Opinion: Who Cares About Spoilers?

Yesterday was a tough day for my inner-geek. I love comic book movies and Game Of Thrones, and had plans to spend my long-awaited holiday leave to catch up on the adventures in Westeros and the new Captain America movie. Yesterday I had both of these “spoiled” for me, either by my co-workers, commenters or the internet at large. And you know what? I don’t care, and neither should you. Nobody should care about spoilers any more.

newVideoPlayer("halo3fanboyseatshit_gawker.flv", 475, 286);

AU: WARNING: The end of this video will be very much considered a spoiler for Halo 3. Whether it is or not? It’s complicated (like any good story) and I don’t want to say. And yes, I’ve finished the game (I review games for a newspaper). Trust me, though, this vid will only re-upset those of you who were upset by Brian’s first ‘unbagging’ video. I don’t hate Halo / MS fanboys as much as Brian seems to, so I’m being nice and trying to save you a nasty shock. -SB

The other day, I posted a video showing some cool Halo 3 swag Microsoft sent me as part of the press kit. Despite me putting the word “Incredible” in the headline, people thought my video reflected a lack of appreciation for the gear, and I was called many names for it, and even received a death threat. I had no idea that Halo 3 fans were even more passionate than Apple fans. I realise now my video may have been seen as disrespectful, so I want to apologise here, and give you a second video with more detail of the Halo 3 swag unbagging, although its pretty similar to last week’s, for those who weren’t offended in the first place. Halo 3 fans who I disappointed last week, this video is for you.
