Elden Ring


really I’d love to live through Chromehounds, or see its concepts of limited radio communication and commander roles and movement over a large-enough map for called-out interception be applied to some other chunky mech game


yes the on-the-nose “subversion” is what gets to me. it’s arrogant. forgoing any actual nuance just to flex to your audience that no one’s ever DARED pull these kinds of ideas in fantasy before. better hold onto your balls KIDDO

imo GoT was most entertaining a couple of seasons in when it felt like i was watching a cellular automaton unfold - seeing characters disperse and randomly interact with others from up-until-then separate settings, without always offering clear “beats” or “closure” - but it was impendingly obvious that stuff would have to become more cemented and predictable to give it any kind of climax, and i have no idea how you’d evoke that comparison in an RPG anyway. i’d never recommend the show to anyone unless they have a buddy also viewing it for the first time, because speculating where it might go is far more interesting than actually seeing it through.


face/off but-


Hideki Miyazaki’s Seven Books I Mean Nine Season I Mean-

Whoever publishes this is going to make them throw in a trophy that references Game of Thrones directly, that’s all I know.


what are the odds GRRM insists on referencing characters or details that were changed in the tv adaption just out of spite

So how about that talk of different lords of lands with different powers to gain for your char

Oh wait sorry don’t have another Game of Thrones joke yet, that’s what I should be scraping for


the best thing worth noting is that grrm and miyazaki both have very wide, cool influences and maybe they will just take all of those and riff on them together

I mean it’s interesting to see a thread demonstrate such a powerful skew, I’m actually more eager to see how accurately this tired brass section ends up matching the actual composition

Nevermind Game of Thrones. George R R R R Marrrtin wrote the most depressing episode of the New Twilight Zone. I hope this is the side of him we’re getting.


You’re in a thread about From deliberately generating hype with this auteurist George R. R. Martin thing. Seems safer to assume they all along knew exactly what they’re doing by elevating this heroic named creator


I think that’s reasonable for authors, although I’m not familiar with his TV writing. It also sounds, from the context in this thread, that his image is inexorably tied with decisions of the Game of Thrones TV show.


wait so this’ll secretly be a megaman game is what you’re saying?

color me interested

not even a GOT fan but I wish my first introduction to this was a carefully prepared trailer instead of a news article because I probably would have gone nuts

let’s just leak the hum-ho games before E3 from now on

The only one I’ve played was Underground for a few minutes (not sure if 1 or 2), those were pretty hot back then, still seem revered classics of the sort. Recommended? I’d go back for some street racing. Soundtracks were also very choice with a few fav artists/tracks.


i only skimmed this thread but grrmartin is making a street racing game with the studio ghibli guy and it’s called Elden Ring?


Rudie recommended it to me too and it’s incredible. I can’t even tell what the intonation of that is. You can get it for free if you have one of the Origin subscriptions. I had trouble getting my gamepad to work, which was weird and what ultimately stopped me from playing it more

I think that “In the House of the Worm” might make for a good video game setting.


Why hasn’t anyone thrown money at a 100 Years War prestige show yet. The Joan of Arc arc alone would bring in a tsunami of twitter yass kween cash


i think the worst possible cultural product that could exist is a ryan murphy joan of arc show. it has to happen
