Cliffy B to Capcom: “Let’s Fix Resident Evil Together”
Former Epic Games designer offers Capcom a hand in times when they deserve a fist.
How they could ignore that boyish smile is beyond us.
God bless this man.
For those unaware, Cliff Bleszinski, the man behind classic Epic Games like Unreal, Unreal Tournament and Gears of War, recently departed from the company in a pretty shocking fashion. Capcom, on the other hand, did it’s own fair share of shocking when fans and reviewers finally got their hands on Resident Evil 6, which is – to put it lightly – a POS.
Of course, this hasn’t escaped Bleszinski, who at one point cited Resident Evil 4 as a strong influence for the development of Gears of War. He recently tweeted the following:
“Hey, Capcom. Call me. We can fix Resident Evil. Together. :-)”
Would Capcom be dumb enough to not do so? It is Capcom we’re talking about after all – the same company who felt that copying third person cover mechanics like Gears of War’s, when that franchise was so inspired by RE4, or introducing a million other crappy things to make their game more “commercial” was vital to the series’ success.
