Is the game officially set in Spain? Yeah der...I can't believe myself. It's just the setting more resembled like a Romania or Ukraine or something...but the principle is the same, I do believe.
I don't think it was ever actually stated in the game but considering that the villagers were all speaking Spanish.....

The game location was somewhere in a secluded village in spain so that explains the language.

Everything is going to be fine with this game. There will be no controversies at all. I discussed with a bunch of guys on http://biohaze.com/
Trust me, there won't be any racism, just like Yttrxium.
Tell me if I'm wrong about this. Just because you're black, doesn't mean you already know how to run from the cops. Yttrixium, you better watch American History X so you won't be a racist anymore.

Wha?
If someone could elaborate.

Kid: Oh wow I'm being deflowered by a grown woman!
Mother: By the way I'm your mother
Kid: OH GOD NO

EDIT: That's where it becomes rape if you were wondering.

I think you better tone that down and be nice. You wouldn't want to piss me off on your first day back, now would you?

You might as well not say the words "you won't" at me. I get real ticked off out of it. Can anyone at least tell me if I'm wrong about this again?

I really don't care what ticks you off. As long as your on this forum, you will follow the rules and post respectfully. If you want to know about a game then stick to the contents of the post and don't make it personal.

I am fine and sticking to the rule. You're already making us both off topic. Honestly you got to admit it.

Moving on, the release date for RE5 is in my sig, if you needed on the game that is.

What are you talking about? You discussed it on an RE5 fanboy site. Of course they're going to praise it and say it's not racist. Also, just saying you discussed it doesn't automatically make it so.


Anyway, there was an interview recently in which...I dunno, lead developer or something like that stated that he had no intention of the game being racist.


And it's in spain?

Huh. And I still thought it was Africa or Haiti or something like that...

Resident Evil 4 took place in Spain Gungnir.

RE:5 yes, takes place somewhere in Africa.

Sure I checked it out on a "fanboy" website and evil unleashed as well(which also involves in other junk). Like I said, there won't be any racism nor controversies. Jack Thompson can't sue Capcom, and it sure won't happen because he is on permanent disbarment and a fine near 44 grand to the Florida Supreme Court

Geez, it really pisses me of. Like, take GTA:SA for example. You were playing as black man, killing mostly white and latino people, and no one said anything. Or one of characters in Crackdown is black, and you kill latino, russian and asian people as him. And now look at this...

Racism can only be used by black people. The ancestral slavery sure did bite us in the ass there, huh?

Well, if you look at the actual controversy it was not that it was whites killing blacks, but the imagery of the killing.

...uh... they were weaker than the main character, or something? I didn't see anything racist, but that's just me.
:O
Also, Gunner is one of the children.
It's true.
