Sierra Spring Break: 50 Cent II

Sierra Spring Break: 50 Cent II

Sierra Spring Break still, and now it's time to talk about 50 Cent II: Blood in the Sand. There a galery of images of course, but I can also share my first impressions with you since I attended a gameplay presentation of the game. Besides the 50 Cent character that you're free to like or hate, I was quite impressed by the gameplay, a cool mix of Gears of War's hide'n pop action style and The Club totally arcade-ish scoring system. It looked really solid and surprising. never judge a game on its cover !
Update: Added the trailer, so ridiculous and over the top it's awesome.

gotta say, visually it looks good. the story and the fact its 50 cent however make the game shit.

I don't care if its a great game. I'm not buying into that kind of shit. I refuse to support that stupid idiot. Incidently, who is the dev?

Visuals are ok.

But 50 Cent is a douchebag.


He can try to mess with Nico Belic ^^

They went to a non-specific Middle Eastern country to play a sold out concert. Everything went well until the promoter tried to get away without paying G-Unit. After a brief confrontation he agrees to give them a diamond encrusted skull and everyone leave happy. That is, until G-Unit is ambushed on their way out of the country, and their crystal skull is stolen.

To quote a user on NeoGAF--"Are you a bad enough dude to help 50 get his crystal skull back?"

The premise is fucking awesome.

Harrison Ford did it.

"It looked really solid and surprising. never judge a game by its rapper!"

Fixed the joke there for you. ;) (Although it works better being spoken than written.)

lmao that was pretty damn cool trailer
Commented on 2008-04-30 11:57:11
Fiddy still got it.

Why do devs like to kill Arabs?!!

Plus in all game i have seen, they show you that we live in desert, I think they dont know anything about a place called Dubai (google it)

Anyway, Its 50 cent game (who i dont like), I only liked his first song (In da club)

But graphically its really good which i doubt its in game footage!
Commented on 2008-04-30 13:09:50
HAHAHAHAH, what the hell was that rubbish...

What has 50 done apart from being shot 9 times... I mean, does that really make him tough...? Lucky perhaps, but this is a bit of an extension....the premise is hilarious. Taking out arabs in the middle east as well...the fug?

by Indiana Jones?

Why is that skull appearing to be a mirror image of the skull by Damien Hirst?
Commented on 2008-04-30 15:26:22
Every copy of this game should come with a tracking device so I can find and ***** slap anyone who throws away $60 for this game. Damn you "Fiddy."
Commented on 2008-04-30 15:28:44
This will definitely win the "Worst Game of 2008" award.
Commented on 2008-04-30 15:40:35
Damn he's just so cool, 50 cent is just such a cool guy. Really think he's cool. Have I mentioned before how cool I think 50 cent is?

Seriously, he's really cool.
Commented on 2008-04-30 16:01:07
Hahaha oh my god I can't stop laughing
Commented on 2008-04-30 16:36:30
wow compared to this even chuck norris is a pussy :rolleyes:

worst game 2008 confirmed
Commented on 2008-04-30 16:39:49
It may be alright as long as he doesn't speak and none of his music is in it. And he gets shot in the first scene and it turns out you dont actually play as him but as the cast of wu tang. And the 50 cent title is just a sick joke.

One can only hope.
Commented on 2008-04-30 18:34:38
Was that CGI? Then it's the most realistic looking CGI I have ever seen. Not that I mean that the action in it was realistic.
But 50 cent is such an idiot. I think he's as stupid as George Bush.
And I will lay my vengeance upon thee who will buy this game!

About the game

What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @droezelke: If X1 was 30fps, i'd be fine with it, but it's going from 30 to like 40, never smooth, constant stuttering during camera rotation. If they fix that...i'm good. (27 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @droezelke: Looks a hell of a lot more impressive than either of the afore mentioned games on medium settings and runs fine line that on most gaming setups, i imagine. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Megido: Well, a game that runs only optimal on Maxwell GPU's, and in sli, I wouldn't call that an optimised game as well. (1 Hour ago)
  • Megido
    Megido Game that looks great but runa at 30, ok. Game looks mediocre and still runs at 30, no excuse. Just shite porting. (1 Hour ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @droezelke: Never said anything of the kind, and by comparison witcher 3 looks amazing. Watchdogs SHOULD run at 60 on my rig, witcher 3 blows that game out of the water. (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke When it's about The Witcher 3, people are more forgiving. Then suddenly 30fps becomes 'fine' (1 Hour ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Megido: Sure. It's your preference, but the only thing I meant was '30 fps is not considered fine on PC'. When WatchDogs, AC: Unity, ... ran below 60 on PC, people say it runs awful. (1 Hour ago)
  • Driftwood
    Driftwood Turns out there was a mix up with the time for the live (different time zones). We'll be live with Andy tomorrow at 9 p.m. CET, most probably on PS4 this time. (2 Weeks ago)
