– Spoiler Review –
“A Nest of Vipers” is another great and solid entry in Telltale’s Game of Thrones series, where strangely enough the big reveal we were all waiting for–who the traitor in the Forrester small council is–turns out be a letdown, while the ending provides about as much a shock as the first episode’s ending. With this being the penultimate episode, the choices you make (and have made) will result in varying differences in each player’s final episode, which is what you really want and hope a game from Telltale can deliver.
(UPDATE: I won’t be reviewing this series any more, nor its finale, which I finally completed two years later. It, like much of this series, was rather lackluster, and left me feeling like most of my decisions didn’t matter as there was an outcome planned anyways. The North Grove? Not explained beyond there being creepy magic to help slay the White Walkers. By the end, at least for me, the Forrester family has less members alive then the Starks and they are no where near as important. There will be a second season, so if you enjoyed this then don’t fret there’s more to come, but I’d be doubtful to return as I’ll be too busy watching the show or re-reading the books (or reading a new one, if George R.R .Martin ever gets one out!). Good luck playing and thanks for checking out the Manor; stay awhile for our primary focus, Star Wars, if you’d like!)
