Inside the Game of Thrones – Three to go: Hardhome

After seven relatively quiet weeks the fifth season of Game of Thrones finally picked up steam with the first two of its final three episodes: “Hardhome” and a “Dance of Dragons”. The anticipation surrounding what had come to be known as the turning point of each Game of Thrones season, the ninth episode, had cooled somewhat following the unexpectedly bombastic eighth entry. Whereas the books kept the events at Hardhome neatly tucked away at the edge of the world, with no Point-Of-View characters to bear witness to it, the series decided to unleash the wrath of the White Walker army and its Night King in earnest. The ninth episode took an even more daring sidestep away from the books, resulting in another stomach-twisting, tear-jerking moment that will have fans talking for weeks to come. Without further ado, let’s get to it.

In de Game of Thrones – Drie te gaan: Hardhome

Na zeven relatief rustige weken pakte het vijfde seizoen dik uit voor haar achtste aflevering, namelijk “Hardhome” en de negende aflevering: “Dance of Dragons.” The torenhoge verwachtingen die de negende aflevering normaliter omringen, denk maar eens terug aan de Red Wedding en het noodlot van Eddard Stark, zijn dit jaar wellicht iets minder hooggespannen gezien de knal die de achtste aflevering maakte. Waar de boeken de gebeurtenissen in Hardhome voornamelijk buiten het bereik van de lezer hield, gooide de serie Jon Snow en wij met hem vol in de actie. De Night King en zijn White Walker leger maakte hun waarachtige terugkeer op schokkende wijs bekend, en de negende aflevering liet nog maar eens zien dat Game of Thrones geen grenzen kent als het op sterfgevallen aankomt.

It’s Easter everybody, and you know what that means. It’s time to play some Metal Gear, while you and your family members were out looking at budding flowers and cuckooing chicks, we remained inside to plough through the entire Metal Gear Solid series in search of the series most obscure, hilarious or down-right disturbing Easter eggs. Hideo Kojima, renowned for his intricate (occasionally obtuse and winded) writing, has always had a knack for working strange and unexpected references and surprises into his titles. The Metal Gear Solid series, his Magnum Opus, has been tormented by his hijinks since its inception. In anticipation of Metal Gear Solid 5: The Phantom Pain’s September release, we’ve compiled a list of the cleverest Metal Gear Easter eggs.

Starting today, the Fanbot will upload Let’s Play video’s on a frequent basis, to keep you up to date on the biggest Fantasy games to hit the market.

The game casts the player as an unnamed hero tasked with collecting the souls of 18 harrowing Titans, who function as the game’s bosses. Can you weather the storm? Chris certainly had a little difficulty. But, there’s no better way to prepare for a journey such as this than watching someone else die trying.
