Xbox One and ‘Fez 2’: The best and worst of weeks for the games industry

XMNR: Today is Sunday, July 28 and looking back on the past week seems to perfectly highlight the best and worst of the games industry. The week brought another win for gamers with another reversal of an Xbox One policy and a loss with the cancellation of Fez 2 and the exit of an indie developer from the industry that shows the ugly side of gaming when basic civility is discarded in favor of edginess. (Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, Fez, Fez 2, PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox One)

If Fish wants to be a cry baby, take his 'ball' and go home, then that's fine. I'm not condoning Beer's part in this stupid charade, but nobody likes a weak, whinney-pants attitude either.

Have a backbone Phil. You're really going to pack it up because some d-bag journalist got under your skin? Good luck in the real world buddy.

Edit: found it, it's around the 3 min mark if you guys wanna watch it,

It was like the first topic in the video. But from what I've read it seems to be about more than just the video. Apparently Fish has had ongoing problems with the media. Like he only wants to talk to them when it suits him best.

God wants you to love your neighbors, Phil Fish and Marcus Brew. Hold back your nagativity and embrace the lord, then embrace the controller for thy games art thou entertainment. Amen.

Not sure why Phil Fish quit. If it's because of internet comments, I'm shocked.

I am shocked, this guy is human. He looks to be the type that should be in a room somewhere making games, some people just aren't good at dealing with the media etc.

"The week brought another win for gamers with another reversal of an Xbox One policy". This isn't a comforting thing haven't you ever heard "you may have won the battle but we will win the war". Have the Xbox 180 people ever shown a legal document that guarantees they won't just reverse their reversals a year or two later when it's "too late"?

Better be careful. They're going to deem u a troll for having an opinion.
