QEAR

IMMIGRANTS



It was a fine day in Scotland. Eleven degrees below freezing, a forecast of
twenty-three inches of rain with fist-sized hail as far south as Ayrshire,
the Rangers fans were engaging in their annual riot and shiv-related deaths
were at a record high and still counting. Billy Connolly was touring overseas,
Doctor Who was set to return sometime in summer. All roads innavigable,
visibility down to 50 feet, winds of 120kph reported in some areas. Not a
single business closed down due to the weather.

A fine day indeed, for the English were returning home from holiday, all
fucking off back to their beloved rivers of piss and the fifty flavors of
poisonous gruel served before 11am.

Every year, those old-world tyrants would pack a single suitcase with their
sunscreen, a pair of shorts, and a neon pink windbreaker, and march straight
across the border and right up into the hills. Without fail, the emergency
lines would be engaged all hours of the day, a hundred Angols panicking at
the inclement weather, clothes drenched and wanting for shelter forty
kilometers from civilization. Disgusted that Mother Nature predictably ruined
their time off, they would whinge the whole ride back to the hospital, and
head for home the minute they learned they didn't catch hypothermia.

Caledonia, with its two-thousand-year tradition of fine whisky, exquisite
sport, legendary home cooking, the best cattle breeds on earth, music and art
celebrated throughout history, a robust population of goats and enough
award-winning shortbread to choke all of them... and the English come for a
brisk hike through the tundra.

---

As we draw ever nearer to St. Patrick's Day, it's time to turn our thoughts
outward - to the idiot foreigners that keep violating our ancestral land!
Eligible titles either depict a minority population as unfavorable, or do not
provide any example of a minority population whatsoever.


Eligible Titles

  • Pokemon titles - There wasn't a single non-white human in the game
    until Generation V, and even she is a cutthroat gym leader. There are clear
    and prevalent apartheid themes throughout the game aside from that - types,
    type advantages, evolution tiers, the exclusive use of one type classification
    enforced in every single gym? It's criminal that Japan can instill fascism
    in our children.
  • some The Legend of Zelda titles - All Gorons are stupid and brutish,
    all Zora are arrogant and secretive, all Deku are goblinoid vultures. Link is
    free to invade any domestic household and destroy furniture as he pleases.
  • many Sonic the Hedgehog games - Animals are infallible peacelovers,
    in direct opposition to the only human, who is a ruthless dictator. Robotnik's
    contributions to the fields of cybernetic prosthesis and civil engineering
    are ignored.
  • Mario games - Everyone who isn't a plumber is helpless against the
    various minorities in Bowser's service. Toadstools are second-class servile
    citizens.


Ineligible Titles

  • LittleBigPlanet - Anyone can do whatever they want, no matter how
    they look or act.
  • Tetris - There are no people in Tetris, so consequently there is no
    racism despite the game being markedly Russian.


BONUS

  • Bodhran - Acquire this bonus when you use things
    that clearly aren't drums as percussion.
  • Vuvuzela - Do the unspeakable: Include one of
    those satanic noisemakers in your mix.
  • Lutefisk - Involve at least one vomiting noise in your
    submission.
  • Foreignese - You qualify for this bonus if your remix has
    vocals sung in a language other than English.


Arrow Mixing begins when you read this.
Exclamation Mixing ends on March 27th at 11:59 EST (8:59 PM for the PST-ers).
Arrow Voting begins as soon as the songs are uploaded to the site.
Exclamation Voting ends on March 29th at 11:59 EST (8:59 PM for the PST-ers).

GO AFTER THE LUCKY CHARMS!

On the drum bonus, is it just things that weren't meant to be drums, like pots, doors, and cages, or is it something that audibly isn't drums, like car horns and midi animal noises?

I would assume it was meant for the former, although I don't see why it wouldn't count for something that audibly isn't. Just remember to let me know where in the mix that it occurs, since everyone knows I'll probably end up asking anyway.

oh you're just begging me to remix the same game three times now aren't you? Legacy of Kain's only minorities, besides the bloodsucking demon/wolf/bat-faced vampires, are gypsies, who act like what you'd expect - if you only knew of them through hollywood.

i shall try to resist and think of another game i know that fits...

uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuh...

...oh yeah the final fantasys and ...chrono trigger?

So basically games with racism, right?
To expand on xuwawa's Final Fantasy comment:
FFI I would think ineligible, unless we're looking specifically at the lack of blacks, hispanics, and other non-whites. I mean, the Dwarves were a minority, and I thought they were portrayed well. Unlike in say, IX, where they were a caricature of that appearance.
FFII...you tell me, I never got anywhere in II
Same with FFIII
FFIV to me falls under the same category as I, and in fact even more so, because the Dwarves were portrayed particularly well.
FFV, on the otherhand...there was some definite hatred going on. For instance, towards the werewolves.
FFVI we'd have to go back to a question that was raised but not answered in an OLRMageddon: Is General Leo black?
FFVII: Barrett is as racist of a stereotype as you get without looking at anime.
FFVIII: Have to ask for a ruling on this one, not sure about their treatment of the Shumi. Unless Sorceress counts as a race, in which case, totally fair game.
FFIX: the Dwarves became caricatures, and Kuja is so ashamed of his race that he hides the feature that most defines them.
FFX: The Al Behd. Nuff Said.



Side notes: Legend of Dragoon is good, right? I mean, the only minority is "other white humans except these ones have wings", and there is some mad racism going on betwixt them. Also, Disgaea? The only minorities I can think of are the Mexican goblins you fight for the tutorial battles in 3, who end most of their sentences with "esse". Any DBZ game with that black face character should be good (not a DBZ fan really, so I don't know their names)
And I gotta wonder about Street Fighter. I mean, yeah, Asians come off ok, and Ken comes out surprisingly good for being an American, but then I see Rufus (American), and they way they handle Balrog and Dee Jay, the only two Black characters I'm aware of, and the huge stereotype that T. Hawk is...I'm smelling some racism here.

Damn, I have bodrhan AND a Stadium Horn (The name "Vuvuzela" and the portrayed history as the instrument being South African during the 2010 World Cup is a fiction. The Stadium Horn could be heard in World Cups as far back as the 60's) at my parents back in America. Sad

And once again its down to the last day to see if i can record. *sigh* I've got so many ideas, hopefully i can settle on one and get to it...and also have time free to record.

Edit: Nope, not unless I do a late submission again. Damnable busy-ness....
