Hail To The Chimp: Family Friendly Satire

Alexander "The Man" Seropian (or should it be "The Chimp" from now on?) throws poop at GameSpot today about Wideload's upcoming party game for the Xbox 360 and Sony Playstation 3.

Is there going to be political satire? Yes, says Seropian. The Bush:Chimp comparisons are obviously unavoidable, but am I the only one who thinks the hippo looks like Steve Ballmer?

Family friendly? Yes, says Seropian. More so than Stubbs the Zombie. After all, rotting zombies making jerk-off motions to mad scientists might be funny for a lot of us, but not everbody wants their little John and Janie watching it, I suppose.

And the other projects? The trademarks Wideload applied for, "Cyclone" and "Founding Fighters"? "What projects?" asks Seropian.

There are, of course, a lot more questions and much more detailed answers at GameSpot, so go read the entire interview. Thanks for the heads-up to N1NJ4 in #wideload on irc.bungie.org.
