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.

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 of people said was rubbish, but, aha! It was not, I tell you, it was not.

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.

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.
