Phil Fish: I Love Nintendo In Ways It Probably Doesn't Deserve

Fez creator attempts to clarify anti-3DS comments
Yesterday, we reported on FEZ creator Phil Fish's comments regarding Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate on the 3DS. He posted a rant on Twitter which was quickly picked up by eagle-eyed Nintendo fans, who pounced on his percieved negativity towards the Kyoto company and its dual-screen hardware.
Predictably, Fish has taken to Twitter again in an attempt to clarify his stance. He says he's been taken out of context, and is in fact a massive Nintendo fan.
i guess i need to better express myself. because i like the DS and 3DS just fine in many, many ways.— PHIL FISH (@PHIL_FISH) March 25, 2013
and i love nintendo in ways it probably doesn't deserve. sucks to be painted as this massive hater for pointing out a few aspects i dislike.— PHIL FISH (@PHIL_FISH) March 25, 2013
i own every iteration of the GBA, 3 DSes and one 3DS, i was going to get the XL too but that stupid circle pad wouldn't fit on it.— PHIL FISH (@PHIL_FISH) March 25, 2013
so clearly im a hater.— PHIL FISH (@PHIL_FISH) March 25, 2013
i dont think that "DS AND 3DS ARE BULLSHIT!" i think some aspects of their designs are inelegant. doesn't mean i dont like them.— PHIL FISH (@PHIL_FISH) March 25, 2013
i'll say something, and it will get RTed out of context. people who dont follow me, see it out of context, make up their minds on the spot.— PHIL FISH (@PHIL_FISH) March 25, 2013
Perhaps Mr. Fish should be a bit more aware of how comments on a public forum like Twitter can be "taken out of context" and spread around the web. Do you think he's been treated harshly in this case? Or is he just back-peddling in the face of fan-boy rage? Drop a comment to share your opinion.
