Game Of Thrones Game Leads Into Season 5

Game of Thrones A Telltale Games Series

Telltale Games has kept their Game of Thrones project under tight wraps over the past year. On Tuesday, they finally shed some light on the adventure game based on the HBO show.

Game of Thrones: A Telltale Games Series stars House Forrester. They appeared in George R. R. Martin's novel A Dance with Dragons but haven't been seen in the TV show yet. The Forresters reside in the Wolfswood in northern Westeros. Their stronghold of Ironrath has stood at the edge of Westeros' largest ironwood forest for fifteen hundred years.

"Ironrath is a testament to the strength and endurance of Ironwood," Telltale explains. "The Forrester house words are 'Iron from Ice', which echoes their belief that - like the ironwood itself - the adverse conditions and unforgiving landscape of the North only makes them stronger."

Like their bannermen at House Glover, the Forresters are loyal allies of the Starks. This puts them right in the middle of the War of Five Kings, in which Robb Stark attempts to establish the North as an independent kingdom. The Forresters' control over ironwood, a valuable resource for making weapons and ships, is sure to make them a target in the conflict.

In the game, players will control five different characters spread throughout Westeros and neighboring continent Essos. Some are members of the Forresters family while others are servants. Each has a different role in deciding the fate of House Forrester.

As with Telltale Games' previous series Wolf Among Us and The Walking Dead, player's choices will have a big impact on the story.

"Playing as five characters not only reflects the epic scope of Game of Thrones, but is also something that the player needs to be mindful of. This is because the actions of one character can ripple out to affect the rest of House Forrester. Multiply the actions of one character by five, and you're truly playing the Game of Thrones…where you win, or you die."

The six-episode game will begin around the end of Season 3 of the show. It will conclude right before Season 5, scheduled to air on HBO sometime in 2015. It's possible that Telltale could wrap up their game around the time the show starts.

The first episode, "Iron From Ice," is expected to launch by the end of 2014. Telltale will release it on PC, Mac, PS4, Xbox One, PS3, Xbox 360 and iOS along with "additional platforms" to be announced at a later date.

If you compare the way you use your computer today with how you used it, let’s say 10 years ago, you will probably notice a big difference, even if you essentially still do the same tasks with it. Applications replace Software and Add-Ons replace Stand Alone Programs.

It’s obvious, we are doing a majority of our work in our browser. Even designers can utilize free photoshop alternatives which are completely web based, without ever leaving their beloved browser. Extensions and Add-Ons enhance this experience also, by turning your web browser into a real hub.

Taylor Swift Unhappy After Princeton Review Misquotes Her Lyrics in SAT Test Paper

The popstar of several multi-million dollar hits and multi-million dollarlegs, Taylor Swift is not one to be messed with. The Princeton Review found that out the hard way after they published Tay Tay's lyrics as an example of bad grammar on a SAT practice test.

To be fair, they were trying to make the point that pop songs are where grammar goes to die and also cited other pop singers such as Katy Perry, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga and Kesha.

The fiercely loyal Tay Tay fans were not likely to let this go by and Tumblr user Nava who was apparently having ' an amazing time studying for SAT' when she spotted this, posted a snapshot with the caption, " .... it isn't a pop song it's a country pop song so take that Princeton review Taylor is grammar queen so shhhhhh.."


Unluckily for the Princeton Review however they misquoted the lyrics of the song Fifteen. The question paper wanted students to grammatically correct, "Somebody tells you they love you, …

Jessica Lange Is Definitely Done With American Horror Story But Look Who's Checking in...

Good news and bad news, American Horror Story fans.

Queen Jessica Lange confirmed at tonight's PaleyFest panel that she will not return for American Horror Story: Hotel.

"Yes, I'm done," she told the audience, "We've had a great run here. I have absolutely loved doing these four characters that I've had the opportunity to play. In all the madness, I've loved the writers, my actors, Ryan and the whole, I mean, insanity of it, shooting here, shooting in new orleans, the stories, everything."

While that is definitely not music to our ears, the panel did offer up a few happier Hotel tidbits, like the fact that White Collar star Matt Bomer will be joining the show for the season, along with 30 Rock star Cheyenne Jackson. Both Bomer and Jackson are pretty familiar with Ryan Murphy and co, having both guest starred on Glee. Bomer also appeared in American Horror Story: Freak Show as a prostitute who was brutally murdered by Dandy (Finn Witrock).

While Jack…
