… Well in so many words. After getting onto my PS3 last night to download that super short demo called Heavenly Sword, I noticed that they had the special RE5 trailer up for download. After downloading and watching the trailer, I couldn’t help but be reminded of Castle Crashers. I was thinking at the time that someone’s gonna notice this and not like it, and that was only 7 hours ago. Before we start pointing fingers, would this be any different it were a black man in the Middle of Racoon City [a fictional place] dealing necessary justice for human survival?
Take a look at the PSN trailer below.
Black Looks , a blog site, points out a few things that you should consider. As if things couldn’t get more Race oriented in video games. Strangely RE has been around for a long time, and you have been killing black, white, and yellow zombies [and red funky looking ones to] for about 10 years now. I’m not sure if Capcom may have thought this one through but perhaps the location is “not” Africa since Racoon City is not a real place to begin with, though we know it is set on a fictional Planet Earth. No where in the trailer does it say so either but the reflection is uncanny and obvious.
Maybe I should send a copy of my BluRay version of Black Hawk Down where the tables were turned in that form of entertainment. I’m itching to see how Capcom handles this one. The boys over at Behemoth made no comment on the black looking characters found in my last blog, so it will be interesting to see how things turn out with Capcom.
