Should you’ve ever wished Max Payne would shut up about his metaphorical demons and begin confronting some literal ones, a modder by the identify of BulletTimeTails is engaged on the mod for you. “Doom Payne”, which they have been tinkering with since a minimum of June, takes everybody’s favorite whiskey-soaked cop-slash-beat poet and drops him straight into the unique Doom video games, alongside along with his weapons, angst, and inexplicable capability to transcend the legal guidelines of time.
Not a improvement replace, only a video of me having enjoyable with testing Doom Payne, now that I’ve extra weapons to mess around with.(Sure I modified the background music in E1M4 with Byzantine Energy Sport from Max Payne)#DoomModding#Doom pic.twitter.com/Lpy3f4DRAYJuly 19, 2022
It seems to be bizarrely applicable, even at this early stage of improvement. Watching Max dance his means round pinky demons and imps in molasses-like slow-mo—because of a built-in bullet time mod from a modder known as Xortts—simply feels proper, one way or the other. The one factor that stands proud is that the sport’s weapons have grow to be decidedly extra ‘streets of New York’ than ‘moons of Mars’. Maybe I am misremembering, however I do not recall the Doom man ever dual-wielding MAC-10s.
Even the bizarre atmospheric mixing of Max Payne’s music and morose inner monologue (some weapon and merchandise pick-up messages are changed by Max’s trademark noir parlance) with Doom’s bloody ultraviolence form of works for me. All of it appears very pure that Max Payne could be right here, in house, emptying a double-barreled shotgun right into a cacodemon and feeling unhappy about his lifeless spouse. Why not?
It isn’t good, a minimum of not but. Bullet time would not really matter for a lot when your enemies are wielding hitscan weapons that harm you as quickly as they pull the set off, however BulletTimeTails intends to convert them to projectile weapons earlier than the mod truly releases. You’ll be able to see within the video above that the essential zombieman’s common hitscan assault has already been modified to a dodgeable projectile assault. Then once more, they normally miss within the base recreation anyway.
It is two nice tastes that style nice collectively, and I am to see the place it finally ends up if the creator manages to achieve the end line. In fact, what we want now’s a mod that places Doom man into Max Payne. Let me clear up New York whereas working at 57 miles per hour. And even higher, let me do it while skateboarding.
