Kotaku - So I finished Guacamelee, and I think I am supposed to feel offended.
Story Quality - WTF? Like this Website - No Yes because no one can research or display Mexican culture other than Mexicans, no one else is allowed to talk about it or use it in games unless they are from Mexico and born Mexican... /s It was so offensive, they just advertised Taco Bell through the entire games dialog, tacos, tacos and tacos! All the characters just made fun of Mexicans also with border crossing jokes... /s I can't believe how long that crap is, such a stupid article. I can't believe how many people actually agree with it also.. I don't see people writing articles about Mario and how Mario is made by a Japanese person, who isn't Italian, who doesn't live in Italy either. How on earth could Miyamoto do something so offensive! /s
That's because Mario is white, check your privilege.
Mario is Italiano. Anyway, I love guacamole, tacos, chimichangas, and margueritas. Doesn't mean I hate mexicans.
Italian/Italiano or whatever isn't a race, it's a culture. Edit: TheFallenAngel's comment below actually does a good job of explaining the difference between race and culture.
Actually, Italian is also an ethnicity, as is British, Irish, Swedish, Russian, German etc. They're not just cultures.
"a game made in Canada, by a team mostly comprised of Canadians, laughing at a farcical luchador who gets his powers from a talking goat." Dear lord... now THAT's an elevator pitch churros, huaraches, tacos, tortas, chilaquiles, enchiladas, pepitadas y tostadas
That public education must really be paying off for you.
Better question. I am an intelligent gamer, should I be offended Kotaku can still post here?
I lost two bubbles for pointing out how terrible Kotaku's articles are and that it's curious that they never lose any stars on this site. The rating system doesn't work for them(Kotaku) on N4G.
i voted them down several times, still no effect.
some mexicans was involved in developing this game, ask them...
That doesn't matter. Bros before Hos was still "sexist", yet it was named by a woman.
Guacamelee isn't offensive, the best part of it is when they translate all the references into Spanish. "Nino de Carne" "El Linko" are my favorite ones LOL. Weirdly enough my white buddy found the name of the game not to be offensive, but stupid. I guess I kinda agree but its nothing to rage over. I personally found nothing that is "negative" toward mexican culture throughout the game, just silly and dumb stuff.
You have problems. Mental...
You're kotaku. You're supposed to be offended by EVERYTHING!
For some reason, this article makes me want to play Guacamelee even more lol.
Amazing platformer you should give it a try.
Lol. Me too,especially after watching some Lucha Libres today. Pa Parka (authentico!) Psicosis, Octagon, etc, etc!
Offense is a choice. My revulsion at another terrible Kraptaku article is not. Kraptaku voted down.
Bubble + Well Said
Yep. How do you vote a site down? Edit: sorry. Figured it out.
i keep down voting every kraptaku article i see, and yet nothing has changed. how the **** does someone get offended by this game? i mean apart from this being a sony exclusive game since we all know kraptaku isn't biased against sony... *cough*
Suck it up.
Can we please ban kotaku stories from being posted? They are the epitome of shit journalists writing pants on head retarded stories with sensationalist headlines purely for views. Seriously if there's anyway we can start a petition, I'll sign it about 30 times myself.
viva la raza!!!
Not if you are smart you won't be
I am offended that you are a Mexican.
You can choose to be offended by whatever you like and I can choose not to give a sh!t.
These ''offended'' articles are a joke now. Thanks to all the sensitive fractions.
As far as I know, you can't be Mexican without being being born in Mexico or having a Mexican citizenship. Mexican is not a race. Mexican culture is the richest culture in the Americas. Roots coming from way down the Aztecs and some from the spaniards. If you are born in the USA, you are American and nothing else. You can't be Mexican-American if you don't have dual citizenship. Don't let the government label you something you are not. Because there are whites, blacks, asians and arabs in Mexico but they all fall under the category "Mexican".
i agree but also you do know california and some other states were Mexico
Whats is that kaptaku? I cant hear you over the sound of a trophy chime. 300+ combo done!!
