Gold - Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure

This Atari Press Release (thanks Frans) echoes the announcement that Marc Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure is gold, saying The Collective's urban-themed action game is due on European store shelves on February 17:
LYON, FRANCE – 24 January 2006 – Atari and Marc Ecko, the visionary behind several of today’s most respected youth lifestyle brands, today announced that Marc Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure has gone gold and is on schedule for European launch on February 17.

Set in the city of New Radius, Marc Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure features a world where freedom of expression is suppressed by a tyrannical city government. In the game, players assume the role of Trane – an unlikely hero just looking to get up until he realizes there is much more at stake. Gamers learn and master various graf skills, starting as a toy (beginner) graffiti artist and using street-smarts, athletic prowess and vision necessary to become an “All City King,” the most reputable of all graffiti artists. During their quest, players risk their lives navigating vertical landscapes while battling rival crews, a corrupt Mayor and the city’s Civil Conduct Keepers (CCK) all in an effort to reach the sweet spots of New Radius, where a well-placed tag brings respect and reputation. Gamers also find themselves with an even greater burden – to use their high-wire graffiti talents to expose the oppressive mayor and set the city free.

“With its unique fusion of authentic urban culture and diverse gameplay elements, Marc Ecko’s Getting Up: Contents Under Pressure represents a new and original gaming experience,” said Cyril Voiron, Marketing Director, Atari Europe. “In a games market where the combination of genuine originality and engaging gameplay are highly valued, this title delivers.”

This game doesn't deserve any attention. Just forget about it.

Btw...

I wasn't aware that Atari had begun hiring Romulans. When did this start?

Marc Ecko is a fool, comparable to Snoop Dogg or 50 cents.

Don't forget the "Don't Drop The Soap!" minigame...

I hope at least a few people here get that reference.

Missions include stamping license plates, veteran license plates, sports team license plates, emergency services license plates, and even personalized license plates! In non-linear, dynamically engaging gameplay everything is photorealistically at stake like never before!

And in the sequel, New Radius Corrections Department Presents: Seven Years to Parole you get to represent your hood in the gritty, urban jailhouse with your ill crew listening to the latest underground hip-hop. Missions include stamping license plates, veteran license plates, sports team license plates, emergency services license plates, and even personalized license plates!

basically the only ones who'll think this is a good idea are all the little suburban white kids who saw it in some hip hop video on TRL.
Unfortunately there are enough of those around to give this game a chance at being profitable.

At least they spiced up their original game concept which was called, Sherwin Williams presents: House Painter!!. You start out with nothing but hand scrapers and brushes which can later be replaced by pressure washers and airless sprayers as you earn money first by painting small trailers and working your way up to large houses!!(with multi-player and co-op support)

Oh, ok, I will then. I've got something getting up in my pants, and its contents are definitely under pressure, lol.

Well, if you took "Civil Conduct Keepers (CCK)" and added in another "o" you'd get:

During their quest, players risk their lives navigating vertical landscapes while battling rival crews, a corrupt Mayor and the city’s Civil Conduct Keepers (COCK) all in an effort to reach the sweet spots of New Radius


Stay away from the city's COCK, kids!

There are a bunch of cheap wang jokes right here, but I'm not gonna be the one to do it.

i used to be into graffiti a long time ago and this game has me scratching my head. i mean, it's nice to see some kind of innovation and i do appreciate the fact that they seem to have done their research on what real graf is about... albeit with some added ridiculous situations to make it a more enjoyable "game". other than that, it seems kind of unnecesary. i can't imagine painting being all that fun in a game and everyone who's legitimately into the art form will think it's infringing on sacred territory. basically the only ones who'll think this is a good idea are all the little suburban white kids who saw it in some hip hop video on TRL.
whatever. hopefully the game is actually fun and not just trying to cash in on a culture that's still very much alive today as it was in the late 70's and eighties.

it's also sad that they have to paint the generic picture of anyone who's into graffiti must be into hip hop. i grew up listening to punk and hardcore and it was just as much part of that scene. maybe times have changed and i'm just too old

I thought the coolness factor for spraypainting dropped during the 80s?


Apparently trends reappear every 20 years or so. I just hope the tight leather pants stay in the 80's. They can keep those.
