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

GR: An action game sometimes has to be an action game. Can you give us an example of an over-the-top, mega-explosion moment in the game that will drop jaws?

JW: 2 moments spring to mind: when 2 helicopter gunships take out an entire shopping mall, which looks stunning, and when you’re actually manning a weapons platform flying through the mountain valleys blowing the hell out of the enemy. Both of those moments are jaw-dropping.

GR: Wouldn’t it be better if “Fiddy” and his crew realize that a gigantic diamond skull isn’t worth dying or killing for, decide to accept that they can’t win every battle and return to their multi-million dollar tour and platinum albums?

JW: That’s not 50’s style man – “Get Rich or die Tryin”


GR: Could 50 pull off an Adventure-Puzzler in his next game, something like 50 Cent: Secret Treasure Clues in the Sand? Or is he best suited for an action game? Why?

JW: We should so do that game. I’m on the phone to Violator right now……gotta go. ;-)

    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
