In the run up to the Gears of War 3 multiplayer beta, lazygamer.net caught up with Epic Games' vivacious design director Cliff Bleszinski to discuss the impact of the beta.
why is it that every headline with cliff in it, gears of war has to be in the same sentence? am i missing something? surely everyone here knows this dude by now? or am i mistaken? and even if they dont, why is it that we dont hear GT5s kazanuri yamauchi, or metal gear solids heideo kojima referenced in the same way? just a thought. people need to work on there headlines.
I think that for an interview, it makes sense. You want to give people who don't follow every bit of gaming news a reference point. But yeah, I agree that it's odd you don't see hat as much with other devs.
Best part of the interview: "LazyGamer: 8. Do people need to have played the first two titles to understand what’s happening in the third or are you going to catch people up somehow, how? Cliff: Absolutely not! There are many great games that I personally didn’t get into until the third game in the series – Burnout 3 and GTA 3 come to mind." Waittt.. did Burnout had a story?! Can someone please tell Clifford or Cliff or Clide something about GTA being a non story sequel related game. PS: CB, if you are readind«g this, feed on my tears... T_T ahahahahaaa /s
Why the hell is Cliff Bleszinski involved in every second article on n4g?
LOL. Just goes to show how nonsensical the story in Gears is.
Because he's the more sought after. He exlplained in his GDC speech how he's the opposite of what other devs are, but he wished more people would step out into the limelight. The gaming industry needs faces in my opinion--different personalities to represent for the community. Cliff just so happens to have been the person to step up the most.
I agree,gears of war and cliff has been one the faces of the gaming industry.i,m glad to be part of an industry that dominates entertainment and sets bold new standards of interacting with our games.
A very short interview...
Rather that than long winded 20 page things
