PETA is a joke.

Parody is a form of fair use, even when done for commercial purposes. Don't believe me? Just ask Annie Leibovitz.

peta: 'Dont eat anything with eyes!' 
me: 'Ok, when did a cow's muscles have eyes? Fine PETA you win this one, we'll just make all cows be blind now. WIN FOR PETA!' 
 
peta: 'Tofu doesn't scream when you cut it!' 
me: 'Well no wonder your vegans, you should cook the fucking cow before you cut it! Damn amateurs!' 
 
peta: 'Vegans make better lovers!' 
me: 'Only if your loving on cows.' 
 
peta: 'You can't make a dress of roting animal flesh'  
me: 'Your not trying hard enough!' 
 
peta: 'Meat-eaters are nine times more likely to be obese than vegans.' 
me: 'Thats because all vegans look nasty and sickly and like they are near death all the time, and that there are around 99 times more meat eaters than vegans.' 
 
 
end result: FUCK YOU PETA

The controls were just awful. ...There's some irony in that somewhere...

#61 Posted by Killroycantkill (1557 posts) -

PETA is starting to come off as a bunch of pre schoolers with access to a dude who knows C++ or something. Like seriously, someone should make a game about how to be a douche like PETA.

Doh, you're right. Slipped my mind.

I feel like Team Meat will respond to this by putting Tofu Boy in their game as DLC.

#64 Posted by Aetheldod (3914 posts) -

Meat eating people eat living things , vegans eat living things , hence PETA= hypocrites "nuff said

 No, Capcom should sue.

@ryanwho: Whale Wars is actually even more retarded than PETA. At least some of the things PETA advocates against are actually illegal. When that boat sank, I laughed.

But when you fund people like the ALF who kill other people, you lose your credibilty, however sound the cause.

I don't get why everyone gets so upset whenever PETA does anything.  You'd think meat eaters wouldn't be so emotional.
 
Who the fuck cares what they do?

I think some of the other animal rights groups out there need to step up their marketing budgets so that there's at least one prominent voice for the cause out there that isn't run by complete psychotics.

You don't know much about what PETA does, do you? It has nothing to do with being "meat eaters", or any such bullshit.

Eh, I just don't get why people get their panties in a twist over something like this Super Tofu Boy thing.  Hell, why do you get upset over their protests or anything?  Does it affect you in your daily life?
 
I think my issue is I actually do know much about what PETA does.  People are just acting upset because they're empty headed bandwagoners who want to be seen as part of the crowd.  There is no independent thought involved.  I don't support much of what PETA does but I don't support the anti-PETA angst either.

" It actually plays a lot like the original Meat Boy. The physics aren't anywhere near as tight, but I'm quite impressed, it's far better than I expected. "

Yeah, the game isn't that bad! 
 
Might play Super Meat Boy now. ^^

Considering the game contains Meat Boy and Bandage Girl, two creations of Team Meat, I'm not sure it would fall completely within the fair use laws that mean parodies are allowed. If they didn't use any of Team Meat's characters, it would definitely be fine, but since they use those characters, I'm no so sure.
 
Either way, Team Meat isn't bothered by it and aren't going to sue. It's free advertising. But if they wanted to, it's possible they could.

Did you know it cost less money to make Super Meat Boy? Also this tweet from the games developers was genius:
 
'How many Peta members does it take to change a lightbulb?.... None, Peta can't change anything.'

The totally are. 

 Attention internets!: Just finished animating Tofu Boy, he will be playable in the next update via code (update coming tomorrow)

That was fast as hell.

You clearly didn't go to PETA's alternative website, www.big-throbbing-tofu-dogs.com 
 
They'll hook you right up.

The arguments between PETA members and Team Meat on twitter are absolutely hilarious:

Meat Boy isn't real, they're advocating against the concept OF MEAT? Incredible.

advergaming.

Well, Team Meat thinks it's parody. So this is clearly a case of what's referred to in US copyright law as Nobody Cares.

I think people stopped taking 'em seriously a while ago, especially when they know that some people are just in it to look at some hot ass from the "I'd rather go naked than wear fur" photos.

Man, I think Team Meat juts became my favorite developers. Everything about this is so childish but I also love it so damn much <3

#93 Posted by Kjellm87 (1735 posts) -

Did Team Meat add Tofu boy to SMB?
Ba-ha-ha-ha

#94 Posted by matti00 (677 posts) -

I like tofu, shit's good if cooked well. But damn the music on that website is ear piercingly annoying. At least Super Meat Boy has awesome music.

#95 Posted by RobotHamster (4236 posts) -
@MattyFTM: Haha thats hilarious. 
 
And now their adding Tofu Boy to the PC version, Team Meat I love you.
#96 Posted by LordAndrew (14588 posts) -
