This is the first real look we’ve had of this one. Atlus released a trailer today for A Game of Thrones, its upcoming role-playing game from Cyanide. Say what you will about Cyanide, and you can really say a lot about Cyanide, but it’s currently the keeper of the fantasy license. I’m working on a hands-on preview for Confrontation, another licensed Cyanide joint, which I’ll post tomorrow but this trailer for AGoT looks interesting and with Atlus behind it maybe this developer can finally take the next step from “developer with a license” to “developer with a really good game.”

“When the pulse-pounding action becomes overwhelming” Haha!
If I didn’t know this game had the Game of Thrones license, I would think it was a pretty generic action-rpg with some mildly deep basic systems. The guy in the trailer is mostly using wordy sentences to describe simple things like ranged versus melee combat, which isn’t really the talk of a good game. The people who make good games will usually enthusiastically talk about weird details and discoveries they made.
That particular statement comes off as a bit insulting, doesn’t it?
I should clarify, this statement:
“When the pulse-pounding action becomes overwhelming”
Looks kinda Dragon Agey.
After being burned on Genesis (which has never been properly patched, afaik), I’ll take a wait-and-see approach to this one. I’ll probably end up waiting for a Steam sale, unless word of mouth is extraordinary.
The trailer definitely looks better than I ever thought the game might be. By expectations are very, very low for this. I will wait and see. If people generally like it, I will pick it up during a Steam sale down the road. I already have an impressive back log as it is.
