It could have also been worse, it's not like they got Steven Colbert to do his "Ching Chong Ding Dong" character for the game.


You know that's satire right.

I'll admit, it's dumb for them to pronounce their L's as R's since that's a Japanese thing, but come on, do you expect people in these countries to speak perfect English with a clear accent?

Total stereotype to depict Hong Kong full of Asians.

Really hard to tell if this is a troll attempt or idiocy. Considering the nature of all things PC, it could go either way.


TC hasn't posted in the thread since, so my vote is trolling. In either case, he deserves to be mocked.

ue to supposed racial aspects (even some of them aren't as bad as this game in portraying ethnic minorities).


Never been to Japan now huh?

It's not considered racism... Now think of Skyrim which had actual racism among the various races in Elder Scrolls. There's a Nord in Windhelm that is prejudice against the Dunmers (Dark Elves).

"Go back to Morrowind, Dark Elf maggots! You're not welcome here!"
"Get out of our city, gray-skins! This is Nord land!"
"We don't want your kind here, dark elves!"
"This place reeks of gray-skin filth!"
"You like living in this filthy slum, dark elves? Maybe you should go back to Morrowind, where you belong!"

TC, you're supposed to post this link if you want to use racism to troll. I think it's an incredibly juvenile and offensive thing to do, but it's your call

Not entirely on-topic, but the topic is bad anyway so... Does anyone else get annoyed by videos, articles etc where they always ask you "WHAT DO YOU THINK???" at the end? My first reaction is "stop trying to engage me for comments you piece of s***."

It's 2052. In Hong Kong (a major international city). You're telling me that not one person will have learned to speak English properly in what's arguably Asia's most important business center?
