The Five Most Powerful Characters of Game of Thrones

Cunning, wit, strength, appeal, and a lot more, are some of the few traits that make GoT fans love the characters in the series. Not only that each actor plays the role so well that fans’ anger from Joffrey, to Cersei, and to Ramsay bore such depth in the hearts of the fans and there seemed to be a virtual loud cheer emanating from them when Joffrey died and when Ramsay Bolton was ravaged to death by his own hounds. Indeed, they lived up to their roles and they brought such strong emotions to the crowd of viewers. Kudos to their extraordinary acting skills!
All of them played their roles really well that fans couldn’t wait for each next episode to be aired. However, let’s look at the five most powerful characters in this out-performing series.

Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke). Even non-diehard GoT fans heard the words Khaleesi and dracarys, and these seem to emanate such power and influence especially to real fans. Her transformation from that innocent-looking teenage girl to a ruler of many people and soldiers, the Unsullied and the Dothraki, Emilia has lived up her best Khaleesi. She has lots of titles; breaker of chains, Queen of the Andals, Mother of Dragons, The Unburnt, and more. She is Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen. Well, enough said.

Arya Stark (Maisie Williams). What a great transformation life in war has given the youngest daughter of the Lord of Winterfell. Her seek for vengeance has made her soul strong and her rage and blindness (emotional and literal) even made her stand amidst death threatening to follow her around. Yet she made her vengeance more dramatic, a classic performance. The wolf blood in her has gotten her to many adventures defying death and captivity. She is someone not to be tamed like Nymeria, her direworlf. The girl is no longer ‘no one’.

Tyrion Lannister (Peter Drinklage). Peter deserves a standing ovation for his performance on this series. His character proves that size and appearance cannot be underestimated, including offscreen. He has the brain. Well, he drinks and he knows things, that’s what he does. Peter is the Emmy-winning star of the show for a reason.

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey). If Aegon Targaryen was the Mad King, well, Cersei Lannister is the Mad Queen. She is a monster in all aspects. Her obsession to keep her children safe resulted to all of their deaths. Her ways are vile starting from committing incest with her brother, threatening her subjects, and to the bombing of holiest place of King’s Landing which resulted to Tommen’s death, her last son alive. Lena has always been at her best as Cersei Lannister. Another award-winning performance for her.

Jon Snow (Kit Harrington). Nobody wanted to see Eddard’s bastard dead. It was an outrage at the season finale of season five when Jon Snow bathed his own blood after being stabbed to the heart by the members of the Night’s watch. Yet he was brought back to life from the dead in season 6. A true protagonist he is, then. With the new knowledge that he shares the same blood as Daenerys, in fact, Daenery’s nephew, the fans are more excited to see what’s in store for the King in the North.

If we are to add one more character to the list, Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) would be next. She has undergone much turmoil in life, married at least twice, ravaged and disrespected, yet she still stands, head high, and stronger than ever. Catelyn Stark must be proud of her had she been alive. She is one of the most satisfying characters, players in this series.

 

The Brilliance Displayed by a Game Called Hay Day

The arrival of one of the most anticipated titles of the past few years seems to be something akin to a gaming epiphany, so to speak. Amid rumor, bad news and confusion, SuperCell’s strange week in the videogame industry spotlight reveals nothing except that this is one company that knows games and gamers, even if everything else is up in the air.

What game are we talking about? Hay Day, of course. With its ambitious goal of taking mobile gamers to places that only PC players had been previously (online), developer Supercell has gloriously succeeded in full 3D — with vibrant, colorful textures to boot. Taking an obvious page from the premier simulators, multiplayer antics of previous series, Hay Day, in fact, more refines a formula than redefines a genre.

While countless previews have hit the web and print magazines outlining its general mechanics and gameplay, for the uninitiated, Hay Day is a farming simulation game that can either be played online.

Prepare for an overload the minute you plunge into an online room filled with Hay Day-obsessed folk speaking every language and eager to level up their characters just like you. Navigation and signing up for game is amazingly easy for first-timers, but you’ll have to contend with some strangely delayed character rendering and the annoying habit of speech “bubbles” clogging up your screen if there are tons of people in the lobby.

The structure of the game is this: to grow up a farm from scratch.But there’s a downside to every group experience, virtual or physical. Grabbing diamonds sometimes boils down to who gets to them the fastest, but this is also part of the strategy in Hay Day. Open new window for more information on Hay Day and its updated hack.

SuperCell has done a commendable job giving gamers all sorts of ways to communicate with one another, be it simple mail, cards or universal “translators.” While the universal bit doesn’t work as smoothly as we’d hoped (it makes gamers scroll through a clumsy network of preset phrases), the effort is definitely there and makes asking someone who doesn’t speak English “Where are you from?” easier than breaking out a foreign-language dictionary.

Though Sega has pulled off the unthinkable feat of placing a high-quality online farming simulation game, the project doesn’t come off without a few hitches. Yes, Hay Day does have a lot of slowdown that occurs during big farm maps with loads of elements and players running around. Yes, there is lag that will really confuse players who see their friends appearing and reappearing at odd locations on the screen. Yes, there are instances of hard crashes and soft crashes that will boot you off the server so you’ll have reconnect. Yes, the game could use more diversity in its farm designs and more brain-work in its overly simplistic “step on this switch and have a friend step on the other” puzzles

BUT (and it’s a big “but”) this is a game that’s so expertly constructed in its pick up ‘n’ play controls, mechanics, simple but well-plotted systems and painfully gorgeous graphics (SuperCell clearly gets something out of the DC that loads of other third parties can’t seem to figure out) that it’s best to keep your opinions to yourself until you’ve played it online. Then, make up your mind whether you want to trash the game (probably not) or keep playing and get your farm to level 62. For most gamers, the answer is the latter. With a high addiction factor and groundbreaking console design, this isn’t a game that any mobile owner should pass up. And it stands as a testament, flaws and all, that SuperCell, no matter what it decides to do in the future or how it’s gonna do it, is delivering the content that will dictate what most gamers will see on other systems for years to come.
