Team Meat Supreme Leader Tommy Refenes Discusses Taco Preferences

Pepper your angus for Shacknews' most hard-hitting interview to date.


Everyone here has heard of Super Meat Boy, right? It's the one with the super-challenging platforming and a cast of eccentric indie game characters or whatever? Apparently it has a sequel coming out too. Anyway, Shacknews recently had a chance to speak with developer Team Meat's Supreme Leader Tommy Refenes not about the studio's obscure indie series, but instead about something that speaks to the very core of human nature: taco preferences.

Even though Refenes and the crew at Team Meat might seem like zany, off-the-wall personalities, Refenes himself has fairly ordinary preferences when it comes to tacos. Chicken seems to be his preferred meat, and sometimes he likes to introduce a bit of cilantro into the mix too. He's not very big on salsa, though, indicating a preference instead for guacamole or sour cream.

The interview does briefly get sidetracked with talk about Super Meat Boy around the 1:45 mark — sorry about that — but, realizing the mistake, the conversation was quickly diverted back toward the topic of food, mainly involving a brief discussion of nachos as well as the perplexing availability of five-pound bulk-package buckets of Costco-branded cake icing.

Super Meat Boy Forever will probably release eventually.
