    What's funny is I watched Invisible Walls Saturday morning when Marcus had his rant, I had a good laugh but furthermore thought nothing of it. When I looked again all manner of shit went down and suddenly Fez II is cancelled... Oh internet... :/

    Fish acts like that loud-mouthed scrappy kid in school class that everyone loves to rag because you get such a great reaction out of him, and this is why I believe he has been getting so much bad press.

    It's a weakness, and instead of people simply respecting and leaving him alone to do what he does best, they call him a dick and feed off the hate that comes forth perpetuating a endless circle. So so sad.

    Cancelling Fez 2 was a mistake though. Publicity stunt or not, it's just not the right decision going forward, but hopefully Fish can get some help. He has a problem and it needs sorting out, but at the same time, we all just need to know when to shut up.

    He's hidden his twitter account, and probably for a good reason, it is literally a gold mine of how much of an asshole he is an everyday life. I don't care much for the game, it was a good game and he became successful but throwing this stunt like a little 6 year old because someone actually called him out for being an asshole is worth noting.

    You'd think someone would have a thicker skin in this industry, or any industry for that matter. Criticism happens. Get over it.
