With the recent news of Phil Fish closing down development of Fez 2 and quitting gaming we focus our Roundtable on "The Internet Hate Factory." Is it ok for people to actively act against others online or should cooler heads prevail? Do people need to develop a thicker skin or should be all be more nice?

We discuss that and the games we are playing as well as a few fun bits, like Travis building an Internet Hate Site focused directly at me, jdodson.

Wow, Travis, you mentioned Duke Nukem Forever! I agree with you, it's not all that great. I did play through it, but it didn't appeal to me as greatly as Duke Nukem 3D did. I've thought about trading in Forever, but I know I won't get much back on it.

Thanks, guys for quoting Will Wheaton. If only the rest of the Internet could follow that one simple piece of advice.
