    I don't really see why the guy got so angry in the first place.

    Though it does seem to be "taking my ball and going home" and then some having heard legends of microsoft NDAs and such like I am expecting interesting things on both sides.

    While I'm disappointed that FEZ 2 was cancelled (For now at least, I'm sure he'll get over it), Phil Fish is a fucking whiny bitch. He told the guy to kill himself, and then acts like he's a victim of the harsh gaming community.

    So he cancelled Fez 2 because he got upset over one person? What a whiny bitch.

    From everything I saw in Indie Game: The Movie, Fish is a very self-entitled and emotionally spastic individual. He was up his own ass when Fez was getting lauded back in 2008, and just got more and more defensive and angry the further back the release date was pushed. I don't think he's ever forgiven the community as a whole for not worshipping like they did over five years ago, and his temper tantrum here is not to be trusted. I estimate his back pedaling and pseudo-apology in two months or less.

    Kefiltefish tastes really good when it's marinated in beer; it gets a distinctive flavor. But anyway, I've never heard of this kind of argument; aren't these people supposed to be mature?

    Wow... I was really impressed with Fez and would've really wanted to see a sequel. But if this is the reason it is cancelled... gee... He lost my money.
    Whining like this and "taking his ball and going home" behaviour really sets me off.

    Guess he's to indie to have a PR division lolz (that was a joke)

    I Thought Capcom's cancellation of Megaman titles (Universe, MML3, that FPS) weren't justified enough,
    that one Sega executive burned down in a fit of rage over dev number allocation in his team, the entire source code for Panzer Dragon...
    then...

    This one takes the cake.
    Not that I'm butt-hurt or anything, quite he contrary: this unexpectedly-funny news has made my day.
    One less purchase, Mr. Fish, you dn't deserve my money / respect.

    Slightly off-topic, to end it on a positive note: One thought-to-be cancelled game has been reconfirmed today:
    Yuji Naka's Rodea the Sky Soldier (a.k.a N.I.G.H.T III), for the Wii (maybe Wii U now?) and 3DS.

    A game like FEZ should be one-off anyway. A sequel would ruin the magic, I think.

    I'm going to say that's his pride saying that, and that in actuality this little tussle was the last straw that led to Fez II's cancellation. You don't just quit making a game out of the blue for no reason, this pushed him over the edge.
