Telltale’s Game Of Thrones Second Season Confirmed

Coo, how about that Game of Thrones [official site] finale? And that thing with… The Ice Dragon? Was there actually an ice dragon or was episode 6’s title metaphorical? Look, I haven’t played it. Any spoilers in this post are the result of stupid stumbling luck. Besides, that finale’s still only part-way through Telltale’s grimdark fantasy choice ‘em up. The developers had mentioned before that their deal was for several games, but it’s nice to have confirmation: yes, they are still planning to make another season.

Game Of Thrones Trailer Heralds Today’s Conclusion

Telltale are releasing the sixth and final chapter of their Game of Thrones [official site] episodic adventure later today.

Ahead of the release of ‘The Ice Dragon’ in a few hours, Telltale have released a trailer recapping a few of the choices players have faced, and teasing what’s to come. Spoilers follow, obviously?

Telltale’s Game Of Thrones Finale Deets & Pics

All men must die, so I’m told, and I can’t imagine the finale of Telltale’s episodic Game of Thrones [official site] will be without a few tears, not to mention murders and mutilations. Unusually, Telltale announced its release date – November 17th – a month in advance, a break from their usual habit of muttering episode dates a few days before they’re out. They didn’t have much of anything to say about the ep, mind, so today they’ve followed up with a few words and pictures from ‘The Ice Dragon’.

Crusader Kings 2’s Game Of Thrones Mod Hits 1.0

Crusader Kings 2 [official site] is a grand strategy game about human beings instead of armies, and it spins gripping Shakespearean yarns about medieval social climbing, full of murder, betrayal and bastards. It’s brilliant, but you might be a little intimidated by its setting. That’s just one of the reasons why the Game of Thrones mod is so good – and it’s just hit version 1.0.

Comfy? Telltale’s Game Of Thrones Ends In November

Speaking of conclusions to episodic adventure games made by Telltale, the devs have announced that their television murderfest spin-off Game of Thrones [official site] will wrap up on November 17th with its sixth episode, titled ‘The Ice Dragon’. That makes this post a bit like going back to past and changing that other post so in the future we have a post about Game of Thrones rather than Tales from the Borderlands but oh no what is this I’m dissolving gosh meddling with time is a rum do and no mistake!

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

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

'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

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

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.
