Subliminal messages in Leon's campaign (SPOILERS)

#1Virtual_ErkanPosted 10/8/2012 3:37:30 AM
Leon's campaign was somewhat fun and weird to me. Capcom somehow mocks with themselves and the fans too.
- In the subway section, when a metro train passes by Leon and Helena, Helena asks how the trains work. Leon says 'Zombie Express'. I guess he is mocking the ridiculousness of that section how could a train works by himself. RE games are serious but some scenes makes you say 'WTF?' because you can't find logic in it.
- In chapter 2, when both of them are trying to solve the puzzles, Leon says, 'Oh c'mon puzzles again?' It is referring to the fans that Capcom had enough in creating puzzle sections for the sake of their fans. RE fans love the puzzle solving stages, but later RE fans (since RE4) prefer action rather than puzzle solving.
- Again in chapter 2, in the lab section Helena mocks the numbered door puzzle section by saying 'Just push the buttons like a little kid?' They might be referring the poor quality of puzzles in RE6. It is useless and time wasting.
- In chapter 4, when Leon fights Ustanak with Jake, Ustanak changes his mechanical arm to swap his weapon. Funny part is that how the hell Ustanak came with those weapons? How was he carrying those additional mechanical arms? Helena says, 'How could he have spare weapons in such place?' and Leon makes a funny joke by saying, 'I guess he deserves a credit for that.' This is the case with Zombie Express. It makes no sense to a serious part of the game. it just ruins the story and the game.

So anyone agrees with me? I might sound weird with this post but I am sure these sections in the game are not normal.

Also the quotes are not accurate. They are just what I remember from my mind.

None of that is even close to a subliminal message.

However, the game is not afraid to poke fun at itself. Mostly regarding puzzle sequences, especially in the Ada campaign.

This is what I like about Japanese developers - they don't take themselves seriously. Having a 12 year old boss in RE4 was just ridiculous too.

Gotta love that Japanese quirkiness.

Salazar was 20 years old. He is not 12.

Lol at thinking the story is serious and the silly stuff ruins it. RE is basically the gaming equivalent of a B movie, and the creators have even said that.

But yeah, I love these little jabs at their fanbase, even if it is a bit of a dick move.

Riiight. Just like the females in Japanese lolicon porn are over 18. The Japanese likes to say that characters are over a certain age to make it okay legally, but it's easy to just say that an animated character is over 18 so it's okay for the character to feature in porn or get killed in a video game. Morally, it's the same.

I know the part right after you confront Ada and Chris, and you leave the warehouse the camera pans up and you see a glowy green scaffolding. Totally reminded me of the FFVII cover art, I lol'd

I can't remember what chapter it is from but I like it in Leon's campain when Helena and Leon get reunited again and he say's 'Welcome back stranger'. Just a complete nod to R4.

Salazar looked nothing like a little kid. He looked like a little old man.

Leon even called him an old man, which is when Salazar then points out that he's actually in his early 20s.
