Anthemic

One of the things that results from this level of industry consolidation is even more consolidation. It happens for all the same reasons that the original ones did, the preconditions still exist, but then when the FTC asks you why this merger is necessary, you just gesture out your window at the Kaiju Amalgams they've feted previously. You indicate their chimerical body plan, the gnarled tusks, the trail of smoking, emerald slime behind them, and you say there's no way for us to even exist in this place with those things running around. Look at its taut, distended belly, the trapped spirits swirling within, desperate for release. It doesn't even matter what we make, they will say, our industry is a feeding ground. We must become monsters, or we will be food for monsters.

As a corrolary to the assertion that there are certain flavors of stupid you can only learn at college, I think we have to say that there are certain types of harm that only the very, very well-intentioned can even aspire to.

The first couple minutes of the first episode of Halo, I was like… shit, man. Okay. Maybe we're getting somewhere. But then as soon as Chief comes in, clearly, obviously, definitely swiping at things that aren't actually there - like man in the throes of some kind of episode - I stopped it.

Until I saw the latest trailers, I could take or leave an Obi-Wan show. You literally never know what you're gonna get from these guys anymore. They managed to fuck up Boba Fett, somehow! Then, if you see the trailer, and you have any affection for Star Wars at all - any pure remnant of the joy they have spent hundreds of millions of dollars reducing to ash - you might think to yourself, well, maybe I'm in for one more go-'round.
