    I'm a huge fan of the RE video games and just brought the latest one Resident Evil 5 which features a new character by the name of Sheva Alomar who is originally from West Africa. It is implied that she is in fact African American and i believe so myself but i wonder what you all might have to say about it and also the game has caused quite a bit of controversy since it is set in Africa and the zombies are black and some ppl mainly the NAACP are griping about a white protagonist that shoots at black zombies. Personally, as a fellow African American i feel that is pointless to be upset over something like this and just disregard it because it is just a video game and is really fun to play. icon_smile.gif

    I agree... The game did not try to be controversial... But people make it out to be... They are not understanding that the different strands of virus can affect any given area. I loved SHEVA, she's awesome by the way... I mean in RE4, no one made a stink about Leon shooting a bunch of Mexicans...


    RE5 is a great game,b ut it doesn't have the same feel as like RE4... Same pacing but the lighting and shooting zombies during day time, doesn't work in the formula for Survival Horror... Look at Dead Space, there's a game that can take bright lighting and make it fucking EVILY SCARY!

    I have a feeling though, that Capcom is going to target asians in the next RE... Uh oh... Kung-Fu fighting Zombies is going to be awesome..

    I still can't believe this argument was ever brought up. It shows exactly who the racism is still affecting.
    Fucking retards in the mainstream who could misconstrue you saying, "I'm the black sheep" when you're white and being like, "Omfg, they said they were black... Obviously they're insensitive..."

    Oh... I thought its a new complaint, but I do remember reading about it... when the game first came out, and Capcom had to release a news letter stating that they did not intend to cause any issues and they had no plan on changing the game... I say good for them.

    It was a long time since I said this but ROFLMAO? The games are great, totally awesome, Chris is probably one of the hottest video game characters ever but... how can you possibly like the movie if you like the games? They butchered the game concept so badly. I only kept watching the movies for the epic lulz that entailed.

    RE is about survival. Remember running around with Jill Valentine, barely being alive, running out of ammo, trying to escape Nemesis. Then comes the movie with the director's Mary Sue character who has f'n SUPERPOWERS 8U. Seriously. Superpowers. Really? It's not even just superstrength and agility that Wesker displayed, it's f'n hypertelekinectic insta-kill-everything.

    I remember when I saw the movie and my reaction was "The fuck, who put this Mary Sue in this movie" and I googled RE and Mary Sue and got the best and most accurate review ever of this movie.

    http://www.filmsy.com/reviews/resident-evil-extinction-review/

    Still. The games are awesomesauce. Except I didn't like the recent addition where you're supposed to shoot as many zombies as possible to get a certain number of points. I also think that strays away from the survival-concept of RE.

    And as for the black thing I think it's riddiculous. Everyone has been shooting white people in village x for all this time. If they're in Africa, there will be African infected. WOW AFRICAN PEOPLE IN AFRICA 8U DAMN YOU RACISTS.

    RE5 threw in white people as well. And it made sense the mojority of Shanty town was africans since well.......they are in africa, no?
    I liked 5 way better than 4 but thats just because i'm already annoyed with Leon's cheesy character who was so badass during RE2.
    I'm hoping they'll bring back Claire or Rebecca in RE6. I'm dying to see them kick ass.
    And as for the movies - I felt 4 did a good job - really want to see it again!

    Yeah RE5 game came out like 2 years ago, I don't think there's any controversy left surrounding it. I actually felt like they modeled Sheva after Rhianna. I know I sound like a total dork but Chris Redfield is so damn hot in that game. Seriously.

    I always wanted the movie to be good but they just never were. They should've stuck to the plots and characters from the games more and they would've been better.

    Um- yeah... they weren't Mexicans- they were Europeans...

    You're a bad Resident Evil fan... Shame on you.

    Right? Claire was my favorite character, the NEED to bring her back, I was never a fan of Jill.

    5ebastian saidNext to Final Fantasy 7, I don't think I have spent so much time playing one single game. The amount of time it takes to unlock everything is ridiculously intense. At first I didn't like the fact that it became a clone of gears of war (minus the stop-and-shoot), Resident Evil is no longer scary but it does provide the most innovative graphics and intense gameplay.

    I love the game, the Gold Edition makes use of Sony's new MotionPlus controller and IMO it is the definitive version. A toy manufacturer obtained the license for Resident Evil and Metal Gear Solid, Hot Toys make life-like dolls for a premium. They also make historical iconic figures such as Michael Jackson, James Dean, Bruce Lee.. I think the work they did on the game and the character models are amazing.

    Here are some shots of the 1/6 scale figures.

    Actually I'm a great Redient Evil... I've played through 2 as a block of tofu... Did you?

    I was making an analogy to the controversy... I thought NAACP represented black people in America or African American not Africans in South Africa.

    I prefer Leon S. Kennedy... I think he's way hotter...
