The big, final decision in A Nest of Vipers, the penultimate episode in Telltale's Game of Thrones series, demonstrates the strength of the developer's player-choice-based storyline. It's the peak of two characters that have been forced to consider what...

A Nest of Vipers è un buon episodio all'interno di questa prima stagione di Game of Thrones. I ritmi serrati, l'impostazione cinematografica e gli approfondimenti psicologici su alcuni dei personaggi compensano almeno in parte la mancanza di un...

The potential of powerful, story-altering choices is largely blown on an episode full of out-of-character portrayals and padding scenes that don't move us any closer to the finish line. Mira's interaction with Cersei is a highlight, and the ending is a...
