Video Review


The stutters are here as always, but don't seem as bad this time. The fight in the pits as Asher suffers the most, but wasn't bad enough to force any errors. As usual, several members of the TV cast make an appearance, and with the possible exception of Queen Targaryen, they always look kind of weird and incomplete.

Audio Review


With the exception of the relatively common syncing and chopping issues, the quality of the audio remains high. The new characters for the most part are acted very well. Toks Olagundoye, the Norwegian-Nigerian actress who voices Beskha, gives an amazing performance during the final scene (depending on your choices).

Final Thoughts

'A Nest of Vipers' is the best episode I have played in a Telltale game, passing even the amazing final episode of season two of 'The Walking Dead'. Despite its modest running time, it manages to set a new bar for the studio's storytelling. I always wait with anticipation for the next 'Game of Thrones', but now it's more serious than ever. If for some reason you have been putting off playing this series, now is as good a time as any to get involved.
