Game of Thrones - Launch Trailer


Game of Thrones is available now for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.

Quote:
Written in conjunction with author George R. R. Martin, the famed A Song of Ice and Fire universe opens further to reveal a new chapter of the story! Play as two former soldiers of Robert's Rebellion who, despite divergent paths, must reunite to face a new and deadly threat to the Seven Kingdoms. Travel a parallel course with the original series, interacting with familiar faces, including Cersei Lannister, Qhorin Halfhand, Jeor Mormont, Varys, and Chataya.

Likewise. I figure that the 2012 Steam Winter Sale will have it for $20 and I'll pick it up then.

Since I don't have a computer that'll run Diablo III, I'm going to be VERY tempted to pick this up...

I am waiting for UPS to deliver Diablo 3 CE, Game of Thrones CE, and Max Payne 3 today. This is like THE gaming day of the year. How can this fall top that combo?

That's what the Steam wishlist is for, keeping tabs on sales.

Yep that trailer screamed "Hey look at all these swords they're sharp, shiney and coming at you from all different directions. Please don't notice how sucky the graphics of the actual game are and that we've shown absolutely no game play features in our trailer."

And yet, I was suckered in to pre-ordering the deluxe art book edition on brand recognition. I hope its not as bad as I fear.

Would not trust the reviews or knock it until you try it. It is from a very established developer, whose last RPG was Loki on the PC in 2007. Also, I have yet to play a bad game developed in France.

Been playing about 30 minutes now. I really like it!! It's a little rough around the edges, but nowhere near the abomination that was cursed crusade.

The voice acting is actually pretty decent, and Varys sounds like Varys from the show.

Combat is quasi-turn based where you slow down time to issue commands to a queue. Very old school, but works nicely. You can move in real time any time in combat.

Graphics are serviceable, environments are downright nice! Music is great and a lot of it is from the HBO show.

No, it's not a AAA title, but I like it far better than say the demo for Dragon's Dogma. Give this a chance guys! That IGN review is just flat out by someone who's never seen a more old school RPG or is not a fan of the series.

More like 7.5/10, not 4/10.

Very easily, sure they that day to have 1 major title (Diablo) 1 semi major (Max Payne) and one question mark in GoT. But this fall they it in weeks.

Now, we have Borderlands coming out in Sept. THANK GOD!, but come the end of October from just looking really quick.

We have in back to back to back weeks

10/23 Medal of Honor
10/30 Assassins Creed 3
11/06 Halo 4
11/13 Call of Duty
11/20 Hitman

That is 5 quality titles, in back to back weeks, which also doesn't include the likes of Borderlands (stated above), Resident Evil 6, Far cry 3, Dishonored...

I would have to say if anything, this year has been the most kind to the gaming community with all these amazing titles coming out, but a real freaking bitch to our wallets. I have no idea how I am going to be able to afford all of these games.
