Why is he the executive producer this game?

Wha..? Why do we care that Jay Z is the exec. Producer? Why does that feel like some kind of Jay Z masturbation video?

I much preferred when the music in this game was real Hiphop and underground, breakbeat funk, cut kemist etc. it was intelligent. This worries me a great deal on direction of the game. I also don't like Jay-Z and the distorted image of hiphop culture he presents to world. I may not buy this game this year due to not wanting him to get any of my money or support him, due to the detriment he has caused with hiphop.

Just turn the music off. Your $60 won't all go to Jay-Z. Think of all the hungry kids who won't be fed.

Every time a hip hop artist is said to have involvement with a video game you get so many unwarrented dislikes and protests. Save your money, he doesn't need it. I'm buying this because I always love 2k basketball, and never once cared about the soundtrack.

Personally, I could care less about the Music( as I am not into hip hop), but this video alone just feels like an ego stroke. I mean, what can Jay-Zs involvement possible have to do with the game? This vid has shifted the importance from the game to the friggin' Executive Producer? WTF? Oh yeah, now I remember all the great games Jay-Z has been a part of... oh wait...

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @hotkirby: They are.. and I think playing a MOBA lately (SMITE) made me recognize just how dry the characters are. They might have been better off with OG classes.. but then no obvious F2P model. (13 minutes ago)

    hotkirby @GriftGFX: Lol those names are beyond bad. Maybe the childeren of the devlopers made them up XP (20 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX Otherwise.. it's basically an Enemy Territory throwback. (21 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I mean come on--the girl with the proximity mines is named "Proxy," and the guy with the frags is named "Fragger." Is that really the best they could do? (22 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I like the IDEA of the mercs.. but they're just not interesting characters. (23 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @hotkirby: Well I don't blame you for that.. it's starting to put me off too. AOE spam puts me off too.. but I still enjoy the crazy bunny hopping, wall jumping movement quite a bit. (23 minutes ago)
