CliffyB: Don't Call My Comeback a Comeback

And don't call me CliffyB! Thanks nin for word that Cliff Bleszinski tweets about plans for a comeback, complete with an admonition (and hashtag) not to call it that. The former Epic designer says we'll learn more of his plans over the coming week:

I'm officially coming out of retirement to make video games again.

Stay tuned here for details in the next 7 days!

I'm not sure what he expects to do on his own so I'll wait until there's more info.

@ Beam,

He's just livin' up to his name. At least there's no false advertising!

On the other hand, one does wonder why he bothers.

Heh, right after I posted that I took a closer look at the name and went "Oooooh. At least he knows it."

Your posting history is a pleasure:
1st most recent post: "it keeps scrubs like you out," plus one swear
2nd: removed
3rd: "most overrated shooter ever."
4th: "that site is god awful."
5th: "it's a stupid fragfest," plus two swears
6th: "kindly fuck off," so one swear
7th: "looks fucking lame," so another swear
8th: well, nothing wrong with this
9th: "Tired of Roguelikes..." not a horrific post, but still super negative
10th: "I could give two shits."


You're a very lovely person contributing so much positivity and constructivity to this world.

OH, I don't doubt he has money. And he wouldn't be the first KS to ask for others funds instead of his own, either...


Oh absolutely. What I mean is that he may possibly try a Kickstarter, it's just one of those where I'd be like "Yeah, no. If you believe in this that much, you can fund it yourself." I'll never say that rich people shouldn't be allowed to use Kickstarter but I do think it's not necessarily within the "spirit" of it.

No chance he doesn't control his own IP.

I think you seriously overestimate the amount of money the guy has. Unless he's going to make an indie game / small budget game, of course.

Someone like him doesn't need cash for that, though. He has clout. Any publisher would want to work with him, and they'd give him full control over his IP to do so. He's spent a career printing money. They want a chunk of that.

Think of it like a no-trade clause in the NHL. You don't get one for being a winner, you get one for just being a name that will put butts in seats.

He was interviewed a couple of years ago by Aisha Tyler on her podcast. While he isn't a snob, but he's definitely got tons of cash, and is completely disconnected from the lives of normal people. Every time he told some story or described some problem, it was for some event that totally showed how much cash the guy has.
