Preface: Telltale’s Game of Thrones starts set approximately towards the end of Season 3 of Game of Thrones and finishes towards the end of Season 4. In order to talk about the game this review will possibly contain spoilers for both seasons and thus also contain spoilers for A Storm of Swords and A Feast for Crows.
You know what, instead of doing the exact same intro I did when reviewing Tales from the Borderlands, let me change the format a little here in order to instantly complain about something. Why the FUCK is it just called Telltale’s Game of Thrones? Now I have to fucking say the developer’s name every time I say the game JUST to distinguish it from the TV show (and that’s not even taking into account that most people these days associate “Game of Thrones” with the TV show rather than the actual fucking books). It’s even going to be divided up into the usual Telltale “seasons” so when I say, “I just finished Season 1 of Game of Thrones” people will look at me like I’ve just emerged from a cave after having spent the last 10 years living with the mole people.
I mean… Seriously… How hard is it to come up with a new title? “Iron from Ice: A Game of Thrones Game“. There. That wasn’t so fucking hard now, was it (aside from the colon in the middle, so one would have to replace that with a dry-heave)?
