I think the game has awesome promise, and every bit will be down to the writing. I honestly think we should pay attention to this despite our doubts (weird shadow ghoul guy anyone?...) and be safe in the knowledge that it's not the same people as Genesis.

Which is fine with me. Though I would have a loved a Skyrim-style game for Game of Thrones (the kind where you're born, I don't know, a bastard, and chose your own path, between houses, orders, religions and whatnot...Skyrim style), another game as good as The Witcher set in Westeros I can definitely live with.

Also Ran how are we to regard this game Canon wise?

But as for this, ide say it has potential. As far as the whole set character would fit better, ide still love a create a character and choose your own path type of gameplay. Not so much skyrim like, but a bit of creative freedom would be good.

I never got that vibe. To me it resembled LOTR a lot more then ASOIAF for the story, and the Warhammer RPG for the magic and the fade. George Martin didn't invent knights, kings, castles, intrigue, betrayal or armies(human or otherwise). Tolkien did invent orcs, and the modern interpretation of wizards, dwarves, trolls and elves. DA:O is high fantasy, not dark fantasy.
If this game is anything close to Dragon Age, in terms of content, voice-acting, characters, areas to explore, replayablility, enemies to defeat.. etc, then it'll be one of the best rpgs released in a long time.
I can't understand how people can make the connection that any fantasy game that has elements of medieval history or fiction is a rip-off of Martin's world. Skyrim has giants, mammoths, dragons, a human that's "dragonborn", undead with glowing blue eyes and a northern setting. Martin didn't invent any of these, either. The Witcher 2 has multiple kings vying for power, a villian named the "Kingslayer", intrigue, betrayal, swords, and a castle as a setting in the game. Is it a rip-off of Martin too?
Or maybe they're all a rip-off of Memory, Sorrow and Thorn.

ETA: Here's a 1UP article from 2008. There are others:
Like I said, to call DA a "rip-off" is very much overboard. But that they were directly inspired by ASoIaF moreso than LotR is unquestionable, since the aspects of ASoIaF that inspired them simply aren't features of LotR.

I still don't consider it a rip-off of either. I enjoyed the game thoroughly too. What about you? It was no BG2, but that bar is set pretty high.

Cyanide is a small company, their resources are very limited, so you can't expect much. I haven't played Genesis because every review I read was terrible. The RPG will be the same, a very crappy game, which best feature is the line "A Game of Thrones" on the cover.
If you really really need to know the lore the game might add, wait a year or two and throw less money out the window.

Many people are misguided in their tastes, I feel, and fail to see things as they would actually mesh together from a complete game perspective. Not to say anyone here is, but one must remember the importance of the decisions made. We'll see more clearly as more information arises, but my hopes are high.
