A few odds and ends related to Game of Thrones this week...

Most interesting to me is from the UK's Guardian via Westeros.


Irish correspondent Henry McDonald writes that the Northern Irish film industry is “booming”, and that it’s fuelled predominantly by HBO’s series choosing to film there. It’s an interesting look at the industry side of things, and some impressive numbers are thrown around.

And then, at the end, this:

“Game of Thrones, however, remains the anchor project for Northern Ireland’s burgeoning film industry and it is understood that, after the second series is completed, filming will resume there in the next few years.”

It seems safe to suppose that “in the next few years” should be understood as “for the next few years”. But it’s the plural that’s interesting. Given the interviews that the reporter conducted for his quotes, did some of the Northern Irish industry insiders reveal confidence that Game of Thrones is a lock for filming there for multiple additional seasons? We’ve all heard the rumors that HBO might opt to order seasons three and four, rumors that we’re told are fairly rife among members of cast and crew, although no one has really pinpointed a source. But where there’s smoke…


Up next...
GRRM updated his blog with a year-end recap.
"What a long, strange trip it's been, this 2011.

The ball has already fallen in Times Square, so the new year is on hand back on the east coast. Here in New Mexico, as I write, it's still 2011... for another forty-five minutes or so, at least.

A year ago, this very evening, I was just being released from the hospital after a week's stay, including the worst Christmas of my life. It was my first hospitalization since 1973, and a scary time for me and my loved ones. Hard not to look back, and reflect on the close call I had. It was an infection, as I wrote last January, and the antibiotics knocked it out... but if I had delayed going to the emergency room another day or two, things could have been much worse.

Things turned out for the best, though, and I'm glad they did. 2011 was a hell of a year.

Lastly, Cyanide Studio has opened their official website for the Game of Thrones Video Game.
But wait, there’s more!
The official Game of Thrones game website has gone live, and it’s a small trove of new information, including a short clip from a cutscene, character information (including revealing that Qhorin Halfhand is in the game—one wonders if they’ll adjust the character model to look more like Simon Armstrong), information on locations (for the Wall, these include Mole’s Town, the Gift, and the abandoned Night’s Watch castle of Icemark, while future location reveals are hinted at with links to Riverspring and Castlewood—original locations presumably connected to Alester Sarwyck’s storyline—and King’s Landing), a downloadable wallpaper, and more.

It’s nicely put together, and does rather whet the appetite for more information.
