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.
http://blog.capcom.com/archives/1116

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!

Uh oh, he's got that look in his eye...

So can we ponder this game together?

    The US release will have a non-white replaced Chris Redfield, for both the 3D model and voice files. There is no other way they're going to get this released in the US.

    he was actually quite balanced, his main point was that the image of a white dude going into some shanty town and shooting all the blacks is still an image with a lot of racially charged history and you can'y just wave it away

    Yes you can when they are zombies.

    I read his entire article, in detail, and I got the impression he was one of those people looking for racism when there is none.

    Go read Shawn Elliots gfw blog where he explains the situation vastly better than n'gai.

    loads of sites cherry picked his quotes to make him sound like a tool

    Yeah. I also agree with him a little about Cole. When I first played Gears of War I just couldn't help thinking "Man, this guy practically walked straight out of a blacksploitation flick."

    If they really nail the lighting, the way Capcom is saying they can...I expect to walk into a dark area, and as my eyes adjust I see about 10 "zombies" that I didn't know were there standing around me ready to kick my ass. I want to have some almost Silent Hill-like moments where I just about pee from shock.

    No offense, but... you're in Europe.

    This is still a VERY touchy subject in the U.S.

    Also, I can see where people would flip out. These folk don't LOOK like zombies, so your knee-jerk reactionary can go "you're shooting up innocent black people derp de derp" and you couldn't immediately call him an idiot without going into game details he would ignore. Whereas rotting flesh is a dead giveaway.

    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.

    Particualr point of interest from Shawn Elliots blog:
    While I would be surprised if RE5 does not include a few black NPCs who fill sympathetic supporting roles fleshed out in non-interactive cutscenes, I'm not counting on in-game villagers to flee their zombified and cannibalistic former neighbors.

    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" />

    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.

    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.

    I think that's worse personally. Having children there for realism, but then having them invulnerable to harm is just silly.
