Gaming Today - March 2nd 2009

Resident Evil 4Microsoft today confirmed that Watchmen: The End is Nigh will be releasing this Wednesday for 1600 MSP. Traditionally games of this price range have been fairly hefty in content and quality, hopefully this one will follow suit.

Xbox Press: Make It a "Watchmen" Week

All the hoopla over the racism in the most recent RE game, Resident Evil 5, is unfounded according to the British Board of Film Classification.  In an interview with Kikizo a representative of the BBFC stated that they saw nothing which they could deem as potentially racist, contradicting much of what has been said in many previous analyses. I personally think all the hell that's been raised about this is ludicrous.  Of course the zombies are going to be black: its Africa after all.  Any of the REs in North America had white zombies, REs in Spain had tan colored zombies,  and I'm sure that any one taking place on Mars would have green or grey colored zombies.

Called "Black Sheep", the mission tasks you with driving one of the Global Liberation Army (ie the terrorist faction) chemical weapons vehicles around a "town that had been corrupted beyond salvation by the USA's propaganda".

Coming at the height of the WAR ON TERROR, EA decided back in 2003 that such a mission may have been a little much, and cut it from the game when it shipped.
