DISCUSSION

I’ve never even played Fez, but the disappointment over Fez 2 was widely reported. So when I saw that image I was. . . I wouldn’t say happy because I never played the game, but I was like shocked in a positive way that it might have been uncancelled, but I just jumped the gun lol. Back to not thinking about Fez.
