Bungie writer Luke Smith (Lukems) and Bungie's Sketch factor have assured everyone that the "Maddie, where are you?" slogan in yesterday's teaser was pure coincidence.
Oh dear, oh dear. How will they spin this once the media get wind of it.
A huge majority of tommorow's UK newspapers (Sat Edition) will have this story in them. Us Brits can have a joke about anything over a quick period of time, but there are always people out there who will be shocked about this. You never know, maybe the person who kidnapped Maddie is a Halo 3 fan, and after seeing this may return her. Bungie saves the day! Doubtful, but stranger things happen!
If the person was a halo fan then the media would use that to blame games for all kidnapping thats ever gone on and global warming
That's just funny
Yeah, cause let's face it John Mccain's Daughter isn't human afterall. Why would she do humanisitc things like, breath air, drink water and sleep when she's tired???? She damn sure wouldn't play a videogame if she felt like it either, that's just wrooooooooooooooooooooong!!!! Please, idiot media making a big deal about nothing. Who cares even if she was an active xbox live player? Stranger things have happened. Kanye West gets air time. Edit to Morriss: I'm sorry, I read it all wrong. I was on Gamefaqs earlier and they had a topic about John Mccain's daughter playing xbox 360. http://www.gamefaqs.com/boa... I thought this was a extension of that. NM. I see now why this is an issue since she's gondie
What are you talking about. Madeline McCann not mcCain!! lolz
You are an idiot Silogon. The maddie here refers to a missing british toddler.Madeleine McCann, generally referred to as Maddie. She went missing a year ago in Portugal and there was a massive media campaign to find her all over the world. There still is a campaing ongoing to find her. What a jerk you are
come on guys. He's a yank. How can you expect him to know about anything that happens if its not in the usa.
USA IS DA BARRRMB(bomb) DUDE
Lol, ignorant idiot alert. FAIL.
oh yes, it may be by chance.. but once british press get hold of this, boy its not going to be nice !
who the F*CK is maddie?
google is your friend
She's the 'hide and seek' champion (booooo... what a terrible thing to say)
This reeks of a very bad PR stunt to me...
Unfortunately, I think the same. If it was coincidence, then the guy that came up with it must have been living in Mars for the last few years.
How? Or why even? I doubt anyone in bungie even heard about madeline mccann until this incident.
What's the world coming to...
So you're not allowed to use the word "Maddie" anymore?
hahahahahaha hide and seek champion?well, guess she is.
It sounds to me like one of the bungie staffers lost a dog called maddie (a very common dog name believe it or not) and put this in as sort of a tribute... or something. The chances of anyone in america even knowing about Madeline McCann are very low. Hell hardly anyone outside of the Uk in Europe knows who Maddie is. I'll be keeping any eye out for this in the papers tomorrow... And you know the mass media are going to use it to spin a story. Freakin hate newspapers and hwo things are percieved or told in the mass media. Its the reason the majority of people are oblivious idiots to the real world and can't use thier own logic or reason to approach these kinds of things. Sigh.
Since its on subject... And I can't help myself... Knock Knock Whos there? Not madeline mccann!!!! Whats the difference between madeline mccann and madeling mccann jokes? Madeline Mccann jokes will grow old :P Haha sorry, But if you can't have a sense of humor about these things then you can't joke about anything. Period. I'm sure I'll get some disagrees or minus bubbles for this. But meh. Its only the internet :P
The name is a name. Its use was its use. The coincidence is a coincidence. And the harm.... the harm is that people are running around pointing fingers, clucking tongues, and making absurd allegations rather than moving on and getting back to either being concerned for a missing girl or being excited about an advertisement for a video game.
by pure coincidence they mean they dont want the extra publicity :)
