This is a cool image created by Dynamaito and it features Game of Thrones characters as street fighters.  It’s really neat how many small nods there are: Hear Me Roar, the Lanniser slogan. Bronn as a back up.  Tyion’s infamous slaps.  Paying debts.  The small council in the background.  Joffrey looking like a bitch.  I would totally buy this game.  I hear the only Game of Thrones game out there was that rpg that didn’t do so hot.  This is the kind of game they need, one where they can’t tinker with the ambitious story scope and just capitalize on the many references they could fit into characters, back ups, settings, and attacks.

This is a perfect time to post this kind of thing considering the major election of 2012 is coming up in a couple of months.  What we have here is a series of political attack ads, as seen on the ones on television with corny pictures, enunciated sentences and harsh personal statements that attack other potential candidates.  We have all the major players here, Robb Stark, Joffrey Baratheon, and Daenerys Targaryen.  I loved the ploys used like the Birth Certificate and other things.  Check out the other two below.

Welcome to a Minecraftian pixelized version of Westeros, from the hit HBO series Game of Thrones. Incredibly detailed stills in the album speak for themselves, almost perfectly representing their counterparts in the opening sequence quite well. The amount of depth and effort put into something like this must have been immense, so hopefully you enjoy both the server and the album that includes many pictures from the landscape.

I feel like I’ve posted 5 of these Game of Thrones opening covers in the past 2 weeks, but I keep stumbling upon awesome new renditions of it.  This one doesn’t actually feature the actual title screen like the Simpsons or Stark Kids version I’ve featured before, but the beautiful violin work of Jason Yang and the awesome rock acoustic mixing of Roger Lima and the White Noise Lab.

These beautiful graphics each represent a powerful house in the Song of Ice and Fire Universe [ie. Game of Thrones].  Among them are the words and symbol of each of the houses.  A pretty cool collection.  There are a significant number more, ones with names belonging to houses like Karstark and Bracken.  They’re the relatively third party houses [at least as I’ve read so far], so I left them out.  But I made sure to get all the good ones.  Check out the nearly dozen of them below.

I can’t believe how fast these past 8 weeks have gone and how far we’ve advanced in Game of Thrones.  The big battle is up next, and most of the pieces are lining up in their final positions.  It’s interesting how the producers have taken things so far as they’re including tidbits of the third book/season in the episodes so far.  I wouldn’t say a lot happened this episode except that some characters are walking to new places seeing as the finale is right around the corner.  This marks the first time in a while where we’ve seen most if not all of the major storylines, which might explain why so little was actually done.  But by far my favorite part included the beautiful Talisa, but we’ll get into all of that below.  Obvious spoilers.

Game of Thrones is getting a little crazy and is tweaking my interest.  Not the traditional type of crazy or interest tweaking, where there are babies being slain in the street or rat torture devices being strapped to people’s chest, but rather the type of I’m not entirely sure on how to follow what’s going to happen.  Now I’ve read the books and I know all the plot follow ups with last night’s many cliff hangers, but the way they’re executed leaves a sense of interpretation that will genuinely surprise me when I see them seen through.  I suppose this is good to keep the book readers some-what on their toes and the non-book readers a traditional sense of ‘the sh!t is really hitting the roof.’

Overall, last night’s episode was fairly cliffhanging albeit resolutionless.  To me, this season has been extremely resolutionless at many points, primarily because of the way the show jumps around so much that the individual stories will be requiring 8 episodes to finish up.  Regardless, the shows shining moment is the glorious return of Nikolaj Coster-Waldau’s Jaime Lannister after only being seen in episode one.  His classic [even wisdomous] snark replaces the hole felt with a lack of Tyrion and carried much of the show’s heart despite being depicted as one of the more villainous characters.  I’ll get into how he defines the shades of gray Game of Thrones installs in all its characters, Dany’s Dragons, and how little Jon Snow knows in the posts below.  Be free to discuss with me, but keep book spoilers to yourself!

**This symbol means that the following passage adheres to the following: [This doesn’t happen in the book, so I’m thoroughly interested in what will occur].  Trust me, it happened quite a bit this episode.
