The idea that nobody cares about race/sex seems very indicative of privilege. White males not understanding why people get so bent out of shape (again not assuming that @wynnduffy is a white male) about skin colour of characters is precisely because they don't and never have felt under-represented in media and don't need any extra empowerment.

Why do you think a person's desire for feeling represented should be satiated because they can shoot other players as a character who shares their race and gender?

Why do you get to decide whether or not people can enjoy being represented in games? Is there some fault in being a person of colour or a woman and wanting to play games or hear stories about people like yourself?

It's easy to say representation is trivial because there has literally never been a point in the life of a white male where they couldn't walk in to a game store or movie store and pull several hundred titles off the shelf about people that look and talk like they do. If I lived in a society where I very rarely and infrequently saw stories being told about people like me then I'd be pretty happy to participate in or consume one when it comes along.

@fobwashed: Hey! I've been playing super frequently for about a week now and have really been enjoying the game. Hoping I could get a GB clan invite whenever there happens to be space!

DanielJW is my name and #VJOLPVJ is my player tag. Hope to play with all you guys and gals soon! :)

Edit: Turns out my player ID might be 32-403436. Not sure which number you need!

Pitfall Phantoms

Level ID: A91A-0000-01D2-5CB9

Super Mario World level. Two sections, mostly avoiding the titular phantoms and large pits. Based on well controlled jumps and maneuverability.

Still waiting on a first clear! :) Took me a while to upload so I'm excited to hear what people think.

Have fun!

Snap-Spike Grotto

Level ID: 18BA-0000-01B9-DE79

This is a Super Mario World level. Two small sections, based on some challenging spin jump manoeuvres, but the short length and checkpoint should make it quick and rewarding to pull off. :) I wouldn't say it's too hard!

Also there's a secret to be discovered that lets you skip the second half and get three 1UPs... if trying to find that stuff is your cup of tea.

Have fun! Would love to hear what people think.

EDIT: I also re-released a level I posted a while back called Bombshell Citadel.

Level ID: A5A4-0000-00C8-4969

I fixed how easy it was to bypass most of the level, so it's actually playable now. It's a short level with a small puzzle at the beginning and a bit of precise movement at the end. Meant to be quick and fun! Like with my new one theres a secret to be found for three 1UPs and some funny clown horn noises.

I just made a couple of levels that I'm pretty proud of. I would say both of them fall under a "normal" difficulty. A little puzzle-y but nothing too wild.

"Bombshell Citadel" - C12C-0000-00BA-AECB

"Nooks n' Crannies" - 0323-0000-0078-A76D

Secrets to be found in both. :)

Nah not really. People with a skin tone that is not white typically have it worse then videogames.

I didn't realize that was the comparison that we're making here.

Video games are the immigrants of the entertainment industry.

Speaking as someone who has gotten stabbed over a fucking dispute on a bar tab, I can tell you that getting stabbed once is enough to make you tuck tail and get away. When you stab someone, you're showing the intention of taking their life. Ending it. Permanent Vacation, whatever you want to call it.

The kid may have started off in the realm of self-defense, but this is the problem with bullying. Eventually, if the bully is successful, they will succeed in making the victim feel isolated from any course of action, or any way to find help. I do not agree at all with the kid's overreaction. There's a mighty big fucking difference from getting beat on by bullies and having them try to end your life. The kid ended another child's life. It's gone now. Finished. That person has ceased to exist and will not be coming back, ever. You can say he was a shitty person for bullying, but what are you, save for a keyboard warrior who doesn't truly understand the severity of these events? Lives have been ruined over this. Many lives. But of course the keyboard warriors think all is fine and good simply because they got the chance to vicariously cheer for the little guy who got stepped on. It doesn't justify murder, no matter how badly you want to celebrate the demise of a child.

And that's the biggest disappointment about this thread. People are actively celebrating the murder of a kid. A kid who obviously needed help. It's one thing to say "Yeah, the victim had no choice but to defend himself" and another entirely to sit there and gloat over how another person's life has been unduly cut short. It's disgusting to witness, and I am absolutely ashamed of the quality of person that festers on this site.

This.

Who would have guessed that bullying would be a touchy subject on this video game forum.
