MMO Hip Hop Game

This 404 Gaming Press Release (thanks Voodoo Extreme) has a vague outline of plans for an "urban-based" MMOG as they announce a new addition:

DJ Pooh “a.k.a Mark Jordan” the writer of the critically acclaimed movie Friday ™ and the mega-successful video game Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas™ has joined the 404 Gaming team as Senior Executive Writer. DJ Pooh will be creating the many stories that will define the Hip-Hop Urban based MMO 404 Gaming is currently developing. Pooh brings his many years of Urban story telling talents to the cutting edge team and technology that is 404 Gaming.

although his name is fucked up, DJ Pooh is a fucking excellent writer. The dialogue and missions in San Andreas were top notch. I don't know how much of that was strictly his work, but it's excellent all-around.

Ofcourse, if you have a dislike of everything to do with hip hop and gangs etc, it won't float your boat, and I think it's about the dumbest fucking idea ever for a MMORPG, but don't diss the guy out of ignorance. Every game should have a writer as qualified as DJ Pooh.

Er Tony Hawks brought "skater culture" into video games... I fail to see how this is different. As always, if you don't want it, don't buy it. Whether or not you like the culture is irrelevant.

Would THE MAN be considered an end boss in this game?

Umm... I was under the impression that the type of people that MIGHT play this are those that don't play video games. There too busy doing a "caterpillar" or "windmill" in some dark alley.

Probley take maybe a year or 2 before they cancel it realizing they where stupid to mention the idea in the first place.

Make a space sim, people would buy into that expecailly if its anywhere as good as FS2.

I think of all the games that I actually WANT to play, but can't because they aren't even being developed. Then stuff like this gets the green light.

Anyone else miss space combat shooters as good as freespace and the like? And how many good combat flight sims are there now? Two?

meh

actually, make that a double-meh!

Can’t wait until this urban bollocks disappears from the face of the planet. Every aspect of it from the awful music, clothing, language to the wannabee wankster tards fucks me off intensely.

Clearly the game is going to revolve around serving people.

So zones have names like 'Compton' and '8Mile'?
Do I 'battle' or do I rap freestyle?
Spawns be dropping mad shizzle,
Hope my little nizzle don't fizzle
Now quit yer damn bitchin'
My trigga finga be itchin'
To bust a cap in your ass and leave you there twitchin'
Go camp someone else's m*tha f*ckin' mob, fool!

/I'm not a bad rapper, I am just overly caucasian.

I hope this game lets you smoke weed. Then you could smoke game weed while smoking real weed, and that would be totally trippy, man.
