I can see why everyone is so distasteful toward the Fez guy.. he seems very intelligent but doesn't seem to play well with other people.

Did you notice the commentary in the options? The guys made Super Meat Boy did a voiceover of the whole movie. I thought it was a bit strange to include something so biased. They basically bashed the Fez guy, said everyone else was awesome, and then gave more information on the parts of the video about Super Meat Boy. The extra info about SMB (just realized same acronym as Super Mario Bros. haha) was quite interesting though.

Good!!, have u played that game. probably the best game i have ever played. I have played it non stop for 3 or 4 days then take a break because im about to throw my xbox out the window. then come back 4 months later and play another 10-15 levels, rinse and repeat. it was so sick. mario is a good comparison, because i felt the same the first time playing through that but that took like 20-30 minutes to beat, im going on a year with meatboy. so awesome of a game.

yea the fez guy is over dramatic like a 14 year old girl. Did you see the comparison on graphics? between like a year of rebuilding, its like the same, a tiny bit more polished. guy is a freak. i played fez and its not my thing, more of a twitch gamer but yea, too slow paced

I loved IG:TM. I always love a good underdog story of developers on their last leg only to have their game explode online and make them fairly rich. Granted, it is somewhat inaccurate. Not all indie developers go all in and put their lives at such risk. Heck, I hope to break that perception with my indie game someday. Sure, I'm slower to ship due to having a full time job, but I love the safety. My life is fine. :]

Super Meat Boy is fantastic.

Fez looks good, but Phil Fish needs to open his mind and allow it to be ported to other platforms. I'm not buying an XBOX. If the controller is so critical, maybe an OUYA port would be feasible. :]
