    Hrmm. Totally irrelevant point to nitpick but it's funny seeing the floating chainmail. Also, lol@ red asscreed guy in "fuck yeah" pose.

    Checked news and GRPG, did not see posting of.

    Why didn't anyone believe us Blood Bowl players when we told all of you that Cyanide is a poor developer?

    Also, Witcher sucks.

    From what I've read and seen a cheap Witcher clone seems about right. Only 2 characters are mentioned and that's all you may play with so it doesn't look like any party based combat. In turn, this bodes badly for complex mechanics.

    Oh, Blood, Gore, and Sexual Content, how silly I was to think you were Unnecesary in a fun game, even Detrimental most of the time. People eat you up, and I am Disappointment realized.

    Hmm...Real Time with Pause? That could work.
    Archers using their bows in melee looks rather stupid, though.
    Mormont's raven looks better than in the TV-Show. :incline:

    Combat in and of itself reminds me a bit of NWN 2, the interface looks like shit made for console buttons (no duh), art style looks... eh. Not bad, it's obviously based off the show but taken to a bit of an extreme in the "brooding tough guy" realm. Donno how the classes matter since they just seem to be variations of perks/talents taken for melee/ranged.

    Overall, not interested.

    I agree. "Things slowly worsened"? Ugh, kill me now.

    Cyanide is shit.

    The only reason why Blood Bowl turned out to be good is because Games Workshop forced them to include turn-based mode.
    Retards can't understand that BB sold not because it was a Chaos League under the official license.

    Look how they fucked up Game of Thrones tabletop by making it real time. And here comes another real-time piece of shit. Now aimed at consoletards.

    Two reasons: First, it is a statement so vague that it conveys absolutely zero information. What "things"? How did they "worsen"? How slowly is "slowly"? It's a line that, in a novel, would be cut or rephrased, preferably replaced with showing, not telling. As in, actual examples of how things worsened. It is an even greater offense in a trailer, which doesn't have many words as it is, so every one should count.

    Second, it doesn't fit the style of the rest of the speech. The dude is, in a nutshell, giving a very formal recap of a political situation. The phrase doesn't fit there, stylistically. It's something I'd expect to hear from a teenager with a vocabulary problem.
