    What if GRRM actually worked on a Japanese dating sim?

    Since he actually said he's "consulting," I'm guessing his involvement will be minimal. I'm sure this won't keep them from plastering his name all over their marketing campaign, though.

    The question is: how much of the game's budget went into acquiring that name?

    I've never read Elric. I pointed out Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser isn't better than ASOIAF to a wannabe fantasy pseud, fag.

    Neither Elric nor The Black Company can hold a candle to Martin at his worst. I don't know about Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser since I still haven't read it, but I'm not expecting much.
    Taste (or lack of it, to be more precise) aside, moderators should move edgy shitposting to an already existing thread.

    In the Age of Wieners the world was unformed, shrouded by cum. A land of gray wieners, Archwieners and Everlasting Dragon Wieners. But then there was Fire and with fire came wiener. Heat and cold, life and death, and of course, light and dark. Then from the dark, They came, and found the Wieners of Lords within the flame. Nito, the First of the Dead Wieners, The Wiener Witch of Izalith and her Wieners of Chaos, Gwyn, the Wiener of Sunlight, and his faithful wiener knights. And the Furtive Pygmy wieners, so easily forgotten.

    With the strength of Lord Wieners, they challenged the Dragon Wieners. Gwyn's mighty wieners peeled apart their stone wieners. The Wiener Witches weaved great wienerstorms. Nito unleashed a miasma of wieenrs, death and disease. And Seath the Wienerless betrayed his own, and the Dragon Wieners were no more.

    Thus began the Age of Wieners. But soon the flames will fade and only Dark Wieners will remain. Even now there are only embers, and man sees not light, but only endless wieners. And amongst the living are seen, carriers of the accursed Dark Wiener Sign.

    Yes, indeed. The Dark Wiener Sign brands the Undead Wieners. And in this land, the Undead Wieners are corralled and led to the north, where they are locked away, to await the end of the world... This is your fate.

    Only, in the ancient legends it is stated, that one day an undead shall be chosen to leave the undead asylum, in pilgrimage, to the land of Ancient Wieners, Wieneran.

    It doesn't matter what the theme or what GRR is writing if the combat of the game is just Souls like again and again.

    A decade of dodge roll run hit doge roll run hit will make every Form Software games dull.

    Sekiro at least has variety in the combat.

    Even the later Black Company books were substantially better than anything GRRM has ever written, and also managed to have fewer scat scenes than aSoIaF despite being set in fantasy India.

    I wish From Software would make a game about being GRRM. At least the rolling would be fun.

    Likely another derivative of Souls with shallow mechanics.

    Lol like hit 2 times dodge roll run hit 2 times dodge roll run combat of Darks Souls is deep to begin with. Variety is useless when the most mechanically sound choice in the game is the most basic one.

    I assume it will be open-world souls with advanced multiplayer like Monster Hunter.
