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 I checked again, their last broadcast is about 32 minutes and is about the Keep. The one after is from oct 20. (3 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @Sdarts: It's going to be the X1 version for me. Hopefully we get to zoom in on characters too. Skyrim and Fallout 3 have that, you can zoom in/out and keep the cam there. (3 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts DICE helped them a lot with the Frostbite 3 engine and they were able to push the visuals beyond BF4 in some aspects, like the water effects. And it really shows. Too much excited to wait till Nov 18. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts The camera automatically zooms out when entering combat and zooms in after, but you can change the FOV with the mouse wheel. The visuals look amazing on PC, much more than on PS4 and XBO. (5 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Moonwalker: To access the archived livestream videos, click on BioWare and then on Past Transmissions. Today they showed a new region and a new story quest (but very early, so almost no spoilers). (5 Hours ago)
  • Sath
    Sath Main Theme from Lords of the Fallen [url] sounds great to me, kind of getting that Witcher style vibe. (7 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker I watched the X1 stream again, parts of it, i really hope so much that on console we can zoom on the character and lock it too, it totally kills immersion when camera is so far away. (7 Hours ago)
  • Driftwood
    Driftwood The Sunset Overdrive Livestream will be on Oct. 20 at 9:30 pm CET (6 Days ago)
