    Is not FEZ 2, actually, it has nothing to do with FEZ.

    And the game's primarily made by two other guys other than Phil Fish.

    See reason for edit. I saw my error a few second after posting and reported so a mod could amend the title.

    You should watch this:


    It might not change your opinion, but it is still a decent point.

    Personally i don't care if Phil came back or not, i still think he is kind of an asshole, especially with what happened this morning, but polytron working more as an indie partner is something i welcome.

    I wish Phil the best of luck. Hopefully his future ventures will bring him more peace. It's supposed to be for the love of it after all...

    So either Phil Fish paid money to have this made, or someone spent time on this entirely of their own volition.

    Either way, that's pretty sad.

    The only reason why people still remember him is because his name's got "Fish" in it and it's just sorta catchy. Otherwise, he's an ass.

    Well it has been awhile since I've logged in but hey, let's make a post!

    So... how about a mention for the ACTUAL DEVELOPERS working on this game in this article. This isn't even a new game announcement. It has been at various events. For years.

    The game's developers, Fernando Ramallo and David Kanaga, have partnered with Finji and Polytron for publisher-like assistance in various areas.

    I'm not sure if I agree with the premise of this video - essentially the idea that's being conveyed is that we should close an eye on Phil Fish being a hot-head and at times an asshole because a) he's always been hot-headed and an asshole and b) because people are mad at the concept of a circle-jerking "indie" developer, or rather, a pretentious "auteur", not at Phil Fish the individual. Well, I've got news for everybody - neither of those factors makes Phil Fish any less of a circle-jerking "indie" hot-headed asshole person.

    As a developer who puts out a product on the market, you become married to it and have to get used to the fact that your "audience" comprises of both people who admire you as an individual and those who hate your guts. Conversations between a developer and his/her audience are not at all like conversations between two boys on a school yard, Phil Fish the developer and Phil Fish the person are two different personas, if he's unable to be professional via official channels, perhaps he should not participate in them.

    If I tweeted at any randomly picked famous person, say, Johnny Depp and told him that "The Lone Ranger and Transcendence are sh*t movies and he sucks donkey balls as an actor because he's a one-trick pony and is permanently married to the Jack Sparrow role", chances are that I would be ignored or the reply would either be neutral or an attempt at making the conversation a big joke because replying aggressively would simply give bad rep to Johnny Depp the actor - Johnny Depp the individual's feelings are a completely different matter. Unless Johnny Depp would specifically want to cause some buzz around himself, I would not hear anything along the lines of "No, you suck" as a reply because that's unprofessional.

    To reiterate, if Fish can't handle the heat, he shouldn't expose himself to it. Defending rude responses with the "well, they were rude first!" is silly in a professional setting - in his position, he has to be better than his peers and that's that. I won't dwelve into his other flaws, but I will say that he has to learn when's the time to bite himself in the tongue and just let it go or at least steer the conversation to a different subject before he makes another blunder. Blunders are not charming, they're annoying. They're giving him press, but it's bad press.

    So this happened: http://www.gamespot.com/articles/fe...me-devs-huge-portion-of-revenue/1100-6420573/

    Here's some snippets:
    Upon imparting his wisdom upon us, mere mortals, Phil has promptly deleted his Twitter account, likely in a fit of his usual rage.

    Here's an appropriate gif featuring salty tears:

    [​IMG]

    "You filthy YouTube pirates, how dare you capture footage of yourself having fun! I demand that you hand over all your YouTube millions to me, the poor developer! Thieves, the lot of you! You and your free advertisement be damned, it's not like thousands of people buy games because they liked the gameplay footage they saw online! That's it, I'm leaving (again)! MOOOOM! WHERE ARE MY CHEESY-PUFFS AND MOUNTAIN DEW?!?"

    :)

    I support him.

    How can a guy like PewdiePie earn 4 million dollars a year?

    We're crazy.

    It's called transformative work and it's Fair Use, people don't watch PewDiePie's videos for the games, they watch them for PewDiePie, his reactions and his commentaries (getting that through to someone's head might be difficult, I know). The games merely receive free advertisement in the process and unless we're talking about 100% linear story-based single player games shared in their entirety, broadcasting captured footage does not take away anything from the actual product - you can't "play" a YouTube video like you'd play a video game. Essentially this is the argument along the lines of "I should pay $2 for every photo of bread I see online because that's totally like eating the whole loaf" - it's not, it's just a photo of the actual product, a fraction of the whole. There's a good reason why a lot of video game companies work directly with YouTubers - it's just a cheap and extremely effective way to market their products.
