Game of Thrones MMO is WAT.
I’m late to the Medieval ass and titty (see: helpful chart) party they call Game of Thrones, but I’ve been chugging large quantities of the show as of late—also, beer. Pray tell beer would explain my lustful fascination with that smarmy Bharbo guy.
The trailer for upcoming free-to-play MMO, Game of Thrones: Seven Kingdoms, was unveiled recently and unlike the best-selling book and popular television series, it’s failing hard to ignite the passion thus far. Forget being professional and impartial; this trailer is a flaccid festival.
The cash cow of the Horny Bastard Organization is being handed over to Bigpoint for a browser-based game to debut in 2013. I guess everyone else was busy playing “Dawnguard” or something.
Bigpoint, responsible for not-quite-a-hit Battlestar Galactica Online, is attempting to arouse us by promising player versus player combat in the land of Westeros. You swear allegiance to either the Stark, Lannister, or Baratheon houses and ultimately claim your iron throne.
Well, whoop-dee-freaking-doo. It may very well prove more titillating than Game of Thrones: Genesis or the other RPG by Cyanide Studios. That’s not saying a whole lot, though.
