Stuff’s Coming: Telltale’s Game Of Thrones Ep 5 Next Week

By Alice O'Connor on July 17th, 2015.

Such a tender gaze.

Knowing nowt about Game of Thrones, I have little idea what counts as a spoiler – though I know GoT fans can be outraged by the slightest hint. If I tell you that Episode 5 of Telltale’s Game of thrones [official site] is titled ‘A Nest of Vipers’, does that give anything away? Does GoT have a gang of hoodlums named The Vipers? Is it simply hinting at treachery? Is there a literal nest of venomous snakes? Who knows! Not me. However, I feel confidently unspoilery telling you that the episode is due out next Tuesday, July 21st.

Unsurprisingly, the rest of this post does include spoilers, including a trailer showing a bit of what’s about to go down (I don’t see a single snake, myself).

Tywinning Streak: Charles Dance In The Witcher 3

By Alec Meer on April 22nd, 2015.

'the mecha-cock was this long'

Oh sure, Charles Dance is a Highly Respected Act-Or again thanks to his icily charismatic role as Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones, but I remember when he was making ends meet with roles in bottom-of-the-barrel drek such as 1996’s Space Truckers. He played a man with a cybernetic schlong, whose utterances included the deathless line “If I had an anus I’d probably soil myself.” It’s a far cry from “A lion doesn’t concern himself with the opinions of a sheep.”

Let’s see if his role as Emperor Emhyr var Emreis in The Witcher 3 [official site] continues his latter-day Tywinning streak, or if he’s being dragged back to the mecha-willy Z-list all over again.

Lordly: Telltale’s Game Of Thrones Episode 3 Out Today

By Alice O'Connor on March 24th, 2015.

Stop trying to make 'fetch' happen. It's not going to happen.

Some times you want an expert. You want someone who knows a game inside and out, back to front, uphill both ways in the snow. This person is also a menace. They’ll let story spoilers slip or, worse, show off with hints that aren’t as cryptic as they think. No, some times you want a fool, a know-nothing dolt who can’t ruin everything. That’s me with Game of Thrones.

So here’s me, certified clueless about the… Europa Universalis fanfic?, with word that The Sword in the Darkness, Episode 3 of Telltale’s Game of Thrones series [official site], will launch on PC today. I don’t know what’s happening in this trailer, but that won’t stop me from talking about it.

Wot I Think: Game Of Thrones Episode 2

By Alec Meer on February 3rd, 2015.

A well-timed stopgap before HBO’s latest series of deadly politics comes to our screens, the second episode of Telltale’s say-the-right-thing-or-die spin-off more or less continues the high standard set by the first instalment. If you haven’t played that or ever intend to, please be warned that we’re going into spoilers for episode 1 right from the off. So don’t lose your head if you read on.

Wot I Think: Telltale’s Game Of Thrones, Episode 1

By Alec Meer on December 2nd, 2014.

uh-oh

Warning: this article presumes familiarity with the entire televisual run of Game of Thrones, as indeed does the game itself. In other words: SPOILERS. Don’t read on if you’re not up to date with the show.

Game Of Thrones, Telltale’s latest episodic conversational dilemma game interweaves with the third and fourth seasons of the HBO show. It stars a ‘new’ House, the historically Stark-aligned Forresters, but features appearances from a number of Game of Thrones’ stars. It’s on you to keep the Forresters alive by, basically, not saying the wrong thing to the wrong person.

The first episode, Iron From Ice, is out today, and Varys’ little birds delivered a copy to me a short while ago.

Watch The First Telltale Game Of Thrones Trailer

By Philippa Warr on November 21st, 2014.

Iron from ice

Telltale have released the first trailer for their upcoming Game of Thrones game series. The narration is confirmation that the game will have actors from the TV adaptation as it’s narrated by Cersei Lannister Lena Headey. It’s accompanied by a blog entry specifically explaining that Heady will be joined by at least three other cast members – Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Natalie Dormer (Margaery) and Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Snow) – with more to be revealed as the story progresses.

Story Time: Telltale Confirms Game Of Thrones, Borderlands

By Nathan Grayson on December 9th, 2013.

Yes, “the” Borderlands. The relentlessly silly blast-fest from Gearbox, as opposed to, um, that other Borderlands. Telltale might not seem like the most natural fit for a spinoff of the action-heavy RPG (which is less conversational and more often gunversational), but it’s happening, per Spike’s abysmally awkward VGX “award” show over the weekend. Also fired from the dudebro-centric network’s Big Fucking Announcement Gun: a Telltale Game of Thrones series, which was first rumored last month. Scant details on both below.

Lord Of The Rumors: Telltale’s Game Of Thrones Game

By Nathan Grayson on November 22nd, 2013.

Despite the fact that I am, as you might have noticed, Peter Dinklage, I actually haven't even finished the first book. It is my great shame.

Well, this all seems sort of inevitable in hindsight, doesn’t it? Telltale has more or less perfected its episodic storytelling formula, and bounteous riches are beginning to flow. And from among those glittering prizes and sparkling gem clusters, the Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us dev has – if a report from IGN is to be believed – plucked a veritable holy grail. It now allegedly has some sort of Game of Thrones game in the oven, though exact details are still hazy. This does, however, link up pretty well with my Dan Connors interview from earlier this year, so I am cautiously optimistic about the (for now) rumor’s veracity.

All In All: Game Of Thrones Beyond The Wall DLC

By Adam Smith on November 8th, 2012.

When the game of the TV series of the book A Game of Thrones was released this summer, Alec vanished for a few days. When we next saw him, he had the look of a man who has seen terrible things, all haunted and hollow. Turns out it’s a very long game and full of nastiness, although mostly of the intentional scripted sort. He said this: “it’s a troubled roleplaying game but also a really interesting and strong one. Every misfire is met by a triumph of some sort, and the one thing it is not is a lazy, perfunctory cash-in.” Is the new DLC a cash-in though? I don’t know! Screens and details below.

Where The Wildlings Are: Crusader Kigns II GOT Mod

By Adam Smith on July 19th, 2012.

You’ll likely remember that in May we alerted you to the Game Of Thrones mod for Crusader Kings II. It’s first release was already incredibly impressive, packed with features and civil war. And now they’ve released a version 0.2. Goodness knows how good this will be if they ever reach 1.0.

You Win Or You Grind – Game of Thrones: 7 Kingdoms

By Alec Meer on July 3rd, 2012.

(p)imp

Game of Thrones games will continue until every last remaining dark corner of Westeros has been illuminated by the lord of cutscenes. It has been prophesied! Next to leap aboard George R. R. Martin and HBO’s blood’n’sex bandwagon is serial MMO-maker Bigpoint, who follow up their Battlestar Galactica free to play massively multiplayer with Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms.
