Cliffy You Should Remake A Spawn Game.

cliff is a legend and I can't wait to see what he does next.

The picture is ironic to his quote.

The chainsaw gun ain't what he should be concerned about, it's the faux-hawk

some developers try so hard to make a game that will seal their name in the video game industry. meanwhile people like kojima and bleszinski (who I have great respect for) try so hard to get away from that games that made special in the video game industry. I guess I understand where they're coming from, but still you know.

maybe he feels pigeonholed? That gun made him rich and is probably one of the main reasons he's still with the woman he loves rather then her off with some other worthless dude. It's easier to work through your issues when you're not worried about the small stuff like bills and getting back and forth to work with your 300 dollar car.

Being rich and famous only adds to the worries, don't believe me? Look up every story of lottery winners, they all ended badly, look up famous peoples lives, not many happy endings there either huh!

I wish this generation would stop esteeming fame and fortune and be happy with what they have which if it involves at least one loved one makes him/her a rich man/woman.

Cliffy has fame and fortune, but he didn't make it over night (and lets not confuse him with some celebrities... he can walk down a city road). The guy hit it big with Gears, but it was something that happened over time not all at once like lotto winners. The crunch time of Gears put a tremendous amount of stress on his relationship... I don't want to some how trivialize the problems that come out of that, but you compound that with money issues and even the best of couples will eventually crack. Being an overnight rag to riches rarely pans out, but that's hardly this guy's story. That being said I wish him the best and look forward to his continued success and happiness in his professional and personal life.

Tough luck, man. Sorry, but he is from this point on going to be known as the Gears of War guy. Its not a bad thing. It just shows how amazing that game really was.

unless he makes something better

entirely possible

Or maybe jazz jackrabbit, unreal tournaments, bullet storm, shadow complex to name a few.

Shouldn't Morgan and Blair ALSO be talking life after G4?
vallencer  +   1030d ago
I got to meet his wife she's really nice. She came in to the GameStop I work at.
strigoi814  +   1030d ago
i just wonder what actually is his job before in Epic Games...coz i just saw him introduce and hype the gears of war.
UnholyLight  +   1030d ago
He was the Lead Art Director I believe. Also he came up with the Lancer as well from the way it sounds.

Basically like a Ken Levine, David Jaffe, Peter Molyneux those type of guys. Very important people to the creation of a product.
