The most shocking news about Megan Thee Stallion''s game with Master Chief is that of all the events coming out of this year''s Twitchcon streamers'' convention.
If you want to see Halo Infinite take some much-needed downtime from fighting The Banished, here''s how to see it here. Like many twerking videos, it has ended up making me think about post-modernism.

This week I''ve had a mixed reaction to video game news seeing the funky fresh moves of a Chief cosplayer so readily adopted by a so-called big voice in pop culture.
As surreal as it may seem, dancing Master Chief cosplayers are nothing new. It''s a profound benefit to seeing an emotionally constipated supersoldier make a move as he was at a Final Fantasy 14 nightclub. It''s assurmountable as it feels, however, seeing the stoic human-saving Spartan get his groove on fills a hole in my soul that I didn''t know.
Fans began imagining mashups of the two games when Doom Eternal and Animal Crossing: New Horizons shared a release day. But yes, they were recognizing them, but the developers agreed: ''It''s always been a lot of joy to be found by fans taking characters in wacky and unexpected directions.''

The transition from fandom comedy to featuring in a full-blown performance with a world-renowned artist is certainly a step up. For the most part, fans have responded positively, in contrast to Chris Pratt''s performance in the first Super Mario Bros trailer. It must be said that Pratt''s attempt to disregard the distinct hues of a Brooklyn accent does leave a strange rebirth.
The relatively newfound role of Master Chief and Mario are under the rays of pop culture. As video games become more ensconced in pop culture, we''ve seen as characters have twisted and twisted to fit more mainstream molds. Although this isn''t a bad thing by default, seeing beloved characters change this way may be frightening.
As humanity''s defender, we''ve come to know him through the narrow lens of the Halo games, but it''s fun to see him twerk on stage with Stallion or recreate memes, but it does force me to see him in a broader sense than the sci-fi supersoldier. He''s becoming less and less Halo''s Master Chief, and more Master Chief, as seen in the Halo games.
My desire to emulate Mario is stronger yet. It''s clear that he has grown on Goombas even before he was born. Despite appearing in a wide spectrum of games and genres, than Master Chief, they''ve always been in the context of being a Nintendo games company that tightly controls tone and standards. Now I have to recontextualize a character who has previously felt that way. If Mario is not himself, then who is he?
Although Jack Black is a superb Bowser, there are no notes.
