Nostalgia Bytes: 'Max Payne 2' And Its Graphic Novel-Style of Storytelling

Just finished playing Max Payne 2 for the fucking "nth" time yesterday and I still found it so bad-ass after more than 5 years of not playing it.

The game which was made in 2003 - is known for its love & crime-noir storyline packed with a lot of gun-toting action that utilizes the concept of "Bullet Time", where you can slow things down ala Matrix, enabling players to dodge bullets and kill enemies before they could even fire back.

But its not only the feature that got players hooked on it:

A graphic novel scene from Max Payne 2
Max Payne 2 uses comic book panels accompanied with sounds and voice overs instead of animated sequences to tell its compelling storyline which was very unique at the time. 

And here's a my favorite graphic novel scene from that game - featuring Max Payne and Mona Sax (the game's protagonists) - in a semi sex-scene that is still one of the most hottest game scenes EVER. (its on the 30-1 minute mark)

There's even a pretty nice half-boob showing from the model who portrays Mona. Her name? Kathy Tong (aka the Neutrogena model).

 Mark Wahlberg & Mila Kunis will not be able to beat the HOTNESS meter of this scene.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'll have beat the game again, Hard-Boiled style.
