CliffyB and Epic: Even More Rich

Gears of War 2, one of the biggest games of 2008, was released last Friday, selling 2.1 million copies.  The game is by Epic Games, a studio in Cary, and is the pet project of lead designer Cliff Bleszinski, or CliffyB, a downtown Raleigh resident.  Bleszinski has had a string of mega video game hits and even though you might run into him on Glenwood South, he is a bona fide celebrity for the adolescent boys and 20-somethings who play his games. You may also have seen his Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder riding around town; Blezinski is known for being showy, just like his games.

Well, with 2.1 million out of the gate like that, Blezinski and Epic are about to be getting a whole lot more wealthy.  Let’s be glad they are right here in the Triangle and spending their money in Raleigh.

    its so strange to see this because you might have read a very similar thing about me recently…

    “Mammalpants has had a string of mega good things and even though you might run into him on Ashe Avenue, he is a bona fide celebrity to the moms about town who like his style and good manners. You may also have seen his Subaru riding around town; Mammalpants is known for being showy, just like his other things.”

    Did you guys plagiarize from my interview? Im just sayin.

    Oh please! Mammalpants is no friend to “moms around town”.  Get a job dude… seriously.  CliffyB works hard for his money.
