The lights are on
The second season of HBO's hit Game of Thrones is awesome, which may tempt you to buy the recent video game of the same name. If you do that, you will learn that the game is not good. But how else are you going to find out what happens in the story and how it ties into the books and TV show? You can watch this video instead.
I sit down with my fellow Song of Ice and Fire fan Matt Bertz to talk about the game's plot, characters, and how the story arcs have ties to the canon of George R. R. Martin's epic fantasy universe. If you're a fan of the world and its mythology, but don't want to spend 30 hours playing a bad (and sometimes broken) RPG, the conversation and clips in the video below hits everything you need to know.
