Cliff Bleszinski Spills New #GearsFacts on Twitter

Austin Griffith, Editor-in-Chief at LevelSave writes... "Did you know Marcus Fenix’s last name grew out of Cliff Bleszinksi’s complete loss in his failed first marriage, thus making Gears of War his rise from the ashes? What about the fact that the picture of Dom and Maria from the Gears 2 Special Edition being based on Cliff and his girlfriend at the time? You definitely didn’t know that before pitching Gears of War to Microsoft Cliff did pushups in his hotel room and listened to “Lose Yourself” by Eminem.

These are just a few of the awesome pieces of information Gears of War’s creator Cliff Bleszinski is dropping over on his Twitter, presumably to celebrate the release of Gears of War Ultimate Edition, which releases tonight at midnight."

"The torture the Locust did in Gears was my thinly veiled statement about Gitmo…through a dudebro shooter with lizardmen. #GearsFacts" - Cliff

Guantanamo bay a influence.

Crazy how i could not see this.

I mean, it's a bit of a stretch.

Not really. Solitary confinement and torture? Did you not see the state they found Maria in Gears 2? She was a Husk. Tai was no better and he was a hardened Cog.

This was a really cool read. Never knew how symbolic Gears of War was to Cliffy's life. Makes the whole thing that much cooler

AustinG9091211d ago

Definitely. Knowing that it was so much heart and soul and not just cool ideas in a guys head makes it that much more meaningful to have experienced it.

That's what I heard, I guess his new game is supposedly being announced tomorrow. When I was a teenager, I loved Cliffy B. Gears 1 was one of my favorite games last gen.

fitfox1211d ago

I wasn't aware he was privy to any info regarding the new gears. Isn't he in the free to play space now?

spicelicka1210d ago

You obviously didn't click on the article. It's all tweets he made about Gears facts from the original games, what inspired him, where he got certain ideas from, etc etc.

Gotta appreciate how sentimental the series was for him. I'm glad that Gears 4 is on it's way soon enough, but part of me wishes for Cliffy B to take the helm again.

And on a side note...I wouldn't mind another FPS from Epic. Bulletstorm wasn't perfect, but it sure was pretty to look at ;)
