From the Jason Jones Interview-
Do you see Bungie's work as a whole (from Minotaur and PID onwards) to be a continuous progression reflecting the same ideals and themes? Are there any primary influences that have been drawn upon for the bulk of Bungie's creative output; something profound that has somehow manifested itself in all of Bungie's incarnations?
Wasn’t it obvious after Gheritt White, even if you missed it in Pathways?
So my question is, who is he? Maybe he is the link to Marathon-Halo, who knows...
