XCOM's Jake Solomon Could Be The New Cliffy B

Cinemablend "you're probably peeved off your shorts that Cliffy B is hanging up his fanboy boots (we'll miss you, man). Yeah, he's leaving Epic and the gaming industry for a while. No return date in sight (and I'm not crying, my eyes are just dripping man sweat). We'll definitely need a replacement who's always busting up into our news feeds, whether it be for trolling purposes or promotional purposes. The good news is that it looks like someone else is aiming to fill the shoes of the gaming industry's charismatic frontman of game development and it just might be Firaxis' Jake Solomon, the lead designer on XCOM: Enemy Unknown."

Ahaha, Cheapy D ftw...guy always used to come to my rescue even though the Brutes would usually royally murder him.

I hope not. Cliify B turned into a bit of a pompous guy towards the end. This guy is the new Jake Solomon.

Cliffy B is actually pretty cool. I met him in NC once. He will be missed. Classy guy who truly loves gaming.

You know he isn't dead right?

"You know he isn't dead right?"

Can you comprehend what you read? I did say "loves" gaming and not loved.
omi25p  +   931d ago
You also said he will be missed implying we will never see him again. This usually means he is dead.

This man grabbed what was X-Com HD and made it into Silent Storm with aliens.

Which isn't bad per se, but...c'mon.

As long as he's not the next David Jaffe we'll be okay.

Your such a Sony troll dude, every article your there to throw a jab. Get a life.
GillHarrison  +   931d ago
I love the Playstation brand, but I just don't like Jaffe either. That does not make him a Sony troll.
wastedcells  +   931d ago
Sorry guys to be more clear I replied to a post he wrote asking why bring sony into a Xbox discussion on another article and my inbox filled up with PM's from people telling me all about his patterns and what not. Obviously I'm new and didnt know so my reply was honest at the time. Since then I have been seeing it first hand though.... Personally I don't take sides and have every console and handheld as well as a pc, I also value people's opinions and everyone is entitled to theirs. But it's too the point where it's just lame, useless and biast posts after post miss informing people in an attempt to sway opinions.
