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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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.
