Cliffy B. tweets out cryptic message related to Activision

Coming from Cliffy B.s' twitter...



Pretty interesting.


Any discussion that comes up for now is just speculation, but it's not hard to pull together a message from this tweet. Could Cliffy B. be on his way to Activision?

So what?

It's actually a natural progression: an idiotic, moronic douchebag working in an immature asshole of a company.

I don't understand why this is news here, but whatever, thanks for letting us know anyway.

Like other big names who have joined Activision, his next game may be very good but probably wont sell. Rather than give it another shot and promote it Activision will close his studio and he'll end up elsewhere. Tis the Activision way! Say what you want about EA but at least they give studios another shot.

Indeed, it's quite fitting for him. HE tries so damn hard to seem like a fratboy, but he'll always be a nerd. You can't act that way when you're in your 30s and beyond without looking like a twit.

I wouldn't go that far... but agreed.

@DeMatador

couldn't have said it better myself.

there's something about him which is just so unbelievably annoying. It's like some 12 year old from the Neogaf community got a job as a developer.

Pretty much agree with you guys on that one. And wasn't he talking about being burned out or a bit tired of it all right now? What sense would it make to head over to the company that treats their devs like sweat shop children? None really

smart man , at the very least for the initial starting game he will receive a massive salary , let's not forget how much the top 20 made out and also those music guys . Now for the rest , it's no guarantee at all . I don't think his name carry a lot of weight just like any of the others celebrities developers . Which is a shame , but that's how it is , hardcore gamers fps gamers are more attached to the name of the studio .

In any case , activision is still a better bet for his game to come on a nintendo platform . EA , take two and square enix would be the worst .

are you guys.... confusing Cliffy for Marc Rein? I don't remember Cliffy B ever saying anything especially inflammatory or annoying. He's a huge Nintendo fan and he's been pretty candid about his love for them. Is the hate because he doesn't make games for Nintendo systems? He knows what he's good at and he does it well.

Ahaha, I don't even know if any of his games are on Nintendo platforms, I just know the guy's a dick. I really don't care whether he likes Nintendo or not, that's fanboy thinking.

By the way, does opnely insulting critics for giving Gears of War III a 8/8.5 scores count as "anything especially inflammatory or annoying"? I could go on, too.

...In fact, I will.

Tell me if you need any more proof of him being a troll.

The scores thing is pretty dickish. The other two read to me like just a guy expressing his opinion, not someone being obnoxious on purpose. I know exactly what he means when he says he's not doing a Metal Gear game even though I love Metal Gear. He doesn't like the Sony controller....big deal. Of all the people in gaming out there spewing outlandish and attention-whorey opinions, Cliffy B has to be around the bottom.

@DeMatador

Yeah, I'm am in the agreement with FollowMeAround. Cliff isn't really that bad. It seems more like your dislike of the kinds of games he make is just clouding your judgment. I'm not a fan of Gears or what it symbolizes (dudebros), but even I respect the guy's love for games and his ability as a game designer. From what I've seen he's actually a pretty nice guy.

The two links you provided, I don't see anything wrong. He doesn't insult anyone or anything, he just express his (mostly tame) opinions. Is no different than anyone else saying that and a lot better than you straight-up insulting him.

I think this "super-macho-frat-boy" vibe you guys are getting from him is a bit...off. Obviously I don't know the guy personally (and frankly, neither do any of you), but if his tweets are anything to go by, he's a genuinely likeable (and reasonable) person.

Oh some guy made remarks I don't like once or twice? Acts like a frat dude? What a complete fucking douchebag. I'm gonna act like he's never said or done anything nice in his whole miserable life because I wanna have a strong opinion on the internet.

God damn, nothing like hyperbole in the morning.

"OMG he just expressed opinions! Game developers aren't allowed to do that! what a troll"

Haters gonna steadily drain my faith in humanity
