Good review. I think I'll wait for the whole thing to be out and see what people think of it as a whole before getting this one. Still, out of all the settings I can think of that would make a good Tales game, Westeros is definitely up there.

Side note: Have you guys reviewed Tales From the Borderlands yet? I haven't seen a review and and a quick search has come up with nothing. That one sounds like it's actually better than this one so I'm curious to see what you guys think.

I don't suppose you know how well this runs on an iPad?
I'd prefer to get it for iPad, but The Wolf Among Us ran terribly on mine (iPad 2)
So if its just as choppy, I'd prefer to get it for PC.

Greg Tito:
the fortunes of the Forresters are only going to get worse when the stern Boltons take power in the North.

Y'know, there are a number of adjectives I'd use to describe the major players who ride under the banner of the flayed man, but I don't think "stern" would rank in the top 10...

I'm glad to hear that the game sounds worth playing, but I'm increasingly feeling that, with most TT games, it's worth letting them run a few episodes in before purchasing as long as one can avoid spoilers.

I enjoyed the game because I'm such a Telltale fan, but I'll be first to admit that I know very little about the Game of Thrones lore.

If you're a fan of the books or the television show, what did you think of this game?

Oh Greg, you should know by now what kind of series this is...

Just finished the first episode and, I have to say, it's a good start. I was a little worried by the graphics, that, even with the stylized look, it would fall short, but I felt immersed almost immediately. The game is slightly laggy though, but no more than other Telltale games.

Looking forward to another five episodes!

The dialogue isn't as Game of Thronesy as I'd like, and they say "fuck" too much for my liking, but I think the art style matches surprisingly well... apart from when it has a character from the show on screen. The worst part though is the loading screens and the frame rate. Seriously do TellTale only have like 10 employees or something? Why is every game they make so badly optimized on consoles?

Dat ending though. I'm hooked too.

It's set between the third and the fourth series, not fourth and fifth, by the way.
