Cinema meets Video Games as Charles Dance (from Game of Thrones) speaks about his performance in the upcoming fantasy, role playing, action / adventure game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt and how games have evolved over time to draw in more and more mature audiences.
No longer are there limitations to what the visual aspects of a game can produce. In many respects, the act of feeling as if you are within the experience, or “present”, paired with the fact that video game graphics now rival and often surpass CG found in films means that a AAA game production can have superior storytelling to a big-budget blockbuster.
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt runs on REDengine 3 with Umbra 3 PhysX and SpeedTree tools implemented and will become available on PlayStation 4, Xbox ONE, and Windows PC (through GOG and Steam) on May 19, 2015 and promises to be quite an epic experience.

Game of Thrones on Xbox One is back for another round at RealGamerNewz. When we last left you off, things were going a bit crazy. We’ve reached the point where Ironrath is held by Whitehill but the real intensity again comes from interpersonal drama between the characters involved. This episode will see players taking the role of various characters (such as Asher) including some less than favorite folks you may know from the show. The Lost Lords kicks off with one of the famous double, triple betrayal moments that made the HBO show Game of Thrones popular in the first place, and pits you right in the middle of a scandal through which you wind up being framed.
There are moments where the game takes a sort of point and click adventure approach. Weapons can be grabbed from the environment, and information can be derived depending on the choices you make when interacting with objects around you. The combat system is at its finest for true Telltale style as dodging, attack timing, and quickly making precise selections as to which attacks to make plays a crucial role in each scene. The brutality, cussing, and overall darkness of the atmosphere are what you will know, love, and expect if you’re at all a fan of the Game of Thrones television series.
There has been some fair amount of criticism as to the lack of weight some decisions players make have on the overall outcome of the scenes in this episode of Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series. That being said, the second episode of this game features a more interesting series of combat scenes and for me as a gamer, I find that more important. All the deep story-line branches and viscous double crossing that players expect to see is here. Even if you have never seen the HBO television series, interesting characters who have a lot going on are at each other’s throats and it makes for a great time.

You’ve been warned.
Episode 2 kicks off tomorrow for PS3, PS4, PC/MAC and STEAM. Xbox owners can download it on February 4th, while Android and iOS users can own the 5th.
The official release dates for the first episode of Telltale’s, episodic Game of Thrones title, has been revealed. Episode one, titled “Iron From Ice” will be available for download on December 2, 2014 for PC/Mac and PS4 in NA, Dec 3 for Xbox One and 360, PS4 in EU. December 4 for iOS.

The first episode for Telltale Games’ upcoming Game of Thrones adaptation is almost upon us. Despite that, no one knew what the game or its characters looked like, as Telltale has been keeping it a close guarded secret. Well that may have just changed, thanks to twitter account @lifelower, whose description reads, “XBLA Watchdog! Exploring for upcoming XBLA & putting them on the release calendar.”
The account has shared the eight screens below.
Telltale Games has not confirmed the legitimacy of these photos, nor have they denied them, so for now take them with a grain of salt. If these screens are faux, then whoever created them did a very impressive job, combining Telltale’s signature art style with the look of the popular HBO show.
Episode one of six, “Iron From Ice” is due out before the end of this year for PS4, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PC/Mac and iOS. Stay tuned for more details.
What’s interesting is that the tweet refers to ‘Iron From Ice’ as episode one of six. Telltale’s seasons usually last for five episodes. If this going to be a new standard for their episodic games, or just exclusive to GoT, remains to be seen.
It was recently revealed that players will be switching through five playable characters this time around. Each character is a member of the same family and the choices made will “affect everyone in the family.”
“That adds a whole new layer to things that we’re really excited about,” said Steve Allison, Telltale’s senior vice president of publishing
Stay tuned for more details, including a release date.
