PNG Review- 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand

50 cent box art

Publisher: THQ
Developer: Swordfish Studios
MSRP: $59.99

Grade: B

There has been a lot of talk here at Pixels and Grids about Mr. Cent’s latest foray into the video gaming world.  Some of us have been patiently waiting; taking in each new, beautiful screenshot like a cool breeze carrying the scent of fresh baked pies.  Others prepared for its coming like Y2K, buying out the hardware store’s supply of propane and saving water in the bathtub so that the toilet could still flush in a post-apocalyptic world.  Either way, we were all pretty sure that if we were still alive, it would be an event we would remember forever.  Where were you when the game came out?  Were you stuck at work?  Riding on the subway?  Standing in line at an amusement park?  Or were you like me, in da club?

Even more questions: Did 50 and Swordfish Studios take the game straight to the bank, or just put out another bad apple?  Did Fif ever get his oh-so-precious skull back?  And most importantly, did 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand live up to our own hype of 2009’s game of the year?

Guess you’ll have to venture the break to find out wangsta.

Just thought I’d let you know.

“Olmec, tell them what they’ll win.”

“You’ll be going to Spaaaace Camp!”

PNG Daily 2/24/09: I Found It!


There muh skull!

The day has come and Mr. Cent has been grabbing some headlines.   Joystiq has a bit of coverage ranging from threats over a conference call to an actual reviewJoystiq and Kotaku are also reporting he wants to make a movie out of Saints Row.  Is there anything this man can’t do?

Much to my dismay, I should probably post some other items that don’t involve Fiddy.  Left 4 Dead got patched on the 360 that should bring it up to snuff with the PC version in terms of balance.  You can find the respective posts here and here.  But that’s not the best news for Left 4 Dead fans by a long shot.  It turns out that the game got it’s own little parody care of the adult film industry.  Zoey apparently gets her swerve on with some undead hotness.  You get diseases that way.  And shame.

And finally, Fantasy Flight Games released their convention schedule for this year and it appears that they won’t be partying it up at Origins this year.
