Tweets Of The Week

The Game Of Thrones / Firefly crossover we've all been waiting for, William Shatner on whether he'll guest star in Doctor Who and tributes to Lucasarts in the latest Tweets Of The Week (opens in new tab)

The return of everyone’s favourite boobs, blood and dragons series Game Of Thrones has left Twitter ablaze with chatter. This was inevitable, of course, but HBO’s social marketing team has been out in force over the last month or so, sending swag to celebs who have professed their love for the show on our social network of choice. Most recently, they’ve been sending out a series of house sigils (such as the Alan Tudyk/Wash Sigil to the left which left us aquiver with Game Of Thrones / Firefly potential); while in the run up to the show’s premiere personalised " House Boxes (opens in new tab) " were popping up in Twitpics and Vines all over celeb-filled feeds. It’s a savvy strategy. Rather than trying to force a trend via a hashtag, they spread the word via influential Tweeters with enough followers to make a significant impact. It’s not like they really need the publicity, of course, but as far as social marketing goes, few shows are doing it better.

@Josh_Friedman I love GoT but there's so many characters that eps sometimes feel like the curtain call number at Mama Mia. #everyonegetsaverse

@rianjohnson I will plant my flag on Portal being a prime example of sublime storytelling in a video game, precisely because it IS "just" a puzzle game.

@Paul_Cornell Doctor Who just made me cry. And loads of other parents, I should think.

@StaciaKane Let's not forget, companions are no longer companions. They solve everything and are Very Special while the Doctor watches. #doctorwho

@SamWitwer To the incredible artists at #Lucasarts who kept Star Wars relevant and alive for fans - You have my admiration and respect. Was an honor.

@grumpygamer Sad day today, but not surprising, you had to see that coming. I was employee #9 at Lucasfilm Games.

Brilliant! @thorn_bulle : Fermer Lucasart ? Disney a-t-il pensé aux conséquences ? pic.twitter.com/k6gM8FWVeJ

If I ever get the rights to Monkey Island back, first thing I'm going to make is Monkey Island Kart Racing.

@ManMadeMoon "Magnificult" - something very difficult to achieve, but hugely worth doing. Example; making the Warcraft movie is MAGNIFICULT.

@charltonbrooker Bioshock Infinite's alright, but spare me the surrounding philoso-wank. It's a game where you shoot guns and cast spells like a wizard.

To be clear, Bioshock Infinite is great fun. But *very* pretentious. Feels like the second Matrix movie crossed with Alice in Wonderland.
