  1. Doesn't this game have some pay to play system where you can only play like one scenario per day with your warband for free?
  2. Hard West is a good Indie title if you like X-Com /Fallout 1-2 style battling and Western settings
  3. No. Bran realized that he wouldn't be able to Warg out of Hodor and escape because Hodor would no longer hold the door closed. He imprinted Hodor with that singular purpose in the past to enable his own escape.
  4. Way early in the thread I made a similar observation. Can't connect the dots on why Ned would have kept him a secret though.
  5. They would actually be a perfect match for the Dothraki since they fight int phalanx formations with spearks/pikes. That's pretty much what you want against light cavalry. The same advantage wouldn't necessarily translate to heavy cavalry or foot soldiers.
  6. Yeah - that's a pretty ridiculous thing to say. The entire Northern and Western part of the island is rain forest and cliffs/mountains and for 9.5 months of the year is wet, windy and cold
  7. Have not time these days so have been playing FTL so that I can count on being killed at every moment and walking away from the computer in frustration. Ordered Overwatch but likely will not be on playing until Sunday/Monday ish
  8. If this came across at all like something that was contrived late to close off a loose end I *might* agree with you. The fact that this was always the design and that it made for a powerful and poignant moment for the characters and the implication of it maybe shows that this isn't the show/books for you?
  9. They didn't alter the events as we witnessed them. There may be other quantum universes where other things happen but we are seeing a single threaded universe where those things did/will happen. Given the three-eyed raven's reaction either it's never happened before or there are bad things that can happen from it. Regardless, it's not common or easy and unlikely to be overused. In fact, the way it was used, in that one small but significant moment speaks more to the brilliance of the writing.
  10. Believe it was just a key. They already knew where the old guy was. Just couldn't penetrate the magic of the place.
  11. Right. White Walkers commanded them to kill everything they see so they chased Bran & co. down the corridor. . White Walkers were back in the main chamber so provided Bran gets out of site, the WWs will do wander around a bit aimlessly in the immediate area but not venture too far or have much ability to find them other than dumb luck.
  12. Zombies don't think. They kill. They see things to kill, they chase things to kill. This really isn't that difficult.
  13. You don't think that Dany taking over the Dothraki and the Kind of the Iron islands planning to bring her a fleet aren't moving along her plotline? King's Landing will likely be culminating next week or two. They need an entire episode for that likely. They need to take the Arya stuff a bit slower because she needs to be a changed person by the time she is reintroduced to the main threads. The only other option would be to just now show her for a season.
  14. Saw something recently about an American style in South Korea, maybe(?), that was doing very well.
  15. I agree this was a bit weak. I think the answer lies in the army of the dead. They have no brains on their own. They are told to kill, they kill what they see. They have no ability to think on their own, to choose to track (or have the ability to track). The White Walkers are still some distance away in the mound and maybe at this point either are writing Bran off as not a thread now that the thee eyed crow is dead or were somehow otherwise impacted by the death of one of their number.
  16. Pretty sure the spear was dragon glass. The cave is old, dragon glass tends to appear as relics either from the First Men or the Children. Makes sense that either or both of them would have been in this particular spot at some point.
  17. This is one of those posts that I know I should bother with: Time is a flat circle /Wooderson. Bran didn't actually change time as Hodor was Hodor'd right from the start. Anything that has happened to the point we have witnessed happened because Bran did or did not change time in the past. They can't suddenly make Ned be alive or some garbage because that would have already been the reality we witnessed. Second, he didn't just fry Hodor's brain - he gave it a singular purpose meant for that moment far in his future. In an episode where so many people sacrifice their lives for Bran to live, Hodor's is the ultimate, because it literally was his entire life that was sacrificed, not just his death. It's pretty powerful stuff and pretty brilliant by Martin.
  18. 16.25 is considered a good deal? I have a few pairs of Ex-Officio from a 2 for 1 a year or two back but $16 for a single pair of underwear is ridiculous, even for good underwear.
  19. What's coming out for PS4 in the next month or so? Looks like I'll be spending the summer without my PC so it's console gaming only.
