Cliff Bleszinski Spills New Gears of War #GearsFacts on Twitter

Written by Austin Griffith

Did you know Marcus Fenix’s last name grew out of Cliff Bleszinksi’s complete loss in his failed first marriage, thus making Gears of War his rise from the ashes? What about the fact that the picture of Dom and Maria from the Gears 2 Special Edition being based on Cliff and his girlfriend at the time? You definitely didn’t know that before pitching Gears of War to Microsoft Cliff did pushups in his hotel room and listened to “Lose Yourself” by Eminem.

These are just a few of the awesome pieces of information Gears of War’s creator Cliff Bleszinski is dropping over on his Twitter, presumably to celebrate the release of Gears of War Ultimate Edition, which releases tonight at midnight. If you haven’t already, you can grab Gears of War Ultimate Edition on Amazon.

It’s an interesting look at the inside of Gears of War, where it came from, how it was born, and what goes on in the mind of the mad-genius behind it.

We’ve compiled all of Cliff’s #GearsFacts below, and we’ll update them as he does.

And that’s all, folks!
