Joffrey Meets The Reaper:
CK II Game Of Thrones Mod Update

It's always a happy day when an update for a much-loved mod appears. The Game of Thrones total conversion for Crusader Kings II [official site] is such a blindingly obvious combination of worlds and mechanics that it simply had to exist. That the team working on it continue to do such a good job is fantastic. The latest update brings in support for the latest…

Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi has joined up with The Coalition to create the score for Gears of War 4 [official site].

Have You Played… Game Of Thrones: The RPG?

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. No, not that Game Of Thrones game. The other one. The one no-one talked about. The RPG one. The one that was, confusing, based mostly on the books but had some TV people making plastic-faced cameos in it. The one a whole mess…

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…

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. They're presumably also planning to hunt you down, kick in your door, flay your PC, and impale its severed screen on a lamp post outside your home then make a necklace out your shattered mouse. Ahead of the release of 'The Ice Dragon' in a few…

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…

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…

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…

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

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…

The RPG Scrollbars: The Worst Parts Of RPGs, Vol I

As wonderful as RPGs are, some tropes and cliches and just general bloody annoyances really do spoil the fun. Some of them might only crop up occasionally, others just won't go away. Some, you might think, are just petty irritations. But no! All these incontrovertible sins must be destroyed at once! Here's a few of my least favourite offenders. What others would you add to…

Tywinning Streak: Charles Dance In The Witcher 3

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."…

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

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…

Feature: Damn, it feels bad to be a Forrester

Game Of Thrones Episode 2 review

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…

Telltale’s Game Of Thrones, Episode 1 review

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,…

Story Time: Telltale Confirms Game Of Thrones, Borderlands

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…

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

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…
