Gamedaily GDC 08: CliffyB Talks Gears and Chainsaws

Gamedaily writes: Gears of War 2, despite only getting the briefest of teaser trailers, is still the talk of GDC. Gamedaily just had to catch up with lead designer Cliff Bleszinski and find out more about this anticipated title.

Epic Games' Cliff Bleszinski, lead designer of Gears of War and its just-announced sequel, was able to sit down with GameDaily BIZ between his Microsoft keynote address teaser debut and his Complex Magazine video interview at The Clift Hotel, which was conducted in bed by two lingerie-clad Penthouse Pets, for this exclusive interview on Gears of War 2, GDC and how he's involved in the ever-expanding Gears universe

BIZ: Gears has had a huge following online. What do you like to play online?

CliffyB: I like shooters. Recently I've been hooked on Call of Duty 4. I love their leveling system in there and their perk system is really cool. I've played a lot of Halo 3 but I've played enough of Halo and Halo 2 to know what I'm getting into there so that's when I transitioned over to Call of Duty 4.

BIZ: Are there other games that influenced you in developing Gears 2?

CliffyB: I can't really talk about that at this time. I can talk about games I enjoy playing right now.

Lucky man... I remember they had broke up right when gears of war came out.. Glad he was able to work that all out.

I think it's great that he's such a gamer, because sometimes the people working on the games are not, and because of that you get a crappy game.

But the fact that he plays halo and halo 2 and Call of Duty 4, says a lot on if he will know what is cool to add to Gears of War 2.

Which I must say I am really excited to see what they do. Even though I was never really a fan, the game made me a believer and I did really enjoy the single player campaign and play all the way to the end - which is rare for me.

Gears Of War 2 is indeed on my must have list for 08

I think we can expect some kind of leveling system or perk system or both in GeOW 2.
