phil watched a screw attack video talking about his meltdown from yesterday and now he's having his second one.

i like the one that goes (twitter metldown, twitter meltdown, ) and then copypastas itself throughout the tweet.

it sounds like he's thinking out loud if he should have a meltdown, or a metldown.

i hope he chooses metldown because i'm genuinely interested to find out what that is. never heard of it before.

I have no idea who Phil Fish is, no idea what Fez is, and least of all who zoe is.. I think I'll keep it that way.

You at least want to know what fez is.

Even if it doesn't interest you, you have to admit it is different and unique.

The best part about this is that if anyone takes a look at what is actually happening, it looks more like Phil is trying to impress the bitch than anything else. She is no saint.

Don't hate da playa, hate da game, lol.

Doo jus tryin' ta get sum. Word on da street iz she real friendly.

You know what does suck? People might also buy her game out of curiosity, too.

It's free. Are you sure you haven't mistaken her for someone else?

I didn't know the game was free (I decided not to look it up). However, yeah, I've seen this girl naked and I wish I didn't.

And why does that matter?

If you're a glutton for punishment, she was an "alternative model" (industry speak for a 4-6 covered with shitty hipster ink willing to get naked on camera for the attention) under the handle of 'Locke'. It will give you a sadness panda, though. It matters, because you can't fake the ink. It's definitely the same girl.

Hissy fit aside he (Again) does manage to pick a good subject and have a more or less correct viewpoint on it, then he goes and fucks it up like always.

I do think people should leave people alone, never a need to degenerate into mindless name calling, and outright hate, for the laugh of it (which in itself makes people about as low as they can get). But instead of going on a tantrum hereally should trying to open a discussion rather then start out with hate, since then you will recieve hate.

The only game developer that behaves like most gamers. Brilliant.

Except, he's not on the right side of it. The girl is very seemingly dropping trou to get ahead. He's getting involved in something he doesn't have a clear picture of in the name of white knighting for a doxy.

And why does that matter? Her posing nude has no negative effect on you or her work.

nah m8, you or anyone have any right on critquing others private life, and only critizice a game objectively. Or do you want people to hammer on every bit of bad you ever did?

I have rarely seen anyone deserving of hate, maybe outside of a few ruthless dictors, or do people on the net somehow posess a gene that enables them to be perfect judges who leads by example? my guess is "no" hence, why I doubt anyone have the right to act like a 9 year old with adhd on a sugar high.

We are not talking about a cooled obejctive behavior either, That behavior have NEVER been ok, EVER! and yeah she seemingly have'nt been leading by example either, but then all the more reason to be the better person, and indeed lead by example.

I generally have a disdain for people judging other people they know NeXT to nothing about. Especially when those people are the same kind that howels about privacy online. Ofcourse such privacy only applies to them, and no one else judging from this incident.

Basicly he stated to leave her alone, I agree, then he went on to be just as much of a a-hole leaving his oppinion yet again invalid.

Allright. We need to have social media diet holidays. From hashtagvism to obsessive tweeting this is quantifiably BAD for us as a species. There's little of any sign of negative violent reinforcement in playing violent video games, but we can LITERALLY SEE how unhealthy social media obsession is to us. We even have to admit to ourselves when we're going in too deep.

I wonder how Phil'd be if he overcame his personal burdens without twitter.

That guy can't save himself from himself. Why he thinks he can help anyone else out is mind boggling.

For those interested as to why he is having this meltdown, watch this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5-51PfwI3M&feature=share

It essentially describes the manipulation and fucked up actions of Zoe Quinn as well as those indie devs and journalists, such as Phil Fish, she had affairs with in order to get ahead in the industry and put the spotlight on her game Depression Quest. It's very much worth the watch.

This guy is very relevant and interesting. And with one game in the baggage, a game as super exciting as Fez, you know his opinion matters a lot. Indie developers in general have a lot to say about everything it seems. Like that Blow dude.

#122 Posted by LegatoSkyheart (24881 posts) -

This is apparently linked to this weird conspiracy.

Deals with a lot of stuff about Kotaku Journalists, and The Game Depression Quest and a whole strange stuff.

I still have no idea why this guy gets so much attention. Or credit.

CliffyB made Jazzjack Rabbit back in the day. Also a platformer game. Both CliffyB and Fish are egocentric assholes. Easily comparable.

The only difference between them is that CliffyB has the right to be an egocentric asshole considering what he made during his career.

No he doesn't....

Wow...basically a feminist developer had sex with five guys including journalists to get around in the industry and every website and reddit mod is trying to cover it up.

And these are the people that act like they have the moral high ground, call everyone sexist and hamper gaming development with their non issues.

Who wants to bet he's porking Zoe Quinn?

Who isn't?

Fez was garbage, so no, it doesn't make me wonder.

Is there ANY game you don't think is crap?

*Calls every fanboy a man child, and forgets to look in the mirror*

Yeah.... A man child calls others man children.... What else is new?

Kind of like another Phil.

Following him on twitter has given me loads of entertainment at work. Quite possibly the best decision I made this week.

After watching that, Phil's last name suddenly makes more sense.

If you had a ps4 and playstation plus you would be privileged to know that fez is an indie game.

For a guy who thinks he's all big and mighty, he goes and uses a word like "youse"... and his inner hillbilly is showing all of a sudden.

Also, his biggest problem is that he writes "I just cancelled a project you didn't even know about." but what he means to say is "I just cancelled a project you don't even give a shit about because I suck at life."

#147 Posted by UnbiasedPoster (739 posts) -

We shouldn't be talking about someone's personal lives

Unless they're getting mad publicity for it, in which case, every site should run multiple articles about what appears to be a made up story.

#148 Edited by Dasein808 (323 posts) -

He started attacking Totalbiscuit for this and I suspect that he was flooded with even more hate than he's used to getting because he has now made his tweets private.

Lol. Fuck this ugly kid and his delusions of grandeur.

#149 Posted by jsmoke03 (12748 posts) -

lol ive been reading all his tweets....on one hand, i can understand where he is coming from....on the other hand, i just wish this guy should see the errors in how he presents it. im also misunderstood and often angry, but being combative isnt going to make life better. he is fighting the wrong fight despite the fact that its true that a lot of gamers are douches
