Former Epic Games designer Cliff Bleszinski has expressed interest in giving Capcom a helping hand in fixing the Resident Evil franchise.
Writing on Twitter, the man formally known as CliffyB stated, “Hey Capcom, call me. We can fix Resident Evil. Together. :)"
In response, Capcom’s U.K. arm requested that Bleszinski “bring pizza.”
The Gears of War head honcho’s comments also attracted attention from Capcom fighting boss Yoshinori Ono, who offered:
“I’m very glad to hear it! Ono Tweeted, adding: “Do u interested in Street Fighter ;p”
Bleszinski quit Epic Games last month after spending more than 20 years with the high-profile developer, stating he needs a “much needed break” from the videogames industry.
Resident Evil 6 was released on October 2 to mixed reviews from critics, though still managed to make quite a dent in the software charts. PSU.com was quite impressed with the game however, as you can see in our review here.

Thus began the horror of "Resident Gears".... UGH. no thanks Not a 'CliffyB" fan so I for one am not eager to see him push RE even further down the wrong path.

The only game that makes me jump is "dead space", RE is all about action now!

What surprises me isn't that Cliffy B said such a thing, because he's a charismatic individual and generally speaks his mind, but that Capcom actually responded with the equivalent of 'cool beans'. When the developer and publisher of a once-proud franchise is completely open to taking "fixes" from other developers, you know all pride is lost.

Imo, the only way they are going to fix RE6, and the franchise completly, is to go back to it's roots.
START OVER!! =)

I knew Gears was "inspired" by RE4
