developer, Bungie, has struck back Mario
creator Shigeru Miyamoto following his churlish comment that he could make Halo
Speaking in an interview, Bungie's head writer, Frank O'Conner, said:
?I just want to go on the record and say that Bungie is hard at work on a side-scrolling platform game featuring some plumbers -- I'm not going to say what their ethnicity is, it's none of anyone's business -- but we took that as a gauntlet, a sort of glove slap, and we're going to respond in 2D scrolling style. That's all I'm saying.?
Frankly, SPOnG's a little bit appalled at all this testosterone flying around. Isn't the ethos of the Halo 3
multiplayer beta that we should all be nice to each other?
Maybe, on Miyamoto's part, his appearance in Time's 203 most influential people of the year
has gone to his head. He might have slipped from his one-time placing of Number 2 to Number 9, but he's still more influential than Osama Bin Laden.
The Halo 3
public beta kicks off its three week run on Wednesday. For SPOnG's impressions follow us this way.
