CliffyB Says "Don't Call Me 'CliffyB'"
Apparently Cliff Bleszinski, best known as the lead designer of Gears of War, is tired of his nickname “CliffyB,” and want to drop the famous moniker. He basically said that it’s “time to grow up a bit,” since the name originated back when he was a 20-something working on Unreal Tournament games. Now he’s in his early 30′s and at the height of his career, so he seems to want a more professional standing in gamers eyes. Unfortunately, I don’t think I could really spell his last name off the top of my head to save my life (my first attempt came out a “Blesininzski”). As such, I’m just going to refer to him as “Cliff Johnson,” as in “Cliff Johnson’s Gears of War 2 is looking sweet.”
