That being said, my point stands that if someone did legitimately doxx them, they don't deserve it.

I'm not sure if I agree with this. They actively court and act in some capacity as leaders for a culture that uses these tactics and they have never condemned those acts when performed by their culture. I'm not going to feel sorry for them or think it is wrong when their own tacitly-endorsed tactics are used against them.

I don't like the fact that people are stupid and crazy, but you know what they say: "Live by the stupid and crazy, die by the stupid and crazy."


And if they do receive death and/or rape threats, they also do not deserve it.

See above.


I don't have proof they have received them, but of course I don't have access to their accounts.

I don't think anyone doubts the idea that stupid kids said stupid things on the internet.


As a whole though, the gaming community shouldn't be doing or encouraging things such as that to them or anyone.

And I would say that the gaming community is doing no such thing.

No person is responsible for another solely because they share a hobby. The gaming community has no financial or social ties to these people. If one were to solicit donations from such people, regularly converse with them in a friendly manner, and/or act as a leader to a group of such people, that would be a valid association.


. . . all this anger makes gamers as a whole look like a bunch of children, and many of them misogynistic children.

Only to profoundly ignorant people who were probably just going to assume that anyway.

I feel like Fez was a game for people who like to do those cryptopuzzles in the news paper..

Guvf vfa'g ernyyl n chmmyr gubhtu. Vs lbh guvax vg vf, gura guvax ntnva.

Like I heard one of the puzzles is a QR Bar Code. Eh...

I Bought it in the humble bundle (so I could be sure all of the money went to charity instead of one single dime going to Fish) and I played it for 15 minutes or so and haven't gone back to it. It's not my kind of game. Not saying it's bad... just not for me.

I kinda feel like if nobody had given him a good excuse, he would have had to make a Fez 2, he would have screwed it up somehow, and nothing would live up to the hype. So to make it easier on him, he just acted like a jerk till people responded, then "quit".

When people were just starting to forget he existed, he had to go remind them and pretend he was working on a bunch of stuff so he could "quit" that too... when that wasn't enough he haxXored his own website because that worked out so well for Quinn.

If it isn't a puzzle... Then why did you give it a solution? Lol...

Partly because I wanted to see if anyone would go to the trouble of figuring it out. I could have said "you just wasted your time" But really, I haven't played fez enough to know of all the puzzles. I've just heard that lots of it is on the same level as the ROT13 stuff, or morse code, or QR bar codes....

I didn't even solve it, I just ran it through a translator.



Ain't nobody got time for that s***!

Good, he sucks.

I just used a thing called "l33t Key" to make it.

i could have made it hex, binary, or base 64... Hex and Binary people would have translated... base64 would just look like gibberish.
U21hbGwgc2VjdGlvbiBvZiBCYXNlIDY0IFRleHQgdG8gdGVzdA== <=like that.

To me, a puzzle is something more involved than something you can just run through a translator. At least some of the puzzles I think involved fitting pieces of something together.
