Atlus's Game of Thrones
RPG is set before the events of the book and television series - during a more peaceful period under King Robert Baratheon, the first of his name, King of the Andals, the Rhoynar, and the First Men, and protector of the realm.
Fans of the series like me, would probably buy it sight unseen; however, the rest of you might like to see the game's combat system in action. Long time RPG fans should see nothing unfamilar, and for me personally, it looked very much like Dragon Age: Origin
's combat. The difference is that instead of pausing the game to queue up attacks, you can only slow down the action. That feature seems to be thematically tied to the idea that in Westeros, when you play the game of thrones, you can't rest if you want to survive.
Game of Thrones
is set for release on May 15th.
