I've been writing about video games professionally for 12 years, and I've been at Forbes for 9. I'm here for review and commentary on PC, Xbox, PlayStation and Nintendo Switch games, and I'm a bit obsessed with Pokemon GO and Destiny 2. In my spare time I do consulting, and I've been getting worse at the banjo for easily 8 years now.
I cover sports and video games like Madden, MLB The Show, Undisputed, EA UFC, Dragon Ball Z, Call of Duty and more. You can also find me previewing/recapping MMA and Boxing events with the Perfect 10 prediction-results formula.
Action, violence and general mayhem is just one aspect of GoT though. Hence it was fitting that the Red Wedding was flipped on it's head in the opening scene of season seven as it revisited a major moment, laid the foundations of the mayhem lurking on horizons north, south and east - maybe west - early, then we settled into the nuances of the game. These nuances of the game of thrones holds equal, if not more appeal than the mayhem and epic battle scenes. In a season that will see all sorts of mayhem, the landscape needed to be set and drawn out while the intricacies of interpersonal relationships were given a moment to flourish.Arya succinctly dropped a scripted gem after poisoning a bunch of blokes:
I love these GoT episodes. There's room for conversation to flourish, for characters to unveil aspects of their personality that we weren't treated to previously and we were given the political wheelin' and dealin' of 'the game' in all its glory. I'm not sure how much of this we will get in the coming episodes as there's plenty of action to get through, but this season started with GoT flexing its narrative muscle.
We have recently been to Croatia , it is insane the amount of tourist that Games of thrones brought to Dubrovnik. We enjoyed it, but I wished I visited before to enjoy this stunning place without the crowd! 59ce067264
