So much hate for someone who brought life into the industry. Gaming needs it faces, and whether you like them or not, it is good for the industry. We need characters.

He was a dick, but I thought he was funny. I was never butt-hurt over what he said, like most people.

If people read past the headlines, they may have learned something, perhaps even seen him differently than what they do now. Too many intellectually inept people believing everything they see. Shame. Especially considering he has accomplished more than most of them ever will. FACT.

E3 2013 Cliffy makes a surprise appearance on stage and announces a brand new AAA killer action Ip for MS's new Xbox.

Doubt it. Microsoft doesnt do new IP's havent you watched the last 3 E3's? I see him going independent with a small studio.

Chill its just wishful thinking.

MS making exclusives for there next console anyway.

According to the rumor they've started on them since 2010. Which makes sense.

2010 they had a good amount of exclusives 2011 was completely dry and this year is a little more than last year, meaning MS need something to tie them in for the holiday and early next year.

See the pattern?

EDIT: it was actually the past 2 E3's. This past E3 they presented more games.

Is it me...or are people giving "sudden" love?
It never occurred to me people actually gave 2 cents about Cliffy.

People are overreacting like hell over this.

It seems people always give sudden love when someone leaves or dies and then a few days later it's back to usual business.

After seeing him on Game trailer's Bonus Round were he put his input on the Gaming industry, it's wasn't that big of a shock why he left.

It's a Knee Jerk reaction.

He has had some large influence though on the gaming industry, so of course there is credit given to him.

But just like David Jaffe, just because you've made a few good things doesn't mean it's a ticket to douche-bag comments about everything else.

Giving credit is one thing. Pretending it's a retiring hero is something else.

Just so long as he does not end up at EA with every game being 'Cliff Bleszinki's' this or that (like they did with the crap games American McGee did).

CliffyB's Beachcomber 12 - finding things in the sand has never been more fun!!

Good luck Cliffy.
