I'm not holding out hope for an awesome game. If it turns out to be good though, I would be very happy.

PLEASE be good.

Release a sequel to a critically panned game in a year? Sounds like a recipe for success to me.

Why? WHY??? Why is the playable character in the adaptation of an awesome movie always a fictional NOBODY made up for the game? I wanna play as NEO in The Matrix, as FRODO (err) in LOTR games, as STARK in Game of Thrones, not some fucking unknown soldier.

And this is actually one of those rare IPs where direct adaptation could totally make sense. I could totally see a Dragon Age-esque action game that bounces between several of the Starks and other characters (exactly how the books and TV show does).

Do we have to wait 5 years for a sequel?

It was a little over 6, and yeah, with the boatloads of cash Mr. Martin is making from the show and show related franchise spin offs, it'll be a good long while before a new book. As long as he doesn't pull another Robert Jordan I'm okay with it. George Martin deserves the money.

After killing Jon, I no longer care for this franchise. Martin, you monster!

What books are you reading?

:P

According to their website, it's being developed for "next-gen consoles". I'm intrigued, what are these things? Wii U?

Come on, people. Yeah yeah, the developer. But it's being published by Atlus, the company that brought us The Cursed Crusade. So of course it won't suck.

Hoping this is good.

Hopefully there is a mission with detailed emphasis on how you're eating the food.

No, this won't be a rushed product.

@Marcsman said: With Atlus I am very excited. But my dreams of the seven kingdoms united once again under Targaryen rule have been dashed. Hopefully one of the soldiers will be Ned Stark. If I cannot rule as a dragon , then the dire wolf is the next best thing. Why have they been dashed? /Spoiler start/ Daenerys is still alive and Aegon has already begun his conquest. /end of spoilers/ I know all that. But the article said you get to pick between two characters who were soldiers in Robert's rebellion. Certainly not a Targaryen. Plus you also missed one more Targaryen too.

If the game's story is being written by Martin, color me mildly more interested.

Here is to hoping it turns out well. Really like the show, never read the books though.

Would be cool if the developer wasn't cyanide. They also developed the game of thrones genesis game which was really, really bad. So they kind of dashed my hopes already.

Still hoping that CD projekt gets to develop something with game of thrones as source material. Bioware wouldn't be a bad choice either, even though their audiences faith in them has wavered a bit lately it would still be quite decent.

hahahaha!

Maybe Martin had to push back the release of "A Dance with Dragons" to complete the story for this (proably madiocre) hack-and-slasher.

@McFly:

That's because nobody's doing RPGs anymore,

it's just merely a sticker on the box. A game got

stats, ah, surely must be a role playing game.

Dude, c'mon. Look at the games I listed: Dark Souls, Skyrim, Reckoning - all with classless, completely modular skill systems that let you create and roleplay as any kind of character you could possibly want.

It's comments like yours that make me wonder what kind of roleplaying game are RPG-fans even looking for anymore.

I keep trying to have high hopes for ASOIAF games. All I want to do is explore Westoros... is that too much to ask?
