Game Of Thrones

Gaming companies come and go. But few downfalls come as much of a shock to fans as learning on the demise of Telltale Games. With big name titles under their belt, more titles announced for the next year, and hiring as recent as a month ago, fans and employees alike were caught off guard by the announcement that Telltale would be closing its doors. The downfall of Telltale is a cautionary warning to those who work in the gaming industry and a sign that the way the industry does business needs to change. What led to Telltale’s closing, what does it mean for its employees and future games? As fans and industry pros let it all sink in, here’s a list of 5 games you probably didn’t know Telltale created.

The long winter that is Game of Thrones‘ hiatus is upon us, and it’s only getting colder, guys. While there is some comfort in re-watching old episodes — “Battle of the Bastards” is an actual masterpiece — it’s also nice to tune in to something brand new that’s capable of getting you just as hyped as the action in Westeros does. There are quite a few shows out there that are perfect for Game of Thrones fans (think Rome, Vikings, and the early seasons of The Walking Dead), but most of them have been around so long that you’ve probably already seen them.

If you’re looking for a show that’s new and just as intense, brutal, and exciting as Game of Thrones is, then this is the list for you. None of these nine shows are exactly like the hit HBO series, because let’s face it, there’s nothing quite like it on TV. However, each one of these series create intricate and dangerous worlds that viewers can’t look away from.  (more…)

The Best Cosplay Pics From New York Comic Con

Whether you come to comic-con looking for toys, panels, or to raid the back issue bins in search of those books that you need to fill your collection, you can’t miss the breathtaking cosplay that fills the show floor. Homemade costumes that took months of nights spent losing fingerprints to a glue gun or hundreds (and sometimes thousands) of dollars spent on pro made props that help to blur the line between fan film grade — both were all over the Jacob Javitz Center for New York Comic Con this past weekend. And while no one could capture all of the wildly imaginative and incredibly geeky looks, we did pull a few selections from our time there for you to see. Rick and Morty, Negan, Game Of Thrones, and a few surprises — hopefully there’s something for every single fan.

Last week’s penultimate episode of Game of Thrones continued the series long tradition delivering a jaw dropping episode. In last week’s episode, the “magnificent seven” went north of The Wall to secure a wight for the purpose of convincing Cersei and everyone that their beef over the iron throne pales in comparison to the real war. It was epic as they faced off against a horde of the dead. Lucky for them, Daenerys was able to come in and save their butts courtesy of her three dragons. Unluckily for her, the Night King used an ice spear to take down her dragon Viserion and later on reanimate him as an undead dragon. As they sailed to King’s Landing for the summit, Jon decided to finally bend the knee to Danny. But was their trials and sacrifices worth it? How did this week’s episode of Game of Thrones go?

They promised us that “Winter Has Come” and it sure did on tonight’s episode of Game of Thrones! This week’s episode “Beyond The Wall” took place primarily beyond the wall as Jon Snow’s “Suicide Squad” went North in the hopes of capturing a live wight in the hopes of convincing Cersei and Daenerys to put their beef on hold so that everyone can form an alliance to fight the Night King and the upcoming army of the dead. No matter what power plays are going on in Game of Thrones, the endgame has always been the Long Night and the terror that may come, who rules is small potatoes. But their quest will not be easy, they will have to face-off against the army of the dead in an unfamiliar territory (for most of them). So how did this week’s episode of Game of Thrones go?

It was going to be hard to match last week’s kickass, balls to the wall, super awesome dragon action third act of Game of Thrones. After all, we finally got to see Danny going to war with the Lannisters herself, riding on top of Drogon, and setting countless soldiers ablaze. She also had that massive Dothraki horde as well. Every single frame of that episode was epic and really upped the ante for a show that has consistently amazed us as each episode continues since its beginning. So with such a massive episode last week, how did this week’s episode of Game of Thrones go?

The last 20 minutes of Game of Thrones last night was astounding. You can check our recap here. Although we have seen the dragons in action countless other times on the show, “The Spoils of War” was the first time we got to not only see the Dothraki army in full on action, but they also had a Drogon riding Daenerys laying waste to the Lannister Army. Everyone’s timelines were on fire talking about that epic scene and we’re all looking forward to what happens next on Game of Thrones.

It’s not even the last season of the show (let alone the last episode of the penultimate season) and Game of Thrones keeps getting better and better. Last week we saw the long-awaited meeting of Daenerys and Jon Snow. Unfortunately, things did not go as well as Jon had planned in their first awkward encounter. Daenerys did allow Jon to mine for dragon glass in her ancestral home in the hopes of the two forming an alliance. Sansa and Bran reunited in Winterfell. Unfortunately, Bran is now not really Bran and with his Three Eyed Raven powers have become someone else and not really able to know how to relate to his sister (evidenced by the fact that he tells her how beautiful she was on the night she was raped). It looks like it’s the last time we will see the San Snakes of Dorne as Cersei gave Ellaria’s daughter a poison kiss and forced her to watch her die. Lastly, Daenerys’ Unsullied army took Casterly Rock, but the Lannister army wasn’t really there as they took over Highgarden where Jamie came face to face with Olenna Tyrell who gave him the ultimate shade with her dying breath. As we are not almost halfway through the seventh season (why is there only 7 episodes?!?), how did this week of Game of Thrones end up?

As you’ve undoubtedly heard, Game of Thrones is the most pirated show in the world. Although millions and millions of people tune into the show every Sunday night on HBO, millions and millions more torrent or stream the show on various pirate sites. If you’re one of the latter, you may already know that the next episode of season 7 has already made its way online. It’s another blow to the premium cable channel who’s been on pins and needles all week worrying about a leak after it was announced they were hacked. Just one thing, this leak didn’t come from the hack, or the hackers. (more…)
