    Is that a tweet from a random cryptobro or NFT enthusiast? Nope, that's commentary from the writer of the article.

    This is the desired world they built. They wanted transactions that could never be reversed.

    It is messed up… that it’s this way on purpose.

    You don’t have any way to prove it wasn’t just constantly jacking him off. Maybe Master Chief just has a very subdued O-face.

    I swear the Halo show sounded like someone wanted to do their own mil sim scifi show, but couldn't get anyone to look at it so they used Halo as set dressing.

    Like Halo's story is normally like a d grade for writing, but the show is fucking dire.

    I would like some money because these are artisanal nuggets of wisdom philistine.

    I mean that's literally business culture in the US at least. Like a company will fail the people at the top who need it least and who probably contributed most to the failure are given money on the way out, the people who busted their asses have literally nothing to show for it aside from a pink slip.

    I cannot stress to you enough that all of Halo was deliberate

    This wasn't somebody coming in with a different thing and slapping IP on it, this was the culmination of a decade of a million cooks in a too-big kitchen, throwing the most expensive spaghetti at the wall that they could

    The real problem is that there were too many People Of Power who had too many different ideas about what, "A Halo Show" should mean. The show couldn't commit to any one version, got pulled in too many directions, and got ripped apart in the process. One synechdoche for the multitude of difficulties in adapting the property: Master Chief. He is a video game protagonist and is in no way a character with enough depth to carry a TV show. Make him more human and he's no longer recognizably Master Chief to people who've only played the games, which is what executives assume the core audience will be. Putting an emotionally-inert, largely-wordless character at the center of a show requires you to take big stylistic swings around him, a la Mandalorian's first season, which requires taking big risks with your first big-budget foray into adapting a massive game property for the screen, which is gonna terrify money people.

    I think they could have made a good Halo show, if there had been a Halo movie to get Master Chief outta their fuckin' systems so they could do different tonal things in the show. But there was no way the First Halo Thing being a TV show was ever gonna work, in my opinion.

    The Spartans are being suppressed emotionally through a chip implanted into their back. When Chief takes it out, he experiences emotions he hasn't since childhood. Then he meets the enemy spy, who is a pretty girl, and immediately becomes attracted to her. It is noted very explicitly in the dialogue that this is a new thing for him, and when they have sex later, it is his first time. He's pretty ready to commit treason for her BECAUSE it's his first time.

    Asterisk here that I haven't played it for several years, mind

    P5 was my first Persona, I named my guy Ren Bayoneta, because Ren was the ""canon"" name of the protagonist and Bayoneta because Bayonetta was too long and there was a bunch of memes at the time of him and Bayo being related because of Smash, it was dumb but I thought it was funny.

    I'd agree in the general sense, but the show is pretty clear they were dead to the world and shut down, not being stimulated to the point of being over it. Not that the running joke makes even the slightest bit of sense to begin with, just saying the show seemed engineered to shut it down on purpose.

    Surprisingly, they did keep that aspect in the show.

    And they still managed to make abused, kidnapped child soldiers look like a thing that the show viewed as “a little morally grey” at worst.
