For those of you who missed it over the past year or so, the path of Boss Key Productions was one of being founded by well-known talent, releasing LawBreakers with some buzz, then crashing and burning hard. Founder and face of the company Cliff Bleszinski promises that the circumstances around the studio will be one of the matters discussed in his upcoming autobiography, as he states that he has avoided interviews due to a need to tell this story in his own words and on his own terms.

Bleszinski has not yet shared any of the details about this section beyond the chapter introduction, which emphasizes the stress experienced working in the game industry. It’s unsure how much of it will involve information which was heretofore unavailable and how much will be Bleszinski’s personal reactions to the situation, but you’ll have to wait until more is shared about the book to find out.

I just read the stuff in his screenshot. I’m not going to judge his family affairs considering that you don’t choose family, so not everyone is obligated to feel the same even with deaths.

It is actually weird how he actually says that this is almost as hard as everything worthwhile he did in his life. Which gives me the impression he was completely lost in his priorities.

It gives me the insight for his “fuck off” demeanor. The guy clearly was passionate, but honestly? So what? Any developer worth a damn is passionate. You don’t get a green light to be a prick towards the people that feed you. Specially when they got you a fucking Lambo.

“We are the nerd mafia, we stick together.”

I’ve heard statements like these before. In colleges, universities and such, it is common practice for the staff to actively avoid dealing with incompetence from any of the teachers, i had one of those. Teacher had a PhD in literature, was in the faculty to teach Art History, couldn’t figure out jack shit in the class, made her entire tests through Facebook, and just didn’t want to work. She also DEMANDED that all students applied the PhD quality to her name when presenting any kind of file, test, or paper, even tho she wasn’t a PhD in the field she was “teaching”. The best part was that she actively got angry when we didn’t do that. It was extremely funny because she would have huge meltdowns because of that. The woman was petty as petty can be.

Which is what i’m getting at here: Cliff sounds overly protective of his team, but i’ll be honest, while there’s a shitload of toxicity in gaming, he clearly brought quite a lot of it upon himself. It’s funny that he takes this “protective” posture, when it’s cristal clear that it isn’t him protecting them, it’s him using the facade of team to have a meatwall to protect himself.

And i’m not even criticizing the awful writing. This seems like he wrote that fully punched with PCP.

TL;DR: This guy has some kind of victim’s syndrome, and he literally used his entire history as a footnote to garner sympathy, while using the downfall of his game to once again, spit on the players that gave him the benefit of the doubt, and elevate himself to some kind of “undeserved” hero. If i were any of his exes right now, i would be downright pissed.

Or his brother/sister on finding out that writing that chapter was harder on him than the death of either his nephew or father.

Hmmm. So his commercial failure was harder for him than his family deaths? Yeah, I don’t think I’ll be reading this book. That partial page told me more than enough. I hope the Boss Key collapse didn’t force him to sell off his burgundy Lamborghini.

So a famous douchebag that ruined a games reputation by running his mouth is going to give a tell all story about what was behind its failure?

Boy im sure its a real page turner to get to the shocking reveal of “it me” on an otherwise blank page.

I guess we are supposed to feel bad that it is hard for him to write this chapter in the story of his life? When he mentions on the first page all the money he made and his first (implying more were to come) Lamborghini? Burgundy at that. Way to go bud, totally relatable. I’m sure this will be compelling.

Yeah I honestly can’t get behind this at all. Seems like just more pompousness, and poorly written pompousness at that.

This is going to be really really unbiased coverage of everything, everything, that went down.

This isn’t going to be blatantly slanted in any direction. Nope.

REPEAT WHILE POUNDING

If he actually ended his auto-B there, it would be a Top 10 read.

Two words for Cliffy B about his autobiography. The same two words he gave to critics of his games. The same two words that now describe most people’s opinions of him post-Gears of War and his leave from gaming in general.

“Fuck off.”

“he states that he has avoided interviews due to a need to tell this story in his own words and on his own terms”

Yes, I’m sure that’s the reason and it has nothing to do with wanting to sell his books. Only it’s one of those things we’re only interested enough to read about for free and not pay for. Sort of like how we’ll watch Reality TV at home but not go see it at the Theaters.
