The Game of Thrones RPG's Combat Does a Fine Dragon Age Impression

You know what would be awesome? A game that played like Dragon Age but featured locations and characters from George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series of books (now a major television series). Watching this combat trailer for Cyanide Studio's Game of Thrones role-playing game, I'd say that dream might soon be a reality.


At least from a combat perspective, that is. That rotary menu; the characters on the side in little circles; the dog sidekick; yep, it definitely has that Dragon Age flavor. Oh, it's got its unique features, like multi-classing and queuing up special attacks. Plus it lets you play as a Waterdancer, which could be the coolest character class ever.

As long as it doesn't pick up on any of Dragon Age II's bad habits, I think it'll be fine.


Speaking of water dancers, whatever happened to Syrio Forel? Last I saw of the guy, he was beating up trained, armed knights with a wooden sword...I don't think he's ever even mentioned again after that. :/
