I got Fez essentially for free and I still can't be assed to play it. Phil Fish can suck a dick and choke on it.

 

Spoiler:
As it turns out, reading that picture I linked after seeing all of this scandal play out, it all makes sense why he actually won the grand prize at IGF. Go figure.

 

Anyway, here's something started by Boogie, though I'm not sure exactly how helpful it'd be

Exactly. He's a hack and has always been a hack.

We need a thread for calmly discussing bashing Phil Fish.


There once was a kitty named Tomo
As famous on the Internet as Domo
But his face got all shitty
Because he's a bad kitty
And now he's washed up like Rivers Cuomo

I don't think a thread can be that long

#notyourshield is starting to pick up steam, and Cinemablend decided to cover it

Edit: Slate also had a good article on the "gamers are dead" flood that happened a few days back

 

http://www.slate.com...r_but_they.html

 

Edit again: Supposedly the Xbox team is unofficially backing Gamergate (Obviously anonymous)

Entire thing was manufactured by a group of blackhat 4chan hackers. Honestly it comes as no surprise, but it's sad that people are going through this much trouble just to harass somebody.

Stop decrying this as some SJW crusade, someone is being legitimately harassed. Trying to sweep it under the rug as "muh feminism, muh equality" is just turning a blind eye to a huge problem with gamer culture in general.

This whole discussion is disappointing.

Thanks Scyrius, I was just about to post this.

 

If you support gamergate and honestly believe in stopping hate and corruption in gaming culture, then congrats, you're being manipulated and used as PR cover by people intending to do actual harm.

I fell for it, plain and simple. I'll take whatever flak that deserves.

 

Got caught up in the excitement of "ending industry corruption" that I lost my sense of cynicism. Guess I'll chalk it up as a life lesson.

 

Edit: Not going to be deleting anything in here for the sake of posterity/owning up.

It happens to the best of us m8. You're being the better man for owning up.

Nothing personal I just urge people not to take everything as one sided and objective.

After reading so much over the past week, I'm just going to say that both sides are at fault here.

I've seen so much harassment from both groups that I have decide to just not even beleive a single thing anymore.

People have been doxxed from both sides (over video games), and that is not fucking okay.

 

 

I still stand by the fact Phil Fish is a hack though.

Either way the fact still stands that people are being targeted and harassed through the internet. You could say it's cherrypicking or you could say that it's selecting the best proof.

In any case I'm gonna stand with Quaint here, both sides are just being totally awful.
