Telltales’ Game of Thrones Series Episode 2 First Look



Telltale Games has just released the trailer for the second episode in the 2nd episode in their Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series.  Along with the trailer we have confirmation for the release date for all platforms.

The 2nd episode will continue directly after the events of the first.  If you haven’t played the first episode, Iron From Ice, I implore you to.  Iron From Ice does a fantastic job at introducing three of the five playable characters. And doing what I originally thought would be impossible to do in a video game, bringing the atmosphere from both the books and the show to life in a game.  From the looks of it the second episode will introduce us to the fourth playable character in the game, Asher Forrester, the exiled son who will be our eyes into Essos.  In episode one we saw some familiar faces from the show such as Tyrion, Cersei, Margaery, and Ramsay Snow.  Episode 2 will continue this trend by introducing fan favorite characters such as Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.

George R.R. Martin LiveStream Event

CS 67 26th October 2010Hopefully you were able to watch George R.R. Martin’s livestream event yesterday – but if you weren’t able to make it, don’t worry we have the recording for you.  The whole event lasted about 90 minutes, and if you’r a fan of George and the Song of Ice and Fire series you’ll love it.  Also the last little bit of the event was a Q&A – Oddly enough I thought the questions George passed on were more informational than the actual questions he gave an answer for. g.

Below are just a few pieces of information I found interesting from the event.

  • In the book The World of Ice and Fire, the narrative comes from two maesters.  The first is maester Yandel, who represents the parts of the book written by Elio Garcia and Linda Antonsson.  The second is archmaester Gyldayn, who is the voice for George R.R. Martin.
  • George R.R. Martin wrote 300,00 words (in addition to the 70,000 words written by Elio and Linda) for The World of Ice and Fire.  Only a part of the 300,00 words made in into the actual book – the rest will be published in Fire and Blood, which has also been joked around as the GRRMarillion.
  • I previously wrote an article on this next piece.  George announced (although it didn’t feel like an official announcement) that A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms would be released later this fall.  For more information on the book check out this post.
  • George also mentioned the inspirations for a few pieces of the Song of Ice and Fire universe.  Such as the Roman Republic being his inspiration for the Valyrian stronghold.  And Tiberius Caesar (more specifically, George Baker’s representation of Tiberius in I, Claudius) being his inspiration for Stannis Baratheon.   Also George’s trip to Hadrian’s Wall gave him the idea for The Wall.

These are just a few pieces of information gained from the livestream event.  So if this sounds interesting check out the full livestreaem event below!
