Game of Thrones Episode 2: The Lost Lords is a great follow-up to the first episode in Telltale Games’ newest episodic series. The episode begins with a first look at Asher. Asher is the exiled son of Lord Forrester. He is an arrogant character who can think on his feet. The first time that Asher is introduced, it is moments before an attack. Asher is a more humorous character than anyone that has been seen in George R.R. Martin’s universe. Asher is likable, humorous, and in my opinion the best member of House Forrester.
The fight in which we first meet Asher is extremely well choreographed, and holds true to the form of brutal combat we have witnessed before in the Game of Thrones universe. The fight showcases teamwork between Asher and his partner, along with some one-liners and high stakes. This confrontation is a very interesting first appearance for Asher, and it makes me want to see where this character will go in future episodes.
The Lost Lords features appearances from characters such as Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) who do a perfect job of directly connecting the HBO and Telltale franchises. The Lost Lords makes the player face extremely tough choices. The choices made in Episode 2 will directly affect the relationship between the Forresters and Lord Whitehill. Game of Thrones Episode 2: The Lost Lords takes the narrative in an interesting direction, and makes me genuinely excited to see where the tale of House Forrester goes next.
