I've lost interest in these games since they mistakenly thought that going open-world was an improvement to the formula, but I can say with certainty that this game is fucking gorgeous. Every video I see looks stunning and for some reason I never hear anybody so much as mention it.

Government art funding is nonsense. If you like it, donate your money to a grant.

You can't take people's money for this. Document your game-making process and put it on YouTube or stream it from Twitch instead.

For some reason I assumed they would Highland-ing each other using their video game prowess, so I voted for Jeff.

It still seems like a novelty to me. And an expensive one at that.

It's always good when games are made available on more platforms. If they were just calling these games ports nobody would bat an eye.

I don't particularly want to, but I probably will just out of curiosity. Thankfully, I don't have to worry about that for 5-6 years.

@turambar: I actually like your idea better. I was hoping some of the Night's Watch would attack Jon, and Alliser would try to protect him. He doesn't like Jon, but he has always been dedicated to the honor of the Night's Watch. This seemed out of character for him. Also, Edd was in a perfect position as a barely-there character to really surprise people and suddenly become an important player were he to betray Jon.

I would not say that at all. Thorne has never been portrayed at caring about the honor of the Watch, or at least honor beyond the most superficial degree. His friendship with Slynt was certainly not because Slynt was going to bring the Watch honor. Edd on the other hand is a character that most people wouldn't even remember the name of, but he's been shown having Jon's back so many times now that there is inherent trust in him as being one of the good guys.

Specifically, I think he takes his commitment to the Night's Watch very seriously. This is part of the reason he stood aside when Jon called for the men to bring Slynt out into the yard to be executed. It could certainly have been a matter of self-preservation on his part, but the way he looked at Slynt in that scene indicated to me that he thought he deserved it for refusing the orders of his superior, betraying his oath. I think he's rationalizing the mutiny as an act that is necessary to preserve the Night's Watch, which Jon was destroying (in Thorne's eyes) by siding with the Wildlings. He never seemed like the sort of guy who would make a drastic play for power. I just thought he was a standard asshole.
