Getting a review?

#1 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

This game looks like a load of fun and I can imagine the GiantBomb crew will be one of the few who'd review it without a holier than thou attitude, so can we expect one?

#2 Posted by Megalon (1392 posts) -

Hmm...it's a toss up for me. I'd probably rather see them focus on some other games that are actually good; but then again, I want to know just how awesomely bad this game is. I'm sure whether we get an official review or not, we'll hear about it on the bombcast at least.

Nice troll "this game looks like a load of fun" , one of your best trolls yet today so far!

This kid grows out his finger nails long enough to interfere with playing fake plastic guitar - I just assumed he really does think it looks fun.

What makes it look not fun?

#6 Posted by RHCPfan24 (8610 posts) -

I honestly hope they cover this. And with the crew, mainly Jeff, being fans of hip-hop and rap, they will want to review this one. No matter if they take the serious or freewheeling approach (I expect the latter), we can all expect it to be one great video review.

Well do you mean fun in a "haha this game is ridiculously bad just like the first one" way, or do you mean like "wow this is a fun and high-quality game".

Fun as in i'm playing as Fiddy Cent blowing up Arabs and being like 'Fuck yeah, i'm 50 Cent motherfucker!' in a game that looks like a more arcadey, tongue-in-cheek Gears of War.

I might rent this game depending if Jeff's review gets posted today.

Thinking the game looks fun is not trolling; what you're doing is trolling.
From what I've heard, the game really could end up being a decent game.

Haha, from Jeff's review that didn't get fully uploaded says:

There are moments of questionable quality sprinkled throughout 50 Cent's latest video game adventure, but if you're looking for something silly and totally over-the-top, Blood on the Sand is actually kind of hilarious. 

#12 Posted by tekmojo (2298 posts) -

I wouldn't buy this game even if it got a 5/5. 50 Cent should go back to making albums like Power of the Dollar, hell go make some kind of music that doesn't entirely suck before you pump out another game.

see he is trying to be emo ironic/funny.  And it's phailling harder than an IGN review from that kid w/ the glasses who always tries to make nerd jokes.

No. I just think that concept sounds fun to play. It's funny how you always comment on other people not being funny when you yourself are the most arrogantly humourless poster i've seen in a while.
#18 Edited by JonathanMoore (1858 posts) -

...Well, they reviewed it, and gave it a better than Average score. So whaddya know, maybe its worth a once-through, however I won't be giving it the chance, too many better games to play.

-- God Bless.

whoah slow down there buday.  First of all you are LYING.   It's obvious you are constantly *trying* to be funny, always starting new threads about your fingernails, or cheezey games etc...   I'd say  your whole persona of being this emo goth boy is likely FAKE as well, and I suspect you of having alt accounts so you can have conversations w/ yourself.

I don't post new threads every day w/ attempts at humor like you do.  In fact I rarely post new threads on GB since there are already so many other topics out here, and people are much faster on the news than I would ever aspire to be, I just comment in threads around topics that pique my interest.

You are a confirmed faux topic maker, w/ faux questions like "what advice do people have for my fingernails playing rock band?"  clearly a troll attempt and not a legit question.

So just because I make threads about things you don't normally see rather than another political or religious thread, i'm somehow fake? And if my fingernails thread was a trolling attempt, then why did you fall for it? Or was it just to fit more of your poorly formatted condescending garbage onto the board?

Review up.

#24 Posted by TeflonBilly (4722 posts) -

You know, I can see myself enjoying this game the same way I enjoyed Army Of Two.
Co-op with a buddy next to me.
Seriously, that game was dogshit by yourself, but amazingly fun with a buddy. This game seems to be the same way.
Of course, none of the rap music in this game can match up to the best rap song in video game history.

Use another browser?

I look forward to giantbombs coverage. Either its going to be as I suspect an awful game and we should expect Jeff and the rest of the guys to do a good job of taking the piss. Or it may actually turn out to be not a half bad game. Win win situation either way for me cause I get entertained.

Try it again. If it persists, use a different browser. There shouldn't be anything in that review that would cause Internet Explorer to crash.
#30 Posted by Hexpane (1397 posts) -

I don't like 50 cent so liking a game based on him is not possible.

That being said, it appears I was wrong.  This was indeed a real game and not the garbage he released the first game.  Basically an arcadey Gears of War clone w/ 50 cent in it.    So I must apologize to Hdead for claiming he was pretending to be interested in this game.  Apparently real people actually enjoy this clone.  And it's got the good review scores to back it up
