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.

Btw, the FO:NV ultimate edition is currently on sale for 5 bucks. That may genuinely be the most incredible value ever seen. Their four DLCs are pretty decent, and the main game is great. That's an easy 80-100 hours of RPG goodness for 5 bucks.

Creston

Not just FO:NV but the entire FO franchise is 75% off. I picked up FO GOTY for 5$.

Another title I greatly enjoy for sheer destruction is Universe Sandbox. There's some kind of relaxation at watching Andromeda smash in to the Milky Way or when you change the gravitation constant.

Deadlight looks like a lot of fun too!

News Comments > World of Warcraft Movie Status
30. Re: World of Warcraft Movie Status Jul 3, 2013, 19:11 Wallshadows
 
The problem I have is that it appears they are dead-set on continuity between what will be happening further in to the game to tie in to the movie. The reason why they dumped Raimi was because they veto'd his script after it was penned because it was not involved with the main story so, for me, they want to keep it all together.

In all honesty, I will not be surprised if Blizzard uses the movie as they do with the books and use it as a method to fill in the blanks of the story rather than to incorporate them in to the game which has been a big issues (for me) since the end of WotLK to cash in on. We're likely on the brink of being told to watch the movie and read the book in order to understand the hamfisted plot within the game.

Unfortunately, they're doing a fantastic job at killing off pivotal characters. So much so that it'll eventually become as shallow as their current story is now, filled with characters and events you don't really give a shit about that it may as well should be its own movie of a different era and that means they trashed Raimi for nothing and missed their window of opportunity.

Either way, this will still rake in 800 million dollars on the name alone. It could be two hours of watching Metzen take a shit and people would still pay to see it.

I'd like to see an Alice movie based on his vision of the franchise but we'd probably end up with Bad Day LA McGee in terms of quality.
