    Max.Payne.3.XBOX360-iMARS also appeared as XPG was supposedly a repack or something (it has yet to be nuked and even if it was it would be for repack so carry on).<br/>

    Game of Thrones NTSC XBOX360-iMARS<br/>
    Region locked NA at least (it is out in about two weeks in Europe)<br/>

    This looked quite interesting and indeed quite promising (it is also the last RPG until August when Risen 2 comes out although Borderlands 2 is out about a month later). IGN however (pinch of salt or not is up to you) seem to have just panned it though- http://uk.ign.com/articles/2012/05/15/game-of-thrones-review <br/><br/>

    Amazon is being rather wordy today so I will leave it to that.<br/>
    THE AWARD-WINNING INTERNATIONAL BOOK & TV PHENOMENON…<br/>
    NOW A HIGHLY ANTICIPATED GAME DEVELOPED IN COLLABORATION WITH GEORGE R. R. MARTIN!<br/>
    <br/>
    With an original story written under the supervision of George R. R. Martin, Game of Thrones promises to deliver the ultimate interactive role-playing experience for fans. The game is filled with familiar locations straight from the pages of the beloved fantasy saga along with the likeness and voices of several actors portrayed in the TV series.<br/>
    <br/>
    With this epic new Game of Thrones game, fans will have a chance to not simply read or watch the story, but to take an active role in the riveting drama as it unfolds.<br/>
    Overview<br/>
    In this 30-plus hour role-playing game, players will enter the gritty and medieval fantasy world of Westeros. As one of two original characters with disparate motivations, both former soldiers of Robert’s Rebellion, players will forge alliances and wage battles as they play a pivotal role in the ongoing war for power of the Seven Kingdoms. Their journey will span numerous quests, during which they will interact with many characters and make key decisions that impact the realm.<br/>
    <br/>
    Standing before the majesty and bitter isolation of the Wall or walking through the streets and alleys of King’s Landing, players will not simply pass by locations and characters integral to the series; they will explore and interact with them, meeting and learning about the people and history that defines them and their importance. Key decisions and major events will have meaningful impact on Westeros, allowing the player to witness how the game world evolves over time based on their actions or inactions.<br/>
    <br/>
    Moreover, Game of Thrones introduces an innovative “active slowdown tactical combat engine” in which the player can slow but not completely stop the action, forcing them to plan and execute quickly. In this way, combat delivers the intensity, grit, and realism that the books and TV series are known for.<br/>

Now, despite divergent goals, they must come together to deal with common enemies, surviving countless battles and foiling the plot that threatens the kingdom.<br/>

    I'd be a lot more excited about it if you got to play as people from the show, instead of just random people they made up. I mean, that's really the only reason you get a liscensed game - I didn't buy Lego harry potter to play as some random hogwarts student.

    I don't know, I mean there is the projection onto a known character thing but equally there is the trouble you either make an alternate universe (or risk making one if your player wants to stab one of the main characters or indeed save them), get constrained by the story (it is not actually that action heavy and trying to simulate spycraft, economic issues and such gets very complex very quickly and in some ways does not lend itself to a game), set it outside the timeframe of a story (or between parts of one) or expand the story/use it as a loose framing device (Goldeneye on the N64 being a great example).

    Equally there is a fairly popular pen and paper RPG based on the series which seems like it thrives precisely because you do not have t play as characters from the series (I have never actually played a pen and paper RPG but I read the rulebook to the game of thrones/song of ice and fire RPG the other day and it was pretty good) not to mention half the fun of the books for many and a lot of fantasy in general is the idea of the game universe.

    There is certainly a place for a faithful adaptation/retread but I would not go so far as to call it the be all and end all.
