Popular TV arbiter Judge Mathis is teaming up with a Hollywood filmmaker to create a new open-world shooter called Mathis "Detroit" Street Judge.

Popular TV arbiter Judge Mathis is teaming up with a Hollywood filmmaker to create a new open-world shooter called Mathis "Detroit" Street Judge.

"I see this game as a way for young players to be part of the glamorous thug life that is so popular in the hip-hop culture without them actually indulging in the life," said Judge Mathis on his recently revealed foray into the video game space. The game, called Mathis "Detroit" Street Judge (why Detroit is in quotations we're not sure), will place players in the role of a recently released convict known as La-Ron Washington, who must stay out of trouble, or face the justice system. Mathis and co-creator Matty Rich mention in an interview with Yahoo that the game will play similarly to games like GTAIV. The game will supposedly give gamers "the choice between good and bad through in-game video sequences and narration, [and] the Judge will be the source of reason for gamers."

On how the gameplay will coincide with the justice system in the game, Judge Mathis had this to say:

The main difference between our game and Grand Theft Auto is that players will have to deal with the justice system and consequences for their actions. When you go to prison, you gain credibility when you come back on the streets. On the other hand, when you go to prison you can also be raped. So take your chances. We may see young people who make the wrong choice and go to prison and are assaulted repeatedly (in this game).

The game is currently slated for release by the end of the year on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
