Day one patches for consoles are a thing now. Let's all un-celebrate!

Oh god, that was sublime. I especially like the bit when Vinny's eyes rotate.

Anyone mentioned the guy who angered Phil Fish after the AnnoyedGamer exchange? Something about him mentioning "Redheads don't lie" and then accusing Fish of abusing his ex-girlfriend. Said guy deleted his account soon after (GamerHiveMind), but I still managed to catch his last few tweets on his timeline stating how proud he was that he pissed off many people for Fez II's cancellation. Obviously he wasn't solely responsible, but I'm sure that those well-timed tweets didn't help matters.

This whole thing is pretty horrible. I re-watched Indie Game the Movie and you can tell that Phil Fish is a very emotional kind of guy in both extremes - good and bad. You could see the passion and dedication and I guess it's just sad that it's come to this. I feel for people put off developing indie games from the hate and negative comment it attracts.

I wish him well in his future adventures.

Thank you, sir. Take as long as you need. These old GB videos are bringing nothing but good memories.

I'd buy one.

This photo was tweeted by Alexis and totally floored me. I've linked it rather than embed the photo because it'll probably make you cry too.

Still can't believe this. 34 is way too soon. My heartfelt condolences go out to everyone at the Giant Bomb and his wife. Ryan gave me so much enjoyment and entertainment for the past 5 years since I knew of the Bombcast and all the Quick Looks. I didn't know him personally, but it feels like I've lost a very good friend.

RIP. Thanks for everything.

I'm actually liking the sound of this. The Nintendo Direct videos are basically miniature E3 presentations, and as bizarre as it might sound to have no E3 conference, it's only weird because everyone's gotten so used to the spectacle and one-upsmanship that generally happens there. Remember Cirque Du Soleil?

I'm looking forward to the possibility of a world where E3 is less about bullshit and more about games.

This. I look forward to each Nintendo Direct video because it is - well - direct. No fancy bullshit marketing. I remember they did something smart last year with their online presence by updating their E3 page with new videos and the like. I'm looking forward to seeing what new Nintendo Direct joy will birth from E3 2013.
