Great game, can't put it down lol. I'm even more interested now that its based in folklore and facts. If you don't have it already only one thing to do: get it!

How is that people don't find this to be "racist" yet Tomb Raider is "sexist"?

This will do while I wait for a sequel to one of my favorite PSN games, Outland.

Regardless of how fun the game is, I think the most fun you can have with this is just saying the name of the game.

I'm curious to see if the politically correct are going to get in an uproar over Mexican stereotypes.  They usually come out of the woodwork for stuff like this.

This game looks really unique in an old school way. I love it!

@modernsocks Because, this game takes ideas and themes from mexican folklore and culture to create what seems like a genuinely imaginative game world filled with interesting, yet light-hearted, characters. I wouldn't call any Tomb Raider game "sexist", but it certainly does seem to cater more to its sexist audience than Guacamelee does to its racist ones.

@WhoeverURIhateU @modernsocks Well, it's "sexist" for its unrealistic portrayal of women. And this game I would imagine people would label "racist" because one assumes that there's more to Mexican "culture" than masked wrestlers.
