SOLID AS ICE
The first three episodes of Telltale Games‘ six-episode season of Game of Thrones have taken us to Essos, King’s Landing, to the Wall, and even north of it. These episodes sufficiently introduced the point-of-view characters as well as some decent peripheral characters, demonstrating that making friends in Westeros can often be no easy task. Although this season’s harkening to the HBO series can sometimes feel a little shameless, it doesn’t detract from the dynamic storytelling Telltale is known for. With Episode Four: Sons of Winter, the plot has finally fully broken into its own stride without relying on familiar faces and familiar themes. Rather, the entire episode seems to be sprinting towards a climactic conclusion to the Forrester tale, while also making sure no detail is lost before the end.
