There was a series of Harry Potter esque books, but a bit edgier (IMO), the Charlie Bone series, which I quite liked, about kids who had magical abilities (but they were singular, as in one power per person), IIRC Charlie's was the ability to see the past through objects, and later on travel there. Also the Golden Armour series was also really good, but at the same time a bit weird because it seemed to have a hell of a lot of backstory that went unused.
After playing some Sniper V2 with sweet bullet-cam stuff, I have to second that there is a 'weird satisfaction'. Gibbin' dudes is just fun. The pane of glass point though is really something that should be in most games I think, it's a bit more tactical than straight up violence. I think it'll come in the next gen, last time it was ragdolls, next it'll be ragdolls that break.
I don't like how movie characters (usually the main ones and especially the protagonist) can just take punches like sponges. It's always refreshing when two people are fighting and they actually seem to be doing some damage. It's especially annoying if the hero has just KO'd a bunch of grunts with a handful of punches but of course he takes a fuck tonne with only minor cuts and bruises.
Did anyone get a different vibe from Daenerys this episode? The bit where she's speaking to the Yunkai emissary she's just got a hell of lot more confidence, I love how she switches between the two sides of her. Also, some of her expressions were identical to some of Cersei's expressions
