PanicMan: You know, the dude gets constant shiat from complete strangers 24 hours a day. I'd be a dick too. Fez was fun, he just needs to figure out the business side of gaming and he'll be fine.


The reason he gets constant shiat from strangers is because he was a dick to begin with. Other non-dick developers don't get constant shiat, because they're not dicks. This guy doesn't understand that you get back what you put out there.

Mad_Radhu: He may be an asswipe, but he's not wrong. Even on the PS3, you don't see games like Uncharted, The Last of Us, or Heavy Rain coming out of Japan. In the PS1 era almost all the great games were coming out of Japan, but I can't remember the last time I even played a game from a Japanese studio, and my primary console is a PS3.


Dark Souls? Metal Gear Solid franchise? just about every fighting game except for MK?

  Part of is that American and Japanese players are looking for different kinds of games.  There is some overlap, but stuff like Modern Warfare just isn't huge over there, and there are now enough American made RPGs coming out that the entire library isn't all JRPGs anymore

The gaming scene will be better off without him. He made one fairly good indie game and then went all Kanye West on everyone. He alienated most of the people who helped him achieve his vision and, despite the fact that video games are supposed to be fun for the PLAYER, he's always made it clear that he's in game development for himself.

Well, I've never heard of him or the game he wrote, that's a couple of data points right there.

I have never played Fez and I don't care how many people say that it's good; this guy is an arrogant dick and I will boycott him for life. He sounds like one of those guys who talks just so much because he's never been made to swallow his teeth.

frostus: I really like Tic Tac Toe. When are they ever going to release a follow-up to that?

Can't root for either Beer or Fish in this slapfight. Neither one seems to come out good in this instance, but since when is it good for even a podcaster to make something personal by namecalling?

The best ragequits in a game is when someone can dominate a top player so badly that he just leaves. I can't understand it, I see a great player for a short time getting owned by another, and they can't take it.

Never heard of him.  Too busy playing games bought off Steamsale.

What the fark is Fez?  Because it's not Rez, and Rez is the only 3 letter game ending in 'ez' that matters.

Yeah, like I'm going to believe him anything about going away and cancelling the game as opposed as it being a transparent scheme to bring attention to his game. Clearly.

The guy has FREAKING ANDY KAUFFMAN as his profile pic, are journalists/public really this stupid?

Wow.  It's too bad I'll be missing this indie game with the spiffy wireframe graphics.  Colored wireframes!

At GDC, when asked earnestly by a Japanese gamer what the panel thought about modern Japanese games, Phil Fish stated, looking into the man's eyes, "They suck. You guys need to get with the times."

The rest of the answer is actually bearable, but Phil Fish is an arrogant asshole.

Saw him in the film "Indie". Seemed normal until about half way through and then he just started coming off the rails as a one of those people who create their own problems with their mouth, then whine they have problems and how unfair it is the world is out to get them and doesn't understand their genius.
If he kept his mouth shut in public and walked away when he wanted to rage rather than make a public display of things, he would have been ok.
Now? Just a no body who made a game once.

This absolutely has everything to do with a Twitter fight, and nothing to do with the fact that the dev probably had been staring blankly at a Visual Studio.NET New Project screen for the past 6 months.

Dude openly mocks families of people that have committed suicide. The world would be better off without him.
