Wouldn't you know it? My New Yorker subsription accidentally lapses (not sarcasm), and they go and do an in-depth profile of CliffyB in the November 3 issue.
(Incidentally, have you heard about his new game, Gears of War 2? Maybe you have. It supposed to be balls-out fucking in-your-face awesome!!)
Mr. Bleszinski is a smart guy, an interesting fellow. He doesn't make the kind of games that I personally would like to make, but that doesn't mean he isn't really, really good at his job.
And on a side note, this article links to a 2001 article about UO that is totally worth reading. I remember reading it at the time, long before I even knew what an MMO really was. A timely read in light of the fact that Lord British turned in his crown this week.
I'll read both of these tonight!
