Halo 3: ODST producer Alex Cutting loves Bungie. Really really loves Bungie. Uncomfortably so. He kisses the development team’s ass with hyperbolic statements that border on obsessive infatuation. Speaking with VideoGamer, Cutting showers Bungie with praise. A lot of it.
Cutting says, “Bungie is an awesome partner. They say this a lot, and I believe it, they make the games they want to play. What’s cool about Halo games is, you can be a year out from their actual street date, and the game’s playable. People are actually playing the game at that point. We can watch people play, and we can get 60 people’s feedback on just one experience in that game and polish that thing and hone it until it’s triple A quality.” Cutting continues on with just how awesome Bungie really is, “They also have incredible artists. The skies and the environments in that game are in my opinion unequalled. They’re a triple A talent up and down, from design to art to execution, they’re awesome.” And in case you weren’t sure whether or not Cutting likes Bungie, he adds, “Everything Bungie puts on the table is awesome.”
It would benefit Bungie greatly if they served Cutting a restraining order before he tries to assassinate a president to get their attention like John Hinckley, Jr..
