Legendary developer Cliff Bleszinksi just revealed his news studio Boss Key Productions and his upcoming free-to-play shooter codenamed BlueStreak, and answered quite a few questions as part of a Reddit AMA.
Nexon = Maple Story, Combat Arms, Dragon Nest, Vindictus, Mabinogi all popular F2P games with myself enjoying Dragon Nest and Vindictus from time to time. Mabingo has been going strong since 2004! yes 2004! Maple Story has been going strong SINCE 2005, has 39 million active users and has made Nexon over $300 million a year for 4 years straight and helps Nexon do $1.5 billion in yearly revenue. So yeh the Maple Story guys is a COMPLIMENT!
"When Nexon came calling I laughed. “The fucking Maple Story guys?!”"
I liked dragon's nest until I browsed the cash shop. Same with many nexon games. So, yes, maybe they are good at publishing, but are they good for consumers too? It's been a few years since I tried dragon's nest, I hold no delusions of it changing or of it not changing...
nexon=CHEAP that's it...they need work and they work for cheap.
Legendary, lol... Im happy Cliffy is back but can we please stop calling him Legendary. The writer must have a crush on him.
There's not a lot of devs that created two iconic game series and one of those game series being a billion dollar franchise. You can hate Cliff all you want but the dude is a top 10 dev in the business and his resume more than backs it up.
Hate all I want....ahh did you not see the part where I say "i like cliffy" Do us a favor and find any other stories calling this guy Legendary. Nothing against Abriel but hes done it twice. Maybe to some he is. Just over my 20yrs of gaming I dont see him as Legendary. So are you putting him in same tier as Kojima or Sakaguchi?
Lead Designer of games like UT, Jazz JackRabbit and Gears of war is Legendary in my books.. He is making games when he was just 16..So, show some respect...
Expecting a non pay to win game from Nexon. That's a good one.
Very cool, I like the concept art in the link, gives me the S.T.A.L.K.E.R vibe. Its a nice setting.
I don't like the concept art. I don't want to see enemies that blend into the environment. I want my opponents to be illuminous green, or at the very least blue or red. I tire of games when the challenge of combat is seeing your opponent before they see you. This game + Unreal Tournament are my best hopes to break that mould, so I don't want to see concept art with subtle colours :(
One thing that's really annoying me is all this talk of nothing shown. At least have a CG trailer, not just pre-production art.
He will "take a salary of $1 a year until the studio can turn a profit." I think this is really cool and shows that he really does have a passion for this kind of stuff.
He is lining up some kind of scam where he sues himself for paying less than minimum wage, and somehow turns a profit from the lawsuit. I know that makes no sense, but I don't see what else the dollar can be for :)
Gears 3 still owns my life so he's ok with me
Ha ha bravo Cliffy boy stick it to the man. Mwuahahahahhh
