A Game of Thrones - Genesis This Month

Focus Home Interactive announces a September 29 release date for A Game of Thrones - Genesis, a slight delay from the summer release window announced earlier this year for this real-time strategy game based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire books. Here are some new screenshots from the game, and here's the latest description:

Faithful to the world imagined by George R.R. Martin, A Game of Thrones - Genesis emphasizes the backstabbing and political intrigues which are common in Westeros and the fight for the Iron Throne. Command the assassination of an opponent's Great Lord, set up secret alliances, send a spy to take the place of the opponent's unit, or harass his trade routes to weaken his economy. Treasons, espionage, kidnapping and ransoms... treachery is everywhere, so always watch your back!

It is also very possible, by cleverly using all the low blows the game allows you to use, to earn victory without ever entering an open war or recruiting any army. A real first in a real-time strategy game!

Of course, military approach is valid as well! Raise an army, besiege enemy villages and castles, force them to submit to your rule, and crush all resistance. You truly have all options at your disposal to achieve victory and reach the Iron Throne!

I bought that $20 set and none of those issues though it's obviously a cheap printing. The text got closer to the edge of the page than it should have at one point in Book 2 but not even close to being cut off. Also a couple pages came loose but that's a much my fault as anyone. I'm really hard on things. And the font is small especially in Book 3 but that's because it's so lengthy. Book 4 had a larger, more widely spaced one, for example.

Yeah this series rocks. Hands down my favorite now. HBO turned me on to it too and I wish I hadn't been so late to the party but much better late than never. Waiting years and years between books woulda sucked too.
