Telltale’s Game of Thrones: Episode Four “Sons of Winter” Review

Telltale regains the footing in the Seven Kingdoms.

Sons of Winter, the fourth episode in Telltale’s Game of Thrones series, is a turning point in the series based on the popular HBO TV show, Game of Thrones. As of this point, I really hadn’t been interested in what happened to the Forresters. But, man, what an episode.

In this episode, I felt like I was actually making a difference. I felt the weight of the world on my shoulders. If I messed one thing up in my grand plan, me and my family were sure to be doomed to death. Everything just felt more meaningful without the weight of living up to the TV show.

Thankfully, the writers behind this episode have written out any possible ties to the TV show, other than a passing mention of The Red Wedding and Margaery Tyrell showing up to scold me, I felt like I didn’t have to watch the TV show to understand the weight of my choices, which was a problem with the previous episode “The Sword in the Darkness”. It just feels like a Telltale game, instead of a thing that HBO made to promote Game of Thrones Season 5.

Oh, and it wouldn’t be a Telltale review if I didn’t mention the performance. It’s really great. Sure, there’s the occasional hiccup during the Season recap, but other than that, the game finally runs well.

So, if you’re interested in Game of Thrones at all, this time is great as any. The story, gameplay, decisions are all meaningful now. There’s really no reason I can see not to pick this game up, other than time constraints.

Understanding PC vs Consoles

So, I know what you’re thinking. Well, hopefully. You’re probably thinking something along the lines of “PC vs consoles?! Oh no, another propaganda piece about PC is superior to consoles.” Well, I can say for certain that is not the case.

What is the case, however, is trying to understand what each platform brings to the table, so to speak. First, some rules. I do not consider handhelds like the Nintendo 3DS or Vita to fall under the “console” category. Consoles are PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Wii U. Mobile devices such as tablets/phones are another thing entirely. People try to make games for them and they mostly work.

Either way, I’ve found myself really at a crossroads lately, with my nights/weekends where I can actually game all the more troublesome to manage. What I mean by this is that my Xbox One takes awhile to boot, plus it’s in my living room, which requires me to logoff my computer, turn on the Xbox One, sit down with the controller in hand and decide from the 30 or so games I have on my Xbox. Lazy, I know.

But there’s a good reason. With PC gaming, unless it’s a game like The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, things like anti-aliasing and render quality aren’t things you generally worry about. Plus, your games are literally right in front of you.

Next comes a major factor: price. If it’s above $5, I’m going to be pretty hesitant about buying any game. I really don’t like spending $20 on one game, but rather, many games. The philosophy behind this is simple, the more games I have to play, the more joy I get out of playing video games. This is something that has become a bit of a problem on services like Xbox Live and PlayStation Network. Why should I pay $20 for a bullfighting game when I can pay $20 for about 15 games? One, it’s just too expensive. Two, really? A bullfighting game? Three, why aren’t there more $5 games? Four, why don’t more games get promoted via Deals with Gold or PlayStation Weekly Deals?

Trust me, I don’t mean to harp on how bad this situation has become. It’s just irritating that Xbox and PlayStation have fallen so far. Back in the days of Xbox LIVE Arcade, I could buy games for $5 and was pretty much guaranteed a great game. Nowadays, you should expect to pay at least $15 for a halfway decent game, which in turn limits players from buying any possible expansions/DLC in the future, as they are most likely turned off by the pricing model of the base game.

This is just one of many problems that I hope is fixed sometime in the future. Yes, I know I can play PlayStation 1/2/3/4 games on the Vita and Windows 10 will be able to stream the games I own from my Xbox One to my PC, but both feel like a half measure to something greater, like using PlayStation Now to play PlayStation games on my phone/PC or using Steam to play the PC versions of my Xbox One games (and maybe even OG Xbox or Xbox 360) when I just want accessibility.

Gaming While Working

So, if you listen to my last few episodes of The BladedTech Show, you’ll know that I recently started my first job.

However, playing video games seems to be a task now than something I just do. I have to be more careful in picking what games I play due to the time and money it takes to play the game. Also, I like completely different games now than I did before I worked. A prime example is that I used to love long story-driven games, but, now, I just want a cool game I can experience in chunks and be satisfied with.

Oh? And about the time? That’s become a real hassle too. I find myself drifting more and more towards my PC, even though it barely plays today’s hits because it’s just…easier. I know that my sound as if I’m lazy, but most of the time, I’m sitting at my computer already when I have free time and is less of a hassle in general. I mean, I love the games on my Xbox One, but I feel like it takes too long to actually getting to the games I like.

Oh, and another thing, sales are a big factor on what games I play. In fact, this past Friday, I picked up Goat Simulator (with GoatZ), Polarity, The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings – Enhanced Edition, The Witcher Enhanced Edition and Homefront. Why? Well, because I could purchase the aforementioned titles at a discount that I already had some interest in playing. Xbox and PlayStation may claim they have great sales, but when I can buy all those games for about $19, those sales fall flat in comparison.

So, this time, I want to hear from you guys on what you do to make time for games and what you do to save up for big releases such as The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

Until next time, you can check out some articles from the other fine folks at Proven Gamer as well as podcasts like Trophy Whores, Press X To Win, and my podcast, The BladedTech Show.

See you soon, but first, I’ll be at work.

Batman: Arkham Knight Season Pass and Premium Edition Announced

 

Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment has announced a Season Pass for the hotly anticipated title, Batman: Arkham Knight that will run you about $40 if purchased on its own, or in a new Premium Edition that will cost you about $100 on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but not PC, for some unknown reason.

The Season Pass previously mentioned will provide you with DLC for about six months after the game’s release on June 23rd, 2015. I don’t know exactly what kind of DLC, but Warner Brothers Interactive says to expect “new story missions, additional super-villains invading Gotham City, legendary Batmobile skins, advanced challenge maps, alternative character skins, and new driveable race tracks.”

A new trailer came out this week that shows off the darker tone and the apparent tag team mechanic that is in the new Batman title. You can find that trailer below.

Batman: Arkham Knight is coming June 23rd for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One; with Mac and Linux coming at a later date.

If you love Batman: Arkham Knight as much as I do already, make sure to check back to Proven Gamer each and every day for more information on all things video games. Have a great day!

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey Announced

Panache Digital Games, the studio co-founded by Assassin’s Creed, Assassin’s Creed II, Assassin’s Creed Brotherhood and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Creative Director Patrice Désilets, announced today their very first project, Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey.

Ancestors: The Humankind Odyssey is a third person action-adventure survival episodic game. In each episode, you guys and gals are going to relive the greatest moments of mankind with a documentary stylization.

While that’s not a lot to go on, I’m imagining something very similar to something Telltale would make or even Life is Strange. However, the documentary take is quite interesting from someone who’s played a lot of these types of games.

Panache didn’t go on to say a whole lot more other than “stay tuned much more to come in 2015!”

After 6 years, Overlord is back. Just not in the way you’d expect.

Mark Silk is back as well to voice the Minions.

Other than that, all I see here is that Overlord is back as an Action RPG that you can play alone or with friends. So, take this information very carefully, because I have a feeling this might change soon.

Enter the Nexus on June 2nd

Heroes of the Storm has had one pretty great year. The Closed Beta launched this January and now we know when those without a code will be able to play it. If you want to have a hand in making the game the best it can be, there will be an open beta period that begins on May 19th.

The game will release with 30+ playable Heroes, over 130 Skins, 14 mounts, and 7 Battlegrounds, each providing their own set of challenges with more to come over the months after release.

Now, if you’re interested in celebrating the launch of Heroes of the Storm, there will be a live stream on June 1st. More information, I’m told, will be doled out as the event draws nearer.

If you just want to see people play the game, then you should be watching Heroes of the Dorm, where students from 400+ schools across the US and Canada compete for more than $450K in tuition and other prizes. On April 26th, the Finals of Heroes of the Dorm will be hosted at the Shrine Auditorium and Expo Hall in Los Angeles. If you can’t come, you’ll be able to watch it live on any ESPN channel or on WatchESPN with details to follow soon.

Oh, and if you’re already playing, you’ll be happy to know that any progress or purchases you have made during Closed Beta will carry to the Open Beta as well as post-launch.

Welcome Back To Star Wars Battlefront

DICE, EA and Lucasfilm announced today that Star Wars Battlefront will be released on November 17th in North America and November 19th in Europe as thousands of fans at Star Wars Celebration watched the first full-length trailer. Star Wars Battlefront is a stupendously authentic and immersive experience built in the Frostbite 3 engine that was previously seen in Dragon Age Inquisition.

“Like so many others around the world, everyone at DICE is a tremendous fan of the Star Wars universe,” said the Senior Producer of Star Wars Battlefront, Sigurlina Ingvarsdottir. “To be working on a Star Wars project and knowing we are helping to represent the universe we love to our generation and a legion of new Star Wars fans is truly an honor. Thanks to the access and knowledge shared with us by Lucasfilm, and the passion and talent of our team, we plan to deliver an amazing game that puts you right in the middle of theStar Wars battles you always imagined playing.”

Star Wars Battlefront will let Star Wars fans such as myself live out heroic moments and battles using blasters, speeder bikes, snow speeders, AT-ATs, TIE fighters and the Millennium Falcon. As suspected, Star Wars Battlefront has you visiting Endor, Hoth, Tatooine and Sullust, which has, to my knowledge, not been explored in any story/official lore. You’ll also be able to play as Darth Vader and Boba Fett and more. In Star Wars Battlefront, there will be a wide range of modes tailored for different battle types, from 40-person competitive multiplayer to carefully crafted missions you can play by yourself, with a friend on the same screen via split-screen or co-op online.

If you pre-order Star Wars Battlefront, which I don’t recommend due to how little I know, you can download the Battle of Jakku, which is being touted as a pivitol moment when the New Republic confronted key Imperial holdouts on a remote desert planet on the Out Rim. This battle takes place after the Battle of Endor and will allow you to experience Jakku, before the events of Star Wars: The Force Awakens. This battle will be available for all those who pre-order on December 1st, 2015. Anyone who doesn’t pre-order will get it later for free on December 8th, 2015.

As noted in the opening paragraph, Star Wars Battlefront will be available in North America on November 17th and starting November 19th in Europe for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and on PC via EA’s Origin distribution software.

For more information on Star Wars Battlefront and the numerous amounts of titles that are releasing soon, make sure to check back here on Proven Gamer each and every day for great articles and podcasts.

Project CARS Release Date Announced… For Real This Time

Project CARS is a game that’s been delayed more times than I can count. Apparently, though, this time the release date is set in stone for May 8th, which is a little less than a month away, as of this post. Oh, and just take Bandai Namco’s word for it.

Look, I love racing games as much as the next guy, but it’s kind of my job to be a bit uneasy about the release of this game after multiple delays and nothing more than a Tweet from the company that is assuring me of its release.

Either way, the game was originally racing onto PS4, Xbox One and PC in November of 2014. The developer, Slightly Mad Studios, whom you may remember from Need for Speed: Shift, promptly decided to delay the game three times due to polishing and making sure the game is ready. Like I said, the game will be available May 8th on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC with a version for the Wii U sometime later.

EA Is Shutting Down 4 Of Their Free-To-Play Titles In 90 Days

In EA’s blog, “The Beat”, Patrick Soderlund, Executive Vice President of EA Studios, EA has announced that free-to-play games Battlefield Heroes, Battlefield Play4Free, Need for Speed World and FIFA World will no longer be in active development and will not be supported in 90 days.

However, there is some good news in the post. EA has actually started listening to us consumers in regards to the fact that we love Star Wars: The Old Republic (which will be unaffected by this news) and the fact that most people don’t even know that the four titles previously mentioned still exist outside of blatantly huge ads in the Digital Rights Management (DRM) software, Origin.

Even though it is sad that these titles are no longer being supported, look at the bright side. It’s been more than five years since most of these games became available. That’s incredible in this day and age. I’ve seen games that have barely lasted a year, so it is evident that the respective communities behind these games are some of the best out there, however big or small that may be. While these titles may be going away, I like to think that we may see more from these studios in the coming months.

Invisible, Inc. Sneaks Its Way Onto Steam May 12th, PS4 Version On The Way

In a post on Invisible, Inc’s Early Access page on Steam, Klei Entertainment announced that after 9 updates and 8 months in Early Access, Invisible, Inc., earlier known as Incognita, is officially launching on May 12th 2015 with support for PC/Mac/Linux on Steam and a DRM-free option on their website.

The game is best described as a stealth-strategy game that calls comparisons to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, but with a kind of James Bond type of style. Throughout the game, you’ll strategize your way through procedurally-generated areas, deal with guards (either directly or indirectly), and complete a certain objective.

As a kind of celebration, Klei has also announced that a PlayStation 4 version of Invisible, Inc. is in development, but does not have a set date as of this writing.

For a better look, take a gander at the screens and the most recent trailer.

Guitar Hero Live Announced

Remember that teaser video? Yeah, I called it. Guitar Hero is coming back. The new entry, Guitar Hero Live, is being published by Activision and developed by FreeStyleGames, who has worked on DJ Hero and its sequel. Activision mentions that Guitar Hero Live will be imagined for the modern era, introducing live-action audiences and band mates that react dynamically to how you play on stage, a 24-hour playable music video network, a completely redesigned guitar controller and support for your console and mobile devices.

Guitar Hero Live consists of two components – Guitar Hero Live, which has you living as a rock star with “vivid realism” and is shown in first-person as you join real bands and perform for real crowds, whether it the show is in a club or a music festival. You can get hyped before shows, close a set to a sold out venue and more.

Guitar Hero TV, or GHTV, is all about finding new music. You can start GHTV and play along with official music videos from a broad range of genres. You’ll be able to choose from artists such as The Black Keys, Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, Gary Clark Jr., Green Day, Ed Sheeran, The War on Drugs, The Killers, Skrillex, The Rolling Stones, The Lumineers, Carrie Underwood, Pierce the Veil and Blitz Kids, with many more being announced in the coming months. GHTV is also a social experience, so you can compete among your friends for high scores in the same room or online, as well as completing challenges.

Most interestingly enough, Guitar Hero Live has a new controller. The new controller has been designed to feel more authentic and look the part. You have two rows of three buttons and is supposedly easier than ever to just pick up and play as well as allowing formation of chords and notes as you increase the difficulty. You’ll also be able to use the guitar controller on your tablet or smartphone, as Guitar Hero Live is the same experience both on mobile and console.

Guitar Hero Live is rocking its way to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360, Wii U and “select mobile devices” this Fall for $100. Now, if you just can’t wait, the Best Buy Theatre in New York City will allow fans to play the game from 6 PM ET to 9 PM ET today. If you can’t make it out, Guitar Hero Live will be heading to other locations later on in the week.

Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus Remake In Development

Oddworld lead Lorne Lanning has confirmed to Kinda Funny Games that a remake of Abe’s Exoddus is currently is development as part of a poll the company performed to gauge which game to develop next, with the clear answer being Oddworld: Abe’s Exoddus. As well as that may be, the game is still in early development, so don’t expect to hear more about this anytime soon.

The remake of Abe’s Exoddus will also be named by the fans in the vein of Oddworld: New ‘n’ Tasty and when Abe’s Exoddus launches, the marketing will be the strongest that Oddworld Inhabitants has ever done, and provided Abe’s Exoddus sells well, the title following will be AAA both in scope and quality.

Lorne Lanning goes on to say that New ‘n’ Tasty has sold about 2.4 Million copies, mostly due to the title being free on PlayStation Plus.
