Games As I made very clear in my thorough review of Mass Effect 2, I'm a huge BioWare fan. This relationship got very, very cloudy when BioWare released Dragon Age II, a rush job with no story and atrocious gameplay. Mass Effect 3 looked like redemption - until I hit the terrible, terrible ending. The criticism of the ending has been so immense and consistent, BioWare is contemplating changing it. Of course, this story is riddled with spoilers, so be warned.

Who gives a damn?

Except fanboys. And people wonder why Lucas intensely dislikes these people.

It's immensely funny, because many seem to think that they have formed some sort of "social contract" with X (insert Lucas, Bioware or whatever for X). Ahem, no, you've paid to watch a movie or play a game. You found the experience unsatisfactory? Then don't give them your money the next time around. I wonder how many people actually will.

Except that star wars must have been the most daft sci fi series in history.
Hollywood has the tendency to take the stupidest screenplay's out there and pump millions of dollars in them when there are much better available.
Like Disney's new Carter new movie. It's not plausible. This is what they don't get, although it is sci fi it must still be plausible otherwise it is fantasy.
Take chronicles of riddick. You seriously had to have flying ghosts in them?
And star wars. The main bad dude have to had that ridiculous costume he can hardly breath comfortable in.
Guys (trained by furry little ninja dogs) running around in light sabers fending off laser rounds.

How dare science fiction and fantasy get confused.

Well then he's probably happy since after the last three star wars movies and that appaling indiana jones debacle I doubt there are any fanboys left ;)
