Payday 2

I’ve never played Payday 2, but its premise has always interested me. The game is all about pulling off the perfect heists, all while wearing the strangest looking masks. Why have I not played it yet? It sounds awesome! Its mask-wearing tomfoolery is a theme shared by another game, Hotline Miami – one of the best indie games I’ve ever played. Looks like somebody has seen the commonality. Payday 2 will be getting some Hotline Miami DLC.

How has this never been thought of before? It sounds like a genius crossover. Here’s the (rather violent) trailer…

Hotline Miami was filled with all sorts of violence. While I never really paid it too much attention due to the old school visuals, watching this trailer really reminded me how brutal it was. I’d be interested to see what the premise for the DLC is.

Here’s some self Q&A stolen from the Steam Page:

Q: I recognize this theme…
A: This Hotline Miami DLC for PAYDAY 2 is a true collaboration between OVERKILL, creators of PAYDAY and Dennaton Games, creators of Hotline Miami.

Q: Why?
A: Because we at OVERKILL f&*%ing love Hotline Miami.

Q: Never heard of Hotline Miami.
A: Buy Hotline Miami here and support our friends at Dennaton Games.

Q: When is DLC this released?
A: September 30th!

Q: What does the DLC contain?
A: A heist is confirmed – you’ll find out about the rest come end of September.

Q: Got an awesome poster with PAYDAY and Hotline Miami in it?
A: We got a f&*%ing awesome poster. Check it out here.

So there is one heist confirmed so far, with more news to come by the end of the month. I wonder what tricks Overkill have in store for ‘Jacket’ – the protagonist of Hotline Miami.

    Hotline Miami was a strangely, satisfying game

      The masks are a nice addition. Here’s how to almost get shot by the secret service

      • Admiral Chief Assassin

        That man has balls, or a death wish, or some S&M receiving fetish

        • Thats_how_I_Troll

          He was just horsing around! Felt a bit long-faced

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Hanged like a horse :/ Opportunity missed.

        • Hammersteyn

          Hahaha

      • Admiral Chief Assassin

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    Sith JJ loves Payday 2 so much he wears his Panda mask everywhere he goes.

  • The Adventures of JJ

    Never played PayDay?
    Madness!!!!

  • Hammersteyn

    “Never heard of Hotline Miami.” How big is that rock he lives under?

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      If his hair is any reference. LAAARGE

    • The Adventures of JJ

      I’m surprised he gets any cellphone reception under there.

    • hairyknees

      Eh? Where did I say that? I loved Hotline Miami 😛

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        “one of the best indie games I’ve ever played.” See, I read what you write. Sure it’s so I can accurately make fun of you, but this time it’s worked out differently.

        • hairyknees

          OH YOU <3

      • Hammersteyn

        Not you, the guy who did the Q&A

        • hairyknees

          <3

  • The Adventures of JJ

    Monaco is also a brilliant little heist game. Definitely worth it and tons of fun to co-op.

    • Admiral Chief Assassin

      I installed recently, so I must have a look then!

      • The Adventures of JJ

        Drop me a msg when you’re trying it. I’m terrible at it, but I usually only get myself into trouble, so don’t worry.

  • Anon A Mouse

    I so wish I could play Payday. But no SP [enter sad panda face]

    • The Adventures of JJ

      There is SP

      • Anon A Mouse

        Co-op not pure SP as I understand it.

        • JJ the Reus

          Well, you play with AI, but stealth missions you’re pretty much by yourself since they just stand around. I play it offline all the time.

  • The Adventures of JJ

    When this popped up on my Steam activity page this morning (which is pretty much my substitute for a FB home feed) I showed signs of confusion, then impression and then glee.

    • Oh and add sadness on my end, Keep putting off buying the game since it’s damn huge download size and on a small time Vodacom Cap -_-

      • JJ the Reus

        Eish. I feel for you man. It’s a real gem.

        • Thank you

          But I shall persevere even if it means I have to pay many many boring visits to friends till it finishes downloading(I have no idea on the size of it)

          • JJ the Reus

            I think it’s around 10 or 15 Gig.

          • Thanks

  • Kikmi

    Two fucking great games. I see no wrong here whatsoever. So rad
