For Tyrion, it means enacting revenge on the man who locked him up and would have seen him killed: his own father. Even though Tywin knows Tyrion didn’t poison Joffrey in The Purple Wedding, it’s still a convenient excuse to humiliate and lock up Tyrion. Considering their relationship, it’s not all that surprising Tyrion does kill Tywin. What’s more devastating is that he kills Shae, too, because his father has destroyed even that relationship. … [Read more...] about Tyrion catches Tywin with his pants down, and severs family ties forever

1812 is a rarity because it's a refined, smart wargame, with all the wooden cubes and historical accuracy you'd expect, but that's just a great deal of fun.

Katie Rife Yes, Daenerys Targaryen is the neoliberal of the A Song Of Ice And Fire universe, a charismatic but mostly policy-free figure who preaches peace and practices war. More specifically, she’s the Hillary Clinton of ASOIAF, riding her previous accomplishments on a wave of perceived inevitability into Westeros to claim the title she sees as rightfully hers. But you know what? Let her have it. Underneath her grand rhetoric about breaking chains and adopting entire populations, Daenerys is a practical leader, one who sees the virtue in surrounding herself with people who know what they’re talking about.

No wonder Martin seeks distractions from the mind-numbing chore of writing books, whether it’s The Big Bang Theory or his little hats, or working on the Game Of Thrones prequels, or simply giving in, as many of us do, to the siren call of video games. Making video games, in this case. … [Read more...] about George R.R. Martin just like the rest of us, puts off important projects by messing with video games
Using the leading fan theories from the r/gameofthrones, r/asoiaf, and r/gottheories subreddits, The Week has cobbled together a final season in which Theon kills Euron to win back the Iron Islands, Cersei has a miscarriage to satisfy the prophecy of Maggy the Frog, Jon gets turned into a dragon-riding White Walker by the Night King, and Dany dies giving birth to the baby she conceived with Jon (who, lest we forget,Night King using the Battle of Winterfell as a diversion so he can attack King’s Landing, … [Read more...] about Game Of Thrones’
