If you’re anything like us, you’ve had this song from Max Payne 3‘s TV spot stuck in your head. You can purchase that track on iTunes on May 15th, along with full soundtrack on May 23.

The soundtrack comes from Health – the band, not the state of being that comes from eating right and exercising. Health is an LA-based collective formed in 2006. “Health have created hundreds of hours of amazing music for the game’s score, and distilled it into a devastatingly moody and atmospheric soundtrack album,” says Rockstar’s soundtrack supervisor, Ivan Pavlovich. “By using a band instead of a traditional composer, we’ve created a soundtrack that sounds completely unique.”

Max Payne 3 launches on May 15 on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

JoystiqMax Payne 3 soundtrack drops on May 23 originally appeared on Joystiq on Wed, 02 May 2012 23:59:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.

Completing the trio of new “royal” buildings in CastleVille is the Royal Manor, a building that looks almost identical to the Royal Chateau (also pictured here for your reference), which can be purchased in the store for 80,000 coins.

It requires plenty of parts to build, which you can either purchase with Crowns, craft, or ask your friends to send.

  • 10 Stone Blocks
  • 8 Gold Bricks
  • 12 Hammers
  • 8 Light Breakfasts

Does this list look familiar? It should, as it’s the exact same list of requirements as for the Royal Chateau, making this building all the more similar (for the record, the Light Breakfasts are earned through a general news post on your wall). In fact, the similarities don’t stop there, as this one comes with 250 Castle Points for your Kingdom, and also gives off 2,500 coins in profits when you collect from it.

Ultimately, these buildings are almost identical in both appearance and function, so if you choose to only build one instead of both, I wouldn’t really blame you. Then again, if you’re looking to add more high society to your kingdom, building both will quickly accomplish just that.

What do you think of the Royal Manor? Will you build one alongside the Royal Chateau, or instead of one? Sound off in the comments.

It seems that the level of entertainment players receive from Draw Something might be drawing pretty thin at this point.

Only a few months ago, Draw Something seemed like the hottest app on the market. Now, the Pictionary-like mobile app is loosing players by the millions. Zynga bought Draw Something creator OMGPOP for nearly $200 million in March, but according to BBC News, WebMediaBrands data suggests that almost five million daily users have abandoned the game over the past month.

I know I stopped playing, and went back to Infinity Blade II. What are you playing on your phone right now?

Back in December
, farmers were given a chance to send a virtual Christmas present to their FarmVille neighbors with real money, only to receive an exclusive decoration for their own games in return. That same “give-and-get” feature has come back around this month in association with the game’s newest charity promotion with the World Food Programme.

Here, you’ll be able to send an African Cow to your “most helpful” friends for $1. That is, a single cow sent to a single friend costs $1, so you’ll spend a buck for each individual friend you’d like to send this gift to. In return, you’ll receive a World Food Gnome for your own game as a reward for your generosity. All of the proceeds from this trade-off will go to supporting the World Food Programme.

Remember, even though you can’t manually browse through your list of neighbors to find a specific one, you can simply close out the promotion’s window and load it back up again to see a different selection of six friends until you find the one you most want to send a gift to. Also, if you happen to want both a cow and a gnome for your own game, remember that you can trade with friends. That is, you and your friend send each other a cow, and you’ll both wind up with the full pair in the end.

Whatever your plan of action, make sure to purchase and send these African Cows sooner, rather than later, as the ability to do so won’t be around for long.

Will you purchase an African Cow for your friends? Have you received one for your own game? Sound off in the comments.

Our educational journey through Disney Animal Kingdom Explorers continues, as we are taken back to Africa (where the game all began) to learn about the continent’s endangered species. This comes via a scene called – you guessed it – Endangered Africa, which is the third of five free scenes you’ll unlock in Chapter 5. We’re here with a guide on how to find this scene’s items, which are presented in bulk in three categories: Butterflies, Birds and Chimpanzees.

Red = Butterflies

Green = Birds


Blue = Chimpanzees

There are still some locations where these animals can spawn that aren’t pictured above, as the game generates each set of 12 animals randomly each time you play the scene. We’ll make sure to continue to play this scene and will update this space as we find more items.
