Payday’s web series goes tumbling off the rails

“I can’t believe we just said that.”

You know, the first pair of Payday web episodes weren’t all that bad. There was the clunky bit of moral analogy behind the name “First World Bank” and some obvious budget restrictions in the shoot-out scenes, but for a quickie web series it was doing alright. Maybe because the first two were largely set in the same location and featured a pretty tight cast.

Well, forget all that, because episode 3 introduces a million new people and they’re all hilariously silly. I’m not sure whether I prefer the Police Exposition Squad (“I’m concerned about Hector Morales.” “Who’s Hector Morales?” “THIS GUY [explains at length]“,) the corrupt Hollywood producer who swans around in a fur-trim coat or the growling, knife-happy Haitian fellow. Cartoons, one and all.

Still, if you want to see how the series has gone from “sort of watchable” to “unbelievable high camp,” have a look below.

In actual game-related news, the Payday 2 beta arrived on Steam yesterday.

    That was amazing. Bits of it were passable, while other bits had some of the worst acting I’ve seen outside of Z-list movies with titles like ZOMBIE KILLERS FROM BEYOND THE GRAVE.

    So much I could say about all of this. So, so much.

    That fur coat guy was Lucas not Hector, Hector was the guy that beat up everybody at the strip club
