Oh god---okay, I may've been way too optimistic about RE5. I just... I *want* it to be good! I love the idea of an RE game set in Africa, as a sort of Ivory Coast metaphor. And after playing couch co-op, I really liked the gameplay of the demo. And I do still think that a lot of the touchiness about race has resulted in people of color being locked out of mediums like gaming and animation, where caricature is the nature of the medium (locked out of the presentation, that is; the game companies I've worked for have been kind of amazingly multiracial). So I'm going to hold out just a little hope that it'll be better than this. But... but I may be wrong.

That screen shot is kind of amazing. In a bad way.

I can't stop staring at it, to be honest with you.

I hate commenting on my own stuff, but I hate changing the date on my entries more.

This outfit? Totally not racist.
