This has been bugging me since the first time I saw it.
"...rule the galaxy from an angular throne..."
From the context, I undersand it to mean, roughly, "pwn nubs with violence," but what is this term a reference to?
Any help would be appreciated.
stiff in manner; unbending.
Although to rule from a throne consisting of angles would be cool to I suppose...and 6 would be downright hillarious.
nice, without poking my head into a dictionnary, I more or less grasped the meaning of this sentence given the context
I'm the best (said that because in french you wouldn't use the equivalent of "angular" in such a context/meaning)
anyway thanks for the quote, dictionary.com is now bookmarked (yeah I know could have found it myself but ... ho well)
Hunh. I always thought of that particular definition as "dogmatic," not "warlike" or "militaristic."
I have to admit it's catchy, though.
I'm assuming, then, that it's not a reference, but a term coined in-house? Or is it a common phrase that I've missed out on?
Do a search for it, and you won't find anything useful.
So, I guess it was a term that was coined in-the-house of Stardock.
Personally, from the definitions, and since the whole point of the game is to conquer all the other races,
I would choose #7 - a stiff in manner; unbending... throne.
I just figured it meant that if you get to rule the whole galaxy you can have a chair with a lot of sharp edges.
There is a reference in a book called 'The Wizard of Karres', here is a link;
Also mentioned in this review of Medieval II: Total War;
So I guess it's not just Stardock using that phrase.
I'm with CaptainYar. Big. Pointy. Throne.
Matter of perspective; i'd rather 'rule the galaxy from a rhombicosidodecahedronspheroidicombilicalculateral throne..." than from a sharp angle but that's just me, kindof geometrically freaking at the seems.
Rule the galaxy from a soft, fluffy recliner, anyone?
PS - I bet that GameSpot blogger took the phrase from you guys. GC2: ToA is on his reviewed games list. Gave it a 9! High-fives all around!
EDIT: nevermind. Review was posted in 2006. I withdraw those high-fives.
Same here; I always thought it was just referring to the typical jaggedy evil overlord chair. I mean, what else would a galactic tyrant sit on? A beanbag chair? That would just be silly.
Unless it was a black beanbag chair. With spikes. Spikes filled with beans.
