…Battlefield Heroes is starting to look good?

Battlefield Heroes

Battlefield Heroes is a cartoon-style shooter from the people behind the Battlefield series, and will be a Play 4 Free game when it launches in Summer of ’08.

Though to me it looks like a simple version of The Orange Box’s Team Fortress 2 (Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, since any game that achieves even 50% of TF2’s awesomeness is still going to be awesome.) Battlefield Heroes has some definite possibility, and it’s always hard to be the price of free.

…The Orange Box is racist?

Team Fortress 2

Buyers of Valve’s The Orange Box quickly discovered that Team Fortress 2 is one of the best multiplayer games out right now.

Using class-based warfare, players assume a role that they must follow until they die. If they want to be a medic, they must spend their time healing other players. If they want to be a pyro, they’re armed with a flamethrower and they must spend their time burning everything in sight.

Though it makes for great gameplay, it does bring up one question: Why is the only black character in the game a grenade launching drunkard?

Games aren’t necessarily known for their racial sensitivity, but this seems to go a bit beyond mere oversight.

What do you think? Was the black player’s role intentional, or did someone just press the black button at the wrong time?
