I don't even know how to decide if it's an extremely brilliant or wildly stupid idea, but I have to respect the insanity of video-game developer Swordfish Studios' decision to follow up the critically unpopular but popularly popular shoot-em-up 50 Cent: Bulletproof with a sequel, 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand, wherein the sketchy actions of a concert promoter in a fictional Middle Eastern country escalate into Fiddy and his weed carriers going to war with some sort of criminal paramilitary organization. Over a diamond-encrusted skull. Though unfortunately not Damien Hirst's (pictured). And you have the option of playing as Lloyd Banks.

Those who have moral qualms about shooting up Arab types in a bombed-out, extremely Iraq-looking fake country, don't worry--the game's written by "one of the few Muslim writers in Hollywood," according to producer Aaron Blean. So it's gonna be all politically correct, right? Possibly not: "Basically, 50 takes over a helicopter via a gun to the pilot's head and 50's manning a turret, raining death from above into this forsaken, war-torn area. It looks fantastic."
