I'm still at less than 100 wins and would love to matchmake with some Giant Bomb noobies!

Using glitches to your advantage against AI I'm cool with, but a glitch to skip to the end doesn't really interest me.

Kinda agree with this sentiment. Still, hopefully Patrick finds some fun in this

It's just an "any%" run. There are also 100% categories that they will do from time to time which is still undeniably fast. "Any% glitched" is just one category in a whole slough of categories for any particular game and the times stay unique to those categories. SMB3 has Any% Warp, Any% Warpless, 100%, etc.

Keep in mind that all of the glitches he does in this video take extreme skill and practice. Getting them all done successfully in one run is very hard and as a result ends up being a world record.

But yes, there are All-Dungeon and 100% categories for people who are more into the planning/routing aspects of it.

Is it just me or is the audio situation consistently terrible with these streams? Either everybody's too quiet or one specific person (the reader, usually)/the game audio is very loud in comparison to everyone else

It reduces your max health by ~10% (I think) as if you had died. You probably didn't notice because you may have died at the same time, which would reduce it slightly further.

It can't be reduced past 50%.

Very, very well done. Amazing.

good lord i just remembered why i don't read comments on giant bomb

Remeber its Patrick who brings it up, not the community... if he stopped posting Anitas silly videos the discussion wouldn't turn this way

It's just blatant click/comment bait at this point, particularly since, even if you agree with Anita, she's not saying anything new or thought-provoking at this point.

How dare Patrick post something that people are interested in having a conversation about! What an ass!

Yeah you guys are reaaaally just proving the original quoted comment with these responses. It's not the discussion itself that is the problem, it's the amount of blatant misogyny and "FEMINAZI" idealism on this site and in its comment sections. It's apparent everywhere, and Patrick just takes the flak for it.

This is intended as a angry yelly Internet comment.

That said, the problem I have with Patrick is that I came here for a article about Fez 2, but this is just an article about Patrick.

I typically avoid Patricks articles but the few I have read all seem to devolve at some point to shameless self-promotion of his sterling moral character.

I suppose I need to send Patrick a email or Tumblr to ask why he thinks it necessary to include a gallery of fan images of himself in a completely unrelataed story about indie developers.

Did you READ the article? He was promoting the Giant Bomb community's character, not himself. He was relating his own experiences with trolls on the internet to Phil Fish's. Don't let me stop you from reaching though, man.

Fez was a shitty game and Phil has been nothing but an asshole. Suck my dick, choke on it.

Could you give me 10 examples of Phil Fish being an asshole? Since he was "nothing but" this should be really easy for you.

Could ANYBODY do this? Because goddamn, I think there's only evidence that the guy just has no filter and doesn't know how to mince words. Hey, maybe he can't help it, or maybe it's a legitimate problem for him. And he handles these situations poorly but it doesn't make him the Satan of video games or some shit and CERTAINLY doesn't make any of the dogpiling on him valid.

You come off sounding like more of an asshole than he does.
