    HBO’s own inconsistency with Jon’s ending.

    I took the shot of him looking back at the closing gate as him turning his back on the Southern world, Night's Watch included (cause wtf are they watching for anyway?), for good. Bran knew the organization was in shambles/barely existed and used it as an out for Jon to go live with the Wildlings.

    Video Games: Devils Die Twice

    Wilkinson: Regarding the collaboration with George R. R. Martin, can you further explain how this collaboration came about and in what role it has served throughout the project? Miyazaki: I suppose the start of this collaboration came from the fact that I myself am I huge fan of Mr. Martin’s work. I loved “A Song of Ice and Fire” as well as the “Tuf Voyaging” series, however if I had to pick a favorite I would probably say “Fevre Dream.” I personally see “Fevre Dream” as a masterpiece among vampire fantasy and had even previously recommended it to all new employees. Me being such a known fan of Mr. Martin caused our executive business director Eiichi Nakajima to reach out to him with the expectation that we would get turned down. However, we were then given the rare opportunity to talk one-on-one with Mr. Martin which was an incredibly fun and stimulating experience. It was then that I strongly felt that I wanted to work with Mr. Martin. I am still unable to put into words how grateful I am to Mr. Martin for agreeing to our offer. The actual collaboration itself begun with Mr. Martin ever so politely confirming what sorts of themes, ideas as well as many game-related aspects I had envisioned for the game. This allowed us to have many free and creative conversations regarding the game, in which Mr. Martin later used as a base to write the overarching mythos for the game world itself. This mythos proved to be full of interesting characters and drama along with a plethora of mystical and mysterious elements as well. It was a wonderful source of stimulus for me and the development staff. Elden Ring’s world was constructed using this mythos and stimulus as a base. Even I myself find it hard to contain my excitement from time to time. We hope that everyone else is looking forward to the world we have created. Wilkinson: What are some differences when compared to your previous titles (especially Dark Souls)? Miyazaki: If I were to put aside the world full of fresh stimulus thanks to our collaboration with Mr. Martin, I would have to say the biggest difference is it being open world. Due to this, the scale of the world and its narrative, as well as the depth and freedom of exploration have increased dramatically. It is without a doubt our biggest title yet in terms of sheer volume. There are many definitions to the term “open world,” and I might not be phrasing it correctly, but we have simply tried our own approach to a game with a large, open field to play in. It is a world full of danger and threats, as well as many areas ripe for exploration. Among those areas, you will also find intricately designed, multi-layered castles and such.

    Did Bran warg into Drogon?

    Doubt he can warg him. Hes just gonna use his all seeing wizard powers to try and track him down I guess.
  5. Fuck that, they broke the wheel. Sam will be the first Grand Maester with a wife and kid.

    Daenerys’s death should have been the end

    The time jump leading to the council and shitty "funny" moment with Edmure felt so bizarre
  7. Time gaps exist as do epilogues. Cry all you want, the endgame will probably be the same.

    The Six Kingdoms

    A somewhat democratic society with an all seeing all knowing unwanting wizard robot leading it is the best Westeros is gonna get.

    Books vs Show: How much difference?

    You'll find you're in the minority People pretend like books 4 and 5 are awesome now but just a few years back huge chunks of them were relentlessly shat on. Quentyn and Brienne especially.
  11. He isnt stuck in the past

    "Bittersweet" can't happen in the show

    She went psycho, he'll get over it. He saved the world. I took him looking back at the door closing as meaning he'd be leaving everything South behind and living with the wildlings. Like he said, is there even a Nights Watch anymore? What would they be guarding anyway? The Others are dead and the wildlings are friendly now.
  13. They clearly said he has visions of the past present and future

    "Bittersweet" can't happen in the show

    I mean its sad he cant chill with his family, but they all took separate paths anyway. I think he'd be happier beyond the Wall with Ghost and his Wildling friends more than anywhere else.
