Telltale’s “Game of Thrones” Is Coming Soon!

Let me start off by saying, this game is going to probably be one of the best narrative based games we have seen to date for a couple of reasons. First, it’s “Game of Thrones”, and perhaps that alone is enough for many of us to jump on board. If you haven’t read the books or at least seen the show, you’re missing out on an amazing universe full of political intrigue, lust, power, war, heroes, villains and a rich fantasy environment that these characters call home. This is George R.R.

Beyond the beefed up hardware and available software that can only be found on the PC, we enjoy something few console gamers have the ability to, modding. Modding is a huge force in PC gaming that keeps games relevant for years after the vanilla version has been worn down, just look at how “Skyrim” is still in use years after its release and how content is still churned out for it on a daily basis. But modding can be challenging, especially when games are not on Steam and have access to its modding support via the workshop, but the Curse client, a simple program from Curse, is a great way to mod some of your games easily, especially if you are into MMOs.
