Just some minutes ago I discovered that ↑Max Payne Headquarters (MPHQ), the once blooming, thriving, and buzzing core of my community has once again gone online—maybe since 12 May 2005. A new chapter in its changeful and sometimes fateful history. Which gives me the chance for a little roundup of the community sites. The most reliable and sustainable sites—apart from the official ↑3DR-forums—of the MP-community have been the German ones: ↑Max Payne Area and ↑Max Payne Zone. And those still are quite active, but ↑Max Payne Source, once the hopeful substitute for then vanished MPHQ, idles. ↑Payne Reactor at the moment still undergoes a series of changes, but its interactive side has seen a magnificent rebirth in the form of ↑Max Payne Forums. ↑Deep Six still is going strong, but can not be reached sometimes—or is that just me? Now to the next generation: ↑AlanWAKE.net grows promising, now having 47 registered members—the ‘most users ever online’ suddenly jumped from 21 to 118. ↑WakeReactor and ↑Alan Wake Zone are still in the making.
