As far as i know, its just because hes a strongly opinionated, grandiose, over-night millionare.
An example of his grandiose behavior would be announcing over twitter his intentions to get a psychonauts sequel made
But who cares? The guy obviously has great creative energy and wants to potentially support a sequel to psychonauts. I cant imagine complaining.

"Schafer promises he and Notch are having a "lovely chat" about the possibility, and jokingly says the indie millionaire is a tough negotiator -- at his insistence that the game be dubbed "PsychoNotch.""

~Joystiq

Even if it was a joke, I some how don't think its very far off from the truth. lol

^ Maybe Raz will now need to enter Notch's mind. Aren't you specially eager to explore his nightmares?

Not only is it a joke, but it's also funny.

And still no-one from the Notch-bashing crew has explained what their problem with Notch is...

I already explained myself. Its his hipster/douchebag attitude toward other game developers.

Actions speak louder than words, I think.
And I like that he's just a normal guy who happens to have a lot of money.

Well the real opinion should start when development begins so I guess i'll give it all a chance.

I'm not that up-to-speed on inter-developer relations...

:/ He is pretty vocal and a lot of it is seen over on interviews on kotaku and posts on his forums.

Some people on this forum (not to mention any names) are just very sensitive and can't take any kind of criticism no matter how appropriate it is. There's nothing wrong with Notch.

"My God.
Is it just me, or did Notch become an arrogant little fucker now.
He has all this money, he’s doing stupid shit to top it all off.
He’s violating copy right infringement laws.

Don’t get me wrong;
I was supporting him when Zani was suing him for the copyright thing.
But, I read more into it and yeah it’s completely his fault. Notch was being a dick.

Also, on top of it.
He makes fun of Bethesda’s attorneys and challenges them to a game of Quake.
Yeah it was funny at the time, but he wasn’t taking any responsible action.

Plus this:
http://www.pcgamer.com/2011/10/25/no...s-not-players/

Everyone is entitled to their own opinions.
But Notch is jumping the gun when making this absurd statement.

Imma go ahead and say that he started becoming a douche bag when
“I don’t even check the price of my groceries anymore”
was stated by him in an interview.

But really?
Is he a douchebag cause he’s finally rich as fuck;
or was he always a douchebag? "

His ego is so huge he thing he is better than everyone. Its not criticism, its not jealousy. Its the fact he literally is a complete DBag.

When someone does something that bothers you, you would talk to them and they most likely will respect what you have said and make changes.....not use excessive sarcasm and make dry jokes and not do anything at all like Notch does in practically all things related to the professional game industry.

What's wrong with that? I think he's completely right.

And come on when you're famous, every sentence you ever say or write gets analyzed by millions of people who slant your words into things which can become totally out of context. It's possible to make any famous person look like a total idiot.

But alright. You just don't share his views or sense of humor and I suppose there's nothing any more discussion will do to change that.

Wouldn't you also wave your maserati around just for kicks? I would since I deserved it.
(You're sounding a bit bitchy there with all that nitpicking, man.)

Semantics aside, he's being thickheaded with his "F2P + future = game developers" remark, since it's all about how it's done. But hey at least it's just a dude's half-decent opinion and not a tunnel vision cruzade like that of Jaffe, about storytelling in the medium.

I got my boyfriend to play Psychonauts by gifting it to him on Steam (it's not that he didn't want to, but rather that he didn't have time, and a stack of other games he wanted to get to at some point. Like many of us, I imagine. ). He enjoys it, but finds that playing it with Mouse and Keyboard is very hard. That's what I felt back when I first played it too, but the now I played with an Xbox 360 controller, and it worked great. Also, they seem to have changed some really nasty parts (read: That one escort at the end) to be a lot less annoying.

And now I got my dear an original Xbox "Duke" controller (you know, the one you could knock someone out with in real life. My dear is tall, and it's just the right size to be comfortable for him. ), plus two adapters so that he can use it. So yeah, soon he'll be able to play Psychonauts without the distraction of slightly annoying controls.
