Cliffy B Offers To ‘Fix’ Resident Evil
Unfortunately, you’ll have to file this under ‘things that will never happen’, but it’s hilarious nonetheless. So here goes!
We all know how Resident Evil 6 was not universally loved. Our own Phil Hornshaw gave it 75/100, and for good reason. It’s kind of a mess and perhaps strays too far from the series’ roots while retaining legacy features that do nothing but frustrate in the current incarnation. Lots of long time fans of the series came away from RE6 feeling significantly let down, among them, none other than former Epic braintrust Cliff Bleszinski. Having recently left his position at Epic after 19 years, he’s currently planning his next move, and apparently this includes trolling his colleagues.
Over the weekend, he tweeted this hilarious offer to Capcom: “Hey, Capcom. Call me. We can fix Resident Evil. Together. ” Giggle. Apparently, the a lot of people want to see this happen because the tweet was shared by more than a thousand people. Capcom took it in stride, responding that they’re interested, so long as Cliffy agrees to “bring Pizza.”
Cliffy later admitted he was a bit cocky, but that doesn’t make him wrong. Resident Evil was a serious misstep. Do better, Capcom! And as for Cliffy? Get a job hippie! (j/k).
