After the link. We can’t watch it because the ever-reliable Flash is borked in this browser and we’re working on a laptop in the living room so as not to wake the wife and child, so have a squiz and see if there’s anything new in there. We’ll watch it later.

The Resident Evil 5 trailer released on PSN yesterday’s a different edit from the CAPTIVATE08 footage, apparently, as proved by these screens on NeoGaf. There’s a section in a container yard there, which definitely wasn’t in the other video. So there we are.

Speaking to IGN in a video you’ll find after the break, Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi has admitted that Chris’s character model in the game’s been pumped up on the muscle front.
“With Chris, one of the things we tried to do was create a character design that’s buffed up,” he said, presumably speaking at last week’s CAPTIVATE08 event in Las Vegas.
“He’s a little tougher. In tandem with that he’s going to have some different moves.”
“Buffed up” is putting it mildly, frankly. We swoon every time we see him.
Full interview after the break. It’s excellent: well worth a watch.

Kotaku’s posted some impressions of Capcom’s upcoming XBLA games from CAPTIVATE08, none of which were mentioned in the netplosion of information about the event yesterday afternoon. You’ll find info on 1942: Joint Strike and Wolf of the Battlefield: Commando 3 through the link, for what it’s worth. Read up on everything else shown in the US last week here.

Speaking to Kotaku at CAPTIVATE08, Resident Evil 5 producer Jun Takeuchi has claimed is was never the teams intention to offend over race issues with the game, and that no design decisions have been affected by Newsweek journalist N’Gai Croal’s claim that the title’s first trailer dovetails with “classic racist imagery”.
“In terms of the reaction, we’re in the business of entertainment,” Takeuchi said. “We didn’t set out to make a racist game or a political statement. We did feel there was a misunderstanding about the initial trailer.”
“No, not really,” he added when asked if the format of the game had changed at all after the issues blew up, saying that the claims “didn’t have any effect on the game design.”
Resident Evil 5, as you almost certainly know, is set in Africa. More through the link.

We missed this in the noise of everything else going live from CAPTIVATE08 this afternoon, but Capcom’s put out the first trailer of Bionic Commando online multiplayer.
Swinging, cities, men in power suits, shooting, explosions. We defy you to tell us there’s anything else in there.

Capcom’s confirmed that Street Fighter IV will release for PC, PS3 and 360, but has fallen short of announcing any dates for the home versions.
The announcement come as part of the soon-to-start CAPTIVATE08 event in the US, which should begin in earnest later today, probably about the same time as Ubidays 2008 kicks off in Paris at 6pm. Didn’t think that through did you, Ubisoft and Capcom people?

CAPTIVATE08, Capcom’s US press event, kicks off later tonight, and to celebrate, the firm’s released three new direct feed shots of Resident Evil 5. We’ve seen the one with the chainsaw before, but the other two are brand new. Watch for more on the massively anticipated horror game later today, including, hopefully, a release date.

According to this blog post, Capcom has renamed its annual reveal event from Gamers Day to CAPTIVATE08. CAPTIVATE08, the most capitalised event in gaming, will still be held in Las Vegas, and will still be held in May. The main difference seems to be that some members of the public are going to be invited along.
“Do not despair if you’re part of the media have not been invited, however,” said the post. “There will be many, many opportunities to catch up with Capcom this year. There will be this year’s E3, of course (cue farting noise), Comic-con in San Diego, CES in Vegas in January, quarterly press tours to New York, LA and (constantly) throughout the Bay Area, as well as some international events (Games Convention in Germany, TGS). Heck, we may even put on a few more smaller events like Digital Day. Whew, I need to hire more people in PR.”
