Uh...I'm Not So Sure Cliff Bleszinski Is What Resident Evil Needs
Talented designers can usually be relied upon to make any game better. At the same time, some guys just aren't a good fit for certain franchises.
Former Epic Games design director and Gears of War guru Cliff Bleszinski took to Twitter earlier today, politely informing Capcom that he has the cure for what is ailing the vaunted Resident Evil franchise.
"Hey, Capcom. Call me. We can fix Resident Evil. Together."
Maybe he could help fix a few of the issues that some fans complained about after RE6 hit store shelves. But it seems the hardcore long-time followers aren't interested as much in the shooter/action aspects, as they're far more hopeful of a return to true survival/horror...and no offense, Cliff, but that's not what you do. In fact, it's essentially the opposite of what you do. If you want to help fix something, go knock on Danger Close's door; Medal of Honor: Warfighter is an FPS but it's more in your wheelhouse, I think.
Then again, who knows? Maybe CliffyB has always, in his heart of hearts, wanted to help create the next Alone in the Dark.
