After swiflty navigating the sewers, I was greatly enjoying Resident Evil 4...up to a turning point. While the game retains a remarkable level of quality, I must say that I was a bit offended by one element. In the castle, there is a puzzle which forces you to align four pictures. It reads "Six sacrifices make the path right." However, one of these pictures contains a depiction of the cruxifiction. To be honest, it disturbed me in a way that may prevent me from playing (or enjoying for that matter) the rest of the title. While the reference may not be offensive to the majority of this game's audience, I believe that this satirical reference to such a prolific historical event is rather unneccessary on Capcom's part. I realize that the game is meant to disturb you, but, can't it be done in some other, more ethical way?
Will do good sir. I tend to read into things a bit too much sometimes. In fact, you didn't even have to use that picture to solve the puzzle. Sorry for insulting your intelligence.
THERE IS SOMETHING SERIOUSLY ADDICTIVE ABOUT THE WII
It has 3 people being crucified. Being crucified wasn't a rare occasion back when it was all the rage.

^ yeh but 'Jesus' was 'crucified' with 'two' 'thieves'
apparently, but yeah it was all the rage, 2 year waiting list i heard
Forgive my ignorance for I have yet to purchase this title. But how is the picture of the cruxifiction portrayed to make it satirical? In other words how does it make fun or make light of it?
I took great offense when I played the beginning. I shot a guy in the head. Abe Lincoln was shot in the head. Capcom are a bunch of heartless assholes.

Heh, my primary reasoning for posting this was to get some discussion...this forum, especially the Nintendo section, has been quite boring as of late. In a futile effort for redemtion, I will attempt to explain myself. I felt that the reference could be interpreted as satirical since it was placed inside a castle which appeared to be (at that point in the game) home to a satanic cult. And since the puzzle requested "six sacrifices," it was as if a sacrifice (to what I don't know) was actually taking place. However, as you play later in the game, this proves not to be the case. The picture was probably placed merely because it is a well known photo of somebody dying...in this case, half the number of which was required.Originally Posted by BaldBastard
Trogdor.. the crucifixion is a sacrifice. God the Father sacrificed his son to save humanity.
Never ask a man if he is from Texas. If he is, he will let you know. If he isnt, there is no point in embarassing him.
