The Bungie Weekly Update
backtracks from lead network engineer David Aldridge's GDC comment earlier this week
saying their next project is a massively multiplayer action game (thanks Big Download
). They are now claiming this is a joke, invoking endless Charlie Sheen references in their explanation:
Tired of pretending that heís not a -blam!-iní rock star from Mars, David Aldridge inhaled a huge hit of David Aldridge at GDC yesterday. Subsequently, his face melted off and children wept over his exploded body. After the childish tears, gelatinous gibs, and acrid smoke cleared, an industrious journalist noticed the final slide from Davidís GDC deck which apparently proclaimed that we were hiring for a "massivelyÖmultiplayer action game." Ruh oh.
Now, in rehearsal Aldridge was convinced that everybody got the joke. It was all in the delivery, he assured us, and he was certain it was clear that he was playfully riffing off of the recent rumors. Unfortunately, most people canít figure David out Ė they canít process him. And we donít expect them to. You canít process David Aldridge with a normal brain. Youíd need tiger blood and Adonis DNA.
