based on the game. 3D Realms CEO Scott Miller told the video-game magazine Edge , "There are several fundamental story flaws ... in the film that have me shaking my head in bewilderment." Among them, he said, is the fact that Payne is seen in a flashback scene half way through the movie learning that his family has been murdered. Said Miller, "In the game, we put this scene right at the front of the story for a reason! Saving this scene until mid-film is a narrative blunder, because the audience needs to empathize with Max in order to like him and understand what drives him."

"See? My last smoke - It's bad for the baby..."

Evenin' people,

OK, it's not P&R related, nor even Max Payne related, but I thought I'd share this news with you guys, anyway...

As of 05/08/08 (i.e., yesterday), I became the proud father of a beautiful 7lb 6oz baby daughter! We haven't named her yet, as we're hoping one will just pop into our minds during some sort of moment of revelation. But being that her current favourite pastimes include punching me and her mommy in the face, and competing with the audible range of Krakatoa, I'm sure whatever name we settle on will suit her perfectly.

Anyway, I haven't slept much over these past 48 hours, which, OK, is no new feat for me (and sure ain't gonna get any better now!), but I think I'll bid you guys adieu, and pop a pizza in the oven.

Fergle "Larry David" Gibson,
Writer, Director, and Proud Father.

P.S. Yes, P&R is still going ahead. :-)

P.P.S. Received a few e-mails from people congratulating me on quitting smoking for my baby daughter, but I don't *actually* smoke - The title of this post is a quote from the first Max Payne videogame. Apologies for the confusion!
