Video Games Made Me Do It: "Indie gaming developer Phil Fish this morning tweeted out the news many fans of his Escher-esque platformer Fez have been hoping to hear: Fez II, his much-hyped but abruptly canceled sequel, is back in development."
I really like that there's more satire these days. This industry has always needed to take itself less seriously and maybe it's starting to. Not to take credit or anything, but... http://n4g.com/news/1315164... :)
Provided said satire is actually funny I totally agree lol.
I agree that video games need to be taken less seriously, but unfortunately no site has been able to do what the Onion does. A lot of these satire sites just come off as tryhards
Except the one I backed on N4G back in the day. They knew what they did... Reference in the link above. Besides, half the time The Onion comes off as try-hards. Written comedy is hard.
@360ICE, I actually don't like the onion either. I don't understand the fuss around them
Then again the fanboy wars started, really became the hate fest they are today, because of parody. The Xbox camp reacting to the price announcement for the PS3 with viral videos. That's around the time a real "Them vs Us" crept into things.
I knew it was a satire because gamers are evil and don't deserve Fez 2, the sequel of the best game ever created, Fish is a genius, he changed entertainment forever.
Did you know that Phil Fish single handedly saved all the women in the world from the claws of the evil white men? Did you know that Phil Fish can do 100000 pushups in 20 seconds? /s But seriously, f**k that guy. What an embarrasment to both gaming community itself and indie developers overall. He's never going to release FEZ 2 because he knows he got lucky with the first one and will never be able to replicate the same success.
The problem with this piece is that it's entirely plausible :/
Wait so what's happening? This guy seems to cause more drama than joy at this point. It's like he is bipolar. Is it coming or not, seriously if any other company did this they would have gone under by now. It's coming but only on these following conditions completely not related to money. Jesus, why are always the creative ones crazy?
I'm pretty sure he is Bipolar
Regardless of this satire article, All his recent talk of Fez 2 after supposedly leaving the industry just shows that he realizes he needs the $$$ to continue the lifestyle he probably started living after the bags of money that dropped on his lap for Fez.
Phil Fish is an insufferable asshat that needs to retire and go bag groceries at his local convenience store where nobody will ever hear from him again.
This guy seems very Bipolar. One second he is saying that he will never make Fez 2 because people bully him and the next he is calmly tweeting that Fez 2 is coming.
