Re: Game of Thrones: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games

They should do it from every characters perspective, in their own game. That way we have a 750 episode season 1! Yay!

Re: Game of Thrones: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games

They seem to be biting off a lot lately, which worries me since they haven't been able to get out the second episode of Wolf Among Us yet.

Rumor is that episode 1 will be here before the year is out.

I'm playing the Walking Dead so this should be fun.

Re: Game of Thrones: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games

Details about the characters and house that you're playing as came out a few days ago too - http://www.telltalegames.com/blog/86...e-games-series

Quote:
You will play the game from five different points of view. Each character you play as is a member of House Forrester; either a direct family member, or a person in service to the House. Scattered across Westeros and Essos, each character will play their part in seeking to save House Forrester from destruction.

Playing as five characters not only reflects the epic scope of Game of Thrones, but is also something that the player needs to be mindful of. This is because the actions of one character can ripple out to affect the rest of House Forrester. Multiply the actions of one character by five, and you're truly playing the Game of Thrones…where you win, or you die.

Additional details on the series and its upcoming premiere episode, 'Iron From Ice' are forthcoming. Stay tuned here to the Telltale Games Blog, twitter, and Facebook pages for more information as we approach the premiere, the first of six episodes, which will be arriving for download soon on PC/Mac, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, and iOS, with additional platforms to be announced.
I'm tentative on this. Loved Walking Dead S1 and Wolf Among Us, Walking Dead S2 was ok.

Nice, like that the show's cast are voicing their characters instead of going the cheap route and hiring no names.

Okay, I'm sold. The moment I heard Cerci's voice -- and I realized that Headley was actually acting and not just phoning in the lines- I knew I had to buy it.

Alright I screwed up on my post. Twice. Next time I'll be checking IMDB before posting here.

Re: Game of Thrones: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games

I think i'll wait for reviews on this to see how it compares to the other Telltale Games. Cool that its coming so soon though.

Re: Game of Thrones: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games

Telltale's games and season passes go on sale so quickly that it's really a waste of money to buy them right away. Unless you just can't wait to get your hands on episode 1 and then wait months for the next installment.

Re: Game of Thrones: An Episodic Game Series from Telltale Games

Reviews are looking good. My only concern with this game is spoilers. I still haven't watched season 4 of the show, and I am unsure when this game is set.
