This gave a good laugh, well.played Rabbids. I'm loving this game and how much fun they are having with it.
I'm with you, man. I mean I get that they're not everyone's cup of tea, but it seems like everyone freaking out over this looks like:
Man why are y'all such haters. I have loved Rabbids ever since Raving Rabbids, they are purposely dumb little caricatures. What's the problem exactly? (Also have no problem with Minions either)
They fucked up.
So, unlike days of old, on NEW social networks (Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, etc.), you can change your username.
If you go to the VERY first photo on @RabbidPeach's account, you can find it here:
You'll see it says to "Follow us @Rabbidsofficial"
Well, when you change usernames (IE: Rabbidsofficial to RabbidPeach) it leaves the other account open.
So now someone jumped on it yesterday in the vacancy that was left behind.
It's not a new account. They renamed @rabbidsofficial to @rabbidpeach, so they could keep all the followers. But now someone else jumped on the old name for the hell of it.
Are we sure Rabbids are for kids?
Mario + Rabbids has suddenly taken on an entirely different meaning
I love how a lot of people don't realise that the Rabbids are 4 years older than the Minions
are rabbids going to become gaming's minions
Ah yes all these terrible non-Nintendo developed titles that use their big IPs... Mario Party, Minish Cap, Oracle of Ages, Mario Baseball/Basketball... Horrible titles indeed
I have no idea what they were thinking when they let anyone of then Nintendo handle their valuable IP.
This is some Wand of Gamelot shit.
Game looks fun.
There's a fairly popular kids television show. Not so much keeping the brand alive, just doing regular marketing.
I'm more impressed that this account has been active and posting at least each month since 2014. Obviously it used to be a general rabbids account which they now renamed to suit the peach rabbid character. That's some dedication in keeping the rabbids brand alive.
I'm not sure how I feel about the wording here. Like it's odd, that's for sure, but "grotesque" and "nightmarish"? Bit much to be fair.
Yeah, Destructoid at it's worst. The UK wing was ok (dead now), but the main site has really gone in the trash. Really vulgar posts, clickbaity "opinions" and overall just a mess of a site... I actually regret being a part of the community there :(
Clickbait for an easy circlejerk.
This. Those "holier than thou" types are the worst. This is diversity, I thought GAF is all about celebrating diversity?
I love the salty posters over a marketing tactic to increase awareness of a fun looking game. Rabbids aren't the abomination that a lot of people want to think. People need to relax a bit this isn't the destruction of gaming as we know it.
