Not a big fan of this type of “mainstream” testing.
Sounds very clinical and formulated to me.

Nor am I.  But if Microsoft intends to pull ahead of all others, Halo 3 has to be able to make your breakfast, #### out your lunch, breastfeed your child and #### your wife using your dick.  In short, it needs to be Mainstream.  Not a fan, but I understand where they are coming from.

I think that Bungie has it right.  Making an A+ game that is widely popular is a combination of art and science, and provided that neither tail wags the dog (but both contribute), I agree with and appreciate their analytical genius.

I think it’s a really good idea. The fact that Bungie changed things when people didn’t know where the Hell they were going in the Jungle level makes me believe that they actually want people to enjoy their game.

It was a great article.  It did concern me that Halo 3 (campaign) is going to be too easy.  I guess we’ll see.
