As for the other two categories Kevin Spacey won for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series for his performance in House of Cards.  And the cast of Downton Abbey took home the award for Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Drama Series.

Telltales’ Game of Thrones Series Episode 2 First Look

Telltale Games has just released the trailer for the second episode in the 2nd episode in their Game of Thrones: A Telltale Game Series.  Along with the trailer we have confirmation for the release date for all platforms.

The 2nd episode will continue directly after the events of the first.  If you haven’t played the first episode, Iron From Ice, I implore you to.  Iron From Ice does a fantastic job at introducing three of the five playable characters. And doing what I originally thought would be impossible to do in a video game, bringing the atmosphere from both the books and the show to life in a game.  From the looks of it the second episode will introduce us to the fourth playable character in the game, Asher Forrester, the exiled son who will be our eyes into Essos.  In episode one we saw some familiar faces from the show such as Tyrion, Cersei, Margaery, and Ramsay Snow.  Episode 2 will continue this trend by introducing fan favorite characters such as Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen.
