Team Meat Vs. PETA: Super Tofu Boy


Recently, PETA blew a cash wad out of its ass to commission a game that (according to a tweet by @SuperMeatBoy) cost more to develop than Super Meat Boy.

Apparently elated at the mainstream (?) exposure, Team Meat fired back yesterday with an update for the Steam version of SMB that added Tofu Boy to SMB as an alternate version of the titular hero, selectable by typing "petaphile" at the character-select screen.

As expected, playing as tofu boy feels malnourished.

I am sorry, but I have to side with what Joe Rogan said about PETA members, "anyone that sides with animals over humans must go"...

I tend to side with animals, but only when they do cool stuff like eat people. What can I say, I'm just not a people person.

I tend to side with animals, because they do what they do without fear or regret. I also tend to side with people persons, because they tend to like me. I will never side with animal persons, because they are furries and furries give animal people a bad rep.

which i can agree with. My point is that, some of those people would choose saving a deer then saving a human. Those people need to go.

I am not a people person either by any means, but i am not going giving up the opportunity to save a person because lets face it, if they are doing something dumb, i want to be the one smacking them on the back of the head.

Huh, I never thought of it as siding with animals over humans. Always seemed more like their point was that animals feel pain like people do and we don't have to kill animals to survive. Granted, Peta maybe takes some things too far and that leaves some people with a bad taste in their mouth...but some of the basic principles there don't seem overly crazy. Oh well.

Anyway, haven't played Super Meat Boy yet but tried Tofu Boy and not liking the controls at all. If Super Meat Boy is anything like that, I think I'll stay away from it. Can anyone comment?

No i get that point, i am not saying all their views are this, but some people believe, animals are more important then humans... kind of disgusting. lol

I entered a contest back in the day on NG where you had to draw McMillen naked and you'd win a thing with all his old games he's made. I did not win. :'(

Though I should have. }:O

You have to jump off the walls.

I played Super Tofu Boy before Meat Boy on Newgrounds. I could stand about 10 second of the former, and played through much of the latter

Humans are animals. FACT. Joe Rogan is a hack (except for the Mencia dis that was actually the right thing to do) also fuck PETA.
