The games introduced new characters that weren’t in the books, so nothings stopping the TV series from doing the same thing.

Nope. Zerrikania is a country that seems to be inspired by Persia and India, albeit being matriarchal instead of patriarchal . So it would be a great opportunity to get some Middle-Eastern and/or Indian actresses/actors.

I never read any of her Halo stuff. The Fall of Reach was an amazing book, but the nature of the universe was never grounded enough as things went along that I never could find rules to hold onto. Too much deus ex macxhina in those novels after awhile.

I should note that some of Traviss’ anti-Jedi stuff seems to be Read more

Right, and considering that the game will almost certainly be about fictional characters in WW2, it’s really not that much of a stretch to imagine a WAC or something stationed in Europe who gets caught up in the fighting

This “clarification” that JonTron has offered makes part of his problem incredibly clear.

It is perfectly possible for a person of a racial or ethnic background other than “Anglo-European” to hold particular prejudice—or even racist beliefs—toward white folk. Similarly, it is possible for a woman to hold sexist beliefs Read more

In general people seem to be much more concerned by the idea of child abuse rather than actual child abuse. Trump groping and sexualizing his daughter in public? No problem. They’re a family. You hear Suzy from down the street’s parents screaming all the time and she never talks? That’s a personal matter, don’t get Read more

Nobody’s offended that MS apoligized, they just think it’s stupid. There’s a pretty big difference.

Politically correct? Why, because I want Duke to feel like an actual 80s action movie instead of a bad parody with strippers because it’s edgy?

You do know know Rhodey was Iron Man for a while on at least two separate occasions right? Because if you’re only complaining about this because she’s not white, which is the only reason most bigots like yourself bitch about legacy heroes who are minorities, then you really lost the argument now.

You know, to be fair to the puppies, I don’t think most of them are bad writers (on the sad puppy side at least. The rabid puppies are nuts). But I also don’t think they write the sort of thing that pings Hugo voters’ radars. Read more

I was raised Muslim and I know I’ll be selling out other Muslims, but even in the glowing terms in which I learned of Mohammad and Aisha, it seemed like a creepy and one-sided relationship. Mohammad was a charismatic man who had a very good friend who betrothed his very young daughter to him. She is not well liked Read more

I’m pretty sure the scholarly consensus is that she was 12-14, as it was the custom in that time, fixed marriage age set around 12 for girls.
