"My job as designer of Gears of War is, well, more or less done," writes CliffyB in his latest blog, titled "fin."

Of course, Cliffy "can't speak to the status of gold" ... or can he? During a recent interview with Major Nelson, the designer clearly drops the "gold" word:
"We actually found out like about week before we went gold that [the final boss] was actually too tough to beat, even on casual."
