You Filthy Gaijin...
April 12th 2008, 02:05 CEST by Greg

The Japanese are at it again, showing they have no idea how to broach racially sensitive topics in games.

Recently, Capcom released a trailer for Resident Evil 5. In it, Chris Redfield is in a town which looks to be Caribbean, populated by black people who apparently turn into zombies. Which he then has to kill, or something.

The imagery from the trailer is controversial. Is it meant to reflect history? Is it yet another example of Japanese game developers playing off of racial stereotypes (ala Barret in FFVII, hell the topic name "filthy gaijin" is yet another Japanese stereotype)?

I know right! Not all seafood though, just most shellfish. I love me some fish, cooked and otherwise, all different kinds.

I guess I'm a retarded super taster.

Jeremy-

Are you taking the family to Sea World as part of the visit?

For Christmas our in-laws are taking us to Sea World and San Diego.  So I actually don't have a clue what they're planning.  If I had some restaurant ideas or other places that are fun for families with young children, I'm sure they'd appreciate it.

Jamie, I think you meant Sashimi.

If they have a restaurant in Sea World like they do here in Orlando, go to it. It's moderately expensive (big surprise), but it has GREAT food and you get to eat next to a HUGE (10-15f high and 40-50f across) aquarium. It's made of awesome.

Doing some googling, it looks like it's only in the Orlando one, called Sharks Underwater Grill. Oh wells...

They don't have that in San Diego.

You can do Sea World in 1 day. It's fun, but remember, you're there for the kids. They'll think it's much cooler than you will. Do all the shows, and plan the rides around that.

And I'll second everything Jaime mentioned in his post, expecially Seaport Village and Balboa Park. I'll vouch for Buster's, especially if you have the kids with you. If you sit outside, dress very warm. As for Balboa Park, my favorite museum there is the San Diego Air and Space Museum. You can't go wrong there.

A restaurant serving seafood in a Sea World place seems a bit in bad taste really.  Well I mean all seafood tastes bad, it's seafood, but in this case it's conceptually bad as well.

You're there to marvel at the beauty of nature, it's not food foreplay.

Ooh, is that the place in Seaport Village that serves the pizzas on little surf boards? If so, yeah that place is neat. Good food, too.

What kind of sushi are you eating that high in fat and/or calories? Sushi/sashimi is pretty sensible.

<Hugin_len> Basically, cheesy doesn't have awful taste in music, he's simply very white.

A lot of the Americanized rolls contain mayonnaise and/or cream cheese. Some are even deep-fried. But, yeah, there's a lot of good sushi that isn't bad for you.

I love the shashimi which of course fits perfectly into my diet, but the rolls are pretty fatty, and my love of all of it makes moderation an issue.  Better to just avoid it another week.

I had barbequed tuna steaks once, they were about two inches thick. So good.

jj, keep in mind a typical human body can survive without food for a week. Just sayin'..

I don't know if that advice mixes well with that other advice about lots and lots of laxatives, but feel free to inform us of the result.

I'm not coming down there. I'm too lazy.
