I’m sure I’ve said it before, but imagine you have unlimited budget and a publisher... and the first thing you go to is a generic looking online-only shooter?

WTF.

My “dream game” would hardly be just another first-person shooter. The least they could have done was give it some interesting characters and a unique art style. Battleborn was crap, but at least it tried to have an art style.

And you have to wonder just how creatively and morally bankrupt his employees have to be that at no time did anyone stand up to him and say, “You know, this plays like shit and it looks like nothing.” You don’t have to use those exact words, but at some point someone should have been letting them know that what they were doing just wasn’t working.

When your YouTube gamplay videos are only getting a sum total of 200 views, someone has to know that things are falling apart fast.

All of Design is answering questions. Problem solving. You start out with a big idea, and then it's nothing but an avalanche of question-answering micro-decisions until it's realized. Once you answer certain questions, it becomes very hard to see a different answer.

I think that it would be hard for Cliffy B to think outside of the way he's been thinking for years.

CliffyB should have kept is beef with Epic off of the damn twitter. He is doing nothing but making himself look like a chump to his peers in the gaming industry.

And who the hell the wants to work for a guy that can't keep his ego (much less his mouth) in check.
