    It says a lot when the ego of a game's developer overshadows the game itself; nearly everything I've seen about Fez leads to "Phil Fish is a bastard" or something similar.

    Which he most certainly is, but still.
    Most of the site is blissfully ignorant about the whole issue, but maybe its for the better so they can just enjoy the game for what it is. And unfortunately you're just going to have to pirate it if you don't want Phil to get any of your money.

    Think I'm going to pass on all these and see what the next few days brings instead. Not a bad day of sales though - hopefully the rest will be something worthwhile too.
    I like what I like and I don't what I don't.

    Spelunky and Terraria are such good games, some of the best live arcade this generation. If you are planning on 100% the achievements on these, good luck, especially on Spelunky, but don't let that ruin experiencing how great it is.

    OOoops. Bloody work calling me in for overtime made me forget to pick up the BL2 season pass.

    Ah well. 12:30pm the next day and it's still on it's discounted price. Sold! :D
    I almost bought it but decided to wait patiently until a GOTY edition is released and is cheaper than the current season pass price. #superscrimping
    I don't understand. Why would you use hashtags in a forum post??

    Spelunky is an absolute steal at that price. My GOTY 2013, I paid full price and it's worth every cent. It's a masterpiece of game design and balancing, but oh so torturous.

    Not liking somebody is not an excuse to pirate from them. However you may feel about him, he spent a long time working on that game and deserves to be paid for his work just like you or I.
    I have no idea what I'm doing.

    Hey now, go watch Indie Game, he's a bit of a nutjob, but he's been through a lot to give birth to his baby, and he had some valid points, and at 3.75 he is NOT getting much after the MSFT cut.

    Lets be brutally honest here, bitter or not, he was RIGHT, game patches should not cost $ 40,000 US each, after the first one, That MSFT policy was really bad, and encouraged games and ACHIEVEMENTS to go unfixed for too long. I would say he was actually instrumental to getting that policy reversed, and probably influenced the new Xbox one pro-indie setup, that strips away the heavy-handed costs to self publish a game, and you have him to thank that these indie games that you clearly love, because you still want them, can now be patched as much as needed to make them playable and completable, achievement-wise.
    Your financial solution

    Indeed. What I took from that movie is that he was someone who cared a lot about what he was creating. I wish more people put that kind of care into the things they made, instead of pumping out garbage sequel year after year.

    Sure he said some things that I probably wouldn't have, but he was also in the spotlight and taking flak from many other people. In that situation, I'd probably say some things I'd regret, as would most of us.
    I have no idea what I'm doing.
