mphq again

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.
