This thread's title is dangerously close to "So what are you wearing?" complete with waggling eyebrows.

Well the joke's on you because I'm not wearing anything!  Ha haa...ah.

Ahem.  I've heard a lot of good things about FTL but have yet to give it a try yet for whatever reason.

Actually been busy going through Dark Souls again and inbetween fits of rage-quitting from that game, I catch up in Guild Wars 2.  The new content is pretty hot.

All I know about FTL is that my friends have nearly completed it a few times and it can be quite rage inducing..

.... it sounds so good, but I've yet to actually get around to playing it.

XF is great, gonna have to pick up WA1 on the PSN when I'm done.

Played some Freecol and Dungeon Crawl lately. I'm in the process of modernizing my rig, so I might actually play some relatively new, graphically intensive game one day. (Or not)

FTL is a hell of a game, I played it for a while but I can only get my butt handed to me so many times.

So I'm wearing a crime thriller, an unfinished-feeling multiplayer arena game and a survival simulator?

Pretty sexy ensemble if I do say so myself  8)

(actually yeah Forge is kind of lame to me so far. It looked promising so I'm disappointed it wasn't as much fun as I thought it would be).

Curiously:


For those that have played it, does your perception (if you have one) of FEZ's developer have any impact on your expectations or reception of the game?

Not my expectation or reception of it, just how I feel about actually buying it to support the guy...

I feel weird about it, he worked his ass off for years to make this game, and it's a game that's supposed to appeal to the child inside all of us, that thrill of discovery, and that's one of my absolute favorite things about video games. Despite that, the way the developer has acted towards the general public, displaying both how disrespectful and egotistical he is, really rub me the wrong way.

I want to play his game, yes, because I don't deny he's pretty talented and devoted to spend so long making the game, but if I'm going to spend money to play it, I'd rather it go to something like charity, rather than the man himself. It's sort of a pointless act of spiting the guy, I'm perfectly aware, but based on my own values I think I'd feel better with myself if I donated to charity to play FEZ, rather than support someone who acts like that towards others. Even if he did make the game, it just seems hypocritical to make a game like FEZ, then behave how he does, it's really jarring. Imagine if some of his online posts were in-game dialogue, that'd be terrible right? Kids play and probably love FEZ, and when they read what the guy who made it says online, they'd probably be disheartened.

That's more or less how I feel about it. Relationships with developers can be just as important as the game itself in terms of wanting to support them. In most cases I really appreciate how open, friendly and receptive independent game developers are towards others, but sometimes you get people who given the circumstances just get a really bad rep. I think that Fish' situation was caused by a mix of neglect for the community who was looking forward to his game from the start, the negative feedback that was caused by that neglect, and how he reacted to that negative feedback (i.e. very aggressively)

Ambivalent? I don't know Mr. Fish except for how he's portrayed in the media and how he portrays himself over various social medias which is to say...not kindly. On the other hand, FEZ is an amazing game and I've enjoyed every single second of it thus far and can't wait to do more.

I simply decided when it was brought to my attention that Mr. Fish can be a bit caustic that I was going to enjoy his game in spite of his attitude. The original intent was to make a fun game and he did that. Bugger him if he's decided he doesn't really care anymore.

Not to mention not all the money goes to Mr. Fish and I wouldn't want the other fine people who worked on the game to suffer simply because the director of the game can be a bit of a jerk. They deserve the money for what is swiftly becoming one of my favorite games ever.

My personal rule is "Hate the artist, not his work".
So I can gladlx enjoy FEZ, but I surely as hell won't do so by buying and thereby suppoeting such behaviour.

I think quite a few indies could come crashing down in the future if they go on like they do now.

I think the thing that bothered me most was how that one comment just shows a really poor grasp of the Japanese game industry (the variety is there, you just might have to look harder... just like the western game industry). Nevermind the fact that FEZ concept was actually done by a Japanese indie game dev prior, I'd link the video if I could remember the name. Still going to purchase FEZ regardless, but I'll probably just hold out till a sale.

Hatehatehate defense battles where you can't allow any enemies to cross the line, XF certainly took a step up in difficulity in what is probably the final battle of the chapter (not that I don't welcome challenge, it's just the herfing Geomancers and their giant move range that's getting really bothersome to deal with).
