Pie? Forget about the pie. The pie is nothing. Now there is cake. *shudder*

This is the best birthday present I could have hoped for.

Edit: aahhh, social justice bullshit.This is worst birthday present.

I was hoping this would go up so I could watch it in bed.

My favorite Still frame for video. Ryan and Afro Phil spooning away.

Also, Pie.

Everyone on this is awesome. Everything about this was awesome. I love that I'm alive for this and capable of bearing witness to dumb, stupid fucking shit like this.

Also, there's a whole lot of design talk that I just ate right up.

Social justice discussion is wonderful and crucial. Good job, duders and guests!

Cake story chilled me to the bone. Also, Phil Fish seems like a great dude.

@fram: It was Jeff's face during the whole thing that "I love you man, but why the fuck are you telling people this"

Only on giantbomb can you go from serious discussion on game design and women in the industry to a story about how Ryan sat on a cake in the nude.

This was totally great. I want to try the cake thing now. Also Phil Fish is fantastic. Fuck the asshole commenters.

Yeah I really don't understand the Phil Fish hate- it was awesome hearing him talk about design stuff as well as him being generally hilarious as the night went on. Giantbomb team and guests were all spot on in this- great vid!

Giant Bomb Store now selling exclusive Phil Fish Teddy Bears™!

Collect em all! Or don't, whatever. The Phil Fish Teddy Bears™ don't care. So, f*** you and your imbecilic opinions if you don't want one. Phil Fish Teddy Bears™ don't need to put up with any of your crap. They're doing just fine without you or anyone else. Thanks.*

If you wouldn't judge him from one sentence, like a human being, you might realize he's not actually completely evil simply for thinking japanese games are bad. Just you know, maybe thoughts on how to treat people with respect and understand that some people say stuff without really thinking about how it will sound.

What was up with Paul Barnett? He seemed kinda sad the whole time.

*Should have mentioned that I meant during the first segment he seemed down and quite. He livened up a lot more during the second segment.

Between the breast milk, the pie flushing and this recent cake sitting development, it's been an interesting week for Ryan Davis.

....so how do you think the clean up went? Primarily of Ryan? Like...a hose? Shower and toilet-paper for his ass? Cause I imagine him diving in and, you know, that cake had to have gotten everywhere. And by everywhere I mean all the crevices. You know? Think about.

After all the shit talking the internet did about Phill Fish, I watch this, and he comes across as a really nice guy with some pretty interesting things to say.

Edited by Luck702

I'm glad Phil was on this. I've always thought the interwebz hate for him was completely unwarranted. Hes just a normal dude like the rest of us, not a mustache twirling villain.

Posted by marbleCmoney

I'll never look at cake the same way again.

Posted by Nadril

So why don't people like Phil Fish? I must have missed some sort of internet outrage or something, because he seemed like a pretty cool and interesting dude.

Because he said Japanese game design/business is stagnating (which it is) and people the internet heard racism.

Wait... That's it? Really?

And didn't the Giantbomb crew literally just say that during the first part GDC after party? I mean, it's true, Japanese game design has been stagnated for a while now.

I don't agree with some of the more outrageous things Fish has said (Japanese games suck, the choke on my dick comment he made, etc.) but he seems like an incredibly cool guy.

When he was talking about creating an atmospheric virtual world with Oculus Rift support I really enjoyed just hearing him talk about how he would imagine it and how it would be. It would be really awesome to explore a finely crafted immersive virtual world with the Rift, where the only objective was to explore, and that was really it.

I also am so glad to finally hear people who agree with me that games shouldn't be realistic, because I get enough of that shit in real life every day. I don't want to go home and play more of that crap, I want to do crazy shit that isn't possible in reality in a world that could never exist.

As for the new word they were looking for to describe video games that aren't quite games, I would say "virtual experience" would be a decent term to use. That way it doesn't have to adhere to the strict rules that some people force on games, and it can just be an experience in a virtual world. I guess it sounds kind of silly though, almost like a marketing term.

Edited by SleepyDoughnut

I loved Carrie's comments about the whole women in video games thing, which was essentially fucking chill out about it. So refreshing to hear. It's so tiring to hear white guys talking about whether something is potentially racist or sexist.

Its not just that. Phil Fish has a history of talking mad yang about stuff for unwarranted reasons. Look at Fez coming to PC after he marched up and down the street about how it was "A console game" that would "never come out for pc"

...until he needed the money. Not to shit on him for wanting his game to do well, but own up and say you were wrong. Hell, he said "PCS ARE FOR SPREADSHEETS" now suddenly they are fit to run his game? But, I dont want to get on another Phil Fish rant, so im just going to leave it there.

I don't know, this "Dumptruck" joke feels really forced to me. Nothing against the name or feature; I just don't find it that funny. Developer reaction was silly and fun but not enough to warrant their extended discussion about it the other day. Just my opinion, of course.
