MC Hammer Working On A "Secret Project" With Activision?


MC Hammer, the baggy-pants icon of the 90s, is threatening to hurt us with some kind of "secret deal" with Activision [http://www.activision.com].

The rumor got its start on Hammer's own Twitter [http://twitter.com/MChammer?page=1] page, where on December 14 he wrote, "I got one day to recover ,then it's LA to Activision to get a glance of a top secrete[sic] project on Monday...Cannot wait !!!" What's the "secrete" project? Nobody knows, but earlier today he followed up with another Twitter, writing, "Activision was fantastic ...action !"

Not much sport in poking fun at Hammer's secretions, I suppose - Twitter is more about brevity than accuracy, after all - but what could he be working on at Activision? His music doesn't strike me as particularly well-suited to a 50 Cent: Blood on the Sand [http://www.guitarhero.com] out of its plan, any kind of uniquely horrendous hip-hop crossover project is out of the question. Could that mean Hammer's getting a title of his own?

We've dropped a line to Activision to inquire, but there's no harm in some idle speculation while we wait for an answer. My own guess: You start by winning the game as a maxed-out character with high-level equipment, and then have 30 hours of real-time to blow it all and work your way back to level one, at which point you'll be equipped with nothing but a dirty shirt, baggy pants made of burlap and an autographed photo of Ice-T.

No matter how you look at it, there's really only one thing to be said: Please Hammer, Don't Make This Game.

Thanks to Destructoid [http://www.destructoid.com/what-is-mc-hammer-doing-with-activision--114646.phtml] for the warning.

It'll be a Max Payne-esque shooter. But instead of Bullet Time, you'll go into Hammer Time.

I've never much cared for the habit of saying someone has "won" a forum thread, but...

Damn, son.

It's a crossover fighting game
Fiddy vs. Hammer

Featuring Eminem and DMX as unlockables.

Everyone's special is to pull out a 9mm and shoot the other guy 9 times

So was thinking of that quote. ;)

I just wonder how they're gonna do the ripple effect on his trousers.

Oh and if any of you never caught the stunning cartoon series : here it is [http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=w8WYh8uz3pQ]

Seriously I don't care whether this game is the worst thing since Legendary, I'm going to play it.

Please, please, we were all thinking it. It's just that I was the first fellow to come along and say it.

Don't be so modest - a quick wit is one of the best traits of a good humourist.
