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?

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.

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

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

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.

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).

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.

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.

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!"
