along with the strategy game, Cyanide is also working on an RPG.

Quote
Gameplay is described as a mix of The Witcher and other pseudo-turn-based RPGs, with players choosing skills and directing traffic in the midst of real-time battle.

the article also mentions you'll play at least two characters, and the story is set around the books instead of following them.

I want to play as Hodor and get by body taken over by a whiny brat.  Either that or that naked hooker chick from the HBO series.

Maybe they can include God of War style mature-themed mini-games?

Who the fuck is Cyanide?  They made a game called Horse Racing Manager woot!  Ok they also did BloodBowl which is a nice game (with a terrible UI) but can they make a good RPG or RTS?  The trailer for the RTS just looks awful.

The only rationale explanation (I can think of) is that they got the license before Game of Thrones made it mainstream via HBO.  Otherwise, someone like EA would've snatched it up.

They kept Martin in the loop and he liked what he saw.  Also:

(Just to be clear. This is the RTS game, designed and developed by Cyanide's studio in Montreal. A second videogame, an RPG, is also under development at Cyanide's studio in France, but that one won't be along for a while yet. The two games are very different, so please don't get them confused).

I'm pretty tempted to leap at the RTS title. I'm a fan of Bloodbowl and the little information I have seen about the RTS make it look like Knights of Honor (a good thing IMHO).

Well BloodBowl is good because the turn based board game is good.  I don't think anyone thinks the realtime mode of BB is good.  So I am very skeptical but I guess I'll wait and see.

I'm just hoping Cyanide comes up with a better effort for the RPG, because the RTS effort was none too good. I'm not that big a fan of AGoTs, so I might pass on this anyways.

Quote
Along the 30 hours of gameplay offered by "Game of Thrones", play as Mors, sworn brother of the Night's Watch, and Alester, a Red Priest in search of redemption who is back to Westeros after a long exile. The Hand of King Robert Baratheon has just passed away, and these two charismatic heroes will find themselves dragged in a grand quest that will lead them through familiar and gorgeous places of Westeros, such like the Wall and its region, or the famous King’s Landing. In this grand adventure, they will meet famous faces: Queen Cersei, Varys the Spider or Jeor Mormont, the Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch faithfully reproduced from the TV series.

In "Game of Thrones", you will choose the class of your characters, find your fighting style, reach a good balance between your strengths and weaknesses, and get ready for epic battles! Find, buy or loot new equipment and weapons to fit your approach of the fights, and gain experience to improve your skills or learn new ones. Slow the time down during battle to analyze the situation and choose your next moves. In Game of Thrones, political skills can be as lethal as a sharpen sword, so never underestimate the power of a silver tongue to solve a critical situation!

Don't go confusing engines with art design now! Both games portray a bleak quasi-realistic fantasy world. I believe the graphics look better in the screenshots above than they will in actual play. The camera angles look very deliberate, particularly because I can't imagine they'll be facing up much of the time, if at all.

I like the ability to interrupt combat. Although it looks to be differing from other games with similar systems, in that it only allows the action to be slowed down and not completely paused. I think that's a better idea and should make for a better challenge. I've been cautiously optimistic about this game, but it's looking more promising all the time.

King's Landing is up on the main site.

May 15th.  I wonder if they're going to flinch and change dates at the last moment or if this will be like 2000 when Deus Ex and Diablo 2 came out practically on top of each other, and for me Deus Ex won out.

This almost feels like a stealth release.  It seems like they've decided not even to market the game.  I haven't seen any industry buzz, which is normally a bad sign.  The game comes out in 14 days and if it weren't for Ceekay digging up the ocassional update, I wouldn't even know about it.

Agreed.  I hope its not some shitty game they are going to throw on wal mart shelves in the hopes that ignorant gamers will grab it and buy it for the title.

If it was not for ceekay, I would never have heard of it either.

I'm tempted to pre-order from Amazon, where you can get the Steam code plus a $10 credit towards anything from Amazon.

Funny you should say Wal-Mart, since I saw it there today for the Xbox. lol

I tried to buy it, but the register wouldn't allow the sale.  frown

for some reason Gamersgate has this up for $35.99, and if you have the IGN 15% off discount it's only $30.59. 

of course there is a catch- the Gamersgate version uses ActControl, which seems to be some variant of Starfarce.  I don't think the Steam version used it because Amazon has 2 different versions listed for sale:  ActControl or Steam.  I only mention it because I know some people want nothing to do with that kind of stuff.

played about a half hour so far and it definitely feels a bit rough.  random thoughts:

  • lots of loading screens in the beginning, and they are very reminiscent of the first Witcher game.
  • camera is too close to back of your character and there seems to be no way to zoom out.
  • lip synch seems to be off, and there are noticeable pauses in the middle of conversations.
  • graphics are mixed.  most look nice but then there's some awfulness, like your character's dog.
  • combat is OK so far, only had one instance.  pause slows down combat so you can queue up to 3 attacks depending on your energy.  maybe it's just early in the game but it felt a bit plodding.
  • Character creation:  you get to choose 3 different archtypes, then assign attribute points, then stance points (think skill tree-  the are active and passive stances), equipment points (modifiers for different weapons and armor types) and strengths/weaknesses.  for the last one you can choose up to 3 strengths, each of which has a certain point value, and then you must balance out the points with weaknesses.  some weaknesses are unavailable after choosing a certain strength so you're not cancelling out one with the other, but it is still possible to weaken one of your strengths if not paying attention.

My logic is correct, a game you can play is better than a game you can't play.  I hurried back from work only to get battle.net is down for maintenance.
