    He got into an argument on Twitter and now he's taken his game and gone home.

    What a spanner.

    It's been pretty embarrassing for all involved.

    Just like that.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    His Tweets before locking his account were a disgrace. He acted like a 12 year old calling people names like "Limey". Such a spoilt prat.

    The Fez 2 wiki article states "On July 27, 2013, Fish announced that Fez 2 has been cancelled, following a heated debate on Twitter with Marcus Beer of GameTrailers' Annoyed Gamer segment, after he insulted him on an episode of Invisible Walls."

    I hope he un-cancels it after he's calmed down. That Marcus Beer guy seems like a cunt.

    I thought he made good points.

    End of the day BlowFish spam the crap out of twitter with their opinions but get bitchy when asked for an on the record comment from a site?
    As he said they are going to want those sites to advertise their games for them so yeah it goes both ways.

    If it was a negative MS subject I'm sure they would have jumped on the chance to say something to the sites.

    They don't have a right to bully opinions out of people, which is exactly what he was trying to do.

    Fish is a cunt too, but him being a cunt hasn't stopped anyone making a game I wanna play.

    @King_Edward He wasn't. Gameinformer contacted them to get a view on the MS/Indie announcement [them being indie devs and all] and they got in a sulk.

    Why should they have it their own way all the time?

    Because they're not slaves, and they don't have to bark opinions on command to give some industry suck up a sound bite.

    Vocal online gamers tend to be cunts. He tried to out-cunt them. What did he think was going to happen?

    For shame, Mr. Fish.

    Bit OTT. The odd comment is nothing to get pissy about and they have been talking about MS/Indies a lot over the last couple months and now they get what they have been asking for they don't want to comment?

    And its NOTHING to cancel a video game over. But then Fish showed he is not of the right state of mind in the Indie Movie.

    When you try too hard to be outspoken and edgy you really need a solid product behind you, or you just end up sounding like a bit of a twat.

    Oh well, he's got plenty of time to patch Fez now.

    Silver linings, eh Fish.

    They don't have to give opinion, that's fully within their rights but they really shouldn't be surprised that they are the first port of call when these kind of stories pop up and bitching about it makes them look severely childish.

    They are both, without question, the most outspoken detractors of MS' policies when it comes to indies and indy publishing so when MS announce such huge changes I find it really hard to believe that they are surprised that the media goes to them first.

    They're both also extremely intelligent men (blow in particular; whom I would wager has not had such a ridiculous and idiotic twitter outburst but that's just a guess) so I dare say they know all of this already. It's possible they harbour more than a small bit of ill will toward MS, perhaps justifiably, so are less keen on talking about a positive change to their policies which doesn't allow them to continue to dump them. This being a company which possibly made things a little difficult for them at different points in their lives.

    In other words I really think they need to suck it up a bit.

    @Baihu1983

    To be fair, Annoyed Gamer is just as much a prick as fish and likes to provoke people with very unpleasant insults. They're just as bad as each other.

    Fish's distaste for Microsoft's policies has very little foundation. Whether you agree with their policies or not, he should have known exactly what to expect when he got into that particular bed. If not, then he's still only got himself to blame for not reading the smallprint. If memory serves MS even reduced their cost for him, yet he still refused to do that second patch.

    I might be able to understand if he hadn't made a hell of a lot of cash out of the deal.

    @altitude2k

    He is doing the patch, and he didn't make a hell of a lot of cash out of the deal.

    He said he would fix it now because its free. Pretty sure I read Fez made him around $1M?

    Yeah, now it's free. I meant at the time when it all kicking off they reduced the cost for a second patch.

    @altitude2k He said it only effected a small % of players but that number was something like 10K people who bought the game. Lost a lot of respect for him on the patch deal and yeah MS tried to meet in the middle with him over it.

    After he publicly shamed them, they tried to save face.

    See he loves public comments when he can shame them ;)

    MS pushed Fez a lot more than other games they have published on XBLA.
