I wish Cliff Bleszinski would go away.

I mean, it's good, but it's not triple A material.

Point being
He's right.

MysticStrummer2972d ago

Horrible point. Horrible example. CoD is a series that has taken the "More of the Same" method to a whole new level, but there are plenty of developers out there who still build new engines and push boundaries of gameplay, graphics, and storytelling. There will always be AAA titles. Cliffy is just running out of ideas.

lategamer2972d ago

AAA refers to budget & marketing.

Games like Fable, Resistance, Bioshock, Halo, GT, GTA are AAA games.

Games like Geometry Wars, Super Stardust, Calling All Cars, etc. are not AAA games.

He is one of the most overrated guy in the biz. Really.

Sorry but Carmack is a legend my friend

kreate2972d ago

well.. from what I read from n4g...
that legend became a myth.

Hicken2972d ago

When was the last time you were right about something, Cliffy? You're turning into Michael Pachter.

richierich2972d ago

Wow I thought Cliffy would have nothing but positive things to say about nextgen hardware. Didnt he say a few months ago that he wanted nextgen console graphics to look as good as Avatar the movie. Now he's saying the opposite. Make up your mind FFS

HardCover2972d ago

Everybody would want graphics like that. That's not really a unique opinion or anything.

He's speaking realistically here, though. Not what he wants, but what needs to happen in the industry, in his opinion.

testerg352972d ago

WTF are you guys complaining about? Did he even say anything bad?

iamtehpwn2972d ago (Edited 2972d ago )

No. He spoke the truth. Development costs WAYYY too high, and we're setting ourselves up for a disaster if we can't control development costs. He's absolutely right, and most of the people here didn't read or know what he was talking about because if they did, they know this is what a LOT of developers fear right now.

In other words "damn I lucked out with Gears, Microsoft wanted an exclusive blockbuster so marketed my game to death, I couldn't fail but Bulletstorm was a flop and now I'm worried my next project won't have those microsoft millions to carry it through so I'll start slipping out a few excuses ready for me to refer back to in another year or two's time"

lategamer2972d ago

There is so much wrong with this post, I just don't know where to begin.

I think it's the alien avatar that adds to the comment..
