    Everybody knows of PETA - the zelaous organization fighting againts animal cruelty? I'd like to present to you their latest shmuck, that being an interesting platform game featuring our favourite, Mario...! ...As the antagonist.

    http://features.peta...tm_medium=Media

    I've always been a massive PETA-Hater, but this is just... delightfuly hillarious. They actually believe that a Mario game promotes skinning animals because of a power-up.

    Please discuss.

    EDIT: If GBATemp Team finds this "News Post" relevant, do move it to User Submitted or something. For me it was too borderline off-topic lol.

    If Mario really does kill racoons for the tanooki suit than my respect for him has just increased.

    EDIT: The game is shit btw.

    I'd love to see the scene.

    We should also send them an e-mail depicting in how cruel fashions Kirby games depict devouring living creatures. Rather than killing his victims in a humane fashion, Kirby just eats them alive, making sure that they suffer a horrible, chewing death.

    Whoah, random generated levels every time you die! Infinite replay value! :O


    :ha:

    And by stomping on tortoises, Mario is sending the message that it's OK to stomp on tortoises. [/sarcasm]

    :rofl2: :rofl2: :rofl2: I can't believe those guys are talking seriously . This is the silliest way I seen to fight animal cruelty especially since 99% of the kids playing think he transforms into half squirrel instead of wearing the skin of an animal they never heard of. Whats next mario rides the poor dinosuars & force them to carry him around ?

    Anyway nintendo should really sue this guys as since is obviouse copyright infringement .

    OMG GUYS HE SKINS THE ANIMAL AND WEARS IT!!! THAT'S TOTALLY WHAT HAPPENS! BETTER END THE ELDER SCROLL SERIES, YOU CAN HUNT AND KILL ANIMALS! OH BOY GUYS! [/sarcasm]

    PETA can go suck a giant monkey dick for all I care. I mean I get what they're trying to do, but they're doing it oh so wrong and oh so idiotically.

    They do. That doesn't change the fact that this approach is... bizzare, at best. As someone already mentioned - cruelty againts turtles is far more apparent. That, and clear digestion of dangerous, unknown mushrooms.

    EDIT: Now that I think of it,you could use the PETA argument againts them. Skinning racoon dogs ain't that bad - they can chase you and just get their fur back. They don't really "die".

    I also like their artsy representation of Blood Money. It just screams "ANALYZE ME! I WANT YOUR ATTENTION!".

    EDIT2: Just finished the game. Not really rewarding for all the sweat and swears I've been through. The racoon beats up Mario, a blue text pops up saying "*#?! You, Mario - that skin belongs to an animal!" then "Congrats! You saved your skin!" and then your time and score. Then you can play again. I declined.

    EDIT3: In case you haven't noticed, they have another 2 shmucks there:

    Mario is bad. Again. But McDonald's even worse:

    MeatBoy is bad... because... he's made of... meat?:
    http://features.peta...eat-boy-parody/

    Y'know... because meat is bad. Pledge your alligence to Vegans! One of the website fun facts states that Vegans apparently make better lovers. Gotta try that. After this last burger. *nom*

    Warning: Spoilers inside!
