50 Cent's Game Director raps about crystal skulls, big-ass guns

GR: There are over 20 weapons, but which one is the biggest? Which is your favorite?

JW: (laughs) The biggest? I guess it’d be the Fabrique MG, the heavy machine gun, but this isn’t my favourite.  My absolutely favourite is the Fabrique 249 - it feels great and is very, very effective.

GR: How does the point system work? Can you give us some tips for some really high scores?

JW: Each kill scores points and starts an on-screen timer which is represented by a bar. By modifying the kill, such as by scoring a headshot, blowing the enemy up, counter-killing, the score increases. Kill another enemy before the time runs out and you’re into combo territory. The key to high scores is to chain kills together - to combo. Individual kills, even when modified, don’t score that highly, but each kill in a chain increases the multiplier of the next kill. To get the highest scores, make sure that the 3rd and 4th kill in a chain are good ones - modified kills or headshots are ideal. Also, make sure you collect all the posters, shoot all the targets, and destroy everything, especially the cars. We score these big.

Get enough points and you’ll be awarded Bronze, Silver or Gold at the end of each of the 24 levels. These awards allow you to unlock new content such as music, videos, concept art and in-game cheats.

GR: What’s your favorite feature of the multiplayer aspect of the game? Does it utilize the point system?

JW: My favorite feature is that it’s true anytime join. It’s great to be able to start a game, play single player for a little while until your buddy’s ready to join, and then just carry on playing co-op when he drops in with no going back to the menu system. It’s a great feature.

    We need more games starring musical artists. How about a Modest Mouse platformer or a Death Cab For Cutie driving game? OOOh, i know, a game where Jessica Simpson goes to Iran and bores everyone into committing suicide.

    It's clearly got the potential to be a fun game, moronic hero or not. Though I agree that slaughtering to rap music isn't ideal. But you people saying that it's going to be rubbish because it's a game about fiddy and the graphics aren't incredible. Ergh. When did people stop playing games for fun?!

    You cant slaughter to RAP MUSIC and 50 cent can go suck on a turd for all i care thinking that this is a game for the hardcore genre we all Know and love its rediculous

    wow this is probably going to be just as bad as the last game, anything including 50 cent is bound to suck. I've seen a few video's and it doesn't look like anything, special, the graphics definately not as good as the dev's are saying.

    So it's Gears + The Club with a counter kill system..? Cool I guess? And what rapper gets paid $10,000,000 to perform a show in a foreign country? So the story line is just him being a greedy bastard and killing people because he didn't get his money..

    this has got to be one of the worlds weirdest concepts...
  • scbyfn4evr - January 28, 2009 5:04 p.m.

    Hilarious. Watching the guy try and defend this game and it's awful concept, wtatching him pretend that there's some nobility in the plot, watching him act like he gives a shit about "Fiddy".... Many lawlz to be had.
  • Fionn1 - January 28, 2009 12:49 p.m.

    Its a bizarre premise...I grant ya...but it looks really good, and I doubt they would, even though it is odd, get away with a rapper/special ops/ get me money for me gig/ murderathon with any other rapper....however.. Vanilla ice..with no weapons stuck in iraq being shot alot would be

    I first thought this game was badass stupid, but the trailers look pretty damn cool. To quote IGN's 'preview', it's the game you'll play just for the ll of it (that's not a real quote). reCaptcha: outdown firemen
