Absolutely bonkers! Just caught this one on a Google search: due for a much-anticipated worldwide launch in February 2012 and sure to be one of the biggest-selling video games of the year, Darkness II features a Glaswegian character... and it ain't Wee Jimmy Krankie!

Character profile: Big Jimmy Wilson
QUOTE
Jimmy Wilson is a product of inner city Glasgow who loves football, boozing, belching and hating the English. He's a simple person with simple needs. As long as there are English to piss off, he is happy. And the fact is he is happy quite a lot.

Jimmy is perpetually drunk. He believes the Brotherhood [the enemy] is simply the Hated English in another form. Jimmy needs only to go where the Hated English are and make their lives miserable. Thus, he has come to New York to torment the Brotherhood.

Jimmy speaks in a barely intelligible hardcore Glasgow accent. His command of Glaswegian vernacular (otherwise known as "the Patter") means that he's always a little miffed when people don't understand him. He likes everyone and everything – he even likes the English because they provide him with someone to hit. He lives for football.

But the fact is, Jimmy is mostly oblivious – he really needs little in the way of complicated story or motivation. It is enough that he is ready to commit acts of aggravation in whatever confused manner he deems fit. His weapon of choice is a hand axe. In true Wilson style, Jimmy can’t remember exactly where he acquired it, but rumour has it that he may have found it somewhere in the woods behind his local pub. To Jimmy those details don't really matter because the axe has good balance and kills just fine.

Huge though this character is set to be, he probably won't end up being on any to tourist advert for the city!

See a video of Big Jimmy Wison in action (warning: contains violent video game content). Move the video cursor to 1min 45sec to skip direct to Jimmy, or go here.

Ah ken wit your sayin tombro but if we dont talk about stuff like this then how are we going to know the trash that children are getting exposed to in these disgusting games. I watched the video and was shocked at the level of violence as I didnt know what video games really meant now and if that is it then I would say that people do really need to talk about this more and more!! Why should we late these people get away with selling this trsh to our children??

Thanks, Tombro. It's a fair comment, but in my defence I think that it's worthy of some comment considering the huge influence video games have on children and society. There's also the issue of negative stereotyping of Glaswegian males ... or some people may even find it funny, nothing to get bothered about. I don't know?

Sorry, RR, they got that bit too.

From the Big Jimmy's introduction in the video above:

Time to make a claim, perhaps? wink.gif
