Evil is Resident for the 4th time...(April 10th interview)

ER... 5th time..sorry.


RESIDENT EVIL 5
resident-evil-5-details-emerge.jpg

What we know...(courtesy of IGN)

Produced by series veteran Jun Takeuchi, this next-generation follow-up to the terrifying series introduces the theme of escape as its core survival instinct. As Chris Redfield (former S.T.A.R.S. member and now part of the BSAA unit), your life is in danger as you strive to complete your most dangerous mission yet in a sweltering desert colony where a new breed of evil has been unleashed. Swarms of marauding evil beings will charge at you when your pulse is racing at a heart-shattering pace. Environments will play a bigger factor than ever here, using the power of next-gen systems to create a world where terror might lurk in any alcove or shadow. Powerful lighting effects overwhelm the player with mirage movement and blinding brilliance, and even in the light of day, there is no safe haven in this Resident Evil.


It's been a while, and I was thinking that there had to be some news of ANY kind on this game and where it's at, well there is this interview for those who haven't seen it...

Lighting wows, and moody piano music in abundance.

So lighting will make the game scarier...sounds good to me.

Axe-waving parties galore...you get to break up the festivities with hot lead!

    That's largely what I'm expecting to be honest. RE4 had Louis Sera, who was the cool Spanish hero, and showed that not all these guys were out to get you but were just victims of something else. I wouldn't be surprised to see the same thing here.

    I would also like to seem him done as Samuel L Jackson, because Samuel L Jackson is frigging cool. <img class=" title=":mrgreen:" class="bbcode_smiley" />

    But Luis got a tentacle through the abdomen. What sort grisly, predictable death can I expect for my token black buddy?

    Lightningy elements eh? I can see it now. You walk into a dark house in the middle of the night, the house appears to be empty; but then again you cant really see much. When all of a sudden...LIGHTNING! and teh in the corner for a split second you see a gandos in the corner and as soon as its dark he runs for you! and then you shit yourself.

    What do you mean, "those people"?

    I just feel sometimes racism is propagated by those supposedly being offended in the first place.

    The vast majority of people just see 'Chris Redfield shooting zombies'

    A minority see 'Chris Redfield shooting black people'

    Kinda annoying. the awful homogenization of spanish, mexican and european cultures in Resi 4 is arguably more offensive.
    Yeah. I knew what you meant. It was a joke meant to twist your words to seem unintentionally racist. Topical humor, what what.

    And the vast majority of people certainly don't see Chris Redfield either way. Plus, as was mentioned, at first glance these aren't obviously zombies. Of course, an informed viewer might not feel offended. But then, since when are most people informed about anything they think is bad.

    Well, from the gameplay videos they atleast seem to be following the overall RE4 engine. That is a good thing, because I love RE4 but cannot stand the previous REs, whatsoever.

    Some people are still bitter over the whole Little Sisters thing in Bioshock, I think. I doubt being able to kill children is that important to him but honestly not seeing kids around in videogames can be kind of weird.

    You see animals in games like this. Usually rabid dogs and things. There were certainly infected dogs in most / all of the RE games to date.

    As for kids, well, who cares? Seriously? It's not some sort of major gameplay impediment if they're not there. And if we're going by zombie movie mythos here, you rarely see children or babies in zombie movies either.

    I have to agree with arod, there's no way I can see them releasing a game where you bloodily shoot down kids, even if they're infected. You think White Man versus Black villagers in Africa would raise a crapstorm, ho BOY that's nothing compared to what you'd see with that.

    I knew the context of the game, I knew they were zombies/something not human anymore but the imagery made me a little uneasy and I thought to myself.. yea there is going to be some serious controversy over this game. I still think that too. We have went from quite obviously zombies, slow moving, rotting humans to kinda sickly looking yet intellegent spaniards, to crazy eyed looking intellegent africans.

    I forsee some shit hitting the fan.

    Other than that, it looks pretty effin sweet.

    Not saying they have to make them killable. Just have them be there. Guns won't fire when targeting them. Resistant to splash damage. If they happen to be near their parents when a rocket goes off, they just stand there crying.

    You see, to me that would be even more ridiculous. They're infected but they're just supposed to stand there and watch, and nothing can damage them for some reason. And second, and more importantly, you showcase a dude shooting people IN FRONT OF HIS CRYING CHILDREN, then even I would feel queasy about that. As if the imagery wasn't powerful enough without that, you put in something like that, then frankly I have little doubt it would have a hard time even getting released.

    Eh, might just me being European here but I really don't see what the big deal is. RE has already visited both the Americas ( Gogo Reggie ) and Europe, hopefully RE 6 will be nicknamed the China Syndrome and feature the greatest evil there ever was, commie-zombies.

    Confooorm, braaain, niii haaaao.

    My only wish for the game is that it keeps the gameplay and awesomeness of RE4, minus the merchant. He needs to die.

    If you don't think this won't be controversial you're kidding yourself.

    Because this has happened before. With Hatians, no less.

    Back in GTA: Vice City, there was a mission that had you killing members of a Hatian gang. The message displayed on the screen was "kill all Hatians!"

    ...now, in context. It made sense. You got involved in a gang war that had you going after a specific gang of people who were Hatian, not ALL Hatians. And you weren't going after them because they were Hatians, you were going after them because they opposed your group. Furthermore, these Hatians were bad people, who killed folk and sold drugs and kicked puppies and such. They deserved to be taken down.

    In context, it made perfect sense and wasn't racist, especially since you shot people of ALL ethnicities in GTA.

    But did non-gamers care about context? Nope. It was "kill all Hatians." And Rockstar was forced to change it.

    I predict this will go the same way. People who don't know what Resident Evil is (i.e., most people who don't play video games) will just see you shooting black people. And since they don't LOOK like zombies (and since the game will likely hide the origin of their not-zombiness), the context will be lost on most people who react negatively.

    In other words, if "but they're a gang!" won't fly, then "but they're not-zombies!" won't fly either.

    I'm not looking forward to this. (By which I mean the controversy. The game looks groovy.)

    Considering there've been at least 3 iterations of RE4 that have all sold well, I'd wager a game in the same formula by the same company will do just fine.

    And hell, it's a better formula(when it comes to controls) than RE's previous one(and that last 4 games).
