That's still racist, only giving the option for reversed racism. It should be

[White lead/White enemies] Black lead/Black enemies

They show things like this all the damn time in movies I don't see what the problem is. They need to back the hell off.

I'm black and I don't have an issue with it in the slightest.

Maybe it's the bourbon talking, but I think I'm onto something here.

I'm being dead serious here - this makes a lot of sense. :lol

As a lesbian, I find it racist.:lol
I think its more xenophobic than racist. I think xenophobia is not very offensive to anyone. RE4 was too.

Replace Leon with chris and replace the ganados with angry black djimon donshou (actor from the island, gladiator, never back down) lookalikes, and you have resident evil 5.

I can already imagine what the boss fights will be like. A big gorilla, a black wesker, a little gary coleman kinda villain like that spanish salazar, just kidding:D

and obviously, you should be able to switch the main character as well.

Chris' alternate version is Carl Weathers

Black zombies or ganado getting killed by Chris, can't be racist, because they're minds have deteriorated so much, I'm sure they would have no concept of race or racism anymore. And I don't think Christ can't just pick and choose his battles. If group A of ganados is rushing towards him, and they're all white, and group B is coming up from behind him, and they're all black, I don't think he would think, "Well, I better shoot these black dudes, cuz they have glocks...I guess?"

How did you get the 360 controller to work with your PS3?

Pretty much.

I agree that Chris looks too big, they should really consider changing that. He looks like a wrestler.

Also, this racism thing is ridiculous. The first three Resident Evil games had you killing strictly white zombies, so why make a fuss now?

Many games now-a-days show visual indications of where you've shot an enemy e.g. Bioshock, Metal Gear games, Killzone 2 etc. I could think of more if you need. A game like RE5 in particular it fits well considering the loose fabric clothing they wear

So, three days and no ISO/VOBs yet? How disappointing...

Also, biohazard archives on the desk? Isn't that...comforting?

Rainbow Six has this as well.
