50 Cent. Diamond skulls. Shooting up the Middle East. Yes, all of this can be found in Curtis Jackson’s video game ‘Blood on the Sand’.
This is an actual excerpt from someone working on the game explaining the storyline:
"Nah, what’s inspired the title is, 50 and G-Unit are putting on a sold-out performance somewhere in a fictional Middle Eastern setting. This is where the ‘blood on the sand’ comes in. They put on the performance; the people are pleased, but the concert promoter stiffs them and doesn’t give 50 and G-Unit their payment.
So, of course, 50 isn’t going to leave until he gets paid, so he hassles the concert promoter, [saying] if he doesn’t come up with the money now, there will be consequences. And instead, the promoter offers him a very valuable gift – something that’s valuable to this particular country – a diamond encrusted skull.
So 50 gets the skull, and as he’s about to leave this war-torn country, when they’re ambushed and the skull is taken. They escape the ambush, but they’re without the skull. So 50’s motivated to get what belongs to him. So basically, throughout the game, he’s trying to track these people down and find out who they are and why he was ambushed.”
Is the game as amazing as this premise? YES.
This is going to be the greatest achievement in mankind. The only thing that could ever top it is if P. Diddy made a game where he travelled back in time to 1994 in Rwanda to dish out some vengeance and stop the genocide.
The solution to the war in Iraq.
