To be fair it is a huge game filled with content. You can easily sink hundreds of hours into it. Just a shame that much of the older zones see no traffic, some have very fun group quests and other stuff to do.

They've 'fixed' the issue of empty zones by way of cross-realm grouping but it has introduced more issues than solutions in the form of randomly falling to your death because crossing in to a cross-realm zone can often dismount and kill you if you're in a two-seater. The worst part about it is if you take a flight path over a cross-realm zone which has a rare spawn, it'll still consider you to be on your home realm but when you fly back it'll take you off your home realm and throw you in with the rest on another. I got a hit on Time Lost Protodrake while on a flight path to Ulduar, flew back, nothing.

Also, group quests are...actually, I can honestly count how many true group quests there are in the game now after Cataclysm and most are optional such as the Arena events. The only rest are in Outland but most are already in Northrend before hitting Nagrand now.

Someone remind me why that guy decided to jump ship from Microsoft to Zynga? I assume it involved a large sack of cash but still, damn.

Kind of a bland game if you don't use mods such as Synergy and the community class pack. Otherwise, was worth the price of admission!

Addressed an issue where BNK-3R could get stuck and not be defeated.

Wow, only fixing this now? Happened to me the first time I played and then again on TVHM months and months ago. Got stuck in the part of the platform that extends over the walk way.

Look! Another studio we'll likely never hear from again until they cancel their product and form another studio.

People scratch their head and wonder when and how an egg could have been put on the Sulaco to cause the death of Hicks and Newt but have no issues accepting the fact that an Alien got on board the dropship which was suppose to rescue the bunch after shit hit the fan much earlier in the film.

It's not out of the realm of possibility that that same Xeno brought an egg on board especially when the Queen would not have been able to lay an egg as she detached from the egg-laying apparatus in order to chase Ripley. Granted, the only time the Xeno would have had time to get on board in the first place was when they did the initial touchdown before the camera pans around to show the Marines running away from the dropship as it pulls away with the bay open.

It sucks that there is no official explanation as to how it happened and why it required both of the major characters to be killed off in order to progress the story when it could have gone any other way to achieve the same results. Leaving it in the hands of the fans to come up with a plausible explanation is fun and all but it should have been reserved for a much lesser issue.

Alien 3 would have been a pretty bangin' ass movie if a fan came along and edited out the whole introduction and replaced Ripley and Bishop face with Jamie Lee Curtis and that creepy automated taxi guy from Total Recall '90.

They don't pay their share and all they do is take.

You don't have to be a member of royalty for this to happen though. You're sounding like my Grandfather who simply wants to hate on them for no other reason but to hate.

Granted, I don't care about this whole situation myself.

I think technically the Queen is still in charge of passing laws but I think if she actually tried to go against parliament's wishes, she would have to abdicate and possibly end the monarchy. She's just there to wave.

It used to be an absolute monarch system which gave the King/Queen absolute control but now she's essentially the theoretical counterbalance to the Prime Minister and has little, if any, power over the House of Commons since they can overrule her through parliament. While she can still *technically* do things like close parliament, vetoing laws, and appointing a PM, it'll likely never happen.

An example of how much power she wields was when she did not allow England to go to war in Iraq but they did it anyway and she never called for the head of Tony Blair.

So you're happy for parasites who think they're better than you and expect you bow and scrape to them for no real reason at all? Well, bully for you. This world is full of masochists, one more certainly won't make a difference. Personally I find the very concept of an aristocracy to be deeply offensive.

I think it's important to note that the form of Aristocracy which you seem to be angry with is more suitable to that which existed in, say, the Feudal ages when social class structures were extremely rigid and restricted those who were eligible to hold such a position of power. On one hand, you could be an extremely intelligent serf but you'll always be under a lord while on the other hand, you could be the biggest fuckwit lord but you'll always be above a serf if you're born in to it.

The Aristocracy of today in developed nations is mostly used as a title or a formality rather than to ensure only those with a certain social standing or heredity can form a ruling class.

If anything, the 'best' to fill in such rolls has evolved in to Plutocracy which I find much more appalling.

So far, this steam summer sail has been a terrific flop in my eyes. I've bought more indy games than big-studio games but can still count them all on one hand.
