Ever since Game of Thrones’ eighth and final season came to a disappointing end, the HBO television series has inspired a variety of different browser games, mobile titles and casino instalments as well as a whole host of free-to-play and X-rated games. The television series is much loved by millions of people so why do 90% of the video games inspired by the series completely suck? Whatever the reason, here’s a look at several Game of Thrones inspired games. Admittedly, the majority of these are worse to spend your time on than having to tell The Mountain that you just accidentally ran over his beloved childhood dog, but some are worth checking out! A Game of Thrones: Genesis Bearing in mind that Game of Thrones: Genesis was released during the same year as HBO’s first season (2011), it does a pretty good job of making you feel like you are in Westeros; if your idea of Westeros is totally different from the actual series. Unfortunately, the games developers, Cyanide, … [Read more...] about Game of Thrones inspired games: Are any of them good?

Game of Thrones is ending – both the TV show this year, and the novels will have an ending too. This is the best time to develop a proper triple A Game of Thrones and Westeros based RPG or MMORPG, and here’s why. Fill The Void Left By HBO Obviously, the biggest reason and the low hanging fruit for studios right now, is to cash in on this huge void left behind by the TV show’s ending. Fans have had 10 years to follow this story, and it’s going to be hard to let go. Where do we turn to once its over? The current line-up of Game of Thrones video games isn’t all that great or memorable, and you can learn more about those in our recent article here. The Rich Untapped Stories What we’ve read in GRRM’s novels, and watched on HBO barely scratches the surface when it comes to lore in Westeros. These stories and tales can be traced back to ages – the coming of the First Men, Aegon the Conqueror and the fall of Valyria. Will we ever see these … [Read more...] about 5 Reasons Why Now’s The Time For A Game of Thrones MMORPG
Listening to MMO soundtracks always make me nostalgic for the games I haven’t played in a while, and nothing does that to me more than the music you hear in the main or capital cities. Whether the tunes sound grand or contemplative, proud or melancholy, those are the songs I always remember best. In cities, we gather to socialize with friends or to take care of housekeeping tasks like vendoring or repairing or playing the auction house. They’re safe places where our characters wind down and relax after a day of adventure. And so, this week’s episode of Battle Bards is dedicated to those city themes, in which my co-hosts Syp, Syl and I feature and discuss our favorites. What tales do these virtual metropolises have to tell through music? Sit back and enjoy as the bards share their memories that these songs evoke! LISTEN NOW! (Apologies on the sound quality in spots — we had a devil of a time recording this due to several power outages!)

Traditionally at this time of year you start seeing a bunch of review and award posts, and quite frankly I am not beneath this in the least. However since we are recording our official AggroChat Games of the Year show this weekend, I thought I would kick off this morning with a sort of “Games of the Blog” post. I am not going to be handing out awards or anything of the sort but instead just going to be spending some time this morning talking about the games that were really important to me during this calendar year. The problem with “of the year” stuff is that I always get tied up on the minutiae of whether or not I should only pick games that came out during a specific calendar year, or if I can freely pick the games that I played and meant something to me. In the end this blog post is likely going to be an amalgam of the two. Monster Hunter World – PC If I was going to pick a true “Game of the Year” then it would … [Read more...] about Games of the Blog 2018 Edition
