The biggest news this week has quite obviously been Phil Fish taking his ball home with him. The man has had to put up with a crapton of hate from the gaming industry over the last couple of years, and combined with the fact that he can’t handle negativity, the inevitable meltdown was only one jerkass away. But has he really vanished?
Over on 4Chan, which is the one place no game developer, no matter how thick-skinned they are should ever go to, popped up a Fez 2 thread. Embiggen the image below and read through it quick.
Sounds like your usual 4Chan, right? Except look at the tweet again. It was quite clearly screen-captured from the Polytron account, as it had the admin options active below it. Now whether or not this is Fish giving 4Chan some grief, or a Polytron staffer with access to the account, I don’t know.
But seeing as how Fish has posted on 4Chan before, I’d bet good money on it, despite the thread being deleted. Or so one would think. Because whoever posted this isn’t going to look good at the end of the day with comments like that.
The Internet ladies and gentlemen. It never forgets. Thanks to @HadleeSimons for the link.
Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
