Ice-T Previews Resident Evil: Code Veronica - Incite Magazine #2 [January 2000]
In the year 2000, the short lived Incite Magazine sat down with rapper/actor Ice-T to get his thoughts on the then-unreleased Capcom survival horror game. In fact, the magazine sets the piece up as if Ice-T was the first person in America outside of Capcom to actually see the title, as a copy was “escorted to Ice’s Hollywood home by a representative” of the gaming company.
As it turns out, Ice-T was a fan of the Dreamcast title, along with all the other entries in the series:
“‘It’s not one of those games where you’re constantly running,’ he explains. ‘I had this other game, where you were running, and things were exploding under me…fuck that. I hate fucking jumping games. That shit makes me crazy. I want to walk around and blow shit up. But in Resident Evil, you can stop in the hallway and catch your breath and think things over. So it gives you the vibe of actually being in the house.’”
Fun quote, but I really just wanted to post a photo of Ice-T holding a Dreamcast controller. I’ll be following Ice-T closely on Twitter to see if he reviews Resident Evil 6 in a similar positive manner.
