My wish:

I hope it isn't as seemingly nails as Sekiro.

I don't even read or watch Game of Thrones and I know he should be finishing his own damn books

I'm going to call bullshit on this for now. Didn't Martin turn down a cameo in the last season of GoT because he wanted to prioritise the book? Can't imagine he'd have picked up a second gig as a writer for a game, if so.

Considering he released Fire and Blood which is a meaty 736 pages just last November I'm beginning to wonder just how dedicated he is to the last 2 books in the series.

He'll only be a hack if he doesn't give in to the massive peer pressure to make Cersei the overall series winner.
Everyone knows She's the best.

At the moment my judgement is a bit off (I voted for the Lib Dems just before they joined the coalition and decided to commit suicide, then voted to stay in Europe, I thought Trump was super guilty and I didn't think they'd cancel the TV show Travellers) but I'm due to be right about something soon :fp: .

I wouldn’t even be surprised if this turns out to be true, as much as fans want him to concentrate on ASOIAF this seems to be the last thing he himself actually wants to do! As ridiculous as it sounds I’m hoping that Winds of Winter and A Dream of Spring release within a year or two of each other, highly unlikely though :(

Don't care about this dude, but the premise of the game sounds legit. Count me in.

I just can't see FromSoftware working with George R.R. Martin. Game of Thrones is barely a thing here in Japan - the only people who know what it is are non-Japanese and its blend of violence, sex and cussin' are pretty much the antithesis of any popular J-drama.

The only link I can see is that Dark Souls is sort of western medieval fantasy, but even then, it doesn't feel like a great fit. FromSoftware games are light on exposition, whereas Martin's stuff drowns in it. Seems a bit like wish-fulfillment to me.

I don't mean to police the thread, and I really don't mind the level of GoT/ASoIaF chatter we're currently at, but please be aware not to drop any spoilers. Ta. <3 <3 <3

Sekiro has shown/is showing this isn't always the case. I'm not saying it's Persona levels of "tell-don't-show" but there's a coherent story told by actual characters this time.

Also, I'd argue that even the Soulsborne games have a common thread with Martin's writing. He's all about the world-building, from the minute to the meta and Souls is absolutely of that jive too. It's just...hidden. Behind weapon descriptions.
