CliffyB Talks After Finishing Gears 48

Next Generation is carrying an interview with Epic Designer Cliffy Bleszinksi, where he discusses shooters in the next-gen era, what it's like to work with Microsoft, and how it feels to wrap up Gears of War. From the article: "As a designer I don't know if it's ever possible to be fully satisfied but my gut tells me, 'yes'. I sit down and I play the game and I have a blast with it, whether it be single player versus or co-op. I mean, co-op's especially bad. I feel like I'm seeing the whole experience completely new. It's like, if you ever see a cool movie and you bring a friend to see it who hadn't seen the movie yet, right? It's that shared experience, that makes co-op so great."

    So, is it "great" or is it "bad"? WTF?
  • As being independent of each other when running around the level (i.e., Quake) since each user is on a different PC? Or the rubber-band effect because there's only one screen (i.e., Lego Star Wars)?

    Either way, my fellow players insist that I be in front. Apparently, they don't like being shot in the back. It's not my fault they're in my way!

    That is clear from the article.
  • If you go to the website [gearsofwar.com], you can't enter the date because it's Flash and it crashes Firefox. Do you need IE7 to view the website?

      Press TAB to get the cursor to appear in the date box. Awesome website design! It's an XBox 360 game! I'll wait for the Wii version...

      Odd, works fine here on FF2.

      Oh yeah, I'm SO looking forward to a round of 'which FF does it work on.'

      -sigh-
    • i have the same problem... does anyone know what the deal is with this?
    • by kerashi ( 917149 )
      It works fine in Firefox 2.0. Make sure if you're using NoScript to allow gearsofwar.com, as it blocks the flash.
    • Working fine here with FF 1.5

      Check if your Flash install is fucked.

      In Safari 2.0.4 on the Mac, it seems to work, but I closed it because it seems insistent that it, rather than I, am the best judge of the dimensions of my web browser.

      Does the same damn thing in Firefox.

      This was a game for which I actually considered breaking down and getting a 360 because it looked completely bitchin'. Fuck 'em. I'll wait for Halo 3.

    Hey, I can dream, can't I?
    • I concur
      I concur
      I concur ...well, maybe. I'd still want to try out the wiimote with nunchucku attachment before and even then I'd want more than just what was on the GOTY edition. Other mods, maps.

      I mean, if it doesn't have Hall of Giants, screw it.

    I don't know if that's something you want to say.... The first time I watched Pirates of the Carribean 2, my friend (who saw it once before watching it with me) almost fell asleep. A month or two later I saw it again with a friend that never saw the movie and I nearly fell asleep.

    Don't get me wrong, Pirates 2 is a great movie, but I would'

    • Good call, I can't make it through Pirates a second time and I've tried a few times, but I sure as Hell can eat sushi any day of the week and be excited about the next time I get to go.
    • You missed the part where he said a cool movie... I don't know about you but I didn't find the Pirates movies very cool at all... Particularly pirates 2 it dragged on for a children's action flick and then it had no ending!

      Seriously if someone took me to see one of those movies having already seen it themselves, they've have to do something substantial to reclaim their friendship... friends don't take friends to see Pirates of the Caribbean.

      I had the exact same experience with the movie "Butt Pirates of the Carribean."

  • It looks like they're giving away an xBox 360 and the Gears of War game every week until 12/15. Pretty cool game. http://www.servermechanic.com/ [servermechanic.com]
