The Genius Behind Max Payne

Max Payne is a video game franchise that blew up so big it had to be turned into a movie. Imagine a man running around New York city. Finding the people who killed his family. An Ex-copped turned into a gun-slinging vigilante, on a con-quest with two dessert eagles in a New York underworld. This being the side effect of the street drug Valkyrie. This drug has took the streets by storm. The test subjects that were sent to kill his family we’re users of this drug. The person that manufactured the drug sent them in to annihilate his family. Max Payne’s wife, Michelle Payne found out entitles that helped pushed this street drug.

Max Payne’s world is a noir romantic inspired video game with dramatic elements. The game has undertones of a twisted dark society New York does not know about, that involves  a very dark life. This world spirals a man on the hunt, blowing bosses, occultist and even restaurant owners heads off. Max Payne has been face to face with contract killers. One of which is Mona Sax, only for her to turn around and fall deeply in love with him. Preventing him from being murdered.

He always is known as a person that saves the damsel in distresses. Max has been known to ruminate on his past surrounding Mona Sax. The two always meet up together, guns blazing through New York. One has an affiliation tie to no one. Mona Sax motive is strictly business. Max Payne, is a person that is all personal. His mission in this video game are personal infused with no money put into his pocket. Just vengeance for the pain he felt for the loss of his family.

I was impressed behind the cinematic story-line this game has always portrayed. The game was so successful it had became a movie. Grossing at-least 85 million world wide. The movie embraces the same noir style elements the game did. Showing Max in a world we’re Valkyrie is a drug used to enhance super-soldiers. Max answers the call of a vigilante by killing those that are involved on his discovery for who is responsible. The movie was such a success it has grossed 85 million dollars world wide. I myself enjoyed the movie a lot.

The person that went into making such a kick-a** video game is Sam Lake. We commend you Sam Lake for penning such an amazing game. It has resonated so deeply with us as an audience we wanted it as an a movie. In my opinion, the origins of Max Payne reminds you of someone like, Punisher. A marvel super-hero. Same concept of a vigilante roaming the streets in order to protect the morals that they stand for. Either way it goes. This video game will be a classic that will every one will remember.

 

Cerebral Apex Release Party W/ Noveliss And Other Guest Emcees

Detroit emcee Noveliss held a ceremony for his album Cerebral Apex. Gathering everybody that has a deep appreciation for him as an artist. He had a very chill demeanor as he greeted those walking into his release party. Noveliss shared his thoughts on entertainment and how he has a great appreciation for Avatar The Last Air Bender as a cartoon. He thought the movie was trash though. He also curated the movie Split directed by M. Night Shyamalan. He moved around the room, having short conversations with people. He had a look that was wise and discerning as he dawned a Kakashi-Sensei shirt. Noveliss is an ideas man, he always exchanges a couple with those around him. The emcee was thinking about innovative ways he can rap his flows in the booth.

We caught a quick conversation with Nolan The Ninja and he said that Noveliss is his brother and he came to support: regardless if he was on the album or not. Nolan said that he been knowing Noveliss since Clear Soul Force. We also asked Nolan The Ninja some questions and he shared some secrets to finding success as an independent artist. Having a partnership can also help boost your success in the music game. I was not surprised seeing Nolan The Ninja at a Noveliss party. Nolan The Ninja  came out with a strong underground break-out called He(art). The album caught so much attention it got picked up for review by Dead End Hip-Hop. Receiving mostly positive reviews from seasoned hip-hop listeners.

We even caught conversation with rising hip-hop artist from the east side of Detroit, Crimson Alchemist.  Crimson Alchemist has been keeping up to date with his catalog of artistry for a minute. Going way back to when he was spitting laser sharp lyricism on his song, “Get No Better” with the Clear Soul Force posse. Laying down the foundation of back-pack rap catching attention over-seas. Showing that his energy has always been bigger than a confined space. His flow is infinite past the stars.

As Noveliss premiered his album, I was amazed by the intricate flow pattern he delivers. His rhyme schemes are always well put together. He is the definition of a person that will be your rappers favorite rapper. Noveliss is a person that has a die hard-fan base. His listeners will appreciate this album because it shows Noveliss as a person. How much he has matured with his audience. Cerebral Apex discusses him now as a family man, still balancing out his fascination for Anime and hip-hop. He also talked about his depression slightly, wanting to drift away from the outside world into his own. Still through-out his journey in Cerebral Apex. He came out to deliver a swift, clear cut album infused with a manga he created for his fans.

 

MTV Tells The Youth Lose Or Choose

With the corruption happening inside of the Republican party: Donald Trump continues to lose in public favor. MTV has had enough and decide for a political stance. Urging our younger demographics to rage out in the voting booth. As we have felt powerless for a long time, MTV as a media outlet chose to emphasis the control voting has. Although their stance is not bias, it is favoring Democrats efforts into alluring more young adults into voting. MTV plans to bring in about one-thousand people to take a vote. MTV even has support by people of political power, channeling investments into their pockets. This will also increase the strength of the stance they are taking.

With Donald Trump not giving a F**** about global issues and mining the world out of precious resources. While also, blaming immigrants for the reason America is losing, when some of had to work and they came here with nothing. Trump also added Salt in the womb. The Me Too movement that is happening right now, highlighted him as a president in the past downplaying woman as sexual objects. This man is the reason why we are failing as a country. We was outraged on social media and did not to take a stand to vote, in the end we failed. MTV wants this generations voice to be heard for an impact that will save us for the times of tomorrow. MTV as an outlet believes in people being their authentic selves. Embracing unity and diversity in our fifty-states we live in. This media company has always been the strength of what is popular. Take a stand with our countries favored media outlet and go vote today.
