a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.
BioWare developer Alistair McNally teased on Twitter today (07/21/2014) that this years Gamesom is going to be packed full with new and special info on Dragon Age Inquisition. BioWare has not yet been listed on the Gamescom website as an exhibitor, so there is no information at this time on what the schedule might look for DA:I fans that weekend.
Keep your eyes peeled BioWare fanboys/girls! This week at San Diego Comic-Con and the weekend of August 17th are shaping up to be real nail-bitters.
The characteristic Roman Legionary iron sword and bronze scabbard of the 1st Century AD and associated fittings. This sword and scabbard were found together, in the River Thames at Fulham, London. The tinned bronze buckle and belt plate, the short sword and the various find spots around London and the south coast of England. Together they provide a complete picture of a Roman Legionary soldier’s hand weapons and basic gear, other than his clothing, in the 1st Century AD. A very small section of chain mail armor, part of a chain mail short that would have been worn over the soldier’s tunic, is shown on the torso. Note the elaborate acanthus leaf and vine scroll decoration on the central part of the scabbard and the image of the She Wolf suckling Romulus and Remus at the top of the scabbard. All in all, a notable display of Roman ideological and military power. In the Roman galleries of The British Museum, London.
