Match made in comic book heaven: Marvel and Telltale Games to make video games together

If there’s a game studio who’s on a roll this past year, it would have to be Telltale Games. After inking deals with the hugely popular Game of Thrones and Minecraft franchises, it was announced by Marvel a few days ago that Marvel and Telltale Games will be making video games together based on Marvel intellectual property. Given Telltale Games’ proven ability to accurately convey emotional and brooding stories in previous games like The Walking Dead, this would go perfectly in hand with the darker stories of the Marvel Universe, and I’m honestly struggling to contain my excitement. Marvel Games creative director, Bill Roseman, did say, however, that the games developed under the partnership would feel “exquisite” and “sexy” – this is interesting as this isn’t generally the vibe that I get from Telltale Games’ current games, despite their storytelling prowess, so presumably some collaboration is going to go on between the two parties to make ...

Game of Thrones is the 'most pirated' TV show of the year

Game of Thrones is the ‘most pirated’ TV show of the year. Again.

The headline is becoming a regular fixture at the end of every year: “Game of Thrones is the ‘most pirated’ TV show of the year”. In no way is it surprising given the show’s runaway success, and for the third year in a row, no less, but just how far ahead it is of the competition in terms of downloads boggles the mind. Torrentfreak released some interesting figures in its annual review, estimating that episodes of Game of Thrones were downloaded over 8.1 million times, which when compared to the number of viewers in the U.S. (7.16 million) who (legally) watched it on TV, is rather large. A distant second and third are The Walking Dead (4.2 million downloads) and The Big Bang Theory (3.6 million downloads), and it also appears that the number of downloaded TV episodes has risen in the past year. Also take into account that this is ...

The Game of Thrones video game will launch starting on December 2nd says Telltale Games

When Telltale Games continued to promise that their latest game, the highly anticipated Game of Thrones video game, would definitely be released this year, we couldn’t help but wonder if the games studio was cutting it a little thin with just over a month left in the year. As it turns out, we had nothing to worry about as the studio today announced on its Twitter account that the game will launch starting on December 2nd and staggered depending on the platform. First cabs of the rank will be PC, Mac and PS4 on December 2nd, followed by Xbox One and Xbox 360 on December 3rd and iOS on December 4th. Perhaps unusually, the PS3 version will languish behind with a December 9th release date, and the Android version has only received a general “December” approximation. #GameOfThrones A @TelltaleGames Series Ep 1 #IronFromIce 12/2 PC/Mac; PS4 SCEA 12/3 Xbox One & 360; ...

A teaser trailer drops for Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series

While Telltale Games gave us some juicy details about its upcoming adventure series, Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series, last week, today they’ve given us a teaser trailer that gives us our first official look at what the game is actually going to look like. As expected, Telltale has adopted its tried and true animated graphical style, and the trailer appears to show quite a few of the TV show’s characters as well as referring to the Forrester’s whose House you will represent during the game. Check it out: The first episode of six is called Iron from Ice and will presumably set the stage for the House of Forrester who appear to be quite fond of the ironwood trees that they live amongst. It will be interesting to see if Telltale has recruited the actual actors from the TV show to voice their video game likeness or whether ...

Details drop about Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series

Telltale Games is a studio that has by now become synonymous with fantastic storytelling. Its gut-wrenchingly emotional The Walking Dead series showed that it could not only adapt TV show worlds to video games, but could tell masterful stories at the same time. So it’s no surprise that one of the world’s favourite TV shows, Game of Thrones, is getting the Telltale Games treatment, and we get our first details about the game today. Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series will be a six episode affair and will start with a episode titled “Iron from Ice“, focusing on the story of House Forrester who live at Ironrath, playing from five different perspectives of five different members of the House. The story will follow the events of The War of the Five Kings, and for those invested in the TV show, picks up its story somewhere at the end of Season ...
