- ‘Game of Thrones': Clues About the Ironborn and House Greyjoy From Real Viking History (Guest Blog)

Ironborn military power is underpinned by their slender, beautifully designed warships which allow them to strike at will along the Westerosi coastline, and so it’s tempting to compare them with the Vikings, the medieval Scandinavian raiders who brought terror to Europe for three centuries.When he discovers that Theon’s splendid neck chain was bought rather than stolen, Balon tears it from his son’s neck, snarling, “That bauble around your neck, did you pay the iron-price for it, or the gold?” Balon clearly is not the kind of medieval Scandinavian king who would be celebrated by his court poets (skalds) for distributing treasure; no one would praise him as a “breaker of rings” or a “thrower of gold” or even a “hater … of the flame-red dragon square,” to cite just a few of Old Norse poetry’s terms for the generous king.The military successes of the Viking-age Scandinavians — settling northern England, founding Dublin and establishing the duchy of Normandy — were possible because their ships could travel far up the great rivers of Europe.The Great Army which swept across northern England in 865 A.D. took horses from those they defeated and thus were mobile enough to achieve military success inland, away from the rivers and coastlines where they easily could regroup on their ships.The Ironborn’s faith is very different from any version of Viking religion that we know of, but their belief in life after death closely resembles a watery version of Valhalla, the god Odin’s great hall, where the valkyries bring heroes who die in battle.When Yara and Theon sailed to Meereen to put their 50 ships at the disposal of Daenerys Targaryen for her long-anticipated invasion of Westeros, Daenerys agreed to support Yara’s claim to the Salt Chair, the Ironborn throne.The Vikings may have left their homelands because population pressure made it hard for them to sustain a living by agriculture on the thin soils and limited flatlands of the Norwegian or Icelandic fjords.For most of the Viking Age, Vikings were already successful traders, dealing in foodstuffs, timber, furs, falcons and slaves all across the North Atlantic, settling into lives as merchants and craftsmen in thriving towns such as Bergen and Trondheim.
- ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ Opener Is ‘Tokyo Drift’ Meets ‘Deadpool,’ and That’s Kind of Great

The Golden Circle opener is anything to go by, everything ridiculous and exaggerated about the original action comedy is even more ridiculous and more exaggerated.Eggy isn’t having it, and fight ensues, from the street right into the back of Eggy’s car, which takes off speeding down London streets as Eggy and Hesketh (who, BTW, is now a cyborg) duke it out in the back seat.The Moore, but badass, vibe continues after Eggy defeats Hesketh, at which point the fight transitions to a car chase as Eggy drift-races around London before destroying the bad guys, then evading the cops (clearly he’s not sanctioned by the British government) by driving his car, broken windshield and all, into a pond, where it turns into a submarine.Lest you think the opener’s vibe was a bait and switch, Fox also brought two other clips that were equally fun, funny, and balls-out ridiculous.The first saw Channing Tatum plug a hole in a cask of priceless whiskey by spitting chewing tobacco at it (with a loud splat sealing the deal, the closest you can get to a fart joke without actually farting, I suspect).There’s a movie theater, a makeover salon, and even a quaint diner, which serves as Poppy’s lair.[...] it’s where she turns disobedient henchmen into ground beef, and also tests the loyalty of other henchmen by making them eat, and enjoy, human hamburgers.
- Little Games, Big Engagement
Friday Sep 23, 2011
One of the challenges brands often face when they look at getting into gaming is cost and time. Concepting a game people will actually play takes a great deal of time and specialized skills. Butsometimes, the simplest games can engage thousands of people if the right circumstances come together.
