Mark Rein: "[Shadow Complex] is bigger than Gears!"

OXCGN writes:

"In a sprawling, jovial interview with Mark Rein, Vice President of Epic Games, we got talking about the high overall quality of the titles on show at E3 2009. Eventually we discussed Shadow Complex and what the future holds for XBLA, including the quality and value of downloadable games across all platforms.

The comparison to Gears should not be an afterthought..."

He's jokingly saying that the game is longer than Gears. Obviously not a bigger deal.

But in that vein it is a big deal to resurrect the classic action platformer we all grew up with and give it environmental depth. I hope we see more games like this.

And his comments about "The rising tide has raised all the boats," seems to fall in line with my theory that as the technology in AAA games advances it has trickled down to make better games at lower price points.

I'm not a huge fan of Gears Of War myself, bit it doesn't stop me admiring the effort and work that goes into it, especially from Cliff Bleszinski. The two (Mark) often class with comments and views, so it would be interesting to hear Cliff's views on the industry at this time.

this guy gets on my nerves sometimes, but he is an important part of Epic, so I'll tolerate him.

I need to find that interview were he didn't know Gears came to the PC, that was funny as sh!t...

I'd agree to that as well, I've heard him say an official NO to gears of war 2, or that 'no- Unreal Tournament will not be able to be played on the 360', or other such 'funny' stuff. Whereas Cliff tells it like it is, ansd has been pulled in line at times for doing so.

Asked him if there was more gears on the way last November while he was here (CB) and he said, yes, most certainly, there's loads of stuff, I just can't say what at the moment etc".

So who would you believe . . . sorry, but I'd chose Cliff any day.

Gears is one of the shortest sp available so no surprise here ...
