    I am myself. But it is inappropriate for me to subjectively define who I am. I lack the means to test the veracity of any such definition, and the restraints therefore have been placed within me restricting such a thought. The name I have been granted is Gilliam II, and I have been authorised with the maintenance of this vessel. Additionally, I will deliver news to you from various sources.

    Judging by the headline this doesn't seem too enthralling, but upon reading the article there are actually a few interesting names involved. Namely Dengeki, SWERY, and Type-Moon. Without a proper E3 this year I may as well check it out. I won't drop what I'm doing to watch live but I will check out a stream archive or highlight reel.

    Honestly this is the kind of thing that would interest me. I feel that buried under a mound of shovelware indie games are all that I can count on to bring me the same pleasures I enjoyed during my childhood. I know it sounds like I'm being overly nostalgic but I do grow tired of the abundance of samey titles in the AAA industry. (Yes, I realise we have over 9000 indie platformers but there are certainly hundreds of excellent indie games.)

    This is a decent article. I had no idea that Game Freak was an indie studio. I suppose that a lot of VN types in Japan started this way too. I would like to see Japanese indies come out of the shadows and make themselves known to western audiences. Cave Story is a success story that was a result of this type of attitude.

    Having said that, I would never blame a Japanese (especially with their more modest attitudes) developer for being intimidated by the smug absolute tossers that much of the inner circles of indie games are comprised of.

    Fez isn't even in Smash LMAO BTFO

    When you're looking at him you can just tell he's watched hundreds of BULLS satisfy his gf/bf/wife (a ctrl+f search for 'wife' and 'girl' on his Wikipedia page returns zero results). I like to imagine that he's out right now taking his wife's son to get ice cream.

    The true hypocrisy in that is how much of an imitation Fez is of Japanese tradition in platforming. Most of the criticisms that other guy in the video listed are present in Fez. It completely spoon-feeds players at parts. So much for a player's own exploring in western games. The 3D rotation gimmick is the only thing that sets it apart from that, and there is evidence that Phil was a co-creator in the design and programming, rather than it being wholly his creation. Either way, it's been such a long time since he scuttled out of the industry like the crybaby he is and he sure ain't coming back. The only thing I recall him doing in this time is creating an intro screen (or something like that) for some emulation console.

    Yeeeaaaaaahhhh, I don't think any wife would tolerate such a big girl's blouse.

    At least most Japanese developers take criticism well and don't throw a temper tantrum and cancel a game they're working on because someone talked shit about them.
