* DidNotDoTheResearch: His \\\"Combat Evolved\\\" discussion on Halo asserted that the game has [[UnfortunateImplications racist subtext]] because the single-species humans are fighting the diverse [[ScaryDogmaticAliens Covenant]]. The Covenant are a caste-based empire who attempted genocide twice in the games, while the humans formed an alliance with one of their cast-off castes and later established peace between the species.

OK, [[http://www.escapistmagazine.com/videos/view/the-big-picture/2428-Combat-Evolved the video is here]], so you can watch it if you need to. Please note that Moviebob was \\\'\\\'specifically\\\'\\\' discussing the visual design motifs here; he acknowledges the story elements refuting this, but argues that they\\\'re overpowered by the visual iconography. You can question the analysis if you wish, but it\\\'s most definitely NOT DidNotDoTheResearch. Any disagreements before I cull that point?

Edit: Quote from the video. \\\"Yeah yeah, I know. All these different species come from different worlds because they were conquered and converted by the Covenant, so it\\\'s mainly diverse because it\\\'s a slave army... But come on, how many actually play Halo for the context? Think about how this looks in the macro.\\\"

That\\\'s it. I\\\'m just going to delete it now. If anyone can come up with a solid argument for why it should be back, they can revert it.

I doubt there is a source on that; Core Medals are only differentiated by their location on the holder\'s body. And a matter this trivial is nothing worth arguing to begin with. All Medals are shown to have their own uses already, so just drop the argument for the sake of a simpler, cleaner page. Please.
