Game Of Thrones RPG Out In June, Kissed Its Sister

Having just watched the latest episode of Game Of Thrones, I'm fairly convinced that any role-playing game based on the books will just be a simulator for having sex with your brother/sister. But the latest trailer for Game Of Thrones: The Game (is that really what they're sticking with?) appears to show that there's also some chopping people up, too. It's released to accompany the…

There’s Blood In My: Dungeonbowl

Fresh from their reworking of fantasy tabletopper Confrontation, Cyanide have announced they are working on Dungeonbowl - a fantasy sports game - which is the version of Blood Bowl set inside a shoe dungeon. The screenshot above looks remarkably like a place I visited in Second Life, but we have assurances that the game is based firmly on the Games Workshop original. Quoth Cyanide: "Dungeonbowl…

Confrontation Launches, Welcomes Ragnarök Rag’narok

Cyanide are getting another crack at converting boardgames to the PC (having already done so with Blood Bowl) with their version of miniature tabletop game, Confrontation. It's out today. I've had a brief look at this earlier in the week, but haven't played enough for a critical verdict. I can certainly report that some fantasy dudes get killed right up, in a real-time strategy fashion,…

A Game Of Thrones RPG Trailer Is Bloody Murder

Gosh, things are getting fraught in A Game Of Thrones RPG trailer-land. Dudes are getting stabbed and bashed with big metal clubs. Men and women alike are making accusations and sounding cross. There's even something about cockroaches, so it sounds like they need to get the fumigators in to that castle. Yeah, I have no idea what's going on, frankly, but it sounds exciting. Join…

Stark Footage Of The Game Of Thrones RPG

I'm starting to feel like an embedded reporter in Westeros. There are too many games of Games of Thrones. Cyanide's take is an RRPG (sic) in the same vein as Dragon Age II. The combat system's tweak to that format means that instead of pausing battles to pick the best strategic outcome, things instead just run very slowly. I believe it's their criticism of how…

A Glimpse Of A Game Of Thrones RPG

Atlus and Cyanide have released a bit of footage of the A Game Of Thrones RPG. It talks about someone wanting to marry her brother, so that's nice. This is apparently a preview of one of the playable areas in the game, Castlewood. Atlus explain: "Situated on the banks of the Blackwater in the Riverlands, Castlewood is the prosperous seat of the House of Harlton,…

Winter’s Already Here, Silly: Game Of Thrones

Aha! The first proper footage of the RPG based on the fantasy tomes by George 'lecherous old tease' R. 'making it up as he goes along' R. 'all that money and he still won't buy a beard-trimmer' Martin. After the well-intentioned but ultimately miserable strategy game Genesis, this RPG looks to be rather more lavish - and, perhaps vitally in a commercial sense, related to…

Look, It’s Time To Confront Confrontation

You might recollect from a few months back that Cyanide announced they were making a videogame version of the tabletop combat system Confrontation. There's apparently been a bit of progress in that area, because Cyanide have released a teaser trailer (via Blue), which you can see below. It seems to feature a lot of heavily out of breath characters. Regarding the game itself Cyanide explain:…

A Playing Of Roles: Game Of Thrones

This is the RPG Of Thrones, not the duff strategy one. News comes via Sean Bean, who just lobbed a brick through my window with this note attached. "'Ow do. Who would have thunk that an ordinary lad from Yorkshire would become the King of the Rings and the Warrior Lord of Westeros? Not me mam. She said I were too mardy for t'be loved…

Another Game Of Game Of Thrones: Screens

How's your Game Of Thrones game coming along? Everyone's making one at the moment. Mine's doing nicely - it's a sort of driving game/match-3 hybrid, set north of the Wall. It should be ready some time in 2013. Game Of Thrones: Genesis is already out (and a bit poop), and then there's the somewhat trademark infringing Khan Wars: Game Of Thrones, which just happens to…

Feature: A Game of Groans

Impressions: Game of Thrones: Genesis

There has been interest in Genesis, this game of A Game of Thrones, mostly because people like the source material, whether in book or telemotion format, but after a few hours of play I can confidently say that this is not the experience to do the license justice. An initially refreshing sense that I might be playing something boardgamey and diplomatically enthralling was soon replaced…

A Clot Of Colons: Game of Thrones: Genesis

From what I can gather, people waited decades for the most recent book in the Song of Ice and Fire series. In comparison, Cyanide Studios’ RTS take on Mr R R Martin’s world, A Game of Thrones: Genesis, has burst into existence with stunning alacrity. Screenshots have emerged, showing glowering men in armour and maps with recognisable landmarks on them, such as The Wall, which…

Cyanide’s A Game Of Thrones RPG Hints

Developer Cyanide and fantasy author George RR Martin seem concerned that people are confusing the Game Of Thrones RTS that their Montreal studio is making (and which is out soon) with the RPG being made by their French studio, which is out sometime in the far future. In fact, as Blues spotted, Martin has blogged about the difference, saying of his experiences seeing the first…

A Date For A Game Of A Game Of Thrones

Cyanide's A Game Of Thrones: Genesis finally has a release date. The RTS set in George R. R. R. R. R. Martin's grumpy world will be with us this very month, on the 29th. Being a strategy game, clearly I'd have to receive an odd number of bumps to the head to play it, but were I to I would insist on only ever making…

Cyanide Computerising Confrontation

Speaking of miniatures and dice, Cyanide - they of Bloodbowl and more lately the Game Of Thrones game - have announced that they are converting fantasy combat tabletop title Confrontation to the PC. Rackham, the company who made the game, went bust a while back I think, but the miniatures line has been picked up by Legacy Miniatures and it looks like Cyanide are pitching…

A Game Of Thrones: Genesis Will Fight Dirty

Cyanide Studios, the French developers behind Blood Bowl and Pro Cycling Manager (I imagine them sat at their desks, stained with blood and sweat in equal measure) have just fired a salvo of intriguing new details on A Game of Thrones: Genesis, their real-time strategy game set in the world of George R. R. Martin's wily, waspish fantasy novels. Looks like an ordinary RTS, right?…

The RPS Blood Bowl Cup Could Be Yours!

Did you know that Rock, Paper, Shotgun has an active Blood Bowl community? It does! Our forumites, they can't get enough of that turn-based sport, or the match reports, the injuries, everything hanging on a single simulated dice roll, all that good stuff. If you own Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition and want to get involved with our most friendly of gaming communities, now's the time.…

A Game of Thrones: Genesis Screenshots

Whoa. Cyanide Studios, them of Blood Bowl fame, are releasing a fantasy strategy game based around George R.R. Martin's unspeakably excellent A Song of Ice & Fire novels this summer. I did not know this. Apparently Big Download did, and remained as cool as a cucumber posting these first two screenshots. I hope that one day RPS will be as cool as Big Download. Until…

Score! Blood Bowl Legendary Edition Out

More stadiums! More star-players! A new Story mode! More than double the number of playable races, including Ogres, Nurgle, Necromantic and High Elves! Blood Bowl: Legendary Edition has been released, and it's all a bit much for a Friday morning. I haven't even had my tea yet. If you already own Blood Bowl, Cyanide is offering a 33% discount on the Legendary Edition if you…

Legendary 30% Off For Previously Bowlers

After the eyebrow-raising price the original game came out at, I was expecting to be asked to pay full whack for the Blood Bowl Legendary Edition. Mr Dixon tells me that Cyanide have announced that anyone who owns a previous edition of Blood Bowl will get 30% off the new version. You just enter your code into the shop, which will be up in October.…
