If Microsoft wasn’t “squeamish” about that sort of thing. The news comes via Gears of War Creative Director Cliff Blezinsky, who says that that fanfic you’ve got moldering in your dresser drawer, he’s already tried to make it a reality. Well, not in those exact words. “I’ll let you in on a secret. I actually approached Microsoft on getting Master Chief into the game,” CliffyB confided.
“One of Halo’s successes is that it’s a soft M [rating]. Gears pushes it further. I’m creatively comfortable with that, though it can limit what you do. If you had to break it down, I’d say that Gears is like Mortal Kombat and Halo is like Street Fighter,” he added. “But if we were to get Master Chief, we’d get his model, put him in a COG suit, make it blow up, and do some test animation work.”And maybe put the resulting mess of space marine suits in one of those giant mechs and make it a giant metal matryoshka. That does sound kind of awesome.
