Phil Fish hacks himself, blames 4chan, is probably going to jail

Post by DP on Fri Aug 22, 2014 7:42 pm

Phil Fish's Polytron website was hacked, after he spent the whole day with Zoey Quinn on /v/ yelling at everyone about how they're awful people. Details below. 



If all that info is real he's probably getting arrested.

it's about time that the Zoe Quinn debacle got mentioned here. Just goes on to show the corruption and pettiness of video game journalism (look up what Zoe has supposedly been up to) along with the lengths to cover up what they've done and put up the most some of the most pretentious facades of playing the victim I've ever seen. Still, I'm just ignoring the whole situation because this'll all probably blow over in a couple of weeks at most, like a lot of idiotic mainstream situations like this in the internet's news cycle. So meh.

Also, for anyone wanting to learn more about the situation, watch this:

I pretty much tried to avoid the whole Quinn debacle here because until like yesterday we didn't have full knowledge that she did anything objectively wrong. Now that we know she lied about being hacked, having Twitter PTSD, being depressed, AND took advantage of Internet censors leading to a mass Reddit banning and YouTube videos (she also took down any Youtube vids that mentioned her by saying they used screenshots of her game), there's reason enough to discuss it. Legally she could be in trouble too because of that. (Plus she released her game the same Day Robin Williams died to capitalize on his passing so that people could possibly "feel better" after playing Depression Quest). Fish however, is totally fucked if he did in fact try to frame 4chan and released other peoples' personal info.

Makes sense. Didn't know about the Robin Williams part, not even sure how to feel about that.

Also, I just want to go out on a limb here and say a game based on having depression sounds pretty damn morbid, but I think that if the game is articulate and abstract enough, it could actually work and be interesting. Now, I have no idea what Depression Quest looks like or how it plays, just felt like putting that bland statement out there lol.

now i knew they were always douchebags but damn this is a new low even for them.
besides why would hackers even bother hacking them they simply aren't worth it just let them fall into obscurity.
