@Oscarsome I really wish I didn't have to be an outlier here, but thanks. I really like this site and its content most days, but this particular article is just pure bad journalism, and the comments just show how rotten the core of the community here can be. I really hope there isn't a repeat of this in the future, because I know I won't be the only one turned away from the site if there is.

Also, pointing out that these articles are "click-bait" in the comments here is a bit ridiculous, considering this NintendoLife article is probably the worst offender for click-bait I've seen in a long while.

Nothing gets overzealous fans more riled up than people who dare criticise the methods of a company they love without question, after all.

The final point of this article seems like a really stupid addition, especially after the Tomodachi Life articles already brought out the bigoted members of the community in this site.

At not one point in the Paste Magazine review do they say the game is racist. It's simply the reviewer stating that they would like to see personal representation in the game. They aren't asking for Mario to be turned black, they just want a single humanoid character who isn't white. Not exactly asking for the world, there.

Granted, I wouldn't say it makes sense in the MK8 review itself, and should have been a separate opinion piece, but the way this article is written, mocking someone for having a legitimate concern with Nintendo's lack of diversity, is just mean and unprofessional. I kinda hoped better from you guys.
