Middle-earthShadowOfMordor.jpgPicked up a copy of Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor the day it came out, September 30, 2014.  As I am typing this only played about an hour and a bit.  Since this game is open world there is lots to look at.  Right from the start the game can be a bit overwhelming.  There are lots of things  to look which can be a confusing.  It just take time.  For the gameplay is very nice.  Everything moves nice and smooth.  The combat is a mix of Assassin’s Creed and the Arkham games.  Which is cool because I enjoyed playing those game.  Will be back with an update once I get more into the game.

[Update]  At this point I have put in about six hours or so and only done two story missions.  Having funny just checking out the world.  Doing side missions and upgrade things is very fun.  The cool thing about this game the bad guy system called the Nemesis System.  Is different for everyone.  So far having a blast playing this game.

Middle-earthShadowOfMordor.jpgI know I all ready talked about Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor yesterday.  But going to again because there is a new trailer you witch is pretty cool.  This one is different because it shows off how everything will work in the game.  Not just pretty scenes and action.  It is about about nine minutes long.  The game is set to come out September 30, 2014.  Think this trailer will help people understand what this game is all about.  Check out the trailer called Everything You Need to Walk into Mordor Trailer > here or below.

Middle-earthShadowOfMordorThis up coming Tuesday (September 30, 2014) the game Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor will be out.  In a very rare move the game will be out  a week early.  It was first announced it would be out October 7, 2014.  At first was planning on getting this game after I got ones higher up on my must play list.  Now that  Assassin’s Creed: Unity has been pushed back.  Think I will pick this one up day one.  Pretty sure this will be a huge game taking lots of time to get though.  Which should make this next-gen new game price point, $70, worth it.

2D Boxshot Wizard v1.1There is yet another cool looking game coming out some time in the future I want to talking.  It is called Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor.  This looks like we will finely get a great Lord of the Rings game.  Most time Lord of the Rings games are just ok or very bad movie tie-ins.  This game how ever has it own back story and lead characters.  It is set take place between the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings.  Check out a game play video > here or below.  The game does look very fun.  They have mixed in some Assassin’s Creed and Batman Arkham elements.  Not sure when it will be out.  Let another game to keep my eye on.

The Hobbit Review

TheHobbitI know the second movie in The Hobbit series is out in theatres now.  But I have still not seen the first one.  Am a fan of the Lord of The Rings movies.  For some reason I still haven’t see The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, well on today.  Back during the boxing weeks sales at Wal-mart they all ways have great deals on movies.  Took a quick look and seen this on Blu-ray for only $10.   So I couldn’t pass that up.

Have read The Hobbit novel many years ago after reading the Lord of the Rings books.  So I can kind of remember what happens.  Have heard good things and bad things about his movie.  First off it is crazy how good every thing looks.  Sharp and clear even the CG.  Is the most beautiful movie I have seen.  Now for the bad.  I got bored watching this.  There is lots of action.  But some of it felt like it was being serious then the next was like a comedy.  Think the problem was it was way to long.  Its about two hours and forty minutes.  Glad I seen this movie so I now were the second one will pick up at.  But I will not be watching it again any time soon.
