  • Telltale's Game of Thrones Hits Consoles December 2nd

    telltale games game of thronesTelltale are pretty good at telling tales, let's be honest. They created the award winning The Walking Dead series, managed to live up to their high expectations with The Wolf Among Us, and very recently they returned to their story-telling roots by releasing Tales of The Borderlands - a great new game that follows the concoction Telltale are known for whilst exploring the backstory behind the Borderlands universe.

    Now, they have plans to release their in-development Game of Thrones game, and it's launch date has been set for December 2nd. On this date, the first part of a six episode series will be released for PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS3 and PlayStation 4, with an iOS release following shortly after.

    It seems that the entire Game of Thrones six-piece series will be available for just $30, although details on whether players will be able to buy each episode separately have not yet been mentioned by anyone at Telltale.

    I've played through The Walking Dead game by Telltale so I know there's a lot of potential for this Game of Thrones themed game too, but what do you think of the upcoming Game of Thrones Telltale game?

    It will be interesting to see how the game correlates with the story, and i'm sure a lot of die-hard GoT fans will be eager to find out just how close to the lore Telltale have stuck to with their game.

    Will you be picking up the new game on launch, waiting for reviews or skipping it entirely? Let us know your thoughts.

  • Microsoft Shows off SmartGlass

    Last week during E3, Microsoft showcased their newest tech to compete with Nintendo's Wii U and Sony's PS3 and PS Vita interconnectivity.

    SmartGlass was revealed and is an app for phones and tablet devices that turns them into a secondary screen for your Xbox 360. While game developers may be working on interesting ways to incorporate this new technology it also turns your tablet or phone into an excellent media companion. Microsoft provided an example of how it could be used on non-gaming experiences. The example they used was using Smartglass on your tablet while you enjoy an episode of Game of Thrones. The app could identify which episode you're watching and could sync with your particular position in the show to give you additional information on characters and the physical location the characters are in within the universe.

    In addition to being an additional display in our favorite games it can also function as a multiple purpose controller to allow you to use your Xbox as a computer and more easily navigate and use Internet Explorer on your Xbox.

    It will take a few months before we see anything compelling in the game space regarding this tech, but is it something you're excited to see or are you ready for an Xbox 720 and the new generation of games?
