“HEY LOOK! NINTENDO BOY’S RUNNING AWAY TO HIS NINTENDO!”

Cliff Bleszinski got personal about getting bullied, family, and his career at PAX East.

Amid jokes, opinions and a bit of self-affacement, the former Epic Games design director took to the stage with “Storytime with Cliff Bleszinski,” a series of stories about himself, video games and how the two have been inseparable for as long as they’ve been together.
