Well barring an act of God or either Sony or Nintendo pulling out some absolutely earth-shattering megatons, it looks like M$oft has this E3 squared away. What an incredible conference for them.

Halo is coming back to PC on an engine that isn't 15 years old. I can die happy now.

Yes, I realize alternate history has been around since, well, history. It's not the genre that is concerning but rather the subject matter. And the circumstances surrounding the development of it. I know they think they're being topical and trendy by creating a controversial show, but having a couple of white dudes (who already are sexist/misogynist in their writing, might as well add racist to the mix) create a story that is more or less a white supremacist's wet dream is just not cool, no matter how you spin it.

Do I think they will do the same sort of thing with the Star Wars brand? No, and Disney would pull the plug on them faster than you can say "Mickey Mouse" if they did. But they are proven to be problematic in their writing and direction, and Star Wars really doesn't need their particular brand of 'shock factor'in its cinematic universe.

Speaking of cinematic universes, SW is going to get too big. I guess we should have seen this coming the second ol' George cashed his cheque, but I had hope Star Wars wasn't gonna go the Marvel route. But with Solo coming out this year, episode IX coming next, Johnson's trilogy and now however many movies these jabronis are gonna make... the forecast is cloudy with a chance of Star Wars for the restof eternity. And it doesn't look good.

I mean, they're also the same guys making that god-awful 'alternate history' Civil War crap. You know, white guys making their own fan fiction about "what if we could still have slaves that'd be cool".

Game of Thrones is alright but those two are the last people I would want to touch Star Wars.
