    I remember it coming out a few months ago in German, so I passed it up.

    Now that the US version is out, I've put a few hours into it and I'm quite pleasantly surprised.
    Is it still the same game as before, or has it been updated for the US?

    It's pretty gay by my standards.

    You'll probably find you get more responses in there. Silent sniper, I'm glad you have such broad insults such as "gay". I hope you continue to live in a backwards society, where "gay" is an acceptable insult. I'll let you know when we drive those blacks out of town as well, hrm?

    Yeah we need to stop using the term "gay" now.

    The game is actually quite good, first few levels are boring as fuck though.

    The problem with this game is that it is a ******* port of a free online flashgame.

    I honestly would've thought that the general population would've grown out of using 'gay' as a derogatory term. It saddens me to think that a word originally meaning 'happy' and now referring to homosexuals can be used in such a derisive manner. However, given my sexuality, whenever someone uses that term towards me I can reply with "Yes. So what?"

    Attempting to denote the use of the word gay is in itself bias. The homosexuals are greedy for using a word such as gay to define themselves, and people that use it are in themselves simply retarded. IT's one of the stupidest slang words ever, really.

    And quite literally it is a bit gay, since it's quite a HAPPY game as opposed to most games.

    Oh, but it definitely seems worth the play, I'll be trying it later today.

    But what about games that actually are gay? Not just games about gay characters (we don't call other games 'straight' games, after all); what if the game, itself, is homosexual? When you start it up, it asks your gender; then it assumes the same gender-identity itself and makes hilariously awful passes at you in all the menus, tutorials, and other internal system text.

    ...ok, so I would totally play that game. I think the world needs more games that make passes at you during their tutorial, whether they're straight or gay.

    The only game I can think of that does anything like that is Freshly-Picked Tingle's Rosy Rupeeland, sort of. And since your save menu is female and your character is male, I suppose it's straight. When you think about it, it's slightly ironic that the only straight game we have stars Tingle...
