There’s a new Star Wars out, have you seen it yet? It’s more likely than ever that the answer is “no.” Solo: A Star Wars Story, the origin tale of everyone’s favorite stuck-up, half-witted, scruffy-looking nerf herder, has been struggling hard at the box office since its release on May 25.
While we’ve seen some concept art from the last series of Game of Thrones, tonight I thought it’d be cool to look at some of the VFX work done on season 7.
Photographer Jason Laboy recently captured this Game of Thrones cosplay jamboree in New York’s Central Park, and not only did it feature a whole lot of swords, but a ring as well.
As they have many times before, German studio Karakter were employed by HBO to help out on the latest series of Game of Thrones, to work on not just VFX and general concept stuff, but also to design locations like Dragonstone as well.
While Game of Thrones relies heavily on CG effects, it also uses tons of real-world locations to bring places like King’s Landing to life.
You see a lot of Daenerys cosplay around, but most of it tends to focus on her earlier appearances in Game of Thrones. So it’s nice to see someone focus on something a bit more recent.
Game of Thrones is a cultural wrecking ball, but despite being around for seven years now (or 21 counting the books), it hasn’t left much of a mark on video games. There might be a very good reason for that.
There are some incredibly talented cosplayers out there, but often the ones who achieve widespread recognition are recognised instead for an uncanny facial resemblance to the characters they’re cosplaying. While, ostensibly, the point of cosplay is to resemble the character as much as possible, cosplay is so much more…
Game of Thrones is shot in some pretty exotic locations, and also has some great CG work, but not everything you see on the screen is a mix of real life and computer wizardry. There’s still room for good old-fashioned matte painting when it comes to the scenic backdrops.
If ever there was an entertainment property ripe to be transformed into a Game of War-style mobile multiplayer strategy game, it’s Game of Thrones. It looks like Warner Bros. and Turbine have finally gathered enough clip art to make Game of Thrones: Conquest happen.
Season seven of Game of Thrones has drawn to a close. Before we brave the long winter between seasons, it’s time for one final bonus Kotaku Splitscreen episode.
In honor of the season finale of Game of Thrones, Arby’s graced nine locations across the country with that king of Renaissance Fair fare, the giant turkey leg. Snacktaku journeyed to the restaurant’s seat of power in Atlanta to capture this rare, tasty prize.
Season seven wraps up tonight. What’s the worst thing that could happen?
Starting Sunday, August 27 at limited locations across the U.S., Arby’s is going to be selling big honking turkey legs. Just handing meat-covered bones out the drive-through window. Here is your meat covered bone, sirrah. Now get thee hither to yon Game of Thrones finale.
Well, that was kind of a bummer.
It was a jam-packed episode of Game of Thrones this week, and there’s a lot to talk about. Let’s get into it, with another bonus episode of Kotaku Splitscreen.
Well, that sure was an episode of Game of Thrones.
