Phil Fish Is An Arsehole & Bioshock Infinite DLC Announced!

Fez II has been cancelled. Yep. Go home everyone. Nothing to see here. It's dead. Dead as a motherfucking dodo.


Alright, alright! Calm it! Don't look at me! Look at Phil Fish. Yeah, that guy whose last name is that of a water based animal. 

Luckily, though, you don't need to ask massive arsehole Phil Fish why one of the most anticipated arcade slash indie game sequels isn't being developed anymore as he's already made his reasons perfectly clear.

Apparently Mr. Fish is sick of the abuse he gets and wants to get 'out of games'.
The exact tweets regarding the cancellation of the game went like this:

Fish: "im done. FEZ II is cancelled. goodbye."

Then Polytron, the development company behind FEZ and fronted by Fish,  came out with this:
"It's with a heavy heart that we announce that FEZ II has been cancelled and is no longer in development. We apologize for the disappointment"

Then Fish later tweeted:
"To be clear, im not cancelling FEZ II because some boorish f**k said something stupid, im doing it to get out of games."

He then continued:
"and im getting out of games because i choose not to put up with this abuse anymore."

So first of all I'd like to say: grow some balls man, for God's sake. Not doing something because of abuse and because some people are hating on you is the weakest excuse for not doing anything ever. I've had haters myself. On twitter and on here. On IGN and on Gamesbeat. Wherever I've been someone or some people have hated on me. But do I care? No. I don't give a flying fuck. No one does. We're past the stage where haters surprise or shock us. Haters nowadays are normal and we get on with our lives while ignoring them.

The second thing I want to say is that Fish is an arsehole. He complains about the abuse he gets but he told someone to kill themselves before on twitter and constantly gets in arguments on there so, really, why the fuck is he complaining? He seems like a stubborn, obnoxious, 'don't take my toys but I'll take yours' kinda guy if you ask me. He needs to grow up. Seriously.

Anyway, enough of that crap. Let's talk about a rather awesome thing called BIOSHOCK INFINITE DLC BABY!!!!

Yep, Infinite's DLC has been revealed! In fact, the first chunk of DLC is already available, called 'Clash In The Clouds'. However this DLC isn't story based and is a simple 'arena' challenge mode. No biggie there.

However the other two upcoming pieces of downloadable content are called 'Burial At Sea' and are set in Rapture. Yes, we're returning to Rapture.

In the first Burial At Sea 'episode', as it were, you play as Booker who, it appears from the trailer, wants to get out of Rapture and is using Elizabeth to help him with this. Both characters are different from how they were in Infinite so don't expect them to act the same or anything.

The second 'episode' allows you to play as Elizabeth, however details of how this will work and play out are minimal. All Irrational said regarding her episode is it will play out 'almost like a survival horror'. Interesting.

Ken Levine did an interview with IGN where he revealed more details about the game, so check that out for more info on the DLC.

Anyway, I'm totally psyched for the Burial At Sea content and can't wait to see how the story of that links up with the story in Infinite itself. What do you think of the DLC? Are you going to buy it? And what do you think about FEZ II being cancelled? Leave yo comments below! PEACE!
