Downtempo Grooves with Rogue Warrior

Hip-hop!

Having just watched this mind-blowing YouTube clip of Mickey Rourke soundbites set to music that plays over the end credits for Rogue Warrior, Jeff is currently in a dead sprint to the closest game shop to pick up a copy. Me, I'm just speechless. No words. No words to describe it. Poetry! They should've sent a poet.

Interesting.  Yeah, it's pretty good.  If only due to all the cursing Mickey does to mellow beats.  Quick look in the works?

ok.

Awesome. There needs to be a whole album.

Wait, Rogue Warrior already came out?

Johnny Handsome in the house.
 
This seriously needs to be the new Giant Bombcast theme, and the song behind every end-game credits from now on.
 
The game actually looks okay, about on par with the other Soldier of Fortune games, which this basically is anyway.  Kind of like that Punisher game from a few years ago (not that online fps piece of shit from this year).

I bet this game a few days ago and I knew the credits song was going to get some sort of attention.

Awesome! Quick Look! Quick LOOOOOK!

What the awesome.

Posted by TheKidNixon

This game only has six voice actors total? No wait...seven.

Posted by MildMolasses

That's some smooth shit. Is the whole game as good as this OG shit sounds?

executive chef? kenny mcdonald you're awesome

Posted by Kratch

Thank you, sincerely, for posting this.  It made my evening.

Posted by RiddleBrother

Also, why does the executive chef get a higher listing in the credits than the VO talent?

the only thing that could make this better is Keith David

On it's own, this is great, but I would not touch a game where the protagonist talks like that with a ten foot pole. I hate games/movies where the protagonist is an asshole, and this guy sounds like Asshole in Chief.

This makes me think of Sonic The Hedgehog for some reason. Man, Sonic would win all of us back if he was voiced by Mickey Rourke and cussed. "Goddamn Cocksucking Commie Motherfuckers!" being uttered by Sonic after being hit and losing all your rings would be priceless.

Fuckin' Ninja Style....

I want to DL this for my ringtone.  NOW!  Just gotta figure out how.

Posted by hopterque

This game is fucking TERRIBLE. I can't believe bethesda pushed out this shovelware.

Posted by JeffGoldblum

Heres hoping for a Quick Look.

Posted by hopterque

It'll be a long and painful quick look, the game is complete garbage.

Posted by teh_destroyer

yo fiddy, check out this pimp ass beat!

Posted by buzz_killington

I looked up the game on YouTube and... man it looks like a PS2 game. But whatever, it's got Mickey Rourke in it so I'll snatch it when it's $9.99 (in three months).

All i was picturin was him as Marv from Sin City...awesome picture i had in my head right there.

Posted by dancingpolkabear

I must get this game now, I don't care if it's average, as long as the main character is as badass as he sounds

Posted by Winternet

Oh my god! * leaving the house and starting a dead sprint to the closest game shop to pick up a copy*

But that can be said about everything.
 
Go check out the James Patterson books on tape.  Kieth David reads them and is a pimp Alex Cross.

this game has gotten consistent 3.0 on another gaming site. the only reason i trust it is that most of the users  on the PC section of that site are pretty savvy when it comes to whether or not a game is good. so far their reviews have been atrocious.

QL,QL,QL!

If you buy this game on the merits of the credits you are gonna be fucking pissed.  This game is one of the worst pieces of garbage ever put out.  I bought it but, this review sums up the game the best.

The profanity is worse than Kane and Lynch. Now I'm not really offended by excessive profanity, but it does get annoying after a while.

Posted by DJGhostmare

Sounds like if Buck 65 did Gangsta Rap.

Not nearly as bad as Kane and Lynch in my ears. Though, that might mostly be because of the tone. 
 
Kane and Lynch: They said profanity every three seconds because they were constantly in deep shit. 
Rogue Warrior: Says profanity because of sheer badassery. 
 
It's like how different it is when you say 'Oh, it's you!' in different tones. 
 
Suprised and happy!: "Oh, it's you!" 
Angry: "Oh, it's you!" 
Sexy: "Oh, it's you!"
