A Game of Thrones: Genesis Announced

Focus Home Interactive announces they are publishing A Game of Thrones: Genesis, a new strategy game by Cyanide Studio (Pro Cycling Manager, Blood Bowl), based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series of fantasy novels. Accompanied by a couple of pieces of panoramic artwork, the announcement says the game will require you to "match your political prowess with your strategic and military skills." Here's more:

"A Game of Thrones: Genesis" plunges you into the heart of the battles and intrigues between the Families that shaped the Kingdom of Westeros. However, victory does not necessarily result from brute force. The innovative game mechanics provide players with numerous paths to success: will you opt for a military, economic or diplomatic approach? Trickery, treachery and deceit are widespread and you will constantly have to watch your back if you want to avoid a bitter defeat! Peacefully or forcefully annex surrounding territories, besiege enemy castles, send spies to infiltrate behind enemy lines, assassinate trouble-making officers or capture them to ask for a ransom... When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die. There is no middle ground!

You hate him for doing other stuff than Ice and Fire? You hate him for being a huge nerd who likes miniatures and games? You hate him for his passions?

Wow. If so, you are truly close-minded and navel-gazing.

And if you are talking about the splitting of the books, he has said he regretted doing that and in Dance there will be chapters from characters in Feast whose story in that book ended in a cliffhanger. It won't be purely POV from characters not in Feast.

It's amazing how one can construe so much from so little. I said nothing of the sort that you are referring to. But alas, this is the internet and every asshole can spew his 'opinion' en mass.

As far as your last paragraph, that is what I was referring to. However, a regret doesn't unscrew a pregnant woman. He ruined the series by breaking the books up. Sir Davos anyone?
